Prestigious Universities: UC Berkeley

By Philip James

     Berkeley is the city on the other side of the bay bridge from San Francisco. Great city with open minds, public transportation, great eateries and a great liberal university.

     University of California Berkeley is like a place no other. Situated between Oakland and San Francisco, there's barely a scarcity of events for any type of student. If you want laid-back and casual time much like me, you could meet up with your pals in your dormitories or perhaps at one of the libraries there. Additionally you can see a few of the local spots there, including the streets packed with specialty restaurants, stores and bars, merely outside the campus grounds. There aren't that much of commercial chain merchants there, like California Pizza Kitchen but if you ask me, I think it lets preserve the essence of the place.

     This particular university, most generally as Cal, features a really dynamic student body. The Free Speech Movement took place there and just by walking around the university, you're going to get the sense of friendship and unity plus an outstanding level of pride for the university. Athletics events are undoubtedly an important component of this university. There are lots of sports teams that one could try out in, and if you're not really into that, you'll definitely get to experience the phenomena of our tailgating events and Bonfire Rally, which is attended by almost all student population, family members, alumnus and other people turned into friends. While we must accomplish our role within the classroom, we likewise place in equal effort into our extra-curricular pursuits. This you are able to enjoy come days off.

     If you are an incoming freshmen, you'll are able to lodge at one of many housing establishments inside the university. University of California Berkeley helps make it better and much more relaxed for college students to move around. One can find plenty of car parking areas if you plan to bring your own car but it does seem such a throw away not to talk a walk around to better see the Redwoods and natural decorations scattered throughout the university. It is especially breathtaking come early spring, when everything is in bloom as well as sun is out. And don't stress about being all alone, strolling back to your dorm late at night. The security guards rove the campus 24 / 7.

     The best thing in Cal is the people. It is extremely effortless to find new people yet what I observed in this particular university is that you will get to know loads of fun, zealous, intelligent as well as eclectic students. Merely the actual mentality of the student population will certainly keep you going to enhance yourself and more importantly, lead you to good results. Until recently, I have retained several relationships even though everyone graduated already.

     Nature, heritage, sporting events and people. Just what more could you ask for in an institution? Hence head on out to North California to see with your own eyes the enchanting place called University of California Berkeley.
