" Berkeley has eagerly taken up this mantle, expanding efforts to fulfill the planners ' vision beyond the classroom. One aspect has been student activism, a keystone of the Berkeley experience. Early causes included the Free Speech Movement and demonstrations against the war in Vietnam, and the tradition continues into the twenty-first century ' with affirmative action and ethnic studies demonstrations, proving that education at UC Berkeley is more than lectures, problem sets, and papers.

It is 5:30 Tiiursday night and Sue Li-Jue ' s last class of the day. As the niusif stops and hv tiancors break their finishing poses, it sparks a icsi ' niblam c lo actors stepping off a stage. Sue is one if the last to leave the studio, gathering Hlm rmisic and saying good- )ye to her students. There is a grace and fluidity to Sue ' s gestures hat reveal her profession. For the past thirteen years, Sue has taught dance at UC Berkeley ind worked as a professional dancer on the side. Facing East Dance md Music, Sue ' s fledgling dance and production company, presented ts first show in November of 1999, the acclaimed " Rice Women. " I thia Houng: We ' ll start with the basics. How did you start dancing? Sue Li-luc: Like every little girl, nn mother put me in ballet class .vhen 1 was sL . I don ' t think she knew how it would blossom in idulthood, but just like every little girl, I took classes in a small dance itudio. I grew up in San Mateo, on the Peninsula, and I took tap and aallet from first grade all the way through high school. After that, I ivent to UCLA and majored in modern dance. After UCLA, I came back to northern California and went to Mills College (a private women ' s college) and got my master of fine arts, also in modern dance, with an emphasis on choreography and pedagogy (teaching). So, at that point, I prett ' much realized that I wanted to spend most of my life in dance. 1 invested all of this time and money. 1 got two degrees in dance, so I thought, " I ' ve got to make it somehow worth it. " (Laughter) I ended up finding a job in dance, I was fortunate enough to teach here, and I ' ve been here for 13 years teaching modem and jazz and ballet and stretching and tap and choreography, pretty much ever thing in Western dance, or as much as I can handle. I have a family, I have a husband and two children. I ' m trying to work for balance in my life, and I know all too well that dance and a life in the arts, they ' re a hard life. It ' s hard, next to impossible, to have a relationship, let alone children you have to take care of, when you ' re out touring around and being part of a large company. 1 realized that that particular lifestyle was not really what I wanted to do. I got married pretty early, I got married right out of graduate school. Being able to have a family right away and being able to find this job at UC Berkeley gave me a sense of stability. CH: Did you tour with companies, work as a professional dancer? SL: I did small things. I have to say I never explored a true professional dancer ' s lifestyle. I never made the trip to New York, the Mecca of dance, and tried to seek my fortune in dance, tried to get into a big company. I ' ve always been a little bit too practical for my own good, in a way. It ' s working out great now, but at the time, I was wondering if this was the right choice, really, because in the prime of my dancing career, I decided to settle down. I ' ve been teaching, getting a family, getting what I thought was my career in order. Simultaneously, through all these years in graduate school and through the last ten years, I ' ve been what ' s called a " pick-up dancer, " which involves dancing in independent projects with local Features choreographers and local small modern dance companies. I danced with June Watanabe ' s dance company. That was one of my first experiences with a truly Asian American dance company. After that, I danced with a company called " Dance Brigade, " which was a very left wing, feminist, politically based dance group based in Oakland. Then, I worked with various choreographers, picking up on projects, because that ' s what my time allowed. If I teach here all day, and I have children at night, I only have time for one project at a time, because I can ' t go anywhere. So that ' s the way it ' s been for the last ten years. CH: Has it been a tough balancing act? SL: It is a tough balancing act. It ' s expensive to live here and once you dig that hole — once you buy a house, buy a car you have to keep up those payments, so this job has really been wonderful in the sense that it ' s kept me in dance. 1 felt like I was financially more free to dance for free or for very little money. It was just a different route. CH: How did you end up choosing dance as your medium? SL: You know, it ' s very interesting. I think that when I first started taking dance classes, my mother and my teachers seemed to think I had some tendency towards being good at this thing. Like most youths who are in the process of growing up, in my junior high and high school rebellious years, I really wanted to stop dancing, because developing my social life was more important to me. My mother kept me in class because she felt it was important. I had devoted a certain amount of time to it, and she insisted that I continue. I worked through that process and during the middle and end of high school, I started to truly love dance for myself. Up to the middle of high school, it was something that I was used to doing because my mother took me. She drove me and made sure I never skipped class, but it wasn ' t until I matured that I realized that this was a very special thing. As you know, as a college student you start looking for that special thing that ' s going to be your path. In college, I had very little guidance, all that I really knew was that I wanted to get my multiple degrees. That good Chinese upbringing that I had emphasized education ' s importance. At the same time, what I felt like I was good at was all of the " softer subjects, " it was art and dance and writing and French and psychology and sociology and all the non " hard sciences " that could actually get you a good paying job. (Laughter.) Among all the things that I could choose from that I liked, 1 was probably best at dance, and if I wasn ' t going to make any money, at least 1 was going to be good at and enjoy what I was going to do. I ended up in dance in a sort of very backwards, illogical way. CH: Many Asian parents tend to look upon a career in the arts with some disapproval. Did you meet some of these difficulties when you chose to pursue a career in dance? SL: Things worked out personally tor nie really well, though its true that a career in the arts is not exactly what Asian parents hope their children fall into. They want that security. My parents, luckily, were always purveyors of the arts. They still, even now, go to the Cantonese opera, and they ' re my best fans. They come see ever thing that I do. So I got lucky in that respect, and 1 think the reason that they and 1 hope I ' m not putting words into their mouth — I think that the reason why they ' re more accepting of what I do is because I work at UC Berkeley also. (Laughs.) I make a good living. A teaching salary is not big, it ' s really not a doctor ' s or lawyer ' s salary. However, the clout of being able to say that I teach at UC Berkeley carries weight, so I think with those two things, they ' re pretty happy with my decision. I ' m fortunate that way. My students who have pressure at home often ask, " How did you do that? What We talked about my inspirations for a project that dealt with Asian American issues with a woman-based focus. She was interested, so we made a duet, anil iIkmi we brought in Hileeii Kim. who is the aciniinisirative assistant for Chancellor Mitchell. That ' s her day job, hernot-so-secret life. (Laughs.) fhis is her secret life, dancing with me. Eileen is actually a couple years older than I am. We brought in others, and now we have a nucleus group of seven, as well as two musicians that compose all of our music. " Rice Women " was our first project under |the name] " Facing East Dance and Music. " Before that, it was just Sue Li-Iue showing some work. As we went out more and I started to develop more pieces, people started to ask, " What shall we call you? What shall we print in the program? " 1 realized that I had to have something to call the group. ' We are funded primarily by passionl ' do 1 say to my parents when 1 say 1 want a life in the arts? " It ' s not necessarily dance, you know, it ' s graphic design, or painting, or music. It ' s very difficult, because it ' s so individual. You have to work that out yourself. It ' s something that I think as a young adult you need to ask is " Do I really want this path, or am I doing this to follow what my parents believe my path should be? " Sometimes it works out. and sometimes it doesn ' t, and that ' s the individual part, and that ' s the soul-searching part. CI I: Let ' s talk about your group, Facing Hast. SL: In Facing East, my current group, we always say on our programs that we are funded primarily by passion, and that is very true. It ' s not a lot of money. It ' s a lot of time, a lot of effort and worrying, but it ' s always really worth it because the passion is there. My group is a group of women that have taken the same path that I ' ve taken. In other words, we ' ve all gone to dance school, taken lots of classes, trained extensively, toured or danced for companies and we know what it ' s like to be bound to a very tight schedule where they basically own you. We ' re over that " hump. " Now we work a regular " real " job — I probably shouldn ' t say real job. (Laughs.) We ' re working in traditional jobs, making our day jobs, and our spare time we devote to our projects. CM: How did you begin your company. Facing East! SL: I started one dancer at a time. I met Vivian Dai, who was a former UC student, one of my students, and we re-met in a dance class. We were taking the same dance class, and we started talking. She had matured — I ' m at least ten years her senior — and we realized we had a lot of thesame vision. She was tired of trying to " make it " in dance, yet she really wanted to work on projects that were iniiresiing to her. CH: How did you come up with the name Facing Easfi SL: " Facing East " was the original name of the first duet that Vivian and I did. It ' s a name that has multiple layers of meaning. For me, it means a time in my life where I respected, maybe for the first time, my Chinese heritage. Of course, I ' ve always been Chinese, but I ' ve also always been American. I was born and raised here. My parents are from China, so 1 literally am first generation, and I became extremely Americanized. 1 speak broken Chinese — 1 understand quite a bit, actually, of Cantonese and Mandarin — but I don ' t speak fluently at all. So, for me, " Facing East " means looking at my past, looking at China, the roots, and being able to bridge that here, so that geography does not become a barrier between being Chinese and not being Chinese. 1 don ' t feel like 1 have to be in China to feel like I ' m Chinese. There ' s a balance to be had as an Asian and as an American. I know the term " Asian-American " is thrown out a lot. 1 actually feel like I ' m Asian and American, or Chinese and American, instead of the hyphenated term because 1 feel like I can be both, and that ' s what " Rice Women " is about. " Rice Women " deals with more than just Asian American issues, it is accessible because it also deals with mother-daughter issues. Asian Americans read ;c Joy I tick Cliih and said, " Yes! Yes! Yes! " because it spoke to them on a certain c v . but the book is so popular because it ' s also about mother-tlaughter issues that allowed others to read il and also experience the same recognition. 1 w anted " Rice Women " to have the same kind of impact. CH: What are some of the pros and consof teaching at Berkeley? What do you hope your students take away from your classes? SL: The pros would be being able to refine my teaching skills, my interi)ersonal ii ' lalion skills, and ni inovcnient ()c ' al)ulai . It ncludes being able to be in a studio with intelligent young bodies ind minds who are willing to experiment with me. My students iren ' t aware that I ' m experimenting, but I try many different approaches to teaching movement, and to getting into whatever a itudent needs to be able to understand liow to perform a particular |:ask. 1 often use IteachingI as an experiment ground. It ' s where I ' ll Tiake a phrase, see if I can turn that into a step. I also like keeping a lulse on what college students are thinking — ' m not that old, but I am quite a bit older than everybody that ' s here — Afhat the mentality is, Afhat do people want iiese days with iiemselves. The more I nteract with students, the nore I realize how mportant dance is to iheir education while Jiey ' re here. Being able to express themselves, to be ahysical. to move to nusic, to train musculariy heir bodies, to take dance seriously as an art form ind as a form of :ommunication, not just a Dastime, is all an mportant part of their education. I like being ible to cultivate what will je tomorrow ' s audience md tomorrow ' s arts matrons. If you ' ve done something, you can jppreciate all the difficulties and intricacies. i you ' ve taken a dance :lass and you know how lard it is to balance on jne leg, when you see somebody balance on poinie and iiold it for 10 seconds without mo ' ing, you think " Wow, that ' s amazing. " The jiitrained eye would not necessarily see that. The untrained eye ees the high leaps and many, many turns as impressive. The :rained eye sees the in-between steps and understands what that ' s ill about. It looks for a message and something to touch them Features within the dance. If I can impart that idea to just one person out of a class of forty, and they go out into the world and make all their money and become an arts patron, then they will be able to give back in some way. [Teaching is] a physically hard job. When I first started teaching here, I had ten two-hour dance classes a week. Right now I have thiriccn iwo-hour dance classes a week. There ' s a different kind of preparation and a different kind of energy than a lecture class. CH: Do you feel that Berkeley gives adequate support to the arts? SL: I don ' t think that UC Berkeley necessarily, in the eye of the public or the eye of the media, values the arts. 1 think that you and I both know that UC Berkeley is famous for its science, its research, its math, its law, its architecture, and it should be. But, there is another side to Berkeley, and it seems to be downplayed to a certain degree. Nevertheless, the arts are not dead. I think that ' s the important thing, that is to remember that we ' re still here, all these classes are still here, so there is some kind of support. It allows people to be an art major, a dramatic art major, a music major. I wish it were more balanced. The faculty here does a lot of creative activities. A lot of research is creative. Really good research is beyond the box, it ' s thinking outside of the box. In the arts, we think outside of the box every day and all the time. The problem is, it doesn ' t bring in the money, and the money is, in a sense, the bottom line. 1 realize now that in the arts you have to fight and struggle a bit more, because our voice is quiet. ■ Interview conducted by Cynthia Houng I 1 The Beauty ot the Organic T vo paintings hang side by side in Katherine Sherwood ' s office in Kroeber Hall. One painting is representative of Sherwood ' s earlier style, and the other has a more recent genesis. The newer painting has an organic quality, a quality of roughness about its texture and brushwork, whose antecedent can be glimpsed in Sherwood ' s earlier work. This painting is spare and flowing, acrylic paints layered over photolithograhs of Sherwood ' s own cerebral angiograms (x-rays of blood vessels within the brain). These recent paintings, flowing with organic curves and textures, sit at the crux of art and science. Sherwood has taken images that were traditionally considered to be outside the realm of art and appropriated them in her work. Now, magnified a thousandfold, these images dare the viewer to regard them as anything but art. When asked how she decided to incorporate these cerebral angiograms into her art, Sherwood said, " I first started using these [angiograms] after my 3 " Knock Your Block Off (1998), mixed media on canvas, 96 x 72 inches The curvacious forms trapped in blocks at the lower right hand corner are King Solomon ' s Seals. stroke, which was in May of 1997. 1 had a cerebral hemorrhage, and they performed this procedure (on me]. When the procedure was over, I sat up and saw this beautiful image of the inside of my head, and I was moved to say, ' I have to gel those. I want those. ' " She adds, with a laugh, " All the doctors and nurses looked at me like I was crazy, and I said, ' But I ' m an artist, I have to get these! ' " The spirit that moves Sherwood to create is difficult to describe. " It comes from a place that ' s very hard to put into words, " she says, pointing to intuition rather than a set " process. " " From art history, 1 draw a lot of inspiration, especially all the work that was done around the first millenium, " says Sherwood. " The cerebral angiograms are another major source of inspiration. " Sherwood points to the moment when she first saw her cerebral angiograms as the catalytic event that propelled her back into the studio. " That was the first time 1 had even allowed myself to think as an artist, because before I was just so taken with the fact that 1 had to get well. " Sherwood ' s stroke changed more than her focus and subject matter; it also transformed her entire painting process. Prior to her stroke, Sherwood was right-handed. After the stroke, Sherwood taught herself to paint with her left hand. Her left hand, says Sherwood, is more " free " than her right hand. " My recent work also tends to be on a larger scale, " she comments. Although Sherwood has used brain imagery in the past, her recent work carries a much more personal meaning, where the cerebral angiograms come to symbolize the concept of " art making |as| a life-saving device. " , Sherwood ' s painting process begins by laying lu-r canvas on a horizontal surface in her home studio. " There is a bed in my house that is too high for me now. 1 converti ' il llial from my bed to my siutlio table. I lay the canvas on the bed and work on it while I sii in a chair with wheels. 1 just circle around [the bed] in my chair " After the stroke, Sherwood wanted to " detoxify the process, " so she switched from oil paints to acrylics, and she finishes the paintings with oils. On these canvases, Sherwood juxtaposes photolithographs of her cerebral angiograms with thick, iw ' islin lines of paint and the occasional Kinj; Solomon ' s Seal. The seals are images culleii horn a ini ' dicval in.uHis( ripl cnlillcd ' Ihc I.emegetan. " They have the " abiliu I ' : ' 1 ire illness and disease — [help] with the acquisition of wealth — nd give] sophistication and worldly wisdom. " These arterial anderings, these glimpses into the rivers and canals that feed a ind, seem vaguely voyeuristic and yet undeniably universal. i came to art relatively late; I was about twenty-four or twenty- e when I began, " Sherwood says, commenting that her periences are encouraging towards young aspiring artists who ay not have very much formal training. As an undergraduate, aerwood majored in art histon, ' . Her background, she feels, has ade her more of an " artist teacher, " leaving its imprint upon her aching methods. Sherwood has been an associate professor in the t Practice Department at UC Berkeley for over a decade, teaching 1 levels of classes, from " The Language of Painting, " an troductory course, to graduate level curricula. Her enthusiasm for aching shines through In her interactions writh students, where le often takes a very personal, one-on-one approach to istruction. Passing through Kroeber ' s studios on a lazy afternoon, ne can observe Sherwood in earnest discussion, helping her udents develop their technique as well as discover their unique ;nses of aesthetics. ' The most enjoyable aspect |of teaching at Berkeley], " she luses, " is my interaction with the students. It ' s what keeps me here nd what I truly love. One of the classes that I teach, called " The Features Language of Painting, " pretty much draws students from every single part of the university. There are always five or six art majors, but 1 love teaching non-artists about art and introducing them to art. 1 think teaching is so important because I ' m giving the students knowledge with which to be art lovers and art majors, equally. 1 always joke that I ' m training stockbrokers to enjoy art. " In 1999, the San Francisco Art Institute awarded Sherwood the prestigious Adaline Kent Award for her most recent work. The award is given yearly to a " talented, promising, and deserving California artist. " The 1999 Adaline Kent Award Committee wrote of her work, " In viewing Sherwood ' s paintings, visual traces of the epiphany of human imagination are revealed. " The award included a solo exhibition, held at the San Francisco Institute of Art from June 3 through July 3, 1999. On the strengths of this exliibit, Sherwood was chosen to participate in the Whitney Museum ' s Biennial Exhibition in January of 2000, a prestigious exhibit held in New York City that has helped propel several artists ' careers, though for a mature, established artist like Sherwood, inclusion in the Whitney Biennial may simply be considered as an affirmation of her asion as an artist. ■ Cynthia Hoiing " Can Make A Woman " (1999), mixed media on canvas, 108 x 84 inches Kathehne Sherwood at work John ' s Island, South Carolina, 1995 ;inSJ. Lewis Watts has taught photography at Berkeley since 1 978, although his association with Berkeley dates much further, to his undergraduate years. Watts received both his B.A. (in political science) and his M.A. (in photography and design) from UC Berkeley. I lis photographic interests have led him to photograph the lives of African Americans in the Oakland area, and led him to the heart of the Deep South, capturing those moments of elegance that too often slip by unobserved. In his introduction to the catalog for Watts ' latest exhibition, Jeffrey Hoone writes, " There are many journeys in Leuis Watts ' photographs and if we pay close attention it seems that each image can inove us through a continuous cycle of inemory, ritual, and renewal. " Cynthia Houng: Beginning with the very basics, how did you first become interested in photography? Why choose the camera over any other medium? Lewis Watts: I became interested in photography when I was a graduate student in Architecture and 1 simultaneously took a photo class and had a work study job in the photo lab of the University Art Museum. I was drawn to photography because it included elements of film and painting which i had had some interest in eadier in my life. CH: Do you consider your photography to contain more of an artistic aspect or a documentary aspect? LW: I would say that my work has a combination of fine arts (]ualities in a documentary form. i ' Al: Do you prefer to work with a certain type c f subject matter? What have been some major themes of your work? LW: I am interested in " cultural landscape " which explores issues of history, culture, and contemporary life as louiul in liic cm iionincius ol ilic piiiccs I ,)hotograph. I also photograph ilic pcdplc wiio inluihit Capturing the neighborhoods and rural areas that 1 have been working in. CH:You pursued a B.A. in political science before committing yourself to photography. Do you feel that your background in political science changes the way you approach your subject matter? LW: 1 am sure that my backgroiuid and interest in political science and history has informed much of my photographic work. I have used visual means to explore and express places, people and experience that 1 was interested in for a much longer period than I have been a photographer. CH: How do you go about choosing and setting up a shot? What kind of equipment do you use? LW: 1 usually react to situations, rather then working in a totally calculating way. 1 don ' t work randomly as I have worked over extended periods of time in West Oakland, other urban areas, and in the rural south, and 1 am tuned into certain kinds of visual and cultural clues. 1 do try to stay open to many unexpected situations and 1 try to frame my images in ways that incluilc aiui exclude the Richmond, California, 1996 m ippropriate elements in tlu ' composition ami lontenl of the iubjects. I use 35mm and nu-dium format cameras and film, and ' ve been using digital imaging and hardware recently as a way of Droadening my options to produce and show my work. H: Some find it surprising that your photography classes are affiliated with the Architecture Department rather than the Practice of Art Department. Can you explain why Berkeley ' s visual studies department is grouped with the architecture department? How does photography help develop an architect ' s vision? LW: Photography classes are affiliated with the Architecture Department because many years ago the Practice of Art Department decided that they didn ' t want to offer photography because it wasn ' t, at that time and in the minds of the faculty [who made the decisions] , considered an " art " form. This was just prior to the photo boom in fine arts and it was decided that photography would be offered as part of the Design Program that was in the College of Environmental Design. When the Design program was fazed out in the 70 ' s, photography continued under the auspices of the Architecture Department where it has continued ever since. The majorit) ' of the students in the photo classes are from the College of Environmental Design and they find the class valuable as a creative experience that challenges their visual problem solving skills as well as gives them a tool to use both professionally and artistically. There are a good number of former students who are working as photographers and in related professions which is amazing, considering that there are only limited class offerings and no undergraduate major at this time. CH: Do you feel that UC Berkeley is a supportive environment for the arts and that the arts community (if there is one) is lively and ' promotes creativity? If not, do you find the Bay Area to be a I supportive environment for the arts and for artists? LW: The answer to that question is both yes and no. There has been a history of hostility to the arts in some segments of the university administration. There were plans to faze out Art Practice, Dance, and Photography. Due to student and community pressures, those efforts have been thwarted, at least temporarily. There are many I students at Berkeley from a wide variety of disciplines who are very interested in the arts and in participating in creative activities. The ASUC art studio has many well attended classes and my Visual Studies classes always have a large number of students attempting to enroll. The sold-out programs in dance, music, and drama on campus show the strong interest and support in the campus commimity and the very strong Bay Area arts community is a resource that feeds as well as benefits from the participation of the Berkeley community. ■ Interview conducted by Cynthia Houng Features Joe, Garvey Park.

