Join us for Cal Week 2021!

April 21, 2021

Congratulations, New Bears!

While we wish we could be meeting you in person for Cal Day, the COVID-19 pandemic precludes our usual gathering at this time.

Instead, the Data Science Undergraduate Studies Program is excited to host a series of online resources and virtual events to welcome our newly admitted students.

If you are interested in learning more about Data Science at Cal, please explore our Cal Week events here!
