Hey, you guys, I know it's a little dreary out today, but I am hiking up to the rez to meet a couple friends and hopefully get some studying done. So I want to take you guys to the very reservoir, one of the most beautiful sights on our campus. While we hike up there, I want to use this opportunity to get to tell you guys just a little bit more about Barry. I guess about our size if you haven't been able to tell just yet. While we may be a huge campus with over twenty seven thousand acres, we're pretty small in our student body. Each classic Mary only has about five hundred people, meaning our total undergraduate school is only about two thousand people. I think this is really good for Barry, and I think it provides us a lot of valuable things that you can't really see or get a state school or any really large institution, for that matter. Because the class sizes are so small here, you get to really form these connections with your professors, you know, while a smaller, like a larger state school. When you come to take your foundations and your introductions, you're going to be in your basic chemistry class or your basic math with probably one hundred hundred fifty plus people. They bury your only there with about thirty of the people. That way your professor really gets to learn who you are. They know that if you're having any problems, they know what they're able to help you with. There's also other ways we can benefit from this. Our professors are required to have ten office hours a week. So this means that your professors, like, are required to sit down in their office and have time open to any student who needs help or just wants to learn more about the subject in general. I think what's really cool, too, is that some of our professors and their office hours don't even make them. I had a lit teacher last semester because she knew that so many students were busy during the day. So this is one of the things I really like about these small classes, and they get smaller too, as you go in your majors. I've been in a class with, I think, seventeen people so far, and I have a friend who's in a class with only like nine people. You know, you really the foreign, these connections with your professors and have more intimate discussions and question and answer sessions with them. I think it's really good for academic and just life in general.
