Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are very diversified due to the student body being very ethnically diversified. Dress can range from very stylish to girls wearing short shorts with high heels. Guys are in Bruin wear, or jeans or even dressed a bit preppy. I do feel that the guys dress better than the girls.
You can definitely tell who the athletes are.

Overall Experience: I love the beauty of the UCLA campus. I have made many friends in my classes. I also attended summer school and would recommend that for anyone who wants to get a head. Only if you are dedicated and hardworking. It is not for procrastinators. The people make UCLA unique. from the students, to the professors, counselors and all the hardworking facility people.

Health & Safety: The Arthur Ashe Health Center is in the middle of campus. You have to walk by it to get to classes and on the way back you pass it to get to the dorms and or parking lots. The campus police will walk you from your class at night to your dorm or car if you call and request it. All the parking structures are very well lit.

Academics: Most classes have on average 40 students in them. Except for the large lecture and those have 80-120. But will also have a discussion aspect as well. Registration has two passes, on the first students can only register for 10 units (2 classes) and on the second pass you can register for
(9 units). There are many places where students can study.

Academics: I'm an English Major and am pleased with my professors and the courses offered. I'm also in College Honors and there are plenty courses that are offered to reach my goals. My professors are all fairly young and exude passion for their particular field. The English counselor sends at least 6-10 emails every day with events and scholarship opportunities.

Parking: Parking at UCLA is expensive. The parking lots are all a good walking distance from the classes. There is ample parking if you allow an hour before your class to find a space. If you come at the last minute you may have to drive around for a while.

Scholarships: While things are constantly available (loans and such), the way things are run make it hard for those to get what they need. A friend of mine just barley out of homelessness couldn't get anything in financial aid. I had one scholarship, but that ran dry and the financial aid office seem constantly busy. It generally hard to get money from the establishment unless you have an outstanding concern, even then, like my friend, it is difficult.

Guys & Girls: THere are many flavors of people here and that's wonderful. People will say it is an Asian dominated campus, but if you look around there's so much more to it; International students who can hardly speak english, people who stayed in one place their whole lives, people who've been around the world, and world changers.

Greek Life: You hear very little about Greek Life unless you are in it or know someone that is. They hold few events and participate in handing out flyers and the occasional fundraisers, but they are mostly secluded to their respective houses. Parties are open to others as are their events, but unless there is an accident, it isn't all to noticeable.

Academics: It is difficult being my major at my school in accordance to flexibility of classes! There is not a huge variance in classes one has the opportunity to choose from. All the professors in my program are highly regarded people in the industry I am looking to go into. The experience of one-on-one time with the professors is priceless and I am super blessed to have the chance to work with these individuals.

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.
