Hey, also, I'm right now standing in the middle of the quad for the dorms. So this is the freshman dorm quad. So right behind me is Anderson and Centennial, and over here is Let's haul. So basically, Anderson Centennial on Let's are actually all connected if you can see by the hall wakes and they're broken up into different style homes. Most of the people who live and Let's haul actually are part of programs like You scholars and Washington mentorship. And then over here at Anderson Centennial Anderson are for is mostly for kids who were in university college programs and as well as Centennial Hall, actually being the sweet style housing here on a campus. So I'm going to talk about roommates in this video right now. I currently live off campus, so I have four roommates, which sounds like a lot. But trust me, it doesn't feel like that. I love living with my best friends. I met two of them from my floor, just like I said, and when a video was just like hanging out, Got to meet them randomly. Um, and that's how we became friends. The other one I met through one of those girls. So then we became friends through the mutual friend and then the last room. May we actually met randomly because are the fifth person who's supposed to live in the apartment. And that's France Rain. So we had to get somebody really, really fast filling the spot, and I end up, end up loving her. She's when my best friend. She's totally awesome, and it ended up working out really well. But for freshman year, I am a soft, warm, lots of live off campus, but for freshman year you have to live on campus and one of the dorms and neck. So I didn't have a roommate my freshman year. I don't really know how I just was never assigned a roommate, so I never got when I lived in a double room like a shared room. So there was two beds and everything, but I didn't have a roommate. But for a lot of people, I know they went random. I went random, like, technically, I did go over And, um so I personally my random because you can choose to go random or you can choose the person you want a little bit. But I chose to go random because I assume that whatever expectations I would have going in would have just changed, because a lot of people don't really tell the full truth, like whether their mess you're not. You know, a lot of people want to admit how messy the art, and it's really hard to like, really gauge a real person when you're just faced with messaging them there may be meeting them online, So I just went random and the two other girls that lived on my floor, they lived together and they went random as well. And now, like we're all best friends. So it does work out going random. But if you're a little skeptical about that There are You can meet people on Facebook. There are like you Whatever your you are groups s O that is available If you want to like, meet your roommate before they choose your roommate. But I recommend going random because you know, little venture And then also you don't have any high hopes I'll Hi. Welcome to my crib. If you can't see, everything is virtual. We have my roommates room right here. So out of the room and then my side of the room. Wei have joerres a little apartment right here. Best a cubby and then underneath the bed. I don't want to pick up my bed underneath that. There's a little place where you could put extra stuff in there. The bathroom's over here. And you have a shower and end of that room. You are two things, sir. Here is very spacious. Toe put, like cleaning supplies and your extra person. All right, So now let me show you my door, Like you said this year gets a card skin. So the first thing you have to do is put your card in this lot, which turns on all of your lives. Wei, have a nice mirror right at the door here. And this is the view of my dorm. So to our right here, we have our bathroom. So our bathroom has a shower here. A toilet. Thank you. Know all the essentials of the bathroom. It's really nice having our own bathroom so we don't have to share a communal. So across from the bathroom, we actually have a closet to share here, which is nice. There's some storage underneath. So this first that in dust is my roommate. So I'm just gonna jump past it and come to my side of the room. So over here we have another mirror here. Sorry. Me Room's a little messy, but I also wanted to keep it in its most natural state for this video. I keep some of my food up here. Andi, all I house rooms come with a mini fridge, so it's really nice to be able to have our own mini fridge and sleep. You know, our food there is well, so I have my own closet here. And so there's a lot of story. He loved it up there and all my clothes. So here I have my bed and then my desk over here. So with the bed, this bedspread actually came with my house, which is really, really nice because I didn't have to buy when I was here. So they gave us a comforter. They gave a sheet, they gave us a pillow and also this pillowcase, which is really communion. I sleep with my head on that side because I like waking up in being able to look out the window here. I hung up, you know, some pictures that remind me of home and just my friends and some pictures taken here. And then this is also like an indigo tapestry made on