What I am thankful for in CNR...
Since its almost thanksgiving, I thought I would make this blog about what I am thankful for in CNR. After three years in CNR, I have found that it definitely is a "home away from home." However, when applying, I initially did not know I was applying to CNR, so this has been an awesome "mistake" (to say the least). On the application, I checked the box for the first biology major I saw not realizing that genetics and plant biology was in the college of natural resources. I have to say that yes, at first I was a little upset about getting into CNR (everyone told me it was the "hippie college"). My mindset changed when I sat in my first CNR class at Berkeley and had my first appointment with my major counselors. I realized how much CNR has to offer, both small college atmosphere within a large university of resources.
It began to grow on me of how much I loved be a part of one of the smallest colleges at UC Berkeley. When I needed help, I would just walk into the advisors office and ask for some help (without even having to make an appointment). The personal attention here at CNR is definitely what has helped me plan my program with plenty of time for my extracurricular activities.
Now what other college offers free printing and a couch area to sleep or study? What other college offers an endless amount of programs? CNR is definitely one of a kind in all the resources it has to offer. Only small colleges would be able to offer such an amount of resources to all its students.
With that being said, I recommend you to come and use the CNR resource center at least once in the next couple of weeks and see what you think about the great atmosphere. Come to at least one program next semester and read your CNR newsletter emails to keep up with all the programs going on! :)
Well have a good thanksgiving and make sure you use the resource center when you come back from break!
