Easy access to SF, some of the best food in the Bay both at the high price range and the student price range if you like contemporary organic and California cousine. Undergrad bars as well as more young professional vibe. Pretty solid sports teams/events to socialize at. Great concerts at the Greek and throughout the Bay. Good public transit to avoid driving drunk. Great weather year round for BBQ's and partying outside. Most down to earth students. What more for which could you ask?
I'd hardly say "year-round"; its nice most of the time but it's no UCLA. Plus, certain parts of the city (many parts) are huge turn-offs for a lot of people. I feel like personal flavor plays a large role in how people feel about Berkeley.
