Have fun, be safe and please oh please HANDLE YOUR SHIT.
There’s a straight up cow milking context going on on campus at the Quad today. The stereotypes are all true…it literally does not get any more Davis than this. 😍🐮🐃🍼🍦
I’m glad to hear that you are back. Thanks for your input.
Take a look at this page under “Other Musical Groups”
- Liquid Hotplates
- Lounge Lizards
- The Afterglow
- The Spokes
I’ve seen The Spokes perform. And they were so good. ♡_♡
Thanks for your input!
Yeah, it’s possible. And I’ve seen it happen before. As far as full-out flunking, I don’t think it happens often. At least, not in my experience here.
If you are getting bad grades, your GPA drops. If your GPA drops below a 2.000, you are put on academic probation. This is usually when people’s ears perk up like: “hey, maybe I should party a little less, and study a little more.” or “hey, maybe I should study harder and take better notes, and join a study group” or “hey, maybe this major/this course is not for me.”
The reason you got into this school is because you have the potential to succeed. But hey, shit happens. You got stuff going on in your life, and grades slip sometimes.
Picnic Day is not really geared to helping incoming students figure out what’s what. Most people who visit are not from Davis or a student, so I would suggest just having fun. There are a lot of student-run clubs and activities participating, so it might be useful to take a look at those and ask questions about which ones you are interested in. This is also a great day to get to know the layout of the campus and where all the halls are located.
But yeah, go nuts. Have fun with Davis before it sucks your soul out. ^_^
And GO TO THE DOXIE DERBY YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
Honestly, last year I did Picnic Day solo for a couple hours and still had a blast! I went to a bunch of booths and animal events. I didn’t get to attend the parade, which I recommend seeing! There are a lot of a hands-on things and shows to go to
- Doxie Derby
- Petting Zoo
- Chem Show
- Go milk a cow
- Get yourself a free plant
Lots to see!

I would think anything like Biology, NPB (Neurology, Physiology, & Behavior), Clinical Nutrition, heck even Animal Science, will do. (I know a few fellow Animal Scientists that have nursing as an option for them)
Here is a huge list of all the majors offered at Davis. Hope you choose us!
