XIX opening Every year as the month of August grew closer and the open- ing of the new school year approached, students began to feel antsy about what the coming year had in store for them. Adding another year to the Cal experience, or barely beginning it was always an un- consciously anticipated event. Still, defining it remains a complex mystery that leads to many paths but no final conclusions. It is a given that each incoming student will inevitably add depth, complexity and an individual perspective to the ever growing mystery of the Cal experience. People can see it as one event that embodies the whole thing. " Pulling all nighters, throwing a party where you don ' t know half the people there, or even sleeping with your TA " were among those heard in rounds of conversation. Most see it as how Cal affects you while you are here. How it has changed you or (continued on page 5) •♦ I I 2 HI opening Hats off.

These spirited Cal Fans expose more than their spirit at one of the home football games. Painting slogans or " Cal " on various body parts is a popular pastime of many sports fans. Often students and alumni attending the games saw many fans showing their spirit in this manner. However, these body paintings might result in some unusual tan lines.

This is an accepted fact. Yet once one arrives to a mecca as infamous as Berkeley, you quickly join in the agglomeration that is Berkeley " Life " . It becomes assumed and insinuated you will participate in certain rituals and rites that will complete your Berkeley college experience, which include joining different organizations, attending certain functions, and participating in various cam- pus events. Yet as each individual person proceeds through the learning process that is college, Campus evolves though similar, his her experience will be as distinctive as Above, students enter Sather Gate for the start of another school year. Left, the gate is being erected in the year 1910. The gate was built with funding by Jane Sather, in memory of her husband. The gate once signified the begining of campus from Telegraph Ave. and Kittredge St. Archive photo courtesy of Bancroft Library New Photo by Jason Chan Berkeley itself, and that is saying something! And so with that goal in mind, the following section proposes to catch the essence of life for students while hoping to catch a glimpse of each individual persons experience. lire divider i Hot stuff. Posters that show loves, interests, or just asthetically pleasing images are plastered in almost every dorm room. Posters are also great for expressing one ' s own personality. Covering up the bare walls in the dorms was a main priority when getting settled into a new room. Photo by Jason Chan " On move-in day, my friend. Jammer, who is 6 ' 4 ' , 300 pounds, pre- tended to be me. He was rude and pushed my roommate around to freal him out. We went to Taco Bell and he ate all of my roommate ' s food and he took some of my roommate ' s clothes and put them in my closet and offered no explana- tion. This carried on all day, until finally we told him. Needless to say, my roommate was relieved! " Fresh- man Ayman Saad ::m S life With stuffed boxes, heaps of clothing , and their favorite teddv bear. Students were on up moving Pile it on. Carrying boxes stuffed with neccessities, students bring a little bit of home to get comfortable in their dorm room. The first thing students had to tackle when moving in was how to get all their luggage up to their room, which proved to be a problem when a bulding housing 200-f people had an elevator that fit eight. Phoio by Jason Chan Crowded elevators, ten billion flights of stairs, and triple parking were all a part of the joys of moving in. It was a sight to see on August 14, the official move-in day, as long lines of anxious freshmen formed early in the morning waiting to enter their future homes. " 1 got in line at seven in the morning, and the line was still long, " commented first year student Jang Bae. • Once the doors finally opened there was a mad rush fi )r the sign-in tables where keys and other vital information were being distributed. From there it was to the elevator. The 2000 pound elevator maximum weight limit did not seem to be enough as some of the students needed fork lifts for some of their luggage. The amount of luggage some of the freshmen managed to bring was mind boggling. Luckily there were some organizations present to help people move in. " 1 had a lot of stuff, but 1 didn t have too much tn )uble because people from Berkland Church helped me, " said freshman Norma Park. • For those who were too impatient for the two hour elevator wait there was always the stairs; those seemingly endless narrow steps which twisted and turned up eight fiights. " It was a great chance to get some exercise while moving in, " .said freshman .Matt .Mahoney. • A few upper classmen chose to weather another year in the halls. The more experienced upperclass- men started to trickle in later in the day, after the crowds died out and the wait for the elevator was only an hour; some even came a couple of days after. Third year student Kwan Nguyen, a veteran of hall life, offered this piece of sage advice to the freshmen who may choose to return to the dorms next year. " Don ' t unpack anything during the summer, that way you have everything ready to go when August rolls around. " • Copy by Brian Kang moving in The virtues of dorm life: the family, the friends and the noise. It was all part of ivina in the halls " It ' s kind of like camp. Bunk beds, no parents, crowded living, communal eating. But you don ' t go home at the end of the week, " explained Julie Rinard, freshman. This was quite evident on move-in day, as new students said eageriy anticipated, tearful, or indifferent good-byes to their parents and moved intoabuildingfullofstrangers. As eachstudentluggedtheirsuitcasestotheirnewdurm rooms, visions of mentally unstable roommates and grade D meat ran through their heads. " I was pretty wary of the donii food from day one. All I can tell you is that now I ' ve gained a new respect for rice, " commented freshman Wendi Sieboid. • Along with a host of other mind-opening experiences were the coed bathrooms. " I never knew how exciting it would be to take a shower next to the man of my dreams, " recalled Erica Zamora, freshman. • Each dorm had it ' s own personality: the palatialliving situations of Clark Kerr and Foothill, the social atmospheres at Units I and III, and of course Unit II, or " the ghetto " as it was affectionately called. Some students opted to take the single-sex route, sacking out at Stem or Bowles. ' Wherever the location, dorm living offered unique experiences that couldn ' t be matched, even at summer amp. • " One time I was walking down my hall at Unit III and I heard some really loud music playing from somebody ' s room, " rec;illed freshman Craig Carlock. " Unable to resist Green Day, I just started dancing. Pretty soon our whole floor was out in the hall, rocking out. We got a bit scared when our RA turned the comer, but he just looked at us for a few seconds, then started dancing! " • Like those long-gone days of crafts and archery, dorm living was a time to make friends and experience a taste of freedom . • Copy by Heather Bradley A " 10 life Any mail?

Games and general conversation with other residents was what made living in the dorms a memorable experience. Pholo by Jason Chan Getting accustomed to dorm life meant sharing bath- rooms with, sometimes, up to 30 people (In this case only two had to go at the same time). In coed bathrooms, students also got used to sharing facilities with the opposite sex. Photo by Susie Cho dorm lift ' II By foot, by bike or by any set of wheels, there is always a way to go the long haul On packing up and leaving for Berkeley, I can honestly say that the article that I would miss most at home would be my car. But they told me that I wouldn ' t need one once I was in college, which has proven to be true, just as long as I never plan on venhiring further than the campus. By hving in a residence hall, classes, shopping and entertainment were just steps away, and a Bart ticket could take you anywhere else you needed to go in the bay area. Actually, all that was necessary in getting around were your two feet and a good pair of shoes. The campus bus system as well as the tran sit bus Unes allowed students to get to hirther spots safer and a bit faster. • Yet, some feU that it was necessary to have more rapid modes of transportation. Automobiles, mopeds, and motorcyles raced through the streets near campus occasionally slowing for the humble pedestrian or a much sought after parking space. Having their own vehicle was a luxury, and I must say I am jealous of the freedom to make a quick grocery stop or hop across the bay at a moments notice. But car owners did have to pay the expenses of gas and aparking permit, as well as headaches in finding a parking space. Another way of getting around was by bike, yet, acmal bicycle riding was prohibited on campus. Yet no matterwhat the distance, students found away to get around where they needed to go. • Copy by Catherine Leung 12 life Roller derby.

Photo by Hope Meng " I realized how much I underesti- mated the impor- tance of having a car, so I bor- rowed my R.A. ' s car without her explicit permis- sion. She gave me the keys to retrieve something from her car, so I sent my roommate out to the grocery store. When she asked me for her keys I had to explain that her car was not exactly still in the parking lot (oops). I think she ' ll be mad at me for life. " Freshman Gate Smith gcltiiig around I:] Gateway to west. The majestic sight of the Golden Gate Bridge is probably San Francisco ' s most prominant landmark. The bridge has linked San Francisco and Marin County for over fifty years. To many, the bridge ' s beauty and grace embodied the " Bay Area " lifestyle. Pholo by Kim Steinbacher San-fran style.

