Why do you love UCI?

I love UCI because it has become my home away from home. The thought of going to college was extremely exciting yet nerve racking but the moment I stepped onto the campus and walked through Aldrich Park, I knew it was going to be a perfect fit. The comfort of UCI and the supportive community of students and faculty has given me the ability to grow and thrive during my time here while still challenging me to grow and be the best student and individual possible. UCI has also allowed me to explore all of my academic interests by allowing me to pursue a double major and share my creative side by introducing me to other students who are also musicians and artists.
