Before I take you out for the day. I just wanted to give you a quick tour of my room. I live in the dorm called King, which is called a thesis storm because a lot of upperclassmen live here, and so it's pretty quiet and people are able to get their work done. It's also what is called a culture house. I live in specifically the French house, which is a florin king. And what happens is that three ta from France coming to year and live with us on we speak to each other in French. On DH. There are actually a number of culture houses across campus based on language or culture or arts or cooking. And so that is definitely an option for you after freshman year. A lot of people do that just so they can live with people who have similar interests and often times. If you live in a culture house, you're almost guaranteed a single. And so I live in a single and I'll just take you around. Let's start from the door. I can see I have a mirror here. My closet is here and then I have these shelves for my clothes. This is probably my least favorite part because I don't really have drawers. So kind of the mess is in my face. I also have more shelves, Really long desks, Uh, standard college bad. Nothing too fancy. Just a twin size. Some people will switch them out, but it is a lot of work. Uh, and then finally, I have, ah, window with a pretty nice view. A field. I also wanted Teo share this couch because I'm super proud of it. It's a couch that actually didn't come with the room. I got it for fifteen dollars at a local thrift stores. So that is an option for you if you want to buy a couch for not too expensive, but yeah. So basically, that's just a quick little round up my room. Next thing we're gonna do is take you I just happened to be in another dorm to pick something up from a friend. So I figured I show you what it looks like. Uh, this is definitely a more typical dorm style. I'd say this is what a lot of the freshmen dorms will look like. Though this is itself is not a freshman dorm. This is called Morrow, and it's just right next to the dining hall as well. And so you can see it just looks a little bit newer. A lot of white space is This is the common room. I was just in this little study space of the white board, just a quick little tour. I'm feeling pretty nostalgic is the senior, So I just wanted to go up and see my room from the summer as well. I was in this room here, which is actually a two couple. And so that means that it's basically two rooms that are connected, and so you have to go through one room's gets the other, so it's not like you have to walk all the way through. It's only just threw a little corner on DSO. Greenway is particular for that reason. There something's like two room doubles and sweets. Oh, and this is the common space on the floor that I was living on. And that has a really nice view. A little mountain range. On campus. I think I'll have to modify the lighting. Ah, there we go. I don't know if you can see it very well, but There you go. You can see the little mountains peeking out from the forest. And so you, Alice, is a really nice base. That is definitely conducive. Working. There's a lot of common faces, a lot of nice views. And it's really just on a decent part of campus that it's a little bit further. It's really close to my king. So it is more or less in five to seven minute walk to the main campus as well. But what is nice about it again? It's that there are so many common spaces. No, there's air conditioning. There are a lot of kitchen as well, so I will take you on the outside and you'll see that Greenway, C and D are connected by bridges bridges. There are tensions, and so that makes life very convenient On just because my camera is annoying and won't let me turn it around while I'm filming. I'm just going to give you a quick little pan of, oh, my room Looks like when my face is not in the frame And, um you can just get So this is what the greenways looked like on the outside on you can also see there's a common space where people are performing, hence the loud crying and everything. And so those are my Those are the two Feast. This storm's quote unquote over their king is the one on the right. And this is just generally in a more secluded part of campus because we're basically on the outskirts of all the academic buildings.
