Despite a frustrating start to the football season, all is not lost for Cal.
This Homecoming has a lot to offer besides a Saturday evening matchup with UCLA. Players and fans alike have a glowing stadium to call home; Cal boasts a superstar wide receiver and first-round NFL projection; and not to mention, Berkeley’s surrounding businesses will undoubtedly flourish with the return of Memorial Stadium.
Last year, during the renovation of Memorial Stadium, it was back to the blueprints for the university and the football program.
But the wait is finally over, and this homecoming issue celebrates what students and Old Blues are all proud to call a new home.
After a face lift at Memorial, the city’s renewal continues to keep us all in good spirits and hopes for a miracle turnaround to the football season.
So peruse these pages for information and inspriation. We’d like this issue to offer a look at our home in depth and to invite the Golden Bears to come back to blueprints.
