Birgeneau to Arrive Earlier Than Expected
Berkeley Press Release
Chances are simply that Birgeneau just wrapped up his business at the University of Toronto early, and wants to get right into the swing of things at Berkeley. But, what would CalStuff be without the ability to speculate with quasi-success? So, the question of the hour is what would drive Birgeneau to get to Berkeley earlier? Perhaps it is so he can obtain the new issue of the Heuristic Squelch, which was distributed in record numbers today.
More likely, however, is that Birgeneau wants to get the current "loose ends" tied up early. These loose ends include:
- The current spat between the OSL and ASUC
- The general dislike of Dean of Students Karen Kenney
- The current vacancy at Athletic Director
- Firming up official UC Berkeley stances on issues like raising admission requirements, the renewal bids for Los Alamos and LNBL, etc.
In any event, it seems as if Birgeneau will be here in time for Cal Football's second home game. An acid test for future performance would be to see if he goes to more than just one or two games this season.
Edit: Chances are, Birgeneau won't be coming to many games. A former employee lashes out.Email This Post!
