What is Cal?
April 30th, 2007 was one of the most memorable days in my life. It was the day that I received a congratulated message from the Administration Office of U.C. Berkeley. Besides Berkeley, U.C. Davis was the only school I applied since I didn’t want to live far away from home. Choosing between Berkeley and Davis was not very easy for me at that time although I preferred Berkeley to Davis. Going to Davis meant that I can commute and save money from rent; however, I guess the love for Berkeley was much stronger so that I ended up a Cal student and I am glad that I have made a right decision.
There are so many things about Cal that make me happy with my decision to be here. The first thing I want to share is about many different fascinating majors offering at Berkeley. When I searched for a major to apply, I was amazed to find out that Berkeley had offered me so many interesting majors. I first chose to major in Molecular Toxicology, but now, I am happy with Nutritional Sciences major. I have also been enjoying taking classes at Berkeley. The materials are very interesting and most of the professors here are very enthusiastic, engaging and willing to help students. Their welcomed attitude toward students makes me feel comfortable to discuss with them during class as well as to go to their office hours.
The other factor that makes Berkeley be one of the best universities is its diversity. There are thousands of student organizations and clubs from many different ethnicities, majors and interests on campus. Therefore, Cal students have many opportunities to be involved in many extracurricular activities and be able to build a strong leadership. Berkeley is also a good place to live with a nice weather and convenient public transportation. The life of Berkeley city is very vibrant with many different activities within community.
Overall, I have had a good experience at U.C. Berkeley and if I have another chance to choose again, I will still choose Berkeley. Therefore, I hope that you will make a good decision for your future and no matter what your decision is, you are always welcome here at Berkeley.
