Anonymous asked: I missed the date for the analytical writing placement exam for CHASS for religious reasons, and like I called the UC office that administers these tests and they told me call CHASS, and CHASS said I'm talking to the wrong department for it and didn't help me and I don't know who to call or what to do to make a reappointment and I am strongly considering changing to a Bio major (currently creative writing) so do I even need to take it? I'm just freaking out man idk what to do.
Don’t worry, we’ll figure this out. There are five make-up dates in June; click here to check them out. Which UC office did you call? For the writing placement exam you would need to call UCR’s Academic Resource Center. Their phone number is (951) 827-1384. If you didn’t already meet the entry level writing requirement (here’s how), you’ll need to take the exam regardless of your major.

Travelling abroad has changed my life in so many ways. I’ve met amazing people from all over the world, visited places I never imagined I would and grown so much by living thousands of miles from anything remotely close to home. With just a little over a month before I pack my bags and head back to California, I’m both dreading having to return and dying to get back to what I know and love. While the University of Warwick is a great school and I’ve enjoyed the courses I’ve taken here, it doesn’t compare to my experiences at UC RIverside.
Since this blog is written to expose the truth about life at UCR, here is a perspective that won’t come to you from a pamphlet. While I honestly would stay here in England longer if I could, there are some things about UCR I wish I could have brought with me. Below are the reasons why, if I had to make the choice again, I would choose UC Riverside as my university.
