In a collaborative effort with Cal State East Bay, Peralta Colleges, Holy Names University, U.C. Berkeley, St. Mary's College of California, and the University of San Francisco, the East Bay Consortium holds an annual College Day at U.C. Berkeley. College Day is aimed at middle and high school students and parents by providing them the opportunity to explore the infinite higher education options that lay ahead of them.
Over 60 representatives from colleges and universities throughout the United States attend and offer prospective students a glimpse into their college. In addition, students and parents have the opportunity to attend several workshops. Workshop topics include: admissions information, keeping college as a goal, historically black colleges, completing the UC Application, and required college admissions tests.
The East Bay Consortium's College Day is always held in the beginning of October.
