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.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

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: Women's Studies
Graduation Year: 2011

The faculty in my department, in particular, were outstanding. I truly enjoyed the academic aspects of my time at Berkeley. The area in general (and the university in particular) has a unique culture, and you are sure to meet a variety of people there - whether the experiences are good or bad, they are illuminating sources of personal growth. Students at the campus keep the spirit of protest and thoughtful critique alive on campus, which I believe to be invaluable.

Degree: Rhetoric and Composition
Graduation Year: 2009

A small college within a large university with a committed faculty, intelligent students, and an incredibly diverse class load. I came into Berkeley not knowing what Rhetoric was, and now I can't imagine having studied anything else.

UC Berkeley is everything that I could have wanted and more. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Cal has a reputation of having very tough classes that focus a lot more on theory rather than as much practical design compared to other schools. I am not sure if that is a good thing or not, as on one hand it is hard to learn such theory once you leave school and you can hone practical design afterwards, but on the other theory is useless without applications. Outside of class both Cal and the city in general is a very socially accepting place (no one judges me for being a Celtic folk listening, anime watching, competitive Pokemon battling board gamer who sings loudly to himself as he walks down streets) with a plethora of restaurants serving a broad span of cuisines around campus.

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2012

An EECS degree from UC Berkeley is the perfect start to a career in tech in the Bay Area.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 1985

Brilliant people, socially active campus, and a great location are three reasons for attending Cal. Both student life and academic life are excellent here.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2012

UC Berkeley is a top class college in academics. Great name and well recognized at an international level. The big brand name recognition is worth the public school tuition if you are from california. My degree in Economics pushed me to a whole new level of performance due to the extreme competition. Very bright classmates, many foreign students, big challenge. The reward at the end of it is definitely worthwhile.
