"UCI students are adventurous and want to go out and do stuff. I’ve gone hiking in the Azusa Mountains and then come back the same day to go to a barbeque on the beach."
Anteaters have more fun.
At UCI, student life is well worth living.
In addition to providing a world-class education, UCI also brings you an exciting, vibrant student life. There are concerts, festivals, movie screenings, comedy nights, and many other special activities throughout the year just waiting for you and your friends. Several of the most popular annual campus-wide events include Shocktoberfest and Homecoming.
Have interests? Odds are, others in our student body share them.
Dance crews. e-Sports. Greek fraternities and sororities. You can compete, volunteer, and pursue what you enjoy the most, all while make lifelong friends. And if you’re into athletics, you can play an intramural or club sport or earn a roster spot on one of our 18 NCAA Division I athletic teams.
Around it's quiet. Just down the road it's really, really not.
Having fun is a big part of student life at UCI. You're only minutes away from the beach, and you can also road trip to Los Angeles and San Diego or visit famous destinations such as Disneyland. So come to UCI, and join us for the time of your life!
"Initially it was a culture shock coming here. But UCI students are so welcoming and accepting. It's easy to find people you get along with and build connections."
