Editor’s Note

The new school year always marks transitions, whether you’re a baby freshman Bear, a junior transfer student or finally a senior. Those of you new to UC Berkeley are probably filled with excitement, anticipation and anxious nerves.

As the first week of a new year draws to a close, we at the Daily Cal took the time to reflect on what our journey thus far has meant for us. We give you tips on some of the best, and some not so great, places to grab a cheap bite, reminders that it’s okay to be confused, and some tips on forming strong relationships while you’re at Cal. So read on, and roll on, you Bears.
