bear basics, berkeley, California Student, College, fall semester, University of California Berkeley -

Semesters at Berkeley have 3 phases: Welcome Week, Midterm Season, and Finals. As we enter mid-October, us Cal Bears are in the thick of Midterm Season and, let’s be honest, hardly anything else matters besides last minute studying and essay writing.
