Cal Day 2022


Berkeley, CA |
April 23, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Planning is underway for Cal Day 2022, our annual campus-wide yield event showcasing the best of Berkeley to newly admitted students and their families, many of whom choose to attend Berkeley as a result of this experience. Cal Day will look and feel different this year. Cal Day will be dedicated to registered, newly admitted students and their families only. With very few exceptions, Cal Day activities will be held outdoors. Vaccination checks will be required for any pre-approved indoor activity. These safety and comfort decisions were made after weighing information from our campus health advisors and we feel this is the best course for this year’s event. 

This year Cal Day will showcase  Berkeley Discovery, an exciting campus priority that aims to reimagine the undergraduate experience at Berkeley to support every student in a unique, personalized journey of discovery. We encourage you to use the day to celebrate the ways that your unit fosters a sense of belonging, elevates the importance of mentorship, and gives students access to exciting Discovery projects.

The day will begin at 9:00 am with a morning welcome from Chancellor Christ and other campus leaders for these admitted students and their families. Following the morning welcome, families will have the opportunity to discover the campus with outdoor activities, information booths, and more to inform and engage families, all demonstrating Berkeley’s commitment to ensuring that all students find community and achieve academic success.

To help Cal Day attendees navigate the event and create a schedule for themselves, we will be utilizing the Guidebook app that is used at Homecoming and Golden Bear Orientation. We urge every campus department and unit to begin now to make a plan to participate by staffing one of the many tented tables that will be set up across campus.
