You already know that you’ve come to the greatest university in the world.  Cal’s world reputation for academic excellence may have even been the reason that you decided to become a Golden Bear, but what Cal has to offer goes far beyond academics.  Since Cal’s charter in 1868, the university has united through its exceptional traditions, rivalries, legends, and historical experiences. With this semester of the Cal Spirit DeCal, we will explore the various aspects of the university’s history that make up the Spirit of California, including its spirit organizations, athletic teams, songs, and traditions. By the end of this course, we hope you gain a higher appreciation and love for the spirit that makes our university.  

How to Enroll:

This is a two unit course that will last for 15 weeks, with 1.5 hours of lecture each week. Each lecture will cover a different aspect of the spirit of the University of California, and will feature a speaker with personal experience or expertise in the topic, including faculty, staff, alumni, and fellow students. Additionally, students will be expected to complete all required readings, write a brief term paper, take two midterms, and be prepared to ask questions and engage in group discussions while in lecture.
