Hey guys, what's up? I am currently editing this video, but before we jump into it, I want to make sure I point out something really cool and really exciting. My brand new single, a little more than just friends, is out right now on all your favorite streaming platforms. Spotify, Apple music. All of this song was super fun to do in just such a collaborative project. And I worked with some really cool people on it and we tried something pretty new and kind of not like anything I've done before. Definitely check it out. The link will be in the description. Listen to it after this video and let me know what you think and I guess enjoy, Theo. Wait, guys, it's time to say goodbye. Good morning, guys. It is about 80 m right now. My exam is at nine already here because I wanted to get here and to do some studying the exact seat that I'm gonna be taking the exam in because I don't know. I think it helps you remember some things. So just reading over last minute stuff. But today's my first day of finals. I have another stats exam later today, which was much too worried about. So who? Let's kill it. What's up, guys? It has been This is over. What's up? It has now actually been a whole week since I last talked to you guys. And basically what happened in that week as I finished myself more year. It is absolutely insane to think that I am halfway to college. You know, I've been kind of on my job all week doing just about 95 which is a lot for me. So the dining halls are closed now, so which means I gotta cook my own. I wouldn't say that bad of a cook. I just I'm kind of fairly limited. I like fried rice salads, so I'm gonna go down to the kitchen right now. In a minute. Kind of like a mule. Reb ish. I'm gonna make a fried rice either. I think I'll save that one. I'm gonna save her fried rice, and I'll probably do it for lunch tomorrow because I have to pack a lunch now to bring to work because we're being financially smart. We're not buying lunch every day. We are bringing our own. We're packing our own. So don't judge my diet. I'm doing the best I can. But I realized this is gonna be what it's like for the next until January. I am doing my own food room in New York for the summer. And then in Sydney, we usually dining Hall or anything I'm gonna be cooking. So Mark my words, this let this be the start of becoming master shaft. Guys, it's time to say goodbye. I'm leaving. Bastard. I am so sad, but excited Software here is officially done insane. It's Saturday right now, filling this Monday I leave to spend a week. One of my friends in New York is in upstate New York. I think you call it upstate New York on the following Tuesday after Memorial Day is my first day in the city and when I could move into my part in Manhattan. The past few weeks have been so weird, getting everything together and packing of so many different boxes, getting rid of donating so many things have really simplified my life. Like I own like half the things that I did before, which is really nice, and I could make it easy for travel. But it's been like a very weird and like emotional experience. I'm somebody was used to moving around a lot. I would say I'm pretty nomadic in that sense, but still, like every single time to pick myself up and move. It's it's tough. And then at the end of the summer, I go home for one week and then I moved Australia. It's difficult to wrap my head around, but it's been tough to say goodbye to so many people and say goodbye to one of my favorite cities in the world until 2020 which sounds crazy cause I graduated 2021 which sounds so far away but beginning to sound coming close. Anyway, I wanted to do this sort of moving out of Boston log and kind of show you what the end of myself for here was like and sort of show you this insane next few weeks that is gonna be moving to New York City and just starting my dream internship. I'm so side Boston has been the most incredible home for the past two years. I've made so many great memories. I met so many incredibly gifted and talented, genuine people that really it's tough to say goodbye to, but no, I'm gonna be back in January, which is a lifetime, because it's so far away. I mean, it's more than six months, but I'm really excited for this opportunity. That's ahead for me to move to New York and then to Sydney, you never in 1,000,000 years I would actually be getting this chance to live in so many different places since I'm out of school. Now, I really, really want to do a better job of blogging, angering content out quickly and best just for you guys, because I have a feeling these next few months and the rest here are gonna be pretty insane. I have some work to do today. So in honor of celebrating my last few days in Boston, I'm gonna go to one of my favorite coffees shops in the city and just do some work and enjoy it. Guys we're doing is all packed up. It is eight o'clock in the morning and I have to move out. But, like, look, these are my stuff to ship to New York. It was so weird writing my New York address. That was like the first time I realized it like it hit me. Really? Then I was, like going because this past week has been ridiculous and insane, just getting everything together. And it just felt like a typical move out. Just could have done this so many times. This time feels different now, though, having to bring those things to the post office. I have a couple bags. But here's the weird thing. Is everything that you see in this room right now just these few is everything that I own. So I got rid of so many things just to make it easier, because I'm moving all alone. I don't have to buy a lot once I get there, but for now, we just simplified everything and the things some things just shouldn't need to be replaced. You know, like sheets towels like those things. After a while, I have to move out. And of course I did pack of my curate and I don't know well, with a little caffeine in my system, so I'm gonna have to figure out here shortly. I'm gonna help Sam move out. Say, Mr Move across campus for the next few hours. And so I decided to get up early, do my things early, and then so help them out and then head to the airport. Probably pretty early. My flights at three. And it's You know what I had to be out by? I forget they told us so many times. I have to be. I had a ricer in time anyway. Hi. And welcome to Jacobs. Get ready with me in the morning at almost three o'clock, it's 3 p.m. We're gonna start getting ready for our date. You can adopt a little bit of sunscreen on because you were foolish yesterday and he didn't put any on even though he only sat on the sun for about an hour. And it wasn't even that hot. But your skin decided it was gonna play every single game. And now your face hurts, faced hurts. Your face did hurt. Yes, it hurted when I crunched it. Or like you crinkle it like this. And so now what we're gonna do is you're gonna get all this business because it's on Lee, the left side of your face that is hurting. Yeah. And then on Lee this side of your neck, we're gonna be using the I can't even read that called Avoid the lovers like that? No, Andre was French. I feel like all this sudden screen anyone has now is old sunscreen. Like I haven't thought. Okay. And you be. I have no idea what that means. There are two types of UV rays. We're actually gonna add a little bit more onto the palate. Your berth hand. My hand's not burned. Yes, it is. Yes. Remember how I'm moving to Australia. And that's where the ozone is like super thin, inappropriate. Oh, campus really didn't see there. Welcome to my crib. Your Politan University. Today I'll be showing you a freshman dorm here of you. Looks like I live in Sleeper Hall, just located in West Campus, and I currently live in a double. So this is my room, and this is what a standard room here at you. Looks like if you are a freshman over here is our door. I