Lots of trees and pretty chill. Tons of shopping and places to eat food in the area which is pretty cool.

It was a great visit to the campus, just to wander around the gardens. The iconic tower is beautiful. Carry food because the squirrels will practically eat out of your hands.

The campus is an interesting mix of architecture ... some buildings much more interesting than others. Be prepared for a uphill or down hill ... you choice.

Hi I have a niece from Southeast Asia who will be visiting San Francisco in Feb 2016, how do we get to UC Berkeley from Union Square and is there a website we could request or view information regarding foreign student's application and admission requirement for an undergraduate business degree?
