I was accepted to UC Davis for next fall. I sensed a very strong feeling of community when I visited the campus and that's exactly what I want.

I have visited UCD twice and loved it both times, it's a wide open campus, providing the perfect mesh of having enough space to breath and being busy. The campus is very flat, very easy to ride anywhere on campus, which most do, for those who like riding their bike, there are hundreds of bikes on campus! I am a transfer student with a year left at my current college, but I am definately applying to Davis. Not only do they offer my major, it is a major program there. Davis is full of friendly people, it is the only University I want to attend.
