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

Area looks clean, well kept and welcoming to provide quality education. Location is great in the quiet town of Davis, which is close to Sacramento and not far from San Fran.
