  • What a nice place to wander... rolling a bit of hillside wonderful buildings to look at and students excited to begin the new school year. If your visiting in the Berkeley area a nice place to hang.

  • I went to a class of Agile Management in the Continuous Education Extension of University of California, Berkeley. It was a highly interesting class.
  • I wouldn’t mind the nasty comments that are clearly left by salty conservatives. The campus is beautiful. The academics/professors are some of the nations best. Enough said. Go bears!
  • I'm just saying that this place is the best place to set up a future. The people and the atmosphere is just lovable. I wish I could be able to get back there one day!
  • Best decision of my life to go here. I got a fantastic education at a reasonable price & made lifelong friends. Almost everyone you meet here is impressive, going places or doing something meaningful with their lives. If you are a nerd at heart, feel like other people don't get you, love to read, or build things, or to think deeply about ideas, these are your people. Leave your ego at the door and be open to joining extracurriculars, and you will have an amazing experience like I did. BS '13
  • Always my favorite place to visit when I'm home. My grand daughter is named after this city. So many things to do and see. People's park. The book store, Rasputin's, I miss Blondies. Berkeley is the best.
