Not really… but close enough. They may not be the diamonds you hoped for, but do these twinkling stars bring you tranquility, and do you ever wonder what makes them shine oh so bright?

Perhaps date night is approaching, and you are racking your brain trying to come up with a romantic plan for your beloved. Maybe you’re simply trying to find a way to ditch nerding out with your textbooks on a Saturday night.

No matter the reason, you are not alone. Join all the coolest partiers in town at the Lawrence Hall of Science Plaza every Saturday 8:00-10:00 p.m, until March and from 9:00-11:00 p.m. beginning April. Not only will you get free access to telescopes, you will also get to speak to astronomers and learn about our vast and vivid galaxy. Bill Nye, our favorite science guy would be so proud!

Long story short, many students who cannot afford out-of-state tuition are hastily and spontaneously getting married (and divorced consequently) in order to gain in- state tuition by claiming themselves as independents. read more »


UC Berkeley students began their Friday evening with an urgent email from faculty, embellished with capitalization and one too many exclamation points, asking us to take a survey to help plan the B.E.A.R (Bringing Energy And Revitalization to Sproul) initiative. Are we as ecstatic about the new program that seeks to renovate and establish new services to the Sproul Plaza side of campus as they are? read more »
