Hello Golden Bear!
Thank you for your interest in the University of California Rally Committee! We’re excited to have you! This year is a year like no other for the committee and for the entire UC Berkeley community. The challenge of this year brings a new challenge to our job as we get creative to preserve the history and traditions of our university alive while keeping up spirits.
We will begin our Welcome Week, the second week of classes on Monday, January, 25th. Fill out this interest form to learn more about the committee and get updates on these welcome week events. This is the only way you’ll stay up to date and be able to attend our virtual events. At these events you will get to know committee members and learn what we’re all about. Also follow us on instagram @rallycomm for other updates and event reminders.
This year’s events include:
1/25 – 8 pm Coffee Chats with the Committee
- Come talk to current members about their committee experience and get to know what we do
1/26 – 8 pm Trivia Night
- Join us for a little competition with some Cal Trivia to test you knowledge
1/27 – 8 pm First General Meeting of Spring
- Join our first meeting of the semester to see what we have going on this semester, learn some Cal history, and meet new faces
1/28 – 8 pm Game Night

1/29 – 8 pm Committee Story Night

At all events you will get to meet and chat with current members of the committee and have any questions about who we are and what we do answered. Don’t feel like you have to come to all events, come to what you can to learn about us and have some fun.
Once the semester begins, in order to join, come out to one of our weekly meetings via Zoom to hear more about us and officially sign up. This semester, there will be no dues as there will be no in person events for the foreseeable future. However, if conditions improve and the campus allows us to safely meet we may have things you pay for on a per event basis for things like food, transportation, etc. We are also making buying a rugby (our official blue and gold striped uniform) optional for this semester. It can be bought when it is safe to do so. This uniform is required for official committee duties.
If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to reach out to our Vice Chair of Membership Eric Manzo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for your interest! We’re excited about this year, and can’t wait to meet you.
