      • Testimony
        1987-1990, Bachelor of Science (BS)

        My experience at UCDavis was full of great memories, starting in the summer of 1987, where I was able to get aquainted with the campus before my classes began. I really enjoyed the dorm and the biking lifestyle. I would do it again and recommend UCDavis for undergraduate studies!

      • Testimony
        2014-2015, Certified in Health Informatics

        I took a Health Informatics certification program with UC Davis online, and I was and am very happy. The professors and doctors are amazing and the program is amazing. I will be back this fall for more. I recommend them highly.

      • Testimony
        2004-2008, Bachelor of Arts

        The four years I spent at UC Davis helped shape me as a personal and as a professional. Freshman year, someone told me, "Davis is huge, but you'll probably know someone in every one of your classes." And having been involved in many activities, that became very true. UC Davis has so many opportunities for students to DO something--whether it's a club or volunteer gig or on-campus job--that you can find out what you love outside the classroom. In the classroom, learning is non-stop. Whether you're in an intro lecture at Chem 194 or a discussion session in the basement of Wellman, you can expect to be surrounded by incredibly intelligent instructors and dedicated students. People LOVE UC Davis because it's full of nice people, who are willing to say hello and get to know you, yet are driven and can buckle down to study and get ahead. The UC Davis experience was phenomenal for me. From running the ASUCD Entertainment Council, to being a sister of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi sorority, to serving on the Jewish Student Union board, to living in the dorms (woo Bixby Hall!), I loved every minute of it. Every time I meet a fellow alum, we are able to bond and share our Aggie experiences.

      • Testimony
