UC Davis Is the #8 Public University in the Nation!

Someone call up the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh and have them do a cheer! U.S. News and World Report has just released their annual college rankings, and UC Davis (along with four other UC campuses) is ranked among the Top 10 public schools!

USNWR uses several criteria when ranking schools, but one of the things that sets us apart is our academic diversity:

UC Davis offers a wide range of academic options within its undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools and colleges. Among the school’s graduate programs are the highly ranked Graduate School of ManagementSchool of LawSchool of MedicineCollege of Engineering, and School of Veterinary Medicine. Other notable programs include the School of Education and the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing. Undergraduates can study in the College of Letters and Science, College of Engineering, College of Biological Sciences, or College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. The UC Davis Arboretum, technically a public park, encompasses 100 acres of gardens that stretch along a waterway.
