College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not researched off campus housing yet.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places to eat at in Westwood. From sushi to pizza to donuts, there are a lot of places to choose from.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Frat parties aren' t too hot, but more intimate parties, more private, can be fun.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships helped a good amount in paying for the cost of attending here.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is pretty great here, considering it is dining hall food. There are a lot of options and it's all pretty accessible.

College Freshman

Party Scene: Never been to a party on campus.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's pretty simple since it is part of the UC application when you first apply. As for after your first year, I'll let you know in a year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's pretty nice wherever you stay. It's clean and can be made to feel like home.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining halls are varied so the option is there, but usually I find myself eating from one place for weeks. Buffet style is cool. I don't like how you can't get healthy food at late-night. Also, you can only use your meal swipes when you are on the Hill. But the food itself is good.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had any trouble with this.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorming in a plaza type room is pretty good. I get a shared private bathroom, social interactions by way of the floor, and it is on campus. It did take some time adjusting to sharing the room among three people, though you figure it out after a bit.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: variety, but mostly fast food

4 College Junior

Administration: Not much trouble, be smart.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Great, if you know which nights to look.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Lots of improvements to healthy options, veg(an)

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is absolutely essential for social

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football and basketball games are a huge part of UCLA life, but the more lowkey events like volleyball and gymnastics are way underrated and super fun. The gym is really nice and convenient

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: GREAT food of all kinds of varieties but incredibly expensive. A lot of chain places for cheaper (in n out, chipotle, taco bell, subway) but also more unique places like Ike's (student discount) native foods, Yamato, and TLT

Administration: I have never had a problem with the administration either way; too strict or too lenient

Scholarships: Part of this is because it is a public university, but I have received no aid from the school despite applying many times. It's very difficult to get financial help.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: As long as you're safe and smart, the party scene is great. There is always something happening somewhere, and on Thursdays you can walk into any frat and there will be people partying. Because it's such a greek oriented party scene, you can meet new people really easily and get however involved you want.

Campus Food: Our food is ranked second in the country. We have tons of options and conveniently located halls. You can customize your food however you want, it is almost all buffet style, and how healthy you want to eat is entirely up to you. Bplate is great for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options, and De Neve brunch will save your life every weekend.

Campus Housing: Social atmosphere varies HEAVILY depending on the building (halls much more social than plazas), overall very clean and nice facilities, at most a 20 minute walk to class. Super close to dining halls and easy to get from one housing building to another

Campus Housing: Everyday, I encounter individuals from all walks of life. I feel that they share an immense invitation to their culture. It is a great experience to not only be at a comfortable environment but also to learn from the people who live in this environment.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