figure we just house on post it notes where we just have, like, things that are friends rode us. And that little quotes that I've hung up throughout this master for things that I like and for inspiration. And then over here, this is my side of the room. This is where I have my desk because I need to do my work. And this is where I get ready and do my hair and makeup and stuff like that. And then over here, I just have some pictures of me and my friends hanging up. Super cute. All taken like this year. So amazing on this is my closet. It's like, pretty small, actually. I don't know if I want to show you the inside. It's kind of messy. Well, this is what it looks like. It's not the biggest. But, you know, you make do with what you have, and then it has some storage of there. Also on that. I've been using a lot of, like, command hooks and command ship thing. So this is death through this top of the desk is like, connected to the death by command stripped, and it's, like, barely hanging on. And then I just hang up like my bags. My command hooks also. Then this is my bed. Uh, it's pretty lofted. I lofted my, like, very top over here. This is my roommate side. Her bed isn't loft it as much as mine, but I liketo have mind super lofted so that I could have, like, extra storage underneath the bed s. Oh, yeah, underneath. Like my matches. I just, like, have a bunch of snacks and mugs and stuff like that, like a bunch of medicine on. And then these are like, the kind of dresser drawers that you get to put your clothes. And and then this little step stool is like, the best thing that ever happened to me. It was literally only like twelve dollars and I got from bed bath beyond and I store like all of my shoes in here, So it's pretty awesome. Yes, yes. Looking with shoes. And then I just used it as, like a stuff still ticket on my back, too. Just super awesome on then. Over here. This is probably one part of my room. It's like this little card that I got to store all my stuff in. So I put like all of my snacks in here, a bunch of tea and then just like some random snacks and some silverware and stuff like that, so that's pretty nice. It's really great. You like. And that over here. This is where we have, like our fridge. Our microwave. I think it's called micro fridge. You can rent from beef, like one hundred fifty dollars a year. Um, I would highly recommend that you get one of these, And then also, I really recommend that you get a Britta because you don't want to, like, be drinking water out of this thing, because it's kind of gross on. Then over here, we also have our toaster, which is illegal. You're not have Tosto way have anyway, so don't tell r a's, but no, it's super nice because I get to cook in my room all, like, make avocado toast like every single day. It's amazing. So definitely get, like a tester and a micro fridge. And if you come over here, this is what our view is. So over there, I don't know if you could see it right there. That is the best Thai place in the world. Go to that Thai place. It's called Thai Dish on. Yeah. This is just what our room overlooks. And all right, now I'm kicking you out. Here's just a glimpse of what Warren Towers looks like, which is one of the freshman dormitories here at Boston University, looking in the heart of campus right next to the College of Communication, right across the street from the College of Arts and Sciences. In there, you have the Starbucks, which is awesome. You have Bosch show, which is like a sushi place way, have Jamba Juice all the way over there and city convenience. So it's really, really convenient. It's what Warren is known best bores its convenience and ease of access to everything. Hi, everybody at St Thank you so much for clicking on this video. This video is kind of a continuation of some sorts with the other video. I did all about my college admissions process and everything. I will link that video in the description because you want to check that out, talk about what it was like applying and why I decided to go to Boston University School I am moving to in about two weeks or so, But today's video is gonna be about all about my shopping slash packing list. So I'm from the West Coast and moving to the East Coast. So I'm not really bringing a whole lot with me. And so I've done a lot of research, tells a different sites, and I've kind of compiled a list here of a bunch of things that people have recommended that they pack or bring. So this can either, uh, have you in two ways. If you are moving a far distance like I am, you should have been about buying these things once you move, or if you're not moving as far, you should definitely bring these things or by these things and bring them as you go hope that this will help you out. It's not really dependent on our specific to this school that I am going to, because I feel like most dorm rooms are all the same, essentially some probably nicer than others. But I think we can all greatly benefit from a bunch of these things, and hopefully this will help you. If I decide to, I will, uh, put together a list, and I'll take that all in the description so you don't have to write notes as you go watching this. You could just check out all those things down there, and hopefully this will help you out a little bit so that any further do let's get started here. This list that I have is just totally random, just a bunch of different things that I found. So there's no like ordered anything of importance, sir. Whatever. Definitely get a foam mattress topper. That's the 1st 1 because turns out a lot of dorm bedrooms aren't exactly support for comfortable, so those matches is probably are very similar to a piece of plywood. I'm so definitely like a match. A stopper will help you out a lot if it'll make, um, your bed feel a little more comfortable. Hopefully, I'm just gonna start, like, listing more things. Um, I have hangers, fan trash can. I think that's something that a lot of people might overlook because you might think it's just provided, But I don't know. You might or might not have a trash can in your dorm room. I don't know, have, like on your like sheets and everything. But a lot of you probably know that I included a rug, just in case the carpet in your firm isn't as nice as you would prefer. I also have a laundry basket because you're gonna need somebody to get all those dirty clothes to the laundry room. Definitely invest in one of those hanging closet organizers because there's so much space in your closet and you really want to utilize as much as you can. You know you can think about everything hanging, But if you had one of those levels at one of those hanging closet organizers at, I think that will really help you out. Definitely invest. I've heard this from a lot of people. You want to get one of those Britta water filters because you'll probably only really have access to tap water on dhe. I've heard that using the filters makes it taste a whole lot more fresh and a lot more better tasting, so I would invest in one of those I've heard. Well, there's new, like Britta filters that filtered as you pour the water. I think that's a better option than as you pour it, like in It filters. If that makes any sense at all, I think the newer versions better. It's all probably getting one of those, and you probably should, too. I am a huge lover of Lance. I really like having planes in my room. Makes me feel really like at home. So I would definitely want you move, find some sort of florist or a place to buy plans. Maybe, like Hardware Store doesn't have to be like a straight up tree in your room. It could just be anything from a little succulent. A little plan. I think it, man. It's a whole new dimension of like comfort, and you're I mean, you are just like sardine into a giant building with a bunch of other people your age, so I think adding a little