One of my dorms on myself for a year was almost $6,000 for something similar, a double room with a bathroom. So it is definitely a lot cheaper to stay here. And then, in addition, there's about 10 local students or less that live in my house as well s 01 of them is read over my roommate, who you've either will see the interview later, or if you've already watched it, then you've met her.

It's included, but like breakfast in the morning, I'm gonna show you everything that's in my house. We have condoms and everything like that. So just follow me on my do politics beforehand. The hallway lights are and environmentally friendly energy saving lights. So the old dark until you walk by the lake of luxury like turn on when you walk by here we have, like, a little common area.

So for appliances in the eye house, common room, we have a microwave toaster. We have a sink that comes with soap and sponges. We have our water far fountain again that has warm cold in hot water. And then we have a communal fridge. Yeah, that's an overview there. It's important to note that we don't have a stove, so we're not actually a lot toe cook Here. Here are the rooms. Every floor has a laundry room on. We just have one washer and dryer per floor. It costs 10 pennies dollars to use it, which is roughly about 32 cents. So each time you washed your clothes and dry your clothes is about 32 U. S. Sense. So we're going to take the elevator and I'm gonna go downstairs to our reception dust, and our reception desk has a security guard from 8 p.m. Too eight or 9 a.m. in the morning. In addition, there's always like a receptionist during the day or sick or the security guard at night. So you always have to sign in visitors whether they're coming or not. And they always know he's coming in tiles. Who's not. So my friend Ming, he's a security guard is down there right now, so he's going toe. You'll meet him, see why he loves working at my house. In addition to hearing some of the rules about my house from him. Yes, I'm alone. Okay, so here we have a litter is gonna click on the first floor. It's always nice here way Have, uh, just notices about what we can and can't do. And also like upcoming events. You can see here that the visiting hours are from 7 a.m. to 11. PM 10 50.

I would say that like, Ming is definitely one of the most friendly faces here at the reception desk. So always know that you can, like, you know, always find a friend in May. So this sounds really cheesy, but he, like, truly caress for, like, safety and wellbeing and everything like that. You guys have to leave the common area. I always ask. I always ask you guys to leave in the common area lightly because you're going to treat you guys like adults, not three years old. Kids. Yeah. Yeah. Politely in treats us as equals and uber that's for me. That's nothing you can get over eat from here.

I houses if you have your own like room card and you skin it on the keypad outside. All right, well, that's about it. Thanks for taking my house tour Nice. 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. 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. 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
