Experience Davis!

United States West Davis

Driven to keep the Golden State golden, Davis locals have an innate commitment to the planet and sustainability—this is one ecologically friendly city, and the UC Davis campus—the leading agricultural school—generates its own power and has a home-invented biodigester turning waste into energy. Beyond its planet-forward existence, Davis is a classic college town in California's Central Valley, with leafy streets and colonial-style houses for students and faculty.

Where Will You Live

University of California, Davis

Established in 1908, University of California, Davis, started life as the university farm, rolling up its flannel shirtsleeves to provide research- and science-based instruction to the nation’s farmers. 

On the lush California campus just outside the state capital, Sacramento, that ethos of putting the earth first continues. Health, wellbeing, and sustainability still forges the uniquely Aggie lifestyle. The Aggie Pack is the largest student-run university spirit organization in the country, and that all-out pride in community and mutual support focuses its energy on making the world a better place.
