Not too cold, not too hot.

Faculty don't care about the undergraduates.

Dining at Berkeley is great.

I loved Berkeley. It rocks

Thanks to California's financial situation, public schools such as UC Berkeley are not getting adequate funding. As a result, tuition is increasing and financial aid is becoming more limiting.

I never delved into the Greek Life but I noticed that there are some awesome groups that help students academically and there are groups that party far too hard for my acceptance.

Ii met great friends and people, but I wish the classes could be more intimate and the grading scale isn't as harsh. UC Berkeley, I learned, is a poor place to be a pre-med unless you're really talented.

Most majors and the degree that come with it will greatly help you find a job after graduation. However, finishing the major with good GPA will be extremely difficult and some major advisers have a little below average quality.

I never used the campus computer but the campus wireless is decent. Some buildings, especially the crowded ones, will have slower internet connection because of the vast number of students using the internet for class.

It really depends on where you look. Because this is the Bay Area, the living cost is relatively high.
College Junior 2013-11-16T21:58:12Z
Even though I don't see it, there's definitely quite a bit of drug interractions happening on campus and near campus, especially marijuana usage. Parties don't happen too often, but when they do, too many students get drunk to the point the school made it to the local Bay Area ABC news.

I have had not much problems with the campus strictness. I do feel like there should be increased regulation of controlled substances.
College Junior 2013-11-16T21:54:52Z
The weather is very bipolar. Morning and night could be freezing and the day could get really hot and humid, even though the thermostat reads around 77 degree fahrenheit. I would still like southern california weather more.

Health & Safety:
As long as you know where to go and where to avoid, it is generally safe to walk around on campus, even at night. Even if you want to study late into the night and return home later, you can call BearWalk, a service of which someone (usually a student security officer) can walk with you back home. There's also the night campus shuttle that can give you a lift back to your school dorm.

The school seems to focus on increasing diversity. I definitely experience more diversity than my hometown could ever have.
College Junior 2013-11-16T21:50:03Z
The city of Berkeley has its ups and downs. Lower portion of the hill can be scary and unsafe whereas upper portions of the hill is the opposite. There seems to have a lot of student events going on off-campus.

Robberies happen quite often. Usually nothing major, but it's still scary walking around alone after about 10 p.m.
College Freshman 2013-11-13T03:43:54Z
You can smell marijuana on the streets of Berkeley quite often. Alcohol is mostly limited to parties, but it is quite common.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
