Voting has more benefits than just a feeling of having done your civic duty: That little white "I Voted" sticker is good for a discount at the Aggie Reuse Store and Aggie Surplus. Voters will get 18 percent off at Aggie Reuse and half off any item priced at $25 or more at Aggie Surplus.
Haven't voted yet? First, find your polling place on the Yolo County Elections Office website. There are polling places in the Memorial Union, Russell Park Apartments and elsewhere in Davis. End up at the wrong polling place? You can still vote provisionally, and your vote will still count after a delay.
If you need help getting there, Unitrans is free all day today (Nov. 6) (see routes and schedules on the Unitrans website). Or, rent a ZipCar between 6 and 10 this evening and receive a $20 credit for the service. Read more about that promotion on the goClub website.
Ribbons on the quads
UC Davis’ yellow ribbon tradition dates back to 2011 when a student veteran-led effort adorned the main Quad’s 100-plus trees with ribbons as a symbol of remembrance of men and women serving far from home. In 2015, the ribbon project expanded to Vanderhoef Quad at the south entrance to campus.
Interactive map shows arboretum history
Have you ever walked the paths of the UC Davis Arboretum and wondered what it looked like 80 years ago when it was first planted? Have you ever imagined all of the special moments that the plants have witnessed?
Ella Groff, a museum education co-coordinator for the arboretum's Learning by Leading program, did, and created two interactive maps to showcase its history and the memories people have for specific parts of the arboretum.