West Oakland, 1993 Features A Lite of Words: An Interview with Joan Gatten, founder of th Rhyme Reason poetry series. Cynthia Houng: How did the idea for the Rhyme and Reason series lof poetry readings come about? Who participates in Rhyme and Reason ' s readings? Do you run the series by yourself, or have you slowly accumulated a group of helpers? Joan Gatten: First I ' d like to explain that Rhyme Reason is an open mike forum that promotes the public presentation of poetry, storytelling, scholarship, and music. The group is comprised of Bay Area poets, performers, and lovers of the spoken word. All volunteer their services to the group. The goal of R R is to enhance the quality of community life. Rhyme Reason takes place at the UC Berkeley Art Museum, which has generously donated the use of their Conference Room, a campus-to-community outreach project. We meet on 2nd and 4th Sundays, 2:00- 5:00pm, at 2621 Durant. For each event, we have two featured readers, a man and woman, and 3-5 minutes for each open mike performer. As a UC Library staff member, I had learned of the Art Museum ' s search for a community project. At the time I was a regular performer at Louis Cuneo ' s Touch of a Poet series which met at a Rockridge coffee house. But I had envisioned a setting for reciting poetry free from the loudness of the espresso machine, and closer to the Berkeley campus community. So I took the opportunity to introduce the Touch of the Poet group to the Art Museum. " The Touch " met happily at the Museum for two years until its founder announced his retirement from the open mike series, in order to concentrate on his owm poetry and to promote open mike poetry festivals. A group of us rallied to reorganize, creating Rhyme Reason, currently in our second year. The Steering Committee consists of poets long active in " The Touch " and the Bay Area poetry communities: Mark States (UCB Alumni; BA, Ethnic Studies, 1984), is our congenial Master of Ceremonies. Mark creates a warm, humorous. Joan Gatten takes the mike. supportive and respectful tone to the readings, as he introduces the featured poets and as many as 15 poets on the open mike. He is also active in scheduling our programs and networking. Randy Fingland, also of Book People, is doorkeeper and in charge of set-up. He also handles publicity, scheduling, and networking. He is co-coordinator of the annual Berkeley Poetry Festival. John Rowe, President of The Bay Area Poets Coalition, provides assistance of all trades.

CH: Do you feel that the Rhyme and Reason series has brought together a community of poets and poetry lovers? jG: Rhyme Reason has grown as a community, developing its own special character. The group has a broad involvement of volunteers, democratic decision making, and has expanded to include scholars and experimental modes. The ambiance of the art museum setting contributes beautifully to the spirit of the group. We are highly respectful of poets and other performers, and are open and welcoming to all who attend. Participating poets all contribute to a sense of community and to an experience which inspires each other in their creativity. Rhyme Reason has increased community and University awareness and participation in the series, by expanding publicity on campus, and by increasing the involvement of UC staff and student poets as featured readers.

Rhyme Reason has actively promoted a philosophy of community diversity and collaboration: " Rhyme Reason " explains it well. Not rhyme or reason, but boih. fhe East Bay poetry community and the academic community have more contact with each other and have an increased opportunity to learn from each other, due to the open mike forum that embraces broadly diverse groups- students and nonstudents. from youth to elders, all races and ethnic groups, various mixed media, poets, musicians and scholars. Women feel especially welcome due to the atmosphere of freedom of speech vdth respect, and appreciation of differences. The group actively encourages people with disabilities to participate. There are many visitors from abroad, who find Rhyme Reason due to their location at the Art Museum. M styles and schools of writing are encouraged, and people rise to the occasion with a high level of quality- they give their best! CH: How and when did you first become interested in poetry and poetry readings? What is it about poetry that draws you to it? What inspires you to write and create? ]G: 1 have always loved trying to find just the right words to fit important moments, and never found it easy to put other people ' s words in my mouth. When I was about ten, my grandparents gave me a beautifully bound little anthology of poetry just like theirs. It was like a magic book to me. In school 1 had one wonderful teacher who loved to read very funny and thoughtful poetry to us. He got us to write poems, and he liked what I wrote. When I came to San Francisco as a college student, I majored in psychology, but arrived just at the time the anthology, " The New American Poetry, 1945- 60 " was published, and North Beach was alive with artists, writers, musicians and other creative characters. I married into the international community of poets that flourished at that time. In my mind I can still hear each of the poets ' voices, speaking their poems and casually talking about life and creativity. It was a few years later, after being divorced, that my own poetry showed up. I began catching certain thoughts on paper, words I had waited all my life to articulate, such as: Everybody needs to be spontaneous... simultaneously, or: What is the relationship between language and mathematics???. ...Every word counts!

Sixty-three percent of California voters supported Proposition 22, the so-called Knight hiiiiaii e. whicii outlaws same-sex marriages within the state of California. Sixiy-four percent of voters supported Proposition 21. changing the jincnile justice system virtually overnight. Proponents of the Knight Initiative stressed the simplicity of Proposition 22, saying that it was nothing but " fourteen little words. " 1 he full text runs, " Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California. " Supporters iniioc uoiisly asserted that Proposition 22 would not infringe upon civil rights for gays and lesbians, that it was not discriminator), or hateful, but was designed to protect the sanctity of marriage.

Proposition 21 is just the latest in a series of anti-crime initiatives, ostensibly to reduce :rime, but indirectly targeting minorities and other underrepresented groups. In retrospect, both propositions were destined to pass in California ' s current reactionary atmosphere. Times are good, the economy is up, unemployment is down, and voters are conservative, riding on a wave of surging property values and stock Dptions. Perhaps the most telling symbols of tlie times were tiie inescapable " Yes on 22 " signs that sprouted on green Silicon Valley lawns or the fact that Orange County v ' oters gave a resounding yes to both 21 and 22. Berkeley students joined legions of other students across the state, protesting both measures until the day of the primaries. Student groups held regular demonstrations on Sproul Plaza, and even succeeded in shutting down a Chevron gas station on Telegraph Avenue protesting the corporation ' s support of Proposition 21. Residents and students alike slogged through heavy rains to polling stations. Voter registration rates prior to the primaries were also high; the ASUC ' s voter registration efforts yielded an estimated 4,300 new voters. Both Propositions 21 and 22 were defeated in Alameda County (54.1 % voted against Proposition 22 and 55.2 % voted against Proposition 21 ), though by the barest of margins. The day after the primaries, aftershocks rippled through the community, as groups organi .eil anti-Proposition 22 marches and rallies n Berkeley and San Francisco. Speakers during Queer Awareness Week spoke out against Proposition 22, drawing parall els between the state ' s ban on gay marriage with earlier referendums that banned interracial marriage in order to " preserve the integrity of the white race. " On March H. the da ' alter the primaries, a group calleil the C aiiloniia ( Coalition Against the Criminal System set off fire alarms in several buildings across the Berkeley campus, protesting the passages of Propositions 2 1 and 22. .A total ol tuel e fire alarms were pulled in ten different Iniikliiigs, among them buildings with hea y traflic including Barrows. Dwinelle. lAans. and Wheeler halls. While some students were annoyed at the disruption, others s nipathi eii with the group ' s positiiin hut felt that Students gather m front of Sproul Hall during a demonstration. their actions had iriarginal effects. As Xav Serrato said in an interview with the Dnily Califoniiaii. " I don ' t particularly think it ' s appropriate, but I agree with the frustration of the people who diii it. " However, other students felt that the group ' s actions retlected public outrage. John Patel told the Daily Califoniiaii that he believed the group ' s actions " [displayed] how angry people are about the results, [such as] the growing prison system and homophobia in society, " while Alistair Ono felt that such tactics were " a more effective way to get people ' s attention than the e eryday protests on the steps of Sproul Hall. " In an election ' ear as disappointing as this, one might be tempted to ask, " Why vote at all? " The Associated Press reported that only 65% of eligible voters actually voted on March 7, a number that comes to a staggering 14 million unheard voices. Moving away from the stock response that one vote et|u.ils one opinion, moie than anything, each vote cast is an act of hope. ■ Cyiiiliia lloung Buildings such as the Campanile and Doe Library, both designed by John Galen Howard, were constructed under the Hearst Plan. The Hearst Plan was the first master plan implemented to expand the UC Berkeley campus. The New I ' Century Plan hopes to do ■ ■ the same. r acing the New Century i Features 3 7 As the university enters the 21st century, it faces an increase in enrollment and a need to update its infrastructure. University officials recognize that Bericeley ' s campus is far too small to accommodate its burgeoning student population. Even wnthout " Tidal Wave II. " the influx of new students expected in the next decade, Berkeley students are already strapped for housing. In response to these demands, the university has introduced the Southside Plan and the New Century Plan. The Southside Plan is a collaborative effort between the city of Berkeley and UC Berkeley to address issues of land use. housing, community character, economic development, and public safety. At the unveiling of the Southside Plan in lanuary 2000, David Duncan, principal planner for UC Berkeley, said. " The main goals of this plan are to iniproxe and enhance the Southside ' s unique architectiual and social character, meet the areas housing needs, create a safe area for residents and shoppers, and promote a strong physical connection between the university and the neighborhood. " The Southside area is comprised of 28 blocks, containing somewhere between 9,000 and 1 1,000 residents. The boundaries of The University is collaborating with the City of Berkeley to improve the housing situation, community character, economic development, and public safelty of the south side of campus. This area encompasses 28 blocks between Bancroft Avenue, Dw ight Way, Prospect Avenue, and Fulton Street. They have deemed this project the Southside Plan. this area are Bancroft Way, Prospect Avenue, Fulton Street, and Dwight Way. Students have traditionally favored the Southside area for its comparatively cheap rent and proximity to the Telegraph area. However, the Southside is plagued by crime, rising rents, and lack of parking. Planners call for better street lighting, placing emergency telephones — which are currently only available on campus — on public streets, increased police presence, and better street signs. To reduce traffic congestion, planners recommended increasing public transportation options, converting certain one- way streets into two-way streets, and adding bus lanes to heavily traveled roads. Merchants on Telegraph Avenue say that increasing Southside safety would aid businesses and increase commerce in the Southside. The Southside Plan, like so many other policies that address a multiplicity of interests, has been the subject of heated debates and struggles for power in both the Berkeley community at large and the university community. Kelley Kahn. a project manager of the Southside Plan, admits that " keeping [student] participation constant is difficult because students arc transilorv. Sometimes the residents have more regular participation, so the clKillrn i ' is balancing all the different interest groups ' Both the city and the university agree that the Southside has been mostly " built out. " University officials have not ruled out the possibility nl UNiiit; the space occupied by People ' s Park for other purposes. Berkeley residents have been notoriously touchy o er the issue of People ' s Park, which has become, in many ways, a iiihural sxmhni thai strikes an emotional chord. In .in iiiter lew with the Daily Californinn. Berkeley mayor Shirley Dean said, " No way are we going to destroy this city....

Not all Berkeley residents, however, are pleased with the idea of additional high-density student housing structures. Mayor Dean questioned the iabilit ' of the Underhill project at a summit lueeting of the city, uni ersity. and student body. I )ean reiuarked that ackling more student housing in the SoiUhside area is " a mattiT ol increasing clensitN in an alie.icK ilense area. " The university hasn ' t e en come close to meeting the reL|uiirments set out In ]C. Regents in the 199()-2()(). ' ) long Range l)e elopnieni I ' lot UC Berkeley. Hie Plan calls for the Berkeley campus to provide 9,361 to 10,421 university operated beds and H.OlO parking spaces. , t this point, the Bcrkele ' campus has 6,955 beds and 7,386 parking spaces, many of the beds created by squeezing space out of the dorms, converting doubles into triples, and triples into t|uatls. Seismic retrofitting of the units has consumed nuich of the university ' s time and funding, hampering its progress towards the stated goals of the Long Range f)evelopment Plan. I he Regents cite compelling reasons for One option for expanding the campus includes building into the Berkeley Hills. Other options are in Richmond, Albany. and downtown Oakland. i 1 3 9 increasing affordable student housing: students uho reside near the campus are better able to utilize campus resources, affordable housing will attract and retain minority and lower- income students, and affordable housing is an important component of pro iding affordable higher education. Although the Underbill Parking Lot is located within the Southside area, the planning process lies entirely in the hands of the university, making it a part of the university ' s own " New Century Plan. " Tom Rollins, director of physical and environmental planning for UC Berkeley, describes the New Century Plan as " a strategic master facilities plan. " The plan is meant to address issues such as seismic retrohtting for quake- damaged buildings and renovating antiquated structures. Plans to renovate Lower Sproul Plaza are among the ma ny campus revitalization [jlans that are on the table. Rollins stresses that the NewCentur ' Plan does more than just address problems regarding the infrastructure of the university, it also addresses " the quality of campus life, how to create a setting that truly fosters the creation and dissemination of knowledge. ' Projects such as the revitalization of Lower Sproul Plaza are meant to render the campus more attractive to students, by creating a space that ' s tailored to the needs of the student community. Many buildings on campus built during the rapid expansion in the 1950s and 60s. such as Evans and those surrounding Lower Sproul Plaza, are in need of seismic reinforcement. At the time, these buildings were quickly constructed without concern to design, inorder to fulfill the need for more space on campus. Some feel that buildings such as these are generic and create an unfriendly environment. Planners have held workshops and meetings with students, in an effort to determine what students truly want out of Lower Sproul Plaza. Lower Sproul Plaza is currently nothing more than an expanse of concrete surrounded by tall buildings. Heather Hood, an associate planner with UC Berkeley ' s Physical and Environmental Planning division, told the Berkelycui that " the area does not reflect the world-class ranking the campus enjoys. " Like many campus buildings, those bordering Lower Sproul arc in need of seismic reinforcement and structural maintenance. Students have suggested that future plans for Lower Sproul Plaza include such diverse services as an art gallery, a wheelchair repair shop, computer labs, a child care center, and posts for Parking and Transportation, campus police, and housing services. Unfriendly spaces such as Lower Sproul Plaza were created dining the imiversity ' s rapid expansion in the 1950s and early 60s, a phenomenon retlccted in the architectinal styles of the buildings constructed dm ing this period. Evans 1 lall, a relic from that era, has been described by Chancellor Berdahl as " a monstrous architectural piece. " At the " Designing the Campus of Tomorrow " symposium, held at UC Berkeley on February 10, John Douglass of the Center for Studies in Higher F-ducation remarked that, " The rapid physical expansion of UC; and CSU, ohen on the cheap, and in an era of 4 Students use Underhill Parking Lot for events such as Calapalooza or for playing football just for fun with friends. sometimes brutal generic designs devoid ot any sense of region or place, has left a legacy that stands in sharp contrast to the core of the Berkeley campus. C!olleges and uni ersities are more than teaching factories, but are imporlant piililic spaces that in no small measure reflect the values of society. " The New Centiii Plan is an attempt to return to the planning ideals of the Hearst I ' lan. which, according to symposium co-organizer Steve Finacom, Was an effective blueprint for the creation of a physical campus to match and showcase the university ' s other aspirations. " Phoebe Hearst endowcil the first campus niasiei plan, now called the " Hearst Plan. " The Neo-C;iassiial architectural style embraced by the U(; Regents reOects their com ic tioii that Berkeley would become the " Athens of the West. " Although tiic Hearst i ' lan was designed by Emile Bernard, John (Jalen 1 loward was responsible for implementing it. I loward was the architect for much of the Neo-Classical core ol the campus, constructed under the auspices of the Hearst Plan. (Examples of Howard ' s work are Doe IJbrary and the Campanile.) Berdahl ' s remarks about Berkeley ' s first master plan, that " a master plan is a statement of determination, hope, and expectations for a campus, " an- c(|ually applicable to the mission of the NewCentuiA I ' l.m. ( anipus planners hope the New (x-niiMv I ' lan will coiilci a sense oi cohesiveness and unit ' to the entire Berkeley campus, gi ing the university an appearance to match its reputation. The New Century Plan considers the possibility of expaiuling beyond the core campus located in Berkeley ami into imi ersity properties located in the nearby communities of Mbany, fJichmond, the Berkeley Hills, and downtown Oakland. The university owns IOC acres of land in Richmond in the area sm rounding Richmond I-ield Station. Rollins said. " The campus has long looked at Richmond as a future possibilit . but has ne er come to closure iis to what tlu ' caniiius would like to achiexc in Rithmoiul. I or the lirst time, we are looking .U a wide ' ariet ' of options to cle elop a critical mass of acti ' it ' to make it attractive. " Ill response to stuili ' iu demand for affordable housing. uni -ersity authorities have been investigating the feasibilit ot lonstnu ting student housing in downtown Oakland. .Mthough IK, Berkele does not mrrently own lain! in ( ),ikland, it has been working closely with the Oakland city governineni to find a suitable site for off-campus siudeiil housing.

Many groups use Lower Sproul Plaza as a place to perform or practice. The developers of the New Century Plan feel that the buildings surrounding Lower Sproul make it an unfriendly place and wish to renovate the area. vacant biiikling that used to house a ChevTolet dealership (owned, curiously enough, by Reggie Jackson). This dormitory would cost roughly 25 million dollars and include, in addition to rooms for students, a grocery store, fitness center, student lounge, and retail outlets. The complex would encompass 30,000 square feet and house up to 500 students. In keeping with the Berkeley tradition of being ecologically conscious, the building would derive its heat from solar panels, and residents would be expected to depend on public transportation or on bicycles, rather than cars. Michael Alfaro, the San Francisco developer who is responsible for this grandoise scheme, claims that it would cost students less to li e in this private dormitory than in university owned buildings. Alfaro, who was once a student at Berkeley, first conceived the idea of building privately funded student housing as an undergraduate. Alfaro ' s project may be the best way to save the historic Art Deco structure, though detractors complain that the building ' s size will be a towering eight stories in comparison with neighboring buildings and will take away from its historic value. If the Berkeley City Council and 1 andinarks Preservation (Commission buih appiovc the project, it will be one of the largest of its kind in Berkeley. Though Alfaro ' s proposal is attractive, it is hut part ot the solution. Too often, the city and the uni ersit ha e indulged in Linconstructive communication, full of bickering, hostility, and power struggles, when what is sorely needed — by both students and residents — is some form of resolution to the city ' s incredible housing shortage. Both the city and the imiversity need to realize that what truly exists in Berkeley is neither a rivalry nor a monopoly, that what transpires in Berkeley on a daily basis is not a tug of war between two rival factions, but a symbiosis where neither partner could survive without the other. Let ' s face it — the city of Berkeley would not exist in its present form if the university were not located here. However, conversely, students would not have access to the same rich variety of resources if it were not located in such close proximity to a " real " city (and not one of those Disney showpieces that stands in for a city these days). Together, students and " permanent " residents make a community, living and working within the same space. Increasing the quality of life in Berkeley should be a priority for both groups. Rather than polarizing along artificial lines, students and residents need to recognize their symbiotic relationship and work to forge a true community of learning antl living. ■ ( ' yntliiti lloung 4 1 A Matter of Tradition The year 2000 gave the world a milestone at which to stand and looit back up on all the ciianges thai happcnetl in the past ten, hundred, and even thousand years.

Many fans attending a Cal vs. Stanford basketball game were shocked to read the lyrics (which were handed out by Rally Committee before the game) to the " California Indian Song.

Feeling that Oski needed a makeover, ASUC Senator Shireen Brueggman submitted to the senate on November 3 Senate Bill 111, " Resolution in Support of revamping Oski. " Stating that the true nature of the mascot and the university ' are drawTi from the appearance of the mascot, that " the current mascot looks like a decrepit old bear, ' and that an " Oski re- amped ma ' be the answer " to team losses, Brueggman urged that the ASUC recjuesl the secret ( )ski ( .omnilttcc update ()ski " s costume.

