My life sucks! I’ve been working so hard to come to Cal, and my parents don’t understand this isn’t high school anymore. In high school, I took hard classes, but there wasn’t nearly as much competition as here at Berkeley. They just don’t understand that I can’t get straight As anymore. They’re going to freak out if they ever see my report cards. Can I make it so they can’t see my grades? I don’t want to lie to them! Help me please.”

I just don’t understand. I was close friends with someone last year, and now we don’t even talk anymore. How can two people share so many wonderful memories and disappear the next? Should I try to reconnect with this person or would that be awkward?

"I am feeling burnt out right now and could use some time to myself. The problem is that I am an extrovert by nature and people have gotten used to me having my dorm room door open and just stopping by. It's already difficult enough living with so many other people, but now that the stress of the semester is high, I'm overwhelmed. What are some ideas that I can use to get some alone time?"

Seeking New Wellness Ambassadors for Departments or Work Units Career Development Workshops Through the End of June

April 18, 2017

Lab Week is our chance to let people know about our lab staff’s dedication and commitment to professional, quality patient care.

Since lab professionals often work behind the scenes, few people know that the critical testing they perform every day saves lives, reduces morbidity, and helps control the cost of care. Today, with advances in analytical science and automation–and as cost pressures reduce patient stays in the hospital–the work in the laboratory is more important than ever.

University Health Services, Tang Center will have limited services on Friday, April 21 due to a PG&E power shutdown. We will remain open. Current appointments scheduled for Friday will still be held unless you have been otherwise notified. If your health needs can wait, please schedule any non-critical services for other days.

"First day of classes I formed a study group with 2 other people. It feels like a good fit bc we get a lot done and I trust their work habits. The problem is that one has a slight BO {sic: body odor} and it makes me not want to be around them at times. I'm not sure what to do. We aren't really friends so I don't want to offend and possibly lose out on a good study partner."
