The Students

It’s rare to find a graduate program where academic rigor and a vibrant social life are not considered mutually exclusive. Yet, that’s exactly what you’ll find here at UC Davis. In fact,  the UCD Neuroscience Program prides itself on its strong sense of community. The academically collaborative atmosphere is simply a natural extension of the attitude which prevails in the program. Freedom of thought and creativity definitely extend beyond the labs here..but don’t take our word for it. Hear what the students have to say!

 

“UCD Neuroscience emphasizes community, teamwork, and collaboration within the entire student population and between the students and faculty members. The importance of these qualities was apparent the minute I stepped onto the campus during recruitment weekend.  No other school that I visited exuded such enthusiasm for maintaining a strong community as UCD did”. -Caitlin Kiley
