University of California - Berkeley

How many students does it take to change a light bulb at UC Berkeley?

2,001 – one to demand his right not to change the bulb and 2,000 to organize the strike in support of him.

What says...

Berkeley has always been the American university most known for its liberal attitude and democratic principles. The spirit that led to mass protests and riots in the sixties continues to thrive today and students are proud of the outspoken nature of their classmates and professors. If you are a shy and retiring flower with no opinion on politics and a preference for a cliquey environment, then Berkeley is definitely not the place for you.
