Do you have an interest in food and sustainability? Well, look no further. Food, Culture, and the Environment AC is the class for you. Yes, I realize I sound like an attempt to sell something. But, honestly, it was one of the most eye-opening classes that I have taken since coming to Berkeley.
During the last school year, I had made so many plans for the summer. One of those things was taking summer courses while working as a UC Ambassador. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, I was unable to work on campus anymore, but I could still take summer courses online. By the middle of Spring 2020, I had decided that I wanted to get rid of the American Cultures (AC) course requirement by the university. The name “American Cultures” never really came across as something that was going to be interesting. Rather, it seemed more of a chore to take. So, I had no idea how much I would enjoy Food, Culture, and the Environment AC.