From Berkeley, one can see the Bay Bridge come alive at night. The bridge also serves as the gateway to the " city " for people living in Berkeley. Photo by Kim Steinbacher With the wharf, shops, restaurants, the possiblities are endless in the City by the bay " It ' s 50 cold here. In LA., this would be, like, w er. " " What is ' The City ' ? San Francisco? Don ' t be so vague. " Living in the Bay Area is a new experience for some who have come to Berkeley, but for others, hanging out at the Haight, taking in a 49er.s game at Candlestick Park, or frequenting coffee shops at 3 a.m. is routine. If they brave the fog, Berkeley students may find a variety of activities and entertainment any day of the week. • Leafing through such local papers as the Bay Guardian, S.F. Weekly, or the dependable San Francisco Chronicle, students can find concerts and nightclubs to fit any taste. Students checked out everything from the Rolling Stones to the Counting Crows at the Bay Area ' s many amphitheaters. The Edge, the DNA lounge, and the Sound Facton- offer alternative and house music for those over 21, while the Palladium and Club X offer exciting alternatives to f rat parties for the 18 and overset. • When the disoriented, alchohol-hazed state of euphoria has lost it ' s zip, students feed their mtellectual side by attending some of San Francisco ' s fine museums and cultural centers. The San Francisco Symphony, The Academy of Sciences, and the Art Institute satisfy the most highbrow student. Other fringe benefits of living in the Bay Area are the safe and convenient BART .system, the lovely weather, and the diversity that such a large city offers. The endless variety and exciting events draw even the most die-hard phvsics majors out of their room. • Copy by Heather Bradle] ' living in (he bay area 13 IB lilo Riling up a crowd is more than just leading a cheer, ::::: interview withamicman ow would you like to be walking through campus one day, and have people yelling " Chunk " at you? ell, Jeff B.

All students new to Berkeley are invited to join in for a night of dancing and meeting new friends at the Chancellor ' s Reception. Each year Chancellor Tien holds a reception for ail incoming freshmen and junior transfers. It is a chance to meet new people, to dress up, and dance to music provided by a DJ. It provides new students with a friendly, open environment, the main goal of which is to introduce students to new people and to make them feel welcomed. • Upon arrival at the reception, each student is issued a name tag which has also written where that student is from. Students stand in line to wait and see the Chancellor. At the front of the line, each student is paired with a fecult - member who leams a little about the student and can tell the Chancellor something about that student when they meet. At the ver ' front of the line, students are greeted by the Chancellor and Mrs, Tien and welcomed to the University. Next, a senior student takes the new student into the dance room and attempts to introduce them to new people. If all goes well, students are introduced to many new students and, hopefully, make new friends. Food and drinks are also provided after one is tired out from dancing and mingling. • The reception is a one-time oppoaunity for new students to be in a room entirely filled with other students trying to adjust to college life and finding their way around the campus. Many feel similar feelings of excitement mingled with apprehension. The reception gives these students a chance to realize they are not alone and to come in contact with others with whom they can relate. • Copy by Anna Fenner { i 18 life Love at first SIGHT.

Without parents constantly nagging, " Clean your room! " the task is often ignored by students on their own. With their own apartment, students debated between which chores were more neces- sary, cleaning their room or talking on the phone. Photo by Jason Chan 20 life I 1 Part of the Cal learning experience is dealing with Lounging around. After a long day of classes, all some students want to do is relax In front of their television. By living In an apartment, students could have privacy, something that living at home or in a dorm could not offer. Photo by Jason Chan 0( finding a place of our own Living in an apartment is always an adventure in the making. After a year fighting for a sink in the wild and crazy co-ed bathrooms of Unit I, anyone would be desperate to seek out an apartment off campus. Yet to the unwary apartment dweller to-be. he is about to embark on an adventure called " The Game of Life. " • Getting an apartment with a view of the Bay may seem like a faraway dream for some, but for many students merely a fact of life. They sought to flee the noise and the lack of privacy that epitomized dormitorv ' life, and found those lovely Southside apartments with two bedrooms, a bathtub, and a view - however obscure - of the Bay. Best friends get involved, and next thing you know you will be house-mates. These students truck up old TV .sets and worn couches that their parents willingly parted with, and learned how to dress up boxes to look like tables. For the first few blissful days, apartment life IS paradise. ...and then it hits them. What do you do with the dirty piles of dishes? How do you get food back into the fridge? And who ' s going to clean up the bathroomi!! Suddenly, reality setdes in, and the joy of apartment living becomes an adventure in housework. From dishwashing and shopping to vacuuming and toilet .scrubbing (yuck), numerous chores that students have unlearned during their stay in the dorms returned to their daily schedules. Yet afterall the toil and the pain, the apartment looks inviting once more, and it ' s worth all the effon because it ' s theirs. It may be small, and it may be expensive, but it ' s a place of their own. • Copy by Sbih Chang apartment life 21 Imagine waking up two hours before your earliest class just to be on time . . . Well, that ' s trekking to school For some of us who live in the shadows of the Campanile, a walk of three blocks to get to our morning classes is already too far a trek. Yet for hundreds of students, their journeys are far more excruciating. For those who have found afforadable apartments in San Francisco, quiet flats in El Cerrito, or live with parents in Oakland, getting to school takes enough effort to earn them special distinctions of merit at graduation. Many get up two hours eariier than their peers just to get to the same class. Matt Leung, a civil engineering student, commutes in from El Cerrito everyday. " At first, it was a real pain to get up early to walk to BART. But then you make it a part of your routine, and it turns out I miss less classes than my friends who live in the dorms. " • Public transit is a convenient option for many who commute into Berkeley. AC Transit has many routes that take students to Sproul Plaza, and BART trains stop just a few bocks away from West Gate at Shattuck. Student commuters even get significant discounts on transit fares to encourage students to leave theircars at home. Yet many students choose to fight the traffic and congestion and get to school by driving. Students may purchase permits to park their vehicles in University lots, and numerous parking garages offer monthly discounts for the driving enthusiasts. • Getting to class is only half the journey. The voyage home is often the most difficult. Tired and stressed, they cannot count on a five minute walk home. Congested highways, delayed buses, and standing-room-only BART trains await them before they can drop their bookbags and relax. Makes Southside living seem enviable, doesn ' t it? • Copy by Shih Chang 4 I i 55 22 life Times up. Rushing back to the car before time on the meter expires, students are relieved to see that they haven ' t gotten a parking ticket. By driving to campus, students not only had to find an empty parking space, but make sure that they remember to put more quarters in the meter. Pholo by Jason Chan This is my stop. With a route to anywhere in the Bay Area, students use the AC Transit system as their way of getting from point A to point B. With discount passes, this mode of transportation seemed more practical and conve- nient than driving a car. Photo by Jason Chan Do THE BART.

Quarters for the washing machine? Get a job. • From the ASUC Bear Store to the Education Psychology Libran,- in Tolman, employees are needed to perform many different tasks all across campus. Each library, including Moffitt, Doe. and any of the 20+ branch libraries, needs students to ser ' e as security monitors, check-out clerks, help in shelving and re-shelving books and many other functions. The libraries have to be kept running smoothlyso students can use the innumerable resources available to them there effectively. • The many different small stores that make up the ASUC Bear Store need employees as well. Be it selling Cal sweatshirts or selling food, working in the Sweet Greetings, Bear Electronics, Bear Bytes, or any fjfthe other areas ofthe Bear Store, reliable employees are in demand. • Another option open to students is participation in the Night Escort Sendee. After undergoing a training period, escorts work nights walking students back to their dorms or apart- ments so students do not take the risks of walking home alone at night. There are also five campus restaurants plus three others affiliated with the campus that are privately owned (The Bear ' s Lair, Cafe Grace, and the International House Dining Services) that need diligent workers to keep them running smoothly. • There are many job opportunities on campus available. It is up to the individual student to seek out those which seem the most interesting. • Copy by Anna Fenner work on i ampiis 2.)

You think you can get by without it until necessity hits you like a locomotive from Wells Fargo. Take me for example. I thought it would be a simple matter to live with no money; I wouldn ' t eat out ever, 1 wouldn ' t buy any tapes, I wouldn ' t buy any clothes, and never, ever would 1 call my girifriend. After eating at Bongo or Li Burrim almost even ' other night, doubling my tape collection, a couple new sweaters and jeans, and a $ 16358 phone bill, I was tied up and naked on the proverbial train tracks. Of course none of this was my fault; I mean, how was I to know that Amoeba had such a large jazz section? Or that twent ' hours on the line to Phoenix was so expensive? • Rather than whining (or giving up my biweekly falafel plate and audio cassette), I decided to suck it in and got a job at a local, much-frequented, semi-famous pizza joint which, for libel reasons, will remain nameless. Fortunately for me, I chose the most messy, exhausting job in recorded history - a pizza delivery walker, I learned what it means to come home with legs dead from twenty consecutive trips to the I-House and Unit III. 1 discovered a new cologne from topping countless pies (try eau de pineapple, ham, olives, onions, pepperoni, sausage, and feta cheese: quite compelling). I discovered that college kids are some of the most cheapskated, disrespectfiji tightwads I ' ve ever met; they don ' t tip wonh jack (and don ' t think I ' ll forget, Jennifer in 3A30 Foothill LaLoma South). I also found some pretty cool new friends, students and non-students, and I think I may have learned the valueofahard- earned dollar (say this in your most phlegmy, parched middle-aged grandpa voice) . Plus I must have reduced my years of indentured service to my parents by at least twelve. • Copy by John B. Lin 2li life On a break.

