Students enjoy a wide variety of activities in Davis, from hanging out with friends at an outdoor cafeé to joining other UC Davis students for campus lectures or recreational activities. They can work out at the state-of-the-art fitness center at the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC), create works of art at the Craft Center, and join the Experimental College and other organizations for a diverse range of activities.
On campus and in town, students enjoy rock-climbing, dancing, bicycling, golf, tennis, racquetball, jogging, hiking, swimming at the campus pool, aerobics classes, weight training, martial arts, bowling, and more. In the evening, the campus and surrounding region provide opportunities to go dancing and attend musical performances, movies and sporting events such as UC Davis and professional basketball, football, baseball and soccer games.
The Bay Area and Napa are close by, as is the very accessible Sacramento International Airport.
