Perhaps it is the absence of cars and the amazing number of bikes, but this campus is quaint in an idyllic way. Students seem pretty relaxed and friendly.

The campus is large in size but completely flat so walking is easy. There is a mix of old and new, modern and traditional architecture, public art displayed throughout, and lots of friendly students who will say "hi" as you walk by. The attractiveness of the campus accompanies the first-rate academic and artistic programs offered, and the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts is as first-rate a concert hall that you would find anywhere in the world. A terrific place to spend the day, and an enriching university for those seeking post-secondary education opportunities.

All year around you can enjoy the beauty of the landscaping and the well worn paths and bridges that take you around and over the creek. I love to watch the ducks and turtles and other wildlife that inhabit this area.
For entertainment there is the new Shrem Museum of Art and of course the fantastic Mondavi Center.
Always plenty to do and discover on this campus.

Arrived here in August of this year and did not regret having to leave my home country and to spend ten months at Davis. There is always something happening on campus and the programs for international students with the Global Affairs office are so interesting and you will feel right at home. The campus has this creek running along side it with beautiful landscape and natural atmosphere. Just adore it. Fall is my favourite season to explore campus and just walk along the aboretum. There are coffee places all over campus and just a friendly vibe all around. Great for international students who want to study abroad and it is a family and pet friendly campus.
