Summer is here, a time when more UC Davis affiliates go abroad for study and research, prompting Global Affairs to post a reminder about the travel registration requirement enacted last year to promote travelers’ safety and security and ensure appropriate risk mitigation procedures are applied to “high-risk” travels.
Please note: Trip registration is automatically included for trips booked through AggieTravel (Connexxus). If you book your travel elsewhere, you’ll need to register through UC Away.
At no cost, trip registration provides UC Davis travelers and companions traveling on university business with comprehensive benefits, including emergency evacuation, medical care, travel alerts, and reimbursement for property loss and trip delays. Registration takes less than a minute and provides travelers with critical, location-specific travel updates, important insurance information, and ensures timely response in a crisis anywhere in the world. “Last year, during a trip, I experienced a medical emergency,” Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter said. “I always register my trip and am more conscious than ever of the need to have a communications plan in place.”
Tailgate on Champions Corridor
UC Davis Athletics announced a new premium tailgate zone for Aggie football in the fall: Champions Corridor on La Rue Road in front of the stadium. Also, this fall, a second parking lot will be designated for Team Aggie, with tailgating permitted in both locations. The changes (see map) result from the loss of Tailgate Field at the southwest corner of La Rue Road and Hutchison Drive, where the Student-Athlete Performance Center is under construction.
The Aggies are coming off their first Big Sky Conference title — so “Champions” Corridor is the perfect place to tailgate. The corridor has 50 spaces, and, in this inaugural season, each space comes with a UC Davis-branded pop-up tent. Limited spaces remain, so act fast — call 530-752-AGS1 (2471) — if you’re interested. Lot 53 (southwest of the stadium) will be the second Team Aggie parking lot, joining Lot 56 (south of the stadium). Team Aggie parking is reserved for athletics donors.
Want to join Team Aggie? Contact the UC Davis Ticket Office:
In-person (northeast corner of the stadium) — 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday
Phone — 530-752-AGS1 (2471)
Season tickets: Online, in person, or by phone. Renew or purchase by June 30 to receive a replica Big Sky championship ring while supplies last. The Aggies’ regular-season schedule includes five home games, starting Saturday, Sept. 14, versus Lehigh.
Reception set for AVC Don Hunt.
Budget traveling will really be an adventurous experience that you will cherish throughout your life. So gather as many mementos as doable, but do not get lured into the duty-free retailers because they always charge a lot more for mementos!
