University of California, Redemption. In an era where public education in the State of California is taking hits in K-12, CCs, the CSUs, and the UC system, many of the State's public universities have been forced to cut their enrollments through more intense admissions standards. Hence, these schools accept less freshman and transfer students. However, with schools like UC Riverside, UC Santa Cruz and even UC Merced (where previous reputation has been less than stellar among college admissions-hype beasts and GPA/SAT/ACT-obsessed high school seniors too caught up with the TOP 50 of the USNWR), the rise in demand, popularity, as well as increased competition of quality applicants, has helped ALL the UCs get on the fast-track towards increased prestige and improved rep with more selective applicant pools, and, in the long-term, more prepared and exceptionally qualified freshman and transfer students. UCR is definitely on this track and is truly rising. Therefore, UCR should be considered less as "UC Rejects" and more, the University of California, REDEMPTION.
Fuck yeah, it ain't nothing to be ashamed of getting into and going to UC Riverside! Consider yourself REDEEMED! UCR = UC REDEMPTION. Go out there and get your education! Fuck the haters, UCR is a UC school for a reason!
a pretty nice place, friendly people, nice atmosphere. good academics
east lothian, diverse student body, bourne engineering building
A rising UC with growing engineering and bio programs. recently has been ranked among the top 25 universities to attend in the nation. Is currently in the process of building their own medical school.
This UC also boasts the #1 entomology program in the nation. not bad for being called the former bottom feeder uc. UC Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara and Irvine have recently dropped status according to Newsweek
I go to ucr which used to be bad, but now we're better than uci so life is good.
A school located in Riverside, California. Apart of the UC system and has amazing professors, facilities, and programs. Catches a bad rep for having low admissions standards in the past. Known for it's commitment to underserved, disadvantaged communities and having a diverse student population. A school improving in reputation in all facets of education. Shit on by insecure people.
The Washington Monthly ranked UCR 16th in the United States in terms of social mobility, research and community service, while US News and World Report ranked UCR's undergraduate program 94th in the nation (out of 368 colleges) based on peer assessment, student selectivity, financial resources, and other factors. U.S. News ranks UCR as the third most ethnically diverse and, by the number of undergraduates receiving Pell Grants (42 percent), the 15th most economically diverse student body in the nation. UCR's extensive outreach and retention programs have contributed to its reputation as a "campus of choice" for minority students, including LGBT students. In 2005, UCR became the first public university campus in the nation to offer a gender-neutral housing option.
UCR - Also known as University of Rejects or University of Riverside.
A UC that everyone goes to because they didn't make it into any other UCs. Usually a backup school for people who want flaunt that they are in a UC. UCR has the lowest expectations out of all the University. Pretty pathetic how it can even be called a UC.
Guy: You're going to a CSU? Hah I'm going to a UCR sucker!
Girl: You mean University of Rejects?
The bottom feeder UC; it is often forced to take the Cal
rejects. It is basically Community College v2.0. No one is turned away it has no prestige. I've seen high schools with better campuses than UCR's. Even Kyle Bennett
, who has the IQ of a retarded cockroach on fetal alcohol syndrome, can get in.
Even though it is only one of 2 UCs that has a business administration major (the other one being Cal), Cal Poly Pomona
and Harvey Mudd still kick UCR's ass.
Hell, even the bottom feeder CSUs (San Bernardino, etc.) can kick its ass.
It shouldn't even be in the UC system, not even CSU - it's best off as a tech school or community college.
Its graduates usually end up still trying to decide what to do with their lives after getting their degree.
Aww shit, my 2.0 GPA and SAT score of 400 got me rejected from Cal, UCLA and UCSD...... but hey, what's this? An acceptance letter from UCR????? SWEET!!! Hey wait a sec, I didn't even apply in the first place, WTF???? Screw this bullshit, I'm going to RCC instead.
University of California, Riverside. Called "UC-Rejected" by students who think that the other UC's are superior.
Man, I can't believe I didn't even get into UCR.
