As a blogger for Caliber Magazine, I developed “The Berkeley Calendar,” a recurring weekly feature that gives brief descriptions of various events happening around the Berkeley campus. I came up with this idea because I realized that there are often many interesting guest speakers on campus, ranging from an editor from The New York Times to the first female astronaut Sally Ride, that students often overlook because they do not know about the events. These guest lectures are enlightening and allow people to gain a deeper understanding of a certain topic. Having these guest speakers on campus are a great feature and asset of the Berkeley campus, and I wanted more students to be aware of them. Each week, I culled department websites and the Berkeley’s Events Calendar for events of potential interest from various fields and post them to the site.
