This year, The Daily Californian celebrates its 150th year of publication and 50th year of independence from UC Berkeley. While much of this year has been wrapped in the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, students have returned to campus for in-person instruction, and our home on Hearst Avenue has reopened for production. For students and Daily Cal staffers alike, 2021 has been a homecoming. Many of our current staffers who were part of the Daily Cal community before the pandemic have resumed traditions and patterns of in-person work, while others are literally walking through our office doors for the first time, making their mark.

Last March, the Daily Cal published its anniversary issue, commemorating the most impactful moments in the publication’s history. Now, we want to take a moment and appreciate 150 years worth of Daily Cal staff and their tears, smiles and work that have kept the lights on. We want to thank the people around us, those who have supported us through one of our more difficult years. A paper is nothing without its community, and the Daily Cal is nothing without Berkeley.
