4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Many great parties happen at the frat houses or at apartments with great company. I love parties with great DJs who play music that makes you want to dance forever. Many students at my school party to have a great time and not to necessarily "hook-up" with others or get "wasted".

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Many people are in need of financial aid and it is stressful to think of how my education will be paid for. Like mostly everyone, apply for FAFSA and as many scholarships as possible. No one wants to be in debt when coming out of college.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: We are ranked number two for a reason when it comes to our dorm food. The dining halls remind me of Las Vegas buffets, the menus include such variety, the quality of the food is delicious, and the ambience is great as well. The only downside would be the schedule of hours when places are open.

Campus Housing: Dorm life is amazing. I love the social atmosphere. The food is delicious. It is like eating at a fancy restaurant everyday. The rooms have air conditioning which is great for the hot weather. The bathrooms are clean and get cleaned weekly.

Campus Housing: Its very expensive but I met a lot of friends.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: UCLA keeps spending money on new buildings but doesn't put any money in renovating many of the older buildings. Many of your classrooms will be almost falling apart. As a student you will almost think UCLA is going bankrupt with the number of impacted majors and classes. Quarter system is extremely unforgiving. If you ever fall behind in a class don't ever expect to catch up. School pride is nonexistent except for a few days of the year. You will love how beautiful the campus is but hate walking up all the hills. UCLA is a great school for people aspiring to go to graduate school. There are better schools in LA for people who want to work after getting a bachelors degree.

Off-Campus Housing: It is expensive and parking is always a pain. You will either have a short walk to In N Out or a short walk to campus, but not both.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many great places to eat for lunch or dinner. There are only a handful of places that stay open after 11pm though. Many students don't bother going since you have to pay for parking and its too far of a walk.

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments in Westwood are severely overpriced - they cost way more than most college apartments and the quality is not that great. Many of the apartments you pay for the location, but the interior is nothing impressive. Still, most students move off-campus by their third year because the freedom and apartment experience is worth it.

Off-Campus Dining: Great options in Westwood, never a problem if you're looking to eat off-campus. A little pricey to eat off-campus all the time but otherwise it's great. We have plenty of chain food as well as locally-owned, smaller business that are well-loved and popular in Westwood.

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.
