Student Stories

At UC Davis, we travel on bikes and live in domes. We race dachshunds. We nap in hammocks and study next to Eggheads. We parade in our pajamas and are one of the top universities in the country. We celebrate individual expression and still make everyone feel like they are part of the Aggie family.

We in the Division of Student Affairs love to hear about how UC Davis students discover more about themselves during their time at UC Davis and find

their place in the UC Davis community.

With that in mind, we invite you to share your story with us. We are looking for first-person stories, 500–800 words in length, that detail one specific aspect of the UC Davis student experience that made a difference in your life.

Selected stories will be featured on the Division of Student Affairs website and possibly other communication channels throughout the university (with the express consent of the student.)

Each shared story helps create a richer picture of life at UC Davis and inspires the campus community, so thank you in advance for sharing your story with us!
