It's Telebears Season!
WELCOME BACK FROM SPRING BREAK! I hope everyone's was relaxing and a lot of fun. I unfortunately caught the flu over break so it wasn't so great for me :(. However, I had a wonderful time seeing my parents, little brother and high school friends again, all of which made up for the awful virus! :) On another note, I know we don't want to think about school right after our return from break, nevertheless the next semester, but telebears season is upon us again! I wanted to take this entry to remind everyone to check their Telebears appointments, get their adviser codes and provide some tips when enrolling for classes in Phase I.
To begin, Telebears Phase I begin April 12th and class schedule have already be uploaded to schedule.berkeley.edu. This semester, our wonderful CNR major advisers will continue with the use of office hour appointment to go over your next semester's schedule and provide your with your adviser code. Hopefully, the week before spring break, you have all received an e-mail with a link to the online application for making appointments and an attached document of the Telebears form to fill out. You can also pick up a form at the CNR Student Center in 260 Mulford. It's crucial that you make an appointment and go!
Check Bearfacts or Telebears for your telebears appointment and try to schedule an appointment with your adviser at least one week in advance on that appointment date. You must have an adviser code to sign up for classes in Phase I but you don't need a new one for Phase II Telebears. Please, please remember your telebears appointment and meeting!! You do not want to be put on the waiting list of all your classes especially during a time of financial constraint for the campus. So many classes will be cut or made smaller to accommodate the budget cuts. I recommend signing up for the larger lecture classes and smaller limited size classes in phase 1 first. This is particularly true for lower-division prerequisite courses, especially Reading and Composition (R&C) classes. The good news is that more R&C classes have been opened for next semester but you should still enroll in them early Furthermore, if you are already a declared student, many upper division classes specific to your major (i.e. core classes) will be reserved for you. However, you should also confirm that with your adviser!
So to end, happy spring, coming Easter and Passover to everyone and hope your semester is going well!
