This is an extremely diverse college that offers a variety of standard programs as well as an excellent 7-year medical program. I would recommend this college and would still choose to go. There are lots of opportunities for work on campus and different groups that you can join outside of the typical frat and sorority houses. The only cons are the air is very polluted and the areas outside of the campus can be high in crime. UC Riverside is a school that I would highly recommend to serious students who are interested in completing their undergraduate degree.
