The moment I got in the bus I knew it was going to be hell. Not because I don’t like my classmates, but because when I don’t sleep for eight hours straight, I get cranky and in a very, very bad mood. As I sat down next to my friend Annanicole, I knew I was screwed. All I wanted to do was sleep, and all she wanted to do was party. We started having a normal conversation when she took out a little red bag, her guy friend had given it to her. We were both so excited when opening it, not only because it was super cute, but because there was candy in it. We ate most of it and I instantly regretted it. We were both really hyper, we were in a sugar high. About thirty minutes went by, when we were both asleep.
A few hours later, we had arrived to Berkeley, our first university! At first, I was a bit cranky, but then as the tour started, everything changed. It was such a big school, I loved it. I loved how they had their own little inside jokes, from “Berkeley hours” to “Don’t step on the seal or you’ll fail your first semester!”
After this trip, I know I want to go to a university. I just don’t know which one. The university that we visited and loved was UC Santa Cruz. It was beautiful. In all of the universities we visited, I could only picture myself attending Santa Cruz and Cal Poly. In UC Santa Cruz, I know I would be successful. I could basically create my own major and feel very comfortable with my surroundings. Cal Poly was small and reminded me of High Tech. I love how their saying is “Learning by doing” just like High Tech. I know if I went here, I would be successful. UC Santa Cruz is beautiful, but since Cal Poly is closer to home, I think Cal Poly is now my #1 choice.