The Californians and the UC Rally Committee are responsible for many of the activities of the week geared to promote Cal spirit. The week started off with a bang when the popular kickoff parade was brought back from a few years hiatus. The parade marched through downtown Berkeley , headed up Telegraph Avenue and spilled into Sproul Plaza for a noontime rallv.

Although there was a controversy surrounding the size of the bonfire (which was a bit smaller this year), Cal spirit still could be felt emanating strongly from the theater crowds. Many alumni came to show their colors as well, and even a few participated in the festivities, leading the crowd of thou.sands in the traditional Cal cheers.

Some observers may even call hera RSF bum. Only in her first year at Cal, Cecily Vizas has already made the Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) her sanctuary, As a novice member on the Cal women ' s crew team, she feels the pressure to be in top physical form. Yet Cecily ' s motivations to make this ritualistic trek down to the RSF comes not from the urgings of her coach or her team- mates. As competitive as intercollegiate sports can often be, this 18 year-old freshman has kept her focus set squarely on her own agenda. Seeing her give the Concept II Rowers of the Fitness Room a real workout for the university ' s money, it soon becomes evident that the drive to keep fit comes entirely from herself • Cecily, like many others on campus, has found Berkeley to foster a very conducive atmosphere for health consciousness and ath- letic participation. " In the dorms, there are sign-ups for intramural sports and other activities. Sports are highly encouraged on campus. " With thousands of students exploiting the numerous athletic facilities like the RSF, the Hearst and Spieker pools, Clark Kerr volleyball and Haste- Channing tennis courts scattered on and off campus, Cecily ' s passion of working out seems to be shared by many students. Names of Computer Science majors and Dramatic Arts graduate student take their place alongside Cecily ' s on the equipment sign-up sheets in the Fitness Room. • Asked why she comes down to fight the crowds lining up for the rowers on a busy Tuesday night, Cecily offers a simply explanation. " After I ' m done, I feel ver ' relaxed. So when I leave the RSF, I have a lot more energy to do everything else in my life. " There are undoubtedly many who come to the RSF to improve their self-image, by bulking up for others to admire, but she claims that working out " does little to improve [her] self confidence. " Although she concedes that " images of perfect bodies circulating in the media are always on the everybody ' s mind, " Cecily believes that her motivations to spend her hours generating hundreds of watts on the rowers come from her desire to stay healthy.

Jo cringed at the awful arc of the basketball he threw in the air. Though most of the time, a basketball player would be happy hearing a " swish " following a jumpshot, he wrinkled his face at the lousy attempt. The sound was produced not because of dead-center accuracy, but because the orange ball merely grazed the nylon net as it went flying by the backboard instead of actually going through the rim first. • Basketball is somewhat of a passion for many students like Jo, future star walk-on for Cal ' s great teams. For those who share the passion and need to fine-tune their skills before fame arrives, there is always the RSF, Berkeley ' s fresh, modem Recreational Sports Facility. The three separate gyms can accommodate the large numbers who frequent there. On weekends, there are always games going on in the afternoon. Often players will team up for five-on-five competition where the winner is first to reach eleven points (each basket being wonh only one point). Those with less ability are content to sit on the sidelines and watch, though anyone can gather a team and get in a game. The games are extremely competitive and exciting featuring players with suprising skill; high on the backboards are green signs posted for those who glance at them flying by which read " NO DUNKING " . • If you ' d rather practice or warm up instead of rushing into a game, there are always some backboards open or someone shooting around you can join.

Many students are unaware, how- ever, of the variety of housing opportunities available through the University Students ' Cooperative Association. Consisting of 13 houses and twoapartment complexes, tlie co-ops offer several types of living arrangements varying from vegetarian to all female houses. Rochdale and Fenwick, the USCA ' s apartment buildings, offer students the chance to live in an apartment-like setting, while still enjoying the camaraderie of cooperative living. Completely student- owned and operated, the co-ops are an alternative to costly and often restricting domi-life. • Jennie Reboh of Sherman Hall said she chose to live in the co-ops as a sort of happy medium between the dorms and her own apartment. " I didn ' t like the limited social sphere an apartment of my own would have offered me, but I ;ilso didn ' t want to live in the dorms with so many people younger than myself " said Jennie. " I also like the fact that I live in a house, rather than an institutional-looking building. I feel more at home knowing I have my own kitchen to use in the middle of the night if I feel like it. That ' s something the domis can ' t offer, " she continued. • Just as its name suggests, living in the USCA is a group effort. Members of each house are responsible for contributing five hours of work each week. Tasks range from cleaning the bathrooms to cooking dinner. Most co-opers agree that being an active part of their house ' s environment fosters a strong sense of community within its members. • As a result of these activities, the sense of community within the houses and the system itself make living in the co-ops a completely unique expenence. • Copy tn ' Jena Valdez • 0 m lile Betty crocker.

Yes, the need for money equals the need for a job. Looking for work can be a very harrowing experience. You have to be able to convince any future employer that you are the one, the only one, suited for the job. You must he able to explain why no one else flips burgers the way you do or why no one else can sell the product quite the same way. • When it becomes obvious that a job i.s definitely in vour future, you begin looking for " Help Wanted " signs, asking friends if they know of openings, and looking through newspapers. Then there are the applications to fill out and, possibly resumes to write. Once these are completed and turned in, those who seem qualified are called in for interviews. Interviews can be very stressful. The prospect of an interview can be even more frightening than the interview itself as the intensity of the situation is built up in your mind and you imagine with anticipation the barrage of questions the interviewer is sure to hurl your way. Hopefully, when all is said and done, you will have landed a job. If not, the process begins again. • Another option open to students is the chance to be an intern. Internships include both paid and volunteer positions, may earn student academic credit, andean sometimes be found in the student ' s area of study and aspired career. Information about opportunities to serve as a intern can be obtained at the office of Careerand Graduate School Services. • Finding a job may not be easy, but It is possible. It may require a great deal of effon on the paa of students, but if they keep at it, they are sure to find a job working on campus, in the community, or as an intern. • Copy by Anna Fenner lonkinvtoi-HJflb t7 Mochas lattes.

The flower-child days of the rebellious Sixties maybe a thing of the past, but the students of UC Berkeley still remain loyal to their chemical dependence on... caffeine. For many, students, their first foray into the wonderful worid of espresso stans in one of the Southside cafes. There, the myriad of coffee- related concoctions overwhelms even the most sophisticated student. Yet after the first sip, they are hooked - addicted to not only the frothy delight of a glass of steamy cappuccino sweetened with brown sugar and dusted lightly with cinnamon and cocoa powder, but to the establishments themselves. • The famed lights of Cafe Strada on Bancroft serve as beacons in the night for the College Avenue crowd, guiding them in to sip their espressos under the wood- framed canopy. Just a few blocks away is an( )ther Berkeley coffee institution — Cafe Milano. Its pink stone facadeand its cool yet dark interior proves inviting toeventhecasual passerby, luring the uninitiated into the first floor of Milano where you ' ll find chess players dueling it out with the help of an occasional shot of espresso.

When asked why he doesn ' t see his students in his office, Prof Christopher Larkosh says simply, " when Paris can be two blocks away, why would you ever want to stay in Dwinelle?

It was experienced through talking with other students, getting hands- on learning in a lab, or interaction with the faculty. These are what brought Berkeley students together to learn from each other and formulate their t)wn ideas. We, as Berkeley students, confronted subjects and problems by looking through the different perspectives reflected by the diversity on campus. So maybe we didn ' t have to wait until studying was done to enjoy Berkeley life.

Many find Berkeley ' s to be so competitive that even the smartest student has trouble staying on top of the material. Students who breezed through high school without opening their textbooks find themselves burning the midnight oil just to keep up with the readings. Billy Chan explains, it ' s a problem when you do okay in a class, but you haven ' t learned anything.

