University of California, Berkeley The University of California, Berkeley (also referred to as UC BerkeleyBerkeleyCalifornia, or simply Cal) is a public research university located in Berkeley, California, United States. The university occupies 1,232 acres (499 ha) on the eastern side of the San Francisco Bay with the central campus resting on 178 acres (72 ha).[5] Berkeley is the most selective public university in the United States.[6] It offers approximately 350 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a wide range of disciplines.[7]HP Pavilion dv6-2112sa Laptop Keyboard Established in 1868 as the result of merger of the private College of California and the public Agricultural, Mining, and Mechanical Arts College in Oakland, Berkeley is the oldest of the ten major campuses affiliated with the University of California (UC). Berkeley has been charged with providing both "classical" and "practical" education for the state's people and is the flagship institution in the University of California system.[8][9] Berkeley co-manages three United States Department of Energy National Laboratories, including the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy.  SONY VAIO PCG-FR315M Laptop Keyboard Berkeley faculty, alumni, and researchers have won 71 Nobel Prizes (including 28 alumni Nobel laureates), 9 Wolf Prizes, 7 Fields Medals, 15 Turing Awards, 45 MacArthur Fellowships,[10] 20 Academy Awards, and 11 Pulitzer Prizes. To date, UC Berkeley and its researchers are associated with 6 chemical elements of the periodic table (Californium, Seaborgium,Berkelium, Einsteinium, Fermium, Lawrencium) and Berkeley Lab has discovered 16 chemical elements in total – more than any other university in the world.[11] SONY Vaio VGN-FW27 Laptop Keyboard Berkeley is a founding member of the Association of American Universities and continues to have very high research activity with $652.4 million in research and development expenditures in 2009.[12][13] Berkeley physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer was the scientific director of the Manhattan Project that developed the first atomic bomb in the world, which he personally headquartered at Los Alamos, New Mexico, during World War II.  TOSHIBA Satellite U305-S7446 Laptop Keyboard Known as the California Golden Bears (often shortened to "Cal Bears" or just "Cal"), the athletic teams are members of both the Pacific-12 Conference and the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation in the NCAA. Cal athletes have won national titles in many sports, including football, men's and women's swimming, men's basketball, baseball, men's gymnastics, softball, water polo, rugby, and crew. The official colors of the university and its athletic teams are Yale Blue and California Gold. TOSHIBA Satellite L300 Laptop Keyboard In 1866, the land comprising the current Berkeley campus was purchased by the private College of California. Because it lacked sufficient funds to operate, it eventually merged with the state-run Agricultural, Mining, and Mechanical Arts College to form the University of California, the first full-curriculum public university in the state. The university opened in September 1869. TOSHIBA Satellite U305-S7446 Laptop Keyboard Andrew Gabrielson was a trustee of the College of California and suggested that the college be named in honor of the Anglo-Irish philosopher George Berkeley.[14] In 1870 Henry Durant, the founder of the College of California, became the first president. With the completion of North andSouth Halls in 1873, the university relocated to its Berkeley location with 167 male and 222 female students and held its first classes.[15]TOSHIBA Satellite L775-S7245 Laptop Keyboard Beginning in 1891, Phoebe Apperson Hearst made several large gifts to Berkeley, funding a number of programs and new buildings, and sponsoring, in 1898, an international competition in Antwerp, Belgium, where French architect Emile Bernard submitted the winning design for a campus master plan. In 1905, the University Farm was established near Sacramento, ultimately becoming the University of California, Davis.[16] By the 1920s, the number of campus buildings had grown substantially, and included twenty structures designed by architect John Galen Howard.[17]  HP Mini 110-3113tu Laptop Keyboard Robert Gordon Sproul served as president from 1930 to 1958.[18] By 1942, the American Council on Education ranked UC Berkeley second only to Harvard University in the number of distinguished departments.[18]Compaq Presario CQ57 Series Laptop Keyboard During World War II, following Glenn Seaborg's then-secret discovery of plutonium, Ernest Orlando Lawrence's Radiation Laboratory began to contract with the U.S. Army to develop the atomic bomb. UC Berkeley physics professor J. Robert Oppenheimer was named scientific head of the Manhattan Project in 1942.