UC Berkeley students have a plethora of options when it comes to choosing an on-campus job. So, what makes a student apply to—and stay at—a performing arts center? What kind of skills do they hone here, and are they relevant to more than just music, dance, or theater majors? We interviewed four of the roughly 75 UC Berkeley student workers employed by Cal Performances year-round to learn more about their perspective on the important work they do to support our organization.
