1) I’ll miss the energy of the campus … the passion people here have for the things they do.
Samantha Ponce, genetics
2) The people – I’ve made a lot of good friends here, and the professors have helped me with letters of recommendation for grad school.
Nimra Suhail, psychology
3) Basically, I’m going to miss the free time to hang out with friends. And just learning from classes – taking random classes that interest me instead of doing a job every day.
Daniel Rodriguez, civil engineering
4) What I’ll miss most is the sheer diversity of this campus – you’re able to meet people from all different walks of life, people who come from different backgrounds, all with different ambitions.
Justin Nguyen, international relations
5) I think what I’ll miss most is knowing that in the morning when I wake up, I’ll have a pretty eventful day with my classes. There is never a dull moment; my classes [have been] interesting and thought-provoking.
Sarah Spurlock, political science
6) I would have to say what I’ll miss most is the people here. Everybody is so friendly; the professors, I feel like I can reach out to them. And I think another thing I’ll miss about UC Davis is that the ambience is so chill and relaxed. One last thing – I’ll miss seeing the bike accidents.
Bianca Jimenez, economics
7) I’m going to miss the community feel of Davis – being able to walk and bike everywhere. [I’ll miss] feeling safe, the big trees, the arboretum, the overall landscape of Davis and walking to the Farmers Market.
Jessica Olson, environmental horticulture and urban forestry
8) I’ll miss the events on campus – Whole Earth Festival, the student-organized events … like the Coho shows. I work at the Coffee House – I’m definitely going to miss that.
Jesse Fineman, English and linguistics
