Cal students can facilitate a semester-long class made and developed by them (or students before them) through the DeCal Program on campus, which stands for Democratic Education at Cal. One of my friends who is a Senior facilitates a DeCal called FemSex, and she says it's the highlight of her college experience by far! Golden Bears also have plenty of on-campus events and activities to take part in: sporting events, movie nights, symposiums, socials, or a one-of-a-kind event such as the one I participated in back in 2011--being one of 500 other Cal students who made the world's longest California Roll! The third thing that Cal students do for fun is definitely going out to nearby San Francisco or Oakland to enjoy all of the Bay area's food, culture, and night life.

UC Berkeley is filled with interesting things to do. The number one thing students do for fun is going to the sports games, especially the ones against Stanfurd (intentionally misspelled). They competitive rivalry between the two schools is legendary. Students at Cal also enjoy going sailing on the Bay. We have special clubs designed around taking students out on the water for free. It's really popular in the summer. Ignoring the obvious third choice of protesting or starting right's movements, the third thing Berkeley students love to do is go hiking. Being perfectly situated at the bottom of the hills, we have tons of hiking trails. Just yesterday, my friend hiked one before sunrise and took a picture of herself cupping the rising sun!

The top three things that students do for fun at the University of California Berkeley is to go the gym, hang out with friends, and to go to sporting events. Going to the gym is fun at Berkeley because it is a stress reliever from all the difficult classes that students have to take. It is also another way to become healthier and stronger. Students also like to hang with friends because it is another way to relieve stress and to be happier. Going to sporting events is also fun because students get to show their school pride as well as have someone to root for.

Study, study, and then study some more! The coursework at Berkeley is intensive and requires many hours of reading and study time. While we do lots of other things for fun, such as roaming around the city, hopping on the Bart train to San Francisco, or staging a protest somewhere on campus, studying is our favorite pastime.

  1. As with most colleges, football is a big thing for the students here. When football season begins in the Fall, most of the students get together and go to the games. Rivalry week is a big deal for the students here. It really brings up the spirit around campus.

  2. Most of the students here on campus are also involved in clubs. They join clubs of interest so that they can be involved in something they are passionate about. The meetings are usually held once to twice a week and its a way for them to engage with people of similar interests.

  3. College is a stressful place, so students sometimes need a place to go and relax. Memorial Glade is the perfect spot for relaxing and studying with friends. Sometimes people get together and play frisbee or flag football in the glade as well. It is a fun, relaxing area to spend time.

  • As a Berkeley student, it is practically required that you hike up to the Big C at least once. It is literally a big golden C at the top of a hill with a great view of the bay.
  • Downtown Berkeley is the perfect place to hang out, walk around, get food, and maybe catch a movie.
  • Students often plan fun trips to San Francisco with friends or take trips there for shows and concerts. The bay area is full of fun stuff.

At UC Berkeley, the amount of things for students to do cannot possibly be limited. However, here are what I believe to the top three activities for students to accomplish while on campus:

1) Exploring the culinary makeup of the city Whether students are in the mood for Korean Soft Tofu Soup or ice cream nestled in between freshly baked ice cream, there is always the perfect restaurant to satisfy a hungry student's cravings

2) Attending sports games Not only are Cal students dedicated in the classroom, but they are also diehard sports fans. Cal students cheer on their fellow Golden Bears from the football field to the basketball court all the way to the swimming pool.

3) Taking adventures From spending a weekend kayaking in the Berkeley Marina to taking a midnight hike up to the Big C, students are always on the lookout for adventures.

When we're not studying, we're getting to know each other or becoming more involved in an extracurricular. As freshman at Berkeley, there are endless things to do for fun. For me, if I'm not hanging out with the people I live with, studying, or at work, then probably, I'm involved in the Cal Hurling Team (an Irish club sport), watching a film, or doing community service.

The top 3 things students do for fun at Berkeley are eating, hiking around campus and the surrounding landscape, and studying into long hours of the night. There are many places to eat in Berkeley, so it's almost natural for people to go out, meet up, and eat together at one or more of the many restaurants, pastry shops, boba places, and froyo places. There's also a wide range of food from different cultures, so many students who are not from white culture can eat things that are more familiar. There are different trails in our hills that people hike on for fun. These hikes can suffice as a work out or a way to catch a concert from Greek theater without paying. But of course, students hike on a daily basis along the slopes of our campus grounds. There are some students who study all the time, leaving no time for conventional fun. Therefore they turn studying into their fun time, too.

Cal students often go for a "boba run" in between study sessions. At the beginning of the semester, when hopes and energy levels are still high, they love to go hiking. Most of all, Cal students love watching Netflix.

  1. Explore- get lost searching through neighborhoods, shops, and museums in San Francisco or hiking trails in the hills
  2. Greek life- it's always 5 o'clock somewhere
  3. Clubs/IMs- the students here all have various passions, and if the club you are looking for doesn't already exist then chances are someone will want to create it with you The kid sitting next to you in Chem who knows all the answers also plays the violin, speaks Chinese, volunteers at a homeless shelter, and plays for a club soccer team. At Berkeley, there are countless opportunities and ways to get involved in whatever calls to you. Part of what makes Berkeley so great is the attitude of the student body. We go for what we want!

The second one is the traditional UC Berkeley's event: the naked Run. Every semester, the week before the final examination week, a group of students take off all their clothes and run across the Main Stack. This event is for students to relieve their stress.

The third thing that UC Berkeley's student do for fun is to ask someone who are wearing red to take off their red clothes during the Big Game week. Red is representing Stanford.
