Calapalooza is our bi-annual student involvement fair. New and continuing students can connect with members of our 1,200+ registered student organizations (RSOs), 60 sororities & fraternities (CalGreeks), and student government groups (ASUC and Graduate Assembly). Through Calapalooza, prospective members can learn how to join a student group, the benefits of membership, the expected time commitment, membership requirements, and how joining can positively impact a student’s Berkeley experience. Our student organizations provide countless opportunities for students to find community and follow their interests and passions at Cal.
