a current student here
Obviously, it's not free to attend a college of this ranking. Though it might cost some of you a lot to come here, it's something that will be worth it. Not only are our professors amazing at what they are researching and teaching, they're willing to help you out through your courses and even help you obtain undergraduate research positions. You have a bunch of options for internships and volunteer opportunities (for example, premed students have access to a bunch of internships offered by the UC Davis Medical Center), and the Internship and Career Center bring over 850 companies to campus each year to help you find an internship or career after college. There are endless resources here and counselors who are willing to help you along the way. And of course the school will put up a bunch of activities for you. Not only do you get free entrance into all of the sports games played at home and free access to the gym, but there are also a huge amount of events that happen throughout the year, notably Picnic Day, which is one of the largest student-run events in the nation! You'll get a bunch of free t-shirts wherever you look.
