An estimated 3,000 visitors — and their cars — are coming to UC Davis on Friday, May 11, for the second of two Decision UC Davis events, this one for prospective transfer students.
The influx will put pressure on parking — and campus officials are advising faculty and staff to be prepared. “We realize there may be some inconvenience, and we appreciate your understanding and support for this important campuswide endeavor,” said Fred Wood, vice chancellor of Student Affairs.
The visitor estimate includes 1,200 prospective students, who have until June 1 to submit statements of intent to register, and family members and friends.
The visitors are being directed to the west entry parking garage and Lot 25 (between the Activities and Recreation Center and the Segundo Dining Commons). Overflow parking will be directed to Lots 40 and 41 (across Hutchison Drive from the west entry garage), Lot 30 (behind the Rec Pool) and Lot 47 (along La Rue Road south of the Tercero housing area).
Registration opens at 7 a.m. and early-bird tours begin at 7:30 a.m. at Bixby Field west of the Segundo Dining Commons. The Decision UC Davis program is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. in The Pavilion at the ARC.