It is expected to be ready tor use I Fall 2000. The new lab construction is estimated to cost 3pro)dmately $120,000 including the construction of walls, the istallation of electrical and networking infrastructure and quipment, furniture, and campus project management costs. The lultipurpose lab will offer UNIX, and Windows computing n ironments, and will be the only general use lab on campus mailable 24 hours a day. The amazing thing about this new lab is lat it is being created and run all by students! The OCF is a Student Initiated Service Group dedicated to roviding free and useful computing resources to the campus ommunity. Initiated in 1989 as a student run computing center in le basement of Evans Hall, the group provides a popular email and i eb-hosting service for students and student groups, and offers eneral access to UNIX shell accounts as well. The services and acilities of the OCF have been an invaluable computing resource or the students of Berkeley, as well as a great place for students to ;arn the ins and outs of running coinplex computing services. See ittp: for more information about the Open Computing Facility. In the Fall of 1999, Devin lones and Ken Ott took on the Co- Jeneral Manager positions at the Open Computing Facility and set Jut planning and fundraising for the creation of a new facility. At the ime. Heller Lounge in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Student Union vas slated for remodeling as a part of the agreement struck with -oUet Books for their lease on the other half of the second floor of he building. Optimistically, the lab was set to be installed over the ollowing winter break, but a variety of factors postponed the :onstruction until mid-spring. Ott and lones found that the process 3f building a new lab was not at all simple. The desired location of :he lab was being used for yearbook photo shoots and archival storage. There were also concerns about the ability of the OCF to raise sufficient funds for the completion of the lab. After the location and expense matters were settled, vacations anil contractor availabilitv caused further delays in construction. Meanuliile, as more people became aware of the project and contributed ideas and suggestions, changes in the project specifications caused contractors to back out of the bidding process or revise bids, resulting in higher costs, which made additional fundraising necessary. While fundraising, the staff of the OCF appealed to the ASUC Senate. With the help and support of ASUC President Patrick Campbell, Executive Vice President Connor Moore, and their assistant Jamal Artis, they secured approximately $47,000 from the ASUC over the course of the project. To raise additional money for the new lab, each semester Jones arranged a " High-Tech Startup Jobs Fair, " where new high-tech companies would pay for the opportunity to recruit C students in the Pauley Ballroom for an afternoon. The proceeds from these events totaled over $40,000. An additional $30,000 was donated to the project by the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) department through an agreement struck between EECS Department Chair Christos Papadimitriou and Devin Jones, with the approval of the OCF Board of Directors. Donations of equipment were secured from the EECS department, and negotiated with computer equipment resellers. Since the OCF consists of unpaid volunteers, the ongoing costs to the ASUC should be very modest — supporting electrical bills. equipment maintenance, and upgrades. To design the space, lones and Ott worked with the SUC Building Operations staff, Tom Baker and lohn Ostrowski. Since it will be the only lab available 24 hours a day, the OCF Board of Directors expects that this lab will be a crucial resource for students that need a place to work on a paper late into the night. As the only general use lab offering access to UNIX operating systems, it will be a great place for students to learn about the various operating systems that run the Internet. In the future, the OCF will explore the support of differerU interai tion modalities to meet the needs of a variety of disabled students, which are not met by the majority of the computing centers on campus. Students wishing to gain useful computing experience while still in school, as well as almnni interested in donating to the efforts of the Open Computing Facility, are encouraged to contact ■ Devin Junes V?

Ihis is opening night for the Berkeley Business Plan (Competition, the big night where competitors meet their enemies and company representatives hungrily scout for talent. Berkeley students who dream of running their own businesses got a chance to take a crack at the bat in this year ' s Berkeley Business Plan Competition. Winners of the 2000 1 laas Berkeley Business Plan Competition walked away with $50,000 in prizes, as well as the promise of future venture cajiiial luiuling. The Berkeley Business Plan competition is one of many similar competitions sponsored by business schools across the nation. The oldest such conipetition is the Moot Competition, which is held at the University of le.xas at Austin. Business plan competitions, such as the Moot Competition, were initially conceived as a chance for business students to practice skills and concepts honed in the classroom in a concrete setting. When students engage in the act of designing and writing a realistic, workable business plan, they are forced to reac li beyond abstract, academic principles and face the complex world beyond the university. However, in recent years, business plan competitions have begun to take on another aspect, dangling the promise of wealth in the form of venture capital. The Berkeley Business Plan (Competition is a young program Willi Ihe 2000 competition, the Berkeley program steps into its second e.ii ofoperation.

" Berkeley ' s competition is separated into four stages. The first stage is open to any team that includes at least one Berkeley student or alumni. During this stage, teams or individuals who are interested in entering the competition go through a series of workshops with such varied subjects as " How to write a good executive summary, " " Legal issues, " and " Management team selection. " The Entrepreneur ' s Exchange, a web-based forum, allows participants to contact individuals who share their interests and want to collaborate on a competition entry. During this stage, all the competitors submit a two to three page executive summary, detailing their " business concept, market opportunity, competitive advantage, resources required, and members qualifications. " Sbcty-five proposals are chosen to advance to " Round One, " where each team elaborates upon their original proposals, submitting twenty-five pages of detailed plans. By the time Round Two rolls around, there are only eight surviving teams. These eight finalists must present their proposals (using PowerPoint, the tool of choice) to a panel of special finalist judges and then to the general public. The finiilist judges themselves are pedigreed Silicon Valley industry leaders. The judges for the 2000 competition were Steve Domenik, Mark Gorenberg, Susan Mason, Neil Weintraut, Rebecca Robertson, and Gary Rieschel. Of the judges, all but one hold engineering degrees, one is an UC Berkeley alumnus (Steve Domenik), and all are affiliated with prominent Silicon Valley venture capital funds. ■ Cynthia Houng i Consistently ranked as the best public university in the nation, UC Berkeley continues to prove that the " Athens of the West " is more than a meeting place for radicals and hippies. The California state constitution, written in 1849, required the state legislature to " encourage by all suitable means the promotion of intellectual, scientific, moral and agricultural improvement, " and an obvious result of this requirement was UC Berkeley. One hundred and thirty- two years later, Cal claims among its accomplishments the isolation of the human polio virus, fifteen Nobel Prizes, numerous Pulitzer Prizes, and the discovery of all elements heavier than uranium. Academic Outreacli: Reaching Out and Sharing die Light Berkeley Pledge Preserving Diversity Equity Ashley Daley : Why was the Berkeley Pledge founded? Anita Madrid : Ihe Berkeley Pledge was a very quick reaction to our university ' regents passing |in 1995] what is now called Regents Directive SPl that banned affirmative action in college admission policy. Understanding the devastation tliat would bring on the university, our chancellor [Chang- Lin Tien] went forward with a message called the pledge that said the university would keep its pledge to maintain access to all students, especially California high school graduates; implicit in that pledge is the preservation of equity and the preservation of diversity. AD : How did you go about putting the Berkeley Pledge together? AM : The first project was to work with a Berkeley task force to talk about how we would focus our work. The report [put forth by the task forcel called " Preserving Diversity " gave a fairly broad direction for how we would engage with schools, beef up our recruiting efforts in the state of California, how we would distribute funds to existing outreach programs and how we would we improve the transfer process [to UC Berkeley]. Building that foundation in the first year was extraordinarily difficult but there was quite a bit of freedom to be exercised. One of the first things 1 did was inventory and I was overwhelmed with the number of outreach services the university offered to schools. We decided that in the absence of affirmative action policy our engagement with the K-12 comniunily would require us to go into the classrooms as much as possible and to help the schools balance Ihe equity scales. We had not done that in the last 30 years. In the early ' 60s in the Civil Rights Movement the university reacted immediately and quickly to diversify their own student body. It ' s clear that the playing field in K-12 has always been uneven. It is necessary to find the playing field and then level it and make sure that there are high expectations for all the children and that they all have access to college preparatory classes. This meant adding another layer to existing outreach programs. I iliink ih;ii ihc other step we had to like was Kj bring together that knowledge base [of various programs serving the K- 1 2] . Another step was engaging the teachers in a true equal partnership where the goals are the same and are shared but where we also respect the differences between our two institutions. As long as we have the same goals for the children ' s achievement we could join on a very stable ground. For one thing the university pushes the edges of knowledge. It is on the frontier of knowledge and overturning the existing theories of knowledge; K-12 teaches existing theories. In the past what has been taught in the schools is ten to twenty years behind what the faculty are researching. AD : What are the goals of the program? AM : Ihe initial four goals of the program were to intensify our work vvitli K-12 outreach, to enhance our recruitment throughout the state of California, to remove any financial barriers for our own undergraduates who enroll here and raise scholarship money, and to enhance and improve our own academic support and em ichment services for our students, undergraduate and graduate. AD : How does the Berkeley Pledge function? What are the mechanisms involved in running it? AM : My work is to coDidiuiUi ' many other complex organizations. There are 25 outreach programs IiuoIm ' cI w iili tlic Pledge.

It is very important liiat our outreach programs set benchmarics. AD : Could you give some examples of the types of outreach programs the Pledge is associated with? AM : Our outreach programs are very effective if they try less to do a very broad preparation of children in all subjects and develop expertise in a particular subject. We have eight different programs that have done outreach in mathematics. They teamed up together in one district [West Contra Costa] looking at K-12 mathematics and how the curriculum was structured. We have programs at certain intervention points like in high school. The Professional Development Program oversees tutoring of students after school in a seminar and co- teaching wdth teachers in the classroom. It ' s not clear to me yet that we have to be at every grade level, but if we are there at elementary school, middle school and high school we can find out more easily where we need to be. When a program of a team has incredible success, the next stage is to grow it at the school and then to see whether we can transplant it. The third stage for outreach is for the school to su stain the outreach work wdthout our presence or vdth minimal presence from our outreach programs and thereby allow the outreach programs to move on to other schools. I would like to see programs in science, writing, and literacy, the underpinning subject areas for college preparation. AD : What kind of schools do you try to target first? AM : We target low-performing schools in inner city, urban areas surrounding the campus. As a rule, these are schools the districts have selected and have high populations of students on free or reduced lunch fees and at the high school level have low college- going rates. Some of the schools have unequal access for minority students versus non-minority student to the college preparatory curriculum. AD : How are Cal students involved with the program? AM : I think we are really blessed to have so many Cal undergraduates that have a service commitment to the community. They have been the primary engines of that work in outreach by tutoring, mentoring, coaching other tutors and working with the teachers. They are incredible and the graduate students who oversee the undergraduates or work closely with faculty are too. ■ Interview conducted by Ashley Daley Anita Madrid is Director of the Berkeley Pledge. ' . Berkeley Alliance 3 Powerful Partners shley Daley : How was the Berkeley Alliance formed and who is ivolved with running it? aleb Dardick : The Berkeley Alliance was formed in October 1997 nd it is a joint partnership of UC Berkeley, the city of Berkeley nd the school district |in Berkeley). It has an executive ommittee that includes the chancellor and vice chancellor, the layor, a council member, the school board president and another ;hool board member. So you can see it ' s a very top-level dministrator in each of the three partners. That is not to say they re the only partners. We can make partnerships, project related r w hatever, with anybody. They are the core group that govern and make decisions and provide funding. Then under that is something we call the management committee which consists of senior management officials in each of those places: the superintendent of schools, the city manager and another vice chancellor and then their immediate staff. So they are basically the day-to-day positions. We have an advisory committee of about 20 to 25 local people in the Berkeley community, everything from non- profit organization directors to activists to philanthropists. Finally, we have a staff. I am the interim director and I work for UC Berkeley and we also have a full-time administrative assistant and we hire a number of Cal undergrads as interns. AD : What was the idea behind lorniing the project? CD : The idea behind it was ihat Berkeley is an incredibly rich and talented conununiiy ami ihese organizations |the three Berkeley Alliance partners! really form the backbone and engines ot our community, yet they don ' t necessarily always work together that efficiently or effectively although they do from time to time. Someone often will say when involved iii a project, " Wouldn ' t it be great if the university could help us figure out how to do that? " or " Wouldn ' t it be great if the city could do this? " Hveryone always speculates about " what if " there were such partnerships. The Berkeley Alliance is the realization of the great " what if. " All three major partners came together and said, " Yes, we will donate our resources and our talents for the benefit of the entire community. " This was clearly an issue that everyone could buy into. Now we didn ' t set out to solve the problem. ' s a problem that has been going on for years and it ' s going to i ontlniie to he a challenge lor decades, but we set out to bring tlu ' resources ot all the community together to identify the causes (of the achievement gapl. Why in Berkeley? We ' re Berkeley. We ' re the first city to voluntarily de-segregate schools in the early ' fiOs. We ' ve always experimented with education. We were pioneers in the civil rights movement. It ' s a very progressive area and nobody thinks they ' re a racist, so why do we have this difference? We need to figure out what is happening and then once we figure out what is happening and agree on those causes, then recommend solutions for closing that gap. So that ' s our work plan for the year. AD : How did working on education become a priority for the Berkeley Alliance? CD : In May 1 1999] we had a meeting of all three groups and decided what our priorities were going to be. We basically compared two planning models, the little spider plan and the big spider plan. The big spider plan basically shows the Berkeley Alliance in the center and every good issue, every important issue from homelessness to affordable housing to the need for good, efficient transportation to reform of the education system. Every problem was out there and Alliance would somehow play matchmaker matching up the people who were interested in various causes. The other one [the little spider plan] said, " Look that ' s just crazy. The whole point is to be coordinated. Let ' s pick one issue that really matters to everybody. " We defined it and made it a high priority project which is of value to all three partners and which could not be accomplished except by working together. The issue that we picked in May was the achievement gap. Basically the achievement gap is the term that we use when you separate student test scores by race and ethnicity and you find that some students are not doing as well, on average, as others. Specifically, African-Americans and Latinos underperform white and Asian students by an average of a 75-point national difference. On average there is this huge discrepancy which has huge implications so it ' s not only oi concern to the schools that want every child to have equal opportunity, get the same resources and have the best chance, but also for universities like UC Berkeley. That ' s a concern for UC Berkeley because uc know that post- Proposition 209 many African-Americans are not able to get in because they don ' t have the scores. Finally for society, if we have two classes and it ' s racially divided, we ' re not moving toward what we all aspire to which is a racially integrated world. AD : What is the Freshman Project and how does it work? CD : There are many philosophies about where you start to help people and generally where we notice the biggest gap is in high school and we notice the gap because when it becomes time to graduate some seniors are going to Harvard and some seniors aren ' t graduating at all. Some people have argued effectively that this same gap exists in kindergarten or in second grade where some second graders are going to third grade without being able to read at all. All of those are different ways to attack the gap and we wanted to start somewhere and the idea was to start with ninth grade because that year is such a difficult transition for students to leave the relative safety of middle school for high school. Berkeley only has one public high school so all the kids from the whole area all go to Berkeley High. It ' s over 3, 000 students and a lot of kids fall A tirsl grader learns math concepts with colorful blocks. 5 Academics through the cracks and get lost. There is one counselor lor the entire freshman class. For 832 students they have one counselor. So it is clear to us that we needed to have the chance to just touch base with every ninth grader and their parents and say, " The decisions you make as a ninth grader now will have an impact on your options as a senior. " We put together a guide book called How to Achieve and Succeed ot Berkeley High School and then something called What You Need to Know About Your Options After Berkeley High. We ■wanted to bring in ninth graders and their parents to meet with a trained volunteer and have this conversation. There are 30 Cal students that got their training through an ED- 197 course. There are about 65 community members that were recruited at random and trained. They met one-on-one with our students and our turnout over 10 nights was about 350 students, just under half. The next challenge was how to reach the rest. We got the support of the teachers and the administrators to take the kids out of class in groups of 10 to 15. At the end of the process we had met with 700 of the students. Some of the kids we didn ' t reach speak English as a second language and we will be working during the second semester to reach them with other strategies. AD : What kind of response did you get from the students? CD : The feedback has been fantastic. We gave written evaluations to every student, their parents and the volunteers and close to two thirds were highly satisfied and almost all of the rest were satisfied. There was very little negativity. The school district has been ecstatic to have that peer support and community support. They love that the Alliance is recruiting college students and community members and bringing them to the school and really interfacing with the lives of young people. A McClymonds High student looks at an image of herself on a digital still camera screen photographed by Oakland School District entomologist Ed Dunbar. throughout the community to work on a literacy project that is targeted on second graders. We want to make sure that every second grader in Berkeley goes into third grade reading at grade level. What we know is that there are about 700 second graders and that 29% of them will not be reading at grade level when they enter third grade. We want to do more with the high school including apprenticeship programs, mentorship opportunities and chances to go to schools and learn about careers. AD : I heard that the high school students might participate in a job shadowing program. CD : This is still in the planning stages. What we would do is put all ninth graders over the course of a week out into real jobs in Berkeley. 1 think the way we are going to do that is in groups as a field trip so that a teacher and 15 to 30 students will go to Alta Bates or Sybase and spend the day learning how that organization works. I think that will be a success. AD : Are you planning on tackling the achievement gap in other areas that you mentioned, like at the kindergarten level? CD : We are going to attack it at all levels. What we have created is a student achievement committee that is chaired by the superintendent of Berkeley schools and includes two school board members and other leading educators in town to try to come up with solutions. Some of the preliminary solutions start at 0-3 [years old] which is the pre-natal to natal initiative. We are seeing that if a mother doesn ' t have proper pre-natal and nco-natal care, the child will be at a disadvantage. If there isn ' t parent education at the very beginning including how to care for one ' s child and making sure they are healthy and able to learn there are effects. We are seeing that there is so much before the child even enters kindergarten that affects their abilitv ' to succeed later. We are putting together something called Berkeley Kids Reads!. We will recruit volunteers AD : How is the Berkeley Alliance funded? CD : The Alliance is funded by contributions from the three partners. We have funding for about three years. Our hope is to write grants to foundations for federal grants and foundation grants that will help us implement the various education programs that we ' re after, but keep in mind the Alliance ' s long-term vision is not just education. It could be anything. The idea is that we ' ll do them one at a time. AD : Do you have any plans for expanding beyond the education goals at this time? CD : We ' re focusing on education for right now, but I believe the next major issue will be affordable housing. I think that ' s an issue that is important to students and to maintain a diverse population in Berkeley and it ' s an interest of all the partners. ■ Interview conducted by Ashley Daley Caleb Dardick is interim Director of the Berkeley Alliance. 5 5 Bay Area Urban Debate Public Speaking Returns to Local Schools 1 hanks to a new Berkeley outreach program, the Bay Area Urban Debate League (BAUD), pubHc high school hallways are filled with a new sound: students debating on reform in the nation ' s schools. BAUD, sponsored by the Political Science Department, works with high schools in economically disadvantaged areas to build competitive debate teams. The program was founded in June of 1999 and held its first event, a week- long summer training camp, in August on the UC Davis campus. BAUD provides schools with administrative and curricular assistance, teacher and student training, college student debate coaches, summer debate camp opportunities, and monthly tournaments through a $190,000 grant (with a commitment of additional funds for two successive years) from financier George Soros ' Open Society Institute (OSI). As part of its national effort to address issues of inequity, OSI has funded similar programs in Atlanta at Hmory University — their model program, as well as in New York, Chicago, Tuscaloosa, Kansas City, St. Louis, Detroit, Southern California, and Baltimore. BAUD also received a $36,000 grant in the fall from the Berkeley Pledge. This grant funds teacher and undergraduate college coach mentor stipends, curriculum development, and additional training. It will also allow the program to build a lecture series featuring UC graduate students with expertise in areas related to debate. The BAUD staff became interested in creating debate opportunities after recognizing that students from under-served schools often graduate without the analytical, research, and speaking skills necessary to succeed in college, professional life and public life in their communities. Ed Lee, director of the prograin and former Atlanta Urban Debate League participant, explains that " no other pedagogical tool can match policy debate in its ahiiiiy lo build confidence and critical thinking and connect students to the world beyond iIkh communities. 1 he process ot di ' h:iliri iianstoinis participants from passive receptacles of intoiniaiion dnwiiinadcd into their brains into empowered students with a sense of ownership of their education and lives.

