Students should posses skills such as the following (not all required, but be capable of learning):
UC Riverside is part of the University of California system, widely recognized as the preeminent public university system in the world.

We have sunny summers and warm winters with over 270 days of sunshine a year. We are within 1 hour driving distance from Los Angeles and Orange County, the ocean (with many beautiful beaches), the mountains (for hiking, skiing, snowboarding), and the desert (Palm Springs, Joshua Tree, and Coachella!). Las Vegas is only 4 hours driving distance. ;-)
