Cal Day is campus-wide event that will be taking place on April 20, 2013 during which the University of California Berkeley holds a number of events and workshops for students from high schools and community colleges to learn about the wide range of opportunities that Cal has to offer. The Muslim Student Association at UC Berkeley uses this weekend to welcome prospective and admitted Muslim students into the community and to make ourselves available as a resource to help them achieve their academic and personal goals in higher education. We will be hosting students from Friday, April 19 to Saturday, April 20 and in addition to the programs being offered by the University, the MSA will also be holding various events throughout the two days, such as tours, a college workshop, and an entertainment night. After completing the registration form, we will send you an email confirmation with more details regarding the logistics of the weekend.
