History

In 1905, Governor George Pardee signed into law an act to establish a university farm school for the University of California. It would be more than a year before that commission selected a tiny town, then known as Davisville as the site. What was to become the third UC Campus opened its doors to 40 degree students (all male) from UC Berkeley in January 1909 as the "University Farm." (The farm had begun accepting non-degree farmers' short courses in October of 1908; there were initially around 115 such attendees.) The establishment of the Farm was largely the result of the vision and perseverance of Peter J. Shields, secretary of the State Agricultural Society, and the namesake of UC Davis's Peter J. Shields Library. He began to champion the cause of a University Farm to teach agriculture in a more applied fashion after hearing about California students who chose to go to out-of-state universities due to the lack of such programs in the University of California at that time. He later stated: George Cooper Pardee (July 25, 1857–September 1, 1941) was a medical doctor and was known as the Earthquake Governor of California, holding office from January 6, 1903 to January 8, 1907. ... The University of California, Berkeley (also known as Cal, UC Berkeley, UCB, or simply Berkeley) is a prestigious, public, coeducational university situated in the foothills of Berkeley, California to the east of San Francisco Bay, overlooking the Golden Gate and its bridge. ...

Peter J. Shields (1862 - September 28, 1962) is best known for his contributions leading to the establishment of the University of California, Davis, beginning in 1908 as the University Farm. ...


"There was a College of Agriculture at Berkeley in connection with the University of California, but it was purely academic. It was largely confined to the study of botany and chemistry; it had no farm and little prestige; it was apt to be thought of as a snap curriculum, attracting students who wanted to go to college but wanted to avoid its more difficult work."


After two failed bills, a law authorizing the creation of a University Farm was passed in March 18 1905, and Yolo County, home to some of California's prime farmland, was chosen as the site. The Farm accepted its first female students in 1914 from Berkeley. Renamed in 1922 the Northern Branch of the College of Agriculture, it continued growing at a breakneck pace: in 1916 the Farm's 314 students occupied the original 778 acre (3 km²) campus, but by 1951 it had already expanded to a size of 3,000 acres (12 km²). In 1959, the campus was declared by the Regents of the University of California as the seventh general campus in the University of California system. It has since grown into a vibrant and politically active campus. Yolo County is located in the northern part of the U.S. state of California, bordered by the counties of Sacramento, Solano, Napa, Lake, Colusa, and Sutter. ...

These and other achievements motivated a decision (following a year of heavy discussion by campus administrators, faculty, staff, students, alumni and the local community) in 2003 for the athletics program to re-classify to Division I.[12] [13] The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA, often pronounced N-C-Double-A or N-C-Two-A ) is a voluntary association of about 1,200 institutions, conferences, organizations and individuals that organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States. ...

for Alma Mater true.
Sac State's men will soon be routed,
by our dazzling C.
We'll stomp 'em in the mud,
their green will turn to blood,
in our hour of victory!

Hail to California - The UC Alma Mater.
Composer: Clinton Morse
Arrangement: Charles Cushing

Hail to California, Alma Mater dear.
Sing the joyful chorus, sound it far and near.
Rally 'round her banner, we will never fail.
California, Alma Mater,
Hail! Hail! Hail!

Fraternities and sororities provide a small group living experience that enhances the co-curricular life of every Greek student through academic, social, educational, leadership, and community service activities.

Transportation

UC Davis is famous for its large number of bicycles and bicyclists. The city of Davis boasts the highest bikes per capita of any U.S. city. Bicyclists are ubiquitous around campus as well as the city, and thus a lot of bike-only infrastructure exists, such as bike circles, large bike lanes, and traffic signals exclusively for bikes. The police department also has some of its officers patrol on bicycles. Furthermore, the police take bicycling under the influence ("BUI") and bicycling without a headlight at night very seriously, both of which are punishable by a traffic ticket. All bikes on the UC Davis campus must be registered with a California Bicycle license. Motto: (Out Of Many, One) (traditional) In God We Trust (1956 to date) Anthem: The Star-Spangled Banner Capital Washington D.C.

UC Davis is also well known for its bus service, Unitrans, and their trademark London double decker buses. It has been in operation since 1968 and is believed to be the only general purpose (non-sightseeing) transit system in the U.S. to operate vintage double deck buses in daily service. The system is operated and managed entirely by students and offers fixed-route transportation throughout the city. There is also an inter-campus bus service that ferries back and forth between UC Davis and UC Berkeley twice daily, from Monday to Friday. For other uses, see Bus (disambiguation). ...

UC Davis is bounded by freeways on two sides (Highway 113 and Interstate 80). All other UC campuses are either somewhat distant from the closest freeway or are directly adjacent to only one freeway. Two freeway exits are entirely within UCD's boundaries. One, off Highway 113, is signed "UC Davis / Hutchison Drive" and the other, off Interstate 80, is signed exclusively as "UC Davis." Interstate 80 (abbreviated I-80) is the second-longest Interstate Highway in the United States. ...


Easy freeway access, coupled with increasing housing costs in the city of Davis, have led to increased numbers of students commuting via automobile. Some students choose to live in the neighboring communities of Sacramento, Dixon or Woodland, and use their own cars or the county-wide Yolobus to get to UC Davis. Sacramento is the county seat of Sacramento County, California and the capital of the U.S. state of California. ... Dixon is a city located nearly 30 miles from Sacramento, California, in Solano County. ... Woodland is the county seat of Yolo County, California. ...
