I love the campus at UC Davis. The architecture is eclectic and some of it rather ugly. However, it is spacious and in the future the whole campus will be an arboretum. The new Mondavi Food and Wine institute is stunning, as is the Mondavi Center for cultural activities. There are many buildings with art displays and soon we will... More

Back after years away last summer I had a wonderful chance to relive the magic of the UCD campus ... from the Arboretum to the Student Union to the athletic fields to the bike infrastructure ... to the Farmer's Market ... a really nice place close to Sacramento ... wonderful.

While I'm glad they support bikes, if you need to move large items it's horrendous. For example string bass. University is on the payroll of big aggie and thus supports bad science.

Nice enough campus to walk around for a bit. Mondavi Center looks pretty nice. Bookstore is pretty big and main cafeteria was busy with lots of food options

Try the Bohart Insect Museum, Mondavi Center, the UCD bookstore, the Arboretum, and Picnic Day or the Whole Earth Festival on Mothers' Day weekend!

UC Davis has a very pretty campus, with both older buildings from its beginning as the "Ag Campus" for UC Berkeley, and newer buildings as it's grown. I would recommend coming for either Picnic Day, a more traditional family event in April, or the Whole Earth Festival, an artistic and musical honoring of the Earth on the Mother's Day weekend...

UC-Davis is an awesome and under-rated UC campus. Academically and environmentally it is one of the finest universities in the world. it is also great for bicycling, running, and soccer. Davis is the capital of soccer in California. Youth and adult leagues are available year round. The downtown area is low-key and perfectly adequate for a small town. Nearby entertainment... More

This is a wonderful place to go if you are into bicycling. The campus is huge and there are bikes everywhere! There are some coffee shops on campus and plenty of places to sit and people watch.

This is a Very nice campus! I have heard so many positive things about this campus. But it could take forever to visit especially if you don't have a bike or car
