There’s a certain Disneyland quality to UC Berkeley on Cal Day. The campus and its students are on their best behavior (unless of course, you find yourself too far down frat row). Sproul Plaza is awash with sound and color as various organizations compete for the attention of eager prospective students and nostalgic alumni. It may not be the most faithful portrayal of what life at UC Berkeley is actually like for students — but maybe that was never really the point.

Cal Day serves as a great reminder of the genuinely remarkable achievements taking place across campus, and it’s a great opportunity for a prospective student to become inspired by all the projects they could possibly contribute to. And more importantly, it’s a chance to interact with current students who can offer up their own learning experiences.

If you’re a prospective student, welcome to UC Berkeley. The Daily Californian is excited to answer your questions and share our stories with you.
