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 is a rigorous institution that holds its students to high standards, but the teachers generally care about their students success, even in large lecture classes. The dining commons is amazing and has options for vegan and gluten free students. The campus has a focus on being eco friendly, with nearly all student students owning bikes and there being an arboretum on campus.

    My sister is attending as a biology major at Davis. One thing she participated in that I really liked was the Davis Panhellenic Program. She got to 'rush' for 8 sororities all at once.

    mellow atmosphere that allows you to separate and mitigate a work, school, and social schedule easily. everything is local and withing walking distance - not even kidding. one of the better ucs for the price when it comes to national ranking.

    the quality of the professors and classes is amazing, but often the classes are so large that it is hard to get to know the professors and your classmates. unfortunately, the classes are also very impacted so not being able to get into the classes that you need does happen. however, the counselors are great at helping you figure out your schedule, and i overall loved my experience at u.c. davis.

    UC Davis's campus is absolutely beautiful! It is out in a rural part of the state, but the small town of Davis is so cute. I love the facilities provided for the students; the recreation center looks awesome.
