We first opened our doors in 1908 as the University Farm, the research and science-based instruction extension of UC Berkeley. As the century evolved, our mission expanded beyond agriculture to match a larger understanding of how we should be serving the public. By 1959, UC Davis had grown into a general campus with its own personality and strengths.
Our 104 undergraduate majors and 96 graduate programs offer you the breadth and depth of opportunity to get an excellent education at one of the best public universities in the nation.

Davis is a very large campus but still felt like a tight community and had great resources for students both socially and academically.
It was memorable experience. UC Davis is very nature friendly and its huge. It could be over whelming sometimes. There was lot to learn but I couldn't because it was my first time abroad. I was shy and not very outgoing. So, I missed it.
