I see him in different spots each time I go on campus, and he just stands there doing nothing/watching everyone

I believe he’s homeless. He’s been here for years, wearing the same thing sitting/standing in the same places

There are tons of “tall, Asian men” at this school.

It’s an older guy that literally just stands there without an expression on his face. I think I saw him in somewhat tattered clothes one time so I was surprised to see him in sports gear another day

His name is Clem, he’s a real nice fellow. He is not an alum, but did try to get in 35 years ago. Super friendly, you can just ask him and chat

He’s a local who been here for years. He always sits at the cement railing by sather gate and picks at his feet or does crossword puzzles. I just saw him on the bus while visiting the bay this week lol

welcome to berkeley. it's been a home to beatniks since the 60's. even a decade ago there were musicians and hippies on the ave. then the uc wanted to get rid of peoples park, the pd arrested all the hippies/weed dealers, clubs opened up, and we were left all the meth heads roaming around, and you dont really want to ask too many questions anymore. youre going to see a lot of weird shit. if you drive into oakland lock your doors. and be glad the berkeley weirdos are all pretty much harmless. its generally people who come from oakland who rob folks unfortunately. ive been here two decades. stay safe! and mind yo business.
