The University of California, Berkeley is a public research institution that occupies over 6,000 acres on the Eastern side of the San Francisco Bay and is home to some of the finest undergraduate programs in the country. Look no further than the designated parking sports for Nobel Laureates. With over 70 of them as faculty, alumni or researchers Berkeley’s students receive a terrific education from some of the brightest minds in the world. While Berkeley is certainly one of the best universities in the country year-in and year-out, it is perhaps best known for the extremely active student body. The Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC) is one of the most autonomous student governments at any public university in the country. This autonomy and activism permeates all activities on campus from housing to course planning. When not active on campus or hitting the books, Berkeley students can take advantage of their eclectic town with great food and cultural offerings, or hop across to funky San Francisco.
