My experience at UCLA has been an exciting one. As this is my first year, UCLA provides new students with plenty of opportunities to connect with the massive world of vibrant life here through inclusive orientations, outreaching club fairs, and plenty of freedom within each student's own right. The campus is very beautiful, and although one of the smallest UC campuses, it is very compact in the challenging and wide academics it offers alongside it's boundless resources.

The social aspect and the love on this campus seen everyday is beautiful, however the diversity is a work in progress. What is uplifting, however, is the amazing voice our minorities have on campus and how they advocate for one another.
