The alleged mass murderer at a Colorado movie theater attended UCR on a merit-based scholarship, according to school officials, and had a fine mind.
According to the school's chancellor, James Holmes never had trouble with campus police and his academic achievements made him "the top of the top," University of California Riverside Chancellor Timothy P. White said in a news conference.
"He distinguished himself academically," school information officer Bettye Miller told Patch.

In Riverside County, sheriff's officials said they were not going to add patrol hours or manpower.
"The Riverside County Sheriff's Department is ready at a moment's notice to respond to any emergency event that may occur within our areas of service," Deputy Alberto Martinez told Patch.
"However, patrol operations continue as normal in our areas."
The suspected gunman in what is being called a massacre at a Colorado movie theater - 12 people were gunned down and scores were wounded - graduated with honors from the University of California Riverside in 2010, officials said.
James Holmes, 24, wore all black clothing and had a gas mask on when he set off some sort of irritant and began firing weapons early Friday, during a midnight showing of the new Batman movie.
When the shooting was over, 12 people were fatally wounded and another 50 or so were hurt, officials said.
Of those killed, 10 people were still dead in the movie theater mid-morning Friday, as investigators worked to process the scene, officials said.
According to Bettye Miller, information officer with UCR, Holmes attended the school from the fall of 2006 to the spring of 2010, graduating with a bachlor's degree in neuroscience.
He graduated with honors, Miller told Patch.
According to officials who spoke with the media at a news conference, police recovered at the scene an assault rifle, a Glock handgun and a Remington rifle.
Another Glock pistol was found in the alleged shooter's white Hyundai.
Officials in Colorado quickly gathered to debrief officers on the incident and to assure the public that the shooting was an isolated incident and that people will be safe.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said the act was depraved and said he understood that people are alarmed about the event.
"Show me anyone who has children and think about your child in that movie theater. That reality makes the pain and the grief too intense for words," Hickenlooper said in a live-streamed news conference.
"But we can't let it keep us from our lives," Hickenlooper said.
The University of California, Riverside can confirm that a person by this name graduated from UCR with a bachelor's degree in neuroscience in the Spring of 2010. His last known address was in San Diego.
