Being here UC Davis has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I feel so lucky to learn in a different part of the world and be a part of this. As a newcomer to the UC Davis community, I can tell you firsthand what a warm welcoming place this is. Life here on campus is idyllic. It’s a place where ideas are shared, knowledge is passed, and students can feel safe to be who they are. We’re proud of our partnership with the City of Davis in creating one of the most desirable college towns in America. The City of Davis prides itself in being a diverse community that’s home for locals, visiting scholars and guests from around the world. Our small downtown is filled with restaurants, cafes and stores just steps away from the UC Davis campus. Having access to first class research facilities here at UC Davis and working alongside some of the best in my field Has been invaluable for me as an international scholar. I’ve also enjoyed the small-town feel of Davis combined with our values of Collaboration, diversity and sustainability within a relaxed California atmosphere. It really makes any scholar determined to push the research boundaries for a better world. It’s all of our responsibility to protect this special community here in Davis and we take that job seriously. But more than that, we see ourselves as part of one big family That’s respectful, supportive and welcoming to all. We’re proud that UC Davis is home of thousands of international students and scholars. Having variety of different Perspectives, dialogues and knowledge across our community truly benefits us all. And prepares our students to be successful In this interconnected world. Here at UC Davis, Global Affairs is a valuable community resource for the diversity of Cultural, educational and social activities. We hope to see you here.