bit of outdoorsy kind of home five would really make you feel a lot more comfortable. That's just meet up. If you don't have a bathroom in your dorm, you probably want a like a shower caddy towed thing. I've seen a lot of different one summer plastic like summer mesh. I'm no expert yet. I haven't started school yet, so probably end up making a maybe a part like to do this as I really learned, Like what you actually need. This is just the research I've done. Having like a sort of canny holders would really, really help you out because you're going to be traveling to and from the bathroom if you share one with your floor. If you have a fridge in your room, I would invest in Tupperware or like those things that you do. Meal planning is that if you have some sort of access to the kitchen, maybe one day a week you can go cook like a simple meal, and then you can just keep it in that Tupperware and having like in your fridge and then that's it. Quick meals for us a week kind of like meal prepping. I don't know how I like much of the dining hall's gonna vary in like what they offer, But I think having meals for me to prep would kind of add diversity to my diet, but also make me feel a little more at home because it's like what I'm used to eating, you know, like what baked her cooked once I'm back home. Having that would make me feel good. And it's also good to make sure you don't change your diet up too quickly. I think having those kind of things that your body is used having is beneficial, special, easy transition to probably more different tight As you're in college ing, you are broke and you're trying to figure out how to feed yourself. So anyway, that was a long explanation for Tupperware. But I think that's something that'll probably help me out a lot. And you should probably consider, too. You're probably not allowed to hang up a lot of things on the wall, so I would definitely get those command hooks something like that. So in case you want to decorate the wall, I know I really want to put up like Christmas lights or something like that. I have a lot of pictures. I want to hang up and I have, like, a flag. I wanna hang up. And so you're not really allowed to touch the wall or make any sort of holes or whatsoever. I think those command hooks are great option. You'll have to look this one up if you are. School slash storm allows it, but bed risers, I've heard, also are really beneficial because it gives you extra storage space under your bed and in those rooms. It's really, really Grant, so you'll probably want his much storage space as you can get. I'm gonna lift off a bunch of other things I have here. Thes aren't necessarily like big things. You should get the things I've just seen. She probably invested, um, extension cord because you don't really know where the outlets are, as well as one of those outlet things that are expanded like you can plug into the wall but have a bunch of outlets on it. So you're not limited like the one or two let's enter in your room. Was it need a plug in a couple things, a lint brush for when you need to look nice A lock. I don't know. You'll have to, like, lock up. But I feel like I always Whenever I need an actual lock, I don't have one. So it's probably just one just in case. Hand sanitizer, because newsflash you're sharing sharing a small space with a bunch of other people, so you probably won't make sure you stay healthy and clean. Plastic plates, utensils, cups because, well, you're not really gonna have a place to do dishes as unsustainable as this is. We'll probably just want a bunch of plastic plates just row away or paper plates so you can toss because you want to eat in your dorm. But you don't wantto have dishes, because then if you don't have a scene, I have to go to the bathroom like vessels. Weird. This one I've heard, I don't really know. From then I use it or not, I heard to get an iron and ironing board. I guess that's really dependent on what you're doing, Uh, just up maybe a couple times, or to look nice a certain day of the week, or if you have to look nice every single day. The week. It's probably gonna have an iron because your clothes will get wrinkled because they're all trying to fit in this small space. And I think it'll really you look a little more professional. I found a couple things just on Amazon. Really cool in there. Like back to school, like off to college section a little Just tiny blenders that are super duper simple. No idea. Like how well they work but probably worth and 20 bucks or something like that. I think they're probably worth worth the investment again. If I end up doing a part to this video all, like, link, the things that I end up getting like, you know how they work. Um, this is kind of just day free before I figured everything out video. And so we should have let you I know how everything goes. And then, in addition, any sort of desk organizers, anything that you want to bring from home cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, you know all that stuff. But those hopefully or some things that you may be didn't initially consider when thinking about what to pack or bring, I'll put like a master list in the description of everything I recommend. Don't know if I even hit everything in this video, but you should definitely keep searching YouTube and keep searching online just for lists of what people were committed cause the people who have probably been to college and lived in the dorm probably know better than I do right now. He likes this field. Give it a thumbs up and be sure to subscribe to me. I'm gonna be doing tons more videos. I really like these kind of talking ones. It's not usually what I post, but I'm probably gonna do more of them if you have any, uh, questions, comments whatsoever. If you have any recommendations for me and anybody else who is watching this video makes you leave it down. The comments we can all help each other out on with that. I think this video is about done. Thank you so much for watching, and I'll probably we owe you everybody. Thank you so much. You're clicking on this video is the first installment for me in a series. We're calling how to college. It's a collaboration between my friends Geneva and jewels, and their videos will be linked in the description. Make sure you go check those out. Is that they have great tips. They are amazing people who can really, really help you out If you are getting ready to start your college experience or fear and it already and wants just kind of helpful tip something, find my camera is about to die. So we're gonna make this quick. So today I'm gonna be talking about so actually ruined here. If you don't know me, I am a freshman at Boston University. Currently, I am finishing up my freshman year here, and it has been one of the craziest, best years of my entire life. I have learned so much just in the classroom but the classroom spot myself, how we work with others and just kind of where I want to go with my life. But this video specifically, I'm gonna be talking about roommates and specifically finding a roommate finding a roommate is probably biggest fear you might have coming into college. There's kind of a lot of pressure with it, because there's this kind of idea that you're gonna be best friends, that you may have to be identical to your remain, have to have everything in common. You're gonna share everything. Some of that is true. But also I wish somebody would have told me that there's a whole lot less pressure than you may realize that there is. In reality, you're just sharing a space with somebody, and the main concern should have is that you get along with You don't have to be best friends. You don't need to have every single thing in common, but you should have enough in common like your general sleep. Schedule your level of cleanliness when your classes are. You don't