I'm a UC Davis graduate with a bachelors in English and over 40 units in Math and Science including Upper division Non-Avian Herpetology (ecology and Squamata emphasis) I have owned reptiles, fish, and other animals all my life. After moving out on my own, I decided I needed a pet; and fish were the most reasonable. I started out with a betta and my old kit (a pint hexagon) from years gone by. I have since got a one gallon filtered tank, and currently I'm breaking in a 15 gal(US) long 24 x 12 x 12. I see this as a way to indulge in my loves of Chemistry, Ecology, and Research. I like the challenge of trying to achieve and maintain a nice looking fish tank. Of my fish, I've named 3.... I'm not really into personalizing them.... Just making them good looking and keeping them in optimal conditions.....
Hi, I have a friend who is currently going to UC Davis for Ornithology, and another who was going to be a doctor but has changed her focus to lab work and creating new medications. They both love it :D
It was an interesting experience for a kid that went through 12 years of parochial school, made up of what many would consider, "A bunch of rich kids," and from the Central Valley, ala Clovis/Fresno, CA. Let's just say, I had some good times, but there is a reason I got my BA in 2 years. The politics of Davis and Me, just never seemed to totally agree, at least at the time. I have wonderful memories of UC Davis too though!
ooo rent is cheaper down their XD I'm going to the academy of art in SF and commute on the train from San Jose where I live with my parents. Once I graduate and get a job so I can afford a place I really don't want to pay a arm and a leg to stay in this area lol
Welcome from a fellow forum newbie! I grew up in the more rural/practically Folsom end of Granite Bay, CA & lived in Roseville for 3 years before moving out here to GA. I've got a bunch of friends who went to or are currently finishing up at Davis! Nice to hear so many places I know of being talked about. :)
Man, I grew up in FRESNO/Clovis. I only went to SCHOOL in Davis. 2 years at that! Yeah I took a heavy course load and rushed things once I transferred. Glad I did too because right as I got out, tuition jumped BIG TIME.
