" onunittiT had boon working for months as oarix as Spring 2007 in an olTort to iroato a Homotoming Wook stuilonts would novor lorgot. The organizers ' greatest challenge was student apathy. " In high school Homecoming was a pretty big deal, but not so much in college, " said sophomore Ke in Chou. " If 1 see something going on I might join, but I have no idea il I h ill. I should kind ol leel bad about it. " ■■Mthough Homecoming has traditionally focused on the football game and alumni, organizers have been working to increase awareness and student en- gagement. The Student Homecoming Team, a subset of the .Mumni Association, started in 2005 to help facilitate this participation. " Wo dellnilolv try to incorporate a larger group on campus than just the ' ra-ra go Bears ' group, " said Jaz i Junge, co chair ol the 2007 team. Junge said the Student HomccomingToam works to attract a variety of students through their wide range of events. Thev hosted lour to five events per day during the week, including a competition lor students to act or grow I like Oski and a photography contest called " Caltographv 94720. " The events built up throughout the week, culmi- nating w ith a football game against Oregon State and weekend activities such as the Homecoming Pre Came Rally, which had an attendance of 10,000 stu- dents, alumni, parents and community members. " One of our goals is roallv to build the Cal com- munit , " said Junge. " S ' e tr to make every effort so that |sludents| feel connected to the generations of Cal " Monica Porter, Vice Chair of Spirit for the lIC Rally Committee, agreed, saving that Homecoming is a time for students to learn about Berkeley ' s hi-, torv and evolution. " It is our hope that alumni and students will com. together in order for alumni to share stories and i periences of the past and students to continue li build a solid network lor when thev leave Berkeley, " she said. The LIC Rally Committee also hosted numerous student oriented events during the week, including their annual free Homecoming barbecue, the first ever " Berkeley Throughout the . ge.s " iashion sho«, and a Homecoming Collocjuium leaturing lormer Cal foollial! coach Joe Kapp in a discussion ol tin 25th anniversary of The Play. " Bringing everyone back to campus at one time over Homecoming builds a great sense of commu- nity anti Cal pride - and getting the students involved during Student Homecoming Week w ill encourage them to come back to campus after they graduate to enjoy Homecoming as alums, " said Erin Proudloot. a UC Berkeley alumna and the manager of .Mumni and Student Relations. Though Homecoming becomes more anti mon popular each year for alumni (2007 had about 1 ,000 more alumni attend over 2006), increa.sing student involvement remains hard to achieve. Still, students from the Homecoming Team to the Rally Commit- tee are committed to making this event memorable. Alter all, if the wittv-named events don ' t draw peo- ple, the free food always will. ||(I1 OH tnHIll Im ' s t II ' ) tut I HonECon RRur MiM ' «■«•» ' 4 ,.

She has also been politically involved I animal rights, environmental lauses and mm rolinance. ' orlman, 26, has served as Ambas.sador of Hope the non profit Foundation for International nmunitx .Assistance (TINCA) .since graduating from Harvard in 2003. Often called the " World Bank for the Poor, " FINCA is the pioneer ofvillage banking, a microllnance methodology in which recipients of microloans • loans as small as S50 lorm " village banks " to support one another, manage all funds, and resolve loan delincjuencv problems. Portman talked about her first-hand experience seeing women empowered through microllnance. " .MIcrofinancing is a compelling way for people, especially women in poverty, to move out of poxertv, " she .said, adding that women 70 percent of the world ' s poor. " They can form a village bank, ensure each other ' s loans, have meetings and pav the loans back once they ' re able to. " Portman also noted that women involved in microfinance sav they receive greater respect Irom their husbands and children. " You just see a whole situation that is able to change because of the idea that the poor should haxe access to banks, " Portman said. " It ' s not rags to riches, but it certainly is improving. " Steven Weber, political science professor and director of UC Berkeley ' s Institute of International Studies, moderated a discussion between Portman and students about the need for voung people to get inxolved in supporting impoxerished communities around the xvorld. " I xxas reallv scared that there xxould be a Star Wars fan and no one would be interested in mv cause, " she told the audience, xvho xvere invited to ask questions. " I admire vou all (or your passion and interest. " Although some students thought Portman ' s celebrity status had more to do xxith the exent ' s popularitx than interest in microfinance, " there ' s no better xxav Ut inxest xour celebrity than for a good cause , " said freshman .Angela .Miller. Indeed, Portman ' s presentation resonated w ith many audience members. Freshman Rachel Whxte said, " The message xxas that voung people can make a change.

Almost 5,000 structures ■ including over 2,000 homes ■ were de- stroyed, as more than I 5, (XX) firefighters and l.iOO fire engines were used in the containment ellorts. The fires started on Oct. 2 1 , when the driest brush in years erupted across SoCal with the help ol desert like Santa ni yyinds. Within the week, Goy. .Arnohl Schwar cncgger had declared seven counties in a state of emergency: Los . ngeles. Orange, Riyersicle, San Bernardino, San liiego, Santa Barbara and ' entura. President Bush also issued a partial federal declara- tion, which proyided federal a.ssistance for debris re moyal and emergency protection, including fire fight mg, evacuation operations and .sheltering of displaced people and animals. . ccording to the Office of Student Research, 7,886 of the Fall 2007 student population hailed from the seven counties in a state ( emergency. Slightly more than 1 ,000 were from San Diego County, w here the fires were at their worst. " Many people who are part of the UC family have been displaced or other wise affected by the fires, " said UC President Roln-rt Dvnes in a statement. " 1 vvant them to know that they arc being thought of, and that the University will work to a.ssist them in every way possible. " The office of Campus Life and Leadership also sent an email to students Irom affecte l areas t ffer- ing support services, ranging Irom counseling at the Tang Center to emergency loans from the Financial . i(l Office. ■As the fires worsened, students like freshman Keri Murphy said thev felt frustrated and hopeless. " It ' s re- ally hard being away Irom home not knowing if your house is okay, ii your Iriends or lamily are okay, il their houses are okav, " said Murphy, whose family lives in Ramona, in San Diego County. Other students like Murphy were attempting to cope yyith the situation lar avyay from home, many remaining anxious as thev awaited word on the safety of their loved ones and homes. " There ' s nothing I can Story by Coitlin Green do about It II I llv down there, what am I supposed to do? " said freshman Mona Zarka, who is from Irvine. For many, news could not lome fast enough. " I feel Irustrateil just because the news is yery locused, the information is just on what ' s happening right now, but it ' s so big that they can ' t cover every aspect. " said . turphv, who relied on her lamily lor inlormation. " It ' s just 1 want to know how Ra mona is being affected, and I lan ' t get that. " The minds of several Cal athletes were also focused nil their homes and families. Throughout practice, it was hard lor some SoCal natives to concentrate on the their game, knowing that their homes stood helpless to the fire burning 400 miles south of Berkelcy. " l was [at practice), but I was mentally off in my own little place, " said women ' s soccer player Torrey Delaplane, who is from Valley Center, a small toven north ol San Diego. " Practice helps you not really worry about it, it helps you not think about it. " Further .south in San Diego County, the parents of women ' s golfer .Mlison Goodman, whose home is in Carmel Valley, had to evacuate twice. Meanwhile, the home of teammate .Andrea Waters was threatened, as the fires came one andahalf miles away Irom her Jamul, Calif., house, and of Bears quarterback Nate Longshore, whose backyard in Canyon Country, Ca- lif., was in flames. " The stuff is just stufi, " said Long shore, whose family moved back into the house. " I ' m not really worried about the stuff, as long as everyone is sale or getting to a place vyhere it ' s safe. " .Mthough Longshore said his concerns about the fires did not affect his preparation for upcoming games, Goodman and Waters both lound it dillu ult to get through practice rounds, " . ndrea and I were definitely distraded just because it yvas getting closer and closer, " said (loodman. " Right before, I found out two ol my Irienils had lost their homes, so yesterday we were just concerned, thinking about a lot of things. It aflected our focus in practice. " .Mthough thev did not opt to go home, a seryice ollered to atliletes by the university, " it ' s really nice to know that you have support here and to know that vou have options, " said Cioodman.

" Berkeley has responded to this tragic event using its own stafT, m aterials and volunteer resources, " said City Manager I ' hil Kamlarz in a statement provided to the California legislature on .Nov. 1 5 . In a regional disa.ster such as an oil spill, Berkeley would normally report to the Alametla County Onrice of Emergency Services, which would then report to a regional command center. For the Cosco Busan spill, though, city olTlcials said they felt their concerns were better addre.ssed when they bypassed the counlv ofllce and communicated directly with the regional ofTice on Treasure Island. " We ' re always looking at the next level of government to communicate our needs, " said Berkeley Fire Department Assistant Chief Gil Dong. " Bul in this case) there is a lot of frustration in Berkeley ' s path.