No latter what their motivation, they learn to think critically, search complex issues, improve their reading skills, and express leir arguments articulately. After graduation, successful debaters have opportunities to win jllege scholarships and or assistance with financial aid offices at niversities such as Arizona State, Emory, New York University, orthwestern, San Francisco State University, UC Berkeley, hitman College, and many more. For UC Berkeley, the program is a wonderful opportunity to !ach out to students and prepare them for the rigors of college :udies. Robert Price, chair of the Political Science Department, Dmments that " this program offers high school students a means ) develop the skills they will need to get into college and succeed nee they are there. " In addition, student coaches from both UC erkeley and San Francisco State University will serve as valuable role models and mentors for the high school debaters. " The college student coaches go to their assigned school on a weekly basis to meet with students and teachers. During these meetings, college coaches help students develop strategies, practice their debating skills and research a variety of topics. In return, the college students gain valuable teaching skills from the classroom teachers as well as new perspectives from working with a diverse group of Bay Area teens. The program has had enormous success in its first year and response to the program has been overwhelmingly positive. BAUD has worked with two hundred students over the past year from twelve high schools including Emery, Castlemont, Oakland Technical, McClymonds, De Anza, Kennedy, Middle College, Balboa, Galileo, Washington, McAteer and International Studies Academy. Since August, BAUD has held two training conferences in addition to its monthly debate tournaments held on the UC Berkeley campus. BAUD has received special recognition from the City of Emeryville and from California State Senator Don Perata. The program has also been featured in several articles in the West County Times and the Oakland Tribune. The program is directed by Ed Lee. Mr. Lee began his debate career as a senior at Harper High School in Atlanta when an English teacher suggested he join the Atlanta Urban Debate League. He did, and a year later he was off to the University of Alabama on a debate scholarship. Later he enrolled as a graduate student in the University ' of Alabama ' s Department of Communication where he helped coach the debate team and worked with the Tuscaloosa Urban Debate League program. He received his M.A. in 1999 prior to moving out to join the Bay Area Urban Debate program. The assistant director of the program, Heather Gough, began debating in 1991 at El Cerrito High School. She debated at the University of Oregon for two years before coming to UC Berkeley where she received a B.A. in political science in May of 1999. She has worked extensively with community based debate programs in the Bay Area as well as in Washington State and Hawaii. The program is administered by an executive committee chaired by Michael Clough, a research associate at the Institute of International Studies who won the National Collegiate Debate Championship as a student at UC Santa Barbara in the early 1970 ' s. The program ' s director of debate is Shawn Whalen, who directs the debate program at San Francisco State University and teaches in the Communications Department. ■ Headier Gough M 5 7 ' Brill oino tlie Arts Back into ArtsBridge program enriches Each lull, the talent of Berkeley High School students is showcased in theater productions, art exhibits, music concerts and team sports. But for students who make films and videos, no venue exists. " We want a way to express our abilities too, " said Walker Koppelman-Brown. a budding filmmaker anti junior at Berkeley High. Koppelman-Brown and his fellow film enthusiasts are getting their wish, thanks to the help of two UC Berkeley students, who created an eight-week course to teach the teenagers how to curate their omi film festival. Meeting with the high school students once a week, Maria c;havez, a senior majoring in journalism, film and mass communication, and Alesandra Dubin, a senior majoring in fihn and i;nglish, share their knowledge of organizing film festivals. They are assisted by Pacific Film Archive curator Kathy Geritz. " We talk with them about things like publicity, criteria for selecting films, writing acceptance and rejection letters and logistics, " said Dubin. " We also discuss how to view a film from a curatorial point of view and the importance of placement and ordering of the films in the festival. " " Who knows, we may have a future Steven Spielberg out there, " said Chavez. " We ' d hate to have that person be discouraged and quit because they have no outlet for their art.

Chavez and Dubin are two of tirty-seven ArtsBridge Scholars, selected from more than sixty applicants, who each received $1,200 to create art-related courses for students and teachers in low- performing K-12 schools this fall. Forty- five students submitted applications for the spring semester. To be considered as scholars, students must be majoring or minoring in an arts program on campus. Disciplines include drawing and painting, dance, music, film, creative writing, art history and photography. Students applying for the scholarship must create an intensive program that develops awareness or facility ' in the arts or uses the arts to sujiport other academic disciplines. thice selocled, scholars are assigned faculty advisers who help develop the curriculum for the workshop. The scholars are then matched with teachers at host schools selected foi participation in the ArtsBridge program.

" Even those ho have poor reading skills can hold a young audience captive by ading a simple story book. " Because of her experience at Longfellow, Petty is now ansidering a teaching career. " These students have an artistic gift that they ' ve had the pportunity to develop here at Berkeley, " said Craig Nagasawa, cting director of Berkeley ' s ArtsBridge program. " They want to use leir talent to give back to the community in some way. " Unfortunately, said Nagasawa, there are more schools seeking Academics participation than available scholars. Their need stems in part from budget shortages that force schools to cut or eliminate art programs. " Because the educational benefits of art are difficult to quantify, these programs are particularly vulnerable, " he said. " But art can help any kind of learning. It involves processes that are common to many other creative pursuits, such as math and science. " And for kids who have trouble understanding certain concepts through more traditional methods, said Nagasawa, presenting the material using art can greatly improve their comprehension. " Some students may not ' get it ' through reading or listening to the teacher, " he said. " Using a creative visual or audio presentation of material can sometimes make all the difference. " ■ D.

Behind one door visionaries hat have trekked from the areas surrounding the Berkeley :ommunity are at work, putting their plans and dreams into lotion. They are anxious to exchange ideas with their peers md gain guidance on their lewest ideas. This group is comprised of about forty high school students who are participating in the Young Entrepreneurs Program at Haas. They come from about twenty high schools including public high schools in Oakland, Richmond and Berkeley. The program helps disadvantaged youth to understand business principles. A high school student discusses his real estate business with his mentor. and to analyze information according to Roberta Joyner, executive director of the East Bay Outreach Program which coordinates the YEAH program. " They get a curriculum that helps them design and develop a business plan to start their own business, " Joyner said. " The program really tries to get them excited about business. It gives them a way to connect academic learning with hands-on business. " " The underlying goal |of the program] is to help youth plan for college and know exacdy what they need to be taking in school in order to get to either the community college, the state college or the UC system, " she continued. The program has several economic principles, technology and uses of technology, to improve their math concepts, to increase their ability to make presentations, phases. During the first, participants attend a two-week intensive summer program.

They also go on field trips to venues such as the Gap headquarters or the Pacific Stock Exchange in San I-rancisco. I he field trips give participants an opportunity to speak with executives and present them with articulate questions, according to Joyner. The second part of the program involves pairing students with a volunteer MBA graduate student from Haas in the fall. Mentors help participants to construct their business plans and offer lips on applying to college. They also prepare their mentees to appear before the venture capital board in the spring. " My business plan is to buy real estate at a low price, fix il up and then put it back on the market at a competitive and profitable price, " said Richmond High School junior Ivan Chavez. " 1 would like to go to college and get my degree in civil engineering and tlun get into my business. Right now I want to do as much research as I can and get as many contacts as I can so that when I am ready Ito start my business] they will be there for me. " Chavez plans on pitching his idea to the venture capital board i and proving to them that his business is profitable. " The students pitch their business idea to faculty, MBA students, and business leaders (the venture capital board), " Joyner said. They can earn up to $500 in grant money that can be used to subsidize some of their educational costs or it can be applied to buying a product for tin ' ir business.

St. Mary ' s High School sophomore Marcus Turner is trying to start his own record label and he and his friends are currently working on an album. " I have learned that starting my own business is going to be more of a challenge than I thought, " Turner remarked. Students apply to participate in the program and are selected based on ihcir passion and commitment to their business idea and their interest in going to college, according to Joyner.

" ■ Ashley l ' alcy Academics Beyond Berkeley Professor takes on position as coordinator of UC outreach programs Professor Alex Saragoza teaches his students about the deterioration of California public schools. His work with the university outreach programs will help to heal the suffering school systems. UC Berkeley professor Alex Saragoza has seen many changes in his 15 years at the university. He has seen the end of affirmative action. He has seen students take over Barrows Hall to protest suggested budget cuts to the ethnic studies department. He has seen the number of underrepresented minorities dwindle while students and staff employ fierce attempts to increase diversity. Now the associate professor plans to leave his beloved teaching post and take on the new challenge of coordinating outreach programs for the 10 UC campuses. Saragoza was named the next UC systemwide vice president for educational outreach at a mid-March Board of Regents meeting. The professor, who has taught in the ethnic studies department since 1986, is expected to oversee the UC system ' s growing effort to prepare a greater number of underrepresented minorities for the rigors of a top-level university. The Daily Californian: When will you be starting your new position, and wall it be a full-time job? Alex Saragoza: I ' ll start on July 1. My predecessor, Karl Pister, who is an ex-dean at the school of engineering here, will be stepping down on Jime 30. It will be a full-time job, although I do hope to be able to teach at least one course per year — probably a seminar-type situation. Realistically, I probably wouldn ' t start that until the spring semester of next year. I ' ll let the fall semester be a learning curve for me in terms of how much time 1 would be able to give to a course. DC: The ethnic studies department has faced a lot of challenges recently. How do you think they will deal with your leaving? AS: 1 know that my leaving the department at this time comes not at the ideal time. We are going through a very important tratisition and 1 have been very much involved in that transition. I know that my absence will be difficult. DC: What are some of your outreach goals? AS: The goals of the position are essentially to sustain the diversity of the students who enter the University of California and, secondly, to improve upon the access for higher education for disadvantaged students. Those are the two basic goals. We have developed — the university as a whole and not just for Berkeley — a number of different programs that are intended to address those two objectives. The intent of this office is to coordinate those efforts, both emanating from the office of the president as well as those initiated by each individual campus. DC: What do you see as the major challenges standing in your way? AS: One of the major challenges of this job is the question of coordinating, of doing more things that are in concert with each other, and to enlist the campuses in an articulated campaign to 6 1 meet these two objectives. What has happened is that eacli campus has developed its own programs relative to these objectives. With this new infusion of resources for this effort into the office of the president, there is no way we can accomplish these goals without working more closely with the indi idual campuses. Ihis leads to a second major issue, ami that is, each campus has its own problems of coordination. These programs have developed over time and as a consequence, even on individual campuses, there is a lack of optimal coordination. There is a lack of optimal effectiveness and efficiency in these different types of programs. In that sense that are two levels I will be dealing with in this new |)()sition. not onK on i lie systemwide level but also working with the individual campuses to enhance our efforts. There has been some redundancy, there ' s been overlap, miscommuiiication — all kinds of things of that nature. DC: What specifically do you need to do to overcome these obstacles? AS: There are a number of steps 1 lu ' t ' d in do. Kccji in mind 1 haven ' t been on the job and I have to be somewhat general because I don ' t know enough ;iIkiui the specific workings of each individual componcnl that I ' ll be dealing with. One of the first things 1 need to do is to improve the communication between the office of the president and the campuses. That means I need to go to each individual campus, see where they are at in their efforts to bring greater organizational capacity and efficiency. UC Riverside is not UC Berkeley. In this respect the office of the president has to i)e able to be flexible eiioiigli If) recognize those differences and tailor our efforts aiui om programs in such a way so that it accommodates the distinctive situation ol I K ' Riverside versus an Irvine versus a Santa Ba rbara versus a Berkeley. Secondly, what I need to do is | work very closely with individuals on the campuses to make sure that we are on top of their problems in ways that my office would be able to alleviate those problems if i possible. Each campus is distinct and has a different kiiul ot audience, different problems of outreach. In general terms, I think we are trying to move very quickly and sometimes in the rush to do something we are not always as efficient or as careful as we need to be. I think what I ' ll be trying to do is to make sure we use our resources as effectively as possible and not just throw money at the problem and hope for the best. DC: Will your efforts be aimed at the university level or at K- 12? AS: One of the major components of my job will be working with K- 12 education. In this respect, this is another area I hope to improve upon by creating better linkages, better mechanisms that link the K- 12 educational process, the schools, the campuses and the office of the [iresident so that we have a very well- coordinated triangle. DC: How did you feel when you learned you had been selected? AS: I was surprised to some extent by ilie tact that tlieic are a number of people in the system whose main body of work ami research has been on issues related to educational outreach, whether it is people looking at it primarily from the education side, or people who are looking at the issue of class and race, people who, are looking at it in terms of immigration. I DC: What skills or experience do you think you have to offer the position? AS: My sense is that in my case, among the assets that I brought to ny application is the fact that I ' ve worked for a longtime with K-12 ichools. I ' ve worked both at the ground level — everything from utoring in schools to providing workshops to teachers — about the •:eaching of various subjects. I ' ve also been involved in understanding the larger problems of K-12. For three years I served as the UC representative to the histor ' , social science project intended to help teachers in K-12 in the teaching of history and social science. 1 got to talk to a lot of teachers. I got to know the different types of learning environments that exist in the state of California — everything from your tough inner city high school in south L.A. to rural schools with very tiny populations. I think I also brought an awareness and sensitvity to the importance of the faculty to this effort. I was chair for the committee on educational policy, and that allowed me an opportunity to examine and understand in a systemwide way the question of ■education, in terms of UC and particularly the concerns of faculty. Most recently I was on the admissions committee here on the campus, and that gave me the opportunity to understand the admissions process, how our admissions process is different from UCLA and UCLA is different from UC San Diego. Finally, I think I ' ve had a lot of administrative experience, particularly educational administration, as opposed to administering non-educational units. I think that was important because for this job ' to work well, it has to bring in the faculty in a substantive, coordinate, deliberate way. In the past, too often the a Academics DC: Why did you decide to apply for the post? AS: I hesitated in applying. Ihe original deadline passed and the committee decided to extend the search because they were not completely happy with the pool of candidates that applied in the first phase of the search. I hesitated for two reasons. One was family reasons. I knew the job would take a lot of time away from my family and I was reluctant to accept that liability that comes with the job. The second reason is I thoroughly enjoy being here at Berkeley and being in this department. However, I got a letter, I got phone calls — " please apply, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by applying. " DC: Was it hard to commit yourself to the job? AS: I did hesitate. I had to speak to my family. Not only my immediate family. I have a mom who is very ill, she has Parkinson ' s disease. I try to help out as much as I can on the weekends. My sister is now living wfith my mom and " " " " " " " " shouldering an extraordinary burden there. 1 had to think very carefully. I think what I ' ll be trying to do is to make sure we use our resources as effectively as possible and not just throw DC: What made you finally decide to accept the offer? AS: I think my daughter is the one that convinced me. 1 do believe that most parents, most fathers, want the best for their money at the problem and hope loyearoid daughters, i have thegreat privilege of providing tor the best. 1 1 my daughter with opportunities, a lot of enrichment, whether it ' s math camps or coming to the Lawrence Hall of Science. yy involvement of the faculty has been episodic, uneven and ad hoc. For all those reasons, I became a viable candidate. There were obviously other excellent candidates. There are a lot of poor parents, a lot of working parents who can ' t do that for their kids, and 1 can contribute to what I know is true of most parents. They want the best for their kids.B Renada Rutmanis Copyright 2000, The Daily Californian. Reprinted with permission. If Digital CurricLiliiin UC System Plans to Utilize Internet to OtYer Advanced Placement Classes UC system officials plan to use the Internet to augment the carefully constructed array of outreach programs they have designed to level the college admissions playing field. The latest incarnation of the university ' s multi-layered outreach effort is comprised of a program that offers online courses to high school students. Currently in its experimental phase, the UC College Preparatory Initiative offers online AP courses to high school students throughout the state. University administrators hope the program will increase the number of underrepresented minority students eligible for admission to the UC system. " UC is facing significant challenges, " said UC Santa Cruz Chancellor M.R.C. Greenwood, whose school is leading the initiative. " This is especially an issue for us because of the inequitable distribution of AP courses. This is an innovative, real- time effort to level the playing field. " At one oftheir meetings this fall, the WC Board of Regents viewed a portion of a sample cyber-lecture. Incorporating both audio and visual components, the online geometry lecture was conducted and partially designed by a mathematics instructor. Regents lauded the course for its simple, straight-forward presentation of mathematical concepts. One thing that caught their attention was the amount of repetition it contained — a feature that makes the course user-friendly. Elaine ' Mieeler, the preparatory program ' s project director, said the online classes provide an educational ()p,)()rtuniiy lii.ii remains unavailable to many students. Many disadvantaged high school students do not have access to a broad range of advanced placement courses because there is not enough room in classes, or because there is a lack of teachers with the proper expertise, Wheeler said. " liic groups wc anticipate we will serve are those that have gap in tiu ' curriculum, " she said. " In many cases, our target schools are in I iiral areas or areas that are financially disadvantaged. " rhe project is currently being piloted in urban Southern C alifornia counties such as San Diego and Imperial, and in rural Central California counties, like Merced and Kern, Wheeler said. Because the program is in its infancy, Wlieeler said the organizers of the project are still examining how to iron the kinks out of the program. " We are looking at research information about what AP courses arc most needed and what courses already exist, " she explained. " We don ' t want to duplicate any of the courses that are currently j being offered. We want to keep quality at the forefront. " Even though the initiative has been portrayed as a model i outreach program, some have said Internet courses disrupt the typical learning process, in which a teacher and student interact face to face. Some education specialists have said they are not entirely comfortable with the idea of offering high school courses over the Internet. Nina GabeIko, a UC Berkeley researcher in the Graduate School of Education, said online classes alone would not allow students to fully learn Advanced Placement course material. " Kids learn in very different ways and different modalities, " GabeIko said. " Every student requires different modalities. You need With |,ni()(,ims like UC Berkeley ' s, AiI.k.i .-) Hltituniunl classes, and help for tliebc classes, are moving from the printed form to the computer screen. 6 4 Academics iteiiR ' tion w illi a li ' aiin ' i. ou lu ' ed to Iumi (llic inalcrial) aiul sec it. " She added that she had liit;li hopes lot the prot iaiii and anted it to work, but said the online courses would only lie truly fective if the material were presented as a supplement to real uman teachers. Echoing Galbelko ' s comments, []C Regent Meredith Khachigian iid that although she supports the idea of offering Advanced lacement courses to disadvantaged students, she was concerned lat taking the teacher out of the educational process could reduce ae efficacy of classes. " I am just concerned about the quality of the course, " ihachigian said. " I still think learning is better between a teacher nd a student in the same room. " But other officials, including UC President Richard Atkinson, |.ave maintained that the initiative is currently in a " preliminary " ihase and has not et been finalized. Regent ' elma Montoya acknowledged that the online courses lone will not meet the needs of disadvantaged students. But ilontoya added that when online courses are coupled with strong caching, the initiative could be one of the most effective outreach •rograms that the university has employed to date. " 1 see it as a very positive experiment, " she said. " 1 think it ' s ;oing to fill a niche. " ■ Ty Tosdal :op Tight 2000, The Daily Califoniiciii. Reprinted with permission.

Everyone here in Berkeley knows the feeMng: showing up first day, freshman year, prepared to wow the world with newfound Berkeley knowledge and worldliness only to find yourself as one among 30,000 other students, swamped in a class of 500 knowing that no one will ever learn your name. Most people figure their way around tliis initial shock: they meet the person next to them in class, form study groups, and work out a niche for themselves amongst the many faces that make up this broad and diverse campus. But how do you find these groups if you are a woman in a field that is stcreotypically male — where people may not take you seriously, where people, even in the 21st century, may think you don ' t belong, and where there are very few fellow females just for these reasons?

I liiici woken up. showered, sh;i ed. eaten breakfast- everything routine, everything scripted. 1 lovvever, that day was different. As 1 prepared to hegin my interview with Kiki herself, I could sense something alive in this woman. I looked at her and saw in her eyes all of the joys and tribulations she had experienced, but all of those trials had brought her here today. For a moment, I was concerned that she might be shy or withheld and that tills inter iew would be forced and unpleasant. All of those fears tloated away the second 1 started to speak with Kiki. . s her sweet, niellilliious ()ice filled the cafe we sat in, I gave myself to her. I was ready to liv e through her and to see what the result of absolute determination and an unwav ering sense of purpose can create. A blushing bride at the tender age of 18, Kiki ' s dreams of going to college seemed impossible. Her husband convinced Kiki to begin work with him after their marriage and that school could always wait. His ideas prevailed and Kiki and her husband worked side-by- side for o er liT years in a series of successful restamant ventures. In those 27 years, Kiki threw herself into working hard at the business while also being a loving wife and an affectionate inolher. She worked so hard for everyone that she almost lost hei own sense of self, her own identity and all of the passions and dreams that she cradled in her heart. However, she began to develop back troubles that slowed her down and led her to examine where she was in her life and where she wanted to be heading. One day, a little angel came to Kiki in the form of a I )iahlo Valle ( ommiuiitv College course catalog. Kiki was drawn to it and started to scour the jiages In 1999 Kiki was granted membership to the Golden Key National Honor Society. This was in recognition of her outstanding jcademic achievernents.

It won ' t ha e nnu h homework and it sliouki be easy, Kiki thought to herself. With a mi.xture of e.xcilement and an.xiety in her heart. Kiki arrived at class on the hrst day, eager to learn. 1 he main instructor asked each member of the class to go up on stage and tell a little bit about themselves. Talk about myself, thought Kiki. Uo I e en remember how to do that after 27 years? With an ease surely di ine in origin. Kiki took the stage and told all about herself with an ail of confidence and strength. Hie stage was a perfect fit and she decided to take more drama classes at her community college. She enjo ed them immenseh anti foiuul her calling in these magical classes of theater arts. One day though, Maula, Kiki ' s daughter, said to her that college was not just about tap dancing, music and drama; it was a place to learn about millions of things and to earn an associate ' s degree. Kiki hesitated at first but then decided to set for herself a goal to follow. Kiki was going to earn her X . With a new resolve, she began to take the necessary classes. Each morning at 2 or 3, she woke up to studv for her courses; according to her, it was easier to concentrate in the silence before the dawn. Apparently, it paid off fantastically when she earned enough credits to graduate with honors! With such a stellar academic record, it seemed natural that she continue her studies and earn for herself a bachelor ' s degree. For her, Haxward State University ' offered a good education without a lar ge commute. A friend of hers mentioned the possibilit ' of earning scholarships; Kiki greeted the notion with a guffaw. I ' m too oki. Kiki said. tlie woultlii ' l give me a scholarship. 1 low wrong she was, indeed. She did not onK win one scholarship; she was awarded three scjiarate ones, amassing more than SI, 001) to go toward her hiture education. Everything was falling into place splendidly as Kiki planned for her future at Hayward State. However, fate struck one da ' when George, Kiki ' s son and U( Berkeley alumnus, found out about his mother ' s collegiate plans. 1 le resolutely said to lu ' r that she was not going to 1 layward State: she was going to attend UC Berkeley. Kiki respoiuied he must be cra because she was not Herkelex little did she know at the time, little did she know.

