Student Org Tips

Tips for a Safe and Fun Picnic Day

It takes everyone’s support to make Picnic Day a safe and welcoming open house for all who visit UC Davis and the City of Davis that day.

All the information you need to have a great day can be found in the Schedule of Events, also available on Aggie Feed, and in resources provided on the Picnic Day website to get informed on how to do your part in making this Picnic Day as safe and welcoming as possible. Resources include a map of the safety enhancement zone and respective fines, and how to host a safe party.

Show your Aggie Pride, support of responsible fun on Picnic Day, and encourage your student org members to commit to and sign the Pledge.

To help ensure the safety of all participants, if you see something suspicious or unusual, please say something! Notify UC Davis Police and be prepared with the location and other critical information when calling.

We should all do our part to preserve this cherished tradition for Aggie generations to come! Have a fun and safe Picnic Day!

Adopt a Block and Earn Community Service Hours

The Adopt-a-Block program gives groups the opportunity to enhance the look of their community by beautifying and maintaining a street or section of a street within or surrounding UC Davis main campus.

Why does it matter? UC Davis joined the rest of the UCs in going Smoke and Tobacco Free on January 1, 2014. While we have high levels of compliance for the policy, this has had a spillover effect on our campus neighbors and several “hot spots” have formed on campus. Cigarette butts are the most littered item with over 4.5 million being discarded annually. Student volunteers picked up over 4300 cigarette butts on campus in just 2 hours in spring 2015!

Student orgs are encouraged to form teams, sign up, and help keep our campus community clean! Email kclift@ucdavis.edu to learn more and sign up.

A 10-bedroom, 4-bathroom house will be available to lease for the 2018-2019 school year. Only Registered Student Organizations qualify to apply, as the house is on campus. The process to apply and interview will start this coming fall, and the selected group will be notified and sign the lease during spring 2018. Email studenthousing@ucdavis.edu to add your name to the interest list to receive updates regarding the application process.