need a whole lot of things in common. My roommate and I, we have gotten along great the entire year. I cannot even think of an instance where we've had any sort of like disagreement or anything and honestly, that's just because we are like the same level of cleanliness way have a similar sleep schedule. We are similar enough in personality that we get along. We're different majors from different parts of the country. We don't hang out every single day, but like we just worked so well in the same space. And that's really what you want to be going forward. I think most schools have a sort of Facebook group that you joined. Once you're admitted, definitely take advantage of that. And don't be afraid to be one of those people that just starts conversations. People over Facebook or social media just asking them about themselves. What you may not realize is everybody's in the same boat as you. Everyone is Justus nervous. Everybody has the same butterflies in their stomach. They just want to know people, even if they're not directly saying it. So be that person that reaches out. You don't need to say, like, let's be roommates at first. Get to know a little bit the most important questions, though sleep, schedule level, cleanliness and, honestly, probably like if they drink or smoke. It's a good thing you'll probably want to know, because at least for me, like I would not be able to live with somebody who smokes like I just can't do that smell. You're not gonna be able to separate smell in a room if that makes any sense. Honestly, if anything, if they're messier than you, that's fine. As long as it stays on their side, you'll have to look at it but smells something can't really get around. So that's probably another really important thing. To be honest, when you're talking to people, too, it's really, really easy to say like, Oh, yeah, like I I go to sleep by, like, 10 like every night just because you want to sound like the ideal roommate. But in the long run, you're gonna appreciate so much more if you're just upfront honest with them and be yourself. Don't like paint a picture of who you think the perfect roommate is, because to be the perfect roommate, you are going to be yourself. And so I know Jules, that will be doing a video on roommates and how to like work with them and everything. But I just want to focus on finding a roommate here, find somebody who kind of relates to the friends you currently have. If I remember correctly, I was on that reached out to my current roommate and we just had, like, a very simple conversation. We bonded over like, a couple things. And at that point, we're like any right. It felt like our housing act applications and everything. And I was like, Okay, I was like, I think we'd make great roommates. So we just mutually accepted each other. And you already, like knowing that you're gonna be roommates with someone already. Kind of creates a bond. Talk to them. I know. Over the summer, my roommate and I, we had a Snapchat Street just about, like, every single day. Just kind of like discussing, like, talking about ourselves, too. Don't be afraid to use social media. Don't be afraid to use whatever the university gives you. Uh, I mean, for the record, don't even know if this is something you may even be considering. But I would recommend rooming with somebody who is in the same grade as you. If you're going to freshman year room with freshmen, it's a really good idea because you can share like the experience at the same time. Shared experience is probably one of the best bonding techniques, and so that will really help you in the long run, I guess. Anything additional, you want to think about finding a roommate? I don't know. We talked about If you do wear the same size clothes, would you be willing to share clothes? Because if you're moving somewhere, you're probably not committed to bring your whole wardrobe. So if you find the money has the same size clothes which mean my roommate do like you can just share each other's closet and then a really good thing just to like talk about is like what they're bringing to school. Like I know we kind of delegated. Okay, I'm gonna bring the fridge and stuff. You'll bring the TV working kind of around those things just already gives you a really good relationship to start with. And lastly, the most important thing to remember is that it's not going to be perfect. You are not gonna find the perfect roommate. You are not gonna probably find your future best friend for life. The reality of it is you just need to find somebody who you feel like you can work with and somebody who you feel confident enough in that you're not stressing about moving in. I felt good because over the summer, my roommate and I were talking just like about our lives and what we're gonna bring in stuff just really made the transition easier. All right, so I think that's gonna wrap up this video here. It should go to the description. Check out Gene. Even Jules videos. Those air up now. Really good. They're gonna give some great advice.

Makes u subscript id them. Everything's in the description, and I will see you all very soon for the next installment. All right, I'm gonna talk to you guys a little bit about what it's like to live in the dorms at Boston University. Okay, Boss University's campus is not like a typical campus because we don't have a lot of green space because we're built in a city. So abused campus is actually a really long street called Commonwealth Avenue and all the buildings, classrooms, dorms, cafeterias are placed a long Commonwealth Avenue. The dorms are spread out along calm mave from East Campus toe West campus. And there's a couple in between, Like Warren and Baystate. I was put in West Campus my freshman year, and I had a wild time living there. My roommate, Jing I was never there, so I never had to meet him. But it wasn't all bad. I ended up making a documentary about it, called Jing, Who? Which I will. I made it without him knowing, and I think it's pretty hilarious. I recommend checking it out. It made its way around the Bue Means page. So you know, I'm famous. People didn't recognize me. They'd be like You made that documentary would be like I did. It didn't make that documentary each dorm is a mixed bag. I don't think there's a perfect dorm. I think it's really great to be placed in either. Obviously, I'm a little bit biased because I lived in West, so I love West the most. It's also happens to be the closest to my classes, so I like that. But each dorm has some good and some bad. For example, West campus storms don't have any common areas, which means that you can't do as much social stuff in West Campus storms. But we do happen. Tohave West campus is dining hall below us, which is really wonderful in the winter because you don't have to go outside to eat, which is beautiful. But then there's dorms like East Campus, which has beautiful places to hang out with friends. There's couches on every floor, but you have to walk to go somewhere to eat. There's a lot of great things that happen when you stay in the dorm, stressed from near. Everybody gets an IRA who's really cool and organized the ton of exciting events every month. There several events that you can go to with your floor. I became really close with my floor and we actually hung out a time. We had some midnight snowball fights in the winter, which was super fun. All freshmen are placed in a dorm for their first year, unless your transfer student, where you have the initial option of living off campus. But I personally recommend living on campus, even if you are a transfer. My best friend. Now Quentin was a transfer. He lived on campus, and now he's living with me here. Anyway, me talking about freshman dorm's isn't going to give you the full picture, So come on, I'm gonna take you guys to a freshman dorm right now to All right.

