Event Details

NIU President Doug Baker is making a stop in San Diego to join alumni and friends on the Berkeley, an irreplaceable national landmark. During the event, he'll share his strategic initiatives for student career success. Learn more about President Baker's welcome tour.

As you dine on the Berkeley, you'll learn how this 1898 steam ferryboat saved thousands of survivors from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and how it contributed to the technological revolution. Owned by the Maritime Museum of San Diego, the Berkeley tells stories of the past through its architecture and exhibits.

Enjoy dinner and an open bar aboard this 115-year-old restored treasure.
