UC Berkeley

UC Berkeley has an incredible reputation. 107 Nobel laureates. 19 Pulitzer Prizes. 207 Olympic medals. Simply put, it’s one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world.

But the thing that really sets Berkeley apart? The atmosphere. It’s an electic mix of artsy and entrepreneurial, of laidback and driven. Here, sandwiched between giant redwoods and giant tech firms, you’ll meet 40,000 fellow students from all over the world. Some of them will be like you. Some of them will be different to you in almost every way. That’s what makes it so fun.

Berkeley students go on to do incredible things. They become entrepreneurs, and oncologists, and actors, and activists. And you could be one of them.

So, what are you waiting for?
