4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my time so far.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UCLA is one of the most recognized schools in the country and the world. This adds a lot of great value to your degree because it is easy to be recognized for the school's excellence.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I personally have not had any safety issues. There is always police on campus, and there is a service that students can call if we do not feel comfortable walking alone on campus. Crime rates are fairly low in comparison to other schools.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing is fairly decent. The classic residence halls are simple, and they are great for freshman students. It is a great way to get to know others. However, it does not make sense that there is no air conditioning in the rooms when the school is located in Southern California. Air conditioning is extremely necessary. Other than that campus housing pretty good.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports help unite the school. The school spirit allows everyone to enjoy attending the sporting events, even if you are not very into sports. It's always very intriguing to see how committed everyone is to representing and showing their school spirit. The home games are always a reason for excitement, especially when they are against the school rival.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors I've had so far have been great and have helped with the high school to college transition. Everyone on campus is very friendly. I am definitely very glad I chose to attend this school.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life seems to be highly effective. There are always students from fraternities and sororities trying to recruit students to join and make them feel as they were part of their family.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone attending UCLA has the opportunity to engage in any sport activity they desire. The support provided by coaches and teams is amazing just as the support of the fans is extraordinary.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UCLA is a very competitive University. The environment really makes you feel at home with no one judging you by the type of person you are. If I were to have the opportunity to choose a college all over again I would still choose UCLA as I feel that the competition among students will help me become a better student.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love professors in the sociology department. A lot of them are very passionate about the disciplines they are involved in and they generally make classes interesting if not exciting experiences. Courses are sometimes hard to pick if you are a freshman, but then you can always pick some GE classes and inform yourselves of broad topics.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus is located in Westwood, which is the safe part of LA. There are regular police patrolling though they make it very low-profile. Sexual assault happens on campus though not very often, and when it does, it is treated very seriously.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is pretty decent and it's conveniently located around dining areas and postal areas. It's sometimes chore to go back and forth from classroom to the dorm, but the experience of living in a dorm is positive. There are different levels of housing accommodations, some are better than others but are at the same time more expensive

3 College Junior

Greek Life: UCLA has an okay greek culture, but the public opinions towards greek life hasn't been great! The composition of Greek life is somewhat mixed, and they have very different cultural mindsets

4 College Junior

Athletics: UCLA has one of the best college athletic facilities in the country. The facilities are up-to-date and athletes are really competitive on the nation al level. Bruins are proud of their athletes and sports are important part of campus culture

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: School offers a lot of extracurricular opportunities and encourage students to develop their interests and passion. Course works are rigorous and challenging but I can always to go to office hours for help. Professors generally encourage active participation and they care about the topics they teach.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit is a major aspect of the college and it revolves around sports

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Though I don't feel as if I particularly belong here, everyone else seems to.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is the best option for me as I want to pursue a career in research. The college is known for its numerous projects and everything they have done to help further studies in different fields through their research.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Besides the fact that my dorm (which is the most affordable type) had no air conditioning, which made the hot weather there pretty unbearable, I like my first year experience living on campus. The dining hall food is superb and readily available. Living in a residential hall afforded me the opportunity to meet and get to know many wonderful people and friends. It'd also a much more friendly and open environment compared the the other housing options, making my freshmen year easier to get settled in.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't explored many internships or job prospects yet.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from this school is why I'm attending 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.
