Each year the Picnic Day Board chooses a theme that highlights something that matters to the Board of Directors, and we feel will be embraced by the campus community. This year the theme is Growing Together.

We feel that our theme highlights how UC Davis has grown alongside the City of Davis, which will be turning 100 in 2017. We began as Berkeley’s University Farm in 1908 and today we stand strongly as one of the top ten public schools in the nation. In addition, with this year’s Picnic Day being on Earth Day, we wanted to highlight UC Davis’s strides towards sustainability.
