Yifan Zou MPAc 23

I used to live on the east coast of U.S. and when my fiancé decided to move to the west coast I did a lot of searching for west coast universities. Among so many schools, UC Davis quickly caught my eye. I had a few good friends who had graduated from UC Davis, so I learned about the MPAc program from talking to them. UC Davis is in a great location and has very good job opportunities. Besides, the small class sizes make me feel safe since the professors pay attention to each student.
