the rare groupies caught on film!

Davis Groupies are people, usually 18 - 30/"college aged", who hang out in Davis when they neither reside in Davis nor attend UCD. Some over worked crazed UCD students feel threated by the presence of "Davis Groupies" as it somehow takes away their "street cred." But mostly they want your souls.

In reality Davis Groupies appear just like any other college-aged person roaming the streets. And often it's never known that they're a "DG" until someone asks about school. (Does every college aged resident attend UCD? The demographics of that must be AMAZING!)

Some Davis Groupies include:

I wanna be a groupie too!

2005-11-13 00:59:11   I have a question, is Davis groupie simply someone who doesn't attend UCD? Can they live in town and not go to school or is it really out-of-towners who don't go to UCD? —MichelleAccurso

2005-11-13 07:26:32   Is this saying that a person of "college age" who doesn't go to UCD doesn't belong here? If so, then the next step is to pass a law preventing them from being here. 1930... —SteveDavison

  • Exactly! This page is semi-joking though, Steve. It's a response to being angrily questioned whenever I'm in Davis. "You don't go to school here? Then WHY are you HERE?!?" Ha ha, they would so pass a law, those crazy NIMBY Yuppy Townies. I just know I sure do get a lot of heat for hanging around in Davis, I'm wondering who else gets it. —MichelleAccurso

2005-11-15 10:23:19   Remember our next meeting is wedensday, hope you all can come. —AndrewBanta

2005-11-15 10:26:20   We are Davis groupies, and that means we bring "Big Trouble" with us where ever we go. —AndrewBanta

2005-11-23 11:49:46   tickled burgundy! —MarieHuynh

2005-12-06 22:47:36   Oh my god, I am so glad I found you. I have always felt like such a groupie. I am moving to Davis within the next month, have been hanging out there for the last year and a half as a non-resident, and will not attend UCD. The kicker is that no matter how familiar I got with the town, visiting every few weekends from Humboldt, blending in with the biking students, I still had to be told by my finacée at every corner whether we were going straight or turning. I could just not find my way somewhere logically without going in circles, to the physical danger of my friends who thought they didn’t need to tell me when to turn: “she must know her way around by now.” I must blend in quite well. No one has ever hassled me. Even in EU III and Bainer at all hours of the day and night. Do I just smell like an engineering student? —JessaRego

2006-01-05 20:04:48   Man, i'm definitely a groupie —RohiniJasavala

2006-08-02 03:20:56   I think I'm prolly a groupie lol —JoeRunnels

2006-11-09 13:40:07   *raises hand* total groupie, and proud of it. —SamanthaWagner

2007-08-15 15:24:40   I am a davis groupie i live here and i don't go to UCD and i am not a native. —JackkiCox

Does it ever occur to you that the Davis student body as a whole (of which almost all of them fit into the age range of 18-30), is almost half of the population of the whole town? So yes, the demographics do show it. Technically, it's almost a 50/50 yes/no if you ask someone college aged in Davis if they go to UCD or not. This isn't including anyone who attends Sacramento State or it's Extension in Davis. —IdealParadigm

2010-01-31 18:35:58   I'm still a student, but what happens when you graduate UCD and still live in Davis (for the rest of your lease or for another year; in other words short term as oppossed to a townie)???? —BryceH

2010-07-02 14:16:33   i cant believe this actually living in woodland for the summer and im always roaming around davis... —simrandhaliwal

2010-08-07 08:18:15   I totally skipped the whole college thing and fell into a career that I can do anywhere... and moving to Davis with my boyfriend... I'm gonna be all nonchalant about it, lol. I'm not sure I can say I'm a groupie, but I do appreciate the phrase "tickled burgundy"... "I'm Ron Burgundy?" (Totally appropriate coming from living in San Diego for the last year and a half) —MeganPetersen
