There are many places to see when you visit this campus of the University of California. Nestled in the Berkeley Hills, U.C. Berkeley's 178-acre campus offers a lush opportunity for outdoor study and exploration with its redwoods, oaks, and other trees that provide shade from the sun during long days of class time under their green canopies.
When you go, visit Sather Tower located at the center of this beautiful arboreal paradise; it was built in 1914 using marble quarried out of Alaska to create one of America’s most iconic landmarks - known as "the Campanile". Standing 307 feet tall (over 20 stories), you'll find The Campanile Bell tower which not only houses UCB's signature carillon clock but also holds an exterior observation deck complete with stunning views over the city below!
Moffitt Library is a must-visit for any Berkeley student. On the third level, there's not only a café with free wifi and comfortable seating but also an exhibit on one of the most important movements in UC Berkeley history: The Free Speech Movement which took place during the 1960s where students protested campus restrictions against political activity and helped to advance constitutional rights.