On Nov. 8, ?(X)7, a tram-ilv rose from those mists, n heavy log, llanjin Shipping ' s 901 loot, 65,1 M Cosio Busan, en route from the Port of Oakland ' usan. South Korea, trashed into a pier of the Bridge ' s western span. While structural damage k- bridge was negligible, the hull of the ship and fuel tanks ruptured, spilling over S8,0()0 gallons eavv-dutv bunker luel oil into the San Francisco and wreaking havoc on the natural ecosystem. In tion, the Cosco Busan tore away a portion of the Icr protecting the bridge, causing S 1 .5 million of age. rhe accident was the first recordeil instance of rge oceangoing vessel colliding with the bridge, the resulting oil spill was the largest for the San icisco Bay in over a decade. The large oil spill to :1 the bay occurred in 1996, when a broken valve ed the Cape .Mohican ship to dump approximately KX) gallons of fuel into a floating dry dock. U the task of containing the spill, inallv believed to be just 140 gallons, was mpted by agencies and organizations including U.S. Coast Guard and Marine Spill Response p., waves smeared oil over local beaches, and llife ingested the contaminated waters. Over X) birds, including threatened marbled murrelets endangered brown pelicans, died as a result of the , w hich ultimately spread from San Mateo County ' oint Reves. Cleanup was not a trivial m.itter. costing over S60 million and reiju iring well over a week ol dedicateil I ' llort by special response units. When the Cosco, having received temporary repairs alter being detained in the Bay , rea for over a month, finally .set sail on Dec. 20, it left widespread controversy and a number of lawsuits in it.s wake. Coast Guard Captain William llberti, who served as the incident ' s first olllcial commander, was replaced after the agency came under public scrutiny for its lailure to address and disclose the magnitude of the problem in a timelv manner. Eventually, he decided to retire from the Coast Guard after 29 years of service. Captain John Cota, who was piloting the vessel at the time of the, had his license suspended by a unanimous vote of the state pilot commission. Such a suspension is rare, but so was the scale of the accident, .additionally, this was not the first time that Cota faced trouble. He had been before the commission on a number of prior occasions, as recently as 2006 when he was reprimanded alter the ship he was piloting ran aground in the San Joaquin River. On Nov. 30, the federal government filed suit against Cota and Regal Stone Ltd. of Hong Kong, which owns the Cosco Busan. In accordance with a U.S. Supreme Court decision made in the aftermath of the 1989 Exxon Valdcz oil spill in .Alaska ' s Prince William Sound, the purpose of the suit was obtaining compensation for the extensive cleanup efiorts neces.sitated by the misguidance of the ship. Other suits were filed by various parties ranging Irom crab fishermen to the city of San Francisco. On March 2 1 , Cnta pled not guilty to federal charges ol criminal negligence and violation of environmental laws. . Coast Guard preliminary investigation concluded that the decision to set sail in spite of fog «a.s the primary umlerlving reason lor the collision and oil spill. Other vessels scheduleil to depart on Nov. 7 had remained in port the morning of the incident due to the inclement weather comlitions. Cota claimed he did not received adequate warning from the Coast Guard regarding the heavy fog in the bay. , transcript released by the National Transportation Safety lioard indicated otherwise. Cota was advised of heavy log six times on the Coast Guard radio In-fore setting sail. Due to near-zero visibility, the ship was using charts, being read by Cota, to navigate the bay. Cota mist(K k the symbols for the bridge ' s towers to be openings. Cota later remarked, " Sorry, captain, I misread the chart. " In .April it became known that Cota had been convicted of drunk driving in 1999 and was on medication for depression, anxiety and sleep apnea. ( )n .April 2 2 , a federal grand jury incorporated March ' s misdemeanor charges into an indictment which added lelony counts of lying to the Coast Guard during exams that Cota took in January 2006 and January 2007 to reneyv his federal pilot ' s license. On May 9, Cota requested his criminal trial be transferred away from San Francisco because of " intense and harmful " news coverage of the incident in the Bay Area. At the time of publication, the pending cases were unresolved, and a request by defense attornev Jeflrev Bornstein for charges to be dismissed was expected to be considered on Julv IS, 2008.

Throw in countless the hundreds of curious students « ho gathered to watch the spectacle, and the once small protest came to attract attention from the entire campus for the better part of the afternoon. Eric Tompkins, a Bi-rkele freshman, helped organize the rally. " We were just kind of tired of the shenanigans here and we decided we y anted to tTcate an opposition, " he said. At the heart of the large crowd that formed in front of Dwindle and Schuck ' s tree were several vocal debates going on between supporters and detractors of the arboreal protester. As some held signs and continued • shout at the other side, more students continued to In attracted to the scene by the increasingly vocal ci ■ ■ i 1 an l television crews. Those protesting against Schuck cited the resources and lime his protest was taking awa (rom tlie university as reasons why he ought to stop. During his two weeks in the tree, police were stationetl around the tree during most hours during the dav, and police barricades were placed around its base to prevent from people from approaching. But those who supported Fresh maintained that it was his right to conduct an act of civil disobedience. When sudden rainfall forced most of the crowd to dis th Iv al ' te of the sperse m the earn alternoon, manv protesters against Fresh sought refuge under soiiu- nearby trees where ihev took turns airing their grievances with the tree-sitter in public. With the remaining students still huddled together talking about the protest. Fresh made a move that came as a surprise to everyone: he came down out of the tree. It happened suddenly, but In thi ' time people in the small crowd began pointing anti asking w hat the tree-sitter was doing, he had gathered his things and descended the tree to the sound of loud applause, directly into the hands of waiting police olHcers. Without warning, Fresh had decided to end his protest, or what he later called " an experiment in truth " UCI ' l) assistant .Mitch Cevia acknowledged afterward that alter hearing about the student counter protest bv word of mouth, Schuck had told the UCI ' l) beforehand that he would come down alter it w as over. .Mter being led away in handculFs, booked by campus police, and issued a one-week ban from the Berkeley campus, approximately 2 p.m. Upon emerging from the campus police services building, he was met bv a small group of students, supporters and journali-sts who ofTcred congratulations anil a barrage of questions. One student asked what Schuck thought o( llu- days ' events and the protest against his presence mi campus. " Today there was supposed to be a realK negative rally, and in.stead it turned into somelhiii ' j iieautiful, " he replied. Some students and supporters who attempleil In give the protester water during a .March 9 ralK to support the protester were arrested for disobeying police orders not to provide him with aid. .As one student said to Schuck alter his descent, " We didn ' t have a problem with you, but with the way you were getting your message out. " One common criticism of Berkeley ' s most infamous arboreal protester was that nobody was sure exactly what he was protesting. Foremost seemed to be his call to " democTatize the UC regents, " as a prominent sign of his that precluded his presence in the tree outside Dwinelle Hall said. But many other issues became talking points lor Fresh during the course of his protest, including university involvement in nuclear research, the BP energy deal. Schuck said aftenvard that he felt he ' d been successful in starting a dialogue on campus about some of the i.ssues he wanted to bring attention to. 42 features What are your thoughts on the organized student demonstration against the tree-sitter? Hf has a right to protest, but there ' s probably a way more eHectiye than this. Nobody wants to spend more money on police. I think that ' s what it really I just tame here to yatch, and 1 think most other people just came to see the comes down to. I think |thc tree-sitter and his supporters) want the solution to chaos. The people who organized the protest aren ' t arguing oyer the issues, just a bigger issue, and it shows that they want to ha r ,i better system to deal with oyer the lact that he ' s in the tree. these kinds of problems. ■ Laura Cowell, Freshman - Lilv Ann I ' .igi , MipiKuiKirt .

Dance Marathon is much more than a t pical fundraiser, though.

This vear, participants were treated to Dance Marathon: World Premiere, where they entered on a red carpet into a lavishly decorated Paulev Ballroom. There, thev were met with a " concessions stand " featuring popcorn, sandwiches, veggies, unlimited drinks and in the carlv hours of the morning.

Furthermore, Jake Glaser, son of Foundation namesake Elisabeth Glaser, gave a moving speech inspiring dancers to remain on their feet and continue in the light to eradicate pediatric AIDS. This vear, participants raised about S 20,000 for the Foundation, making the three-year total for Berkeley ' s Dance Marathon close to 5 57,000. It takes a very dedicated committee to put on Dance Marathon, since each sub-committee has to plan for enough entertainment, ffK)d, activities and prizes for 12 hours worth of education and fun. Plus, the committee has to plan it so that it is entertaining enough to reward people for their fundraising efforts. Despite having to stay up lor 27 hours the day of the event (including extensive set-up, event stafTmg and clean-up), it was an incredibly worthwhile event for both its planners and attendees.

