Why Berkeley

Why Berkeley

[MUSIC PLAYING] One of the great
things at Berkeley is that we attract
really the best and the brightest
in the faculty. We have leading edge scholars
in every single field that we teach. There’s just tremendous
intellectual energy in the school, and I think
that will always carry over to the students who are
taking their classes. I applied to Berkeley because
I love that culture of passion and innovation and
entrepreneurship that it offers. I’m accustomed to
being around people who are really fast
thinkers and have new ideas and they’re pushing
themselves really hard to become someone who
can make an impact. Everyone has great ideas,
everyone is creative, and everyone is
accepting and wanting to learn from everyone
else and push people. You’re really working at
a world-class institution with the best professors
that you can work with. UC Berkeley is one of the top
universities in the world, and it is absolutely
a premier institution for high-level teaching
and high-level research. We really are experts in
each of our own areas, and we’re people
who are committed to not just going out and
doing cutting edge research, but being able to teach that–
being able to convey that to others so they can go
out and solve real problems.
