You must go there if you love squirrels. They are everywhere in the campus. You also get a nice view of the campus and San Francisco from the clock tower. It is a beautiful campus.

It is a beautiful campus with redwoods, a stream or two and eclectic buildings. It is the ancestral home of the Free Speech movement and has academic departments that encourage students to learn how they can help in other countries as well as at home.

Kind of a big, safe urban park. Beautiful architecture and grounds. Shady lanes, little forests, winding creeks and big green lawns.

Walking through the Berkeley campus is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. The architecture, sense of living history and plantings, not to mention the creek, are fabulous attractions. Have a picnic on the grounds in a grassy field, on an historic bench, or aside a majestic fountain.

Anything and everything is available at UC Berkeley, to see, to read about and to appreciate. World class teachers and students come to one place to learn, to share and teach. Together with a wonderfully historic campus layout with awesome views, UC Berkeley is one of the best places to go to, to learn about and apply for.

I love this campus. It is great experience to visit this university it is not like other college with very high tuition, hard for ordinary people to go in. This school has great financial aid program for meddle lower income family to afford.

My family attended the walking tour organized by Cal. Our guide gave us lots of interesting information about the university, campus and student life. We enjoyed it.
