I love my friends. I came from a small high school and my graduating class was around 130. When I first came to Berkeley, the thought of making friends in my intro science classes of a few hundred students like my freshman Chem 1A class was daunting. However, after a few weeks, it was so easy to talk to my classmates and easily form covalent bonds (haha). My
lab and smaller discussion classes as well as SLC study groups allowed me to get to know people better, and now I still keep in touch with friends I have met from my freshman year. It really helps to be able to call someone up and complain and they're able to empathize. Also, since I am from SoCal, my friends are able to cheer me up whenever I miss home. It's
important to balance your social and academic life!
