Recent Reviews dien Featured review What is your overall opinion of this school? It's up to the student to make their experience memorable. One may stay within their racial realm or branch out, either way there is a place to fit in. Asians, Hispanics, Africans.. It's a fantastic way to preserve one's culture. LGBT is definitely huge.. They also pass out free condoms if you need some at their office. Don't forget to check out a Vagina Monologue. People are really relaxed in their dress code at UCR..
Just t shirt, shorts, flip flops.. Somewhat a small, friendly debate, in white and yellow polo shirts.. Although they try so tough to be separated from one another.. Politics: It seems as though more people at UCR are liberal than conservative..
It is one of the most ethnically diverse universities in the nation. The fact of the matter is there is no average student at UCR. There is such a large diversity amongst the students that nearly everybody is welcome, and a person would be hard pressed not to find a student who shares similar views or tastes. There are campus resource centers for every student who is looking to connect with other students. Because UCR is located in a desert, it is usually hot for the vast majority of the year.
This means most students show up in either shorts and a shirt for guys or dresses and skirts for girls. When it does get cold in winter, jeans and sweatshirts become commonplace for the majority of students; however, it seems like sandals or ugg boots are worn year round regardless of how hot or cold the weather gets. Being in California it is no surprise that the majority of students are predominately left on the political spectrum.
While there is a Young Republicans of America organization on campus that enjoys lots of participation, most students tend to be more liberal. There are many students who are politically active and every Wednesday on campus there are students protesting. Usually these protests either revolve around the "Occupy" Movement or the school administration and the tuition hikes prevalent across California colleges.
Johnathan Class: 0 If you are the type of person that just wants to party until school's out, you will feel out of place. We have a population of Christians, Muslims, atheists, and agnostics. There are no religious tensions that I am aware of.
It isn't uncommon to see people wear headscarfs and turbans. We have a Mosque and Christian church almost right next to each other near the school. Everyone has a "to each their own" attitude. The LGBT center is especially strong. I can say this from experience, because I am a transgender student.
I have never once felt unwelcome at the campus. However, be careful about being publicly LGBT outside of campus. The area around there is rough. Most students are from the nearby area of Riverside county. They tend to be politically apathetic and politically aware. They are more likely to vote democrat than republican. A large portion of our students come from poverty and are first generation college students.

Although this school, focuses largely on academic success of the students, UCR fails to address problems that would benefit the students learning environment.
The school has inefficient parking for the amount of students that commute to campus, yet they refuse to put money towards parking structures and instead continue to build more residence halls and classrooms. Adding more students to the school is only further going to decrease the already limited parking spots on campus, causing students to miss classes and overall dread driving to school as the parking situation is a nightmare.

Matter of fact, the Korean Christian Club was trying to encourage me to join their club. I'd see a table with a group of students who live in the same hall eating together. Students here generally don't care about how much they earn one day. Find out.
Many students embrace themselves at this school, and are free to express themselves in the way they dress, act, or things they do and become a part of. It's up to the student to make their experience memorable. Most students are from the nearby area of Riverside county. The students at UCR are generally accepting, of anyone, no matter what race or economic position you may be in. Let's picture this- there are four tables of students in the dining hall.
