What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
The environment is incredibly welcoming and you'll always find a place to fit in. It's definitely challenging, but incredibly rewarding. Personally, I adore it.
Whitney from Berkeley, CA
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.