[19][20]Along with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (formerly the Radiation Lab), Berkeley is now a partner in managing two other labs, Los Alamos National Laboratory (1943) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (1952). HP 633736-001 Laptop Keyboard Originally, military training was compulsory for male undergraduates, and Berkeley housed an armory for that purpose. In 1917, Berkeley's ROTC program was established, and its School of Military Aeronautics trained future pilots, including Jimmy Doolittle, who graduated with a B.A. in 1922. Both Robert McNamaraand Frederick C. Weyand graduated from UC Berkeley's ROTC program, earning B.A. degrees in 1937 and 1938, respectively. In 1926, future fleet admiral Chester W. Nimitz established the first Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps unit at Berkeley. HP Mini 110-1032NR Laptop Keyboard During World War II, the military increased its presence on campus to recruit more officers, and by 1944, more than 1,000 Berkeley students were enrolled in the V-12 Navy College Training Program and naval training school for diesel engineering.[21] The Board of Regents ended compulsory military training at Berkeley in 1962. TOSHIBA Satellite l20-101 Laptop Keyboard During the McCarthy era in 1949, the Board of Regents adopted an anti-communist loyalty oath. A number of faculty members objected and were dismissed;[22] ten years passed before they were reinstated with back pay.[23]SONY VAIO VGN NR385E/T Laptop Keyboard In 1952, the University of California became an entity separate from the Berkeley campus. Each campus was given relative autonomy and its own Chancellor. Then-president Sproul assumed presidency of the entire University of California system, and Clark Kerr became the first Chancellor of UC Berkeley.[18]SONY VAIO VGN-AW31S Laptop Keyboard Berkeley gained a reputation for student activism in the 1960s with the Free Speech Movement in 1964,[24] and opposition to the Vietnam War. In the highly publicized People's Park protest in 1969, students and the school conflicted over use of a plot of land; the National Guard was called in and violence erupted.[24][25] Modern students at Berkeley are less politically active, with a greater percentage of moderates and conservatives.[26][27] Democrats outnumber Republicans on the faculty by a ratio of 9:1.[28]DELL Precision M4500 Laptop Keyboard Various human and animal rights groups have recently conflicted with Berkeley. Native Americans conflicted with the school over repatriation of remains from the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology.[29] Animal-rights activists have threatened faculty members using animals for research.[30] The school's response to tree sitters protesting construction caused controversy in the local community.[31]ACER AEZR1R00110 Laptop Keyboard As state funding (now about 25%) has declined,[32] Berkeley has turned to private sources: BP donated $500 million to developbiofuels, the Hewlett Foundation gave $113 million to endow 100 faculty chairs, and Dow Chemical gave $10 million to researchsustainability.[33][34] The BP grant has been criticized for diverting food production to fuel production.[35][36] HP 407857-001 Laptop Keyboard The original name University of California was frequently shortened to California or Cal. UC Berkeley's athletic teams date to this time and so are referred to as the California Golden BearsCal Bears, or just Cal. Today, University of Californiarefers to a statewide school system. Referring to the University of California, Berkeley as UCB or University of Californiaat Berkeley is discouraged[37] and the domain name is berkeley.edu. Moreover, the term "Cal Berkeley" is not a correct reference to the school, but is occasionally used.  HP Mini 110-1115SA Laptop Keyboard Berkeley is unaffiliated with the Berklee College of Music or Berkeley College. However, UC Berkeley does share academic ties with Yale University; not only were many original Berkeley founders Yale graduates (see below), but the names, University of California, Berkeley and Berkeley College (Yale), were inspired by the intellectual contributions of the western philosopher, George Berkeley. DELL Inspiron N4050 Laptop Keyboard The 2012 Shanghai Jiao Tong University's Academic Ranking of World Universities ranked Berkeley 4th in the world and the United States and 2nd in California. In terms of "fields", Berkeley is ranked 2nd in Natural Sciences and Mathematics, 3rd in Engineering/Technology and Computer Science, 3rd in Social Sciences, 15th in Life and Agricultural Sciences, and 30th in Clinical Medicine and Pharmacy. In its "subject" ranking, Berkeley is ranked 2nd in Chemistry, TOSHIBA Satellite L775D-S7226 Laptop Keyboard 3rd in Mathematics, 3rd in Computer Science, 3rd in Physics, and 4th in Economics/Business.