Ho ve er, a blow was dealt to her when she reached the final math course she needed, a dreaded statistics tlass that tested the limits of her dream of attending Berkeley. It would be a lie to say that she never questioned whether she would make it, but through the guidance of God and His angelic messengers, Kiki found the will to carry on and persevere. Kiki had hurtled what would be the greatest obstacle on her path to a Berkeley education. , fter two years of hard work and true grit, destiny arrived at Kiki ' s doorstep in a DC Berkeley manila envelope. She was accepted and her sweat and toil had bloomed like a summer rose reaching high into the twilight sky. God had answered the tiny prayers of Kiki and her fate was realized in the gilded emblem of the University of California. She arrived the following semester with a sparkle in her eye as she joined the other students that roamed the rolling hills of the campus. Intimidation filled her thoughts; everyone seems so bright, Kiki worried, how will I make it? Promising herself not to audition for any plays her first year and concentrate on her studies, Kiki studied with an intense diligence and finished her first year with a grade point average well above a B+. The next year, Kiki decided that it was time to experience the wonders of theater at Berkeley. She auditioned for her first play. Good: A Tragedy, directed by Christopher Herold. After having auditioned for the play, she forgot to check the next day for the list of callbacks, and as a tragic result, she missed her opportunity- to read for a part. The follov ang day Kiki found out what had happened and she began to cry. What a missed opportunit ' that was! However, an angel came to visit her right then in the form of a departmental advisor named Mary. Mar ' offered Kiki a shoulder to cr ' on and some incisive advice. Go talk with Chris, said Man, ' , he ' ll understand what happened. That was exactly what Kiki did, and shortly thereafter, Kiki found herself with a role in the show. After the success of Good, Kiki appeared in the Shakespearean tragedy Coriolanus ( " 1 have an incredible respect for Shakespeare and actors in those plays now, " said Kiki of the experience) and in lohn lisher ' s Pariisans. I-isher ' s play was a great learning experience for her, and she felt a genuine attachment to each of the four characters that she played. Kiki now stands poised and ready to graduate and finish the journey that has brought her to Berkeley. I look to her for one last question, one last bit of wisdom before she leaves. " What have you learned from all of this? " I ask. She pauses for a moment and then replies that slie has learned that you can ne er give up. Life is a journey wiih ihousands of obstacles, but what is life if not a colleclion ol learning experiences? Sometimes someone starts climbing a mountain and the peak seems ever distant, but she must keep (limbing and look back on all the progress thai she has made. Never (juit.

Takmg Learning to a New l 7 Academics Students recount their experiences switching roles and becoming teachers through the De-cal program. Ve been smitten by Cupid ' s arrow; I ' m in love with Cal. When I first irrived here on campus in the Spring of 1999 (yes, I was a fail reject- T spring admit for the optimists), I was in awe of my peers, the ampus, the faciilt ' , and the city. Wlien 1 learned that students could ievelop and teach classes, my big ears perked, my blue eyes popped, md my jaw dropped. What more can a student ask for? Immediately, ny mind went to work. I love hip-hop culture, specifically rap music. ve spent 14 years of my life listening, learning, and analyzing hip- lop. Despite all of this, I do not M(„ DJ, break, write graf or do hip- jop. Upon hearing of the De-cal program, 1 found a way to translate ill of my time, energ ' . and passion into a meaningful contribution to lip-hop. Furthermore, I hoped that by teaching what I know about lip-hop culture, my passion could spark interest in others. During the next several months, 1 spent my free time developing a yllabus for the course. It was finalized this past January. In the class, e talk about hip-hop from its birth around 1973 to the present, also ncluding contextual information on other musical genres of the ime. Rap is the focus of the class. We touch on breaking and graf vriting, but niosdy analyze developments within the realm of the VIC, and, to some extent, the DJ. We discuss the evolution of KtIcs from part -starting, fun-loving, playful excursions to thoughtful, profound and witt ' reflections. Tracing the changing role of the MC who transformed from a mere sidekick of the DJ to the center of attention, we ponder the different st ies of MC ' ing and production. Throughout all this, we emphasize critical analysis. For many people in the class, hip-hop is a love, and we often have a tendency to extol its virtues and ignore its faults. One point of this class is to learn to analyze and understand hip-hop. By doing so, its virtues shine even brighter, and its faults become even more worrisome. The class is composed of more than just scholarly content, lecture, and analysis. It ' s casual, wdth the exception of two very small papers and one longer paper due throughout the semester. We listen to music. We joke around. We freestyle. Rather, we attempt to freestyle (rhyming previously unwritten material, rhyming off the top of one ' s head). In this endeavor, 1 encounter one of the greatest frustrations of being a teacher. While many students are attentive and participate in the other portions of the class, not all will freestyle. Unfortunately, there is little 1 can do to remedy the situation. 1 understand students are nervous and afraid of embarrassment and I try to make the environment as comfortable as possible. Even so, some people do not have the confidence to just give it a tr ' — and after hearing me rhyme, 1 do not understand how they could possibly think themselves any worse. Lack of student participation also plagues our discussions. Some students feel they have nothing new to contribute. I think they underestimate themselves. Everyone in the class is intelligent and is capable of offering insightful commentary. Furthermore, 1 want to learn more about hip-hop myself. One of the greatest means of doing this is by hearing what others have to say. 1 wish the students would all realize how much I value them and how intensely I desire their input. Teaching a De-cal has been an extraordinary experience. At first, 1 was concerned about the class, mostly because of the unknown. This brave student takes the stage and freestyles for the class. These students prepare for their final presentation. Cowgill leads a class discussion. Her experience teaching the forensic anthropology course inspired Cowgill to study and teach anthropology for a living. A student m the forensic anthropology course listens to the instruction of her teacher, who is also her peer. The de-Cal classes provide students the unique opportunity of learning from other students. With the aid of a skeleton. Cowgill explains the rudiments of forensic anthropology. Forensic anthropologists can help solve crimes when more traditional methods fall short. rantloin factors iliat could appear. More worrisome, however, was the iiiniience I was having on others. I feared tiiat if I tailed in my job, the students would leave with a mistaken or negative view of hip-liop. The thought was quite humbling, and it inspired me to do the l)esi 1 can. I ' m still striving for that, and 1 will continue to improve and revise the course throughout my last two years here at (;ai. I will ne er do a good enough job. no matter how positive my students ' feedback is. .And just as the thought of in ' intluence both worries and inspires me, it also generates my greatest satisfaction. 1 loM " to see a listener bobbing his or her head, rapjiing the lyrics, dancing with the beat, or just retreating into i|uiet reflection — 1 have the privilege of watching this unfold. This is most wonderhil reward I could hope for. ■ Kcrin Del.isiin When I tell people I taught a class in forensic anthropology, those who know what the fieltl entails make no effort to tlisguise their disgust. Others, unfamiliar with biological anthropologx. often appear bewildered and ask exactly what a forensic anthropologist does, lor this latter category of people, I ha c an anecdote already prepared. If, I explain, the police find a body that has rotted to the point that it has little or no flesh remaining, they send it to a lorensic anthropologist. I he forensic anthropologist examines the bones and attempts to determine the age, sex, statine, and ancestry of the unidentified individual and perhaps disi dmt i lues that reveal the cause of the individual ' s uniir cK drmise Alter 1 explain what my class covered, I brace m sell Im dnli ine itable expressions of revulsion. 1 heir next question is also fairh ' predic table What sort of person wants to take, let alone leach, a class in something like forensic anthropology ' This incpiiry is a little more dilfic ull to tackle. Usually, 1 just suggest that the ' drop b nwinelle on Monday afternoon and see for themselves. I asked my co-teacher, Heidi Owen, a similar question over a year ago when we were taking the first steps to organize the class. I will never forget the first day of our class. As I walked nervously to Dwinelle, lecture in hand, I wondered if anyone would actually show up for this class that Heidi and I had so painstakingly organized. The surprise of entering the class on that first tlay and seeing seventy people of diverse ages, backgroimds, and majors c lammed into a room that seats forty will never leave me. Heidi and I taught our De-cal for two semesters iti a row, and it was without a doubt one of the highlights of my education at (ial. Despite all the work that teaching a class entails, I will never regret taking advantage of such a rare opportunity. As an undergraduate, most students spend four years packed into overcrowded lecture halls listening to some icmole profi ' ssor ilione on ad nauseuin. When I saw m chance to be on the oiliei side of the podium lor two bonis every week, 1 seized it. and It i hanged m |)erspecti e on edu( aliiin forever, leaching the De-cal instilled in me a new respect loi those distant professors and their ongoing struggles to both educate and entertain. It illuminateil man of the organizational details inxohed in running a class that most siutlents are never exposed to (•l, ilie most amazing part of the De-cal program is that aru ' one llh a lilllc ilrlve and .i bright idea can do it. Although leaching a class is diltii ult work, the rewaids ,nc |)lenlilul Miu h ol wh.ii I le.nned were detail oriented lessons, problems ih.ii never oicuiied to me when I leuli and I first began planning the c lass, lor example, a two hour lecluii ' I. ikes six to eight linuis to organize no matter how well you know the so pulling it oil till the last minute is detrimental to our eath. Secondly, it it ' s a two hour lecture when you lehearsc it, it wil nly take up an hour of real class time. The small organizational iftlculties that arise when leaching a class aie limitless anil npreilictahle. hut soK ing these issues is [larl ol the learning xperience iinoKed in leaching a De-cal. Other than the massi f change in perspective inilialeil h eaching the class, I came out of my first teaching experience with wo major revelations. First of all, I learned more about forensic nthropology from teaching it than I ever could have from sitting )assi ely in a classroom. Although I had a good knowledge base in he field when I began the class, I realized that my knowledge had erious gaps and substantial research was required if I intended to Academics (oheriMilly leclure on the material. So in addition to learning a lot about the logistics ot running a class, I learned an amazing amount about the field of forensic anthropology itself. Secondly, although I had previously considered becoming a professor myself, I was not entirely committed to the idea. My experience with teaching this class helped solidify my ambitions. By the time May rolled around and the final exams had been graded, I knew for certain thai not only did I want to spend the rest of my life practicing anthropology, but I wanted to teach it as well. I can honestly say that teaching the De-cal altered the course of my life, which is a pretty strong approbation for any class, let alone one that started with two friends, a bright idea, and a little drive. ■ Libby Cowgill Owen and Cowgill take the podium in their forensic anthropology de-Cal class.

The strike, an effort to protest the university ' s alleged labor violations and to prove the unity and impact of the graduate students, took place during negotiations in Sacramento between the Graduate Student Union and university officials. right: A graduate student strikes with his child. Many graduate students have spouses and families to support in addition to teaching and taking classes— responsibilities which, graduate students said, made satisfactory agreements with the universtity all the more necessary. now hope that we can move past the pie ioiis obstacles and make progress toward a contract. We also continue to hope that we can huild a productive working relationship with the UAW. " A prodtictive working relationship between the two parties is still uncertain with both parties shifting the blame and refusing to compromise. The university claims tf) have made offers that take into account some of the key issues of the union, while the union claims that the university has failed to do so. The union accuses the university of stalling negotiations while the university accuses the union of doing so. VVliile an agreement has been reached this time, relations remain tense, and the possibility of a permanent strike remains, u Diana (Jiai Distrust of the Graduate Stu(l(Mit In ion While the Graduate Student Union appears to be fighting for the riglits of all the graduate students, some groups of graduate students feel that they will be hurt instead of helped by the student union. Graduate student Frank Wilderson, a local representative on the union ' s bargaining team, told the Daily Californian that " union leaders have withheld information from the general membership, abandoned the democratic process and forfeited issues of importance to minorities in their fight for a contract. " I le and other members said that the imion has given up the right to an outside arbitrator on discrimination complaints, which they feel is necessan. ' . Wilderson added that the union ' s priorities reflect " lim Crowism. " Wliile this comparison may be a bit extreme, Wilderson ' s complaints reveal conflict inside the union. Discrimination issues aren ' t the only sources of discomfort. The graduate students in the science departments have traditionally been better funded. To avoid exploitation of GSIs, the UAW wants to require that at least 50% of a GSrs appointment must come from university money. For less well funded departments, this means that their students will actually get paid for a higher percentage of their teaching time. However, for graduate students in science fields such as Molecular and Cell Biolog ' , this becoines a problem. Their NIH training grant guarantees them a stipend every month for 12 months out of the year. Wlien they are teaching, the GSIs must be paid an equivalent amount from the university. However, the following semester, when they aren ' t teaching, the money is deducted Irom their paycheck. For those teaching in the spring, this means that they won ' t receive a paycheck in the fall, making the holiday season tough on the pocketbooks. The graduate students in MCB feel that this is a side effect of union benefits designed to help departments less well off than MCB. Since this discovery, they have also come to realize that they don ' t have union representation. They now need to negotiate with the union to sec iftliey cem opt oiu ol policies that hurt tiicm. The ouiconu ' ol tliese conflicts is still unclear. VV at is clear is that the Graduate Student Union, while beneficial to some, is now entirely representative of the entire graduate student body. The graduate students are so diverse in situation and needs, that it will be difficult for one policy to benefit all. mOiaiia Cliai 7 5 Tidal Wave tj Surges Closer to Shore Berkeley is a distinctly original place when school is in session.

There are lots of kids out theie, and in the next ten years those kids are going to grow up and want an education. So now it ' s up to IJC to act ommodate as main ' of them as |)()ssible. They ' ri ' calling thi ' coming enrollment crunch " Tidal Wave 2. " This wave is composed ol the thousands ol students ex|)e( ted to he ready for college in thi ' ni ' xt ten vears.

(hat the [irojected number of new students is approximately equivalent to adding a fifth class of undergraduates to the mix. Issues facing the university along with the prospect of this potential crisis go beyond sheer numbers. In recent years, with the passage of Proposition 209 in 1996, the numbers of minority students have been called into question. Prop. 209 officially ended affirmative action, and many credit it with the decrease in enrollment numbers of certain ethnic groups. It is clear that 209 has had impact on who is admitted and who is not. The 1999 freshman class had higher numbers of both white and Asian American students than the percentage present in the total undergraduate student body (comprised of new freshmen through seniors) not surprising since these two groups generally have the highest admittance rates. A smaller percentage of African American, Native American and Latino students enrolled as freshmen in 1999 than in the overall student population. Though it is possible that this could have been caused by declining interest in UC among these groups, this possibility seems unlikely. In the Berkeleyaii, the newspaper serving faculty and staff of the university, an article by leff Holeman cites a 2.5 percent increase in applications overall for 1-all 2000 with percentage increases by group from +.8% for white students to +20% for Chicano Latino students. Clearly the interest is there. It remains to be determined whether the actual enrollment numbers will contintie to tlrop, even coupled with the growing interest. This year was one of transition in regards to student numbers. No concrete plans have been laid, no definite decisions have been reached. It was a year of planning and waiting, and there are ()b i()usl ' some major pioblems to be worked out. Will reduced t lass time make a Berkeley degree less valuable? Will an administration rushing siudenis through the college experience (ianipcii its value? Will Berkeley be able to maintain a diverse student body even after Prop. 209 and through the complication of the enrollment surge? .At this point, there remain only questions.

His demeanor while administering tests represents the enduring model of the caring teacher. On these occasions, one can well imagine the competiti e atmospluTe cUkI the stresses, real and oiherwise, encountered in this course wiiicli was ret|Liired for medical school admission. I le would temper our intense worry and apprehension about doing well with comments that he was confident that we had all studied sufficiently and that the examinations were just opportunities tor us to show that he was successful as a teacher. 1 can say ihal he was the best teacher that 1 had during my years at l)(; Berkele ' . 1 lis leclures in embr ' ology stand out in ui iniud as e i ' m|)lar in their i lai ily and conciseness.

V ' ty- U ' t W: OlTIMArf ih When immioTants and o prospectors filled California, UC Berkeley ' s lapanese, Chinese and Filipino clubs became the first culturally- based organizations associated with a California public institution. In the era offense race relations, these clubs were ground-breaking and even potentially dangerous. Current student groups still channel contemporary, and controversial, ideas through student voices. Students band together to celebrate interests that range from Christianity to snowboarding to publishing. Although the educational environment of today is a far cry from that of the nineteenth century, Berkeley students have never been afraid to advance their beliefs and their interests together. Powered by 1 v J0 Solar powered cars are hardly practical — in return for the inimeiise price tag of a single car, you get an incredibly fragile contraption that demands careful maititcnance and has no warranty. Wliat then motivates the members of CidSol to invest large amounts of valuable time during the academic year to this unlikely cause? I ' he answer to this question lies in a simple vision — picture a bright summer afternoon, a long straight stretch of road, and a sleek car skimming the asphalt at seventy miles-per-hour. Know that this car is running off the sun, and you begin to peer into the depths of a solar junkie ' s mind and the root of his intense fascination. CalSol provides students at UC Berkeley with a unique experience combining design engineering and project management. Through the development of solar vehicles for competition, the team strives to educate the public and increase awareness of alternative energy as a viable goal for the future. In pursuing these ideals, CalSol imparts to its members an education that compliments classroom learning with practical knowledge and experience. However, the most rewarding thing about being a part of CalSol is the vivid memory of countless nights spent toiling away i on the car and watching the months of sweat, tears and yes, even a little blood, culminate in the first rolling test, having the car move along imder its own power. Without a doubt, this is what makes Information about the UC Berkeley ' s Solar Vehicle team can be found at: http: calsol 8 4 Members of CalSol demonstrate how to get into the dnver ' s seat. Organizations Ik h an incredible undertaking worth the effort, the ability to ;raduate knowing that amidst the hectic academics offered at one if the nation ' s top universities, you built and raced a solar powered ar rhis past summer, CalSol participated in Sunrayce 99, a week oii , 1,400-mile trek from Washington D.C. to Disney World in )riando, Florida. Forming Team Stanley with an unlikely partner, he Stanford Solar Car Project, undergraduates from both Berkeley ind Stanford spent one month on the road, battling intense heat, lumidity, exhaustion, and for the week of the race, nonstop rain and hunder. Not surprisingly, the lack of adequate sunshine made for a ace that was not as successful as hoped. Nevertheless, as the team ipproached Orlando without a single mechanical or electrical oreakdovvn, the mood was quite unanimous. For those who adhered o the project through times of doubt and witnessed the successful :ompletion of the race, the finish line embodied the culmination of :wo years of planning and labor, a single instant that will forever be relived in slow motion. With the start of the fall semester, the building process has once again been initiated, continuing the cycle started when CalSol was first founded in 1990. Designs are currently underway and construction has already begun on what will be the econd car built solely by UC Berkeley students. With the prospect of racing in 2001, a proposed course from Chicago to Los Angeles, CalSol is once again providing its members with the unique experience of building and racing a solar car. Those who will see the car pass the finish line in Los Angeles will then have the opportunity to experience the same sense of excited satisfaction that ended Sunrayce 99, the shining instant when the checkered flag drops before the sleek solar car that you had helped to build. ■ Lawrence Ong, Mechanical Team Leader I Quick facts about...

It was late morning and ominous silver storm clouds hunched over the Oakland Coliseum. Similarly attired Raiders fans streamed off BART, headed for the overpass leading to the stadium.

Other groups in this organization are the Men ' s and Women ' s Chorales, BareStage, the UC Madrigal Singers, and the UC Ahmuii Chorus. UCCE is completely student-run and extracurricular.

There was an air of nervous excitement pervading the BAH I train thai look most of us to and tioin ihc statiium, en routi ' to singing the national aiulu ' in hctorc the Raiders vs. C;hargers game. Despite the fact that we happened to be wearing the colors of the opposing team (Blue aiul Cold, coineniciuly enough, liies up Chargers fans as wi ' ll as li) ,il ( idUicii Bears), we had a laiiK ' warm ri ' ception.

