Let me just say coming in I really gave this university a chance, but I ended up transferring because I hated it so much. The faculty is very unhelpful. Expect many of your classes to be huge, especially going in as an undecided major or a science major.

My adviser was also unhelpful as he didn't seem to care about classes I actually wanted to take. He acted as if I was a number. Many professors are foreign , which I don't have a problem with, as long as they can speak English correctly. At one math class I was in, I noticed my professor had misspelled words on the board and many of us couldn't even understand what he was talking about.

The food here is terrible, especially at Marketpointe. Sometimes bugs can be found in the food there. If you are going to UC, expect to be served the same things day in and day out. There are often long lines in waiting for the food. However, there are some great restaurants around. There is a Chipotle, an Arbys, and there are many Chinese and Indian restaurants around the university. There is also a Kroger nearby within walking distance in case you want actual groceries.

Many buildings on the campus are falling apart. Inside Zimmer, when it rains, sometimes it leaks inside and there are puddles everywhere. The dorm rooms are tiny, which is to be expected at many universities, but the conditions are terrible in them. Paint is peeling off of the walls in some rooms and the air conditioning is terrible. The bathrooms are disgusting and also are falling apart. They are not cleaned everyday and there are puddles everywhere where you can slip and fall.

UC works for some people and doesn't for others. However, I would definitely not recommend coming here. I'm glad I transferred.

responseUC does suck…their staff really don't care about you, and the ones that even show remote signs of being human and not evil don't last long. UC is not a helpful university for getting in, and treat out-of-state students like crap!
