Berkeley is a great school chock full of award-winning, book-publishing, enthusiastic professors who really know their stuff. If you take classes you're really interested in, you'll learn more. Don't forget about office hours, tutoring sessions, and study groups. Besides the required curriculum, there are a whole lot of opportunities to expand your view of the world - theater, symposia, films, lectures, and of course the occasional crazy person giving a speech on Sproul.

    A great place filled with a diverse class of students. A school that is academically challenging but equally enjoyable. A new home away from home where people are there to help you.

    An academic superstar among the public school system. Perhaps one of the weirdest campuses one might ever attend. Wide course selections are readily available!

    UC Berkeley (or Cal) is an incredible, life-changing experience. While it can be challenging and frustrating at times the educational experience is phenomenal. To top it all off, Cal is surrounded by the town of Berkeley, which is one of the strangest, most vibrant places I've ever been, adding to quirky charm to Cal's academic prestige.

    UC Berkeley is the best public university in the world. On the levels of spirit, academics, and social life, it is unparalleled. The experiences and opportunities UC Berkeley graduates have can only be rivaled by the Ivy League schools.
