Berkeley International Office is excited to welcome you at Spring Orientation! We are planning a full schedule to introduce you to the campus, meet new friends, learn how to be academically successful, and provide opportunities to get your questions answered.

Due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, Berkeley International Office has made the decision to pivot to a virtual orientation in order to ensure the health and safety of our attendees, as well as to make the event as accessible as possible. All sessions and content will remain the same. We look forward to seeing you on Zoom!