We ven took pictures with some if the more outlandishly Iressed Raiders fans. One nan, wearing black and silver ace paint, a Trojan-style lelmet, and a jersey that read elad-a-Raide " was especially :ordial about being the ubject of our photos. Though he fans who spoke to us vere, for the most part, riendly, a few people •esented our seeming lack of .Haider pride. " You ' re not wearing black and silver, so uck it! " one heated Raider fan shouted as we walked by. Nonetheless, we reached Dur seats and settled for a moment before going to the food stands. On our way, we got to bear witness to the human spectacle that paraded around us. Everyone seemed to have a creative Raiders T- shirt. Samples included " Real Men Wear Black, " and " My 2 favorite teams are the Raiders and whoever is playing the 49ers. " When we reentered the field to get ready to sing, the anticipation in the air was almost solid. I have never really cared much about professional football, but at that moment I became completely swept up and would have supported the Raiders against anyone. It ' s Organizations Struck by the enthusiasm of select crowd members, members of the UC Women ' s Chorale pose with a decorated Raiders fan. Following their performance, the members of the UCWC relaxed in their complimentary seats to watch the Raiders play to victory. hard to find reasons to oppose such strong loyalty. Besides, the oft- times underdog Raiders bear some striking similarities to Cal, so it ' s easy to relate to their fans. Singing at a professional football game was a unique experience. Fans cheered for us when we took the field, and the low roar that ensued was something that the Choral Performance Hall in Cesar Chavez could never match in a million years. Our voices echoed surreally from the loudspeakers so that we seemed to be singing in slow motion. Cameramen scurried around us hunched over in order to tape from all angles. The excitement growing in the crowd seemed to spur us on to sing the best we could. After we finished, a fighter jet graced the stadium with a fly-by, and the climactic appeal of the moment sent vibrations of spirit careening across the rows of fans. For a brief moment as we sang, the sun came out, and we took it as a sign. There was no doubt that the early morning and the crowded BART trip had been well worth it. We were UCCE, we were Cal, and we were latent Raiders fans. What more can you ask for in a moment like that? ■ Elizabeth McMunn 8 7 rr P , i «29l QiT, On April 30, 2000, the UC Men ' s Octet won first place at the National Championship of Collegiate A Cappella Finals held at Avery Fischer Hall in New York. top row: Ryan Antonelli (baritone), David Martinez {tenor 1 ), Gary Baldwin (alumnus), Joe Willits (alumnus).

" What is the world of a Cappella coining to? Where did all the tradition go? Must eight college boys imitate tlie choreography of a pop female singer to get attention? Although the style of entertainment may have changed over the years, the tradition of singing v itii an a cappella group has definitely not, and neither has the appeal to the audience, proven clearly by the crowds that gathered at Wheeler auditorium for the National Championship of Collegiate A Cappella concert. From family to suppcjrtivc friends, the anxious singers knew this was the night to show all they d got. Cal spirit filled the room with excitement and anticipation, for not only was this the time to show off the amazing talents of Cal students, it was a time for school pride against tlie rival Stanford groups. The usually quiet, dense lecture hall was filled with life and spirit. Cal ' s favorite, and not to mention the judges ' favorite, the UC Men ' s Octet made its way to the stage, and the room went up in an uproar Competitors from Stanford, ranging from tlie Spanish singers of the all- female Counterfioint to the traditional men ' s Mendicants to the 1 larmonics in leather pants, definitely felt the disadvantage of the home ground. The Men ' s Octet was represented by only seven that night. Ihe competition closed with the performance of Stanford ' s Mendicants. As the judges totaled the points, the Berkeley Jazz Ensemble (who later advanced to the semifinals themselves after taking first place at another regional competition) brought in a different taste of nuisic to change the mood. Their jazz version of the fight song built tlie anticipation of the final scores, and the crowds supported them through the hissing of the Stanfordites. Finally, the results reached the stage and the UC Men ' s Octet cheered for their " Best Arrangement " award and the Golden Overtones congratulated tlieir winning soloist. Only the top two teams would proceed to the semi-finals NCCA competition at Stanforti. Although excited, the audience cotildiit hel|i but feel let down when the I iaiinonic s s(|uee ,ecl liie Overtones nut ol second place. However, the Mens Octet ' s first place, sending them to the championships to defend their national title, had the crowd on its Traditional Note feet. When the announcer was finally able to calm tlie Cal spirit, the octet took the stage once again with a Spanish selection and a little salsa dancing to top off the night. How has the A Cappella world changed over these years? We ' ve always seen the stereotypical groups from the prestigious ivy league schools in old movies, but as time changed, so did they. Choral groups are no longer confined within the walls of " proper " repertoire. As exemplified by the concert, many groups are keeping up with modern culture and bringing the pop music of the past few decades to compedtions and concerts alike. From oldies to pop, choral groups have changed their selec tions, as much for their audience as for themselves. The audience always seems to enjoy deviation from the traditional classics, and to see their peers introduce their own vehicles of pop stardom in this era of MWis always entertaining. In addition, as with any performing role, singers better perform songs to which they can relate. However, the degree of difficulty of pop music must not be underestimali ' d. Any song may be arranged to challenge a taleiiied group of students. From the hloiid- haired boys to wiki, pink haired girls, meniheis ol a cappella groups are an array of all ethnicities, ages, and majors. Most have some instruineiiial backgroiiiul, some lia e simgall iheii livi ' s, while During a weekly performance on Sproul, Kathryn MacDonald and other California Golden Overtones delight the crowd With their melodies. rynn Hatton, a member of the Califor nia Golden Overtones, steps forward and takes enter stage during one of the group ' s weekly outdoor shows. )thers merely joined their high school choirs. Regardless, the )erformers have the voice, dedication, and desire to sing well and sing lompetitively. The experience of working with peers who possess that ame flair for expression to an audience is one that many A Cappella lingers claim to be one of the most rewarding in their lives. As one nember of AIR puts it, " It ' s the best feeling I know. " A Cappella audiences have become more demanding over the ears, requiring more to gain their praises, and the performers have •tepped up to the challenge, especially through innovadve horeography and wardrobes. Although the sports coats and ies are still around, performance attires can range anywhere rom leather pants to shimmery tank-tops to ring-pops. Jingers are willing to do whatever it takes to get the laughs, ipplause, and standing ovations. However, one thing has not changed, and that ' s the pirit of the audience. Friends and family will always ■upport their singers, music lovers wdll never tire of a larmonic chord, and students will always spare a moment or their feUow peers to appreciate the amazing talents imong them.

This was my mind-set in high school, making me timid and hesitant to get involved with anything. Putting my whole being and sacrificing my time into something was a risk I was not willing to take. As a result, I stayed away from all student groups and focused my extra time on sports, hobbies, and hanging out with friends. No doubt many treasured memories were created dwindling time away in high school, but entering into college I decided 1 wanted to do something different. You know, get that " college experience " . It ' s kind of sad howl became a member of the Asian American Association (AAA for short, not to be confused for the automobile insurance company). I wdsh I had some touching, life changing story like I did not live in the dorms, was lonely, and needed to meet people (which actually was, in a way, my situation), but 1 became a member because with the Asian Business Association membership (I am an intended business administration major), AAA membership came free. Being a cheapy Chinese and all, I took advantage of that offer; little did I know that a chapter of my life in AAA was about to open, and a whole new world of opportunities, friends, and accomplishments were going to enter into my life and change it forever. I ' m not sure if this would be true for any club 1 vvouki have joined, but 1 would think so. I think anyone that had put in hard effort, dedication, time, joy, even love to see ilicii club succeed, do well, and make a difference can relate to the overwhelming feeling and strange sadness when their duty as a cabinet member is done. There is a breath of relief, a sense of accomplishment, thinking about what you are going to do with all that extra time you now have. There is a kind of release knowing you are free from the responsibilities, yet still feeling attached to the club, antici|Kiting how the next semester is going to be and thinking about w liai you can do to make sure it will be just as successful. Reflecting on my three semesters at Gal, the last one being a cabinet membei . a substantial amount of my memories: happy, frustrating, touching, trying... I can go on and on, were created by my involvement in AAA. AAA ' s mission statement " to be at the forefront ut uniting the Asian American community at Berkeley. AAA seeks to develop proactive and community-oriented leaders through social, educational awareness and service network. It enhances the quality of life at Berkeley through its focus on diversity appreciation, " sounds pretty complicated. 1 had a hard time memorizing it myself. It means nothing unless you get involved and see what AAA is actually doing to fulfill it. It is very ambitious and AAA is still far from having it become reality, but it is slowly getting there. Besides, what is the point of setting an easily achievable goal for a club: so it can be complacent and stagnant? AAA is continuously trying to improve to become better with an excellent Public Relations committee, a newly formed Development committee, and a socially active Community Service and Issues committee; which is impressive for a club that is only 3 years old and that grew from a membership of 30 to close to . ' iOO. I really feel that AAA can make a difference in Berkeley. It made a difference in my life. Being on the Issues committee for botii my freshman semesters, it exposed uc to tilings I never knew existed and it eiialleiigecl me to think in clitteieni ways. I learned so much, lioni affirmative action to Asian American sexuality, and being in Issues widened my view about the world. One event that made me think twice about what I wanted to be in the future was when we had Asian Americans working in fields other than science, business, and math. We interviewed two people that worked in the Juvenile 1 lall in SI- counseling Asian Americans. 1 really admired their courage for going out there and trying to reach out to high-risk youth. I eonsiiier that as soinelhiiig I wouki do in the Intiire. I eaniiiil hej in to express how iinu ii liein on eaiiinel tiiis semester as Social Liaison has helped me grow. I leallv le.u necl to Organizations The Asian-American Association ' s second semi-annual forum on Asian- American Sexuality was put together by the Issues Committee. Leslie Yang, AAA Issues Chair, said " What we wanted to do was get people to discuss a lot of pertinent issues regarding sex and one ' s sexuality to get them [to] learn about the rest of their peers as well as themselves because active discussion really promotes thought... Our hope is that this active thinking will serve to inspire Asian American students to make themselves more aware of the issue that concern us all. " The attendants were offered three different workshops: attitudes views on sex, relationships, and gender roles. ippreciate how much planning and effort goes into each event. AAA las accomplished a lot, from having the best social events AAA has ■ rr seen and having a successful mentorship, to raising many housands of dollars for the Taiwan earthquake relief foundation. All his could not have been done without the help and cooperation of Jie cabinet and more importantly, the members. At the end of this year, I am stepping away from my leadership josition, taking away with me all the memories of hardship, pain, :ears as well as laughter, hugs, and accomplishment. I know that vhen I look back and remember, I will get teary-eyed. But AAA and I ire not completely detached; I know that for the rest of my years at Berkeley I will stay involved, and even beyond my college years jomething of AAA will linger on because most of my closest friends n college I met through this club, and I know that we will be seeping in touch for a long time. Now I would like to revise my philosophy. Life is what you make of it, you don ' t really have to choose carefully, just as long as you do something, have fun with it, and feel good about yourself knowing that you made a difference and your time was not wasted. ■ Cynthia Hu At the Asian-American Sexuality Forum, the students spoke openly about stereotypes promoted by the media, gender dominance, and social opinions of interacial dating. I ASIAN BUSINESS ASSOCIATION t Have you ever felt that you are alone and out on a limb by yourselfi? Asian Business Association is here to liclp you. Ai5A is not limited to Asians, though many of its members are of Asian descent. It is a club that promotes Asian culture, but also encourages Cal students help one another in the admissions process of the prestigious Haas Business School at Berkeley. The club is also not limited to intended business majors. I lowever, being in this club helps familiarize students with the application process and the field of business. ABA holds events such as application workshops, mock interviews, and resume workshops; activities targeted toward more business oriented students. Ihey also host company speakers and job fairs that help undecided students search for their own personal career interests. Also active in rotnmuiiity service, ABA held the Fall Expose Fashion Show, which served as not only a night of fun, but also a source for proceeds that went to the Red Cross. Then, of course, there are social activities that help students relax and get away from all of the stressful decisions. Most of all, ABA helps students build a close network of friends that remain encouraging and supportive throughout these years of crucial decision and action. ■ Chrysann Hunt One last practice to perfect the act before going on stage.

" Oakland Asian Student Educational Services (OASES) provides its 200+ volunteers a chance to reacii out into ihe community, offering different programs which serve their Oakland students from K- 1 2th grade. Programs include General Tutorial, Kids Into Computers (KICs), the Asian Youth I ' romol lug Advocacy and Leadership (AYPAL) program, Friday Activities, Friday ESL, and the Inspire Youth Mentorship Program. " I love OASES because the kids always remind nic that life can be simple, if you look at it in the right way. Their smiles and hugs are a perfect start to the week, " feels tutorial day coordinator Minal Tapadia, 4th year MCB major. " In conjunction with 20 other Berkeley student coordinators, I work to supervise weekly tutorial sessions involving 40-50 Berkeley mentors and over 100 students. Ironically, although I am supposed to mentor the kids, it is often the kids who end up teachmg me lessons about myself, and about life as well. " OASES strives to bring to its volunteers an awareness of the issues facing students in the Oakland schools and in the greater Oakland community.

They also use the OASES Center computers to visit :olleges online. " I was fortunate enough to have a mentor through ligh school. She made me believe that it was possible to strive for the impossible. I wanted to give back what I received, " Coordinator 3rd year Ann Nguyen feels. " The best parts of being in Inspire are having the chance to give the mentees opportunities they would not otherwise have and opening their eyes to new experiences. " Shadow Day gives mentees the opportunity to attend classes with their mentor, visit the campus, and find out more about college life. Mentors have different reasons for volunteering but all find the experience to be very rewarding. " I have a younger sister in the same situation as these high school students, " says 2nd semester Head Mentor Angela Monges, a 4th year in Anthropology.

Council members elected by its members run the organization, and they organize the various events that occur clurinj; the year. 1 he events Indus holds provide a nice social atmosphere and a comfortable way for members to learn about South Asian culture. Indus ' goal is to provide a forum for students to become more educated about South Asia and South Asian issues. Senior Nitin Gupta feels Indus helped him to learn more about South Asia. " It ' s taught me a lot about culture; something I would have never been able to learn elsewhere. It ' s a great way to meet people and learn more about the culture of South Asia. " Sundip Karsan, fifth year Senior, has learned much from Indus as well. " Indus has given me the opportunity to showcase my Raas and Garba talents, " Sundip explains. " Being part of the club is one of the best things that I ' ve ever done. I ' m grateful to learn a great deal about my culture through this amazing club. My only hope is that future students will take advantage of the realm of cultural opportimities that this club provides. " South Asian Awareness Week, which took place Oct. 27-31. was a week-long celebration that exposed the whole campus to South Asian culture. Sproul Plaza was decorated with booths that represented the different regions and countries of South Asia, while various musical, poetic, classical, and film dance performances were center stage in front of Sproul Hall for all to see. The week ended with the traditional Raas Garba in Hayward, a Gujrati celebration that celebrates Lord Krishna. In the spring, Indus kicked off its second annual South Asian Conference called IMPACT on March 4th. Students and various community organizations held workshops in the Valley Life Sciences building on different topics pertaining to South Asia, including Mainstream South Asians on Campus, Interracial Dating, South Asian vs. American Parents, and Sikhism as a Philosophy and a Faith, iliis intercollegiate conference was open to everyone who wanted to icam more ahoiU South Asian Culuire in a nianiit ' i thai was not intimidating or out of touch.

Indus Vice President and econd ear student Rina Shah explains how much work goes into roducing such an elegant program. " With hundreds of articipants and thousands of attendants, the organization (of the low) is no small feat. Indus Council members and Class epresentatives work diligently and cohesively for months to make le grand night happen. " Such a feat is not easily performed.

They know lat sacrifices have to be made to put on a great performance. Being involved in Indus and the Culture Show is great, " Purnima xplains. " Indus brings together people of many different ackgrounds to celebrate South Asian Culture and heritage. " Countless hours of practice time for 13 acts took place in the Inits, Underground parking garage, Sproul, MLK, Jr. Building, and le RSF garage. A dress rehearsal before Spring Break, put on with ne help of the Center of South Asian Studies, made sure performers .ere on track. Indus members and Council slept an average of 2 ours a night the week of the show. Finally, the night before the how a run through for technical purposes was done to prepare for ae big night.

Berkeley Students for a Sovereign Taiwan (BST), a grassroots student organization on campus, has been working since 1997 to build a cohesive community of people who are concerned with Taiwanese sovereignty and nation-lormation and to educate the Berkeley community about issues of human rights and democracy in East Asia. BST also holds regular discussions and lecture forums on Taiwan -related issues to educate and inform the Berkeley campus and city community ' . Founded by sisters Rosie and Lily Hsueh, BST has since gone on to co-author a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein to protest her support for the One-China Policy, lobby the ASIJC Senate to pass " Bill 20 in Support of a Democratic and Independent Taiwan, " and obtain thousands of petition signatures urging Congress to pass resolutions supporting self-determination for Taiwan. Due to persistent efforts of BST, on October 28, 1997, the Berkeley City Council passed a resolution in support of a Democratic and Independent Taiwan and wrote a letter of concern to elected U.S. federal officials, urging them to support a democratic and independent Taiwan. Other ongoing projects of BST include tinuation of the acadegiic survey of UC-Berkeley for research by prc ssors and graduate »udents on Taiwap Taiwanese-American related issues, creating a database i if all relevant information, and a letter campaign to President (Clinton imploring him to create a Taiwan policy that addresses issues of self-determination and democracy for the Taiwanese people. Although remeniBering and understanding the past is important, BST also looks forward to tlie promising future. The recent election of Mayor Chen Shu-ljian and Annette Lu of the Democratic Progressive Parly (DPP) is a turning point inTaiwan ' s history. Dennis Wu, 4th year Mechanical Engineering, felt " one of the most inspiring events was meeting Taiwanese Vice President Elect Annette Lu when she came to speak in Santa Clara. It ' s an awesome feeling seeing and hearing people who are on the verge of greatness! " Many in BST caught election fever. BST anxiously awaited the results of the closely contested race.

Approximately 200 entering students are awarded Regents ' and Chancellor ' s Scholarships each year. One of the most difficult aspects regarding this scholarship is persuading the prospective scholars to accept the scholarship and attend Cal; after all, if the money does not, a da ' with the recruitment staff will. When high school seniors interview for the Regents ' and Chancellor ' s Scholarship, they spend the day at UC Berkeley to tour the campus, have an international luncheon, attend the Undergraduate Scholarships, Prizes, and Honors Office ' s planned events, and meet UC Berkeley ' s renov Tied faculty. If they choose, they can stay overnight with current scholars members at the dorms to get the " inside scoop " on Cal. This year, the Overnight Host Program plans to do about ten o ernights, culminating with our big Cal Day overnight. This program is RCSA ' s best chance to recruit incoming freshmen. Prospective students are treated to dinner at Zachary ' s pizza and given the opportunity to meet their hosts and other students in their situation. The 0 ernight Host Program is designed to give prospective Regents ' and Chancellor ' s scholars the opportunity to gain insight into freshman life at Cal. After dinner, the fun begins A night tour of the Berkeley campus is given, filled with useless Cal trivia, a trust walk, and the best part . . . enticing these students to roll down the wet, grassy hills of Faculty ' Glade with the promise of straight As for their first semester. In fact, most of these students think that the overnight stay is part of the competition for the scholarship and are quite easily duped into doing goof ' things. Stories and anecdotes about the wonders of Berkeley spurt from every host ' s mouth; of course, several are fabricated as a little joke to test gullibility. After a long night ' s stroll, the gang meets up at the International House to enjoy coffee and pastries. It is a wonderful time to mingle and relieve any hesitations the potential scholars may have wdth an informal i|ueslion and answer session. Of course, all nights must end and the next morning is perhaps one of the most nervewracking for these prodigies: their faculty interviews. Our goal is to prn ide a forum where these highly sought-after students enjoy a little tempting taste of Berkeley, have their pressing questions answered, and most importantly make Cal as welcoming as possible. ■ Alexander Ding 1 1 Making Georcina Lopez-Mullins Why did you choose to come to Cal? Berkeley IS known throughout the world for its academic excellence and its diversity. Few universities can make the same claim. Even though both UCLA and USC offered me very attractive scholarships and financial aid awards, they did not inspire the feeling of bohemia and freedom of expression that Berkeley did. I longed for an atmosphere that was charged with courage, youth, and freedom. I found what I was searching for at Berkeley. What do you most enjoy about being a Cal student? I have met students from twenty countries, it is fascinating to discover the similarities we share and the potential to contnbute something of value to the world. Three tips for prospective students: " As a business student, I strongly encourage potential Haas students to build a strong resume. Seek out applicable work expenence that will enhance your chances of being accepted. ■Read financial magazines and periodicals. Immerse yourself in the business jargon so that you can understand and interact comfortably with faculty and fellow students. ' Hone your writing and verbal skills. The business school will assume that you are proficient in these areas. JdTiel Jones Summer Project Description: In a nutshell... WebBound is a program that I designed which will provide inner- city high school students computer access and education within a pre-existing, academically- oriented program. Through the WebBound Program, participating students will take computer courses providing them with both a theoretical and practical introduction to navigating the Internet, using e-mail, writing HTML code, and designing web pages.

Since it was over summer {and probably less stressful) the professor was also very approachable and accessible.

