.I loved that I could take Anthropology and Sociology to meet certain graduation requirements. Academic advising can be hit and miss in the biology department. We are the number 13th research university and if you look into some departments we are in the top 5 if not number 1! It all depends on the major you are in and the courses you take. It can be very overwhelming at times if you dont break it all up.
The smaller classes are only upper division, which usually requires fulfillment of at least 3 lower divs
This morning I went and saw a speaker and with grad students actively critiqued a high profile court case in a way that no one has every critiqued it using well proven cognitive psychological argues. A lot of people study of campus, Gateway commons, Langston Library, even outside. I feel that the people I surrounded myself with did study a lot, but just as in any other schools there are people who just mess around and are just there for the social part of college. If you don't have priority at registration, it can be hard to get the classes you want, but there are waiting lists.
Students frequently complain about the lack of support from professors. How about a verdant park in the heart of campus to take naps in between classes? It was awesome and something to boast about to my high school friends at other universities. The administration always has their student's best interest at hearts.
Whether it be about politics or evolutionary biology. As I began to take classes smaller and more specific in nature my love for going to class began. If you have a purpose and a goal, you are able to learn for fun, but also take classes that will help you get a job in the future. The administration makes it extremely hard to get anything accomplished.
UCI does not just teach you, it trains you.
The social life is not at all what everyone else says We are the Guinness World Record holders for the largest dodgeball game after reclaiming the title two times. This is a frightening number. I am now a mathematics major and I want to go for a psychology minor.
The school may not excel at having a prominent social scene but its very easy to find many groups with varied interests and create your own netwo If you don't have priority at registration, it can be hard to get the classes you want, but there are waiting lists.
The academic advisors are nice but they don't know you--there are six per department and they serve thousands of students. He makes it fun to attend lecture. In terms of studying many students are concerned about doing well. UCI has also been recognized by the U. Over the course of year and through various classes I found my niche and passion which was anthropology.
This was in when he was still in office, by the way. If you want to be really involved and social you will find your niche, some people just like to complain about Irvine because it's not a non-stop Barack Obama! Natalie Class: Sophomore There are usually a large amount of students in the libraries either studying or doing classwork. The highlight of my college experience was graduation, because guess who was our guest speaker? I would recommend the school to anyone.
