Cal Connect 2008!!

I can’t believe it’s August!! As we approach yet another Fall semester, we have yet another exciting opportunity to welcome the incoming freshmen from around the Bay! For the past 2 years, Kairos has worked with the California Alumni Association to host receptions to welcome the incoming freshmen to Cal. Since Andy & I both grew up in the Bay Area and were freshmen just a couple years ago :), we thought itʼd be a wonderful opportunity to help answer any questions the incoming freshmen may have or just to welcome them to Cal. This year weʼll be hosting a reception for the students in San Mateo County on Thursday, August 14. 

Also coming to the reception, weʼll have Abe who graduated in 2005 from EECS representing the Engineering department, and current Cal students Cheng & Chanhee representing MCB and pre-med, Robert with Economics, Lin from the Haas school of Business, Ron with Industrial Engineering, and of course Andy & I, to represent the best major at Cal, Cognitive Science! Weʼre all busy getting ready the different brochures, making our very own survival guide to Berkeley, and refreshing our memory on the answers to the important questions of where to get good cheap food after midnight, what’s the best places to study, what should I bring for move-in, how can I get more involved in Cal athletics, and much more!! We’re definitely looking forward to the new faces weʼll be meeting. GO BEARS!

Informal Reception Details:

  • Date/Time: Thursday, August 14 from 7:00-8:30pm (drop in anytime!)

    “Freshmen just a couple of years ago” – nice!

    These receptions are great and the atmosphere at starbucks is always relaxing and laid back. Extra props to the manager for remembering us from last year and letting us reserve a whole section of the cafe!

    Can’t wait to meet some of the incoming freshmen!

    I’ll give them all the wisdom I’ve acquired as an EECS major, which basically boils down to this: when you walk across a room with a cup full of, say, coffee, the trick is to not look at the cup (which is the natural thing to do). Instead, you should look straight ahead. Why is this the case? Come and find out!

    (I just saved someone four years’ worth of tuition.)

    Just finished putting labels onto the postcards tonight and Lin will be taking them to the post office tomorrow morning! It was great having everyone available help with everything tonight.

    Extra Credit:
    – To Amy for the extra tasty red bean desserts
    – To Abe for designing the awesome postcards
    – To Lin for taking everything to the post office first thing in the morning

    The foosball game at the end was epic as well, with Abe and Cheng, just barely edging out me and Ron. We’ll get them next time!

    Hey Robert, sorry that your picture wasn’t there, though it was Abe’s fault since he’s the one that picked the pictures, haha! Don’t worry though, your name’s there so you’re definitely still one of “Our Friends” 🙂

    Dearest Robert, I sincerely apologize. Hopefully this more than makes up for my faux pas. =D
