To all you newly admitted students and proud friends and family members, welcome. UC Berkeley is your university. Here, the greatest heights of academia are raised even higher by the marvels of human ingenuity that every incoming class of freshmen and transfer students bring with them.
While UC Berkeley is a campus of more than 36,000 voices, you will learn very quickly that the campus provides many channels for you to make yours heard. This issue of The Daily Californian presents a small segment of those voices — visions of the future of the University of California, reassuring words to parents wary about leaving their children in a sometimes controversial city and a wide array of opinions on the best of everything the campus and city have to offer.
Enjoy Cal Day, and take some time to start making UC Berkeley yours.
