OK, I'm prejudiced. I work here. But really, I still enjoy walking through campus every day. With creeks, eucalyptus and redwood groves, and beautiful landscaping, the natural setting is gorgeous, and the buildings have been placed in harmony with the contours of the landscape, rather than in the strict geometrical forms of some campuses (take that, Stanford!). Not only is it beautiful, with the views up to the hills, but there are lots of pockets of fun things to see and do. Kids will love the dinosaur skeletons in the Life Sciences building (T-rex!). The main library has the lovely Morrison Room, with its shelves of new books and journals, comfortable upholstered chairs and sofas, soft lighting, warm woodwork, and a music collection. Not to mention the humorous sculpture of Mark Twain, sitting on a park bench with his newspaper just outside the Morrison Room. You can sit next to him and have your photo taken. The Free Speech Movement Cafe in the Moffit Undergrad Library has great coffee and light meals, desserts, and snacks, and a wonderful outdoor terrace. Then there's the Art Museum on Bancroft and the Pacific Film Archive, with showings of rare and fascinating films. Those are just the places I know; others will have more suggestions. But do come over. It's worth the trip from San Francisco.
