Cal Bears Say Hi

The CalBearsSayHi campaign invites us to slow down long enough to make contact, say “Hi” to other students and enhance your sense of belonging and community.

Social support is all-important to our health and success. Studies confirm what many of us know about the benefits of having friends you can confide in, laugh with, cry with and hang out with. Having campus friends and acquaintances translates to lowered stress levels, a heartier immune system, and an increased ability to concentrate and learn.
