5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Though the class sizes are large, the courses offered at UCLA are very interesting and the professors love teaching what they know.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities for jobs for students and contain a variety of selections that anyone can find something that appeals to them. Recruitment is in extremely high quality because recruiters are always looking for new people to join them.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is very intense. You must swipe your bruin card to enter your building, to push the elevator button, and to get into your room. There is also security on campus at all times.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I received convenient location for my housing and it has a social, yet relaxing atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about it, but greek life seems to only bring a positive atmosphere to the campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: UCLA is the only school to have 113 NCAA Championships. The \best!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UCLA has always been my dream school. It has the best people and the best teachers and most importantly, the best food.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm currently taking summer school so I've only experienced two classes here. My LS 2 professor is amazing and I would love to take his class again. His class was a "flipped classroom" which helped me understand the material a lot more than any tradition way of teaching. For my LS 3 class, it's a lot of new material especially for summer but I would suggest staying after class on discussion days to ask questions.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on campus but I still never go out late at night unless I'm with a large group. For police safety, the response time is within a few minutes so I do feel safe knowing that.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For session A, it was easy to meet new people within the first week however for session C it took about two weeks to meet new people. It only social if you talk to the right kind of people so it's important to start introducing yourself during the first week.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, the greatest experience at this university is juggling between my 9am class and my social life which was something I couldn't seem to manage at my community college. My college is comprised of intelligent students who know how to have fun but buckle down when needed. It is because of the people I've met here that I would continue to choose and support my college.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Even during the summer, Greek life is still present. I think most people here are busy with school work and Greek life is just not that important to some.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics at UCLA is taken very seriously. Everywhere you go there is something about the athletics department. It is pretty cool because that means that there is a lot of school spirit.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience at this school has been good this far because I have been blessed with many opprotunities. I have learned a lot about myself here as well.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm a CS student, so I have a ton of opportunities, I got an internship, and a job offer after I graduate.

However, I have a lot of friends in other fields who are struggling to find anything.

Overall Experience: Overall I've had a good college experience.

I feel that it would be great if it was a little less crowded, but with a public school thats difficult to manage.

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.
