The Office of International Education offers activities and trips throughout the year. We have gone camping in Yosemite and Mount Lassen, stayed at a cabin in South Lake Tahoe during the winter, attended basketball and baseball games, as well as made local trips to Mt. Tamalpais, Tilden Park, and surfing along the coast. If you have any ideas or would like to help coordinate a trip for international students, send your ideas to us at
