While things probably aren’t as bad as the above video, there’s still a travel warning that’s relevant to all you spring-break-in-Mexico’ers. As dean of students Jonathan Poullard puts it, “Accordingly, UC Berkeley strongly advises against travel to Mexico during Spring Break. We encourage students to discuss your travel plans with family, friends, and other concerned parties as appropriate.”

What’s the big deal? Well, maybe this, or this or this or this. So take care next week and don’t do anything stupid.

Editor’s Note: Due to ridiculously high traffic all day Friday, the Clog was sporadically down for much of the day. Thus we resorted to Twitter for all of our occupation coverage. The above slideshow is a culmination of all the pictures we posted on Twitter taken by various Daily Cal employees. What follows are the highlights from our Twitter coverage. You can expect a more comprehensive post later.

dragfabulousBright-eyed, bushy-tailed Cal Day students may be crushed to learn that the tweedy old academics that manage our university don’t often sanction events of a sexy exciting nature. But this Friday night, the Foothill Dining Commons play host to a contest to end all contests: Berkeley’s Next Top Drag Performer.

Blink, if you will, at the thought of a platoon of drag queens descending upon that drab northside haunt. Personally, we can’t think of a place that needs it more.

The event proposes to be a “gender bender dance/drag competition” that celebrates the risqué, the provocative and the titillating. read more »


Dean of Students Jonathan Poullard e-mailed the student body this evening to tell us to play nice with USC fans. The USC game has always been tense as of recent times, but we can control ourselves just fine, right? It’s easy to play by Poullard’s rules:


* Set a positive example both in and out of the stadium;
* Show respect for yourself, your team, and your university by demonstrating respect towards all around you;
* While you alone are responsible for your actions, you do have the opportunity to set a positive example for others

Right?
