PALs, spring 2008...

As a PAL, I've always enjoyed spring semesters since it's that time of the year when recruitment events get put on for the next crop of Cal students. The big Kahuna of events was, of course, Cal Day. From student panels to campus tours, us PALs were heavily involved in the process, chatting it up with students and their parents on what it's like to be a Berkeley student and especially, what sets CNR apart from the rest of the campus.

Another perk that's been picking up in CNR is our movie nights, which have grown increasingly popular. Just last Tuesday we showed Juno in the Resource Center. That's right, on the day of release, a week before SUPERB did they're showing. Keep your eye out for future movie nights, as they are always FREE and accompanied by free pizza and drinks. Pretty cool, huh?

This will be my last semester as a PAL--I'll be graduating next month, a scary thought indeed. I'm trying hard to savor the last few weeks of my Cal student existence before entering into the "real world," whatever that is. According to my African lit professor, it will consist of all graduates sitting at home with mac & cheese in front of the couch blubbering in an unspoken existential crisis.

I don't think it will be that bleak, but the moral of the story is: Enjoy Cal while you're here. It goes by faster than you think.
