What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Davis should be everyone's dream school. With the small student to faculty ratio in class room it's easier to participate and be involved in the class. The professors are also really interesting and always there if we require any help. I love this school and strongly encourage people to apply to this faculty.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I believe that UC Davis is great school. It might seem like you are in the middle of nowhere, but there are still a lot of thing you can do in Davis. There are a lot of clubs, organizations, sport events, and a variety of events that are planned throughout the school year. For example, there is an event called Whole Earth Festival where different vendors come to sell their products and the event is a zero waste event. UC Davis also has a lot of teachers that care about students and their needs. Personally, I was struggling in a lot of my classes, and I talked to my teachers and TAs. They were all really supported of me and gave me options and advice on how I can improve. Some people may not realize that the relationships between teachers and students are very important and UC Davis has some of the best staff that make going to school enjoyable. UC Davis may might just seem like a college with cows, but there is something for everyone from all over.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall my experience at Davis was overwhelmingly positive-as evidenced by my four star rating. The bottom line is that college is what you make of it and Davis gives you opportunities to make that experience a great one. There are an abundance of research opportunities in every field, enthusiastic professors, clubs for any interest you could think of, as well as great internship opportunities. Pretty much anything you want to get involved in, you can. Despite the large class sizes of the lower division courses Davis gives you all the resources you need to be academically successful. From office hours (which are almost always empty FYI) to TA's, tutors, and study groups there is an abundance of academic support available. Yes there are negatives, you will come across bad professors, and sometimes it will be so challenging you will question your intelligence (probably a lot) but this is something that you will find at almost any college. College isn't all parties and sipping iced coffee while binging Netflix it is hard and you will make sacrifices, but the experience and education you get by attending Davis makes it worth it. In fact I enjoyed my time at Davis so much that I am returning for graduate school. I don't think you can get a much better review than that!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's extremely okay, if I were to simplify my feelings about this place. Some things are good, and something aren't so great. There's a lot to be said, for example, about the administration (at least coming from the perspective of someone whose social groups tend to be more politically inclined).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending the University of California Davis was the best decision I have ever made. Due to this decision, I was able to meet excellent professors, educate myself to levels I thought were not possible and found the kindest, smartest and funniest friends I could ever ask for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion is that the campus is overall beautiful. It's very spacious and you're always surrounded by nature. It does have a small town, but nothing wrong with that because it's very homely and you can always a weekend trip to Sacramento or San Francisco. The activities on campus are great and there are so many opportunities to get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was blown away from the moment I arrived at the university for my tour. I immediately fell in love with the campus and the diversity culture that UC Davis embraces. Mostly I was impressed with my professors, exceptional lecturers from universities around the world, who are incredibly knowledgeable, are constantly researching new ideas and technologies, while also finding time for their "hungry" students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Davis provides an incredibly comfortable but academically rigorous environment that is conducive to academic and personal achievement both in and outside of school. Other students are incredibly friendly and genuinely understand the benefit of collaboration over the more concerning trends of prohibitive competition in institutions of higher rank. There are numerous opportunities to explore whatever interest you may have and all extracurricular organizations are very welcoming of new members.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UCD is a very cultural school. You will always find someone or group you can relate and hangout with. The advisors want the best for you and they do their best to keep you in school. I thought of dropping out but I was convinced by my advisors that with a lot of work and determination I can finish strong. However, the city is quite but with friends you can make all the fun you want.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Davis has a rather "chill" environment. The academics can be difficult, and there is not a ton of parties, but the overall atmosphere is not super intense like it can be at other academically competitive schools. There is a lot of opportunity for students to do research with professors, and generally, professors are easily accessible.
