Student Quotes

"EASE has been a great community that really stresses the importance of taking care of our environment. We have meetings and speakers about EASE theme. It is great and fun! Most of our programs incorporate our theme, even when we get together to watch movies. Recently we went to the student co-ops for composting and it was a great activity."

"The Environmental and Agricultural Sustainability Education program is great. We are offered many opportunities to explore what Davis has to offer in terms of volunteering and internships in the environmental/agricultural sciences. There are also many enjoyable yet educational programs, such as discussions with professors and campus organizations. Overall, awesome program."
