Overall Rating

Go to classes. Take the interesting ones. Not the ones you think will be "good for your major." Sit out in the quad. Go to every football and basketball game. Live in a dorm. Don't charge Dominos to your OneCard. Don't let people studying in Davis stress you out. Find your own place to study. Party.