I was also able to assess the workload faculty expected of me, which helped me in designing my Fall semester schedule. I welcomed Overall. I welcomed introduction to the campus, faculty, and staff — it certainly helped to make my transfer to UCB smooth, less stressful, and successful. When the Fall semester finally began, I found that I was at a real advantage compared to other transfer students. •MEET WITH YOUR PROFS AND GSIs EARLY: As soon as you get to UCB, you find that they are already pushing you into your next step ... whether that be graduate professional school or work. In any case, you need to start talking about your plans and gathering your information making that transition easier. Also, it ' s always nice to have a selection of recommendation letters to choose from. Do not expect to entirely rely on your junior college profs (although they are a valuable resource). What myth about Berkeley have you dispelled? There are soooooooo manyi But. to be brief. I think the most important myth to dispel for incoming transfer students IS the myth about UCB ' s overwhelming size and depersonalized bureaucracy. Before I came to UCB I heard that teachers could care less about who you were and that very young " know-it-all " graduate students actually taught the classes while professors sat locked in their offices engrossed in research. My experience has been quite the opposite (with a few exceptions)! Yes. Be " 2erk " ley is a very large school with many thousands of students. And yes. it has a huge bureaucracy system. But at UCB I have been able to find the same sense of community that I found when I was in junior college. I still have lunch and dinner with professors and graduate student instructors. They all take an interest in what you ' re doing. Yes, many of them are doing their own research, but that means only MORE opportunity for you, as a student ' At UCB you can be involved in the research or even design your own. As far as the " overwhelming " size, my classes are roughly about 50 or so students. Within my own department (especially because it is one of the smaller majors) I already know many of the faculty, students, advisors, staff, etc. on a personal basis and it ' s only my first yeari You can ' t beat it ' As the top public school in the nation (and possibly the world), you couldn ' t pay for anything better. Julie Zang Why did you choose to transfer to Gal? I wanted to seek d higher educ ation at Berkeley to consolidate my learning and enrich my experience. Berkeley is a dynamic place full of diversity, activities, and intellectual interactions. What do you enjoy most about being a Gal student? Berkeley is so energetic that constantly happening events keep me busy and informed. I have been enlightened by professors ' informative lectures. I have debated with my study group members over the discrepancies we ' ve had on problem solving. I have endured late night studies and enjoyed the ecstasy of working through the labyrinth. It is not only a place of academic excellence, but also where I can be part of the community. Being a member of the Adult Literacy Program and joining the First Presbyterian Church suitcase clinic service for homeless people are what I have always wanted to do. At the moment I cheered " Go Bears! Go " with other Cal Students and alumni for our football team. I felt harmonizing into the atmosphere. I am completely involved in the school. It is the place where I have my college life, worthwhile and unforgettable. 3 Tips for Prospective Transfer Students: Complete all lower division classes and IGETC requirements at the junior college Take less than the normal course load for the first semester at Cal Do not take 3 major classes in one semester at Cal if you can arrange your schedule to avoid it Merjo Roca Three things you wish you had done differently or wish you had known before you transferred to UCB? Prerequisites to the English major should be done while still in the community college system in order to give you more time to enjoy your upper division classes here at Berkeley. Remember that although lower division classes can be fun, they are different from upper division classes and adjusting to the two different kinds of classes can be a pain. Secondly, you are supposed to be a junior and you need to start thinking about graduating and the classes you need to graduate, not the classes you should have taken while a freshman and a sophomore. Check with the English department for current prerequisites. Collect possible recommendation letters as soon as possible. You may need them for such things as scholarships. Remember that the more scholarships you have, the more financial freedom you will also have and that means you can enjoy Berkeley even more. ' Remember that summer classes are open to all students. Look it up and try out the classes here at Berkeley so you can expenence the kind of academic work load out here. Try the classes and don ' t just count on word of mouth stories about how the classes really are. Remember, summer classes are open to all. Check out information on this from campus. Willie D.

There ' s sometliing about grace that we all tinci simply irresistible. Grace in its truest, pristine form is getting something we don ' t deserve. We cannot toil for numerous hours under the sun to earn grace, nor can we position ourselves with accolades and exceptional pel iorniaiues to merit a proper stale ot being to receive graie.

People often asked why and perhaps rightly so... and my only response would be " well, it reminds us of the ultimate grace that we once received, and it brings us great jo ' having other people taste just a drop of the oceans of grace we have received. " Many different Christian groups took part in this flower give-away, including Korean-American Campus Missions who happened to pass out free cotton candy and disks on the same day. The central message of Christianity is quite clear amongst all the Christian groups at Cal - God offers his grace in truth. There have been other events and programs which run with this theme of administering grace. Some students have offered free vacuuming services in the dorms just to serve the comimmities in which they live in. In addition, the East Bay Christain lellowship has gone around to people in their communities and asked their neighbors how they can pray for them, offering their prayers as a way to encourage those who may feel as if they are dropping to the depths of the deepest valleys. Some day they hope to have free hot chocolate and coffee available during finals to serve some of the students here during such a stressful time. They also work with different Christian organizations, such as City Team ministries in Oakland, which serves the homeless communit - in the Bay Area. The club also provides small groups for Bible studies and community buildi ng. These small groups are centered around life- change, hoping that in the process of college life they will learn to mature and become people who are deeply concerned with others, and will pursue lives and callings that are focused on giving grace to others, and not hoarding things for themselves. Thus, they hope to raise up men and womi ' ii in this generation who will make a ilitfercnce in the communities the will li e in. men and women who will real h out with grace and compassion to a world that desperately needs grace. ■ Anclivii ' llyiiii Renaissance The riie ASUC Ball was reborn the second I received an answer Irom ASUC President Patrick CamjilH ' !! at iiu CalSO last Inly tliat Berkeley didn ' t haxe any formal daiu cs ())U ' ii to ilir w hole university. 1 was really disap|)oinicil ami clccidi-cl thai L ' er college should have a formal so siuclciils can dress up and Icrl good about themselves.

The teelings of utter joy at seeing the success of the Ball and the lit up faces of the guests are indescribable. People had a great time and definitely had enough to keep them occupied for the short four hours of the Ball. While a horse and carriage gave rides around campus, four live bands played inside. Mag ' s Element, TK421, Something Corporate, and The Syrups were the star bands downstairs while people danced to a 1)1 upstairs in I ' auh Ballroom. f)esserts and snacks were ser ed along with beverages such as Calistoga waters donated b the Cal Convenience Store and Martinelli ' s Sparkling Cider.

While many vegans and vegetarians choose liieir eating lifestyle largely to make a statement of compassion toi animals and against the status quo ot eating factory farmed animals, the health and environmental reasons for going vegan are equally compelling. According to the American Dietetic Association, vegetarian and vegan diets are associated with a reduced risk of numerous diseases including obesity, coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, and kidney disease (ADA Position on Vegetarian Diets, J of ADA, V. 97 No. 11, 1997). The eiuiionmcnial dexaslatioii tliat ii ' sulls from meat prodiH lion has far-reaching effects as well. (;attle grazing necessitates extensive deforestation of tropical rainforests, which often forces native peasants off of their lands and leads to extinction of species, erosion, and water pollution from waste runoff Many important medicines for himrans have been discovered and continue to be developed from plants found in these rainforests which are being destroyed at an alarming rate. In addition, meat production is energetically inefficient because it requires roughly 12 pounds of grain and several hundred gallons of water to produce one pound of beef Therefore, more people in poorer countries could be sustained and chronic hunger could be alleviated if rich countries such as the U.S. substantially reduced or eliminated their meat consumption. This year Cal Vegetarians has actively pursued several goals and liave primarily focused on improving the vegan and vegetarian options in the dining commons and campus restaurants. Members have periodically met witli dining officials, including lean-Pierre Metivier, the Executive C hef, and Nancy luiicii. ttie Director of Dining and Conference Services, to discuss the expansion and improvement of ' egan liZ i 1 1 •mber offers samples of cruelty free cuisine. lyfl Organizations options on campus. To garner more support in tiieir endeavor, Cal Vegetarians has worked with Berkeley Organization for Animal Advocacy (BOAA) to get petition signatures to this effect. Thus far, over 750 signatures have been collected. Cal Vegetarians has also successfully educated the student body about veganism. Activities last semester included a video showing of " Food Without Tear " by the U.K. Vegetarian Society and " What ' s Wrong With American Agriculture? " by Howard Lyman, an ex-cattle rancher turned vegan, and author of " MAD COWBOY: Plain Truth from the Cattle Rancher Who Won ' t Eat Meat. " Howard Lyman is also the founder of Voice for a Viable Future, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on the health, environmental, and ethical benefits of an organic, plant-based diet. Upon Cal Vegetarian ' s invitation, Howard Lyman came to Berkeley to speak on the vegan diet and organic, sustainable agriculture on Monday, April 24, 2000 as a part of a series of speakers for the first day of Earth Week 2000. On Monday, March 20, 2000, Cal Vegetarians celebrated the Great American Meatout by giving out free vegan food samples and literature on Upper Sproul. The variety of delicious vegan treats included Wildwood ' s tofu veggie burgers, Toffuti cutie |non-dairyl " ice-cream " bars, vegan cookies from Alternative Baking Company, teriyaki-flavored tofu. Smart Deli ' s wheat " meat " products, and organic soy milk (plain and chocolate flavored). The Great American Meatout, always celebrated on March 20th, the first day of spring, is a national day of action started by FARM (Farm Animal Reform Movement) to teach people about the destructive impact that today ' s intensive animal agriculture has on consumer health, agricultural resources, environmental qualit ' , and animal welfare. On this day, people are encouraged to pledge to kick the meat habit, at least for a day, and explore a more non- violent, wholesome diet. ■ Arninifi May mm Unofficial mascot.

" In 1882, rugby became the first Cal sports team and in 1996 the UC Berkeley rugby team won the national championship for the thirteenth time, its sixth consecutive win since the tournament began in 1980. The tradition of the " Big Game " began in 1892 with a Stanford victory of 14 to 10. These university sporting events and their fans are the foundation of Cal spirit represented by the Big C, rallying Berkeley students, sometimes as vianners, sometimes as losers, but always together. ti Enduring Cross Country is a sport that requires great strength! and endurance. These athletes run the lOK course of rocky terrain in the heat and the sun, and they do it quicidy. Ihis year, the Gal Men ' s Cross Country team placed first in 3 out of 6 meets they attended. They missed a team selection to the NCAA Cross Country Championships by 4 points, placing seventh in the NCAA Western Regionals. The Cal Women finished in the top 5 in four out of their six meets. Two members of our men ' s team, senior Peter Gilmore and junior Bolota Asmerom, represented Cal at the NCAA Championships. They earned their selections by finishing 13th and 10th, respectively, at the NCAA Western Regionals in Gresham, Oregon. Asmerom finished the lOK course in 30:54. The championships were held in Bloomington, Indiana on November 22. The top 25 finishers won All-American recognition. By being selected, Gilmore and Asmerom are the first Cal men to compete at the NCAA championships other than Richie Boulet (1993) since 1982. In addition, Gilmore was selected to the first team Academic All Pac-10. Asmerom was selected to the second-team. Senior Steve Immel and Junior Ally Combardi earned honorable mention recognition. These athletes show not only skill in their sports, but academic talent. For that, they must be commended. ■ Diana Chai 1999-2000 Cross Country Head Coach Tony Sandoval Men ' s Team Bolota Asmerom Chris Coffee John Collin Martin Conrad Brian Cooke Corey Creasey Peter Egerton Peter Gilmore Steve Immel Craig Lee Zack McGahey Hill McMorran jarrell Meier Nick Martin Mike Pestorich Women ' s Team Linden Bader Lina Biber-Ferro Hrin Belger Dawn Beahm Katy Corliss Titfan I lansen All 1 oinhardi Mary Moore Mina Nikanjam Amber Pierce Stephanie Smith Caniille Stanley Chrisrv Villa Sports I 999-2000 Cross Country Team: Front (Left to Right)- Peter Egerton, Nick Martin, Tank Hart, Brian jhaw, Mary Moore, Dawn Beahm, Stephanie Smith.

' Western Regional 7lh I star Effort Star players are abundant on Cal ' s football team. However, a bowl berth remains elusive for this talented group. Junior Nick Harris is one of these stars. He is the Bears ' star punter, and is ranked second nationally in punting. He was named Pac- 10 Special Teams Player of the Week, averaging 53.1 yards on seven punts against UCLA. Also shining is the Cal " hit squad, " our top-ranked defense. They are ranked first in rushing and scoring defense and second in total defense in the Pac- 10. Our defense have worked hard, performed well, and held up the team this season. The team has been plagued by line-up changes and injuries. In addition, critics point to the offense, which is placed last in the Pac- 10. The team has managed to stay together despite the criticism. " A lot of teams would have collapsed, they would have started complaining, " says Destefano. " We take a lot of pride, not only as a defense but as a team in not getting caught up in that. 1 tliink if you ' re going to be good you have to somehow keep away from that human nature. We want to continue to take a lot of pride in being a good defense and we ' re not going to cninibU ' in the last few games of the season.

Though they have not made it to the post-season, iheir tans have complete faith in iliem for the future years. ■ Diana Cha The Cal Bears and the Arizona Sundevils clash at the line of scrimmage in both team ' s Pac- 10 opener.

Despite the star effort, Cal lost the game 31-27. 1 Different Goals As defending champions this season, the California Men ' s Baslcetball team had a lot to live up to. Last year, the Bears, who were returning from a probation year, but this year were working to reestablish the Bears as a national force. With the leadership and experience of four seniors, the Bears won the first national post-season crown for Cal since the 1959 NCAA Championship . This year, the team changed almost completely. With only last year ' s NIT MVP Junior Sean Lampley returning as a starter and a freshman-dominated lineup, the post-season was a learning opportunity for the youngest team in Berkeley ' s history. The focus was on growth and working toward the future, rather than on winning Still, a championship victory was on the minds of all players. The road to the NIT has been rough for this team of mostly underclassmen. Cal lost six of nine Pac-10 games at home and lost to Washington State, giving the Cougars their only conference win. The lineups changed frequently, with Coach Brau using 12 players in 15 different lineups. However, Cal started the season with a 9-3 record. Iheir 3-point percentage has improved, and they have a stronger presence in the middle tiian they have had in recent years. With this, they recorded a second place finish in the Top of the World Classic and swept UCIA and USC for the first time since 1995. This year ' s team showed promise, which is what drove fans to the seats of the new Walter A. Haas Jr. Pavilion. There were five sellouts this season, and there was not a game with an attendance of less than 10,000. Ibis promise took the form of Lampley, MVP of Cal, who led in scoring and rebounding during the 1999-2000 season. It also took the form of the five freshman who were the next leading scorers in the team. Though the Bears finished the season with a 18-15 record and a quarterfinal loss to Wake Forest, the future of Cal men ' s basketball is in the hands of the grovwng team. ■ Diana Cliai 1 999-2000 Men ' s Basketball 18-15 Overall Record 11-7 Home 4-6 Away 7-11 Conference Head Coach: E?en Braiiii lampley.

Not only that, the Bears recorded win over No. 1 ranked Santa Clara and No. 14 ranked San Diego, and tied No. 6 Saint Louis. This all occured th same year that the 22,000-seat Goldman Field at Edwards Stadium opened. This year, the Bears were ranked No. 15 by Soccer America in the Oct. 18 polls, a feat not to be overlooked. This is in part due to their great defense. Cal ranked seventh in the nation defensively during the regular season with a school record 0.60 goals-against average. They also had nine shutouts to add to that amazing string of numbers. Whenever Cal led at the half or scored first, the men ' s team generally came through. This consistency is what made them great. California senior Derrick Dyslin, junior Kendall Simmonds, and sophomore Chris Roner were selected to the Mountain Pacific Soccer Federation Mountain Division All-Conference first team. Bears seniors Chris Sawicki, lohn Macdonald, Doug Brooks, and junior Ramiro Arredondo earned Second-Team recognition. Despite their achievements, they were not invited to the 32-team NCAA Men ' s College Cup. Cal head coach told Media relations, " We ' re very disappointed not to be selected to the NCAA Tournament. We felt we were deserving of a bid based on our overall record, strength of schedule and quality wins. We ' ve had great year and have a lot to be proud of as a team.

Altliough the No. 3 ranked Bears placed fourth overall, the team set countless records this year The Bears started the competition with a US Open record time of 1:40:18 in the 200-meter free relay. Seniors Kolbisen and Omphroy, Haley Cope, and Joscelin eYeo topped the record set in 1992 by Americus Blue. This was UC Berkeley ' s first NCAA relay title in women ' s swimming. Senior EUi Overton placed second in the 200-meter IM, and the 200-meter inedley relay team took third, making the first day a foreshadowing of the wins to come. The second day of the meet was the day of world records. The 200-meter medley relay won the NCAA title and set a world record with a time of 1:49:23. lunior Cope, freshman Staciana Stitts, senior Waen Minpraphal, and sophomore Yeo beat the Sweden ' s 1999 record of 1:49:47. The world records didn ' t stop there. Cope also set her own world record in the 50-meter back leadoff with a time of 27:25. Germany ' s Sandra Volker held the previous record of 27:27. On the final day of competition, the Bears had two second place finishes in the 100-meter breast and the 100-meter back, as well as a third and fifth place finishes in the 200-meter breast.

Which player stands out the most in Morisa Yang ' s eyes? Morisa admirably states, " Stefi Graf is retired. 1 really looked up to her when 1 was young er. She ' s so professional. She works really hard. She inspires me to give it my all. " And surprisingly, Stefi Graf is the new girlfriend of Andre Agassi. " I actually saw them together at the Davis club. He ' s fun to watch. I was really shocked when I first heard about it. it doesn ' t seem like Graf. She is very to herself. He ' s so open, and such a flashy, showy person, so it surprised me. " Morisa Yang explains, " When you see them together, they ' re so happy. He ' s more humble and he teaches Graf to show more emotion. " Emotion is noticeable on Morisa Yang when she puts her heart into tennis. Morisa ' s tennis talent came naturally. Her dad took her to play tennis when she was about eight years old. She had a lot of fun and begged her father to become her first coach, and years later, the work paid off and her talent attracted many colleges. Morisa, flattered by recruits, indicates, " I considered UCSD, Rice, Ul ' fiin, WnivcMsity of Illinois, Williams and Mary, Texas A M, and many more. For tennis you only have to sign for one school. You guys have to apply to many different schools. If you go out on recruiting trips, basically you ' re already accepted to the school; so we only have to ajijiK for one school. It ' s pretty neat. " Before coming to Gal, Morisa Yang was ranked number one in women ' s singles and immediately was offered many lucrative college athlciie scholarships. The friendly atmosphere was what made Cal stand mil loi hn. " They pay for everything: airfare, hotel, and food. When 1 came I here, I stayed at the Claremont for a couple days that was really nice. They basically had me meet al the players on the team and showed me the best parts of Berkeley. The players took me to nice restaurants like Zachary ' s with really good pizza, and took me clubbing, showed me a lot of stuff yoi can do around here. And even though I stayed at a fancy hotel, I decided to stay in the dorms one night to experience dorm life. And 1 really like the team, the coach, and the people are so nice — unlike people from other schools. " Although it seems like the women ' s tennis tean has a lot of fun, they play hard and work hard. " Coming here, I knew that everyone on the team was very good. 1 just expected to try my best and gi from there. But so far, things are going better than thought. I ' ve been playing really well. The hard work I put into tennis really pays off. " With the help of Morisa, the Cal women ' s tennis team this year was ranked as high as 2nd in the nation, and as low as 9th place. No matter what happened, the team remained in the top 11) ii National Tennis Rankings. Pac 10 has tlic stiongest tennis conference. Currently, Stanford has been reigning tin- nuinlu-r one champion in the nation ;iiul six of the schools in tile Pac 10 are in the national to]i ten. riie toughest school to play against is probabh Stanford. Morisa attests, " They have almost the best of the best go to Stanford. One girl |ai Stanlotdl gave her scholarship away to the best gir 111 the nation. We lost 3 times to Stanford. Last time we pl.ncd ihcin we lost to them to .SI, and iii one has taken them to T) -4 tills year or last year. " To even beat them, any school has to pla a level oi , jraiTi V " ■. " Ill Sports the in ITigi iser jablt (?o levels higher than Stanford does. Despite the traditional Cal and Stanford valrv, Morisa points out that members of the anford ' s women ' s tennis team are actually good lends with the members on the Cal women ' s •nnis team. The girls go to each others ' places on le weekends to celebrate birthdays. On Big Game ay, thev invite each other for pre-game and post- ame bashes. " They may be cocky on the 3urt...0n the court, you kind of have to be cocky ) win. But they ' re really nice people. " Even under the pressure of intense academics nd fierce tennis competitions. Morisa balances er school work u ith her sports life very well. lorisa recalls, " When 1 was younger, I was pretty eak. 1 got really good at tennis, the sport was ;ally good for me. It helped me stay healthy. " In ict, as a freshman she is noted to be 5 ' 9 " on the ' omen ' s tennis website, and now she ' s 511 " . lorisa remarks, " I grew a couple more inches in ollege. Isn ' t it scan, ' ? If I grow any taller I ' m going ) cut off m ' legs or something. " To dri e her tennis ambition even further, lorisa acli el works out with the older ispectable players such as seniors Amy lensen nd Claire Curran. " . 11 the older players on the Monsa Wang in her Cal gear gives the camera a funny look. team they inspire me so much. We both [freshman tennis players] are lackadaisical on the court. They are so intense. When we practice we look over, and they ' re working so hard. They drive themselves so much. Even in the weight room, the Head Football Coach Tom Holmoe says the team that works the most is the women ' s tennis team. " With the heaw-duty workouts, Morisa still has the emotions and positive attitude that drive her to plav tennis superbly . Growing from a weak kid to a talented player takes a lot of endurance. She is also a luck member of the women ' s tennis team. Keep an eye out for her. And lastly Morisa asserts to motivate people to pick up a racket and play tennis. " I encourage people when they have kids to encourage their kids to play tennis. It ' s such a great sport. You meet so many people. You get to travel and you ' re healthy, very healthy. Even try for college tennis. It ' s great opportunity to form memorable friendships.