So she recommended that we room together? Yes, exactly. So then we talked online, and then I was in North Carolina for something, and she lives in North Carolina. So we just met up and we're like, Yeah, down. We went to our museum, and it was really great on DH. Then we both like, Yeah, down, don't you? Here in May. Um, let me happy you is really fun.

Living on West Campus? West is best. He still is leased back and baste. It is a gray state area. Hey, all welcome to West Campus, one of the main dorms at Boston University. This who are most fresh put West campus is split into three main buildings. Rich sleeper in Claflin, all of them house freshmen and other grades. Over there is ten nineteen, which is another dorm here. The blow Claflin and Sleeper is the dining hall, which I'm about to go eat at convenience, which is attached to West Campus. And you can buy anything you want here. And it's open until really, really late at night. So perfect for those late night snacks. Here is a lovely you West campus that guts into the dining hall and you can see students coming home from class up there. That needs to be where I lived last. No longer this year's Christopher Riley, a rare animal. This is Nickerson Field, which is huge. It's where most of the sports games were held here on campus. We have soccer football band. Thing is, I don't know. Don't ask me about sports. I'm a theater kid. And you look at Nickerson right now you can see Frisbee practice soccer practice, Dan practice and whatever they're doing over there is too Student Village, where only the most esteemed juniors and seniors live. Some people say that studio he is the nicest house anyone will ever live in. It has a kitchen, a living room, your own bedrooms. I've been in there a couple of times, and it is gorgeous. Also, there's a amazing view from the top floor and has, like, thirty seven floors. It's like a penthouse in New York. Except instead of looking at New York, you get to see people play football, which for some might be dope at West Campus. All the doors have security guard that watch everybody who comes in. This is Joe welcome TTO West Dining used Dining hall is actually rated the top thirteen Out of all universities were pretty cool, but it's pretty cool. What do you like? The food neck honestly variety is the key. This always Yeah, and they have different like fun nights like they had nineties night last year, which was nostalgic in a way that none of us actually remember. Because we were born in like ninety nine. They have like Western Night, which is a cowboy theme. The space night, which is space food. They've underwater food, which is all underwater. Watson. What? Look at that pastor licking them potatoes from them greens. Liam, what you got? I got a nice hamburger from he's done it. This is a freshman here. Do you love the dining hall? Some very enthusiastic president about the dining off. Did I get too much dessert? Hell, yeah, the lien. Slight. Slight me in the dining hall. So it's all for free. Always for a friend, it's for a friend. That's thing about dying hope is that you can come here on a weekend or any day and stay as long as you want and eat as much as you want. It's really good to come here like on a weekend and do your homework and just do one swipe and get as much food as Iran. It's really fun. Another thing is that the people who work in the dining hall are really awesome. Like last year, I was friends with Carrie, who worked the pasta station, and she was looking amazing. Has also friends with Monica, who did the vegetarian station so pretty much It's an amazing spot, really good food. Sometimes it gets a little bit repetitive, but I feel like every month or so they're able to mix it up. And if your inventive than the food's always go easy is that? Was that a successful trip? The dining hall course. It was always a successful trip. Dining all. All right. I'm gonna go home and do some homework. Yeah, I need to keep your grades up. Catch you on the flip side. Do it. TV. Welcome to our crib. Yeah. So this is the entry way. This is our little mud room. You know, we have a little Can you tell me who you guys are? So my name's Lina.

We're like, we want to live in apartment of the state and this is I think, that was available. So the emailed us there do it. Great thing about baseball. It's on East Campus. It's close to calm, which is the College of Communications and CS, which is College of Arts and Sciences. And it's not too far from God, which is the library. So you want to show you? Right? Some stuff under the bed. Fine, faster. Right? Because that over there and this is my closet over there. So what were you thinking? We were We didn't. But it's okay. It's great.