How often is one n the opportunity to meet and greet with the founder of Apple, Int.? It was on this night that would not only get to hear " The Woz " ' s firsthand nunt ol how he and Steve Jobs helped launched PC industry but also several other personal edotes that colored his childhood. Hosted b the . SUC Speaker Scries on . pril in the Haas Business School ' s .Arthur .Andersen Jitorium, Steve Wozniak addressed a packed »v l ol over ?(X) students, faculty, stall, and nmunitv members. In its inaugural vear, the aker Series was created to allow students the Mirtunitv to " meet w ith and learn Irom prominent ires in society. " With such a goal in mind, Steve zniak was the perfect candidate to share his life ' s leaxors and accomplishnunis with voung aspiring ividuals like he himself once was. " We felt, considering that he was a Berkeley mnus, that he would symbolize the greatness Berkeley puts out, " said freshman Rohan Waglc, an .ASUC intern who helped organize the event. " For such a big science and engineering power like this university, we felt he would be an ideal choice. " Wozniak told stories of his younger years growing up in nearby Sunnyvale anti how he led his constant fascination w ith gadgetry bv assembling and disassembling two-way radios to plav with among friends. As a prank- playing misfit from the start, he was know n to do all that he could to plav the loveable jokester role - Irom his " dial a joke " hotline to his college days of fidgeting with the common room ' s color television set. He also rellected back upon his time as a LIC Berkeley electrical engineering and computer science student during the Vietnam War. .Although VS ' ozniak was set on staving a " middle-ol the-road, feet on the ground " engineer, he was intrigued by the counter culture of the 1960s and admireil the era ' s Iree thinking altitude. Following his i ne-hour lecture, Wozniak engaged in a questionandanswer session w ith the audience. He addressed inquiries about the lamous home garage that started it all. origins of the .Apple name, and recommendations lt)r aspiring innovators and entrepreneurs. " He didn ' t really talk about the corporation but rather himself. I thought it was really good, " said freshman Jade Pham. He made it a point to let young people know that he found it important for large companies to .seek out the smaller individuals among their many and allow them to have creative liberties in their endea ors. This, he explained, is how innovations arise. " Do what ou can; it ' s a step forward that will get you onti the next step, " he advised.

Guitar Hero, and chess are more male lomi- nated forms of recreation, we show that girls are just as capable in those areas. lri ia is hard w ork We have had to write movie, pop culture, sports, and general trivia questions. This takes a lot ol lact check- ing to make sure people do not object to our answers. Not to mention avoiding questions and topics we covered at the prc ious trivia nights. Deciding which questions to ask is also a ditVicult process, thev can ' t be too easv or too hard and sometimes heads can butt . live it Wc don ' t just put on games for other people, we love plaving them too. It ' s not uncommon to see us plav- ing Cranium, drumming on R Kk Baml, or wondering w hat questions we can come up w ith for the movie we are Hatching. That ' s whv we do this, we want to share what we love with others. SUPERB = support It ' s great «hrn iitlur departments come out to our events to plav and help out.

The bright, cheery colors and the presence of a children ' s choir on stage in the role of stars kept the perlormance pleasantly airy through any darker tones. There were quite a lew humorous Courtelv Peftf Dt " ! . ' moments in the script, including a group pl rambunctious baobab trees and an amusingly logiul king. The character of the Little Prince himself, Jt first rather mysterious and eventually insightlul, captivated the audience.

With a pleasantly diverse program classics like Schubert ami Shostakovich were interspersed with more modern pieces like Astor Piazzolla ' s Le (irand Tango to delight all audiences, a Stradivarius, and the acclaimed British pianist Kathryn Stott to accompany him, Ma couki not make the show more promising.

Students lake a series ol courses that prepare them to teach math and science to diverse learners in urban schools. These courses include titles such as " Seminar for Teaching Math in Schools, " " Engineering and Project Based learning, " and " Introduction to Environmental Education. " Thev all address the critical issues of equity and diversity in the classroom, particularly because the success rate of low-income and minority students in math and science has been loyy. One of the highlights of the Cal Teach program is that the students are olTered the opportunity to work with mentor teachers in local elementary, middle and high schools. The purpose of these Held placements is to olTer the students as much classroom and leaching experience as possible so that thev yvill be better prepared when they have their oyvn classrooms. Cal Teach students comment that the classroom experiences enhance their lives as thev realize " what a jov it is to interact with students on a one-on-one basis and to see them progress in their studies on top of everything else going on in their lives. " These experiences also bring " a deeper sense of purpose and meaning to teaching " for many students. Cal Teach Mentor teachers represent the best and most diverse group of teachers working in our local urban, elementary, middle and high schools. These teachers oiler to share not only their knowledge and experience of teaching math and science and their love of teaching with the CalTeach students but most importantly their students. CalTeach students spend one to two hours a week in their classroom observing, a.ssisting the students, and ultimately teaching math or science lessons. The mentor teachers realK value the extra help and insight the Cal Teach students bring to their classrooms. Ihey also appreciate vxliat | ositi e rol models the CalTeach students are for their student , many of whom do not ha i- lamilv members whi ■ ha e gone to college. The Cal Teach students take seriously thi important role of helping to create a college goitiL! mentality in many local classrooms and enj(i an.swering the .student ' s questions about college lii which range from, " How hard do vou have to study in college? " to " Is the dorm food reallv that bad. ' " Mentor teachers and Cal Teach students al share with each other outside the classroom through contributions to the Cal Teach Newsletter and professional development workshops. During the summer Cal Teach students and local middU and high school teachers have a chance to work together at the Lawrence Berkeley National I ali This experience oilers the students the c)pportunit to incorporate research in mathematics and science- into their work as teachers. It also allows them to widen their professional viewpoint of themselves av mathematicians and scientists. CalTeach makes a financial commitment to thcM future teachers as well In ollering them a stipend lor their work in the local classrooms and paying lor ihi required tests they need to take to become teachers The growth of the Cal Teach program inclu les thr development of an intern credential program whiili promises to support new teachers financially and with continuetl professional growth and learning opportunities. Cal Teach is part of a system-wide initiative. California Teach Science and .Math Initiative, whose goal is often referred to in terms ol the numbers ol students and teachers it hopes to have involved: One Thousand Teachers, One Million .Min ls.

It ' l until the- bc-ginninij ol mv third vc-ar that 1 saw a llxc-r in Mulford advertising a bcautilul summer retreat In the Sierra Nevada Mountains, an oasis, ilvou will; a place to studv nature and the forest firsthand. Intrigued bv the possibility, I went in search ol more information. I learned that the summer I ha l read about was Forestry Camp, an eight-week summer session in which students reside in the woods near the small town of Quincv on the Feather River. I knew im mediateK that I had to applv. What better wav to broaden m scholastic work at UC Berkelev than to go to Forestry Camp? It would be a lun experience and would allow me to learn about the environment while actually being in the environment, something I had noticed professors often overlooked. I arrived at Camp earlv after a long, vet gor- geous drive into the Sierras along the Feather River. The countryside was beautiful, and while I was nervous about dedicating eight whole weeks of my lite to this endeavor, I knew I could make it through. .After claiming a room and meeting mv roommate for the summer, I attempted to mingle with some of my fellow campers at the fire circle, which went well, although I soon became known around camp as ' The English Major " who was seri- ously addicted to crosswords. Then came the moment of truth: our intro- duction to the Camp by our first professor, Joe .McBride. and the camp manager, Jim. I ' ll never forget the greeting we received. .Mter hearing Joe speak of all we would learn, I was excited and enthusiastic. Everything we were to study sounded interesting and new as we would be able to see it all lor ourselves, not just out of a book. However, this was not to last. Jim soon took the stage and while many of his comments were simply rules of the Camp and seemed to largely consist of common sense, there was one section that is torexer ingrained in mv hea l: a two-hour lecture on the myriad of ways we could all die at camp. I kid you not. .As Jim proceeded to explain who had previously contracted what disease at Camp in what year and how many bear, mountain lion, and cougar sightings were reported in the area, I could only think to myself, " Oh mv God! What have 1 gotten myself into?! I neetl to leave now while I still have all mv limbs and can breathe without a tube! " I think you must all know what happened. I staved at Camp and survived the eight weeks none the worse. In lad. 1 can quite easily say that lor estrv Camp was one of mv best experiences at col- lege. Over the course of my stay I met and became friends with all tortv nine ol mv lellow campers and learned about Sierra Nevada ecology, silvicul lure, torest management, anil the importance ol properK harvesting a forest. I went to Forestry Camp hoping to have a fun summer and learn a little about the environment lirsthand and came out mui h richer than I had cmt hoped. It would be impossible lor me to speak lor every person who altendetl Camp, but I will sav, lor mvsell, this was one experience I trul loxed and will lorever remember. ■ ' 70 acoaernics .

