    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 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!

    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 l like about Revelle
    My favorite GE is the natural science requirement! I took BILD 32  (Introduction to Cancer Biology) to fulfill the Biology requirement, and it was super cool. For the first time, I realized biology is closely related to my personal life, whether for cancer detection, growth, and treatment. It was also the first time I learned from class how the medical field evolved in the 21st century in terms of detecting cancer in its early stages. The course made me know how to protect myself and my loved ones against cancer.

    Favorite Revelle Memory: The sunset from Keeling Apartments! Every time I returned to my dorm in Keeling Apartments from classes, I saw gorgeous sunset blending with the ocean on the corridor. The fantastic view suddenly swiped all my worries away and made me cherish every moment in Revelle.

    What I like about Revelle

    My favorite Revelle GE is the Humanities Sequence. I am a person who does not like to read a lot. This sequence helped me push my boundaries and read books that I never thought I would read. There are multiple perspectives that can be formed on the same text. The Humanities sequence taught me how to best use my words along with evidence to make a strong argument that supports my claim. It is a skill I would have never learned by myself and am glad I got the opportunity to learn it.

    My favorite part about Revelle is the close-knit community that it has to offer. Everyone here is always welcoming and supportive. I love that everyone is ambitious yet helpful and caring towards each other’s needs. It has become my second home and has provided me with something I will never forget.

    What I like about Revelle

    My favorite university requirement is the DEI requirement. I took ANTH 21, Race and Racisms, in which I learned so much about the nuances of racial identities. I think that this GE is a great way to expand your understanding of society and work towards creating inclusive environments. 

    I like the inclusive and open atmosphere of the Revelle community. I am motivated by each and every student here for their passion and dedication. I love the fact that I was welcomed and acknowledged for all of my identities, and I am proud to be part of Revelle.
