Student, University of California-Berkeley, Class of 2018,
The diversity of our campus is incredible. There are so many different communities represented at Berkeley and ways to connect with people like yourself. That being said, there are also lots of people who are very different than you that you can learn valuable lessons from. The academic rigor is another reason to attend Berkeley. Among our professors are Nobel Laureates and famous researchers, and they all choose to be at Berkeley to teach YOU. However, the number one reason to attend Berkeley is for the sense of community and pride that comes with being a golden bear. There are alumni all across the country that want to work with you and get to know you because you are part of the Cal Family.
