Reasons to attend and to not attend University of California, Riverside

To Attend

  • “The people are very, very kind and that can be a really great reason to go here because the support system is really good.”
  • “The professors here are always willing to help, you just have to reach out.”
  • “There are a lot of opportunities on campus, especially if you want to work in a lab or do research. If you’re willing to put yourself out there, you can easily find a position for yourself.”
  • “If you get involved on campus, it’s a lot of fun. There are a lot of different organizations you can join and it’s super easy to get involved in them.”
  • “The big, diverse student body is a big plus because you’re not restricted to interacting with only one type of student. You can interact with multiple types of people.”
  • “The programs here are very beneficial to students. They’re here to help students graduate. I really feel that everyone’s here to help you.”

To Not Attend

  • “Parking is difficult.” [See The Highlander article, “ASUCR and TAPS meet to discuss solutions to ongoing parking problems.”]
  • “Riverside is very isolated from a lot of places.”
  • “It’s very, very hot and a big thing to consider is the weather.”
