Every year, USC students travel up to northern California when the Trojans play Stanford or Cal and this year Maria, Hannah and I road tripped to Berkeley, CA! This was my first weekender trip every and going with them made the 6 hour drive seem like nothing.

My best friend goes to Berkeley so she let us crash at her place for the weekend. It was so nice seeing how different colleges and living situations can be!

We drove up Friday morning bright and early and got to Berkeley around noon, and then explored Berkeley for the afternoon! We even bought our Halloween costumes up there since it was halloween weekend and we still were without costumes.

Then finally it was time for GAMEDAY! Since the game started at 12:30 we were all up bright and early for Tailgating! All of the tailgating at Berkeley happens on the Row which was so different from the massive amounts of tailgating that happens at USC. (thb USC does it better). And then we went to the game!

We survived the weekender!! #beatthebears

It was so great seeing all of my friends at Berkeley with a full student section cheering on the Trojans! I can’t wait to go back to Nor Cal next year when we play Stanford!
