City of Berkeley. bums smell, streets smell, people smell.
You can smell pot in the streets, the streets haven't
been paved in years. Everyone cares so much about
their own achievements and their resume. But in fact,
so many people don't matter on this campus.
If you're looking for social life here, it is very
minimal besides all the same groups smoking and drinking their
lives away. Normal stores (not markets) close at around
6pm, leaving the students in their homes on weekdays.
As for classes, so many of them are insignificantly
boring. On a side note, the city operation of
berkeley is very poor.
Berkeley could be one
of the worst places for drivers with all the one-way
streets, many stop signs, unpredictable roadblocks, up and down hills,
and the lack of parking for any sort of event.
There is actually three respectable things about UC Berkeley, and
they are the libraries, faculty, and the Campanile (clock tower).
One advice too all of you students looking
to attend berkeley, is to STAY AWAY. A pessimestic
environment will turn you into a pessimist.