And though drug use may seem more liberal in Berkeley when compared to any other place, it is more commonly done as a recreational activity than anything else. So it happens that students may try a hit or shoot up for the first time just to in ' it. Then again, some don ' t. There are the stories such as DK ' s, an undeclared second year who only wished to be identified as such to avoid the stigma. DK ' s use wasn ' t recreational and he didn ' t first tr ' it in Berkeley. " I always figured that I ' d stop doing stupid things when I got to college. I figured that I did them because I was bored. Then I found out I was wrong. That ' s when I got scared. " • It wasn ' t like a one day realization. The thought had been plaguing him for some time. Maybe it was the fact that lecture was a once-a-month occurrence, or that fact that when he attended discussion he was so high he wouldn ' t remember what class it was for. Regardless of all the indications, it wasn ' t till a bad experience landed him the hospital that DK realized enough was enough. • A hit ofsome bad acid, ironically purchased at People ' s Park, caused some horrendous hallucinations that caused him to scamper up the nearest tree to avoid, what he beleived was, a ground swarming with roaches and assorted bugs. It was when the branch, too thin to support him, snapped that he tumbled to the ground and broke his arm in three different places and was knocked unconscious that gave him a free ride to Alta Bates. • " ' When I think about it, it makes me furious. How could I have been so stupid? I could ' ve hurt someone, I could ' ve killed myself What would my parents think, after working so hard just to get me here? There was so much I wasn ' t thinking about. I guess no one ever figures it will get that bad. " • Sadly it does, and all this in his first year. DK is happy to report that the following summer of 1994, he told his parents he was going to go to summer school but really went to a rehab center to detoxify himself Since then he says the worse thing he ' s done is a few beers now and then with some friends. Though it seems as if the worst part is behind him, DKsays every day is hard. " There isn ' t one day when I don ' t get a minor craving to get high. Then there ' s the days when I really feel I need one. But if there ' s one thing I learned from all this, it ' s that getting high is the last thing I need. " As I close the interview with DK, he gave me a weak smile. I could tell having to rehash the whole story was a difficult thing to do.

Other academic groups are organized around common majors, such as the Association of Psychology Undergraduates, MSEA and SCIBUGS. And then there are the academic groups for the elite, where members must meet certain GPA require- ments, as in the Pre-iMedical Society. • Academic group activities include socials where professors and students alike can meet, which is a great chance to make connections. These groups become a forum for students to discuss their academic difficulties as well as finding helpful ways to alleviate them. All in all, academic groups were a beneficial source for students to meet others and become a strong contributor to the activity life at Cal. • Copy by Catherine Leung 8S % lile The As u( iatiuii ol PNyiiKiloo) 1 iidcroiaduativs Date established: 1969 President: Miranda Gabriel Activities: Faculty Reception, TA Reception, GRE with Kaplan, study groups for psychology classses, peer couseling, forums, social events © JL ' - « rt ( hiianos LatiiiiiN in Health Eduialion Date established: 1970 Actvities: Blood drives, Raza Day, Pre-medical conferences, Clinica de la mujer arHdcmir iiniiipN S9 USEA SAMPE llispiinii Sliidcnls in Sricme and Enginmino ail liip h ' ( ' - l( ' (]iral lldiior Sot jety Date established: 1993 President: Arash Da allou Actvities: Provide references for Research Positions, Tutoring in the sciences, on-campus CPR and First Aid Classes, Professor luncheons, Attend National Scientific Seminars, Food and Toy Drive for homeless kids during Christmas Senior (lass ( ouik il Date established: 1874 President: Sunil Gupta Actvities: Commencement Convocation September 1994, May 1995, Chancellor ' s Reception.

It ' s a way of life. It ' s having a home away from home where you can walk in the door and immediately feel welcomed. It ' s finding a niche in a huge campus of 30,000 students. Ten percent of the Cal ' s student body are part of the Greek system, with 18 sororities and over 40 fraternities on campus. The Greek system encompasses people from all backgrounds, including Christians, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latin Americans. Students join a fraternity or sororitv not only for the social aspect, but for common interests, scholarship, housing, and philanthropic activities as well. Members of the Greek system are more than involved in just their individual fraternities and their sororities. They are active partici- pants in sports, honor societies, internships, and clubs. The Greek system has been part of the Cal tradition that will continue to give students the opportunity to experience an important aspect of the college life. • Copy by Jennifer W.

They spend some time at each house to converse with some of the members and form opinions about each of them, while the houses are evaluating them as well. After this initial exposure to the house, the rushee goes home to recuperate after smiling and talking the whole day and then waits for the sororities who were impressed with her to call her back. The aishee then goes back to the houses she wants to and then keeps returning to the ones that invite her back until the end of rush when she has a reasonable idea of which houses she would accept a bid to join. • Fraternity msh is slightly different than soront ' iiish. For staners, it is a less organized affair where the lushees receive a map of the 44 fraternities on campus and then proceed to pick and choose the houses they would like to visit.

New and ere ative ways to pierce one ' s body are being developed every day " Your body is a temple. Do you want your temple to have plain boring walls or do you want to make them realK ' beautiful ' ' " -Reverend Mad Jack. • Recently, the UC Berkeley campus has filled up with people who desire to make their " temples " truly beautiful by obtaining body piercings from the ear to the lip, eyebrow, chin, nose, or even tongue and other body parts like the navel, nipple, or genitals. But the question is, why all of a sudden is even ' one getting their body parts pierced, and what makes it so appealing to some and repulsive to others? • In fact, there are several reasons behind body piercing. There are those who have done it purely because it has become a fad to have different exposed body parts pierced. For others, it is strictly a personal and private thing. These may include genital piercings, or piercings which are hidden from public view. The other one percent of the population, which is part of the " primitive movement " , pierce for ritualistic reasons. • Overall, the most common reason people pierce seems to indicate a rite of passage into adulthood. After entering college, many students feel that they have to do something different, or rebellious since they ' ve left the constraints of their parents. Another option would possibly be getting a tattoo, but piercing is often times preferred since it can be easily removed with little or no scarring. • For those who turn away in disgust at the idea of piercing, it is mostly because they imagine how much pain they would have to endure to get it done. According to junior Anne Martin, who has her navel pierced, " The pain was not as bad as 1 had imagined. " For junior Mike Kiitz, who has his nose, nipple, and genitals pierced " the pain represents a coming of age - a sort of ritual rite of passage. Now that piercing is becoming popular and more accepted many people just do it to follow the fad. When the fad has passed those people will probably remove them.

" My bo riend is always trying to get me to do it at the stacks. " Said 4th year IB major who said she would rather not be identified. " He says it ' s exciting. I think he ' s a bit strange.

Pholo by Jason Chan 110®imes Students in search of financial help need only to go as f ir as Sproul or University Hall time of need College is expensive. Any university student will agree with that. Yet in the last few years, college has become increasingly more expensive for people attending any one of the nine UC campuses. As a result of the economicdifficulties plaguing the state of California over the past fcwyears, the amount of money allocated to California ' s public universities has sharply decreased. This in turn has led to an increase in annual fees and an even greater demand for financial aid for current university students and for all incoming students. The results? Fewer high school graduates can afford to go to college. This will not help to decrease California ' s overall unemployment rates. Students who cannot get an education have access to fewer, lower paying jobs than those who can. This results in a widening of the gap between the rich and the poor. • As state funds have decreased, theamount of money the colleges have available for financial aid has diminished. Financial aid packages offer fewer and fewer grants and scholarships and more and more loans. While students may be able to afford school with the help of loans, in a few years they will be saddled with a large debt which C( )ul(l take years, if not a lifetime, to pay off. • An ' ( )nc who has ever had t( ) deal with the bureaucracy at the Financial Aid office knows how difficult it can be to get assistance. The growing number of students requiring aid reflects higher costs. A decrease in financial aid awards only exacerbates the problem. This in turn leads to longer lines in Sproul and University Halls and added frustrations for everyone. • As costs have increased and financial aid has decreased, many students with great potential have had to turn down a UC education. A reduction in staff has also occurred as the university has received less money to pay their salaries. In the fight over the California budget, higher education has been dealt a severe blow. If this trend doesn ' t reverse soon, the need will be more than UC can handle. And time is running out... • Copy by Anna Fenner rinanriHlaid ( Ml heaven or hdl? In search of a little redemption?

With a loss of numerous key players at the beginning of the season due to injun-, the inside linebacker and tight end positions were left in a state of chaos, while Dave Barr, senior quarterback, was out the second half of the season with a broken left collarbone. The team had a strong fight ahead of them, but recovered remarkably and put the slow start behind them as the season progressed. • One of the most outstanding aspects of the team that aided in their comeback was the dynamic defense. The program has traditionally been known as having mostly an offensive strength with .m average of over thirty points per game in the 1990 ' s, but the defense came out better than ever during the .season. The defense began the season allowing an average of only 14.2 points per game and condnued to get stronger. • Complementing the shining defense, the offense has also been able to rise to the top with a continued success in their ability to run the ball. The running plavs were not always made at the crucial point of third or fourth downs, but I he yardage that the team gained was a positive force. • Even with the obstacles make way for a raging football season with fans, players, and alumni on their feet and driving for a prosperous season that faced them, the team was able to bring home another spirited and energy filled season to the fans, to the alumni, and to themselves and their school. The win over Stanford in the annual Big Game at the end of the season showed that, no matter what teflhers are in their path, the Bears will always come out on top. • Copy by Trad Brown Flying high.

We are really excited about this season and expect to do well again this year. " Changes includes practices being moved off campus onto grass (to keep injuries to a minimum) and completely reworking the fitness regimen for all the players.