Think about the least favorite purse, please. And why? My least favorite thing about you is, although the campus is really nice, it's a little bit long. So sometime, very loved. It's very lateral, so sometimes welcome to class takes a long time But honestly, I love it because it gives me exercise and it's so beautiful here that you can see all the scenery. Us. My least favorite part of going to you is in part because I'm from Miami is the weather. I don't fare too well in the cold in the dark cold. It's actually really fine. It's really nice right now. It's just the second semester sometimes gets too cold for me, but that's just because of reports. Yeah, favorite part, I think. My favorite part. Um, it's my least favorite part so because these campuses so spread out, everybody's walking everywhere. So you always run into friends and new people as you welcome in class. And it's just a very big community on the strip. That view is it's just very trump people. And it's a good ride. Um, I really like the people that I've met Definitely. When my favorite parts of you love my professor is here especially. My minor is the comparative literature and some of the professors that an encounter within my mind had been so phenomenal. I've learned so many things from them and from the film professors that pad these people are people that I've been studying, what they love for a very long time in a really passionate about it. And I've been fortunate to have professors that really love to be re sources and want you to use them as a resource. No, Yeah, perfect to quit cousin questions one. Could you describe the student body at you and then to Could you describe what the academics and you're like? I think the academics are very rigorous, but they also have very cool classes that you can take for electives when you're done with all your requirements. So think you have to work hard. But you can also take classes that are very interesting and very unique. Yeah, as faras the student body goes. I feel like whatever community like you're attracted to you, Khun. Definitely find it at you, even if you don't. But first, see if it's definitely there. You're like more of a person who likes to be around artists. You could definitely find that people, if you're really interested in, like, social club, like any sort of, like, active activity that's like a social activity on campus. He could definitely find that. So it's really finding you're Well, thank you guys so much. Hey, I'm gonna talk to you a little bit about what it's like to live as a student off campus at Boston University. So I live here at this house, and it is a amazing It's very different than living on campus because you have to cook all of your own meals and you don't live so close. Two classes. But I think it's personally worth it. It's a lot cheaper to live off campus because you don't have to pay for a lot of the accommodations. It's also a lot more fun. You can have more people over, and you kind of do whatever you want. You could decorate and I'm staying on campus for the next three years. So I have some stability there. Which is really nice to have. I lived with for my best friend's, also, which is super wonderful. Compared the living freshman year with a complete stranger whom I love. But it was a very different experience. All right, I'm gonna give you guys a little tour of my house s. Oh, come on, let's go. All right. We're at my apartment. I'm gonna give a quick tour. Here we go. Come on. Welcome to my house. This is the yet to be named household of me and my roommates, Clinton, Ryan and Ransom. Here is the living room, which still needs to be decorated a little bit. We have our lovely couch, lovely tapestry and lovely Jewish holiday colored string beats. We have a television here. If you follow me, I'll take you to the kitchen. This is our kitchen. A lot of times we entertain guests and we actually took a lot of food for our friends who happen to live right across the way. In those houses over there, Superfund lived with next to people you like. This is Ransom and Quentin's room. They lived together, but they also pay a super reduced rent. Here is ransom's room the bathroom. Hey, I just want to give you a little quick personal tour of my room because I personally love it. Here's my poster wall, which took me a really long time to make, and I'm really proud of it. It's built of all posters of art pieces of graphic novels that I found on Free Comic Book day last year in Boston. And I collected them all up. Cut them up and taped every single one to the wall. Here's my fireplace, which you can't actually put fire and it's illegal, but it's the thought that counts. Here's my desk, which is a total mess right now is where I do most of my homework when I'm not doing my homework, which is where I always do it on the couch, because that's more comfortable. Here's my book Shell. Here's the ladder that lives in my room right now, which will probably go in a minute. But you know, every good room needs a ladder and there's my cow best good old Bessie. Also, my room looks beautiful at night. I set up a ton of lights and I'm gonna pan to them right now. When I edit this video later and put in a bunch of beautiful shots of my room. Looks like a knight. wait level last high bog. We'd Scott Biggles. I exploit more on the way to be yesterday I got my nails done like, terrifying. I've never had a killings before, and I regret it so much because just like, weird cat nails. Elvira, I'm gonna try cup Hm? With a machete. You know, your nails are too long When you can't even wipe your own cat's gonna help move it. We fit it all into somehow with the help of cats. Genius. Look at you. Oh, baby, look at that. You wait, wait, go. Should be good. We got all this and more. That's not even close to a really good about it. Eleanor is roasting. Let is making progress. I need a bigger cause. Hi, Bog. We're just here. Even your little star food. We took a break for moving in. We're just enjoying this beautiful view. One more. What are your thoughts? I thought this is doing very nice. Do. Well, well, I done goofed on my exact everywhere. We're getting there a little bit. Kind of don't really know, but like, did you have to stop and get some? Uh, mother, This is a Christian YouTube. We can't be right way. Froth candy that's around. You won't describe if you like Hi. Welcome to my humble abode. My dorm is located on the ninth floor of towers, which is the very top floor, and it's really cloaks that faces out to Bay State Road that has all the beautiful sunlight. Um, some of the furniture that BU provides for our dorm includes the armoire, the dresser drawers and the desk as well as a limp. Um, so starting with the armoire is really important for me to have. All my clothes and hate are hung up because I don't like the folds in them, but it's really nice. Could has room for not only my blouses and dresses, but also from my winter coats, which I'll need starting in after hello. It also had the shelf so I could put my hats and my scars, my bags and then underneath. I have some storage space for extra hangers and my diabetic boxes, and the last really cool thing about the armoire is right next to my bed. I can use it as a nightstand so I can have my assault length and my fan, which is really important in the first couple weeks of school because it's really freaking hot in Boston some other things in their dorm. While BU does provide a mirror like that one on the other side. My room and I also got another mirror, a swell as a clock, so we can tell the time, and we could make sure we're on time for class. And it's also really nice because the towers is located right behind question, which is where all the business classes are. So when we wake up at eight fifty, five hundred classes at nine ten, we could just run right over. So now, moving to the back, the beds are lofted in the towers. However you can love them. A lot of my friends have them unlocked it. And on the ground level, uh, when they are up top, it's really nice to have this, because this is definitely save me a couple times from falling off and I've fallen off a couple of their beds. Also another dorms. So the beds here, BU and most college storms have twin XL bed, which is kind of pesky finding sheets. But it also leads you to pick new sheets and have a whole new room to court. Uh, next we have the dresser drawer, which it's like I hung with. I hanged most of my things, but I do have a couple of things in here like T shirts as well, a story to the bottom. And speaking of storage the way I have the dressers located underneath the bed behind Over here, you can see my suitcases. There's two right there, but there's actually seven within all of this book, like there's a lot of stuff in there look really good storage really nice, because I have a lot of things from the West Coast. Next, we have my little. Would you call this a nook? Getting ready for run it through the day? I actually used the thing from on top of the desk as a shoe rack. You could see my kid shoes through the nice so I don't happen just like laying at the bottom of a closet. And over here is my desk. I have it facing the window, which is kinda close to the super bright outside. But it's really nice because I love the natural light and it's perfect so I can look out until they're really nice. Um, landscape of Boston, and it faces the west side. So all this afternoon, sun comes into a room and warms it up so beautiful. So some essentials for the dorm, I would say, is the fan for the first couple weeks of summer, our first couple weeks of classes. I have that fan and I have this dance and they both definitely save. Meeks was really hot in here, and there's no air conditioning in any of the dormitories except for the upperclassmen. Stupefy, your student village own West campus. I would also recommend a mattress pad because the door was here have really hard mattresses. And this will definitely save your back from having to go to a chiropractor. And another thing I would recommend is an extension cord. Because you have You think you don't have that many things to plug in. We have, like a laptop charger, a lamp, a phone charger. Also have your other fans. So you don't I need an extension cord. The last thing about during the super important is the micro fridge. You can rent one from BU Vetting services. They don't allow you to bring your own microwave. However, you can bring your own fridge. But what's nice about this fridge is it's just released. It's delivered to you. You don't have to move it anywhere. They just take it from you from the end of the year. Has a freezer and the fridge. And then this is nice shelf is our pantry. I have all my snacks from city code in here. Bye utensils. And my roommate has her scent on that All right. Can you guys talk to me about what it was like to meet each other's roommates and what living on campus is like you, Penn us? I'm I I am theater Major in the s. A T s.

