We're in the College of Fine Arts right now, and I'm gonna give you a quick tour. The College of Fine Arts has a music school, a theater school in a visual art school. I'm gonna take you to each floor and show you a little bit of each. Then in here, there's an art gallery that you could pay to go into and see really exhibits by local BU artists. Who? What's this currency in this before? This is a theater that's primarily used for orchestral performance here. BU. There's not a lot of theater in here, but the walls are built to bounce musical sound off very well. I'd lecture in here last year for drama lit. It's one of the EU's main small black box leaders. It's set up in thrust for Angels in America. A small issue I'm running into as I try to show off the CF is that every room has a class going on it or a rehearsal. This hall is all music practice rooms, which looked pretty much like this. They'll have a piano or another instrument in it, and the cool thing about it is that you can actually record sound, other background vocals that play through the speakers out of the wall. It's a really high tech new program, and I'm never going to use it. I can't play an instrument, but I can appreciate it as you go upstairs in the elevator. The calls of fine arts actually used to be an old car manufacturing factory. So it's a super old building, and a lot of the rooms haven't been renovated. That, much like one o for one of the main feature spaces, is actually an old show room, so it has a giant glass windows that the cars would be shut off. I'm currently on the fourth floor of the CF right now, which is where a lot of the classrooms and administration is. When all the new freshmen come in, they put on the head shot wall and they're assigned to a sophomore and the sophomore shows them around and kind of takes care of them. So it's kind of like a big little situations that every freshman, the C f. A. Has somebody to go Teo and has someone kind of looking out and taking care of them. It's a really beautiful tradition, and it actually was really helped for me coming in because I knew nothing. My sophomore Nick brought me over, cooked me dinner and taught me a lot about the school. He's off to a meeting, but I just want to say hi to Jim Potosi is the head of the CF. A high there. We hope you'll come and see a school of Peter's office.
