Will visiting with family in Northern California, we stopped off at the University of California, Berkeley. I have to say, the students and faculty who get to learn and work here are truly blessed. What a beautiful campus, full of world renowned programs and research projects.
Sather Tower (1914) designed by John Galen Howard
Mr. Howard was commissioned to design 20 of Berkeley's "Classic Core" buildings on campus.
South Hall (1873) is one of the few original buildings remaining on campus today
On the quad not too far away from South Hall, you'll catch Berkeley students playing sports. In this photo, you'll find students practicing Quidditchthe, which is a game inspired by Harry Potter. Yes, they are really running around with brooms between their legs. And some of them were pretty fast!!
