President of the TaeKwonDo Club, senior Ariana Xenakis, says that UCSD is the best college to apply to because of “their social liveliness, athletic programs, marketing program, and location.

Moreover, in UCB more than 4,000 master’s and professional degrees are awarded every year at Berkeley, which is known for the breadth and depth of its more than 120 graduate programs throughout its 15 schools and colleges. In addition, UCI is best for continually receiving national and global recognition for being a leader in a variety of sectors, achieving awards in every teaching.
