UC Berkeley: Not Green, but Very Fashionable

veryfashionableAlthough UC Berkeley was ranked the “Greenest School in the World” [1] (according to a study conducted by the University of Indonesia) only eight months ago, we were dumbfounded to find out that we were left off of the Daily Beasts’ top 25 “Greenest Schools” in America list. [2]

However, all hard feelings (including our continued dismay at Cal’s absence in the “Most Radical Schools” list by the Huffington Post [3] — don’t think we forgot, Huff!) have been forgiven (temporarily) after reading the spectacular news that our institution has been ranked ninth in Her Campus’ “Most Fashionable Colleges” List. [4]

And here we thought that being fashionable was only a first day of school sham that spiraled towards sweatpants and faded Cal shirts the rest of the semester.

The web site partially attributes the ranking to “Fashion and Student Trends (FAST), a California-wide student organization [that] has been going strong since [2005].”

In actuality, FAST hasn’t been going all that strong lately. Their website [5] hasn’t been updated in over a year and their Facebook [6] has been a dead-zone since January.

Nevertheless, we’ll take the ranking.

Either way, even if they decide to rid us of our spot on the list because of their misinformation, our very own fashion wizard Kathleen Murillo [7] could single handedly lead the way back to top 10.
