UC Davis is a great small town community with top-notch academics and plenty of activities to help you find where you belong. Davis may be known for being the "cow town" of UC's but it is so much more than that. There is something for everyone, whether you want to go Greek, love to dance, enjoy politics, or maybe you even do love the cows, Davis is ready to be your college choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Davis is a great place if you aren't a whiner. It is one of the top public universities in the country, which is why many people attend; however there are also a lot of upper middle class or affluent folks who didn't get into a fancy private school or Berkeley/UCLA and are SERIOUS whiners. If you don't listen to the negativity and choose to be proud of what you have achieved you will love it. There's mostly just restaurants around UCD, but concerts happen on campus or in the nearby Greek Theater in Berkeley which you can bus to for free. There are parties with what little Greek life there is, but they're pretty hit or miss (which can make for fun stories). There is a lot of support for first generation college students as well as for a whole array of identities. Some of the buildings need a little work and the Tercero DC can be a little gross, but overall a great, quiet, calm place to go to school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Davis is definitely a university for learning. It's not a party school. All of the professors that I've had are genuinely there to help me succeed and earn my degree. On top of that, they want me to learn. Within the chemistry department, all of the faculty is so tight-knit and friendly, they're like a big family. Starting school here, I was welcomed with open arms into the chemistry department through extracurricular activities and gatherings held by the department. All in all, UC Davis is a wonderful university that puts education first and foremost and throws in a bunch of fun on the side.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the University of California, Davis is very positive. There are many accessible facilities, resources, clubs and other activities on the campus. It is the main area of the Davis area, which means it is very close to outside complexes and apartments. The professors are very professional and are very accessible to students. Students campus safety is prioritized with the campus police and very astute students. I would recommend UC Davis to my friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Davis overall is one of the best schools I have ever visited. The reason that I say this is because this university is in a town where everything is by and for the students. Here everyone does not matter who, is welcomed into the community because thats why were are here for. I couldn't be happier to have chosen this school to attend because I feel that I choose the best option for me. I am very thankful that this school exists.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UC Davis is an amazing university. Everyone is equally diverse and the whole population of students is super friendly and intelligent. The campus itself is very green friendly. We are known for the bikes of course but the campus itself is also known for recycling. I fell in love when I visited the school campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

What is it that keeps students enrolled in the University of California-Davis? Could it be the various food trucks, squirrels, or perhaps the mascot named Gunrock? Most students would probably not consider these items when forming their opinion on the campus. But every daintily detail makes up what this college stands for. Beginning with academics, there are various resources to guide students towards the graduation podium. Through my experience, the professors make sure to announce their office hours on the easy to access syllabus. The date and time arranged on the syllabus is subject to change depending on the student’s availability. Most professors also open up an extra day of office hours or redirect students to other educational sources. Personally, I have been stunned to find a large number tutors and teaching assistants right on campus. One time, I was confused on a topic covered in my chemistry course. Luckily, the tutors made it their mission to make sure that I understood the topic well. The tutors sat and helped me until the facility closed. As I closed the doors of the Dutton Hall Tutoring Center, I could not help but smile. Not only did the tutors help me boost more confident in my studies, but I also gained a support team on campus. When I was on the verge of giving up, the tutors reminded me that through diligence and practice I can jump over any obstacle. For this, I rate the academic makeup of UC Davis’s campus with 5 stars. Of course, this opinion may vary depending on the staff hired but off my experience, I have never left tutorial centers unsatisfied. Finding a perfect study spot is crucial. There are tons of indoor and outdoor tables perfect for group or solo studying. The library is also a perfect study spot when in the search of a quiet location. As mentioned, study spots are easy to find anywhere on campus, but some lack access to shade This can be dauting to the students because a new distraction is created from the burning sun. Moving on to the social life, UC Davis is home to friendly students ready to engage in a conversation ranging from casual to intellectual. As I roam through campus, I am delighted to hear that students care to bring awareness towards sensitive topics such as immigration policy, climate change, and current issues. A simple conversation may also begin in the coffee house or any other location. Students are open to hear different opinions regardless of the ones they believe in. This makes it very comfortable for students to socialize and learn about their fellow peers. But socialization does not end there. From the classroom to the quad to the food trucks, it is very easy to hear about extracurricular activities such as clubs, sports, and Greek life. The green landscape, socialized squirrels, and hundreds of bikes make UC Davis feel like a home. The student culture and pride are astounding. UC Davis students help each other grow, and for this, I rate the college student body as a 5. Finally, off-campus housing in Davis, CA is okay but not the best. There is a housing shortage and limited access to shops. I know a couple of students who prefer to commute to school from nearby towns to get a better living opportunity. Off-campus housing is not one of the strongest features of UC Davis and for this and other features, the campus rating is 4 stars. Overall, I have found satisfaction in the facilities offered by the department, the student body, and professors. As mentioned, all the small features such as furry squirrels, food trucks, and mascot all make up the premises of the university. Each feature makes UC Davis a unique campus full of opportunity and diversity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I chose UC Davis because of the community. I felt welcomed and saw many great opportunities as soon as I stepped on campus. I can't wait to be on the swim team and start learning new and interesting things in and out of class. I am ready to start my journey as an Aggie since I have already received such great advice from advisors and current students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful, but the quarter system is super fast. If you plan to attend, be ready to be on your toes from day one. The adjustment from high school (semester system) to the quarter system is a huge jump, but definitely possible. Huge tip: as a freshman, take no more than four classes, or 12 units, give yourself time to adjust.
