While supporting our Native students at Cal is primary focus, we also invite community and prospective students to visit campus and participate in programs!

Our student ambassadors are happy to work with individuals or groups who would like to visit campus, giving tours, meeting current Native students or creating a day-long program for college visits. We work closely with Admissions and other campus entities to help better expose you to everything that Berkeley has to offer. 

Visiting Campus

For individuals and groups, Berkeley offers general admissions presentations and tours daily. We encourage visitors to utilize these valuable resources, while also offering tours and activities through our student ambassadors program. If you are interested in bringing a youth group, or visiting as an individual, and would like a more tailored, Native specific experience, please contact us as we'll work to meet your needs. Out student ambassadors are top notch students who enjoy sharing their time and experiences with others!

Jumpstart Program

The Native community at Cal is firmly comitted to supporting Native students in the sometimes daunting process of applying to Cal. The Native American Recruitment and Retention Center (NARRC) partners with Native American Student Development to offer a program each fall to support Native highschool seniors apply to UC Berkeley.

Students accepted into the program are hosted for the weekend in the Native American Theme Program, and attend a series of workshops about the process of applying, as well as an intensive personal statement workshop. There are a limited number of positions open to be hosted overnight, but we welcome day-time participants as well.

Jumpstart Fall 2016 Dates: October 2016 (TBD)
