We’re back with another detailed infographic to illustrate a fascinating social trend that can be observed of many Berkeley undergraduate students, and is ultimately responsible for subpar library selection – stutentus dysfunctionus. This week’s productivity chart, organized from a compilation of various scientific data on library location amenities, aims to support study habits by streamlining study location options available to students.

If you’re so dysfunctional to need to use the above chart, you probably won’t benefit this late in the semester… So we hope that you’ll at least feel more productive with the help of this graphic. Happy procrastinating! read more »


Berkeley student life is punctuated by a wide variety of everyday campus issues – many that we drastically change our views on as the years go by here as undergraduates.

Remember when bumper stickers were hot on Facebook? Well, they’re not anymore because Mark Zuckerberg keeps changing the design. However, what are becoming popular on the internet are memes. As you all know, memes are just an easy way to express your everyday snarky thoughts via pictorial form. The best part is that one face can virtually describe thousands of cynical observations!

Speaking of college memes, perhaps you noticed the recent explosion of college groups dedicated to creating these memes online. Since these college groups are getting an accelerated number of “likes,” we at the Clog thought we would browse through some memes provided by other UC campuses. Unfortunately, we don’t actually understand the inside jokes other schools have. If anyone happens to understand this sucker found on the UC Davis Memes Facebook page (or this one on the UCSC page), let us know.

An anti-Scientology movement involving no resources, money, physical location or reliable followers sparked a recent U.C. Irvine academic paper, the fruits of which were presented yesterday at the Pacific Sociological Association conference in Oakland.

The paper is called “Project Chanology, Scientology & Memes: Shifting Notions of Movement Frames & Protest Strategy in the Age of Internet Culture.” From what we can tell, these protests seem to be a rick rollin’ way to let off some steam. Pseudo-libertarian stick-it-to-man efforts, like calling in hundreds of pizza orders to the orgs read more »
