Welcome New Students!

UC Davis is known for it’s friendly atmosphere and as such Special Collections would like to extend a “Spirited Hello” to all our new and returning students. You can see from the below image that saying “Hello” is a tradition that campus members actively promoted. Later this became known as the “Hi Aggie Spirit”. Friendliness is part of being an Aggie.

Taken from a page out of the 1939-1940 California Aggie Freshman Handbook.
