Why CNR?

I applied to CNR (unknowingly) under the Molecular Environmental Biology (MEB) major because I knew that I wanted to do something in science and health, but I didn’t know exactly what. As I was selecting the majors that I wanted to apply under for the UC application, MEB immediately stuck out—Cal was the only school that offered this major and it seemed interesting. I had an interest in science, but I was also interested in renewable resources and environmental awareness. Environmental Science major seemed good, but I liked the fact that MEB included a lot of pre-health courses, which kept my options open. So after doing a little more research online, I knew MEB was exactly what I wanted to major in.

I was pleasantly surprised at Cal Day when my family and I visited the CNR tables and listened to the CNR panels. It was great to hear about all the students’ experiences and actually listen to CNR faculty. I was surprised that CNR was so small and wasn’t exactly like L&S. The people were so helpful and welcoming, and I didn’t see that spirit in a lot of other schools, so I instantly knew that CNR was exactly where I wanted to be.