Super fun to live with next to people you like. This is Ransom and Quentin's room. They lived together, but they also pay a super reduced rent Here's ransoms room the bathroom. Hey, I just want to give you a little quick personal tour of my room because I personally love it. Here's my poster wall, which took me a really long time to make, and I'm really proud of it. It's built of all posters of art, pieces of graphic novels that I found on Free Comic Book Day last year in Boston, and I collected them all up cut them up and taped every single one to the wall. Here's my fireplace, which you can't actually put fire and it's illegal, but it's the thought that counts. Here's my desk, which is a total mess right now is where I do most of my homework when I'm not doing my homework, which is where I always do it on the couch, because that's more comfortable. Here's my book Shell. Here's the ladder that lives in my room right now, which will probably go in a minute. But you know, every good room needs a ladder and there's my cow Best good old Bessie. Also, my room looks beautiful at night. I set up a ton of lights and I'm gonna pan to the right now when I edit this video later and put in a bunch of beautiful shots of my room. Looks like a knight. I'm going to give you a little tour of my dorm room. I currently live in thirty three hair again. It's why also known as the student village to also not a stupid, too. So my room this year is a double in a suite of eight people, so there's four singles in two doubles on the ends. I'm in one of the doubles. This side is mine. It's all our asses. The window got a bed, some posters. Everyone in the room has a dresser and a desk and a chair. I left my room a little realistically, Messi obviously could be a little cleaner, but that's realistic for college students. The's death circle because they have attached stoplight and bottom light. So you could study or it brings light into the room. Most storms it be. You only have four drawer dresser, but we have five draw dressers in this room. That's my roommates, and that's her side. And then we have two connected clauses. You're not supposed to bring your own mini fridge. Some kids do, but if you get caught, you'll get in trouble. Um, so you can rent a mini fridge for believe two hundred twenty five dollars, which you can split between your roommate. So it's not that bad, but it's still kind of bad. You've got a fridge, freezer, microwave. These feds you can raise. I didn't have to raise mine because it was already like this, but I put a lot of stuff under here like I've got a printer. I got actual supplies. I've got blankets and towels and bedding my suitcase. My dorm suite also has a common area where we can hang out, watch movies or we can eat snacks and meals at all. One of the really nice thing about Stevie one and Stupid, too, is that there's air conditioning. Thank God it's been so hot. BEAN EOS Here that I cannot imagine living in a freshman dorm like it did for the last two years without air conditioning. It's so nice, but most of the dorms here don't have it. This storm is crazy views, no matter what side you live on, my face kind of east downtown. Over there is the potential building, obviously this stupid one. And over here you can see across the Charles River into Cambridge. Beauty is a really good job of keeping their students safe in the dorm. So most of the dorm building is the big ones, like Stevie, too, to be one West campus, Warren Towers, towers, all those buildings they all have. Just wipe in via your beauty, which is really nice because they are really strict. If you don't have your idea and you forgot it, it's kind of frustrating. But it's also really nice to know that they're keeping other people out and can't like scam their way in. Stupid to also has a really nice study room on the twenty sixth floor, which I'll show you and they've got obviously laundry male in the building. Really short walk to the gym, really short walk to gas arena where sports and sometimes concerts air held. It's pretty convenient in all of West Campus, but it's kind of far from my class is. It's like a good twenty minute walk to calm. The only sad thing about Stevie, too, is that it is the most expensive dorm on campus. It's pretty pricey, and if you don't live in an apartment, which they have on the other side of the floor, you have to pay for a meal plan, which is like upwards of five thousand dollars. Be really expensive, which is just a common theme in every way. Right now, I'm in the studio to laundry room. I do my laundry about once a week, maybe once every two weeks. Um, the laundry at you do have to pay for both the washing and drying, which kind of sucks. A lot of schools do have it for free, but you does not. Sadly, most of the buildings on campus do you have a laundry room in the building? Some of the South campus and Bay State dorms. They don't have laundry to have one. Every few buildings in the city to laundry room is really nice and new and clean. Recommend you stock up on type odds or whatever equivalent you confined. There is so much easier than using detergent and all the parts of doing laundry because most kids come to college not knowing how to do their laundry around. So that's my little tip. Right now, I'm more towers. I'm on the floor that I used to live on last year. It's one of the freshmen dorms. It's in East Campus. All the rooms are singles or doubles. There's a one quad for floor Warren Tower says three towers, but it also has one dime, one mail room and three laundry rooms, one per floor. It's obviously not the most glamorous storm, but you make a lot of friends on your floor like I did. And it's really central campus, things like home CS. Right now, I'm in the studio to laundry room. I do my laundry about once a week, maybe once every two weeks. Um, the laundry at you do have to pay for both the washing and drying, which kind of sucks. A lot of schools do have it for free, but you does not. Sadly, most of the buildings on campus do you have a laundry room in the building? Some of the South Campus and Bay State dorms. They don't have laundry to have one. Every few buildings. The study to laundry room is really nice and new and clean. Recommend you stock up on type odds or whatever equivalent you confined. There is so much easier than using detergent and all the parts of doing laundry, because most kids come to college, not know. I kind of do their laundry on their own, so that's my little tip. So when I was a freshman, I opted to live in small dormitory style room instead of a large dormitory style. So this isn't a smaller building. One of those little brown stones on base state road where our room, the building where in used to actually be a family home and then be you bought up a couple of them and turn them into housing. So here is the grand tour. We walk in and we have a nice large closet that me and my roommates use. I do have two roommates. Don't look too hard at that area, and then we walk into this room. Uh, this is the double. There's a single behind this door, but I'm not going to go in there. That's just a small room. This is the bigger room where my roommates live, one of whom is a freshman. And then we do a little pan. We can see our microwave with peanut butter on it because I just made breakfast. We have a little mini fridge under there, and then we have our very own bathroom equipped with a shower, and there's a sink around the corner, and that's where I live. And have lived since I was a freshman. So make sure to keep in mind that you can apply for small dormitory style living as a freshman specifically on Bay State Road, which is beautiful. And a lot of freshmen don't know they can live here. So here's your insider tip. Go for it. You never know. I'm going to give you a little tour of my dorm room. I currently live in thirty three hair again. It's white, also known as the Student Village, to also not a stupid, too. So my room this year is a double in a suite of eight people, so there's four singles in two doubles on the ends. I'm in one of the doubles. This side is mine. It's all our asses.

