Life as a UC Berkeley student is one of the most difficult and confusing times of our lives. When we’re asked how it is going to UC Berkeley, many of us find ourselves unable to explain what it’s really like to be a student at the No. 1 public university in the world — can we get a “go bears”? We at the Clog get your confusion and want to help you explain how you’re feeling through photos that we can’t even explain ourselves.
Actually being a student at UC Berkeley — you’re the bravest and everyone should be saluting you whenever they see you!
When your GSI calls on you during section but you’re actually five weeks behind on the reading
That moment you get into Haas but the rest of your friends didn’t
Having all your midterms during the same week
Starting your assignment at 11:30 p.m. when it’s due at midnight
Being asked for the millionth time on Sproul if you’re interested in consulting when that’s the last thing you’re interested in
When you and your friend are completely clueless in the class you’re both in and you have a midterm coming up
Getting back your midterm grades to see that all your hard work did not pay off
Walking into class late because you just had to get coffee
Constantly complaining about being a UC Berkeley student but also being UC Berkeley’s biggest fan
Being a UC Berkeley student is a truly unique experience that is hard to explain to outsiders. Through these unexplainable photos, however, we hope we helped to somewhat explain a little bit of what the feeling of being a UC Berkeley student is really like.
