This is Claudia do. She's a student. The Palmer. Our school of business. Could you introduce yourself? Yeah. Hi, everyone. My name is Claudio. Do I'm a third year business initiation student at U. C. Irvine under the Palmer Off school of business. So why did you use your school? So I knew I wanted to stay in California when I was applying to colleges, and I knew I wanted to do business. I want to be Khan. I wanted to strictly business. And the on ly three, you see, is like within California who do business. Berkeley, Irvine and Riverside. Um, I also knew I wanted to go to school in Southern California, so I basically just aimed for UC Irvine all their high school. Is there anything about u C. Irvine? That special specifically for the business school you noticed specifically for the business school. So we're relatively new school. I believe we've been around for four to five years right now. Um, and I think it's kind of good that we knew because we're constantly, you know, when you're constantly changing the structure of the school to kind of compete with other business school. So I think It's really cool that were new. So you told me the business school also has its own student body. Couldn't tell me about that. Yeah. So I'm part of Moosa, which stands for the Maraj Undergraduate Student association, which is basically the student government of garage. So specifically my position. I'm v p of active affairs. So I basically act as a liaison between academic and faculty. But basically, Moussa is It's just like the governing body of the of business students who basically kind of like, help students like academically and professionally. Do you plant like activities? Yeah. So we plan. And, um, so all week one, we plan, like welcome weeks for them. Um, specifically my role I want to focus on, like, transfer students and engaging them into the community. So I held a lot of events for transfer suits, Um, thirty years and fourth years, but we typically and finally, most Ross students to Arbenz. And what was your major business administration? How is that different from other majors here? The school? Yeah. So, basically the main business majors at UC Irvine, Our business administration or business. E con eso business economies actually under the school of social science. And I believe the majors is more focused on like Ik Kon and like statistics, while Business Administration is kind of what the overall arching business in general. So we have, like, emphasis, is or like specializations. So you can do, like accounting, finance, marketing, um, organizational management. So we have all these, like they, uh, like branches of business versus other majors. They just have like they're one major, which is the and how are the classes like? Are they difficult or easy academic climate, like so? I actually really like our business classes because because our school smaller because we're relatively new, a lot of our classes are very engaged. So I want to say that the maximum classroom sizes about like one hundred students and, like the smallest, could be like thirty, which I really like it. It's almost as if like you're going to a public school, but you're getting like a private school education. At least the business school. Um, and most of our business school assignments are very project based. So we work in groups very often on DH. Then I just like it cause it's very interactive with your classmates. No further business school. And you see, I in general, what's your favorite part and least favorite? So you see, in general, I probably say my favorite part is the location. Definitely. I feel like I'm obviously very biased, but I feel like Irvine has the best location. We're only an hour away from L. A and we're only like, four five minutes away from San Diego and Irvine specifically is surrounded by great food and the location just very clean. It's very safe, and it's really beautiful. What about your least favorite part? Um, I would probably say my least favorite part. It's probably the parking. Yeah, so are parking structures are constantly filled. And it's actually a very common problem for people. So, like, be late to school sometimes because they can't find parking or it takes like, thirty to forty minutes to find parking. The drunker I don't buy have friends who dio and they complain to me. So So do you take the bus to school or how do you know? So I I actually live twenty minutes walking from campus, so I basically walked to school every day, so that be a smart thing to do? Yes, yes. If you want to, like, live on your campus, you should definitely live like on campus or like a like a neighboring apartment or some. Well, that sounds good. Thank you. here. So this is a door s way, have you? We have honey space, including Justin. Plenty of lost face with mirrors. Can you space off up for people who like attention? She can't manager. We got, like, space here for anything you need. Basically, it's adultery. We have. Everybody comes with my crew's white boy, things like that and enjoys for you people you're not. And with that, we are for this each with their own three with you because that one did not. Because it's college. You want to go out with people. Everyone gets Kelly these keyboards because I liked you better. Pro gamer. And you, you know You know what? Wait, Have you? Which comes with it? 26 So descends to what Get my steps in my cardio, my calories offices. And then over the reaction circles around you, this entire candles to light cycles, you kind of get anywhere. That's mean. So So this is a ring road. We got basically a huge part. We're hoping gettinto across campus line just to get to each of the major, this one being humanity way. Have anti running civilians trying to do only going to wear beautiful nature way big. Ask Howard. Come on, the talent like, How do you want now? Wait Very smooth sciences. You have like, bio physics now because this campus is so large we get, like law and other things way off in the distance because they had to be after they want it really shouldn't. It's not that we also have medical way over there, which also has its own like nature. Do you think of that? Here's the front of the campus, which has a pickup lane for communities. Additionally, you confined tents set up for selling foods. However, there are more scenic spot on campus, especially west of the campus. We can view the campus park from the stairs. Wait, you're really going basically like this location allowed to get married. And you? Every ceremony? No. Who do we like you walking the classes, cameras and getting married and saying they're pals? But here it's beautiful. The building here also kind of says that the place, I want to get into UC I. There's a couple of things to consider. Most importantly, really, what determines your admissions, not only with your G P a n your grades you got in school. That attests, Tio, What they can see of your character Us Really? What they see extracurriculars are important. Show that your social doing things for the community, um, show what skills you have that other people may not have. If you're good at building things, make something, make a make a shadow or make a device and really display it on a Web site. You know, if you want to make personal website, that's great. Because it expands what the college admissions people know about you. Um, also, I want to make you where that because your major really is what determines whether you I have an easier time getting into UC I or not. Sometimes it may be easier just to choose a less critical major one that's has higher acceptances to get into. And once you get into you see, I, um then he concession to the major. You want this? I wouldn't call it cheating, but if you really want to get into the school. Um, this is a way to do it, because if you apply it to computer science that you see, I you might have a harder time than if you fly for electrical engineering, then switched to computers times once you're in. You see, I Now, if you're a transfer student, be aware that you cannot transfer to the You see, I, um information and computer science to school starting in twenty twenty because they're opting out of the tag program specifically for the computer science program here at U. C. I, um So, you know, if your transfer student, you will have to deal with that if you want to do computer science. But really be aware that you can change your major, change your major when applying and booth you sent development for the engineering section is what?

It can seat up to approximately 250 students for exit, a projector screen and one beautiful Oakwood podium. Of course, there's also classrooms for discussions, which can look nice as the one shown, but it depends on the class. Then there's some classes you're going to have to take for laps somewhere to discussion classes. These costs Khun very drastically, depending on the clock. If you notice the lecture always surrounded by surround sounds, which are used for the professor as he speaks in the mike, since his voice has to reach all the students in that in addition to the student faculty ratio is 18 toe one eighteen 18 being the number of students.
