Choosing Your Path

Posted by on Aug 24, 2015 | 1 comment

WELCOME HOME! If you are a returning student or this is your first year at Cal, we welcome you with open arms! My name is Sarah Barger, and three years ago I was a freshman arriving on campus for the first time. My family dropped me off, we checked in, moved all of my belongings, my mom cried, and they drove the four hours home that I would only be able to take on breaks and holidays.

When I found out I was going to the Olympics, I knew Thing 1 & Thing 2 had to go with me. You see, they’ve been on a an excellent adventure. And what world tour would be complete without a trip to the most illustrious international sporting event? So, we made our way to London. The two stowaways were great travel companions.
