University of California-Berkeley Top Questions

How often should I phone home? Is once a day too much?


However often as you feel like. Being the homesick person that I am, I usually visit home one weekend a month (or more if I'm feeling down). I skype with my family and talk on the phone and text occasionally in between. Some people are not like me at all, and only go home for Thanksgiving. Some people live at home and commute to Berkeley! Everyone is different in this respect, and although it may not be "cool" to miss home, do what makes you comfortable!


Phone home as often as you need to. I know people who phone home everyday and I know people who never phone home. Its all a matter of what you need and no one at Berkeley will begrudge you that.
