A walk through King Hall + Quick Facts on Amherst
Tour GuideLily Fang
Lily takes us through the common spaces of her dorm and talks about the size, location, and weather of Amherst. Amherst is a small liberal arts school of 1800 in Western Mass. Weather can be pretty fickle, but fall is gorgeous with the multicolored foliage.
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I also wanted to take you on a quick walk through my door so you can see what it looks like when it's not just my room. So we have to be a little bit quiet because again, it is a dorm where people are very respectful of noise levels and space. What is the common room? And so this is basically just a space where we can have group events. People can study and there when there isn't anything going on. Since this is a culture House will use the space for a trivia nights or quiz nights, sometimes for films. We used the common room on the first floor when there are things like crepe nice. Let's just happens twice here, and it's just really an event that the French house puts on where the entire campus is invited and we just share a little piece of French culture. So that's just the space right here and before we had. I probably should tell you a little bit more about the college itself. You haven't flown here and don't even know necessarily where we are. Amherst College is a small liberal arts school of only about eighteen hundred people. Like four to five hundred people of class, we're located in western Massachusetts, and so the weather can be pretty fickle. I'm from Columbus, Ohio, and so things were like, basically what I grew up with right now. It is May. But it was not like this even two days ago. On Sunday, it was maybe between thirty and fifty, and today is Tuesday, and it's between seventy and eighty. We've had a lot of weird snowstorms this month. It is beautiful and when it is sunny, it is gorgeous. I would just say that like, what makes Amherst special is just the intimacy of the campus. Since there are not a lot of people are campus is pretty small. So my dorm is one of the furthest storms from Maine, like the main campus area. I'd say it's only like five to seven walk from any seven minute walk from any like important building were actually really close to the science buildings. Um, and then the further stories I would say, is about a ten to fifteen minute walk, and so that makes really just living a lot easier because you don't need to worry about buses are community, and you will definitely run into people. Something that I really like about this campus is just the fact that you will get to know the people.
