News & Events

The Faculty Club is the site of numerous events, both private and public, which are too many to publish.  For example, the UC Berkeley Career Center reports that 90% of campus recruiting events are held at our facility.

Monthly Art Exhibit  – Bonnie Mager

Bonnie has been painting and exhibiting in the Bay Area for the past 30 years.

She has participated in group and solo shows in Oakland, Berkeley, Calistoga, Concord, Lafayette, and Healdsburg. She has studied drawing and painting at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, CCA, the Addison Institute in London, and with Louise Smith in Berkeley. She has taught art as a volunteer instructor in the Oakland Public Schools and Merritt College and teaches private classes to adults. She has contributed commissioned portraits to school fund raisers.

Bonnie works in oil on canvas, watercolor, and pastel and mixed media. She loves to paint en plein air, from life, or from sketches and photos in the studio.

Favorite subject matter ranges from landscapes of favorite places in California and abroad to the flowers in her garden. She has done series of works inspired by the urban landscapes of UC Berkeley, the grandeur of Yosemite and the Grand Canyon, and the simple architecture of old barns and mailboxes.

We were all saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Bonnie, on January 18, 2015.  It was our privilege to share her work with the Faculty Club community and a true pleasure getting to know her. Her husband Herb Mager and friend, Angela Hunkler, have kindly presented this year's exhibit on Bonnie's behalf. You can find more information about Bonnie and her work by visiting

Holiday Hours & Closures

The Faculty Club's office and dining calendars generally follow the UC Berkeley Academic Calendar, whereby we close on the same national and academic/administrative holidays. The Faculty Club does, however, remain open and offer full service during most of Spring Break and through the summer. The Faculty Club Hotel remains open throughout the year
