University of California - Los Angeles Reviews
At this university, there are several ways to pursue your passion. The majors and minors offered are extremely diverse, and it is great that you can follow both your academic interests through your major, and your creative, artistic interests through clubs, and the like. For someone like me who is interested in student life and the availability of diverse extracurriculars, this college has it all! Various musical performance groups to be a part of, and also various ways to be involved in sports and clubs without it feeling like it is overwhelming! The teachers, students, and overall community of UCLA are passionate in succeeding and learning.
I've only spent two years at UCLA, so my review only encapsulates so much of the overall experience most other students who spent four years at the school would have. My experience was great in regards to academic opportunities and campus vibes. If there was anything off-putting at all about my experience, it's that the UCLA student body is much more clique-y than I had anticipated or hoped it would be. UCLA is lauded for its diverse student body, yet ironically the students seem to segregate themselves by race, major, socio-economic standing, frat/sorority affiliation, you name it. It's great to see faces of so many colors at the school, but it's discouraging to see them gathered in huge blobs rather than mixed. Needless to say, I enjoyed my time at UCLA enough to apply there for graduate school. Extremely happy to say that I will be going back for another two years!
While choosing to attend UCLA has been my best decision in life, like all decisions, it comes with its ups and downs. You will meet the greatest peers here, encounter several different exciting opportunities, and listen to some of the greatest professors lecture passionately about interesting content. However, the academics here is not to take lightly. You have to work hard in order to succeed! You will feel stressed and overwhelmed at the difficulty of the courses here, but unless you really take the time and make the effort to seek supporting services, you will stress constantly.
