Cal Day '99 Wrap-Up

Photo: Cal Day logo

Sun and fun were the order of the day for the campus' annual transformation from a university to an academic theme park known as Cal Day. The open house event attracted more than 30,000 visitors to Berkeley from throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Guests were treated to a vast array of activities ranging from a mock fossil dig to concerts to cable car rides. Tours of campus schools, departments, libraries, sports facilities and grounds gave visitors a first-hand look at one of the world's leading public universities.

A string quartet serenaded visitors at Hertz Hall.
