Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2009

Berkeley was an eye-opening and formative place for one's personal and professional development. As a public institution, it provided the socioeconomic diversity that enabled contrasting ideas and opinions to flourish. As a preeminent research university with an large student population, there is something for everyone be it academic programs, student events, or just social networks. From a pure value perspective, especially if one is a California resident, the career opportunities given the cost of "admission" is one of the most distinguishing qualities. I simply hope that alumni can give back to enable the next generation of students to achieve an affordable, top-tier university experience.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2015

Practice of Art program is best for transfer students who studied art in community college and who already have a solid foundation in their medium of practice. Program was best at exposing students to non-traditional contemporary art and expanding their art practice. However, the program does not offer technical teachings. Professors are always willing to help but sometimes are too busy or not available. But since I've graduated, the program has changed a lot, seemingly for the better.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2003

UC Berkeley is a large institution filled with endless opportunities. Seek out courses and activities that interest you, but also expand beyond the boundaries that you have set for yourself. Some of the best learning experiences come from conversing and collaborating with people who are different and the students, staff and faculty at this school come from all walks of life. Take advantage of the campus and its beautiful surroundings.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2007

UC Berkeley is a wonderful school. I would make a decision before going to college what major you want to pursue, and then check what classes you need to take ahead of time to graduate. I would choose a career based on what you would enjoy as a career and also what job opportunities are available.

A competitive but close-knit college. There are a lot of people, so you are sure to find a group that fits you as a person.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014

People warned me that Berkeley would be very competitive, but I didn't find that this was the case. My classes were challenging but never cutthroat, and people were willing to help each other in spite of the rumors I heard before attending. The courses were certainly difficult,but definitely manageable given reasonable time management skills. It definitely isn't a good place for procrastinators. Finally, while I generally liked the campus, some of the undergraduate buildings could have used some renovation.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Berkeley is an amazing school with amazing people. There is so much to learn at this campus, and so many opportunities to grow. Berkeley will not hold your hand - you will need to figure it out on your own. But this experience will cause you to grow in ways you didn't know were possible. The people you meet will astound you. Go to this school, if you can. It is worth it. The Bay Area is an amazing place to live, too. If you have never been, it's worth checking out.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2009

This is quality school. I was consistently challenged and engaged in thought. I grew as a person constantly through the education I was receiving. Professors and students alike were very stimulating and encouraging of self development. Living in the BSC was 1/2 of my educational experience. I met the most wonderful people and long lasting friendships and mind blowing revelations about life and success. Highly recommended. :)
