Cal Alumni Welcome Our Newest Golden Bears

This summer, Golden Bears across the country were thrilled to welcome our newest students in person at Summer Welcome Party gatherings.

September 30, 2022

34 Alumni Chapters hosted events throughout California and across the United States, welcoming UC Berkeley’s incoming first-year and transfer students. These events provided opportunities for students to meet their peers, and connect with alumni who shared stories of their time at Cal. Families were invited to share in this exciting journey and learn about the community in which their students would soon be immersed.
