My name is Anna. I’m a third year undergraduate at UC Berkeley. Throughout my time at Cal, lecturers have consistently been the professors who have actually cared and invested in my academic experience, going above and beyond for their students despite not getting fairly paid for it. The relationships and mentorships I’ve developed with lecturers as an undergraduate have been in invaluable part of my academic journey here at Cal. A June 30th layoff would mean a devastating loss to the quality of my education.