[38] According to the US News & World Report Subject Rankings, Berkeley is ranked 4th in Arts & Humanities, 3rd in Engineering & IT, 5th in Life Sciences and Biomedicine, 5th in Natural and Physical Sciences, and 5th in Social Sciences. SONY VAIO VGN-CS190C* Laptop Keyboard Berkeley is ranked 5th among 300 Best World Universities in 2012 compiled by Human Resources & Labor Review (HRLR) on Measurements of World's Top 300 Universities Graduates' Performance .[39]Compaq Presario CQ57 Series Laptop Keyboard In 2012, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings named Berkeley the world's 5th most prestigious university, and one of six globally recognized "super brands."[47] The 2012-2013 Times Higher Education World University Rankings placed Berkeley 9th in the world, 6th in the United States, and 3rd in California.[48COMPAQ Presario C700 Laptop Keyboard ] The QS World University Rankingsplaced Berkeley 21st in the world, 14th in the United States, and 3rd in California.[49] (In 2010, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and QS World University Rankings parted ways to produce separate rankings.) In the 2006 international edition of Newsweek, Berkeley was the fifth-ranked global university,[50] and the Center for Measuring University Performance placed Berkeley ninth among national research universities.[51]FUJITSU Lifebook T4215 Laptop Keyboard Berkeley ranks 9th among universities that have produced the largest number of living billionaires.[52]The Princeton Review ranks Berkeley as a "college with a conscience"[53] and the 5th best value in public colleges.[54] The College Sustainability Report Card, published by the Sustainable Endowments Institute, gave Berkeley a B in 2009 for its efforts in environmental sustainability.[55]ASUS U3S Laptop Keyboard Berkeley's undergraduate program was ranked the top public university among "National Universities" in the United States by U.S. News & World Report.[56] In 2009, UC Berkeley was ranked 3rd by Washington Monthly and in 2012, 21st among National Universities by U.S. News & World Report.[57][58] U.S. News ranked both the undergraduate programs in engineering and business tied for 3rd in the nation.[59][60]HP Pavilion dm1-1020es Laptop Keyboard The Wall Street Journal's Rankings by Major place Berkeley in 2nd place for Computer Science, 3rd for both Marketing/Advertising and Finance, 6th for Business/Economics, 8th for Accounting, and 12th for Engineering.[61] FUJITSU Amilo Mini Ui 3520 Laptop Keyboard The Berkeley campus encompasses approximately 1,232 acres (499 ha), though the "central campus" occupies only the low-lying western 178 acres (72 ha) of this area. Of the remaining 1,000 acres (400 ha), approximately 200 acres (81 ha) are occupied by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; other facilities above the main campus include the Lawrence Hall of Science and several research units, notably the Space Sciences Laboratory, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, an undeveloped 800-acre (320 ha) ecological preserve, SONY VAIO VGN-AW31S Laptop Keyboard the University of California Botanical Garden and a recreation center in Strawberry Canyon. Portions of the mostly undeveloped eastern area of the campus is actually within the City of Oakland; the northernmost eastern corner of Oakland extends from the Claremont Resort north through the Panoramic Hill neighborhood to Tilden Park. SONY VAIO VGN-AR570 Laptop Keyboard To the west of the central campus is the downtown business district of Berkeley; to the northwest is the neighborhood of North Berkeley, including the so-calledGourmet Ghetto, a commercial district known for high quality dining due to the presence of such world-renowned restaurants as Chez Panisse. Immediately to the north is a quiet residential neighborhood known as Northside with a large graduate student population;[65] situated north of that are the upscale residential neighborhoods of the Berkeley Hills.  ACER Aspire 5739G-6959 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Immediately southeast of campus lies fraternity row, and beyond that the Clark Kerr Campus and an upscale residential area named Claremont. The area south of the university includes student housing and Telegraph Avenue, one of Berkeley's main shopping districts with stores, street vendors and restaurants catering to college students and tourists. In addition, the University also owns land to the northwest of the main campus, a 90-acre (36 ha) married student housing complex in the nearby town of Albany ("Albany Village" and the "Gill Tract"), and a field research station several miles to the north in Richmond, California.  