The turnout was tremendous, and Irom this success the concept ol a speaker se ries was lH)rn . The ASUC Speaker Scries is a new project started in the 2007 2008 academic year by the Academic Al- lairs Vice President ' s OlFice in which current poli ticians, entrepreneurs, scientists, and other leaders in their resjH-ctive fields are invited to speak at UC B« rkelcv. Our belief was that at the premier public university in the nation, all students should have the opportunity to meet, learn, and interact with promi- nent figures in various realms of society, and this is what we have set out to accomplish. The lono process of bringing speakers to campus began carlv during the academic year. Initially, it was slow and tedious and the duration of the fall semes- ter was spent deciding which potential speakers to invite, finding their contact information, sending invitations, and focusing on finding the best way to contact potential speakers. Vet speakers were either unavailable or hesitant to confirm. Finally, in late De cember, we received word that former U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Mike Gravel xvas interested in coming to campus. We worked with the Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) and Pro- fessor .Man Ross to coordinate the senator ' s visit on campus, arranging for him to attend Prolcssor Ross ' Political Science 179 class and to host a reception af- terwards. These plans led to the first Speaker Series event of the vear. On Feb. 6, nearly one hundred people came out to meet Senator Gravel at the reception held for him in the IGS Library. The turnout was tremendous, con- sidering that the IGS stalTlold us events of this scope usually had a turnout of 20-50 students at best. The event was an informal question-and-answcr session in w hich guests posed questions to Gravel regarding both his campaign ami politics in general. Gravel pr ) ed to bi ' in engaging speaker with interesting viewpoints on nian topics. He was quite humorous and was able to make e en his skeptics laugh. People could not stop speaking to Senator Graxel. lter the reception yyas olTiciallv o er. guests contin- II, l to ask questions and loUowed him out the di or so ihev could take photos with him. Gravel was very pleased with his reception and the interaction he hail with Berkeley students. Students, too, were excited to have met such an interesting presidential candi- date. The event had been a success, and Speaker Sc- ries was on a roll. Our second event, in late February, was a recep tion for the candidates running lor the Berkeley seat in the California .Assembly. .Ml four candidates, Tonx Thurmond, Kri.ssWorthington, Dr. Phil PolakolV, ami Nancy Skinner were on campus to debate election is sues in Professor Ross ' class and as such we lound the perfect opportunity for students to interact with them in a smaller, more intimate setting. The recep tion was held in the IGS Library, and students relateil that thev were pleased to have been able to speak with the political candidates on issues affecting th« local community. The shining moment of the Speaker Series hap pened in . pril, yvhen . pple co-founder and Cal alumnus Steve Wozniak spoke to students on a topic he termed, " From Computer Geek to Cult Icon. " We were verv excited for this event because it showed that bringing famous speakers to campus is possible. Students yvcre pleased with the event, and the turn- out yvas far more than the seats available in the . n dersen . uditorium at the Haas School ol Business. .Mso in .■Kpril was an informal question-and-an- syver session with .Mberl Ghit)rso. a distinguished nuclear scientist who both yvorked on the .Manhat- tan Project and co-discovered I 3 periodic elements. Through this event, yve hoped to give science and non-science students alike the opportunity to learn about tlie history of such exciting modern day scien- tific discoveries. Lastly, we yvould like to thank e er one who helped make our events possible, particularly the Institute of Governmental Stuilies, Berkeley tngi- neering, and the administration ol the Haas School ol Business. The suppt rt we received from these groups was instrumental to the success ol our events and, w ithout their help, Speaker Scries may not have been possible. We also yvould like to thank all the studenU who attend and support our events; y ith your help, yve hope- to continue the .ASUC Speaker Series lor many years to come. 73 csuc speote ' senes all things cognition Story by Krisfie Wood and Erica Johnson it vour svnapM-s firing as vou learn what a svnapsc is!

Together, Kristie and Erica formed the design ol what is now one of the most popular student -led courses on cam- pus. Adventures in Neuroscience. With each semes- ter ' s waitlist and enrollment reaching well over 100 students. Erica and Kristie have satiated the once ta- boo desires of students to feel dead brains and tapped into their incurable appetite to learn about all things cognition - from learning and neurogenesis to dreams ami phantom limbs. Every Monday lor two hours, students share what thev have learned about the latest neuroscience in the news, debate on a wealth of controversial neuro-top ics, play neuro-trivia, hear Irom a leading experts in the field, or experience a lecture from Kristie or Er- ica. Students acquire the jargon and understanding of a scientist, paired with the capability and aptitude to communicate seemingly esoteric neuroscience con- cepts to even their grandmothers.

There are some assumptions that DECal classes arc not real academic courses, and it is possible to not be taken seriously by the students in your class. Grading is always the major issue that concerns the students. .Ml DECal classes are pass no pass, and it is very dilTicult to have to come to the de btory Dy btella Kim cisi on to not pass someone, even when class require ments were not met. That is especially true when you are on a student-to-student level, despite the struc- ture l the class where one gives the grades and one receives them. Just one mori- lliiiii; •-onutiines makes me question mv own validity is when people fall asleep as I ' m lecturing. That is really discourag- ing when you ' re so excited about a topic and want to share it, hut it is evident that some people are not enjoying how you ' re presenting it. Then you have to think ol new ways to make something like the North Korean economic changes really strike a chonl and be relevant to the students. .Although facilitating this DECal has taken up most ol the time I am awake during the day, it has been empowering and so rewarding. Once vou develop that thick skin and learn how to sav " no, " and create a rapport w ith students in which you are somewhat respected as their instructor, then things really come together, not exactly .seamlessU, but ne ertheless it does work out. .At the end of the semester, I really do enjoy how teaching the DECal has been incorporated into niv lite and ni memories. developing your own opinion the Borat DECal analyzed the work of Sacha Baron Cohen in the context of social inter- actions. The iilea lor this DECal began when a few .Mi G fans asked themselves, " This is hilarious! But why?

" We wanted the students to see the relexance of our analysis to real-life, espe- Story by Chen Lu ciallv on the topic of prejudice, " said course faciliator Dean Nehama. In this analysis, the course focused attention on primary constructs of society such as politics, social and economic division, cultural be- havior and societal norms. Bv establishing a thorough understanding of Cohen ' s work, students were ex- pected to contemplate why the material was funny, if it should have been funny, and whether it ultimately exposed or promoted prejudice in its viewers. 76 academics poetry professionals Story by Rhae Lynn Barnes this course in contcmporarv American poetrv and literary journals is a professional ie el course in the business of publishing the Berke- ley Poetry Reyicu- (BPK), which is nationally recognized as the preeminent undergraduate poetry journal ami is distributed internationally.

Sound like- the JHginning to a murder mystery? It ' s ailually eieryone ' s impression of our last home game against USC on Nov. 10,2007. I was amhivalent al out going. Everything outside was a wet hluish-gray color, save for the sparse bright hue ol the occasional umbrella. Luckily I knew my knee-high, bright pink rainboots would serve me well, so I trudged outside wearing the boots, two sweaters, a scarf, and a beanie that looks like Curious George. The first obstacle was getting to the stadium. I ' ve never seen so many people, and the p inch( imlustry surely made a fortune that day. I felt st)rry for the people who had to wear red ponchos Ix-cause everyone was lrunkenlv shouting at them.

Clutching my sopping wet notebook just to look official, I ewntually foun«l the Blue Gold photographer and tagged along, marveling at the atmosphere. If vou ' ve ever plaved any of the Madden fcxttball video games, and you .set the weather to " rain at night, " that is exactiv what it felt like to Ix- in the stadium. It was surn-al.

Even though we lost, there wen- thousands of Cal fans w ho came out to Memorial Stadium in pouring rain and freezing cold, risking pneumonia, to watch a gann- that we knew might not go imr way. After such a turbulent season, it was heartwarming (and trust me, I was l(M king for anv kind of warmth I could get out on that field) to see Cal f M tball loyalty at its best.

