Four people in my immediate family attended UCD. This year, another child is attending U.C. Santa Cruz. The difference between Santa Cruz and UCD is like night and day. Santa Cruz seems to have everything together and UCD does not. The Administration at UCD acts like it does not care and the school moves forward based on past glories. UCD used to be a much better school than it is today.

This year, UCD enrolled 20% more freshman than they anticipated. There is no way the school will be able to handle the influx of new students. UCD simply does not have the management skills to prepare for the change. This is going to be a real mess.

The town of Davis has also changed - it used to be a peaceful college town. Now, according to police reports, gangs are taking over the comunity. Additionally, a large segment of the Davis population has an anti student bias. Many people, including landlords and stores, are out to take advantage of the student population. This is not the same town I knew 30 years ago.
