If your looking for a great learning experience, there is something important that you have to know, it all depends on YOU. So if you are, the advice I would give you and stuff you've probably already heard is to get to know your professor, research beyond on stuff that you're unfamiliar with. These two suggestions make such a great difference in any school you might choose to go, and here at UC Davis, the professors are amazing. (TIP: go to ratemyprofessors.com to look at the prof's review, this really saves you from a dull class!)

    This school seems like a very awesome school to go to and I would love to go there. From the pictures that I've seen the campus looks really pretty and safe. The school has a lot of majors to choose from and also clubs which sounds fun.

    UCD is a peaceful place and everyone is friendly. The greek life is perfect; not too crazy but not too boring. The dining commons are absolutely delicious and the smoothies at the convenient stores are to die for!

    Davis is similar to Berkeley but with less stress academically. Students at Davis care about their grades and academics but also enjoy partying. It is the best of both worlds for those who want to attend a school that looks good on a resume but that isn't really uptight.

    UC Davis is extremely quirky, definitely one of the reasons it's rated the #1 Cool School among college students! It's extremely environmentally friendly and college-town-y with cows on campus, farmer's markets open weekly, and students biking literally everywhere. There is an amazingly positive vibe on campus with all the optimistic and happy students.

    UC Davis is a great place to learn, explore new interests, and meet extraordinary people. It has a beautiful agricultural campus, super environmental friendly, and not to mention the adorable (also extremely friendly-almost like dog friendly) cows. UC Davis is big on research opportunities and it has a lot of caring professors and staff. If you have not thought about UC Davis as one of your prospective universities to apply, you should consider it!

    UC Davis has been without a doubt the single greatest experience of my life. The town offers convenient transportation and caters to bicycles and the campus itself is absolutely beautiful, even after four years of attendance. There will never be transportation issues during the school year if you plan correctly.
