YES Berkeley! Student Recruitment

On behalf of the Cal Alumni Association, the YES Berkeley! Student Recruitment program would like to convey our gratitude to our College Fair Alumni Ambassadors. More than 160 alumni and 200 schools across the country partnered with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to help facilitate college fairs. We appreciate your time and dedication to recruit the best and brightest to UC Berkeley!


Each year the Alumni Scholars Program is honored to award more than 800 scholarships to deserving Cal undergrads and incoming students. We wouldn’t be able to do this impactful work without your committed support. This year, you contributed over 3,000 hours of service from around the globe.

From all of us at the Cal Alumni Association (CAA), happy holidays to you and yours!
