A Bright History

Photographs capture moments of the past and present. With these photos, take a walk through the UC Berkeley campus to commemorate the university's 150th Homecoming. Notice the changes that have occurred over the years and the consistencies—its landmarks, students and passion—that continue to define Berkeley.
