Hello New Students!

All of Berkeley is busy preparing for your arrival to campus. We’ve arranged for Getting Your Bearings (GYB), three full weeks of activities to help you transition to Cal, and it all starts with Move-in Aug. 20-21.

Campus departments and student organizations are offering about 300 events to make sure your college career is off to a great start.