HP G50-116CA Laptop CPU Cooling Fan U.S. News & World Report ranks UC Berkeley's professional programs among the best in the country in 2012. The Haas School of Business and Boalt School of Lawboth come in at 7th, while the Goldman School of Public Policy is ranked 6th, and the UC Berkeley School of Public Health is ranked 8th. UC Berkeley's graduate sciences also receive high marks, ranking 1st in Chemistry and Computer Science; 2nd in Math, Statistics, and Biological Sciences; 3rd in Earth Sciences; and 5th in Physics. HP Pavilion dv6736nr Laptop CPU Cooling Fan UC Berkeley's graduate Engineering program is 3rd in overall quality, with specialty rankings of 1st in Civil Engineering and Environmental/Environmental Health Engineering; 2nd in Chemical Engineering; and 3rd in Computer Engineering, Electrical/ Electronic/ Communications Engineering, Industrial/ Manufacturing Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The graduate social science programs at Berkeley score 1st in English, History, Psychology, and Sociology; and 6th in Economics and Political Science.[62] Faculty in the English Department have received 25 university Distinguished Teaching Awards—more than any other department. FUJITSU LifeBook S7111 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The most recent (2010) United States National Research Council Rankings, widely considered the ranking authority on US doctoral programs, identified UC Berkeley as having the highest number of top-ranked doctoral programs in the nation. Of all US research universities, UC Berkeley has the most graduate programs that extend into the top ten, with 48 out of 52 programs that were ranked, as well as the most programs with ranks that extend into the top 5, with 43 out of 52 ranked programs. HP Pavilion dv6-3016tx Laptop CPU Cooling Fan UC Berkeley has the second highest number of graduate programs with a ranking of #1, with 16 out of 52 reaching top status—for comparison,Harvard achieved this level in 19 of its 52 ranked programs, while Stanford achieved it in 11 of its 47 ranked programs.[63] UC Berkeley doctoral programs that received a #1 ranking include Agricultural and Resource Economics, Astrophysics, Chemistry, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, English, Epidemiology, German, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, MCB: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, MCB: Genetics, Genomics, and Development, Physics, Plant Biology, and Political Science.  HP Pavilion dv7-3057nr Laptop CPU Cooling Fan UC Berkeley was also the #1 recipient of National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships between 2001 and 2010, with 1,333 awards. The next closest were MIT at 1,242 and Stanford at 1,070.[64]HP Pavilion dv7-2109tx Laptop CPU Cooling Fan What is considered the historic campus today was the result of the 1898 "International Competition for the Phoebe HearstArchitectural Plan for the University of California," funded by William Randolph Hearst's mother and initially held in the Belgian city of Antwerp; eleven finalists were judged again in San Francisco in 1899.[66] HP 608378-001 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The winner was Frenchman Émile Bénard, however he refused to personally supervise the implementation of his plan and the task was subsequently given to architecture professor John Galen Howard. Howard designed over twenty buildings, which set the tone for the campus up until its expansion in the 1950s and 1960s. The structures forming the “classical core” of the campus were built in the Beaux-Arts Classical style, and include Hearst Greek Theatre, Hearst Memorial Mining Building, Toshiba Satellite A40-231 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Doe Memorial Library, California Hall, Wheeler Hall, (Old) Le Conte Hall, Gilman Hall, Haviland Hall, Wellman Hall, Sather Gate, and the 307-foot (94 m)Sather Tower (nicknamed "the Campanile" after its architectural inspiration, St Mark's Campanile in Venice). Buildings he regarded as temporary, nonacademic, or not particularly "serious" were designed in shingle or Collegiate Gothic styles; examples of these are North Gate Hall, Dwinelle Annex, and Stephens Hall. Many of Howard's designs are recognized California Historical Landmarks[67] and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. SONY Vaio VPC-EB11FX Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Built in 1873 in a Victorian Second-Empire-style, South Hall is the oldest university building in California. It, and the Frederick Law Olmsted-designedPiedmont Avenue east of the main campus, are the only remnants from the original University of California before John Galen Howard's buildings were constructed. Other architects whose work can be found in the campus and surrounding area are Bernard Maybeck[68] (best known for the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco), Maybeck's student Julia Morgan (Hearst Women's Gymnasium), Charles Willard Moore (Haas School of Business) and Joseph Esherick (Wurster Hall). HP 