School Details

Following the gold rush that brought hundreds of thousands of people to the state, the University of California was founded when two institutions merged – the private College of California in Oakland, and a new state land-grant institution, the Agricultural, Mining and Mechanical Arts College. The University of California was born out of a vision in the State Constitution of a university that would "contribute even more than California's gold to the glory and happiness of advancing generations." Today, The University of California, Berkeley, is the No. 1 public university in the world.
