UC Davis

UC Davis is one of the top public research universities in the world and offers undergraduates highly ranked academics, unparalleled research and internship opportunities, and an active student life in a welcoming, friendly, college town environment.

Our staff and students are solving big problems and shaping the future—but that’s far from the only reason to come.

Davis is a college town, with a friendly, laidback feel that is quintessential California. You’ll find 35,000 thinkers, dreamers, and change-makers studying over 100 majors here. Academic excellence waits around every corner (and with 5,300 acres, there are plenty of corners).

We’re proud of our 100-year history, and our academic reputation. If you want to get specific, we’re number one in the world for veterinary medicine and agriculture. And we place a major emphasis on women in STEM subjects.

Oh, and you might not have heard of Aggie Pride yet—but you will soon.
