Transportation: School shuttle can get crowded at peak times in the morning and around 5pm. Would be nice if there were more shuttles at these times to accommodate the higher number of students

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing selections are not limited, but they often are filled quickly. There should be a bit more options for those who can't afford it also.

Weather: Sunny southern California is the best weather you can receive.

Technology: Everything is perfect, besides the limited free printing. The amount of free printing offered use to be renewed every quarter. Now it is only renewed every year. Where does all the money I pay towards these resources go!?

Greek Life: Greek life contributes a lot to this campus. For example, many projects and activities that go on around campus that are run by the school are managed by Greek students as volunteer work. Many greek students on campus are viewed just as any other non greek students. There is no particular difference between them other than the social group they are associated with and the actives they partake in.

Campus Housing: So far, I have had issues with on campus housing, but I believe it was just due to bad luck and terrible roommates. I do not blame the system at all.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There should be a free public transportation system. For example, at Berkeley and many other Universities in California, students are able to utilize public, city buses for free. Why should it not be free for UCLA students as well? We pay the same tuition.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The Diversity is ok but I would like to see more Latino students! Especially because they are a huge portion of our population in our country.

Local Area: LA has tons to do, good food (not as great as the bay area, great weather, lots of museums and shopping. The only bad thing is that LA traffic combined with sub-par public transport can make getting around pretty tricky.

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.
