Most Helpful Review for University of California at Berkeley

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.

    I live really near UC Berkeley and toured there many times for field trips. The campus is really big but also beautiful with much greenery and trees. There are many good food options around the university too.

    This place is as great as the stories describe them to be. Going to college here is an embodiment of the American dream. Imagine every single positive aspect of the Ivy League schools and combine them with the uplifitng environment of California.

    UC Berkeley is big, and the number of people can be overwhelming, but there's something for everyone here. The location is great-- downtown Berkeley is just a short walk away, and San Francisco is accessible by bus. Although the classes can be difficult, there's plenty of support readily available, and you really do learn a lot.

    Really excited to view the campus. Hopefully it will be as nice in person as it is in the pictures I've seen.
