THE DOWNLOAD: An Evening Breakfast and 2 Commencements

Finals and other end-of-the-quarter assignments kept students busy last week, so, no wonder around 2,000 of them turned out for the Moonlight Breakfast last Tuesday (Dec. 6) for nourishment and a break from their studies, hosted by the administration. The ASUCD Coffee House provided the venue, Dining Services did the cooking and Chancellor Gary S. May and other leaders served up the pancakes, breakfast burritos, fruit, coffee and more.

Almost as popular as food from the chancellor: Selfies with the chancellor. Take a walk around the CoHo with the chancellor in the above video.

Grads get out of the rain

About 1,000 students capped their week with grad caps! Two commencements were held Saturday (Dec. 10) in the University Credit Union Center — a welcome shelter from the wind and rain. Regular fall commencement took place in the morning, followed by the last of three spring makeup ceremonies.

Speaking of commencement, social media users will have their chance to vote on their favorite UC Davis grad caps starting Wednesday (Dec. 14). Voting will be conducted on the UC Davis Facebook page, and more information is available online.
