Aggie Launch Day Preview 2020

Intercollegiate Athletics will honor its 2019-20 senior class on Aggie Launch Day, an event spanning the department’s website and social media accounts tomorrow morning (June 11) celebrating graduating student-athletes’ “launch” into the world after college.

Throughout the day, Intercollegiate Athletics will celebrate student-athletes' academic success, athletic accomplishments, post-undergraduate plans and highlight its student-athlete resource groups.

In addition to content available on respective social media feeds, each team will have an opportunity to exclusively feature their graduating seniors online through team-created videos and graphics.

Fans are encouraged to share their appreciation, words of encouragement or support on social media include the hashtag #AggieLaunchDay.

Aggie Launch Day-specific content will allow student-athletes to share personal highlights, favorite moments and explain how Aggie EVO prepared them for a successful launch following graduation.

Through the Aggie EVO System, UC Davis Athletics is uncommonly committed to positioning its student-athletes for a great job or graduate school once their undergraduate career concludes.

Aggie EVO is an important facet of the UC Davis student-athlete experience, and focuses on four key elements to prepare Aggies for future success: skills to make student-athletes valuable; knowledge of what careers and paths are available; opportunities to secure internships and jobs through a powerful network of alums; and the tools needed to secure these opportunities.