532613-001 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Flowing into the main campus are two branches of Strawberry Creek. The south fork enters a culvert upstream of the recreational complex at the mouth of Strawberry Canyon and passes beneath California Memorial Stadium before appearing again in Faculty Glade. It then runs through the center of the campus before disappearing underground at the west end of campus. The north fork appears just east of University House and runs through the glade north of the Valley Life Sciences Building, the original site of the Campus Arboretum Dell Vostro 3500 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Trees in the area date from the founding of the University in the 1870s. The campus, itself, contains numerous wooded areas; including: Founders' Rock, Faculty Glade, Grinnell Natural Area, and the Eucalyptus Grove, which is both the tallest stand of such trees in the world and the tallest stand of hardwood trees in North America.[69]HP Pavilion dv7-3065dx Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The campus sits on the Hayward Fault, which runs directly through California Memorial Stadium.[70] There is ongoing construction to retrofit the stadium. The "treesit" protest revolved around the controversy of clearing away trees by the stadium to build the new Student Athlete High Performance Center. As the stadium sits directly on the fault, this raised campus concerns of the safety of student athletes in the event of an earthquake as they train in facilities under the stadium stands.[71]SAMSUNG Q330-JS09 Laptop Keyboard In 2009, UC Berkeley developed the Climate Action Plan, pledging to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by one-third, and eventually to achieve climate neutrality. The university tries to use as much post-consumer waste recycled copy paper as possible.[72] The ReUse project allows for people to share unneeded office supplies and equipment.[73] The Berkeley Green Campus Program is a student-led initiative, involving energy reduction challenges, light bulb swaps, and other programs designed to reduce the campus's eco-footprint.[74] UC Berkeley's efforts toward sustainability earned the school a B on the College Sustainability Report Card; overall, the school's grades within the sections were high—it earned A's in the majority of the Report Card. Packard Bell PEW91 Laptop Keyboard UC Berkeley receives funding from a variety of sources, including federal and state authorities, and private donors. With the exception of government contracts, public money is proportioned to UC Berkeley and the other 9 universities of the University of California system through the UC Office of the President. DELL PVDG3 Laptop Keyboard Due in part to the 2008–11 California budget crisis, the state of California has reduced its educational appropriations to the University of California.[83]State educational appropriations such as general support given in the state's annual budget, and appropriations given to the state through the federal American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) dropped $37M in 2010-11 from the previous calendar year. The university projects that state general support will drop from 15% to 11% of the university's total revenues in 2011-12. HP Pavilion dv6-2020sa Laptop Keyboard State budget shortfalls as well as rising costs in pensions have been cited by the university as two of the leading reasons for its current financial woes. During the formulation of the 2011-12 UC Berkeley budget, the university projected that it will have a $200M funding gap in the 5 years after that year's budget. In response to revenue shortfalls, the UC Regents have raised tuition, and the university is trying to increase the number of non-resident undergraduates, who will pay the more costly out-of-state tuition. Compaq Presario CQ42-228LA Laptop Keyboard Nearly 1/3rd of revenues from tuition and other student fees are returned to students as scholarships and fellowships.[84] Berkeley is the oldest of the ten major campuses affiliated with the University of California. The University of California is governed by a 26-member Board of Regents, 18 of which are appointed by the Governor of California to 12-year terms, 7 serving as ex officio members, and a single student regent.[75] The position of Chancellor was created in 1952 to lead individual campuses. The Board appointed Robert J. Birgeneau to be the 9th Chancellor of the university in 2004.[76] 12 vice chancellors report directly to the Chancellor. The Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost serves as the chief academic officer and is the office to which the deans of the 14 colleges and schools report.[77] HP 535689-001 Laptop Keyboard Berkeley enrolled 25,885 undergraduate and 10,257 graduate students in Fall 2011.