He wanted a new training schedule that would better prepare his players. • Although moral was low from last season ' s disappointing numbers, the players were ready to take on their games with renewed enthusiasm.

In addition to 3H their Ail-American, the women ' s team had numerous top runners fighting for i the first spots, especially with two of the team ' s winners from last year, Darcy Bushnell and Stephanie Linnen, out on leave. " There ' s definitely a core of I experience and leadership returning " , said Sandoval. • The team competed in events such as the Fresno Invitational, the Aggie Invitational, the Stanford Invi- tational, the Cal Poly SI.O Invitational, the Pac-10 Championships and the NCAA Championships. Races average about five kilometers for the women and eight kilometers for the men. The team worked out together and the runtiers worked out individually on a daily basis. The determination of the runners is one of the greatest strengths of the team, (continued on following page) (TOSS (niinlrv trark 1 IS7 (continued from prmous page) The dri e that they have to hit one of the top five spots on the team and the number one place in competition gives the runners the goals that they need to push through their ultimate abilities. • The Track Team had as much success as the aoss countrv ' team did. Track and Field is one of the most renowned teams in Cal history. Since the Track and racing to gain much deserved national rankings, runners give evervthing they have and push to be first at the finish line Field team was first established, it has boasted 152 All-Americans, 1 NCAA team championship. 29 XCM indi idual championships. 26 world records, and 12 Ohmpic Medalists. The team was no different in its tremendous accomplish- ments this season. The team trains in both sprinting and distance events, and field events. The 100. 200. 400. relay, and hurdle sprinters are powered by their agility and technique. Longer distances like the eight hundred meter and mile mark the best runners with practice to build strength and endurance. Field events like the long jump, the triple jump, the high jump, the shotput, and th e pole vault require both the agility of the sprinters and die strength of the distance runners. • The team practices on a rigorous schedule in both the fall and the spring at the Track and Field Stadium on campus. The track and field team is one of the largest intercollegiate teams on campus and was pow- ered by a combination offireshmen. sophomores, juniors, and seniors. • Cher- all, both the Track and Field and Cross Countrx- teams prospered with great season accomplishments. • Copy by Trad Brown IHSM sports Off he goes.

With only three staning players lost to graduation last year, Codevilla, Swanbeck, and Green, the experience of the returning players will be a strong asset to the team. • With mostly dual meets during the season, the team had many chances to pro c that iheir na- tional rankings were well earned. The team started out its winning streak with only two losses against the Canadian University of Victoria and University of British Columbia. They finished the .season with the Pacific Coast Collegiate Championships, the National Collegiate Scmi-Finals and the Natioanal Colle- giate Championships, all at Berkeley. • The outstanding beginning at the start of the season was a confidence booster that the team took advantage of. The shutout in their first game against St. Marj- ' s, 50-0, and the shutout mid season against UC Davis, 33-0, were just the beginning. The team went on to conquer their opponents for the rest of the season giving everything they had to pursue another national ranking. Rugby, the oldest spon at Cal, here since 1882, is surely one of the strongest. • Copy by Tract Brown rutfbv 191 Smashing it.

The collegiate division has a rigorous, year-round practice schedule to compete against other big-name hockey schools, like UCLA and Stanford. The recreational club offers individual a chance to learn ice hockey basics and an opponunity to enjoy the game as a competitor.

I remember feeling that these people are so luckv to be here. Who would have guessed that four years later I ' d be here walking on campus as a student. Berkeley was so far distant from all that I ' ve anticipated. I gradu- ated high school with a 1.8 GPA, but that was because the sociological environment wasn ' t sup- portive for me at all. Battle One came in high school, when I had to fight the pressures to conform to the stupid people around me, through which I had to learn that I could be " myself. " After that, I realized that I ' d never want to feel oppressed again. It had bothered me to the point where my grades were suffering. By then I was only expecting to receive a two-year communitv college education, since I had a low GPA and I was from a working-class back- ground. • By the time I got to junior college, Battle Two came, when I started to come out to mvself about my homosexuality. That was an immense battle that took me three years to fight. Yet from the first day of college, I realized that all mv life I had been living in a tunnel.

After brainstorming, we thought that not only was preserv- ing a record of this year ' s graduating Seniors important, but that preserving a record of the campus buildings as they appeared in 1995 was important as well. So we did a little research, took a few pictures, and tried to come up with some interesting histories. Unfor- tunately, space limited us to the num- ber of buildings we could cover, but we tried to pick the most interesting, the most popular, as well as the most ob- scure buildings on campus. We also came up with a " Recognizability " scale, rated from 1 to 10 (1 being totally un- nameable and 10 being the most well- known buildings on campus). Look for boxes like this one throughout the sec- tion highlighting campus architecture. Enjoy!

( oiitiiiiii ' il Iroiii ui»v ' 2U ' 2 from ihere because the college I was attending was a c( )mpletely different social atmostphere than what Ihadgrownupin. I got along with everybody there, and my grades finally went up to a 3. H. which led me to think about transfering to San Francisco State. • So 1 went to this college fair and I thought I ' d swing by the Berkeley table. 1 assumed that lei need a 4.0 to get in there, and 1 was about to walk away- walk away from my life. Yet I decided to go back and ask some questions abt)ut Berkelcw The rejiresen- tative said that I was a competitive candidate and so I applied. All 1 thought was that 1 wt luld be closer to my family, and that it wouldn ' t hurt to be in the best UC campus. Yet 1 also thought that if I didn ' t get in, there would always be SF State. I didn ' t know the difference then, hut now as an intern at the I ' C Office of the President, 1 know that ! would have been trading a million-dollar education for but a token. Big difference. • 1 consider my Berkeley experience to be a broadening of my awakening, because it just opened up my horizons immensely. The reason why Berkeley has been an awakening is because I have learned so much more here. The first day I got here during Cal Student Orientation, they asked how many of us are going to grad .school. Logical question for me was " what ' s graduate school? " I had just received my Associate Degree ContiiiuiMl on pagii 2UB seniors 2(1:1 Awakening. . . ( ' onliiiiiiMl t ' ruiii pagr 20.1 and I thought I ' d just get my BAand then get out and look for a job. So I took a class called " How to Get Used to Berkeley, " and the following semester I took a class on " How to Get Out of Berkeley and Into Grad School. " I ' ve always been willing to open my mouth, and I think that ' s been crucial to my success and awakening here. I ' ve always been extremely willing to ask for help. I believe that if you have a question, just ask. Most people are really willing and happy to help you. I got into Berkeley by talking to people. I ' ve gotten through Berkeley by asking questions and by networking. Here on the Berkeley campus, I ' ve learned how to network. I ' ve learned to never take anything for granted. So when I hear people in class who hiss and tisk when others ask questions, I just want to turn around and say " hey, I ' m paying for this! " It ' s important to realize that Berkeley isn ' t a place to take for granted. It took me such hard work and diligence to get there. • Ihave learned to always understand that my future plans can change. Anything can happen , so j ust work hard now and seize the opportunities at hand. I ' m tr ' ing to get into Phi Beta Kappa, starting on an internship with KGO TV, continuing to work in UC Office of the President writing the travel guide for the whole UC system, and I ' m doing my honors thesis.

This semester I ' m writing on how the media reinforces minority stereotypes, which is in itself a broadening of my previous thesis on gay stereotypes. In short, Berkeley has just broaden my horizons so much, because I realized that there are so many opportunities out there. It ' s unbelievable! • Yet Berkeley, in a way, was another battle that 1 had to engage in. The facultv and the teaching staff are wonderful, because they are genuinely liberal, but the student body has so many divisions that it was hard to carve out mv own niche without falling into a stereotype. You have student groups for every affiliation you can possibh- think of. It gets to a point where vou might as well just start individual groups for the individual. So I didn ' t want to join anything ethnically or culturally specific. I just .see so much division on campus that I think it creates even more divisions. I believe this extends even to people who are gay. That ' s the ultimate battle that 1 faced at Berkelev, Battle Three. ' W ' hat I realized is that all the ethnic, racial, religious, socioeconomi- cal and other divisions that exist out there in main- stream societv also exist within gay communities. They ' re socialized in the same way as everyone else in society, and they carr} ' the same prejudices with them into the gay communitv. They ' re no different. I had this naive vision that these people are going to ( ' nntiniicil on pagi ' ' 2Ul spnini ' s ; 2(19 Awakening. . . ContinuiMl tioiii puge 209 be much more supportive than the oppressive soci- et ' I grew up with in high school. In a way I ' ve had to regressed to fit in here. The average age in my community college was 27 and the average age here is 20. The maturity level is equally reflected. I ' ve rushed a house, and I thought originally that it would be a lot of fun. It was cool, but it just wasn ' t me anymore. I outgrew it. So I decided to devote my energy elsewhere and that ' s why I ' ve devoted myself to the Senior Class Council, the Cal Alumni Association, and to coordinate the Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Mentorship Program. This was an organi- zation that I thought was important for providing role models to help kids realize that being open about their homosexuality doesn ' t have to be a detriment. I myself don ' t make an issue out of my sexuality, and I don ' t advertise it like the radical left- wingers. I don ' t try to hide it either, of course. It took me that long to under stand that there are stupid people everywhere, who are stupid because they are insecure about their own identity and have to treat others in a detrimental manner in order to fulfill their false sense of self-esteem. It ' s just so wrong, and since then I ' ve realized that our role in society should be to help people who have more problems than we do, and to help ourselves attain happiness without hurting others. • Through mv Cunliiiiit d un piii»i ' ' J.l- Thaiz R.

