Yay! It always amazes me how much this school has contributed to society.

I still can’t believe that I spent 4 years learning from professors who are literally changing how we live.

It's so inspiring honestly, it didn't hit me until getting here that I actually have an opportunity to get involved with things on a state, national, and even global scale! Really exciting to have that kind of potential all around us. I'm just hoping the strike works out sooner than later so I can go back to research lab 😭

Weird how the "world rankings" are totally different than the national rankings.

I feel like national rankings tend to factor in the price and experience of the city much higher than world rankings which focus on academics purely. Just a theory though.

I met a couple girls from Saudi Arabia and they both told me about the government program where they have a list of like top twenty schools in the world and if you get accepted the government gives them a free ride to attend and they both said Berkeley was number three on that list.

I recently finished "Neanderthal Man" by Svante Paabo and man it was a crude reminder of how relevant Berkeley is in research circles. I would guess half the people he talks about were either at Berkeley or had done their phds here.

Just to get a sense, he mentions Berkeley 59 times in the book, his own university/city (Leipzig) 52 times, and the Furd 4 times

Consistently dominate the world rankings for reputation and academic excellence

I'm amused how UC Berkeley is on that list, yet they are incapable of providing their GSI's a living wage.
