Aggie Refresh

Aggie Refresh

2020-21 was a year unlike any other. We had so much fun welcoming our new Aggies virtually through Aggie 101, Aggie Advising, and Aggie Orientation in the Fall of 2020, and Winter and Spring of 2021. As more typical campus operations resume, we know you may want a refresher on the foundation you built during last year’s Orientation. Enter Aggie Refresh, an in-person program designed to build off your first year of experiences at UC Davis. Aggie Refresh is exclusively for undergraduate students who began their first year at UC Davis during the 2020-21 academic year.  

By participating in Aggie Refresh, students will… 

  • be able to navigate campus and find their classrooms and buildings of campus resources.   
  • build connections with other students in person.  
  • feel excited and welcomed to campus.  

You will have an opportunity to hear from campus leadership, faculty, explore campus, and meet with a small group of students in your College, as well as an experienced Orientation Leader!
