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 to look at the prof's review, this really saves you from a dull class!)

    UC Davis smells like cows sometimes, but the people are friendly, the campus is beautiful, and the professors really care about the success of their students. UC Davis takes pride in managing wildlife on and around campus, which many people may or may not know. UC Davis funds the many resources available to students and it is imperative that all students take advantage of this availability.

    Davis is basically a city disguised as a town. The overall atmosphere you get is great and the people here are really friendly. The university itself excels in many areas and offers a lot of experiences and opportunities for its students.

    UCD is one of the best schools in the country, with top rate professors, lecturers, and even some A+ TAs. The campus is beautiful, downtown is close, and Sacramento is a free bus ride away. All in all, attending Davis has been the best decision of my entire life.

    In a fast pace quarter system it's easy to fall apart, UCD is very well organized and everything is easy to obtain. They want you to graduate, this campus is large and friendly, you get use to the bikers flying by!

    The school itself has wonderful education programs, and gives students leeway to be able to incorporate different classes they want to take into their specific major. Classes, however, are HUGE (two of mine as a junior are over 400 people), and although the professors I have had for the sciences are superb, time to ask specific questions and get individual help is limited. The town itself is beautiful and cute, with many fun and affordable places to eat, and there are always parties to go to or a few all-ages bars that have fun dancing and other events.
