Hello night owls and late-night studiers. I am coming to you from the "Beach Room" in Tolman Hall for psychology, on campus, where I will be spending the night. Not that I will be sleeping, because I am participating in a sleep study about sleep deprivation. So I'll be experiencing an interesting side of Cal all night, and contributing to Cal's famous research reputation!
All across campus, there are boards in the hallways presenting flyers for clubs, events, or research opportunities. It was on one of those boards I found the call for this lovely experiment I am now helping out with. There's always so much fun stuff to do here, all you have to do is look around and you'll find a posting for something; a Russian Art Festival, a dance contest, a sleep deprivation study. The possibilities are as diverse as the student population. Whatever floats your boat, you'll find it at Cal.
While I am here in Tolman, sitting on a comfy couch and fighting my oncoming exhaustion, most of my friends are at the on campus hot-spot, the Bear's Lair. The Bear's Lair is the place to be for those students above the tender age of 21. It's a happening place for hardworking
students to unwind and a hub for the glorious Berkeley night-life.
Me, however, I'm contributing to science! Which I thoroughly enjoy doing. While I'm staying up though, I'm gonna take advantage of the extra hours and pull an all-night study session. So until next time, enjoy your comfortable beds... The "Beach Room" is where I'll be...
