Off-Campus Housing: It is just like any other school where lots of people are trying to find housing. Everyone ends up somewhere though.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Davis may not have the most thriving social scene or reside in a busy and bustling city, but this college town provides a unique experience that the students love. With the bi-weekly farmers' markets, plethora of bikes, and variety of ethnic restaurants downtown, it is impossible not to fall in love with the small-town atmosphere. The laid-back vibe and the friendly community make students take pride in their school. The Davis students have a great relationship with the community, and events like Picnic Day and Whole Earth Festival celebrate the unity and diversity of Davis. Davis can be described as a "hidden gem." Its location is a little isolated, and it has the rep for being a cow town, but the atmosphere and friendliness of the people make the school a welcoming and fun place. And if the laid-back, small-town vibe is not satisfying enough, San Francisco, Tahoe, Napa, and Sacramento are only a short car ride away. The school provides the best of all worlds.

Studying at Davis will no doubt provide a unique college experience. It has a larger population of bikes than people, and the view from the dorm rooms consists of cows and stretching cornfields. The course load can be overbearing at times, but the benefits of graduating with a diploma from Davis are worth the extra hours spent in the library. Davis is perfect for a student looking for diversity and change, and almost all of the students that graduate from here are more than pleased with everything that Davis and the town have to offer.
