On October 24, 2022, the International Student Program (ISP) hosted a campus tour of UC Berkeley. Seventeen international students and staff participated. The trip began with a charter bus ride from Skyline College to UC Berkeley, where students explored the Cal Student Store, the ASUC Student Union building, and the Golden Bear Café prior to the campus tour.

Students and staff got the opportunity to learn more about the history of UC Berkeley, information about the different admissions processes for majors, a glimpse at student life, the safety protocols to ensure student safety, and a tour around campus.

Kaitlyn Huang, ISP student ambassador and international student, mentioned that “it was not my first-time visiting UC Berkeley, but it was my first time learning about their traditions and superstitions…it was fun and interesting.” 

UC Berkeley is one of the most prestigious public universities in the world, being ranked #1 with UCLA according to a U.S. News and World Report on American college rankings.

The International Student Program is part of the Global Learning Programs and Services Division at Skyline College. If you wish to learn more about ISP, don’t hesitate to contact the ISP Office at skyinternational@smccd.edu.
