Welcome Back Berkeley!
Another successful first day of school kicked off on August 24, 2015, for the 55th time in school history. We welcomed just over 1,300 students (including 199 new students) to Berkeley’s freshly painted and spruced up campus. There were welcome back hugs, smiles and even a few tears – mostly by parents! The highlight of the day included our Middle and Upper Division students taking classes for the first time in the new Gries Center for the Arts and Sciences. We look forward to carrying the energy and excitement of the first day of school into the rest of what promises to be another great school year at Berkeley!
