Degree: Public Health Education and Promotion
Graduation Year: 2011

UCI is a great school-simply that. However, it is a difficult, but not impossible school to navigate through. It is critical to utilize every resource at your disposal. If unsure, just ask and you will be directed to where you need to be and you will make the most of your education there. Do not be afraid to ask for help, but also know that you are in charge since you are paying them. Aside from these little reminders, remember to make the most of your experience. The professors there are knowledgeable and willing to help- a majority of them, but that requires that you interact with them first.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013

My experience at the University of California, Irvine was wonderful overall. The campus is beautiful and has a diverse student population. The courses offered within my major and school were many and covered a plethora of topics and subject matter. You could be as broad or as specific as you want with the classes you took. I took courses on both the theoretical and the practical side of my field. For example I had courses on political theory based on the discourse of philosophers from the 18th and 19th centuries as well as courses comparing the modern politics of governments in North American and Asia. These two sides of learning provided me a more balanced education. An additional plus, the faculty were always available to meet with you if you needed the extra help or if you just wanted to discuss a certain topic more.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

UCI is an amazing school, just as all the internet articles and surveys mention. The campus is small enough to become well connected with students and professors, but still big enough for you to run out of breath on the way to class. There are plenty of research opportunities and internships to become involved with during the four years of undergraduate studies. The people and the environment make UCI a very welcoming environment for all ages and ethnicities.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

The University of California, Irvine is great school to attend if you are interested in a career in STEM and/or government. The school offers many opportunities for students to do research, as well as present their findings at conferences, research symposiums and during class among your peers. The school is in a safe location, that is constantly rated among the top 10 safest places to attend school and goes above and beyond to make sure students feel supported both academically and professionally. Students interested in government have a range of extra curricular options including mock trial, pre-law societies, study abroad legal programs, UCI Law Forum, Global Connect, running for office through UCI student government, plus more more opportunities!

UCI was a great school that continues to thrive in academics each year. The campus is beautiful, which was a major deal breaker when deciding where to attend college.

Degree: Biological and Physical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I thought college was a great opportunity to explore what I had a passion for and solidify what I wanted out of a career. I got to take classes on things I was interested in as opposed to things I was forced into learning and it was a really enlightening experience to explore who I am as a person in society.

Good school, small program, allows for good interaction with the professors however there are also fewer opportunities for research and there are definite biases towards certain concentrations than others