[81] Women make up 53% of undergraduate enrollments and 46% graduate and professional students. 82% of undergraduates and 43% of graduate and professional students are California residents.[81] In the wake of Proposition 209, the plurality of Asian American students and under-representation of African-American and Hispanic students has received national attention.[87][88][89][90]ACER Aspire 5738PZG Laptop Keyboard Berkeley received 61,695 applications for admission to the undergraduate program in 2012; 13,037 were admitted (21%).[81] 12,371 students from other colleges and universities applied for transfer admission in 2008; 3,232 were admitted (26%) and 2,012 (62%) enrolled. 97% of freshmen enrolled the next year, the four-year graduation rate was 61%,HP G72-b08EG Laptop Keyboard and the six-year rate was 88%.[81][91] Admitted freshman applicants had an average high school GPA of 4.16, an average ACT Composite score of 30, and an average combined SAT score of 2067 (average SAT scores of 674 for Critical Reading, 701 for Mathematics, and 692 for Writing).[92] Berkeley's enrollment of National Merit Scholars was third in the nation until 2002, when participation in the National Merit program was discontinued.[93] 31% of admitted students receive federal Pell grants.[94]SONY VAIO VGN NR160E Laptop Keyboard Berkeley's 32 libraries tie together to make the fourth largest academic library in the United States surpassed only byHarvard University Library, Yale University Library and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library.[95] However, considering the relative sizes and ages of these University libraries, Berkeley's collections have been growing about as fast as those at Harvard and Yale combined: specifically, 1.8 times faster than Harvard, and 1.9 times faster than Yale. In 2003, DELL V119525BS1 Laptop Keyboard the Association of Research Libraries ranked it as the top public and third overall university library in North America based on various statistical measures of quality.[96] As of 2006, Berkeley's library system contains over 11 million volumes and maintains over 70,000 serial titles.[97] The libraries together cover over 12 acres (4.9 ha) of land and form one of the largest library complexes in the world.[98] Doe Library serves as the library system's reference, periodical, and administrative center,  HP 605344-001 Laptop Keyboard while most of the main collections are housed in the subterranean Gardner Main Stacks and Moffitt Undergraduate Library. The Bancroft Library, with holdings of over 400,000 printed volumes, maintains a collection that documents the history of the western part of North America, with an emphasis on California, Mexico and Central America. COMPAQ Presario C710EL Laptop Keyboard TOSHIBA Satellite L775D-S7220 Laptop Keyboard Berkeley's current faculty includes 227 American Academy of Arts and Sciences Fellows, 3 Fields Medal winners, 83 Fulbright Scholars, 139 Guggenheim Fellows, 87 members of the National Academy of Engineering, 132 members of the National Academy of Sciences, 9 Nobel Prize winners, 3 Pulitzer Prize winners, 84 Sloan Fellows, 7 Wolf Prize winners and 1 Pritzker Prize winner.[99] 71 Nobel Laureates have been affiliated with the university as faculty, alumni or researchers, the most of any public university in the United States and sixth most of any university in the world. HP G61-420SO Laptop Keyboard The official university mascot is Oski the Bear, who debuted in 1941. Previously, live bear cubs were used as mascots at Memorial Stadium. It was decided in 1940 that a costumed mascot would be a better alternative to a live bear. Named after the Oski-wow-wow yell, he is cared for by the Oski Committee, whose members have exclusive knowledge of the identity of the costume-wearer.[100]HP G42-366TX Laptop Keyboard The University of California Marching Band, which has served the university since 1891, performs at every home football game and at select road games as well. A smaller subset of the Cal Band, the Straw Hat Band, performs at basketball games, volleyball games, and other campus and community events.[101]HP G62-458TU Laptop Keyboard The UC Rally Committee, formed in 1901, is the official guardian of California's Spirit and Traditions. Wearing their traditional blue and gold rugbies, Rally Committee members can be seen at all major sporting and spirit events. Committee members are charged with the maintenance of the five Cal flags, the large California banner overhanging the Memorial Stadium Student Section and Haas Pavilion HP G61-420SO Laptop Keyboard , the California Victory Cannon, Card Stunts and The Big "C" among other duties. The Rally Committee is also responsible for safekeeping of the Stanford Axe when it is in Cal's possession.