DAVIS, Calif. - Throughout the 2017-18 season, UC Davis Athletics partnered with UC Davis Strategic Communications, for the first time ever, to create Snapchat Takeovers featuring various teams. Through the use of this popular social media platform, UC Davis students, and the general public, were provided opportunities to experience life as a student-athlete firsthand.

The women's golf team took full advantage of the university's account and created two of the most popular Snapchat Takeovers this past year. 

Until now, these stories were only available for viewing through Snapchat's app; all Snapchat Takeovers are available for viewing on UC Davis' YouTube channel. By visiting this portal, everyone can watch women's golf's Takeovers, which took place before (and/or during) the Meadow Club Women's Collegiate, co-hosted by San Francisco and San José State at The Meadow Club in Fairfax, and the Big West Championship, which recently took place in Irvine at Strawberry Farms Golf Course. 

Respective links for each Snapchat Takeover are available below:

Thanks to its creative storytelling, UC Davis women's golf is the only department, organization, club or team featured in multiple Takeovers this past year. A list of all university Takeovers is available by clicking here.



Since the 2005-06 season, its first as an intercollegiate program at UC Davis, women's golf quickly earned a reputation as one of the most successful teams in the Big West Conference. In addition to its six NCAA Championship appearances as a team or individual, the Aggies advanced to the NCAA Regionals every year since 2008.

In its brief history at the Division I level, the program won six Big West championships and boasts an honor roll that ranks among the best in the nation with four All-American scholars, three All-Americans, seven Big West Players of the Year and five Big West Freshmen of the Year.

Providing a small-town community feel while providing a world-class academic experience, UC Davis is home to more than 37,000 students and centrally located between San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, and the Napa Valley.

The No. 6-ranked public university in the nation, according to the Wall Street Journal, offers nearly 100 graduate programs and more than 100 academic majors across four colleges and six professional schools, ranking among the world and nation's best in numerous disciplines, including veterinary science, agriculture, and plant and animal programs.
