What's UC Riverside's neighborhood community like?

<p>Is it pretty safe, or is it like Berkeley, which has a lot of crime. My cousin wants to go to either UC Riverside or Santa Clara University. I know Santa Clara University's neighborhood is pretty decent.</p>

<p>i think riverside's pretty safe with occasional crime...but i guess that's like any other city
there's some sketchy areas but i think as long as you don't go wandering around at night it's ok</p>

<p>depends what part of campus . East side of campus (where the dorm are) is within a rich white urban area.the west side of campus borders the ghetto.</p>
