Party Scene: Parties do exist here, but the vast majority of students focus on academics and internship possibilities.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There isn't much talk of preventative measures for sexual assault, but there are a lot of resources to help people after they go through sexual assault.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The various campus groups are given a lot of freedom to use the campus for social events, and most classes do not take attendance so there is a certain level of time flexibility.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are great for first years who want to want to be a part of the campus culture, but the space is limited and the lottery is almost completely luck based.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartment complexes to choose from, but the availability is hit and miss.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Not the most amazing city in the world but there isn't much to complain about since it could be a lot worse. There are enough stores and shops to accommodate for most people's needs.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A majority of students have shown supports for varsity sports and they often attend sports games.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I think it's pretty convenient to go to off campus restaurants at westwood. These restaurants offer a great variety of food. But the price of food is quite expensive.

Guys & Girls: Lots of students go party on Thursday night and they often go out during weekends. I think this is typical college life and can be found in most colleges.

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.
