3 College Freshman

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.

Off-Campus Housing: I am living off campus for the first time ever this year and so far I have been loving it.

It's just that rent is a bit high compared to other places, since it is westwood.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It is expensive but it is still a public school, so it is affordable. And many get lot of financial aid.

Campus Housing: I love the dorms but it does depend on where you are placed. You might get somewhere that it is clean but not social.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I love all the athletes around UCLA. Obviously, football and basketball are the most popular but I feel like it is not attended as much it deserves to be, even other sports like gymnastics or tennis and more.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I know lot of Frat Parties and they are pretty good. And some club organization go to clubs together to fundraise as well. Those are nice because it's nice downtown LA club parties.

5 College Junior

Local Area: It's Los Angeles, full of opportunities and attractions. But the traffic is very bad as well as parking around Westwood.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I love Ashe Center at UCLA and I do really feel safe at campus dorms.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Just make sure to fill out your FAFSA! Through the FAFSA application you will automatically be considered for some of their scholarships

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.
