UC Irvine dorm/social life

arxo12arxo12 Posts: 12Registered User New Member
Hi Everyone!
I have been admitted to Irvine and I absolutely love the school. I was just wondering..

Which dorm is the most fun to be in? (social people, games, etc.)
Do any parties go on at UCI/ near UCI? Are there a lot of Newport beach parties?
Attractive guys? Good professors? Willing to help their students with research?
Are people friendly?
How do undeclared students choose their classes? First year is it all just general classes you need to take to graduate?

Please give me your opinion on Irvine. It would be much appreciated!!

    Guys at UCI receive a B- so I don't think there are many hot guys.

    For the dorms, I hear that its between Mesa Court and Middle Earth for incoming undergraduate freshmen:

    Mesa Court:
    Pros -
    Bigger rooms (more windows)
    More social people

    Cons -
    Longer walk to most classes

    Middle Earth -
    Pros -
    Better food
    Closer to classes

    Cons -
    Filled with weird people
    Antisocial

    That is horrible.. I took a tour two days ago and i saw some okay guys. As for the party scene, what have you heard?

    Thanks... Mesa court just doesnt seem very dormy to me. I think middle earth would be fun... i heard it is more social and although the rooms are small it gives a nice dorm aroma to it. i submitted my SIR but it wont let me apply for housing yet...do you know why
