Undergraduate Scientist Association at Berkeley
Purpose: UGSA seeks to bring together the undergraduate scientific community through social, academic, service, and pre-professional events. We believe that in the short term, this would enrich the college experience for all science-majors, exposing them to friends with a diverse set of scientific interests. In the long-term, this will set up an inter-disciplinary mentality, so necessary to tackle the pressing scientific problems of the future. Secondly, UGSA seeks to set up an environment wherein students can help other students. Being a science major at a huge public institution can be quite daunting, as there are tons of other students within the same major and limited resources to provide guidance. To this end, we seek to set up an organizational structure that will allow students to help each other find research opportunities and get academic/career-related guidance, both formally and informally.
