“Rich History, Loyal Alumni following, needs Housekeeping TLC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The campus is full of rich history, tradition, and energy. It could use a few more trash cans, and its students, staff and visitors could be a little more concerned with picking up discarded waste. Not nearly so tidy as the UCLA campus.

“Beautiful Campus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

The campus is a wonderful place to wander and admire both the beautiful landscaping, but also the many interesting and creatively designed buildings. It is especially enticing in the evening when the lighting accentuates the expressive panorama. It is well worth your visit even if you happen to be from the Leland Stanford Junior University.

“Graduation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

My daughter graduated from CAL after 5 long years of studies while working full time. She loves the environment & animals so she studied Conservation of Land & Resources. We are very proud of her as it takes work & effort to earn a Degree from such a high esteemed University.

“California Memeorial Stadium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My son's family took me to the newly renovated stadium where the Cal Bears play. The weather was perfect for the 50 -31 win over Southern Utah. We took BART to Berkeley and walked through the campus to the game. You can tell who is going to the game because everyone has on Blue and Gold Cal clothing. Just follow the crowd. The new stadium is great!

“High on a Hill, a beautiful campus with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We toured by car. Maybe the kids could hike up and down the hills, but not me. The place is inspiring and school started so there was a lot of energy.
