I have been to most if not all of the U.C. campises, but this one impressed me the least. It's not dreadful, don't get me wrong, but it was very low key. On the other hand, it does produce great winemakers.

It is a wonderful campus from the UC system. It is growing constantly and organically. It offers wonderful sights for visitors, from the Putah Creek to the Mondavi Center and from the ample quad to the gazebo

This place is huge but wonderful! If you like trees, plants and flowers, you’re in heaven. Of course, if you have allergies, you’re in hell! Terrific student tour guides give a great perspective to campus life and feel of the cozy college town. But, bring...More
