Tour Guide

Many people (especially those not familiar with the UC system) are thrown off by the quarter system when they first get here! With only 10 weeks each quarter for your classes, every week counts, and its ALWAYS midterm season! One pro about this academic calendar; however, is that you get to experience a wider variety of different classes in different fields and subjects. Also, if you don't particularly like a certain class, it'll be over in just weeks, so hang in there!
