Mckenna lives in an 8 man suite in a building on lower campus at BC, ideal housing for upperclassmen. She has her own bedroom that she shares with her one roommate and there are 3 other bedrooms in the suite. There are two bathrooms and a kitchenette also included in the room. In a freshman dorm, it would typically be just her bedroom and she would share a communal bathroom with the other people on her floor.

Brown University

This is a typical dorm in Andrews Hall. Freshman dorms and roommates at Brown are randomly assigned so there's no way to ensure you get this kind of room (I was #blessed). One of the great things about this dorm is it's right above one of my favorite dining halls (which you'll see in another video). I love my dorm and my roommate and I worked together to make it as cozy as possible!
Here's a look at a typical classroom at BU.

My thoughts on switching to online learning
A lot of students LOVE how diverse AU is. The college, and city, is truly a melting pot of cultures and backgrounds. Downsides? Relying on shuttle and public transport services means you won't always get where you're going quickly, but at least it's cheap!
Lily introduces herself and talks about her current/previous activities at Amherst: orchestra, being at math TA, study abroad in France and England, and writing two honors theses in math and French.

The bike path runs through the woods and offers pretty views at all points, especially in the fall. At 20 miles long, it's perfect for long-distance running, short strolls, and serene bike rides. You can reach a mall complex via the bike path as well as Smith College.
