What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience with UC Davis has been that the campus cares for its students' success in providing a variety of services accessible free of charge. Though such services may be considered standard, such as recreational and fitness facilities, health and wellness centers, as well as art centers, there are a few things that UC Davis offers which make them particularly unique. UC Davis might be the only school within the UC system to have an equestrian team and is universally ranked as the top school in the nation for its veterinary programs. I personally enjoy the fact that UC Davis is a college town with a downtown Davis being walking distance from campus. The outdoor and spacious campus stood out to me when selecting schools, as the environment played up student health and well being over confinement and competition. From my personal experience within my own field of study, I found there to be plenty of research and networking opportunities available, with passionate staff and faculty who value discourse and student interaction. Tutoring is readily available on campus. The only downside to my experience so far is with minor grading/ rubric transparency, though this is based on the instructors that I have had. Overall, I have enjoyed my experience on campus so far, as it has provided me with community as well as academic opportunities, and I am satisfied completely with my choice in school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of California- Davis has been everything I expected the university to be. The atmosphere at the university is very welcoming with different professors and students who are willing to help. Most of the professors encourage students to attend office hours which can be helpful when the student has a problem or a question.I have attended office hours several times during my short time at UC Davis to ask my professors for help, and I am always willingly helped. The campus can feel very large and very small at the same time. There are many students at the university, but since the community is very welcoming the campus does not feel too big. At the times when the campus does seem too big and difficult to handle, there are always resources to help the students. One of the resources that has been the most helpful to me is the academic counselor that helps me with my classes. Choosing classes can be stressful at times, so the academic counselors help alleviate this worry. The greek life at UC Davis is closely regulated therefore there are few cases of hazing. If a student does not want to join a sorority or fraternity they are not seen as less by other students like at other universities. Finally, the party scene is mild at UC Davis. There are parties to be found, but they are not like the ones depicted in the movies. Overall, I feel very satisfied with my choice of being a student at UC Davis.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love my university. After being an undergraduate student for three years, I have grown to be very active on campus. I have two on campus jobs, I am an officer of multiple clubs, I am a member of Greek life and I hold an officer position within my sorority, and I am a UC Advocacy Network Ambassador. I have participated in multiple study abroad programs and I have found a lot of opportunity for growth on and off campus. Davis is very warm, welcoming, and inviting, despite being a large campus, and I have found it easy to make a close group of friends. While there are hiccups here and there with certain administration and student government, Davis is overall a lovely university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Academically competitive and fast paced quarter system. Challenges me to do my best. Easily found roommates with similar interests and academics. Campus is the largest of the University of California campuses (over 5,000 acres) in a rural area with a local town, restaurants, and neighborhoods. Almost all students use a bike on campus. There are fraternities and sororities that are easy to join.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Davis provides an environment conducive to learning and inquiry, hosting a wide range of viewpoints. I have never been on a more inclusive campus, and I feel free to ask questions and air any problems I may have. Every single person I have met on campus, whether they are a student, advisor, or professor, etc. has been kind and encouraging to me!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UC Davis. There are cows a five minute walk from my dorm room, how could I not love it? It is a community of wonderful and intelligent individuals that I am so grateful to be apart of. UCD is also a huge research facility, so if that's something you're interested in, look no further. If you are looking to pursue a career relating to animals or agriculture, then UC Davis is absolutely the place for you. Also, make sure you know how to ride a bike!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

They say college is the best time of your life. Sure, that is true to a certain degree. However, those same people forget to mention the struggles you’ll be enduring in order to make it through your college career. The following includes, but is not limited to, such dilemmas: mental breakdowns, failed classes, roommate / housemate drama, heartbreak, loss of a loved one, financial trouble, crippling debt, homelessness, the potential for any kind of assault, discrimination, imposter syndrome and homesickness. Yes, that is a lot to take in. Pursuing a higher education is never an easy task. However, once you get passed that nasty little reality check, it sure as hell is worth it. Attending UC Davis was the best decision I made in my academic career. Yes, there were a plethora of struggles but all of that is overshadowed by the amazing experiences I had whilst there. I made long lasting friendships, my view of the world opened up, the knowledge I obtained from classes enhanced the love I had for my future career, certain professors went above and beyond to help their students understand the material, extracurricular activities were abundant, school spirit was always beaming especially around Picnic Day, and there were never a shortage of bicycles. Could you believe there was such a thing as bike traffic? There sure is! Our favorite little cow town is known as the bicycle capitol of the United States! Like many other students, I too will always have a special place in my heart for UC Davis.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Davis is a beautiful school filled with plenty of students riding around on their bikes. The on-campus housing is really nice, and they have various resources to help incoming students. The off-campus housing can be expensive, but they are near the campus and look really nice. They always have a variety of foods for students that go to the dining centers, and they even have some taco trucks available around the campus. There are Unitrans that students could take for free to go to different places around Davis and even outside of it. Some classes are bigger than others, but that should not be a problem for students. There are several clubs and sports for students to participate in, but they can cost extra. Academics are important to most in school, and there are many places where one could go to study. Overall the school is a wonderful place, and anyone that attends would love it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think UC-Davis is a great campus with a not too competitive environment and people are also really friendly, and there is a large enough crowd of people where you can find your own group of people. The academics here are a little rigorous though but they do have some basic easy electives that anyone who chooses can take. There is also a lot of diversity on campus which is good.
