    HONOLULU, HI, February 05, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- To Terry Hay of New Zealand, it sometimes feels like just yesterday that he graduated from the University of California, Irvine. Although he enjoyed a successful career in the food distribution field after graduating from the university, at times it feels like no time has passed at all since he received his degree. Terry Hay of New Zealand graduated from the University of California, Irvine with an Economics degree in 1971, and is proud to call himself an alum of the university.

The University of California, Irvine (UC Irvine) is one of ten schools in the University of California (UC) system. The UC system is recognized as the state's most prestigious public school system, and the Irvine campus is no exception. Named for the town in which it is located, UC Irvine is considered a "Public Ivy" school. The school is unique in that it offers more graduate and professional degree programs than undergraduate programs. However, undergraduates can choose from 80 different programs of study, which is no small number.

UC Irvine has a strong research base, which has been recognized by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. The university is also a big name in teaching, as the campus includes a medical center, a health sciences system, a teaching hospital, and owns part of the arboretum at the University of California Natural Reserve System.

Known as the UC Irvine Anteaters, the school's athletes compete in the Big West Conference in the NCAA Division I, and the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. Additionally, UC Irvine has won 28 different national sports championships since 1969.

To Terry Hay of New Zealand, all of these features of the school attracted his interest. He explains, "I was interested in going to a school that focused on more than just academics. UC Irvine had already sold me on their prestigious programs, but I wanted something more." For this reason, the school's athletics, numerous clubs and activities, and its research and teaching opportunities helped Terry Hay of New Zealand to make the final decision to attend.

Looking back, Terry Hay of New Zealand knows that he had a great college career. He was able to pursue his academic interests, while enjoying all of the other features of UC Irvine. He explains, "UC Irvine met all of my expectations and beyond. I'm truly honored to be a graduate."
