RIVERSIDE RANKS TOP 5 IN WORST POLLUTED CITIES IN THE USA.

YES, TOP FOUR IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY. I LIVE IN THE HILLS SO EVERYDAY WHEN I DRIVE TO SCHOOL I CAN SEE HOW BAD THE SMOG IS. IN THE MORNING THE SKIES ARE CLEAR, THEN BY 9-10AM YOU CANT EVEN SEE THE MOUNTAINS ANYMORE. POLLUTION IS ESPECIALLY BAD IN THE SUMMER. IF THEY TOLD ME THIS, I WOULD NEVER HAVE COME TO UCR BECAUSE BREATHING IN THIS CRAP FOR 4 YEARS WILL DEFINITELY DO SOME DAMAGE TO YOU.

MY FIRST YEAR, MY PEERS WERE REALLY INCOMPETENT. I AM NOT A NERD OR ANYTHING BUT.. WHAT HAPPENED TO STANDARDS? AT LEAST I COULD COUNT ON MY CLASSMATES FOR A EASY CURVE.

HOWEVER, THE INTELLIGENCE LEVEL OF THE SCHOOL HAS GONE UP A WHOLE NOTCH SINCE FOUR YEARS AGO. STILL.. IT ISN'T VERY COMPETITIVE.

FACULTY IS MEDIOCRE.

RESOURCES ARE GOOD BUT FEW TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM.

SOCIAL LIFE IS GOOD THE 1ST/2ND YEAR WITH HOUSE PARTIES/FRAT PARTIES. THAT SOON GETS VERY BORING, AND YOU ARE STUCK BECAUSE THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITHIN AN HOUR'S DRIVE.

CITY IS GHETTO, CRACKHEADS WALKING AROUND AT NIGHT IS EXPECTED. MY FRIEND WITNESSED A DRIVEBY WHICH RESULTED IN HOMICIDE IN HIS APARTMENT COMPLEX. CARS STOLEN, BROKEN INTO. GIRLS RAPED ON CAMPUS AT NIGHT.

WHY WOULD YOU COME HERE. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR.
