Student & Graduate Reviews (59)
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.
I absolutely loved my time at UC Davis. I met a diverse group of people who became my closest friends that I still see often, I learned a lot from my Sociology and Women's Studies professors, and I firmly believe I had a space to call my own at Davis.
UC Davis is a great university. The people are very friendly and there are a lot great opportunities available on campus. It easy to find some way to become involved and be passionate about something you find on campus. Classes are kind of large, but with the help of other classmates, you will succeed.
UC Davis consumes the small northern California college town situated in the middle of the agricultural valley. Those looking for a home away from home will quickly find themselves comfortably navigating the flat roads of Davis by bicycle, surrounded by dozens of other students turned cyclists. It is a suburbia utopia, filled with kind, educated people, a charming downtown area, and most importantly, a passionate and respectful student body. Although I felt terribly lost as a first year, overtime I learned that at UC Davis, you have the freedom to construct your education. There is a great diversity of interests composing the Aggie campus, and success is possible with the support of invested faculty and dedicated peers. There is a real sense of community, but as a Latinx, I found it especially within multi-cultural student organizations and classes. I recall someone telling me that college is what you make of it, and they were right. UC Davis offers all an opportunity invest themselves in their passions, through its programs, student organizations, and events. I was extremely privileged to have studied at such a prestigious institution, where my experience was intellectually satisfying, to say the least. Rest assured that you will receive a top-quality and memorable education.
