What if you could find out what UCI is actually like? We asked students to help us give you a real view of what it's like here. These are the experiences of current UCI undergrads that you’ll want to check out. Get the low-down on campus life, papers and exams, and personal challenges and successes.
One of my first involvements on campus was the Frisbee team. I made a lot of friends, including some upperclassmen who helped guide me through my freshman year.
When I applied, I didn’t even know where Irvine was. But when I came down to visit, I realized UCI was the place for me. I knew right away it was an environment I would thrive in.
At first I was scared about not finding people who were similar to me and that I wouldn’t fit in. But everyone here is so open and welcoming that it was easy to meet and make friends.
