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.

Having campus friends and acquaintances translates to lowered stress levels, a heartier immune system, and an increased ability to concentrate and learn.
