Overview

UC Davis, set in a small traditional college town, is justly famous for its outstanding programs in the biological and agricultural sciences. In addition, its programs in engineering, the social sciences, physical sciences, mathematics, and the arts and humanities are also popular and prestigious.

UC Davis programs attract highly qualified students from diverse educational, social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. It is this global mix that contributes to the character of both the campus and the city of Davis. The campus has a tradition of close association between students and faculty, and the style is one of informality and congeniality.

The 5300-acre campus includes experimental agriculture plots, a central quad, hundreds of beautiful old shade trees, and an arboretum on the banks of Putah Creek running through the southern side of the campus. UC Davis hosts numerous musical and theatrical presentations, lectures, and films. Architecturally, the campus has a mix of the old wooden buildings remaining from the University Farm days, the modern glass fronted library, and traditional brick and concrete facilities. Cycling is the preferred mode of transportation both on the campus and in the city of Davis.
