packing list for berkeley

<p>I'm making my packing list for moving day and I'm using this thread:</p>

<p><a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-life/82285-z-what-bring-college.html?highlight=packing+list%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-life/82285-z-what-bring-college.html?highlight=packing+list&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>(I suggest others use it too)</p>

<p>But I was wondering, are there any things that should be brought specifically for Berkeley that may have been omitted in the list?</p>

<p>Well, the list may not mention that red clothing is in poor taste, particularly the week of the big game against Stanfurd.</p>

<p>Noted. Anything else? </p>

<p>btw when is the big game anyway?</p>

<p>Bring multiple umbrellas in case one gets broken by the intense Berkeley winds during the winter.</p>

<p>Red clothes? Really? I should think that as long as they don't say Stanford on them, you would be fine.</p>

<p>^ You'll be fine wearing red unless Berkeley is playing stanford that weekend (football mainly, but also basketball, baseball, etc).</p>

<p>that's so stupid. red is a freaking color... how self conscious is our school spirit?...</p>

<p>its not self consciousness, it is a impassioned rivalry. Cal singing groups feature songs about the school with the lame 'tree' mascot, we spell their school name with a 'u', they are equally obsessed with battling Cal. This has been going on for the better part of a century.</p>

<p>At the big game last year, the Stanfurd announcer spent most of his time trash-talking Cal. Of course, he was pretty quiet as we trounced them and nowhere to be found, nor were most of their fans still to be found in the stadium, when they handed over the Axe to us.</p>

<p>What good comes out of this rivalry? Compare academics in a professional manner instead of comparing dumb football jocks who are running into each other while gaining unfair advantages over other students...</p>

<p>You've got to be kidding me...</p>

<p>If you are not into school spirit or the teams, plenty of room for you too at Cal. Don't participate. It is a pretty big thing to a sizeable chunk of the population, but one size doesn't fit everyone.</p>