Not only do we hold regular lessons in Hearst, we i Irequenl many on-campus events held bv other dent groups and fraternities, where we are often in- ed to teach sixial dance cla.sscs on venue, or pertbrm Iroom demos. iMost ot our demo dancers anil social I ichers are top level Bay Area amateur competitive I uxTs who never tail to ilaz lc and astound audieni es and students nspeitivelv. Ivenls we ' ve perlormed at in llu past mcluile the .ASUC Dance Marathon, C ' al mentor program events at local sihools, ,MV ' iharitv events, as well as many others. .Ml in all, we try to make ourselves a strong in the communilv, makiii.; ballroom ilaniing available in all Inrms to anvoni who an interest. In addition to our partii ipatimi In loial (-vents, lierkelev ballroom Darners also org, ni es ami hosts two larger events each year right here on the berkelev Campus. In the tall we have our annual Dance Camp, a day ol intensive dance training primarily lor our mem bers, but also opin to the general publii, wherein |)ro lessional coaches are invited on campus to teaih us the finer details of the ten international Ballroom and I atin dances. In the spring we holil our main event ol the year, the Berkeley Classic Ballroom Competition I his year the Birkeley Classic was held on I-ebruar 2 i in Pauley Ballroom, and was attended by over 200 com petitors from all over the Bav . rea, including many ol our own members. It was a lantastic all dav event wilJi not only competitive events tor ballroom dancers ot all styles, but also our own dose ol crazv Berkeley spirit as we belli competitive tun liances open to compititors anil spectators alike, as well as vvackv team matches, all ot this interspersed with much sih iai dancing where cv- ervone in the room mingled and got to know each other through the medium of dance. We then wrapped up tin day with a showcase bv professional ballroom daim i Thomas .■Ktkocexicious and Mra BubneKti-, whiih kit everyone in awe and wonder (no, we still haven t tig ured out how lliev move like that cither).

He microwaved haton. hiati-d a white .sauce of corn starch and milk, and boiled the water in the microwave to cook the dumplinijs. The results were astounding. It was an incredible beijinning lor the Cooking Club, and it left us with manv volunteers to help organize our club ' s biggest event, the Cal vs. Stanford Iron chef Cook-OIT. The Golden Bears won thi- first Cleaver from the Cardinal last vear, anil the Cardinal was eager to take it back. .■Xs it turned out, howe er, the Stanloril Cooking Club, being Irom the weaker campus, was not quite up to the challenge ol staging the event, as Cal had done the first time But graciouslv, the Golden Bears stepped up to the plate and ortered to re host the competition, merelv asking Stanlonl be kind enough to show up. .And so despite ha ing everv thing from TV crew s to judges to balloons to rallies readv for the earlv December match in I ' aulev Ballroom, the lackluster Cardinal soiled themselves again. Two weeks before tile competition the Stanford Cooking Club pulled out, explaining that their |iarent-sponsor organization, Stanlord Dining, was unpreparetl to send them to back lo Berkelev. This absurd and embarrassing turn ol events onlv led to aiiotlur liollnw Stanlord promise: thev would host the competition in the Spring. .Mter months ol inexplicable postponements, the Cardinal raised its napkin and surrendered without a fight. lortunatelv, the Cal Cooking Club survived this debaile unscathed, enjoving its bedrock lineup ol Restaurant and Home Clinics, including demonstrations at ene ia, (. harles Chocolates, and TukTukThai .Market, including a Basic Skills Clinic, Dessert Clinic, and a special Brownie Clinii on .■ pril 20. What ' s more, the Cal Cooking ClubTeam, which included Crislina, Maria Zizka, .Maggie Crawford, Kieran DulTv, and me, took fourth place in the annual Crabby Chef Competition at SpengrrI Pish Grotto.

And such is the Cal Cooking Club: Membership open to the general public at S 10 per year and $25 fc life. We work with Bay . rea restaurants to bring d culinary arts to Berkelev students.

But four ambitious Berkeley students took on that task in Spring 1999. En isionint; a day where poyerty and homelessness are things of the past, these four students registered a Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter at the LIniyer sit ol Calilornia, Berkeley. Since then, the club (novy commonly referred to as Cal Habitat) has grown to oyer ?00 members and is on its way to completing a full sponsorship ol a Habitat home in Oakland. Members hayc built frames, torn down rotten solTets, dug ditches, sold hotdogs, and washed cars all in an elTort to make owning a home an alVordable option to low income families in the Bay Area. . luck few haye also participated in Collegiate Challenge ami Global Village, programs that grant students opportunities to build in countries .such as ..imbia. New Zealand, New Orleans (three times), 1 Liwaii, and Honduras. Each weekend, eager members attend construc- tion workdays, serye at soup kitchens, participate in restorations, and fundraise money at lootball and basketball concessions. Bv the end of the 2007- 2008 school year, Cal Habitat members will haye yol- unteercd over 4,000 hours of their time at these eyents and raised more than S 1 5,000, which does not include a S 10,000 matching grant from State Farm Insurance. .■ nd w hat happens on a workday, you ma ask.

Ol course, that also means experience isn required to volunteer with Habitat. the end oft! day, it ' s not uncommon to come trawling home . sweaty, exhausted, and craving for more. But as glorious as it may seem to abuse a jackhjii mer, the absolutely best and most fulfilling part nl construction workday is having the opporlunltx build alongside a future Habitat homeowner. Seeii a single mother of three ' s eves light up as her kitihi walls are painted really drives home the impact a te caring people can have on this world. Indeed, it what motivates many of the volunteers to conlini this important work. Recognizing the impcjrtance of education ai community outreach, Cal Habitat started an .Minn able Housing OeCal in which representatives Im housing organizations are invited to speak to a class 20-30 students. Hoping to further raise awareness i the Fall 2007. Since then, volunteers have diligent been seeking community partners who are engaged ■ aflordable housing issues. Th jse efforts have rei ent led to the establishment of a homelessness conlereni and petition drive. Over the years, Cal Habitat has become more tha a volunteer organization.

It was a lot of hard work, and we ' re all verv proud of how far we ' ve come. In March, we went on tour through North Carolina, where we visited Duke, North Caro- lina Slate University, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In North Carolina, the onlv thing bigger than a cappella is ba.sket ball, and we happened to be in town right in the midst of March .Madness! While in Tar-heel terrilorv, we saw and met the Grammy win- ing quartet The Manhattan Transfers and spoke personally with Alan Paul, one of the singers. Our trademark song this year was certainly our cover of Coolio ' s " Gangster ' s Paradise " that even won the appraisal of Coolio himself. When an alumna posted aYouTube video of us rehears- ing the song, we had no idea it would ever get back to the rapper himselF In a few weeks we re- ceived a video response from Cwlio applauding our rendition! Who knew Berkeley girls could rap? We sure didn ' t! We even incorporated the " gansta " theme into our intermission video lor our Spring Show. Highlights of this movie includ- ed ghost riding the PT Cruiser, a drive-by Nerf gun shooting, and way too many tin foil grills.

RiiTuiting was hard. That was usualh the lor most little-known organizations on campus, hidden b the big tents and the rainbow of fliers trom other larger student groups. But we tried anvvyay. Remember us anil the plastic blue and yellow Easter eggs with our little lli- crs strategically placed inside? No worries, sometimes then- was canth in there, tcx). We did have fun in-between all the work, tliough. Iliere was the dfxlge-ball tournament held by Kappa Gamma Delta. It was the Fj sterminators versus thi ' world on a dtxlge-ball court.

We did not win ever) ' game we plaved (well, we only won one game), but we lought hard ' til ihi- end everv time. There was our annual fall retreat. This year, the Eggsters ventured far south, into the quiet titv ol Seaside, Calif. The park was our first stop: Alter eating lunch on the Ix-nches, we plavc-d tag, rolled around in the gra.vs, and built egg capsules for our egg drop. Our egg was called Eggsavier, and due to the ingenuity of my team ' s engineering tactics and lots of straws, Eggsavier surviveil its tvvr -stor fall. We had gcxxl fcxxl, tfxj: homemade dinniT and plentv of snacks filled our tummies and made us hajipv. rill- rilreal was a lun, relaxing wav to l«)nd w idi the other Eggsters and to escape from Berkeley ' s gloomi- ness for one weekend.

