The California Aggie

The California Aggie With more than 90 writers, editors, copyreaders, photographers, designers, advertising representatives and sales clerks, The California Aggie is an entirely student-run publication serving UC Davis and the Davis community. It is also financially independent, receiving no direct monetary support from ASUCD or the university, aside from using its offices in 25 Lower Freeborn rent free. The Aggie publishes Monday through Thursday with over 70 distribution points placed over the UC Davis campus and the city of Davis. The Aggie publishes 7,000 copies Monday through Wednesday and 8,000 on Thursday.
