The Summer Institute for the Gifted at University of California at Berkeley would like to invite you to two events: Wednesday's Academic Performance and Thursday's Closing Ceremony.



July 9th Academic Showcase starts at 7.30 pm to 9:30 pm-Dinner will be served for ALL students participating in this event; commuter students participating in this event should stay on campus for this event.


July 10th Closing Ceremony arrival 4:30 pm for a 4:45 pm start-ALL STUDENTS and PARENTS are invited to this event. This is the last day of the program for Commuter Students. University parking is available at the Underhill Parking Garage that is across the street from our residence halls: 2650 Haste Street.


At the Closing Ceremony, you will get to hear about your child’s unique, three-week SIG experience from myself, the Academic Dean, the Student Life Dean, a few student speakers, and through our SIG slideshow highlighting all of the great moments from the session. Please join us to celebrate the experiences, accomplishments, and memories of your child’s time with us.


Commuter students will leave campus after the Closing Ceremony, while Residential students will have dinner, pack their bags, and get ready for our last event: The Last Dance. On July 11th, students will have their final breakfast together at 8:00 am, and you may pick them up from 9:00 am to 11:30 am.

We look forward to seeing you there!
