Why I chose to become a PAL

I heard about the PAL program last fall after my switch to CNR. I immediately decided to become a PAL because I thought that this program will expand my network here at Cal and will also help reinforce my leadership capabilities. This is only my first semester in the program and I already feel so much more involved with the college community than I’ve ever been. As a PAL, I get to participate in events at which I represent the college and also work closely with the staff to help expand the college's diversity by promoting awareness about the unique opportunities at CNR. The PAL program also organizes a movie night each semester which is a whole lot of fun because you mostly to relax and have fun with the other wonderful peers. Did I mention the free pizzas and drinks??

Overall, being a PAL is a great experience because everyone in the program is friendly and enthusiastic. PAL has allowed me to find great friends within the program for which I’ll be forever grateful. If you are interested in being a PAL for the upcoming semester or have any questions about the program, feel free to come talk to any of the PALs during advising hours!
