As we approach the end of the school year, UC Davis offers many engaging events for students to start spring quarter with a bang. Students have the opportunity to network with professionals and employers to solidify their professional future — and can join in on some engaging activities to take the stress off of school work. 

Have you ever wanted to attend a TED talk? Are you ready to immerse yourself in enriching conversations relevant to UC Davis students and everyone worldwide? Now’s your chance! On April 13, TEDX: WholehearTED talk includes performances, networking and professional development. There will be three performers and seven speakers, and the topics range from self-directed learning to the history of female sexuality. The talk will happen from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in California Hall, and the tickets are available on @tedxucdavis. 

The 49th Annual UC Davis Powwow is going to be happening on April 13 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Quad. 

Powwow, as practiced today, is a social gathering intended to provide the campus and local community a space to learn about, engage with and celebrate the traditions and cultures of Indigenous peoples to bring visibility to the vibrancy of Native American music, dance and arts,” the UC Davis website states. 

The UC Davis Annual Powwow is student-run and student-planned, and it is an event that hosts vendors, drum groups and dancers from all over California. This event will allow the Native community to build connections and address the issues Indigenous people face today. 

The Spring Career Fair will happen on Wednesday, April 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the University Credit Union Center. The fair catalyzes students’ professional careers where they will explore various fields and solidify their job search. Employers can connect with UC Davis students and alumni — and it allows students to learn more about the open internships and full-time jobs. 

Students should attend the fair if they’re interested in learning more about the opportunities available to them. Whether you’re getting ready to graduate or are just starting your journey at UC Davis, the Internship and Career Center and Handshake facilitate the connection between students and employers. 

Picnic Day is happening on April 20 and is just around the corner! With over 200 events to choose from, people come to UC Davis from all over California to join in on this tradition. Whether you’re going to see the parade, the science show or hoping to meet some furry friends, Picnic Day promises that your day will be packed with a whirlwind of events. There will also be a career fair to connect with companies and widen your career scope. 

UC Davis students can join in on the exciting lineup of events happening this month. Networking with professionals and connecting with the community is crucial to the college experience — so don’t miss out on these opportunities!
