University of California, Davis

The University of California, Davis (UC Davis) is one of the largest University of California campuses in the state and is a well-respected university in the Sacramento region. The campus covers 5,300 acres in the college town of Davis.

The Challenge

Every year, UC Davis holds a large open house event on campus known as “Picnic Day.” This event continues to grow each year and draws a crowd of more than 150,000 people, which presents staffing and logistical challenges for the university and its suppliers.

The PRIDE Solution

Thanks to its established track record for exceptional service and its support on campus, PRIDE was asked to assist UC Davis and its vendors with staffing for this special event. The PRIDE team stepped up as a university partner to provide staffing for custodial porters, vendor booth set-ups, food deliveries, supply deliveries and overall custodial services on campus.