There ' s nothing wrong with idealism, and I have a lot of that which I can bring to better society. • I think the most exhilarating part about Berkeley is still going on. Now is the most exciting time at Cal for me. I am finally getting used to the campus, I ' ve established myself here, and yet I ' m also getting ready to leave. This place is just so well known and holds such a great reputation, I defi- nitely am happy to have been here. 1 have no regret in the worid for coming here. But now I ' m looking to grad school, my internship at KGO for publicity and events, my UCOP internship in communica- tions, and I ' m also holding two classes down and an honors thesis. So that ' s why this semester is so climactic for me. ' VChile others are getting senioritis, I ' m keeping busy. This is the most exciting period of my Cal career.

I had originally gotten accepted into MIT and Stanford, but I didn ' t have $21,000 per year to spend. You see, I come from a very impoverished family, second generation immigrant. I knew from a young age that I would have to finance my own higher education. So that prettv much eliminated the expen- sive schools from my choices unless I received a Rill scholarship. The three boys of the family slept in the same 12x12 room, and though my brothers weren ' t all 64 " like me, we were all pretty big for such a small room. My parents ingrained in me the philosophy that mv mind desen ' ed nothing but the best, and that 1 should go to the best school that I can possibly go to. Berkeley has no peer. MIT is a good school for computer science and engineering, but it is just a technical school. I wouldn ' t get the breadth, the richness of education, that I ' d get here. Overall, Berkeley ' s ver ' stR)ng. AdditionalK ' , I wanted to work as an engineer to pay my way through school, and this area has so many high-tech jobs. If I went to MIT I ' d never be in a career position as I am todiiy. I ' m cuirently ( (Hitiiiiird on pauc 221 Lowell J.

My parents always set high standards. But I always set them even higher for mvself I staned pla ing tennis when I was 5 years old.

I came here knowing that I wanted to major in computer science. There wasn ' t any doubt. I ' dalreadybeenworkingasan engineer in the industn- for man ' years before I came to Berkeley. I had taught these necessary engineering skills in a high school for gifted and talented students. I had access to many unique educational opportunities throughout most of my life, usually from outside a formal classroom setting. Of course I took college level courses and labs, but I also de ' oured books like ' ou wouldn ' t believe. As a result I was able to acquire the knowledge to get a real job right out of high school. • The one word to describe my success is stubbornness. At a big university like Berkeley, it is ver ' easy to fall through the cracks, given mysituation. 1 work ftill time, go to school full time. It can be so easy to lose hope and give up. With my working responsibilities I don ' t ha ' e any time for socializing and going to parties. And that ' s the one thing I miss, and regret, that I didn ' t have more ftin here. I will always regret that. Many sacrifices were made for my education. For instance, 1 got a really lucrative job offer for a start-up.

Our stoiy is a bit different in and of itself since we ' re older students, I ' m 2(1 and my sister is 28, and the average age here is about 20. 22. The majority of student.s. I assume, have much of their college education paid for by their parents. For my sister and 1. it makes a big difference paying for college entirely on our own. We have really learned to appreciate it. Since we are older and have already lived on our own, we didn ' t want t( ) stav in the dorms, hut as a result, missed out on an opportunity to meet new people. So it was nice to have a built-in friend here since between us w e only knew a few fellow transfers from College of Marin. That ' s not a lot of people in this school of thousands. • Besides the general age difference, my sister and I are probably distinct from the tradi- tional student on some other points as well. Vie are the first ones to graduate from college in our famih ' . Coming from working class parents who basically grew up on a farm, working was what you were supposed to do. No one went to college, it was not considered and sometimes even discouraged. Our rontiiiiM ' d on page ' 2 ' 4i M ni()i V ■m Together... ( ontiii iit ' d Iroiii page ' 2Ti parents have high school educations and ourgrand- parents an eighth grade education and for them, that was enough. We knew that these days it ' s really important to go to college. However, because of our background, we lacked the knowledge and under- standing about college issues and procedures. For example, when other students were talking about going to graduate school, we shared questions like, " What ' s that? What ' s the GRE? What ' s a statement of Purpose? " Still, we found out what to do and how to do it through the help of the community college, friends and especially each other. So whenever one made mistakes or discoveries, we ' d share that with the other, ' ' e know where we came from so it was really great to be able to relate to one another and have ranting sessions even ' once in a while. • Although some people call us the Butler Twins (though we look nothing alike), our stories aren ' t completely identical. I began working in junior high school, and by high school my schedule was half work and half school even,- day. Once I graduated. I just continued working full time, Ididn ' t think I ' d be going to college. I didn ' t think I could ever afford it and wasn ' t trained to go. After a year of working, I thought maybe I ' d tr - going to a junior college; however, since I had moved away from home, it became necessar ' for me to continue working full ronliiiuiMl on page 2 ' A7 Judy S.

I couldn ' t get any financial aid for going at night, so 1 had to keep working. I finally graduated from Col- lege of Marin with honors and an AA degree. When it became time to transfer. I wasn ' t even going to apply lo UC Berkeley. I had a good GPA at the College of Marin, but I thought, " this is BERKELEY! " But at the last minute I decided to check the box on the application kn ' Berkeley. 1 was all ready to go to UC Santa Barbara, but when 1 was accepted to UC Berkeley too, 1 thought, " Wowl " So 1 packed m - bags and moved to Berkeley ' . • For the most part going to UC Berkeley has been a difficult, yet awe- some experience. When asked if the Berkeley sys- tem had failed me. m - response was that 1 wasn ' t going to let it fail me. It is very easy to get lost on campus (andldont just mean geographically). The whole academic build-up of Berkeley frightened me. It was tough adjusting my first semester here. I went to classes at 8:00 in the morning and stayed at the librar ' until 12 midnight. I never went to anv study groups because 1 feared they would be a waste of valuable time. It ' s also easy to get bowled over b - all the lines ' 0u have to wait in, and that is what I hate most about Cal. All the lines and the bureau- (Hnliniii ' il on page 2- H seniors •1 7 Together...

I ' m used to that now, but at the beginning when eveiyone asked me how school was, 1 just wanted to sa - it was horrible. It seemed all I did was study, stress out and wait in lines. I tliought I had made a huge mistake and should have gone to Santa Barbara and at least have gotten a tan or something. By my .second .semester, though, I thought, " This is cool. I ' ll join this and I ' ll join that... " I just had to catch my breath, take some chances, and do things I had never done before. • So I got involved in the re -entr ' group ( for students 25 years and older) and took a couple of classes. It was comforting to learn that I wasn ' t the only one with those occasional thoughts like, " Oh I don ' t belong here, wh ' am I here? " Plus, unlike a few of the y ounger students, re-entrv students never asked the question, " ' Well, if you ' re not agrad student orTA, what have vou been doing R)r all this time?

My greatest moment may seem small, but is significant tt) me. It was my first semester at Cal and 1 was in this huge lecture class of 2S0 people and finally got my nen ' e up to make a comment. The high point d my day was simply hearing my professor respond to meby saying, " Oh, that ' s an interesting point. " To add to mv jov and amazement, the first paper 1 submitted at Cal came back to me as an A. two little incidents boosted by confidence and helped me realize that YES, I DO belong at UC Berkeley. Unfortunately for me, one negative thing about being a transfer stu- dent is it ' s hard to get really involved in only two years. Extracurricular activities, study groups, and meeting with professors and TAs take up a lot of time, and for working students there is time to spare. No one can relate to that better than my sister. .She had a slightly different experience than 1 had. • She too, has worked since a very young age. However, she got married pretty much right after high school. Afterthat,.shealso worked full timeand went to .school at night, but in addition, had family obligations to deal with. She had to help support her husband all this time so he could attend school full time and as a result she was unable to go full time herself. My sister and I graduated from College of Coiitiiiiicil on |Higr ' IVI seniors Together... (ontinui ' d rroiii iiaoc ' 2ii Marin at the same time, but unfortunately her mar- riage broke up at that time and she has had to support herself alone ever since. As a result of the extra financial burden, she has had to work more than she had anticipated during her time at Cal. My sister works two jobs every semester and over the holidays she takes on a third. Besides managing that full agenda, she must commute to school, which takes even more time out of her schedule. Never- theless, my sister has still achieved success at Berke- ley. Overcoming the various hurdles in her path, she has managed to keep a high grade point average and is even writing an honors senior thesis. I am incred- ibly proud of my sister and her many accomplish- ments not just at Cal, but in her entire life. • I will definitely take away from Berkeley many positive things along with my degree: a better understand- ing of different cultures, a greater love for being surrounded by a diversity of people, new hobbies and interests, and new friends. My advice for those who question whether they belong at Cal, or any- where and anything else that they desire to do, is to never listen or believe those voices that say you can ' t do it.

