Green Means Go...To The Lawrence Hall of Science

LHS Logo.jpg
The Lawrence Hall of Science (LHS) has a new logo! Based on the octagonal shape of their iconic building, the logo evokes a myriad of elements -- children playing, celestial bodies, molecular structures, as well as geometric patterns. The dynamic shape and green color are sure to inspire kids and adults alike to have fun doing science.  
The new logo isn't all that’s green -- the Hall is a leading developer of science curriculum for use in schools and out-of-school programs. This spring, the Hall is rolling out green science kits for its AfterSchool KidzScience program. Also this spring, visitors to the Hall can build and test a model solar house in the Ingenuity Lab, see how deep-ocean creatures survive under extreme conditions at the Creatures of the Abyss exhibit, experience a planetarium show on how Nasa's Kepler mission is discovering strange planets, or sign up for a summer camp.
Even the youngest visitors will get a chance to be a scientist for the day as they make observations, ask questions, and test their ideas. Learn more about current exhibits and activities at, visit our store to get some great new Hall gear, and join in the Hall's Cal Day festivities on Saturday, April 16, 2011.

Making a Difference @ Cal brings top ranking!

UC Berkeley has been recognized as the top university in the country for its contributions to society as measured by Washington Monthly's annual college guide and rankings. 
"Unlike U.S. News and World Report and similar guides, this one asks not what colleges can do for you, but what colleges are doing for the country," say the magazine's editors. "Every year we lavish billions of tax dollars and other public benefits on institutions of higher learning. This guide asks: Are we getting the most for our money?"
When it comes to UC Berkeley, and the University of California in general, the answer appears to be a resounding "Yes." Berkeley was ranked first among 258 national universities. UC San Diego ranked second and UCLA third, followed by Stanford (4), the only private institution in the top 10. UC Davis was ranked tenth, followed by Harvard (11) and MIT (12). UC Riverside (16) and UC Santa Barbara (21) put six UC schools in the top 25.

Now Open: ASUC Welcomes Tully's Coffee!

Tully's logo resized.jpg

Coffee anyone?  Thanks to the student-led Store Operations Board, Tully's Coffee, was selected to install a kiosk on the second floor of the MLK Jr. Student Union Building.  Intially, the coffee kiosk will be open Monday through Friday 6am - 9pm.  Weekend hours are yet to be determined.

Drinking coffee can be sustainable...not only will the ASUC's new coffee vendor provide a variety of coffees, drinks, and snacks, but the coffee will be served in compostable cups!
Students will benefit since a percentage of sales will go directly to student programming, groups, and other organizations. Who knew drinking coffee could be so good?
The area will also feature student study areas and outdoor tables and will integrate with the ASUC's Cal Student Store.


Look for additional information about plans to expand the cafe hours and offerings, such as hosting lectures, presentations, events, etc.