one of my trips here in Taiwan. So up here we have an a C. It's also a dehumidifier, which is really nice that we have our own made Rita talks about how the normal dorms on campus don't have unlimited athe. They actually have to pay for it, but we do not, which is very convenient Over here, I have my desk space. It's important to know that every eye how storm comes with the phone, you can call the front desk. They haven't used it yet. This is also a WiFi. Every room has its own WiFi on DH. Then here. I just have, you know, some things that are notes from friends also, like really awful calligraphy right here, like me running my name and just other things that we had during an event one today on DH. Then the storage up here is really nice and convenient again. Sorry. So, in addition to the desk, we have some jurors here which are great for storage S O. I keep a lot of my essentials in there. And then we also have a little nightstand next to the bed which comes with a jury as well. Men. For my favorite part, we have our own balcony. So that is a street down there. All balconies have a drying rack here that you can hang up, so you're able to air dry your clothes. I'm really, really lucky to live here in my house like I said there is a wait list to live here. I talk about, you know, pricing and everything in my house tour. So definitely watch that. I love being able to just hang out here. You know what? I'm feeling stressful. Just come out here from some fresh air from studying. So here is a room from me. I also want to know that our room gets cleaned once a month by I house like housekeeping, eh? So they'll come in and clean our floors, clean our bathroom, clean the floors in the bathroom, clean the sink, which is really, really nice and super sweet, inconvenient and thoughtful because I've never lived in a dorm where there's been housekeeping, like from the dorm that comes in and cleans. All right, so thanks for looking around my room. I will see you all in my next video. A campus riel. So, um, this is actually my lounge. It's pretty noisy in there, so I don't want to, like, talk over it, but we can actually take a look. Oh, So this is my loans with people. My lounge. Hey, guys, can you ask a lot of so some dorm room essentials I would recommend you guys to bring the very first one is going to be command strips and command hooks. Most things are life savers in American University of Rushman warns. There made the walls made out of concrete. So what moves the walls? So a lot of stuff doesn't stick to them. So he learned that the hard way when I tried to put it on ly posters and everything that I brought with me and they all spelled out right away. So definitely bring those and also the hooks really helpful for just like keeping things organized. It's really great to have a hook for my jacket. When I came home from class everyday, just hang it ups and it was on the floor, and that definitely helps keep things in order. On the next thing, I would recommend bringing as a coffee machine. I know I cannot live without coffee. I The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is going to make myself some coffee. So if you're similar to me where you need coffee, I would definitely recommend doing that. Buying coffee every single day gets so expensive now, as long as it's unplugged. Most of the time, the IRA's aren't doing anything on doll. So when they do room checks, make sure that unplugged another thing. I would bring us a mini fridge. You don't have to buy from the campus. Yes, you can't buy it if you want to. But I didn't. I had one from a friend and they just wanted to me, which is really nice and really convenient, but definitely find ways you can look online and, like, get like a really cheap one and set up like renting it from campus because they're fridges. Aren't that great either. From just expect personal experience. They weren't the best. I'm the last thing I would recommend. Bringing is a whiteboard. Oh, two more things. First thing is a whiteboard. I would write down my daily tasks on a white board, and it would really help me keep my life together and like, let me know what I had to for class. Now I've kind of switched into using a planner, which I would also recommend using. But if you just wanted, like, a visual when you wake up in the morning, it's really nice to have that. And the last thing I would recommend is to bring Roman I know is difficult. Tto be a college student. And, like, I know, it's difficult to stay healthy and fit and keep that body looking great. A good couple of Rahman is always, like an essential for every collar student. And you're not a college student. You haven't had ramen before. I'm sorry. I don't make the rules, but there's something that I like literally lived off my freshman year. I'm going to talk about the food Morning. Different video, but yeah, heads up. Hey, campus rials. So right now I am in Centennial Hall and Centennial Hall is actually housing for students who are freshmen. And basically Centennial Hall is designed so that students would get a double a bathroom and then another double would be attached to the other side. And I I personally do not live in Centennial, but my friend Shea does, and we're going to go check
