Student Life Organization !

Putting the "Life" Back Into Being a Student

"Student Life organizes and puts on a lot of cool events during the school year, including Homecoming, Block Party and Welcome Week. Our goal is to introduce our student body to as many diverse ideas and beliefs as possible through music, food, entertainment and activities that increase social awareness, both community and global. We also offer students the chance to get involved "behind the scenes" allowing them to gain valuable job experience by helping out with event programming and promotion."

Housing at UCR ! A home away from home.

"Our three housing options – Residence Halls, UCR Campus Apartments and Family Housing – provide you with a convenient, student-centered environment to complement university education.

With zero commute, friends next door and plenty of recreational activities happening down the hall or in the next building over, you are in the center of the action.

When it’s time to buckle down and study for a big exam, you'll find computer labs, study buddies and plenty of academic resources.

Plus, UCR Police and on-duty Residence Life staff provide 24-hour assistance and are committed to delivering a safe and secure environment.

When the campus is at your doorstep, the only thing you need to do is step outside."

Why this is the school for me.

This is the perfect school for me because it is away from home which is what I've always wanted to do, get away from a small town into the big city. This school offers many opportunities to study abroad and it has an amazing Marketing program and major. This school also offers internships at top companies which guarantee a job after. This university is located in such a beautiful location and it has many places to relax. The dorms have swimming pools and the backdrop of a mountain is breathing taking.

See you soon future Highlander ?
