One of the flagship institutions of the University of California system, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is a public research university with an excellent reputation. UCLA ranks among the most economically diverse ‘elite’ schools in the country and represents students from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. With more than 180 majors to choose from, eight million library books to check out and some of the best faculty in the world across the board, students have endless possibilities. UCLA creates a unique freshman year experience by having first-year students participate in a yearlong Freshman Cluster, a series of small group seminars taught by top faculty. Students can also take advantage of top-notch athletics and attend the bitterly contested annual football game against the University of Southern California. With an enviable reputation as a center of academic excellence and an incredible location in one of the biggest cities in the world, students come to UCLA for the best of both worlds.
