You must be such a well rounded and interesting person. Your job still sounds boring and stupid as fuck, but I know you'll love sitting in a basement all damn day typing numbers into a screen until you go blind at 40

Classes may be less fulfilling as their are hundreds of students per class.
You might have to wait 2/3 years to fully engage the material in a specialized course.
Because of the sheer amount of people there a re lots of organizations and niches. However, greek life will inevitabley overpower everything else and the social scene will revolve around that.
You will meet far more distasteful and stupid people than you will interesting ones.
I don't go to a state school so you may want to ask someone else. However, I do like to have a good time and don't mind the "Greek" scene.

State school here, this is 100% true

also fuck the athletics program
>>
>>53360018
>classes are less fulfilling
>waiting to engage material
Basically this. You have to put up with so much shit that private schools don't require you to do. State schools aren't terrible, they're just way less good.

Why do American Universities seem to have exceptionally gay nicknames, like maroon panthers, ubiquitous knights and as above, trojans?

There are so many it becomes hard to find another animal or ancient society to name your team after

>>53360214
Eh it seems you guys have "grass is greener on the other side" syndrome. It's aiight here

I enjoy it here because of the smallish class sizes and your professors and councilors seem to get to know you personally. It's very tight knit

There also isn't a lot of sjw types roaming around so that's nice

Uclas campus is quite beautiful though and I imagine Los Angeles has better weather than Tulane
>>
>>53360370
>smaller classes and fewer sjws

if you guys have fewer chinese and koreans too I will apply for a transfer tomorrow

That i require magnums when pounding your shemale mum in the arse? Maybe

Why would you want to name your society/club after gay sounding things? Here's an idea, if there's a mongolian knitting society, call it mongolian knitting society. Not fucking magenta khans.
>>
>>53360438
I really wish they'd put a cap on foreigners. I am studying at UCI and I swear half the school is either a chink or street shitter
>>
>>53360465
>knitting society
What the fuck? Where did this come from?

It's mainly for people who like the sports, they use it for the mascots. I'm not sure if Europeans have mascots in the same way we do, I've only heard of the team names. If you do, what do you use for the costumes?
>>
>>53359327
people only know my school for a sorority recruitment video

JUST
>>
>>53360465
Whatever, family. You were probably never played team sports, or if you did, you were the whiny bitch what warmed the bench. I'll have fun seeing the gayness in your shitty little island of a country.

Around 15% Asian actually. Mostly white. Shocking number of blondes lol I think they all dye before coming here
Is the Asian problem at uc really as bad as they say?
>>
>>53360519
yeah fuck them a lot of them obviously cheated on the entrance exams too and continue to cheat in classes
>>

They don't call it the University of China for nothing

It's really fucking bad. I'm very worried about getting an Asian roommate next year

Used to be a part of the Big Ten, gave Gerald Ford his scar when he played for Michigan, and won the first Heisman trophy. Now we're a nerd school thanks to Hutchinson.

Why are they so bad? Do they act like dindus, or is it the funding?
>>
>>53360694
Hey, we are a very academically-rigorous school with little athletics. We did the first ever sustained nuclear reaction, and are home to Milton Friedman, among other things.
>>
>>53360551
None of the university teams has a mascot, why would you need one.

>>53360570
Literally everyone in the UK takes part in team sports. It's not like the US where chronic obesity means you can't get off your supersize mobility scooter.
>>
>>53360685
>my tax dollars going to these spoilt foreigners' education
>my tax dollars
Wot? they have to pay full tution and get charged higher rates than all other students.
There cash cows for schools m8.
>>
>>53360685
This. State universities should never have tried to become elite schools, it's just the opposite of what they should be for. I wish I could transfer out to a good private school but it's a bit difficult with grade deflation (instituted probably because of aforementioned foreigners)

>>53360739
We pay for the buildings and dorms and the institution with our taxes even if they have to pay more. There should be a 2% cap on foreigners.
>>
>>53360638
>>53360664
Well at least you guys get a decent education on the cheap
>>
>>53360722
in general, they're racist, don't speak english, have a much higher rate of cheating, some of the internationals are very very unsanitary

>>53360791
>cheap
Hahahahaha.
>>
>>53360731
>Why would you need one
I don't know, it's just an American sports culture thing. I guess that answers your question about why we have so many universities known as the Fighting Trojans

>ÔÇťAbsent additional funding, UC is not in a financial position to absorb more California students beyond those we currently serve. As such, campuses have been instructed to keep their enrollment of California students flat, meaning that we are not in a position to add additional California resident students for whom there is no additional state support," Napolitano told an Assembly budget subcommittee on education finance.

This is why UC schools try to attract out of state and foreign kids m8. They pay 2-3 times what Californians do and your state spends too much.

Suchs having so much spics

How's the area around the campus
USC surroundings are kinda ghetto but improving

>All these angry UC students

we should form a gang :^)

>>53360913
Hyde Park (the immediate neighborhood) is a really nice neighborhood that could pass as its own college town nested in Chicago. The area surrounding that, however, is classic South Side.

No, but I know one.
