What type of Birkenstock are you?

Needless to say, Birkenstocks are a gift from the foot gods. If you’re lazy, Birkenstocks are great because you don’t have to fasten any buckles or tie and laces. If you’re walking from the Units to Tolman Hall, Birkenstocks are as comfortable as can be. The one thing we can’t attest for

Hello from the other side of Sproul Plaza

We’ve all been there — the walk to class, the walk into class and, often the most treacherous, the walk home from class. Despite the fact that we all attend a major public university with just under 40,000 students, it seems almost impossible to stroll to class without encountering at

Your meme-fied ode to midterms

As everyone knows, great artists have to suffer great pain to produce some of their greatest works. Thus, because we at the Clog are on our midterms deathbed, we created possibly the best poem of our artistic career. We combined two of our great muses, midterms and memes, to craft

Coincidences when you sit next to someone new

We’ve all been there. You show up later than usual to lecture, and thus face the dilemma of having to sit somewhere other than your go-to spot. Perhaps you’re even forced to sit next to someone new. That’s quite the conundrum indeed. But it isn’t all bad — in fact, you

Dear Berkeley: How was your semester?

Another semester has come and gone. For some, it may have gone too fast, while others may be glad it’s over. As you wave goodbye to spring 2015, we at the Clog wanted to hear your parting thoughts. We interviewed some of our fellow Golden Bears and asked one simple
