Contrary to the belief that UC Merced isn't a top school, my experience at the university has proven that UC Merced is a good school for many reasons. I have had many great professors and have learned a lot from each and every one of them. I have met a lot of cool people, many of whom I know will be friends for life. We have a great deal of clubs that you could get involved in and get experience from. And the best part of it all - everything is set to grow! Yes, we are a small campus, but with the recent influx of prospective students and expansion endeavors such as the 2020 Project, everything is set to double, if not triple, within the coming years. I would highly recommend UC merced to any prospective students entering college.
