The University of Irvine is a green, beautiful city! Nature is everywhere, and friendly people too. The neighborhood is so perfect it is almost unrealistic as in living in a bubble, secluded from real world issues. Although the campus lacks diversity its population is growing slowly.

It's a nice school that's located in a safe area. The teaching is very good and is largely focused on sciences. The attached medical school is also a bonus when looking at it for the long term if you're interested in going into medicine. The community is nice and everyone is friendly I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a 4 year university.
The school is amazing .The campus is huge. It space as a huge circle with a park in the middle. There lots of majors to chose from . It the one the top university in the United States. Go ANTEATER!!!!
