Quick History of UC Riverside

UC Riverside was originally founded as a UC Citrus Experiment Station in 1907, mainly due to Southern California becoming a main producer of citrus. A UC-administered College of Letters and Science opened in 1954 and eventually in 1959, UC became an official UC research campus. The university’s main 1,900-acre campus is in Riverside and a Graduate Center branch campus of 20 acres is located in Palm Desert.

Mascot

An election was held for the selection of a campus symbol in 1854 with a lot of controversy. Some students wanted to stick with a bear symbol to match UCLA and Berkeley. Others wanted a mascot that was completely different to symbolize the school’s individuality. The men’s basketball team came up with the “Highlanders” and it became the campus nickname. UCR’s mascot Scotty was originally a small bear in a kilt but was redesigned in 1998 to look more intimidating.

Notable Rankings

UC Riverside consistently ranks first as one of the most economically and ethnically diverse schools in the nation. The school became the first public university in the U.S to offer general-neutral housing options. They offer over 80 master and Ph.D. programs, including degrees unique to the university such as Dance Theory. UCR offers a medical degree program in collaboration with UCLA through School of Biomedical Sciences. In 2013, the first new medical school in California in 40 years was built at UC Riverside.
