UC is what UC is. A pretty basic, hands off kind of place geared towards young college students. These are the kind of students that understand that they aren't going to get the nicest furniture, because they will probably destroy it anyway, and don't really care all that much about staff service(we never had much of a problem) other than the fact that all the girls are hot(good eye Scott) And hell yes, there are parties. That's what happens when you pack 700 college kids together, most of whom are experiencing their first time living somewhere other than mom and dad's house or the dorm. It's the college experience dudes, come on.
If you are finding it a bit too loud for you most nights, chances are you probably should have picked an apartment complex other than the one with 700 kids, big pool, and a reputation for partying. Hell, there are quieter complex's just down the road if that is what you are looking for. Me and my roommates knew what we were getting into and had some of the best times of our college years. I met a ton of people that I am still friends with today. We even managed to do just fine in our classes. And guess what, after a couple years there we were ready to move out to a quieter place with nicer furniture and cleaner toilets. But we still tell stories about the good ol' UC days.
So, if you are a grad student with four hours of homework every night, or someone with a full-time job to wake up to every morning, chances are you should look elsewhere, instead of moving in and then writing angry reviews on the internet after you realize that young college kids are gonna have some parties and forget to clean up all their beer cans. Tell you what, go ahead and review yourself, and give yourself one star for being the numbnuts that chose to live there in the first place.