We w ent everywhere in Berkeley, asking lor donations of all sorts. It is plea.santlv surprising how gen- erous people can be: We got gift certificates lor our raffle, a variety of fcxxi for the student volunteers, and most itnportantlv candy and pla.stic eggs for the egg hunts. We also distributed thousands of fliers to elementary schtxils all across the East Bav, and calleil up radio and cable sta- tions, a.sking il ihev would help us publicize the event. It was truly an amazing leat ol team eflort and determina lion that pulled all the event preparations together And pausi-: E-Oay This year marked Eggsters 14th year, and one of our biggest worries was the uncontrollable weather. Two years ago (my first year in Eggster), it rained for the first time ever during tile event day. year, it rained again. This year, the weather report on Wednesday night pre- dicted " storm thiuider " and 70° precipitation. We were certain tlial die Mr Sun forgot about us again. Neverthe- less, we kept .stuHing e s and drawing banners, madly making sure everv last detail was in place. We vyt)rked all Friilav night into Satunlav morning, nervously antidpat- ing the Ixsl part of the year and the Jruits ol our lalx)r March 15, 2008 was a sunny day; wc weren ' t cursi-d bv the weather go ls, alter all. The event was everything I could have imagined. Kids were having fun at every booth, learning alxiut dilVerent kinds of fa.shion through- out die centuries or how to make structures w ith marsh mallow s and toothpicks. Some kids were rushing aroural the fields, searching for eggs and stufiing them into their baskets. Some were plaving with the student volunteers and taking pictures with the Eggster Bunny. When die student groups performed, people gathered around to enjoy the performance. Si-eing the event come together made all die hard work throughout the year worth it. This was what Egg- ster is alx ut: Eggster brings people together, connecting students to the communitv and to children, and creates a day of candv-fillcd memories, learning, and fun. «rkomc l.. .r i.t«Kl.hil,tr.n.,n.llh.-,rla,,„l., i.,i cadM . rniiTtjiniiuni and innn- ikiii 40 l ' M ' orgjni t ' ti l)v over JOO rtudci Vl " P r.eht)1 , I j;j,M..r tr..m ..Icbralc » »Mr o( plmnini; r l4il,An I ggMir I jy-hunl I .Jriilng Fr.tiwl on .

EWH began in 2(X)1 with the vision ol Dr. Rob- I Maikin and Dr. Mohammad Kiani, then professors Memphis, Tennessee. .Appalled b ht spital condi- ns he encountered during his travels to Nicaragua, alkin set out to create a charitable organization that lulil harness the resources ol collegiate engineering ograms lor the improvement of conditions in hos- tals of developing nations. " For vears, we ' ve been inting to do more in service, " said .Walkin, " but ere was nothing available for biomedical engineers, e wanted to do it and the students wanted to do it. " kUv, Engineering World Health has bloomed into a tional organization » ith nianv university chapters Dund the country. Berkele " s EWH chapter was founded in . ugust X)7 to give studenls an opportunitv to utilize techni- skills for the benefit of hospitals in the developing irld. The groups mission and goals were received ith much enthusiasm bv a number of students. As result, the group grew rapidly and has continued expand. Just one semester alter its inception, the )up had attracted over 30 members and had assem id 50 electrosurgerv unit testers. Berkeley EWH hll t v m ral activities centered .iiituiiti Uh ' , 11.11 til t [i .i iii ' _ V jl s (.limit ti stutiiiit IxkK to improve developing vviirld healthiare. In or der to give students a better perspective on the unique needs and challenges ol healthcare providers in the developing world, the group regularlv invites guest speakers who have had the opportunity to addrev healthcare concerns in impoverished nations. It also seeks to give students the opportunitv to engage in the assembly of small medical devices that can Ik- sent to under-resourced hospitals. In addition, interested students are taken on tours of local hospitals so that they can better understand how their elYorts in build- ing devices are a part of a more dynamic scenario that encompasses device lunction, hospital management, and medical treatment. In Fall 2007, Berkeley EWH focused their assem blv ellor ts on electrosurgerv unit (ESU) testers. With the understanding that inelTicicnt testing and repair of ESUs in developing world hospitals often results in unsafe and inellective surgical procedures, the group assembled several low-cost ESU testers based on a de- sign from the national EWH organization. The build sessions for these ESU testers were valuable opportu- nities for students to apply their technical skills to real world settings. .As a result of the hard work of several dedicated members and olficers, 0 ESU testers were completed and sent to the national EWH organization for distribution in the developing world. Berkelev EWH is currently seeking corporate funding to sponsor the participation ol interested stu- dents in the EWH Summer Institute.

The first ever UC Rally Committee (UCRC) and Fashion and Student Trends (H.AST) fashion show was underway. The theme of the night: Berkeley Through the .Ages. The house was packed. Heller Center was the perfect location for such a diverse event, featuring not only skits by the Rally Committee and mixlels and clothing designs by H.-KST, but also many campus performance groups such as the .Men ' s Octet, Cal Jazz Choir, .Artists in Resonance, and TruElemcnt. " Bringing together such a diverse group of performers and types of performances was a great wav to celebrate Homecoming Week, " said members ol the UCRC subcommittee that had been instrumental in planning the fa.shion show. " Coordinating ail of the groups was a challenge, but in the end, it was a great «ay to show how student groups can come together to make a great event that none of them couUI have done individually. " The show was designed to showcase Berkeley ' s lashions decade b decade from the 1950s to present. Since Berkeley has been known for st)me pretty interesting getups, the idea inspired the F, ST designers to think outside of the box. For their designs. they could either begin from scratch or put together pieces they had already worked on. One designer, .Marva Gates, decided not onlv to design from scratch, but in honor of IU)mecoming, made each of her designs blue and gold. The audience ' s favorite was a retro blue and gold empire waist dress. Though the designs lor the previous decades were easy enough to figure out, finding and designing present day clothing was more difikult. Since the most typical outfit for a Cal student to wear these days is jeans and a Cal sweatshirt, FAST and the Rally Committee proposed featuring new Cal Student Store designs in the show. The Student Store happilv lent the groups nurcliandise and hande l out coupons at the event . With so many groups and campus entities involved, those directing the show had a lot on their minds as the lights dimmed and the l rst model took the stage Would the perlormers all arrive on time? Were all ol the outfits assigned to models? Were then ' enough people in the audience? As you looked from backstage, however, ami .saw the smiles on peo ple ' s faces as they watched tin weird and wacky to classy and elegant designs emergi- from behind the curtains, it was easy to realize thai the stress of planning an event with many dillerenl elements was worth it. In the end, bringing campus groups together to plan and execute campus-wide events draws more people to better shows. The goal with the fashion .show was to educate people on what Berkeley lashion was and is now. Through the help of all those that contributed, the event was a success. infl ' m ' A I tup. abovt ' . left) FAST models pul a nuKicrn spin on Btrkclcv (oshion.

Student Organization of the Year: Founded in Spring 2007, The Magnolia Proj- ect is a student-initiated organization dedicating " to spreading awareness, eilucating, and providing UC Berkeley ' s staft ' , students, and faculty with an avenue to both physically participate in the recon- struction process, and organize to tackle the polit- ical challenges the disenfranchised and underprivi- leged communities of New Orleans were facing. " In .Mav 2007, the group organized 86 student volunteers to spend three weeks in New Orleans, providing approximately 8,000 hours of service. While in the Cjull region, diev renovated damaged schools, gutted antl rebuilt houses, work at a local food bank, developed websites for lo- cal nonprofits and conducted community-based research for the local Head Start program. " This organization ' s summer service prt)ject is a critical aspect of student engagement in the Gulf Coast, as well as an eflective service learning program that not only educates the campus community, but also empowers them to recognize injustice and take initiative towards change. " After their initial service trip, the group re- turned to campus and coordinated a number ol educational event.s about the struggles Gulf Coast residents continue to face. These events included a Commemoration Event for the second .Anniver- sary of Hurricane Katrina, photo exhibits, and at least six campus-wide dialogues. Additionally, this organization has made a ten-year commitment to, aid the region in its rebuilding process. Congratu-i lations.

The club holds events such as design workshops, career information sessions, and at least one fashion show a year featuring student designers and student m xiels. Many students learn how to sew for the express purpose of designing for the show, and the club nurtures the learning environment that goes with this. The Spring 2008 Character Fashion Theatrics show brought in at least 400 attendees, and featured several experienced as well as first-lime drtigners.

Since iu reopening in 200 J, however, the Nu Chapter of TKE has reclaimed its home at 2725 Channing Way and opened its doors to many pledge classes. Tckcs have taken the Berkeley campus bv storm, claiming victories in Cal Greek Week, participated in joint philanthropic events with other Greek houses, and even having a regular clean-up of the campus Strawberry Creek.

