You’ve probably asked yourself the question many times. Which Hogwarts house do you belong to? We at the Clog have prepared a quiz that will determine which house you would belong to if UC Berkeley magically became Hogwarts.

  1. Which college are you enrolled in?
    1. Chemistry. You’d probably love potions, wouldn’t you?
    2. Engineering. If UC Berkeley is ever attacked by dementors, it’s going to be your job to rebuild the school.
    3. Haas School of Business. Interested in a career at the Ministry of Magic?
    4. Letters and Science. You belong to a rag-tag group of students who like a little bit of everything.
  2. Where do you like to study on campus?
    1. Main Stacks. It reminds you of the dungeons of your childhood.
    2. The ASUC Student Union. It feels like a giant hall — some might even call it great.
    3. The North Reading Room. People in the ASUC think they’ve found a great hall, but they’re wrong.
    4. Memorial Glade. When it’s sunny and green, it feels just like home.
  3. What’s your favorite college school color?
    1. Blue
    2. Gold
    3. Purple
    4. Black
  4. Did you cry when you opened your UC Berkeley acceptance letter — or email?
    1. I sobbed more than I did when Dobby died.
    2. I may have shed a tear or two.
    3. People cry?
    4. If I told you, you’d have to vow to never tell a soul.
  5. On the weekend, where can you be found?
    1. Drinking at Free House
    2. Searching for fun in San Francisco
    3. In my room studying
    4. Making my way back from none of your business
    1. Gryffindor: When not hitting up Trivia Night at Pappy’s, you can be found at every football game, cheering on Cal. You’re not playing around — you’ve bought the bear paws, the bear hat and if bear feet existed, you’d buy them too. You love UC Berkeley and look for adventure on campus. Sometimes you fight squirrels.
    2. Slytherin: UC Berkeley is great and everyone knows it’s better than Stanford, but you know it’s just one step in your lifelong journey. People might think you’re looking at your education in a calculated way, but you know that you’ll do whatever you have to do to get a good job on the outside.
    3. Hufflepuff: Are you a member of the UC Rally Committee? You’re full of UC Berkeley spirit and are always there to lend a hand to your friends in need. Don’t despair, you know that your friends will always have your back too.
    4. Ravenclaw: You’re focused on your education and you’re not afraid to admit it. Yeah, you can party, but you’ll never let it get in the way of your GPA.
