The term sometimes has derogatory connotations, but often is used in an endearing manner. The "townies" refer to themselves as ["Davisites"] both in passing and in ["davis enterprise" print]. In Davis, resident permanence can be anywhere from about five years to multi-generational.

The most common feature is the ankle reflector, as seen above. A true townie wears these even in the daytime. Various other reflectors also make for quick identification. Some townies, including many employees on campus, wear suits while they bicycle to campus. These townies usually have a reflector or other strap around their ankle to prevent getting chain grease on their pants. Some townies ride single speeds or fixed gears, but many outsiders do as well so it is difficult to distinguish these townies. Most outsiders have Timbuk2 messenger bags, while most Townies have Chrome messenger bags because they *think* it is cooler.

I don't think I'm bitter about people moving here, but I do dislike it when there is criticism of the quirky things about our community - our habit of having long public discussions about every change or decision, our tolerance of passion in local politics, our protectiveness of the downtown, and insistence for slower than molasses in winter growth.

I have never in my career had students who behave like these young women and men!! Many of them come to class, at most, every two weeks--- despite the fact that the syllabus states that attendance is mandatory and that they will fail the class if they do not attend regularly. I do have about 5 or 6 serious students and they are generally hard workers but the rest seem completely indifferent, not to mention incurious.
