What students and alumni are saying

Attending a highly immersive academic environment forced me to look inward and ask myself what I wanted out of life. At UCR, I have the world at my fingertips and have been able to explore various avenues and career choices along the way. I would not be here today without strong mentor-mentee relationships with several faculty members who have sacrificed much of their time and resources to help me in many ways.
