The California Aggie is an entirely student-run publication. It is also financially independent, receiving no direct monetary support from ASUCD or the university, aside from using its offices rent-free. The Aggie publishes on Thursdays with a circulation of 8,000 papers at over 100 distribution points on the UC Davis campus and in the city of Davis. Without a journalism program at UC Davis, The Aggie is the best hands-on experience for students interested in journalism, reporting and other aspects of newspaper design and production.
