The graduation was held in the Mondavi Center and it was spectacular! We also walked through the nature trail back to our hotel and it was so quiet and serene. Beautiful campus but it's the end of our trail with UC Davis - we'll miss you!

Wonderful School. Very Large Campus. It has the best Vet Program/Animal Sciences in the Nation. The campus is surrounded by a nice community with many rentals for students and faculty. The resturants are numerous in the area and all types of foods can be found.

Price gouging, watch out they increase your rate everyday. No policies there, not quiet do not stay there! Bad management, liars.

While I had visited the place in 2013 before deciding to enroll my kid there, this time had a real look at the place and am happy that I took the decision to admit him here. Well spread out and peaceful, a walk by the stream is worth the walk !

I spent a weekend with my cousin in the dorms and everyone was very friendly. Some people I met there came to Costa Rica to visit too. I probably liked the fact that there was an old vertical piano in excellent shape just there so anyone could play. I couldn't help it, I spent some quality time there just playing... More

It is a beautiful campus in the most bicycle friendly city in America. People are cordial and friendly, with a great appreciation of the environment.

Great college town with a lot of nature. Kids loved chasing squirrels around. Be aware of the bike riders.

Largest by acreage---By far! Largest by number of undergraduate students---Yes. We passed UCLA a couple of years ago. The only Vet School in the system. LOTS of trees, grass, open space. Occasional sculpture. A new museum under construction. What's not to like? Parking costs $9. Everything else is free.

I love walking or biking through campus. There are wide pathways connecting the buildings. Tall, leafy trees to block the sun on hot days and egg sculptures throughout. Make sure you wear a helmet if you're biking. Some of the students are not good bikers! (especially in the fall when the freshmen arrive).

A nice, big campus, very green, clean, modern and organized with a relaxed atmosphere and many bicycles parked everywhere. Parking it's not permitted in many areas of the campus so visitors are requested to drop the car at one of the parking garages. Be ready for a nice walk (comfortable shoes are reccomended) or get a bus in the campus.... More
