Booking Your Flights
We strongly recommend flying into Oakland instead of San Francisco if possible. It's much closer and faster, and travel from the airport to Berkeley is considerably cheaper.
Coming to Berkeley: Book a flight for Friday, June 28 that gets you into Oakland between 7-10am. Returning home: Get a flight for Friday, August 9 that departs after 2pm.
