College Life Rating

As stated previously the social atmosphere is very benevolent. The fact that the school is so diverse sets a comfortable mood for every ethnicity. There are a wide variety of organizations and clubs that are available for everyone. The only issue I have with the athletics department is that they should get a football and cross country team. As far as weekend activities the college will usually have a karaoke night or etc for all students.


College Life Rating

While the campus itself is safe, I have heard reports of some crime in the surrounding areas, mostly theft of items such as laptops and bikes. Also, while Riverside has a few cool sights, the city itself is not the greatest college town, as it is far from major destinations.
