Why do you love UCI?

UCI was my dream school and I was so excited to attend! I fell in love with the nature and environment the school provides. I have met great professors and students through my classes and organizations. The campus offers a lot of opportunities for majors or interests, it has helped me slowly figure out what I want to do in the future. UCI has become a second home to me and I am glad it has been part of a journey in my education and as a person.
