From the Arboretum to Aggie Stadium, our campus bursts with gorgeous scenery all year long. Here are 10 places on campus where you must snap a photo for Instagram.
1. The Arboretum
Hands down, the Arboretum is one of everyone’s favorite places to snap photos on campus. You kinda can’t help but fall in love with nature here.
Plus, the fog makes everything 10x more awesome in winter.
2. Shields Library
It’s not hard to catch the occasional Instagrammer snapping photos of our main reading room or grand staircase.
If you ask us, the courtyard is also pretty cool.
Especially if you’re into taking breaks in quiet places, tbh.
3. The Water Towers
4. The UC Davis Seal + Signs
It’s pretty much a rite of passage for all Aggies to take a picture with a campus landmark before graduating. Students like to pose with the official seal in the Memorial Union and other campus signs and landmarks.
Even pets can’t resist taking a #selfie with the signs!
Now this is a true squad goal.
5. The Double-Decker Buses
If you’ve got wanderlust, riding one of these buses just might do the trick.
You can get another slice of London in this phone booth.
… Or just grab your friends and recreate One Direction’s album cover. Your choice.
6. West Village
A zero net energy community and the backdrop to some epic Instagram shots.
7. The Campus Cows
If this isn’t on your UC Davis bucket list… you should add it. Like, right now.
8. The Death Star
Aka the Social Sciences and Humanities building. Getting lost in here doesn’t have to be such a bad thing if it leads to cool sights… right?
9. Residence Halls
We wheely love this homage to bikes in the Tercero housing area.
Even the windows in the Cuarto housing area radiate positive vibes.
10. The Eggheads
Sometimes people like to recreate the pose of their favorite Egghead.
Other times, people like to pretend they’re the real eggheads.
The creativity here is eggstraordinary. Get it?
