Despite its setting in Southern California, UCR has a distinctly Scottish feel. All residence halls at the University of California Riverside are named for landmarks in Scotland, including Aberdeen-Inverness and Pentland Hills. Student athletes compete as UCR Highlanders in the NCAA Division I Big West Conference. The school's original mascot was a live Scottish terrier; today, sports teams are supported by a kilt-clad bear named Scotty.

My experiences at UCR are firmly embedded in my memory. What an experience to be close to so many professional teachers and mentors. I worked very closely with Dr Lars Carplean and his encouragement and ability to "teach" set a lifestyle for me, founded on enjoying Autonomy and Helping others.

The on-campus community, along with accessibility to campus resources at UCR are unlike many campuses I have seen. I was lucky to have the support and inspiration from the outstanding (former) Chancellor, Timothy P. White. The variety of the courses, unique student body, and expertise of the professors all contribute to the performance and growth of any student and will truly prepare for what is on the other side of graduation.
I've met many engineers during my career who were educated at top ranked schools, yet the computer science program they were a part of was mediocre at best. They spent years working exclusively with high level languages like Java and building applications with no practical role, or spending the majority of their time as a slave to someone's research. At UCR, we studied everything from low level hardware, to drivers and operating systems, to user-level applications, and even games. We focused on languages and technologies that employers expected us to know. And we thrive in the industry.
