For Ankur Nagpal ’09, his first day of CalSO (the orientation for new UC Berkeley freshman and transfer students, now Golden Bear Orientation) was also his first time in California—and America. Ankur was born in India but grew up in Oman, and it wasn’t until high school that he decided to pursue his college education in the United States.
“My dad had the idea for me to study in America because it was something [my parents] had wanted to do, but never did,” Ankur says. He applied to many different schools around the country, but ultimately decided to go to Cal.
