The University of California-Davis is friendly and beauty university. Campus is very large and it recommended you ride a bike to get to class, almost everyone does. Bike traffic does exist, so be careful! In addition, there are many great resources on campus, such as the mind and body spa, to help you relax before finals, or the SCC which is a safe space for all students. Classes are pretty large but get smaller as they become more major-specific. Professors are a great resource for internships and research opportunities. Overall, the campus is great!

Bike capital of the world has given me some of my best experiences and the ability to finally have mastered the art of riding with no hands! I love that UC Davis has a long great academic history yet the campus and classrooms feel new due to continuously remodeling periods that create amazing study spaces. The hammocks at the quad are great for relieving stress from all the readings and tedious papers. My favorite part, everyone is super friendly and due to it's unique location you really get the college town university experience!

As an Aggie, it's very hard to not catch the Aggie Pride bug, our Intramural Rugby team are 2015 National Champions and may look to be that way for this year as well. We're in league and have played some tough schools athletically speaking and as an UC we have some of the best facilities and professors in the world. The tough competition is present here, but there are ways to make it easier to adjust and insure your success by taking advantage of the many opportunities you can find, but you are responsible for your success here ultimately. This is a great school, very highly recommended but don't expect to coast, the quarter system will certainly teach you that, and apply for real-world experience! If you're successful at a UC, especially here, you'll do great after graduation!
