A place where you run a 50% chance of getting your bike stolen, a 65% chance of getting your computer jacked, and 100% chance of compromising on all your conservative values. Still, you will reflect on your time there with the same nostalgia once sung by Bryan Adams- "Those were the best years of my life."
You: I was gone for 10 minutes, came back to my table in the library, and my computer was gone.

Officer: What did you expect? This is UC Berkeley.

Best thing that will happen in your life. Nuff said. If you went to Cal, you know what I mean. If you go to Cal right now, you're the luckiest crowd living the best lives. If you are going to go to Cal, be prepared for the best years of your life. We got brains, got heart, got spirit, and $tanfurd got nothing on us. Go Bears.
Person 1: I need a synonym for "heaven," or "best place on earth."

The best freaking university in the world. Ivy League education for state school price!

aka cal, located right off the sf bay. A pretty nice school, some call us liberals, some call us hippies, but also decent in the ways of engineering and chem, among a few other things, and definitely not ones to brag about it. Sure, i guess were a pretty nice college, but other than that, were just some few mellow folks who'd be down to smoke a joint or chill under the trees on memorial glade
UC Berkeley, yeah....
