  • The campus is great with a Mondavi vineyard and wine production, a new art museum to open in Nov and great open spaces.

  • I just could not get over the feeling that I was the one and only single African American who was surrounded by an endless mass of Asian Americans who was wondering what the heck was a person like me, doing on their campus!? I have met several nice students, but the diversity of people on campus has very little to do with the diversity of the real world.
  • I have been here for about 10 years as I was a undergraduate student and then became a graduate student with a one year gap in between. I love the environment here. Very peaceful, though the foods for graduate students can have some improvements.
  • 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 love this campus! It is home to me. The bike paths are the best in the western US. The university is an amazing place to study and learn.
  • 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.
