I'm in the College of General Studies or as we call it, C G s. Uh, it is another classroom building, and it's basically the reason I want to show you is because I've had classes here, even though I'm not in cogs. One of the interesting things it's not really good or bad about you is that they don't always have their classes in the buildings that you would think. As I've said, I've been calm, but I still had classes in the photonics building of classes. The engineering building see? Yes, pretty much every building on campus. So the reason I want to show you this is because you very well may have classes here, even if you don't live on that side of campus or, you know, if you just aren't in the school. This classroom with typical as to what I showed you before desks, projector, screen and chalkboards and all si jest is on the west side of campus. So it's closer to things like West Campus storms to be, too. It's right next to the CF Building culture Fine Arts. So it is kind of a hike ticket over the bridge to get to this class from where I used to live when I would take these classes, but obviously everything on campuses within, like, a twenty minute walk. You know, everything's in a straight line that bu, so it's kind of her to get lost. There's nothing particularly special about CGS. Um, I don't think I could get in there right now, but there is an auditorium in the basement where which is technically the first floor of this building. Um, where I've taken some exams for my com classes. Um, there's a nice library in here that I'll show you, and it's pretty much just classrooms for the whole building. The CGS program is a little different on DSO. Here's kind of a warning on your application. It will have an option to say, like I'm interested in the College of General Studies program or something like that. Um, because CGS is essentially like, you have to take all of your requirements first. It's very communities based not very like You don't have much choice with your classes. So if you're interested in the humanities, you know, social sciences and his histories and um, you know, writing cost was in English and go for it. You basically spent two years on ly doing those classes. You can't really take other classes except for the intro class to whatever major, the other college or going into. Honestly, everyone I know that's in it hates it. I don't know a single person that enjoys it and be used, changing their policy, where if you get into C. G s, you have to take the semester fall semester off, go for classes in the spring at you and then in the summer, take six weeks of London classes. A lot of schools do similar things, but in a better way to my recommendation is to not check that box.
