Hey, guys. So this is Coram. Corum is one of the research facilities on campus. I think this is one of my favorite places to do work on campus because there's a giant computer from in there and there's full of a lot of computers. They're like apple computers, and they're really fast and efficient for me to get a lot of my work done for pre med. It's also like directly next to Carnegie. Carnegie is the science department building on campus, house of the bio department and everything else in there and physics. It's amazing. It also has a greenhouse in there that's full of beautiful animals and trees. It's so amazing at the top on top floor of Carnegie and which is right next to forum. So yeah, so as far as academics go abates like you person. I personally feel like that's one of the most best academics that I've ever received in my life. I have I feel like that. I've definitely grown as far as my education as far as my understanding of the world. And, ah, a lot of the way the base academics go. It's very challenging, but at the same time, It's like very, very intense. And it pushes you to go outside your comfort zone because you to really try and make an effort to do things efficiently. And I really appreciate that for school on us for anything. But again, this is just one of my favorite buildings. Also that I just love Tio, Go and be No living life, really. About wait life first year, it's Sam's double major and I love it here. I like he's such a great school and it's the perfect school for me. That's really then we have a building where over there. Where? So have I? How? What better than that? Yeah, I was upstairs right now. Your house. Fun with your okay, guys back. So now this dorm eso it's great. Hi, association. And so night they donated ten million dollars to build these two new dorms. And this is one of the new door. So I'm going to keep you guys it it and start to show you some more of the new door and the rest of or to hear from you soon. Hey, guys. So welcome to Bates College, HQ wide or one of our quads. Though the quad is right over yonder by past the core and past the library, this is the quad were normally, if you come as a purpose person as a prospective student, then you get you Essentially, This is where the first stop is for the tours on campus. Well, yonder is. This is the Multi ve chapel where we has a lot of acapella concerts, church. And if you any faith that you or religious belief, or even if you're not even religious, you can go there, meditate and kind of reflect. That's a really beautiful space, but the quad itself is a really a major, amazing time. It's really cold right now because of the snow, but normally, when it's nice and warm, people come out here and sit, do your homework, you get to sit and just lay on a beat, lay on the grass. It's really nice in the fall. It's really nice to play and leaves because, like they really, they make really giant leaf. Powell's her Bates, and we were kind of like to strum on them and take a lot of pictures. It's really amazing, like I really love our quad. Hey, guys. So I am in a pickle. The this is one of the big ground floors and pico it houses over or the maximum number of people in a confined in this room is one hundred and twenty four. Ron, I've had bio one ninety in this course is a one of the bigger lecture halls. During freshman year, when I was taking by over ninety, it was about sixty students in this class for eight AM nine thirty, it was a similar ten and eleven, well, ten, fifty and eleven o'clock courses they were about. It's relatively the same size courses. There's normally for, like big science courses or other things that, like it's a classroom, has a lot of students. You've been also, when costumes aren't being used in this room, this room can be used. So just like any other room on campus could be reserved for clubs or special gatherings or events that she wanted Teo, all you would do is go online on the Bates I did to you and find and click reserve a room online on Bates. But essentially many people, these romance and many uses. These people are all that studying here and do homework for finals. And then there we have class, so yeah, Today. Wait. No. I know in the moment. Yeah, It's definitely a lunch food. Thank you. All right. This is our dining hall. It's called Commons. We have one of the best dining halls in the country. And an abundance of space to sit in. Beautiful. All right. Yeah. Violated. Also, like get back. What? No. Bang, is it? I will. What? Yeah. Hey, guys. So the weather in Maine, Okay, everyone, I'm basically like, Oh, my God, it's so pretty. It's so pretty. Which true, in fact, the weather here is so pretty. Everything is really nice. But the Weather Mother Nature in Maine, period is bipolar. I am from Philadelphia and like, I like the way I get my four seasons, you know, I love the Four Seasons. But main, they now justice to extreme, like, Okay. For example, freshman year I went Apple picking with the Bobcat first mom, which is like the first ten generation college club on campus. We went Apple picking for a little program that we were doing. And while going Apple picking which at this farm, which is like a little like ten five minutes away from Bates by a car, it snowed and hailed and rained and got sunny all in amount of one hour of us being there. We were there for an hour and it snowed and rain and hailed all in one hour. And then the sun just kept coming back out like it was like back to back. I'ma let that sit and marinate for you guys. I'm just going to let that marinate for you. I do love the weather, but man is Bob Hohler don't wanna buy it, so everything else is bipolar. But yeah. Come debates, you know, enjoy the bipolar weather, you know, and join me in my body and my Hey, guys. So we are at the pond. This is our wallets frozen in the winter time it gets frozen over. And a little Bates tradition thing is that they decide. Tio, this is Olin behind me, by the way. But abates tradition is that they people they cut a little box into the ice and then people jump into the puddle. Yeah, dead of winter on negative degree weather. I'm you and I will not be doing that. But I have friends who have done this, and I've watched people do this, but I will never have. Your income. One of the main dining halls. College campus about number nine, No college. Really good. We have servants. So this is my Hey! I have my favorite, which is horse. They're better than any chicken patties there. Really? Yeah. Hello. Even no sorry right now. But especially. And that's our thing. Hello, campus. Really? I'm coming at you with a little bit of a change of pace left campus earlier today and went one of the many state parks and wildlife preserves scattered through Central and Northern. Mean, that's one of the biggest prose going to Bates the fallen Springer. Beautiful filled with times you could just escape campus. This is, uh, this is called Tumbledown Mountain. It's about in hour an hour and twenty away from Bates usually are out in club. We have annual trips here. We have introductory trip for first years and then whatever you want, you can just send an email to the club list, and anyone who wants to join you can join you. It's one of the many pros that come with going to Bates that a lot of people don't really necessarily think about because you can't get these views anywhere else. Hey, guys. So we're in cop Errs hall in my single? Yeah, when I show you guys a little bit of my single because it is messy, it's It's a little messy, just just slightly. Well, actually, now it's very much I'm not going to show you the floor because the floor is messy. But this is my view of my You see, I have a really nice window as a junior, I'm during the housing lottery. When you're assigned housing, you get the cheat once. As a freshman, you basically get randomize. It's wherever they place you based off of one. The little form that she fell out. When you're after, you're acceptance during your all in Porto over the summer and like after that, your you get put in the housing lottery online and you basically choose where you want to live. When your time's a lot becomes available for you to choose. And they'll send you an email and let you know that a scene as a senior next year, I get first pick and then it goes down as you go. For juniors and sophomores. Freshman freshman year I lived in Ran Hall with my roommate Sebastian. And then I got a single in Parker sophomore year Parker is next is on alumni walk, and then after that, I lived here now and I have a single on one of the new dorms. KA Paris is one of the new dorms on campus, and I'm height because, like, I work downstairs also and like, I don't gotta walk anywhere because it's downstairs like it's like Perfect because the bookstores down serious. So I got to do is walk so serious, you know, great. So yeah, this is the dorm situation on campus, like it pretty much anywhere you live is like I'm going to look good like it's J break's pretty good about, like the first Wall. They get everything. It's clean, literally every day except for the weekends. It's really not like they take care of the campus really well, for even on the off campus house is still everything is still pretty good. You're going to you never knowing if you have a problem with where you lived, then they're more than happy to find you somewhere that you couldn't so that you're
