ASUCD Leader Visits 'Davisville'

The student government at UC Davis employs more than 1,000 people, speaks for one of the most important constituencies in Davis, and runs popular local services and events like Unitrans and Picnic Day.

But fewer than 6 percent of students voted in the Associated Students of UC Davis fall 2022 election. What are people overlooking?

On the current edition of “Davisville,” ASUCD President Radhika Gawde talks about engagement, students’ biggest concern (the rising cost of living), and the organization’s relief services for students, plus appreciation that UC Davis lets students dabble in classes across disciplines, and a wish for more late-night food options in town.

“Davisville,” hosted by Bill Buchanan, appears on Davis station KDRT-LP, 95.7 FM on Mondays at 5:30 p.m., Tuesdays at 5 p.m., Fridays at 12:30 p.m., and Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. The current program will be broadcast through Feb. 4, 2023, and is available anytime at or on Apple podcasts.