While our first annual OtHlgeball rourna- mrnt was a highly ambitious experiment, its success greatly surpa.sse l our expectations. Nearly 200 participants I ' rom 24 teams gathered at the RSF Rold House Gym on April 27 to for the anxiously -awaited tournament. Non- Greek groups such as I ' svchology Undergrads i-om|Hteil alongside fraternity men- as well as the courageous women of .Mpha Chi Omega, the only all-female team to par- ticipate. The tournament served to foster c(M)pera- tion and unity among teammates, while te.sting the sportsmanship of competing teams as they aggres- sively pushed towards victory. In the end, Sigma Chi took home the first place trophy, closely trailed by Alpha Tau Omega in second place. In order to conilition the participants into skilled diMlgeball players, two members of our chapter were a.ssigned to coach each team . Though the tournament itscll was only three hours long, coaches spent the preceding weeks preparing their team - both physi- cally and mentally - for the competition ahead. Man coaches went above and beyond their delegated re- spon.sibilities by voluntarily organizing team prac- tices, packing | er«mal lunt hes, baking cujuakes, designing |M »ters or ireating l-aceb M k groups in support of their team. This fun, interactive opportu nity was an effecti r way for the women of our chap- ter to bond with the participating student groups on a more intimate level. Even our dedicated llou.s«- Man, Victor Olivas, joined the efl ' orl by recruiting and training a crew of referees.

Team Sigma Alpha Mu was the crowned champion of Mon- ey Wars, taking home a Foosball Table to commemo- rate their victory.

Mong with many of vou, I st xxl where our laniilies and Iriends are silting now, chanting " Go Bears " at the annual bonfire just belore the Big Game. That whole week, I was over helmed with Berkelev spirit, from hearinij the Cal Band rall through Unit i to watching " The Plav " during my usually-serious Cheml.X Icitunv Our fourth-ranked football team ignited a contagious Cal spirit that swept through mv bodv, and when I stood here four vears ago, 1 knew there was something special about Berkelev. Tixlav, for the first time, we sit at the Greek Theater not as audience members, but as graduates. Today, we are unified not for a concert or a rallv, or a football game, but as the UC Berkeley Class of 2008. Soon, we will be leaving Cal with our bachelor ' s degrees, and with that, a responsibilitv to improve the li es of those around us, and to continue striving for the great things we have begun. Some of us will work closelv w ith victims of natural disasters like the earthquake that struck China, or the cvclone that hit . J anmar, while others will find cures to modern health conditions such as obesitv that plague dexeloped countries. Others of us will be at the lorelront ol investigating climate change and alternative energy sources, or working within our communities to find peaceful solutions to global and local violence. As we move forward, we must take it upon ourselves to use what we have been given to address these challenges. Berkelev has prov ided us with the intellectual platform to excel in our professions, while simultaneously imbuing us with the spirit to care for our peers and our communities. 1 came to Berkeley from the " Irvine Bubble " a place of privilege, resour ces, and opportimities. I took the ability to pursue higher education for granted. I was naive, knowing very little about the world, or about myself. 1 was, and am still, humbled bv many of vou, who oxercame the odds to come to Cal, who worked through college to pav for your tuition, or who tirelessb promoted access to education in our local neighborhiMKls. Ik-ing amongst vou has diversified mv own learning and broadened mv knowledge. In the past few davs, I ' ve received mass emails and facebook messages from many of you, urging me to petition against the budget c-uts being made to East Asian Language Programs at Cal. I am proud to stand here with vou, because the genuine passion I sense from vou daily, mv fellow classmates, motivates me university medalist and infectious disease detecti Speech by Leslie St to support causes I ma nut have known alxiut belore, and inspires me to make contributions to our school and our community as you have. As I began working tow ard issues I grew passionate about, like disparities in access to health care or the orphan situation in China, I realized the alue and power of our interconnectedness; in order to make progress, we must rely upon others. Without the tremendous help and encouragement of many people, I wouldn ' t have imagined expanding services at free Hepatitis B clinics in San Francisco or mentoring Chinese teen adoptees in the Bay Area. 1 think people come into our lives for a reason - to teach us, to help us, to inspire us. We would not be where we are now w ithout our families, who showed us the importance of values and wisdom, our friends, who support us unconditionally, and our professors and advisors, who encourage us to push the boundaries of knowledge. Some people w ill be a part of our lives forever, and others we will never see again, vet all ol them helped shape who we are. We have been incredibly lortunate to be a part of Berkeley ' s vibrant community, which introduced us not just to lifelong friends, but also to lifelong pa.ssions. . s 1 recently heard from a doctor at UCSF, " There are 6.8 billion people in the world, and many ol them yvould love to be sitting where vou sit right now. " Finishing an undergraduate career at Berkeley is a great achievement, but it is also a privilege and an honor - as a Cal alum, you will hold a respected place in society no matter where you go. Regardless of where life takes you, 1 you to think ol those 6.8 billion people, and never lose sight ol the great opportunities you ' ve been handed. Today marks an exciting time: a time t o relied on the past, a time to embrace our futures, and most importantly, a time to .seize the moment. 1 have come a long way from being that disoriented girl who stood here four years ago. .And I ' ve realized that it ' s not just our football team that makes Cal a .special place. It is the intellectual curiosity and enthusiastic perseverance of our faculty, r)ur community, our lellow students and we graduates that unites us, drives us, and ranks us as the top public university in the world. I am ext ited lor what we will accomplish in our near and far lutures, and have no doubt that we will achieve great things. We all deserve to celebrate this momentous occasion, a time that we have worked so hard to reach. Revel in the moment and do not let it escape you. Congratulations, class of 2008.

The first time I slopped lo pinch my.sell nd ask " Is this really happening. ' " well, the irst time yas at LISC in 2004, hut I ' m trying 1) bitxk that memory out - yyas the night be- iirc C ' al tfKik on Tenne.ssee in Knoxyille, Tenn. •Around 1 ,000 Cal fans packed into a bar appro- iriateb named Calhouns along the Tennessee Riyer, II brought together across the country for a three- lour football game. I ye neyer been prouder to be a tudenl at Cal than I yyas that night. My friend Sam atsin and I started talking to one friendly alum, kho happene l to haye played on Cal ' s last Rose lowl team in 1959 and coincidentalK attended he same high school as Sam. He and his entourage 4 ught us drinks and made us insist to allow them II pick Us up the next day from our hotel. By the nd ol the day this couple yyas calling us their " good riends. ' and saved us about S50 worth of cab rides. The loxe did not stop there. I yas inTempe, .Ari ., oycring the Cal lootball team and had no ride to the ladium (or the game. Yes, I knoyy, I should learn to hink ahead and get my oyyn rides. But out of nmyhere I iiuiili iloruu d in Cal I ' l , r nHi nil lo . ' i i- im .i lift e en though they yyere ni t it ready lo head .inyw here near the stadium. That couple was ileli-nsiye end Ru Ion Dayis ' parents. We talked about our mutual Irus tration with the tree sitters. Loren o l)a is, his lather, tolil me all about Rulon ' s tour of dut y ith the Ma rines. We disi ussed yhat a ljustments Cal coai h Jelf ledlord should make along the ilelensi e line. We yere complete strangers, brought together In Cal football. Later that day, yhile wandering around .Arizona Stale w ith Sun Deyils fans ruthlessly heckling me, I finally spotted a group ol Cal fans tailgating. Hesitant and not yanting to impose, I asked if I could take reluge yith them until the game started. The moth- er of defensive tackle Matthew Malele - a complete stra nger - suddenly embraced me in a hug and told me lo eat as much as I could. She had tears in her eves w hen I told her I was graduating next semester. I stood there dumb lounded, not used to such immediate lo i from random Samoan women. 1 spent the en tire game trying to di gest approximately S75 yyorth of Hawaiian BBQ Celia .Malele even made me promise to stop b and eat with them before home games in the fu- ture, welcoming me into her rather large - lilcr- allv and figurativelv - ex- tended Samoan iamily. rllis llnsnit.llit .intl Iriendliness extends past just one day m the swrl tering heat ofTempe, .Ariz, ami one day in the gfMxl ol ' South, from engaging in a ten minute talk with a Cal alum in I ' timpeii, Italy about the potential for the Bears lootball team in the upcoming sea.s n, lo having Cal football mach JeflTe lfor l ask me about my lamilv when I spotted him in ihe Oakland .Air port en route to L is Angeles for the Jewish holi tlavs, I really feel like I am a part of one big family.

To all ol my Iriends (especially Kale Iran I): 1 love you with all of mv heart.