(Confused and with no clue about what to do next. 1 dialed the telephone number written on a newspaper ad for all the IJC schools. Since my brother and uncle had visited Berkcicv ciurin the 60 ' s and loved it, m ' mother realized that Cal would be a good place to study the English language and to seriously meditate overa change of major. • When 1 came to Berkeley, 1 first went to UC Extension and moved into the International - where I met my future husband. Mcrstaying here for two weeks, m ' dad asked me cn ' er the phone if I would like to pursue a career in the U.S. My answer wasa big YES! At UC E. tension, I attended a lectureabout studying here, and that drove me to see the admissions people at Sproul Hall. They told me that it w( )uld be easier for me togotoa community college first, then t( ) transfer to Cal as a junior. Studying in this counin, ' meant startingfrom zero because noneoftheclasses I completed at the professional school in Buenos Aires were accepted by the school officials. • An- ( ' (intiniied on pagC! 24H seniors ; 245 Painting Away...

I knew some things about Atnerican popular culture, but I could not speak, read or write fluenth ' . While spending the first two years at a local college, the apartment I was renting with m ' btn ' friend burned in the Oakland Hills fire. Even though we lost even ' thing in the firestorm, 1 ha ' e never consid- ered going back home. As a matter of fact, the bond between m - boyfriend and I grew even stronger and in some strange way, I felt I belonged here more than I have ever imagined. That was my first big traumatic experience in the U.S. • The second and hardest task I experienced was overcoming the fear of Cal. Unfortunately, it also became extremelv traumatic. I guess the transition from a suburban communit}- college into a huge and prestigious institution can be challenging fore ' en the strongest person. Here I was at one of the best unnersities in the worid, surrounded by geniuses! The first semes- ter 1 spent at Cal, I was under the impression that even,- single human being walking on campus was an eminence. So, I thought " I am no genius, and I will never be able to complete my degree here, " and " I should drop out. " 1 found myself so lost that 1 even thought of killing m self • 1 was veiy scared.

I was born in San Francisco and grew up in Berkeley since I was 9 years old. It ' s funny because I didn ' t even apply to any other schools. I didn ' t even consider another school. It isn ' t just because I grew up here. Berkeley, in my mind, is one of the best schools in the countr -. If I ' m here with the best, why go somewhere else? I had the best of both worids here - the familiar location and the best school. I feel really comfortable here. I like the attitude at Gal. I especially value the critical thinking that we learn here. If I was to look back at my years at Berkeley, I ' d say that the thing that has changed me the most, that I ' ve gotten out of Berkeley, is my ability to think critically. I don ' t know that I had developed it that well before I came here. I ac- cepted what I was taught, what 1 read, and what I saw. But here you realize that nothing fed to you is necessarily the truth. You ha ' e to figure it out yourself, and I think I ' ve learned to appreciate that. I really have to thank Berkeley for that. • Ithinkthat Berkeley is a really tough school. I really had to crack down on myself and not be lazy.

As far as what I draw fn )m the community, 1 think what ' s so special growing up here in Berkeley is the recognition that there is SO much diversity in this world. There is a realization that you can ' t have stereotypes, and that you can ' t generalize that " people are like this " and " people are like that. " You understand that ever ' one is a little different and you just have to accept them as individuals. • List semesterwas the k )w p( )int of my Cal career.

I had to make a strong argument and they looked at the evidence that I ' d gathered. • The t riti( al thinking and the endurance to work long hours ihat 1 e learned at (ial really helped.

One of ihem was a se.xual harassment case, which actually went through another agency with- out determining cause. The ' had e en written a determination of no, but it wasn ' t completed in time and the jurisdiction was tran.sferred to me.

But the other agency said simply that the prepon- derance of the evidence showed that it didn ' t occur, so there was no cause. Yet the fact that anyone did say that there was harassment, and that the no cause statements were taken there in front of the respondent ' s attorney, just didn ' t look right. A couple of years had passed since those interviews, and most of the women had moved on and were no longer in risk of losing their jobs. So I thought they were more credible now than they were then, and I inter ' iewed the parties involved and did credibility assessment that showed that the alleged bad actor had indeed discriminated. I did more digging and actually found that this guv had been fired from a previous job for this same activity. All this had not been found in the previous investigation. Then I called over 20 of his previous employees during the time this charge was filed and I just got tons of testimonv against him. One person would say " something happened to me, " and another would say of the same incident, " I saw this happen to her. " Same stories. It was so obvious at that point, and 1 turned in a 15 page investigator ' s memorandum. ( ' OnliiiiHMl on paiit 2I I Armando V. Soto English Chicino Studies Joesph J. Sparacio Musk Matthew J.

The experience at EEOC will help, and I also spent a year in India volunteering for a non-profit founda- tion involved with humanitarian efforts. After one year of internship, I expect to start a joint degree program of law and public policy, but probably not in Berkeley. I ' m planningtogo East.

But I do think that 111 look back at Berkeley as truly one of the greatest opportunities of my life. As a springboard for the rest of my life. I would not be in a position to apply to the best law schools if 1 hadn ' t attended Cal. All the things that 1 hope to achieve in my life, I don ' t see myself achieving without having this Berke- le ' education. It ' s really made the difference.

Toussaint-Touson Business Administration My Cal experience was wonderful and joyous. At the same time, it was an ever stressful, tiring experi- ence, where like most students, I wonder if I would be able to fit in, would complete the next paper, or if was able to do all three, because, one of the greatest contributor to mv experiencing academic and social success at Berkeley was that I sought out and utilized the services that UC makes available to all its students. Secondly, I made myself available to my professors. The third reason, is in my ability to persevere. • I found the most difficult time for a reentn ' student is the first semester. Fear of failing is the student ' s constant enemy. The staff in the Business Administration Department helps to mini- mize the difficulties faced by ever ' student admitted into the program. For instance, the alienation an older student may face can be ver ' difficult to overcome. I went into the Haas Scho ol of Business at the age of 49. On average, business students are in their mid-twenties, and they live in a dorm or in an apartment near the campus. Students are able to study together in dorm halls or eat in dining com- mons. • Many times the learning experience does rontiiiiinl on paoc :!n:l Danny S.

The fact that I did not live near the campus, and did not have many social activities in common with m ' peers, made it difficult for us to connect in order for us to enhance our learning experiences. Haas minimized many of m - prob- lems, bv offering me personalized scr ires within their advising department for both academic and social success, iiow large, how impersonal, and how a student can get lost at Berkeley, is all one hears.

I ' ve continued to volunteer as a Class Rep throughout m ' tenure at Berkeley. • There are plenty of resources available for students to tap into, and I believe that it is important for students to keep an open mind and to search out the programs that are suited for them. My experience might have been unbearable, had I not sought them out. I sought the expertise from the Student Life Advising Services (SL S) and Mfirmative Action (AA), and I received exemplar) ' advice. The staffwas very helpful. They acted as guides and directed me to other depart- ments and services that are available to all students.

I became a student peer advisor at DSP. • i am a conscious learner and a searcher of knowl- edge. 1 believe that my ability to persevere was (lri en by my unconditional love for knowledge. At the eariy age of 14, i kn( )w thai 1 wanted to go to UC Berkeley, major in business, and become a CPA, I really wasn ' t prepared, however, and graduated from high school with a l.SO grade point average. According to Ungston Hughes, my dream was de- ferred. • I further believe thai reeniiy students are self-motivated because we are conscious learners. Reentry students have experienced both success and failures in their academic, professional, and personal lives, it is those e.xperiences and their malurit ' le ' els that [irevent most from dropping out once they become active members of an aca- demic community. Theyare focused and can not be detoured from achieving their goals and reaching their destinies. For me, it was essential that I seek to obtain more knowledge in an academic environ- ment. I hungered for it. The UC experience was food for my .soul. As long as I was not being learning, 1 was malnourished. Fulfillment came when 1 com- pleted my studies in December. The greatest mo- ments in mv Cal career were attending the African Colli iniii ' d on |iiiuf 270 scnioi s 2B!I Teaching... ConliiiiKMl rntiii pnoi ' !!ii!l American Studies and the Haas School of Business graduation ceremonies. In general, they were the absolute high point of my life. I realized that fulfilling my dream by participating in the Berkeley experience was a selfish act on my part. However, I am extremely satisfied w iih my selfishness, because 1 have gained skills that I can share with members of my community. • Prior to admittance to Cal, I believed few African Americans choose business as a major. I wanted to be the kind of person who help change that pattern. My initial goals were to obtain a degree in business, teaching credentials, and then teach various business classes within theAfrican American communities. After being admitted to Haas, I discovered that there were less than IS African Americans admitted into the un- dergraduate business department. Today, African Americans make up 2% of the almost SOO students in the undergraduate Business Department. I hope with what I have learned and accomplished here, I can begin to expose many toward this career. • Since attending Berkeley, I have earned an internship in the Ronald McNair Scholarship Program. The internship is a mentor ' s program , and it will give me an opportu- nity to get into a Ph.D. program. Teaching is what I want to give to the community, and teaching and researching are both experiences that await me in the future. I now look forward to these new challenges.

