Great school with many different opportunities but needs to help students more financially. Too expensive.
I enjoyed the learning environment at UC Davis. The teachers are kind and passionate about their work. They want to help you succeed and are very open to questions.
UC Davis offers students everything they need and more to accomplish their academic and life goals. The faculty here are extremely accommodating and work to ensure student success. Take for example the recent movement to stop tuition hikes. Teachers worked side by side with student advocates and even acted on their own to ensure students were heard and taken seriously. Ask anyone who goes to Davis or has spoken to a current/former student, the focus here is on the students and it shows.
UC Davis has given me an amazing college experience so far! From the atmosphere of the campus, to the opportunities and experiences I've been able to have, it has challenged me and helped me grow so much as a person and as a student.
I have enjoyed my time there but there system is twisted at times. It favors the professors more than the students.
UC Davis is an amazing university. I came to America two years ago and I had no confidence that a university would accept me, but out of nowhere UCD actually accepted me and I was really excited and surprised by that. I’m not going to disappoint them, so I will work hard.
I really enjoy attending UC Davis, especially because I am on the premedical pathway and this institution provides tremendous opportunities to succeed in my career. I would like to see more transparency and readily available information about these opportunity. As many as there are, many students are not aware of it unless they go speak to a counselor.
The scenery was very pretty. The professors were okay, some were capable and wanted to hep but others seemed to not want to be there.
UC Davis is such a unique school in that you feel so close with your peers as though you are in a small community with everything feeling so local; yet, you are also attending a dense high achieving university. It welcomes you with open arms and has a place for every student to find their niche, but can also be overwhelming in how many resources there are that you are responsible for seeking out. A great location to establish independence and self growth; however also a place you will find yourself the most challenged and pushed to your limits academically. This is such a wonderful place to be as long as you are willing to step out of your comfort zone and work for your desires!
UC Davis is a welcoming and inclusive community that tailors to the needs of a myriad of diverse cultures and communities. The professors and staff employed by UC Davis truly care about the well-being of students and the success of their futures.
I enjoyed the beautiful campus and the variety of different clubs. As a CS major, I do wish there was a bigger CS staff, but so far most of the teachers have been pretty decent and it hasn't been too hard to get the classes I wanted. Granted, I did have additional college units before I attended Davis (making me a sophomore in my freshman year), and older years are given priority. So, keep this in mind that my experiences may be different from the average freshman. The dorm food was pretty good, most American or other fried foods (like fried noodle). I would say that they're a little limited in terms of healthy options when compared to the number of desserts offered (ice cream, brownies, cheesecake, donuts, etc).
It's a very nice school with a lot of stuff to do and social events. There are always ways to meet new people and make new friends.
My favorite thing about UC Davis is the people. When I first entered the dorms, a lot of people I met were approachable and kind. They are willing to help each other out even though they may not know each other.
When I toured UC everything seemed al’s not surreal. Although I haven’t experienced classes or professors. I believe I will be a great fit.
I will be starting at Davis next month. I went to visit for Aggie Day and I loved how big the campus is. I was given a small tour, and all the people I met along that tour were super nice.
So far I am involved in the STEP Program at UC Davis for first generation college students which has opened many doors for me already I am already taking preparation courses along with giving me the opportunities that I never knew I would be able to get. The STEP Program is the reason why I chose UC Davis as my school of choice.
Although I have not yet started my academic journey at UC Davis, I am very excited for the fall and to gain more experience as a college freshmen!