Um, so you can rent a mini fridge for believe two hundred twenty five dollars, which you can split between your roommate. So it's not that bad, but it's still kind of bad. You've got a fridge, freezer, microwave, these foods you can raise. I didn't have to raise mine because it was already like this, but I put a lot of stuff under here like I've got a printer. I've got actual supplies. I've got blankets and towels and bedding my suitcase. My dorm suite also has a common area where we can hang out, watch movies or we can eat snacks and meals at all.

This storm is crazy views, no matter what side you live on, my face kind of east downtown. Over there is the potential building, obviously this stupid one. And over here you can see across the Charles River into Cambridge. Bute is a really good job of keeping their students safe in the dorm. So most of the dorm building is the big ones likes to be too stupid. One West campus, Warren Towers, towers, all those buildings they all have. Just wipe in via your beauty, which is really nice because they are really strict. If you don't have your idea and you forgot it, it's kind of frustrating. But it's also really nice to know that they're keeping other people help and can't like scam their way in.

It's pretty pricey, and if you don't live in an apartment, which they have on the other side of the floor, you have to pay for a meal plan, which is like upwards of five thousand dollars. He was really expensive, which is just a common theme Really quick dorm. Erm essentials. Number one posters on the walls so you don't feel like you're living in a prison cell number to bed risers. They're perfect if you don't love falling asleep staring into your roommate size and number three lights. The dorm lights are harsh fluorescents that will burn your soul and trust me getting some string lights. Make it beautiful and fun. Also get a fan. There's no A C. You're going to die in the summer if you don't have a fan. So happy you have a ton of different housing options for where you can live When you are a student here, housing is guaranteed for all students for four years, so that's pretty awesome that you're always going to be guaranteed a place to live. We have many different parts of campus that you can live in. You can live in East Campus on base day, and we also have some pretty far on the other side of campus also. So we have, like the brownstones in Bay St we have Central, which you'd have, like Warren Towers in which is a freshman dorm. We have South campus, which has some apartments and another dormitory complex. We have West Campus, which West is best. That's where all of like the athletes Liv and all the people who are more into the social scene, which is also where I live in West Campus. You have Steuby one into which are these beautiful dorms that it's really hard to get into. You either have to, like, know someone older than you be a junior senior, being a sorority or being a sport. So it's definitely like the Hunger Games, trying to get into Studi, and then we also have just so normal West campus storms like Sleeper Hall, which is attached to Thie dining Hall and Claflin Hall and Rich Hall. So those air the three kind of West campus storms that we have here, which are also Mohr of the freshmen dorms. So for freshman, you really only have a few options. You could live in the towers, which is a freshman dorm. You can live on base state. Which of the brownstones, Like I said earlier, you can live in West Campus, which West is best. Like I said, Well, you can. Within Warren Towers, I highly recommend that you live in West Campus. It's very close to the social scene. It's close to the gym. It's close to triple lei and blaze and all of the fun things that you could ever need in your life. And if you're more into kind of convenience and you like to wake up late and go to class with, like, ten minutes to spare, then definitely living Warren Towers, even though it kind of has prison vibes. I have lots of friends and Warren, and they all like it. I don't know why. But you know it's convenient. It's really close. It's located in the center of campus. Our housing was on the little bit of a price. Your side. Like I said, it's guaranteed for four years. But you do not have to live on campus for all four years. I know a lot of people who have moved off campus or are going to move off campus for the sophomore year or junior year, which is pretty common so you can also get apartments. It's super easy to find apartments to lease in Boston, and so those air some of our housing options. Hi. I know it's a bit. I'm here with Julian. We're shooting a film today. A student film for calm. And here we are. So here for nights saying what? Hold the lighting circle, Max. No. Yeah. And this is Lena. This is our director of this amazing project. Stop, Bill, you're hurt. I like that. Where? Make it a movie. He he's like I'm better Hey, Alright, I've brought you to a freshman's dorm. This is I'm Maya and she's a perfect. So she lives in ten nineteen, which is the dorm that lives directly next to West Campus. And she's going to show us around her dorm room, and her and her roommate are going to talk to us a little bit about the roommate process, finding a roommate and what it's like to live in the dorm your door. This is my roommate is Well, Hello. Hello. This is Thomas. He does not live here. Do you want to show off your side of the room? This is my son. My friends and family pretty well is beautiful.

This is Air Himalayan Salt lamp diffuser. You know, honest day's gotta stay awhile.
