  • The campus is great with a Mondavi vineyard and wine production, a new art museum to open in Nov and great open spaces. 
  • A widespread campus with many interesting works of Art and architecture to tour. Make sure you make it over to see the cows. They love a good scratch! 
  • I imagine the school is pretty good despite the large number cows we saw around campus. This is your typical college town. Everything is designed for students and life in Davis seems to revolve around UC Davis and bicycles. I would avoid Greek life if you enjoy having a high GPA.
  • I took the extension class in Autism Spectrum Disorder.... The teachers were really nice and they always had the mood to help. I learned a lot about the Autism spectrum disorder! Thank You!
  • Beautiful campus! There on an 8th grade trip with kids and girls in the quad taking their clothes off being spray painted for a cause. Gotta love college.
  • Visited the college and it seemed hopeful. When I chatted with the students and faculty there, I was grosstly mistaken. I knew about the protesting incident and I wanted to know what, if anything, has changed to promote a more healthy atmosphere for students. Instead I found myself disappointed by the faculty, feeling sorry for the students who were denied the right to protest, and an officer pull next to me asked me did I belong on that campus. I felt so welcome at UC Davis (sarcasm)
  • The 23 libraries are open to the public There is free Wi-Fi The best way to get around is by bicycle
