Student Socials

Come hang out at our pre-event student socials in the Mondavi Center Student Lounge!

As a currently enrolled UC Davis student, these free socials are just for you and take place one hour before the show.

We’ll have Woodstock’s Pizza, music, and awesome giveaways too, while supplies last. Must also have a performance ticket in order to attend.
