106th Pajamarino Homecoming Pep Rally

Friday, October 12  | UC Davis Vanderhoef Quad --> Downtown Davis

In 1912, pajama-clad students first sneaked out of their resident halls to greet returning alumni at the train station the night before homecoming. Alumni, students and the Davis community are invited to join the Student Alumni Association as they continue the tradition at our annual Pajamarino celebration. This year we are excited to be partnering with the Davis Chamber of Commerce on their Discover Davis celebration.  See a video of our 100th Pajamarino celebration.
