    What I Like About Revelle

    My favorite Revelle GE is the Fine Arts requirement. Through this requirement I learned how many talented people there are outside of the sciences and how rigorous these courses can be. I took VIS 41 which taught me the intricacies of design and typeface, which was very interesting. I would like to tell anyone in Revelle, that is not an art major, that the Fine Arts requirement is something to look forward to because this is an opportunity to expand your horizons.

    My favorite part about Revelle is the people. Everyone here is very welcoming, no matter if you are a first-year or a transfer. There are a variety of opportunities presented in Revelle for your career or college life, and through these opportunities you become more involved in the Revelle community. In this community you can meet an assortment of people of different cultures, ideals, race, etc. I honestly love it, as I always like meeting new and different people.

    What I Like About Revelle

    My favorite Revelle GE is the Natural Science requirement! I was able to take some really cool classes outside of the scope of my normal major classes and they were all so intriguing and exciting. One of my favorite classes I’ve taken at UCSD so far was PHYS 5, Stars and Black Holes, which I chose as one of my Natural Science classes. I loved this class because we got to talk about outer space and how our solar system came to be, how black holes are formed what would happen if you ever fell into one. This class made me feel so small but so in awe of the world that we live in.

    My favorite part about Revelle is definitely the people. All the people I meet in Revelle are so driven and ambitious and supportive of one another. You really get a sense that everyone wants to see you succeed. I loved making Roger’s runs in the mornings and studying late into the night at Galbraith with my friends. Being a Revelle student is like being in such a friendly and warm community and I really love being a part of it.

    What I Like About Revelle

    My favorite Revelle GE is the Fine Arts requirement because there are so many fun classes that a student can take to fulfill this requirement. For this requirement, I took MUS 13 which allowed me to explore various types of Latin music. I found this class extremely interesting because not only did I get to learn about music that I was not often exposed to, but I also learned about the different cultures that the music originated from. I really enjoyed learning about a topic that is outside of the scope of my major. 

    My favorite part of Revelle College is the community! Everyone here is always so supportive and encouraging. Revelle has really became a home away from home and I am truly grateful for all the wonderful people I have met here!
