Not Just Business


In a typical week, about a third of our time is spent in the classroom, a third on extracurriculars and a third on social activities. Sometime in the middle of Fall B, however, the Haas calendar kicks into overdrive as clubs, midterms, birthdays, and the football season all come crashing together. Here is just a snapshot of some of the events that we’re looking forward to this week - and that you can look forward to as a future student at Haas!

Cleantech Outlook for Latin America, a networking event and panel co-hosted by the Latin American and Hispanic Business Association and the Berkeley Energy Resources Collaborative, will take place this Tuesday to introduce their new initiative, "Renewable Energy Latin America."
