3rd largest UC in population, biggest in acreage. MORE BIKES THEN YOU WILL EVER SEE IN YOUR LIFE!
i got into davis, but i didn't go because i dont know how to ride a bike.
A four-year institution of higher learning located in California's Central Valley
. Currently ranked as the fourth best campus in the University of California
system. Davis has acquired a reputation as a bike-friendly campus and is often stereotyped as constantly smelling like cow shit (although this only true if it rains or unless you happen to live in the Tercero housing complex). The students at UC Davis are called Aggies, however the campus mascot is actually a mustang named Gunrock which has nothing to do with the title "Aggie". This leaves Davis students in the awkward predicament of having to explain to non-Davis individuals why their mascot is a horse and what the hell an Aggie is when the vast majority probably haven't a foggy damn. Davis is also perenially labeled as the "school for Berkeley rejects" and a common saying is that "Davis is no one's first choice." Despite this snobbish labeling of the campus by outsiders, Davis students have a reasonable amount of school spirit and school pride.
The academics in Davis are somewhat in line with the rest of the other UC's in that they are competitive, challenging, and that you can be assured that if you slack off, some super nerd
is going to set the exam curve at 98% therefore screwing you over. However unlike Berkeley, D...
UC Davis is an underrated university who currently holds the rank of the 42nd best University in the United States according to US News. It is ranked number 4 within the University of California system behind UCB, UCLA and UCSD. UC Davis currently is also ranked as the 3rd best veterinary school in the nation according to US News.
Damn, I hope I get into UC Davis' vet school!
A University completely underrated. UC Davis is often hated on by people who aren't smart enough to get in or by Cal Poly students. If any of those people had ever actually visited the college they would see how amazing it is and how diverse the people are. One thing all can agree on is that it does smell like cow shit often, but the top of the line academics and ridiculously intelligent student body (give or take a few athletes) surpass that smell.
Contrary to what some of the prior posts say, UC Davis is many peoples' first choice and many choose it over Cal because of the fact that you can walk around the town without getting harassed by a homeless person, and for its insane pre-vet and overall science programs.
UC Davis is often considered the fourth best UC, behind SD...but the only thing SD is known for is having zero school pride and terrible(D3) athletics.
Person 1: I go to UC Davis
Person 2: Oh so you have crazy competitive academics, superior faculty, amazing food, a sick campus, a bike waiting to be stolen, and way too much school spirit
Person 1: Pretty much...

I go to UC Davis. I got into UCLA. But Davis pwnz so I go there. UCLA and Cal still rox tho.
The worst UC in the entire UC system. A school for the socially retarded, stuck up rich kids, and students who weren't smart enough to get into UC Berkeley. Most of the students who go here can't think for themselves to save their lives, let alone are able to think critically. These whiney little lemmings waste their money on a school with unqualified professors, classes easy enough for middle school students, and a student government who cares more about Snoop Dogg than spending money where it's needed. A degree from this pretentious hippie school is laughable at best.
"UC Davis is great...if you're desperate..."
"I got into UC Davis but decided not to go since I have too much self-respect."
A UC that is ranked higher than it should be, in a city that smells like shit. It usually gets its ass handed to by Cal Poly in the Golden Horseshoe football game. Just another UC in the shadow of UCB and UCLA.
Welcome to UC Davis! A place for cow shit, asians, and bicycles.
