Review University of California - Riverside
I have been here for a while and I love this school, best choice. The whole campus is really friendly and supportive. The professors overall are good and care for the students, especially if you put in the effort to seek them for help. The dorms here are good and the cleaning staff are nice and friendly. The food and chef's are great too! Never really get bored of the food here since you got three choices here. Some of the things I would like to see change around here is the events that they have, they are too repetitive in my opinion but other than that all is good. Overall, the school is very good but a little underrated. I would recommend this school if you like a friendly and diversity in your school.
UCR is definitely a good campus, although there is plenty of room for improvement. Although the classes, professors, clubs, and opportunities are great during the regular course, the summer classes there are a joke! Taking classes in 5 weeks is already difficult enough (to actually learn and retain information and not just get 'A's), but they choose professors that seem to not care or who fail to put in the effort to make their teaching effective.
I love my school! UC Riverside is a school that everyone seems to put on the back burner and many people do not know that it actually fosters a wonderful environment for students of all different diversities. Our school is especially known to be the top UC in terms of diversity and I believe that this environment makes UCR a unique and enjoyable experience for everyone attending the school. There are flaws in the UC system, just as there are in many other school systems, but needless to say, UCR is actively working to make our university even better than it is now. And although many students come to this school out of necessity (and not because it was necessarily their first/top choice school), this university leaves a lasting impression on anyone who attends and that is why, despite some people's doubts, would choose my school over and over again if given the choice.
