Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus and have seen UC police efficiently provide safety especially last year when a professor was killed.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Some Greek houses show lack of diversity obviously depending on the fraternity or sorority.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletic facilities are indeed important and most students take advantage of them.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: it is safe. Although recently there was a murder, but I think that's rare. Personally I will not go back late, and stay late. Although the "gun" problem do exist, especially for parents that they are very worried about the campus safety.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: the application fee is a bit high.. higher than other schools. Only career office provide help, you still need to apply, prepare yourself. That's common, but sometimes you have to apply for multiple positions, and that take times

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The campus housing is great, the only problem is it is too little for graduate students. I have wait for more than 4 months, and I could not get one.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Everyone has their own style, so you can be whoever you like to be

4 College Senior

Athletics: UCLA's performance is one of the best in the country. Once there is a saying the the medal UCLA earned is more from one country. There are various sports facilities, clubs. When there is match, school will announce and inform every student to cheer up the athletes

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The career office is helpful, that provide a list of internships that is highly related to our positions;

Program director is great, she frequently share the current progress, news, what to expect in the future to all the students. There are plenty of events on the calendar that you could join, there are many clubs you could participate in

5 College Junior

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Financial issues are a real problem for me at this school -- so much so that the housing has even revoked my meal plan for months at a time and I was restricted in enrolling in my classes due to tardiness in payment. Academics wise, I believe this school has great opportunities, should you choose to fully take advantage of them.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: UCLA prides itself on the alumni that graduated from our school.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have an actual police force right on campus. We also have students whose jobs are to escort you from place to place, should you feel unsafe. However, there have been numerous times me and my friends have been sexually harassed -- be it at a party, in the hallway, or even in our own rooms.

Campus Housing: We have guaranteed housing for the first two years of college, and the school is still building more housing such that, eventually, EVERY student will be guaranteed living quarters on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Our greek life is as stereotypical as one would see on tv. There is hazing, crazy parties, and cliques. While the panhellenic ("main") sororities tend to be extremely elitist, and reserved for the rich and white, the others are extremely welcoming. It all depends on where you look and who you are as a person.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: An extremely competitive environment, this school is full of students dedicated to hard work and studying. While all of the professors are highly accomplished and talented in their fields, it is clear that many of them couldn't care less about teaching. While you may meet nice students that share your interests, goals, and aspirations, it is highly likely you will meet other students that may discriminate or act rudely towards you. These cons aside, there are many opportunities available for a student at UCLA.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles and on the list of America's top colleges, UCLA is a school for those who want to have a blast while focusing on schoolwork. Although course registration is a battle, classes are crowded, and the registrar is impersonal, students praise the wisdom of their professors and feel that a UCLA degree will open major doors in the job market. The quarter system moves fast and tests tend to sneak up stealthily, but this allows for more experimentation when choosing courses and far less boredom. With more than 100 majors to choose from, the campus is bustling with students of all ideologies, races, and academic interests, making rousing discussions an everyday experience.

One of the nation's few top-notch universities that isn't private, UCLA is a place for those who want to learn more than a textbook contains. There’s pressure to shine socially and academically among the approximately 25,000 high-achieving Bruin undergrads, but there are plenty of campus organizations that give students a go-to friend group in the midst of the giant student body. However, it's up to the students to scout out and take advantage of all opportunities because nothing is handed to UCLA students—they must learn to navigate around red tape, persist through budget cuts, find parking and housing in Westwood's winding streets, and steer toward success. And how do they celebrate their successes? Parties! Whether through the semi-dominant Greek system or at a laid-back dorm gathering, UCLA students know how to put the books aside for a night. Overall, Bruins play nearly as hard as they work, making UCLA one of the most well-rounded schools imaginable.
