Go Bears

Quick story about something that was awesome to start my day today.

I had just gotten to work and on my way to my office, I saw a lady wandering in the hallway with a map. She was obviously lost, as can happen quite easily in the maze known as the Epic Systems campus. I was in her shoes about two months ago.

I pointed her in the right direction and before she walked away, she let out a spirited “Go Bears!” I guess wearing my Cal sweatshirt today was a dead giveaway for where I went to college. I returned the “Go Bears!” and we went our separate ways.

It’s pretty cool to run into other alumni, especially so far away from Berkeley. Love share=ing a common experience and bond with a total stranger. But really, we weren’t strangers because we are fellow bears :) We make up a community that I am so proud to be a part of.

    Read a huge article in the NYT about Epic. Sounds like you made the right choice for your first job after of Cal.