Senior Week, during uiiiih members of the graduating class held a series ol farewell activities, began in 1874 with a " class dav " before graduation and a farewell hancjuet in San 1 rancisco. Some of the common senitir week (unctions included a Senior Banquet, which is analogous to the current Blue Gold Dinner Cruise. For manv years alter the turn of the centurv, .senior men atten led a banquet at a hotel in San Francisco and senior women remained on the campus in Hearst Hall, «here the announcement of engagements was a high point ol the evening. On the morning before Commencement, the seniors of the Class of 1 874 met for a final pilgrimage about the campus. The Pilgrimage stopped at special landmarks to listen to speeches from class leaders and favorite lacultv members. This event is now replaced w ith campus tours during Senior Week. But Senior Week, as it was known, gradually died out during the 1960s and ended completely in 1970 because of anti-war demonstrations on campus. It ' t until 2001 when the Senior Class Council relumed Senior Week to UC Berkeley. Since 2001, Senior Week is a week of senior events during a week in . pril. From April 7 to 11, 2008, hundreds of seniors came to support Cal Habitat lor Humanity and LIMCEF at a Senior Week Kick-OIT BBQ, listened to a " last lecture " delivered bv a distinguished professor, watched a Giants baseball game at .AT T Park, enjoyed " Back to the Future " on Memorial Glade, painted and slid down the Big C, and satisfied their appetite lor Berkeley cuisine at the " Best of Berkeley " showcase.

Barbados sc-emed like the perfect Pit. After convincing my Air Force ROTC com- maniler and mv parents that this was actually a v und, rational idea, the months ol bureaucratic preparation began. Endless mounds of paperwork had to bi- filled out. Letters of rec jmnu-ndation were requested, . pplication alter application was completed. Medical records were dug up, vaccina- tions were administered, plane tickets were pur chased, and linallv on . ugust 21, 2007 I headed oO ' for what was to be the adventure of a lifetime. When the plane toucheil down at Grantley . d- ams International . irport in Barbados, I lelt a myriad of emotions - a little nervous, a little uncertain, but most of all, ver excited. .M ' ter meeting my fellow UC exchange students, we headed out to the taxis w here we encountered our first language barrier. NN ' e were suppos -d to go to a plaie called " Coral Lane .Apartments, " but our driver pronounced it " kora- leen, " and there was more than a little confusion about what was going on. VVe all evenluallv arrixed and got settled in to our respective homes, and alter attend- ing our " Freshers " orientation session and a moving matriculation ceremonv. mv semester at the Univer- sitv of the West Indies, Cave Hill, startetl in earnest. I signed up to take Fundamentals of Music, Fran- cophone Cultures, Caribbean Governance, and the Politics of Developing Nations. I was reallv curious to sec how different the academic environment would be in Barbados, and I was a bit surprised to discov- er that some of mv lectures onlv had 10 students in them. At times this was awkward, and at other limes I felt the small number allowed the teachers to re- allv connei.1 w ith their students. Neeilless to say, peo- ple were verv surprised when I told them the average Berkelev lecture has a few hundred students in it. Over the course of the next lew months 1 learned a lot in mv classes, ibout the greater Caribbean region, thecultureofthepi ' ■ that live there, the issuestifneo- colonialism, persiste. icial stratification, and eco- nomic dependency thai ...i v still have to grapple w ith. Story t Y KoiHenne Ko " : I got l€i ilitch school lor a lew ila s anil Msil the islanils of Dominica, St. Vincent, and liequia, which were resplendent with thick jungles, dramatic black sand In-aches, xolcanoes, and a mvsUrious vegetation known as " elfin woiHlland " that seemed straight out olTolkien. In l rbados I explored, trekked, and wan dereil the countrvside aimlessU till the soles o( m trustv Teva sandals wore through. Uilh my beloved guide himV. (discTcctly) in my backpack, I poked my head into the countrv ' s countless churches and rum shops (the equivalent of general stores), leasled regu larU on a local dish called mac pie, and consumeil mass quantities of .Angostura Lemon Lime anil Bit ters. 1 blared the reggae on mv railio and regularlv rode around in a cra y thing called a R. whiih is a taxi van whose drivers blast Soca music and in sist on having their vehicles defy the laws ol plivs ics. I lounged on manv a pristine beach, went surl ing, horseback rilling, anil even trespassed through so me cow pastures to get to the non-touristy sites. Essentiallv, bv the end of my too-short lour months there, Barbados had become mv second home. During mv final semester here at Cal, I ' ve spent a lol of time thinking back about Barbados and analyz- ing how different evervthing w as there. But now, with a month and a half left of my undergraduate career, it ' s dawned on me that college students all over the vvorlil are probablv more similar than diflerent. In my classes I was a little worried about being perceived as an outsider, not just because of my nationality, but be- cause the color of mv skin made me look so very con spicuous. But a lew weeks into the semester I became oblivious to the race i.ssue, and I was pleasantly sur prised when I ran for the ofllce of representative and was elected to that post bv mv lellovv students. And that ' s when 1 realized it: regardless of our race, ethnicitv, or nationalitv, we all stress over finals. we contend with greasv cafeteria lood, we turn in our work tvvn minutes before it ' s due, and we study our hearts out in the hope that a degree will get us further in life, wherever we mav live. When I played on UWI ' s football (soccer) team, the downtrodden looks on our girls ' faces when we lost were the same looks mv fellow .Air Force cadets have whenever we lose sports games here in Berkeley. As cliche as it sounds, the thrill of victory and the agony of de feat are universal. The jov ol discovering something new, of being enlightened by brilliant professors and passionate fellow students, of being accepted into a culture diflerent than vour own - these leel ings arc recognizable in anv part of the world. It is these similarities, rather than our differences, that we should locus on when studving or traveling abroad. If onlv our world leaders could realize as much. ijiKer.fie K y (liip 111 iHiitiim | V hilc luclying ahnuii in Bjrlwdm, K.-nuir Kithrr Kiiniciki «cnl morkciing, joinii) i (ixilbJi (soccer) Icim. !« • 1(1 thr island of Dominica, and attended cUm (of coune). 278 Adricniic At.irios S.iiu ho iilun .imfrtain luJiet Jennifer Sanilcrji hilt-tjinif ' hiuifi f iflil tijthfi Ujyti Udny S.indhu Au ' iru ' Li ditni ' i ti jri, ' f.

IVderson, who taught me OChem ?.- and 5B, wanted us lo ask bigger questions. He didn ' t want us to see a can ol soda as just water, sugar, anil IV ling bubbles, fie wants us to understand whv e.ich molecule is there. He hopes thai we ijuestion the potential reactions that will ociur when the sugar, lor example, encounters our stomach acid. " .Ask how the bubbles got there, " he said. Ask whv this type of sugar and not that type ot sugar was used. Keep asking questions, . LVV ' . YSI .• sking the right questions, anil possessing an intrinsic motivation to tlnd the answers is an invaluable lool w ill help us in all parts of our lives. Like all ol the Berkelev Hacuitv, Prot. Pederson pushed us to strive for more. MCB gave us an eye for detail, but with the broailer Berkelev education that we have received, we also have a know ledge and understanding that is more encompassing and holistic. We are about to step into our communities, for some of us that coulil mean only a tew miles av ay, lor others of us that could mean thousands of miles away, in another state or even in another countrv.VV ' here e er we go, we have one thing in common. That ' s our MCB degree. I believe our Berkeley education vill lead us erv far in li fe if we keep asking the right questions. Parents! You must be asking voursell: " This kid, in his letter, only thanked his friends, advisors, anil professors. Isn ' t he forgetting s imeone. ' " Well, Parents, I saved the best for The most IMPORT.WT , and the most SKiNII ICANT pt-ople wIiom- name should Ix- present next lo our name on the diploma, would be YOll (JUYS I think our diplomas can ust- a small makeover. I think the title .Mom and Dad should appear at thi- bottom with Chancellor anil Governor signatures. Ciraduating friends, my parents, like most ol your parents, have always been there through the giKxl times and bad times; the confusing times; the sillv times; the lie Bi-rkeley is so damn hard limes; the changing major for the 3rd time; the problem with the hoasing manager time; the mv roommate is too cra v and I want to throw something at him time, and now at this very instant, this moment, THIS TI.ME, ihey are still with us at our fmest time. The time of our graduation. We should take more than just a moment to thank our entire family: our parents, grandparents, siblings and other lamilv members who have proviiled w much emotional and financial support lor us to get to where we are todav. We did not do this alone. Maybe we shoultl congratulate them and pal them on the hack. .Again, on behalf the MCB of 2008, .My greatest Thank vou to Professors, .Advisors, Family members, and .Ml that is UC Berkelev, for a wonderful and truly memorable time.
