CAL move in day

Cal Move In Day

Today is the day.  Today, finally, Jessica is officially moving out of her nest and ready to venture a new chapter of her life independently.  She is moving into her dormitory at UC Berkeley.  We left early to beat the crowd … still, there was already a line when we got there.  She’s got a ‘triple room’ in the Ehrman building of Unit 2 student housing complex.  A little crowded, but the view from her room is priceless.  She’s got the ‘million dollar’ view of the San Francisco Bay that could be the most precious and expensive view we could ever afford in our live 😉  View on the other side (from the Study Lounge) is almost as gorgeous. UC Berkeley did an outstanding job of managing the students moving in process. It was smooth and very organized.  We also had the opportunity to eat free for the day :-)  UC Berkeley provided free breakfast, lunch and BBQ dinner for their new residents and family members.  We ate at the ‘Crossroads’, which is a nice and large dining hall near by the dorm unit.

UC Berkeley is an elite school and is located very close to where we live. For us, that is a perfect deal. We are trying to convince Jessica to pick this UC instead of UCLA … to be continued.

Today we attended a presentation by UC Santa Barbara. Boy did they try to sell the school hard or what? Continue reading
