"The undergraduate psychology program at the University of California, Riverside is a rigorous undertaking because the school wants to ensure each student leaves well rounded, and you will. During my four years I learned how to research and write proper scientific papers, and studied broad topics like child and overall human development, but also very intricate and detailed areas of concentration like neurotransmitters and brain functions. The psychology department is lucky to have such a wide variety of professors from different fields of expertise who genuinely care about the success of their students. I never met a professor or TA who wasn't willing to go the extra mile to help me, and I was presented with many research opportunities that I feel I may not have received at other institutions. Overall, my biggest issue with UCR was that it was so far and different from the life I was used to, but over time the education, experiences, and friendships I cultivated in my time there truly made up for any deficits. I would give this school a 9/10 and highly recommend it to anyone looking to further their education."

"I got my degree in Psychology and I absolutely loved it. The professors were helpful and engaging. The academic advisors were very accommodating and gave great information. The campus itself is very beautiful and had great places to study. The only thing I would of preferred was smaller classes, especially since you could be in a class with 500 students."

"I believe that undergraduate level schooling is the beginning of figuring out where one wants to take their career and at the same time explore their interests. It is a time to take different classes and find what your true passions are. From academic counseling on changing your major, to joining student organizations, the undergraduate experience is well-rounded and opens up more people to the world. My undergraduate experience at UCR was a great one. I was able to take a variety of different classes before I decided on my Psychology major. I have always been interested in how we think as human beings, and how certain life events or our environment affect the decisions we make. I also was very active in Filipino-American student organizations, which molded me into the community organizer I am today. Our organizations also put on annual cultural shows, where we could tell our stories as first generation Filipino-Americans, in a creative way. My acting and dancing experience during those shows directly contribute to my ability think on my feet, and solve problems in creative ways. My college experience, directly contributed to where I am today."

"UCR is a great school. It is a bit overcrowded so be prepared to fight for the classes you need, as well as parking. But overall it is a good school, the professors are extremely knowledgeable and so are the TAs. This is a big research school, so if you are looking into doing research this is a good place to go!"

"UCR is a nice school, but it is a bit over crowded. Parking is hard to find and getting into classes you need is a serious race. But other than that problem, the campus is nice, and I've like all the professors I had. It's a big research school so if you want to do research this is a good school for you."
