In the presence of Nobelists

Berkeley was my first chance to live on my own. Besides getting a world-class education, I learned how to become a self-sufficient adult. I also had the opportunity to take classes from three Nobel prize winners — Dr. Glenn Seaborg in chemistry, Dr. Melvin Calvin in chemistry, and Dr. Emilio Segre in physics. What other university could offer a student that level of education?
