Why I love CNR!

As I went into my last telebears appointment with my advisor, Susan, I couldn't believe how fast the four years on college has gone by. It seems like just yesterday when I didn't even know how to use telebears. I started thinking about the things that have really shaped my college career, and being in CNR was definitely one of the things that defined my life at Berkeley. The free printing and the very comfortable couches are not the only great things about CNR.

First, CNR offers so many opportunities for undergraduate research. Especially through SPUR, which offers both opportunities to do research with faculty or start your own independent research project. I noticed that especially in CNR, the faculty really love working with students and welcome many undergraduates into their labs. In addition, CNR offers small majors, if that's what you prefer. As an environmental sciences major, I know everyone in my year in my major, and it's really cool to be able to discuss each others projects when we see each other. I feel that CNR offers the small college environment within a large public university, so you get to experience both in one location. Also, everyone at the resource center is very friendly and helpful, and I love using the computer labs in 260. The PAL program has also allowed me to meet many of the staff, faculty, and students, and it has been a great opportunity for me to give back to the college. CNR has grown a lot since I first got here as a freshman, and I hope that it continues to grow so that more students can make use of the wonderful opportunities that CNR has to offer.
