Hamilton — the hit Broadway show that blends hip-hop, pop, R&B and history to tell a diverse new generation the story of the country’s founding — is bringing together incoming students as the heart of this year’s On the Same Page program at UC Berkeley.
To Angela Neally from Long Beach and Dani Goland from Israel, the letter C they were forming on the football field Tuesday night with some 7,000 other new students might have stood for “Ccccccold!” Temperatures dipped and fog swirled around California Memorial Stadium, unlike the warm summer evenings many knew back home. But at about 9:15 p.m., as it finally took shape, there was no doubt what the big C meant to all the incoming UC Berkeley students who created it.
If you’re thinking of driving to work or classes at UC Berkeley on Monday, Aug. 14, getting around and parking is going to be, well… a bear. A big, congested Golden Bear. But you can help make the day better for yourself and others on campus.