Through the nine months called school there was a myriad of experiences that were never to be duplicated. But that ' s how college life is, always moving forward, never allowing instant replays. But the beauty of it all, is that regardless of your ethnicity, year or grades the Cal experience affects iliiiiTim everyone just the same - dramatically. So as the years pass and you reminisce of the years you spen t at Cal, remember to think of the great as well as the bad. It is the bad that make the good seem great .

Herff Jones was our publishing company, represented by Jane Roehrig. The book was printed in the Herff Jones plant located in Logan, Utah. The cover is black mat with black ink, with a black and white tip- on photo custom embossed. The thirteen hundred copies were printed on 100 pound bourdeux paper. This 304 page book in- cludes 48 pages of full color. Three type faces were chosen for the book: Garamond Narrow, Helvetica and Onyx. All type is a varia- tion of these three fonts. Six Macintosh computers were used to produce the layouts on Aldus PageMaker 5.0, using a templete called " PageMaster " provided by Herff Jones.

Univeristv of California, Berkelev, CA9-i " ' 20, facility was established, all the elements began coming together. The book began taking shape. Tough decisions had to be made about the look of the book and keeping it consistent throughout each section. It seemed like all of the deadlines were on top of one another, and the day the book would finally be finished would never arrive. • Fortunately, the new and faster computers made the production of the book go much more smoothly and effectively. Luckily the staff was dedicated as deadlines backed up into finals and they took their studying time to finish the book. Fonunately, the spring semseter was a bit calmer! We learned from our unavoidable mistakes this year and are pretty proud of the results. • Copy by David Gnibstick 296 1 dosing 1994 Blue Gold Yearbook Staff :ditors-in-Chief Associate Editor section Editors Lucy Tarin Shih Chang David Grubstick Traci Brown (Sports) Elizabeth D ' Oliveira (Issues People) Catherine Leung (Life) ayout Designers Debbie Cheng Ronnie Cheung Hope Meng Ryan Lovett Heather Bradley Stephanie Doniger Anna Fenner David Kang Theresa Rojas ;taff Writers Photography Editor Jason Chan Photography Staff Rachel Cho Jeffer ' Gou Lola Hermosillo Hope Meng Robert Shaw Kim Steinbacher John Valencia Gwen Yu Business Manager Helen Lok Business Staff Shirley Cheng Sheron Li Angeli Santos Gwen Yu Advisor Jonathan Brennan Herff Jones Representative Jane Roehrig slaff Mm Uavid Grubsiic k Associate Editor This has been quite a year. 1 thinl that we all deserve a pat on the back for pulling off producing a Spring Deliver} ' book! A special thanks to the section editors, Elizabeth, Catherine and Traci. You guys stepped in, took a lot of the " grunt " work, and even put up with me and my demands. You guys deserve a raise! And thanks to Lucy, Jason, Shih and Helen who did a great job organizing the staffs. I really enjoyed working with you guys, even if it didn ' t look like it. Jonathan and Jane -- what can I say? You both gave me the confidence I needed most. And thanks to the general staff, this wouldn ' t have been possible without you guys. Jason Chan Photography Editor where to begin? Ah. . .let ' s see. Take three cups of headaches mix in a couple pounds of elbow grease and of course a dedicated staff and what do you get? 1 never thought we ' d actually get this sucker off the ground, but great things happen when great minds come together, and work with a single goal in mind-to revitalize a campus tradition. Being on staff means much more than just snapping a few photos or jotting down a story or two; capturing different pieces of Cal has made are lives difficult, but definitely rewarding. Kudos to head honchos Shih, Lucy and Dave, Cathy, Traci, Liz, Jane and special thanks to aspiring photographers Susie, Kim, Hope, Gwen, Robert and Gita. Of course, where would we be without Jonathan? God bless. Helen Lok Business Manager Stress, Stress. ..and more stress! Besides head- aches from our classes, business staff members have to deal with pressures of setting up por- trait sitting sessions. For those who don ' t know, this job can really test your patience and san- ity. Fortunately, thanks to everyone ' s hard work, we have pulled it off. Sheron- thanks for doing those last minute ads for the Daily Cal. Shirley and Angeli- thanks a bunch for making posters, posting, and coming up with bright ideas. Couldn ' t have done it without all of you. Lucy, Shih, David, Jason, and other staff members- thanks for putting up with me. This yearbook business is still kind of new to me so thank ver ' much for being patient with me.

Somehow it didn ' t. Perhaps it was the fact that about 80% of the book was due before Christmas . To the average student that niav nut mean much, but to me and the rest of the staff it meant forgoing pre- cious study time during finals to slave away tr ' ing to piece this book together. With this in mind, all I can .say is that 1 am eternally grateful to the section editors, a couple being first years, who were willing suffer side by side with me. To Dave all I can say is that you are absolutely wonder- ful. I kno w at times actually making sure the book gets done could be mind racking. But believe Lury Tarin " ' " " What seemed like " Mission Impossible " in late August has certainly lived up to be- come the action-packed thriller that we had all expected this year ' s production to be. " We ' ve had more than our share of an.xicties as we saw our deadlines rapidly approach - one after the other, with no breathing room in between. Oursmall but talented staff of writers, photographers, designers, and businesswomen labored very hard, and I wish we can pay you all! My sincerest gratitude goes out to our incred- ible section editors: Cathy, Elizabeth, and Tracy. You ' ve all gone beyond the call of duty to put this book together, and your devotion to your work has earned my deep- est respect. I can ' t express how grateful I am, Ja.son, foryour late night excursions up Fraternity Lane to take group photos. I wish we can get you all the EOS and Nikon Editor " 7 " ! Shih Chang you 11 need!

David: You ' ve admirably taken the pro- duction staff under your wings, and with yourguidance they ' ve pieced together thi fantastic book. I wish we can all have your incredible work ethic. Lucy: You ' ve never made me feel like the novice that I am, and I thank you from bottom of my heart. Your generosity and your dedication will always be my inspiration. Jonathan and Jane; I depended on you both for advice and answers, and I sure needed a lot of them! Thanks for being there for me. I look forward to working with you all next year! times I ' d rather do that than some of the stuff I ' ve had to deal with. Jason, your work is spectacular as usual. Maybe one of these days you can actually teach me how to take photos with a real camera, as compared to my cheapie Kodak one. Shih, working together seems to have been a great merger. I hope that I have made your job as easy as you have made mine. To the rest of the staff, though it may be small, evcrvihing counts, includ- ing your help. I hope to see a lot of you back next year. Yes. I ' ll still be here. Isvje r it ' ll be easier. Finally to Jonathan and Jane who are there when we need them yet treat us as the adults that we are. To my friends, lapologizeforallthetimeslwasn ' taround. You know where I was. Doing this book. At least this way, you have to remember me. Ha! Finally, to my family for their continu- ous love.That ' s me and Dad in the picture. Staff H 299 Remember that first brown leaf you saw on the Faculty Glade, shivering in the late summer breeze? " Ah, fall is near, " you thought as you walked to your first class. In the months to follow, more leaves changed colors and began to fall, littering sidewalks and clogging gutters. In Sproul Plaza, those funky old trees gradually became na- ked, exposing those odd branched that seem to strangely remind you of knuckled fists... Before you know it, all the trees are lifeless, hibernating in the cold winter months. This reminded you that finals are just around the comer. The tress remaindormant into the Spring semester, until that one day when you walked back from your second set of mid- terms, and you spotted that first bud of a leaf sprouting on the tip of a nearby tree.

The trees then bursted with new growth, exploding out of their long sleep. Graduations start, and tee-shirts and shorts were once again the norm. Another year has passed, and though you might not have re- alized it, you have evolved during this year more than you realize. You might compare yourself to the tree: full of life when you first arrived in August, worn down in the winter months by endless classes until it seemed like you would never live, and then back to life again near the completion of the year. You have grown during this time, not only physically but mentally.
