UC Irvine

UC Irvine does things a little differently. It’s the youngest member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. And it gets the best of both worlds in Orange County—near SoCal’s sunny shores and flourishing tech coast.

Actually, everything about Irvine is a bit different—even the anteater mascot. It’s a university that goes against the grain, and reinvents the American dream. You see, education here isn’t serving the selected few—it’s for all.

Study here, and become one of Irvine’s independent thinkers. Our campus has the friendly feel of a small college, enlivened by a hugely diverse research community.

Come be a part of it.
