Davis is known as a cow town. It has a population of 64,000 and is situated among lots of farmland and vineyards in Northern California. UC Davis is also a highly ranked agricultural and veterinary school, so we have a vineyard and a farm with live animals on campus. Lots of people who have never been to Davis think it is in the middle of nowhere, with cows roaming around campus. And our students have a stereotype of being overly studious and grade-conscious. Davis is also seen as fairly liberal (not so much as Berkeley, perhaps), and students and residents are sometimes viewed as hippies.
Some stereotypes include: great percentage of asian students, classes are stressful, people that attend Davis are uptight and all about getting the best grades and don't like to party, and that everyone is there for agriculture and that we all like farms/cows.
I do not pay attention to the overall rumor mill about UC Davis or the student body. Although I should since I am a sociologist in training.
I guess I should say that one overall stereotype is that UC Davis has a high proportion of East Asian students.
