It is a wonderful campus from the UC system. It is growing constantly and organically. It offers wonderful sights for visitors, from the Putah Creek to the Mondavi Center and from the ample quad to the gazebo

This place is huge but wonderful! If you like trees, plants and flowers, you’re in heaven. Of course, if you have allergies, you’re in hell! Terrific student tour guides give a great perspective to campus life and feel of the cozy college town. But, bring...More

We toured UC Davis after our daughter was accepted there as part of the Class of 2022. We enjoyed our time on campus. The setting is unique and quiet because it is removed from any metro area, yet it still has nice access to Sacramento...More

Area looks clean, well kept and welcoming to provide quality education. Location is great in the quiet town of Davis, which is close to Sacramento and not far from San Fran.

Perhaps it is the absence of cars and the amazing number of bikes, but this campus is quaint in an idyllic way. Students seem pretty relaxed and friendly.
