Economics is a great opportunity and I suggest anyone who is at UC Davis to at least take one introduction to Economics course (1A/1B). UC Davis is a big school and difficult to get to know people unless you really put yourself out there and talk to other people; even more so on top of the Economics degree popularity. Really nice small college town/campus that you'll get familiar with quick and the friendliest people ever.
I enjoyed my time at UC Davis which was an environment where I felt like I could thrive and learn. Academically, I felt challenged by the learning environment with professors that knew their material and were passionate about it. The town was the ideal college town with everything within a short bike ride. Davis is a environmentally progressive town, and you get the feeling that you are truly in a cutting edge town and college.
UC Davis is one of the most diverse and inclusive universities. It is a safe space for individuals from all sorts of backgrounds and religions and ethnicities not only within the classroom but also outside of it. The professors are very sensitive to each students individual needs and the student body is very welcoming no matter how many questions one might have. The campus is also beautiful and full of greenery; we take pride in our beautiful Arboretum, which is the ideal place for students to relax their minds and bodies at. UC Davis knows that life can be tiring at times or too fast-paced at times, so the parks and the Arboretum and the little downtown is a small gateway to finding inner peace and a moment of happiness.
UC Davis was a great school for me to attend as an undergrad. As Davis, I felt safe, intellectually engaged, and involved. I had excellent TA's as well as lecturers and professors. I met life-long friends and was very well-prepared for my current career as a Spanish Teacher and International Program Director.
I enjoyed my undergraduate experience at UC Davis for the most part. College (and life in general) is definitely what you make of it. There are no professors or TAs who will hold your hand and drag you to learn, but they do give you all the resources needed for students to succeed and understand the material. Davis in particular was an amazing school because it's the definition of a college town, where everything is centered around the students and the campus community. There are numerous clubs and associations on campus in order to help students feel welcomed. There are also great networking events for a variety of fields for those who are interested in business, law, or tech.
I absolutely loved going to school at UC Davis. While Sociology is not necessarily a degree that will ensure a direct job immediately upon graduating, I was able to find work in my field. I had fantastic professors, a wonderful school department, and an overall incredible experience.
The University of Dallas is a fantastic place to get a liberal arts education. I can't recommend it enough. Small class size allows for great teacher-student interaction, and the professors are knowledgeable and ready to help. The English degree, in particular, is a strong degree. Go here for the classic literature, comprehensive education, and small classes.
UC Davis has a variety of fun clubs to join, including niche interests like zombie hunting and origami folding. The on-campus career center offers great resources for interview preparation and resume building, with tons of helpful workshops every day to help prepare students for life after college. Despite Davis having a "small town" feel, there is always exciting events happening, like music festivals, farmer's markets, and fun runs. Davis also has a great collection of restaurants, with Burgers & Brew being the must-visit eatery. Coursework is rigorous and thorough; your professors will guarantee you know the material inside and out. Teacher's assistants are extremely helpful and professors are always readily available during office hours. The general atmosphere of the campus is friendly, and you absolutely must have a bike to get around!
In my opinion, I attended the best university in the U.S.! We have so many high ranking degree programs, in addition to our diverse and enriching community, UCD has everything an incoming student would love to have at their university and more. Bikes, cows, and unique perspectives add to make UCD a phenomenal place to receive an education!
Davis is an awesome place. You are sure to find your people here. There are so many welcoming people here. The campus is really supportive of you and what you want to get done. Through education classes here, I decided to diverge from the engineering path and pursue the career to become a teacher.