[102] The Chairman of the Rally Committee holds the title "Custodian of the Axe" while it is in the Committee's care. Dell Inspiron 2500 Laptop Keyboard Overlooking the main Berkeley campus from the foothills in the east, The Big "C" is an important symbol of California school spirit. The Big "C" has its roots in an early 20th century campus event called "Rush," which pitted the freshman and sophomore classes against each other in a race up Charter Hill that often developed into a wrestling match. HP Pavilion DV6-1105ee Laptop Keyboard It was eventually decided to discontinue Rush and, in 1905, the freshman and sophomore classes banded together in a show of unity to build the Big "C".[103] Owing to its prominent position, the Big "C" is often the target of pranks by rival Stanford University students who paint the Big "C" red and also fraternities and sororities who paint it their organization's colors. One of the Rally Committee's functions is to repaint the Big "C" to its traditional color of King Alfred Yellow. Lenovo 3000 N200 Laptop Keyboard Cal students invented the college football tradition of card stunts. Then known as Bleacher Stunts, they were first performed during the 1910 Big Game and consisted of two stunts: a picture of the Stanford Axe and a large blue "C" on a white background. The tradition continues today in the Cal student section and incorporates complicated motions, for example tracing the Cal script logo on a blue background with an imaginary yellow pen.[104]Gateway MT6723 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The California Victory Cannon, placed on Tightwad Hill overlooking the stadium, is fired before every football home game, after every score, and after every Cal victory. First used in the 1963 Big Game, it was originally placed on the sidelines before moving to Tightwad Hill in 1971. The only time the cannon ran out of ammunition was during a game against Pacific in 1991, when Cal scored 12 touchdowns.[105]Toshiba Portege R705 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Other traditions have included events that span only a few years. William (or Willie) the Polka Dot Man was a performance artist who frequented Sproul Plaza during the late 1970s and early 1980s.[106] The Naked Guy (now deceased[107]) and Larry the Drummer, who performed Batman tunes, appeared in the late 1980s and early 1990s.[106]HP Pavilion dv7-6135dx Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The university runs twelve different residence halls, ranging from undergraduate residence halls (both themed and non-themed) and family student housing, to re-entry student housing and optional international student housing at the International House. Undergraduate residence halls are located off-campus in the city of Berkeley. Units 1, 2 and 3, located on the south side of campus, offer high-rise accommodations with common areas on every other floor. These three residential high-rises share a common dining hall, called Crossroads. Further away and also on the south side of campus is Clark Kerr, an undergraduate residence hall complex that houses many student athletes and was once a school for the deaf and blind. SONY VGN-FE21H Laptop Keyboard In the foothills east of the central campus, there are three additional undergraduate residence hall complexes: Foothill, Stern, and Bowles. Foothill is a co-ed suite-style hall reminiscent of a Swiss chalet. According to the Chancellor, it is considered one of the best residence halls at UC Berkeley. Just south of Foothill, overlooking the Hearst Greek Theatre, is the all-women's traditional-style Stern Hall, which boasts an original mural by Diego Rivera. Because of their proximity to the College of Engineering andCollege of Chemistry, Acer eMachines E640 Laptop Keyboard these residence halls often house science and engineering majors. They tend to be quieter than the southside complexes, but because of their location next to the theatre, often get free glimpses of concerts. Bowles Hall, the oldest state-owned residence hall in California, is located immediately north of California Memorial Stadium.

The BSC is a nonprofit housing cooperative network consisting of 20 cooperative homes and 1250 member-owners.[110] The USCA (as the BSC was known by at that time) was founded in 1933 by then-director of the YWCA, SAMSUNG R522 Laptop Keyboard Harry Kingman. The birth of the USCA, as well as many other cooperative organizations around the country, coincided with the Great Depression precisely as a response to scant resources. By living together in large houses and pooling together resources, members found that their monetary resources could go further to pay for their cost of living than living separately. HP Probook 4520S Laptop Keyboard In the 1960s, the USCA pioneered the first co-ed university housing in Berkeley, called the Ridge Project (later renamed Casa Zimbabwe). In 1975, the USCA founded its first and only vegetarian-themed house, Lothlorien.
