Sharon and Dan Davis

Although Sharon and Dan Davis had visited UC Davis before, it wasn’t until they toured with their daughter Ellen ’16 that they really fell in love with the university. Ellen felt a sense of community and belonging almost immediately, and since then, the Davis family has been discovering more about UC Davis every year. Now, they look for excuses to visit the area so they can spend more time on campus.

“In a way, we’re ambassadors for the school,” said Sharon. “We interact with young people a lot, and we’re always quick to recommend UC Davis.”
