There is a club/organization for everybody. Cal is so big that it is easy to loose yourself and this is well known, so there are a million clubs to help you keep your roots. Everything from speaking klingon to hip hop dance. It is very social and easy to find all the clubs, but hard to choose just one. Berkeley's motto is to get involved, so the school is very hands on in the community and in outreach programs that students can help with or make. The campus is safe, however, I have had several students tell me they were mugged off, but near campus. Overall, if you are just careful I think it is a safe campus though.

The social atmosphere here is very open. There are many clubs open to all sorts of people. Although I didn't participate in many clubs I do wish I was more involved in the campus activities. I enjoy joining to the athletic games.
