University of California - Davis Reviews
UC Davis is one of a kind. Although Davis is not a busy or bustling college town, the campus is very diverse, safe, amazing, and eco-friendly. Students here are very dedicated to making the campus waste free! The quarter system and workload are both rationally challenging, but there is a myriad of professors/TAs and resources around campus that can benefit students at a flexible schedule. Regardless of your culture, religion, sexual orientation, or political beliefs, UC Davis is very accepting to everyone. There are a variety of clubs, student organizations, and extracurricular activities. Bike traffic does exist on campus, so students have to be extra careful before crossing streets, but above all this UC Davis is the place to be!
Only been here for a couple of weeks and already I can tell I'm going to thrive here. The campus is extremely beautiful, there is so much agriculture and life surrounding it that I never feel feel as though I'm not at home. The faculty here are great, even in the bigger classrooms I have the opportunity to talk to professors during their office hours. The dorm I'm staying in is brand new and the rooms are awesome, super spacious. The resources available here are enormous and there is support in nearly every corner of the school. Also the people here are super nice! I can talk to virtually everyone about anything. Overall awesome.
The linguistics department at Davis is phenomenal. Amazing, caring teachers and great education! The campus is gorgeous and there are a lot of activities. Unfortunately, the administration is terrible. They are hard to work with, they don't have great communication between departments and they really don't care about students as individuals. There is a lot of red tape and a ton of hoops to jump through if you ever need individual attention from the administration. I am so glad I went to Davis because I had great life experiences, made great friends and received a fantastic education. However, you are a small fish in a big pond and if something major happens during your education (in my case, the death of a parent), the administration is not supportive.
