Overall, I really enjoyed my experiences so far at UC Berkeley. Its diversity of students and resources provides an accepting educational environment. The academics are difficult, but there is lots of resources on campus to help you succeed.

I loved going to Berkeley. It is a University full of intelligent, critical thinkers focused on change. They have some of the best professors in the entire country. Tuition is affordable for in state residents and they have many student programs for those who have financial needs.

The academics in Berkeley are extremely difficult, and it's reflected in the rigor of its courses. But the amount of support is incredible, and the available resources are also plentiful.

Overall, UC Berkeley is a great place. However, there are some downsides to attending UC Berkeley. The housing situation is bad. Dorms and apartments are expensive and are hard to get. Another problem is the safety of the surrounding area. There are a lot of homeless people around the campus. Sometimes strangers come to the campus.

Berkeley boasts incredible academics. The courses are challenging and the professors are really kind and want to help you grow as an individual. The campus is beautiful and nestled at the foot of the Berkeley hills.