Undefeated Pat- 10 and Intercollegiate Rowing Association National Championship seasons for both the varsity and JV eights and a Pac- 1 championship and IRA silver medal for the freshman team made this year one of the best since the program started in 1868. Ranked first in the preseason US Rowing Collegiate Coaches ' Poll, the 2000 Cal team aimed to equal if not beat, the 1999 season. Despite having only two returning oarsmen, the 1999 racing experience made the Bears the team to beat. Taylor and Walton, returning members, provided the foundation for the team, while Andreja Stevanovic, Edward Hamilton and Jason Boyle, who have won four IRA varsity bronze medals among them, and othi ' i leUirning | ' national champions offered the opportunity of building an unbeatable team. The team li ed up to all expectations. Cal ' s varsity, TV. and freshman eight combined to produce the third c()nsL ' CLiil e sweep of men ' s eights events at the Pac-10 Rowing Championships, which is a first for Cal Rowing. It was the varsity ' s third consecutive Pac-10 title, a string of victories that has only been accomplished one other time in the histor ' of Bears Men ' s Crew. " I ' m very pleased with today ' s outcome, " said coach Steve Gladstone of the results of the I ' ac-lO Championships. " The JV and freshman crews really rose to the occasion and each defeated crews that they had not yet beaten this year ihat put the pressure on the arsity and they handled it well. " ' I ' he wins kept rolling in at the IRA national championship. I lu- varsity eight beat the pre ' iously undefeated No. 2 seeded Brown by five seconds on the ( jxipcr Rixer on luni ' 3. This was Cal ' s second consecutive 1I?. title. Ihe freshman team also won in their race. " I think that this was the [varsityl crew ' s best race of the year, " said Gladstone of the Championship race. " It ' s really satisf ' ing. What a great rowing crew. They have really good speed Its not that they are fast starting crew, but once they get up to speed they can sustain it. " The success of the Bears is due in part to the excellent coaching staff The IR.A win was coach Ste e Gladstone ' s eighth ' arsit ' Challenge ( up. the most among active coaches. 1 le now ranks secoml ot all time, behind Charles " Pop " Courtney who won 1 1 IHAs . iniMkh.uilaii has brought the freshman crew ti two of the four IR.X wins in ( ;al history.

The Bears siarii ' il the season with a 3-1 record in the opening month. Its one loss was to one ot {Canada ' s premiere collegiate teams, known for intense play. In this game, the Bears ' poor tackling and handling errors disappointed even coach lack Clark: " We set the bar so low in the first half that we could only get better, but we still did not play to our potential. We don ' t need to get bigger or faster, we need to pla the rugby we alread ha e in us. " In their three wins, the Bears showed more skill anil stamina. In the season opener, Cal had an (ncrwhelmingHl-G win over Nevada. Although mud is meant to be an equalizer, nothing could slow the Bears ' backs in the game against St. Mary ' s. I ' he skill, though elusive in the game against ( ' anada, helped power the Cal Bears to their I Oth consecutive title. Battling heat, humidity, and what some described as " arcane " officiating, the Hears tlominated Wyoming, winning (i2- Hi. I he win is best attributed to the Bears ' loose fo rw arils and outside backs. Flanker Kort Sriiuhrrt started the scoring spree with the help of No. 8, Shaun Paga. In the game, Schubert scored on three tries. Freshman wing Cameron Bume added to the show by scoring on two tries, one ol which was the result of a 60 meter solo 1 im.

In the last 40 seconds, the women were still down by 1. The Bears, with the outstanding senior leadership of Carrie Scribner, tied the game with just three seconds remaining. Described as a hero by some, Scribner, normally a defender, went on another attack and scored the game winner with just 2(5 seconds remaining in o erlinie.

With many games to come and a shortage ot players, word went out to Mark that he was welcome to conie to practice on ( )( lobcr 20. We probably figured we could get more dues money that way.

Ihe water polo pkner ' s ability to emerge above the surface of the water with power and strength, as well as the ability to make rapid movements along the surface defying human hydrodynamics, with an added touch of elegance... A dancer ' s artistic flair with choreography, musical expressions, and audience contact... Add grace aiul fluidity, multiply by two. three, or eight indi iduals synchronizing each part of every movement with each other and witli the music, and you have our sport. Synchronized swimming is a sport requiring overall body strength and agility, grace and beauty, split-second timing, musical interpretation, and dramatic flair. It is a unititie sport in which power, strength, and tec hnical skill are displayeil in an artisticalh ' choreographed piece. The coinpetiti f rules and maiuiei nl judging of synchronized swimming are similar to its counterparts, flgure skating and gymnastics. There are four events recognized at (Collegiate Nationals in synchronized swimming: solo, duet, trio, and team (eight swimmers). In addition to these routine events, each competitor must participate in the compulsory figure competition. Ihe scores earned in each event are added to together to determine each college ' s hnal ranking. To perform a strenuous routine while maintaining an effortless appearance is a very difficult and important quality that is expected by the judges. To understand the physical demands and endurance needed to perform the 3 1 2 to 5 minute routines, consider running while holding your breath for lengths of time up to . ' iO seconds. Ihe { alifornia Synchronized SwimmingTeam, despite the many obstacles and challenges of being a club sport, has represented Cal victoriously.

On a Friday night w hen most people check out the latest mo ic releases complemented by greasy popcorn or pcUiipei their stomachs with expensi e cuisine in San I rancisco, plenty ot students line up to work out at the RSI- to remain health conscious and maintain their fitness. The demand for stationary cycling, Stairmaster machines, and racquetball courts far exceeds availability, so members sign-up for machines ahead of time and e en line up for pool access. To ease waiting time, people pack the must weight room where hard core weight lifters clench their teeth and persevere through entire sets to perfect their muscle tone.

BfARS Referendum Complete Support 2:45 AM is not generally a good time to start your day. But on the morning of the UCLA game, there was no other choice. After all, Midnight Madness, i.e., the first time the men ' s basketball team got to practice for the 2000 season (and in Haas Pavilion lo boot!) only comes once a year. The UCLA football game only comes once a year. Why choose? And so, after Midnight Madness, at 2:45 Saturday morning, when my roommate, Jen, and I left our apartment to catch our ride, we were joining eight other cars full of Rally Commers making the migration to our Southern branch. The roads weren ' t too full that early in the morning, and Chris, who was driving, was staying awake (due in part to Jen ' s fanatic don ' t- fall-asleep conversation) so I leaned my head against the seat and stared out the back windshield at the (dark) blue and gold starred sky. Once in a while the cell phone would ring, keeping Chris notilied of where we were stopping for food and gas, whether or not we were all still together, what roads we were taking. It wouldn ' i hnvv surprised nie it I liad been back in my apartment when I woke up, il the whole ride had been the kind of soft dream that can steal through a niinil on the bus or during a lecture. A Rally Comm member proudly waves the Cal Flag to get the crowd excited at the UCLA game. By Gam, the gas and food places we stopped at were beginning to serve people who looked as if they had slept all night. Their faces were clean, their clothes were pressed. It was as if we were some kind of figment of the night that hadn ' t quite faded yet. But we did our best to fit in and bought McDonald ' s breakfasts, eyeing the horizon where the sun was starting to come up. By now people were talking about the huge earthquake (over seven points on the Richter scale) that had rolled through Joshua lYee right as we were leaving Berkeley. Southern California was reeling from the Cal influx, obviously. It was a sign, possibly. Knock on wood, liiough. Because Cal hadn ' t beaten UCLA in years. After McDonald ' s it was time for the last haul over the Crapevine into the official i Southlaiul. Ciiris curled into the passenger seat. Sarah, who ii.ul cio i ' d in the front seat through llie tiisl JKillOrthe I ide. now look I lie wheel, len scruiu lied into one corner ol the back, too tired to keep any inoic conversations going, and I coiled inii) iheother. When we began to wake up. the siui was warming the moimtains and the roails were begiiuiing to fill. It was eight am. Ihe outskirts of Los Angeles seemed unreal, too close, 00 soon. 1 lie haze of sleep deprivation hung on the edges of the rees and hills and buildings we passed. As soon as the eight cars of IS checked into the hotel and changed our clothes (for the most lart) it was time to go to the game. We navigated the 1 A freeway, xriving our customary several hours early. In the surreal golf course that the Rosebowl evidently uses for larking, we were directed through the grass and around many other ehicles in our search for spots. Then we marched around the lerimeter of the stadium on a rugby-butted quest to find the UCLj ially Committee (popularly known as Card Comm because their lain function is to do card stunts) in the hope that they would offer is free food. We found them in the midst of a huge tailgate elebration. complete with radio station giveaways for Baby Bear ins, makeshift shrines celebrating UCLA and denouncing USC, and egularback-of- [le-car larbecues. Card lomm was very lice to us - tliey ave us cookies, lizza, drinks, etc, nd referred to us tie entire time as CaJ Ral. " They lidn ' t act very tireatened by us ir by the idea of lur football team, " hat ' s the eerie hing about UCLA they are so tiuch like us that 1 is almost like The Cal cheering section was filled with dedicated students who drove down to LA to support the bears in their win. ratching another version of Cal - stretched and changed a little, but dth the basics kept the same down to the fight song. It is hard to get eally excited about not liking their school because it is so similar to lurs. In LA, yes. Without a stadium for the campus, certainly. With a tolen mascot and fight song, of course. Maybe it isn ' t so hard to oot against them after all, come to think of it. A little later, as a group of us walked through the tailgate in a leep-deprived fog, a woman laughed a little and called out " You ;uys sure came a long way for a loss! " After all, Cal doesn ' t beat JCLA very often. I was so tired that I dreamed of cool hotel room heets and was close to agreeing with her. It was much too hot for ugby shirts inside the Rosebowl. It was too hot for much of nothing. Most people knotted their rugbies around their waists and at glazed in the sun while we watched the pre-game warm-ups, taring from time to time in fascination at the big playback screen. Sports Slowly, the seats in front of and behind us began to fill with people from Cal. It was a beautiful thing. First, there were random groups of friends who sat together a few rows down. Then the alums and their families began to fill in the area on our right so that the Northern California section was divided neatly in half. Finally, a few minutes before the game, the frats arrived, many of them with customized shirts made specially for this particular southern road trip ( " What ' s a bruin anyway? A small dickless bear! " ). Our rooting section was packed. At least from my (unbiased, of course) vantage point, it was the most densely populated area of the stadium. A tidal wave of dark blue and gold and white. The alums sat when the game started, and the majority of the student half stayed standing, so it was just like a home game in Berkeley. What can I say about the game? UCLA was completely shut out. It was as surreal as the drive south. We watched in disbelief and delight (and slow-motion, thanks to TV time-outs) as our team put points on the board and their team. ..didn ' t. lust as the heat baking the stadium began to cool down with the setting sun, we officially won the game. UCLA fans streamed out of the Rosebowl before it was even over, and Cal Band played song after song for the Cal section as we danced and took pictures and cheered and reminded each other how worth it our sleepless night had been for this. In any other situation, the parties in our hotel (the guest list of which was composed largely of Rally Comm and Band members) should have gone on all night. But due to the driving and the excitement of the game, it was low-key to say the least. We bickered over the order in which we were taking showers until it was time for dinner. Groups of people scoured the area for restaurants without an hour long wait. But the mood was good. All through the streets near our hotel, all through the restaurants where we ate, there were formerly smug UCLA fans, shaken by this sudden change in the football scene. No matter what happened later in the season, we would always have this one day, when our team had claimed a little bit of LA as Bear Territory. ■ Elizabeth McMunn, Rally Comm Symbol ho Although every school has a mascot to garner school spirit, each mascot has some iinicjue features. Oskris unique in " his " own way. Unlike luost other mascots, he is friendly, not fierce, anti iiis identity is always a mystery. In an effort to become better acquainted with our favorite Golden Bear, Blue Gold interviewed one of the privileged few who are on the Oski Committee. DC:We ' ll start off with what is on the minds of most innocent Cal student. Why the secrecy? The secrecy.. .It was all started by the original Oski. He was a shy, quiet man, and he didn ' t want the attention, so he kept his identity a secret. Also, the bear represents the students and tlie school, he shouldn ' t consume a single identity. Any one of the students can be the bear. He doesn ' t have a single identity. DC: Without compromising yourself, can you tell me how you maintain the secrecy? Well, there are secret meetings. Only the people who assist the bear and are the bear know who the influential. In fact, 2 years ago was the . ' iOth bear is. No one else knows. When the bear is anniversary. It was a big thing, and the original and changing, only the bear and his her assistant is new Oski appeared together before Homecoming. allowed in the room. Keeping the secret means The original Oski would appear randomly at games blowing oft peo|)li ' sometimes and making a lot ol with a papci niaihe mask. I k ' ' ii peilorm in front of excuses. the .uidiciu ' c. I he hear is niocielcd allei this DC: Have people ever tried to discover the original ( )ski. I he Hear is small because Hoi kwrll identity of Oski? was short. A lot ol his ap|ieaiaiice was set with the Alttiough ttie Cal mascot ' s identity is a mystery to the students, it is no mystery why children love him. He is a friend to ali children who come to support Cal. I ' m sure that some people must have tried to pull his head off, but no one as far as I know has actually tried to discover him thiough covert ojierations. DC: How many people know the identity of Oski? 12 students, basically the Oski committee and Oski ' s helpers. DC: Give me a brief description of the Oski Committee. The Oski Committee doesn ' t i meet on a regular basis. They meet to talk about events. ..when, what.. There is a lot of logistics involved. The Oski Committee consists of the chair and the members whose roles are to either be or assist the bear. The people who are chosen are basically people who know people. You are sought after to be the bear. Generally you must have great school spirit. Basically the current committee chooses its successors. Someone will approach you. DC: When did all of this start? Bill " Rocky " Rockwell starteil it all a lon ; lime ago. He graduated in the class of ' 4H. 1 hat class had raised a lot of money for the school and was very = C Sports Oski plays with his new young friends. Although some have criticized his pot belly IS harmless demeanor, supporters defend him as being one of the people. iriginal Oski. I think the original Oski put )illo vs in his shirt. Over the years it got ixempiified into what he is. He ' s like a cartoon iharacter. He ' s not supposed to be realistic. It is imazing how much the little kids like the bear, ' he kids think he ' s the coolest thing ever. It Jlows them to be connected to the University it an early age. Some people may think that the vhole secrecy thing is a sort of elitism, but it sn ' t. It was started for other reasons. It was •ecause he didn ' t want the attention focused in him. Oski got his name from the Oski Wow ]heer. )C: How did Oski and his committee react to he proposal of changing his appearance? ! " he costume changes about every 10 years. The :olor of his coat and his oversized shoes have :hanged, so he looks nicer. He still has the ame appeal. He ' s a friendly and lovable bear hat kids like. The changes in the past were ninor. They weren ' t designed to change his :haracter. The new proposals want to make lim a fierce bear, more intimidating, but this is lot his appeal. I ' m confident that little will be lone. )C: What traditions have developed over the ' ears, and can you speak on his behalf of his avorite traditions? rhere aren ' t really a lot of traditions, just ippearing at the games. The spectators see the ;heerleaders and the band, but they can ' t issociate with them. The bear can go to the stands, to the other side. He can roam around, shake hands, give hugs. He promotes school spirit. DC: What are the best aspects of Oski? Every school has a mascot. For some reason, Oski strikes a chord with the alumni and the students beyond what most mascots do. Most mascots are very visible. Oski is abnormal in that no other mascot is a secret. This gives him an air of mystery and intrigue. He ' s fun and loving, not scary. Compare him to the USC Trojans, ASU Sun Devils. They ' re all fine mascots, but they are the sa me as all the others, same picture, same message. Oski is unique. There is no one else like him. The mascots of other universities change with pop culture and go with what ' s " in. " Oski never changes. He ' s special, and it ' s a waste to throw that away. DC: Any thoughts on the Stanford tree? The tree is... I have to say that they have a unique mascot as well and just as much controversy around their games. In that respect, I say good job. The current tree, however, is a complete idiot, a moron. He has no respect. He is making a fool of the University. No one would want him to go up to their kids. Oski stays behind the mask, whereas the tree pulls off his hood. Then he ' s getting all the glory, and that is very self-centered. The tree changes every year though, so maybe next year they will have a better mascot. ■ Interview conducted by Diana Cliai ■■■rir !■ - ■ 1999-2000 Cal iiiiiiHni«» " {!lTnV ' ' Women ' s Team Results Over all Record 28-7 Second at MPSF Tournament Colette Gllnkowski Brenna Hleener Beth Iruin Kaliya Voiing lulia ( esnik Brooke Spittler Julie Arnold Cristen Ka zari I. aura Clrahant Shelly lohnslon c;hris lane Heather (ilendinning Megan Ricks Courtney Devenish Shannon Braun Bridgette Donner Corey Miller Lisa Berquist Fana Fuqua Coach Pi ' ter Asch Men ' s Team Results 14- 1 1 Overall Record I lead Coach Peter Asch Assistant Coach DougArth Jerry Smit Eldad I lazor Albert Wo Joe Kaiser Rob Arroyo Spencer Dornin Adam Metzger Robert Palmer Andrew Stoddard Chris Dornin James Lathrop Eric Johnson Mike West Toddllylton Russell Bernstein Ke jn Ahasev Top: Cal Men ' s Water Polo members huddle and give a team cheer before the game.

SSB The founding of the first Greek letter society at UC Berkeley was in 1871 and the society was the lota chapter of the Zeta Psi fraternity. Since that historic beginning, UC Berkeley students have assimilated into over 40 fraternities and sororities. The idea of a university reaches back to ancient Greece and, accordingly, the Greek system has come to be synonymous with a university system. UC Berkeley is no exception and as a symbol of the grand tradition of universities, founded upon the ideal of " the great New England colleges, offering a thoroughly classical curriculum of Latin and Greek, " its students have not failed to recognize more than just the academic side of Greek life. - np Sigma Nil I ralciiiil) tiaxclh to Loh Angeles The members of Sigma Nu took a road-trip to Los Angeles to attend the UCL- game on the weekend of October 15th. fhey liad an awesome time cheering on the Cal team, not to mention witnessing Cal humiliate UCLA at the Rose Bowl witii a shuiout store of 17-0.

The fraternity ' s goal was to gather sponsorships to support them during that week. The brothers were out on cani jus the whole week making a clear presence and spreading awareness of their philanthropic cause. They organized a " Bounce for Beats " fundraiser, where they bounced basketballs to raise money. They also extended the basketball idea; in addition to having the brothers only stand in front of Sather Gate and bounce balls, the house invested in cheap basketballs so that every brother could carry a ball and dribble it around campus all that week. The basketballs attracted a lot of attention as they gathered between classes at a designated spot on Sproul. The brothers of Sigma Alpha Mu, sigma-sigma chapter nnished the week with much success as they raised over $2,100. It was a chapter goal to start a tradition for this philanthropic week to be knovm and expected from SAMMY each year. ■ Jeffrey Park The Raiderettes show their support for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation by joining] I he brothers on Sproul multiple times during the week.

The graduating class consisted of twelve young men, who live on in fame as the " 12 Apostles. " That same year, 199 students began attending classes at IJC Berkeley with the completion of North and South Halls. In the year 2000, much has changed. Enrollment tops 30,000, North Hall is merely a recollection of a bygone era, and the university ' s army of apostles numbers about 6,000. Despite the distant memory of 1873, one fact remains. The graduates of UC Berkeley continue to pursue and earn exalted states of knowledge and vital positions in society. llilU Mh ' I Integrative Biolog ' Kric .lames Acax Integrative Biolog laiik .l(i ((ili AtlaiiKi Economics Amy Joyce Atlain ' Architectuif Miihillr I.Miciic A(laiii - ali()ii Knglish Olllbukola Afolaxaii-.lrjrliiM Electrical Engineering and Cornputer Science Margaret N.

We started out the year as co-design editors, only to find ourselves thrown into the daunting titles of co-editors-in-chief. This was not at all what we expected or imagined of our sophomore years at Cal... but life is funny like that. To our rescue came amazing individuals who were not only dedicated to recording Cal ' s history, but who made the yearbook office more lively, efficient, colorful, and hilarious thaii we ever remember it being. Thank you to Jane Roehrig, our Herff- Jones representative, and Xavier Jiernandez, Jr., the Student Publications advisor. We are grateful for not only your suggestions and helpful criticism, but most importantly, for your constant support, understanding, and encouragement. Thank you also to Sally Jones of the Herff Jones printing plant in Shawnee Mission, Kansas, Jan Crowder of the ASUC Auxiliary, Paul Bilgore of Lauren Studios, and the Eshleman Library and Student Publications staff for your patience and support. Above all, thank you to our won derful staff — your dedication and enthusiasm helped to rebuild the foundations of the Blue Gold yearbook. Thanks for putting up with us, and for being so darn fun.
