Fun Destinations


Founded in 1954, UC Riverside is home to 20,000 students, all of whom get unlimited RTA bus rides with their college IDs. Despite its setting in Southern California, UCR has a distinctly Scottish feel. All residence halls are named for landmarks in Scotland. The school's original mascot was a live Scottish terrier; today, sports teams are supported by a kilt-clad bear named Scotty. About 70 percent of UCR students are commuters, and freshmen do not have to live on campus. The university offers well-regarded graduate programs through the Bourns College of Engineering and Graduate School of Education. Notable alumni include Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Steve Breen, best-selling mystery novel author Elizabeth George and Nobel Prize-winning chemist Richard Schrock.
