I love reading, playing video games and meeting new people.
In the context of your background and your time at 赌博排行前十网站, what makes you unique?
I would say that every student has a unique story at 赌博排行前十网站, 很简单，因为有太多事情要做. 赌博排行前十网站, I have gotten to know some incredible people and make memories that I will take with me forever. The different on-campus jobs I've had have given me a unique understanding of the behind-the-scenes of what goes on in the school, and I highly encourage people to get involved in that way. I also think that my roommates have made a huge impact on my college experience — we are all studying drastically different things (managerial economics, 全球疾病生物学, 计算机科学, animal science) but we have become such a strong group of friends, 我从他们每个人身上都学到了很多.
I chose 赌博排行前十网站 because it felt like a perfect college town. Even though the school's population is big (38,000 students) I never felt isolated or left behind. 校园很美, and I knew that this college would be a great place for me to stay focused on school while still cultivating my independence and growth. 我也知道我想留在加州, so 赌博排行前十网站 ended up being the best choice — and a choice I have never regretted.
我和我的朋友们喜欢在戴维斯附近吊床! 城里有很多自然景观值得探索, 尤其是在我们的在线学年, my roommates and I would watch lectures in our hammocks outside. 否则, I personally love to get coffee and go to the farmers market with my friends, 戴维斯的主食是什么.
I have worked with a few different departments on campus. I have worked for the 赌博排行前十网站 植物园 and Public Garden and the 赌博排行前十网站 Strategic Communications department. I have also served as a senator for ASUCD and worked in every part of the Tour Guide Program. I have done research in the Communication department under Dr. 迈克尔•卡特, and I have helped the Global Learning Hub work on web design for the study abroad program. I also worked as an intern for the on-campus thrift store, the Aggie Reuse Store.
就俱乐部而言, 我参加过几次摇摆舞聚会, 交际舞会议, 我加入了一段时间的帆船俱乐部! My friends and I also had an intramural soccer team last year (our team name was BOLT), 我还玩了内胎水球! 刚刚过去的这个夏天, 我是UCDC项目的一员, 我在华盛顿的史密森尼学会实习.C.! 这些都是我参与过的活动, there are still so many different things that my friends and classmates are a part of. 在赌博排行前十网站有很多事情要做.
What do you like about academics and student life here?
I like that you are able to truly curate your academic experience at 赌博排行前十网站. 即使在你的专业范围内, you are able to take classes that spark specific interests for you, whether you are studying political science or animal science. 就我个人而言，我的专业是传播, I have taken a lot of classes on media communication — but, I have peers who have taken classes in political communication, 卫生和通讯, 还有社交媒体. Regarding student life, there is always something going on on-campus, which I love! Your experience at 赌博排行前十网站 will ultimately be up to you, 但是拥有伟大的是如此重要, 你可以与之共度时光的可靠朋友. I feel like Davis has given me that a million times over.
In the classroom, I have found a lot of support academically. 尤其是在我的日语课上, it has been important to form study groups where I feel comfortable practicing with my peers to help one another out. This is something I highly recommend and is a great way to make friends!
赌博排行前十网站 has given me the space to become a better version of myself compared to when I began college as a freshman. I feel like I have deepened professional interests of mine as well as grown to be comfortable with who I am. A new experience I did not anticipate for myself was minoring in Japanese! It has been such a rewarding journey to study the language and explore the culture through my classes.
I feel as if 赌博排行前十网站 has provided me with the backbone of who I am and has helped cultivate my strengths. 赌博排行前十网站 and the network of people it has provided me with will continue to be something I can fall back on for support when I need it.
My goal is to explore different jobs in the realm of communications and see where my strengths and knowledge base take me. 我最终对娱乐工作感兴趣, and I hope to use my minor to help me work in Japanese/American localization when it comes to video games or television shows.
我到底有多喜欢奶牛! I know it is an overused stereotype of the school that we live in "cow town," but I actually feel so much comfort when I see them now — they really remind me of home.

你会玩得很开心的! Obviously, college is going to be what you make of it no matter where you go. 赌博排行前十网站 has been everything I wanted out of college and more, and coming to a school like this is a huge privilege and an amazing experience. My main advice is to just try everything — you may find a hidden interest or learn something unexpected about yourself. 祝你好运，并充分利用它!
