Getting involved in campus
A wise EECS major once told me, "You're the one that chooses how great your Berkeley years will be be. You'll get out only as much as you put in."
When you come to Berkeley, it's quite easy to stay uninvolved. No one forces you to talk to your neighbors. You don't have to leave your room. You can stay isolated (perhaps miserable) if you so desire. People who say Berkeley sucks tend to be those that have no passion. On the other hand, you can be a person who has drive, ambition, and passion. You can jump into things at Berkeley. Join a club. Talk to the people older than you. Learn, live--really live. You might not have drive, ambition, or passion. That's fine too. Many of those people are actually a bit scary. ^^ j/p.... However, explore and find something that you like. Volunteer. Sing. Dance. Act. There's so many opportunities here. It's up to you to get started yourself. You're here, independent, and you get to mold yourself.
