This is what our booth. Yeah. So. Come in. Watch here quarters. For insertion quarter, huh? Sister act? No. You come over here to this path right now. Both. But you will come over to this panel crest. Like saying Washington wants one name, Swipe your card and that was the best enter and that will pay for So meal plans here are interesting. You can't have a community you can have a resident plan on. There are multiple resident meal plan, so there's the Sprinzen. Yeah, bronze, gold and platinum or the by the resident male plans. But the silver wanna believe it is is the one for community. So that has, like the most amount of dining dollars with the least amount of meal swipes. Um, so they're certain dining halls that used meal swipes and their mothers and used in dollars. Some of them use both, Uh, like, for example, think it's easy. See that used, Which is the captain's commons? Um, I believe that one uses meal swipes and dining dollars. But yeah, also, we have a Starbucks on campus. There's, like two. Yeah, there's to dunkindonuts. Um, and yeah. So Starbucks takes dining dollars. But Dunkin Donuts is not well, not currently on DH. Starbuck's taking them dollars. This new thing, I'm a senior, and this is the first time in, like, the history of my four years of being here, that Starbucks has ever taken nine dollars. So that's cool. And yeah, so we have to. So actually, we have four dining halls. So we have Tim and Gasol, which is called Tilli by the cool kids. We have, Uh, so, yeah, there's Tillie. There's bear's den. Which eye level the dining hall's has probably the best, most palatable food. Um, then there is the CC. Like I mentioned before, uh, their foods. Okay, it's okay. It's not because not Red Lobster, but like it's okay, um, and there is Crimson. So Crimson is where you go, like, late at night. Like, if you like, comes in is where you go to Greece. Like, if all you want is greasy fried food, that's exactly where you go. You make a beeline to Krypton that they have the best smoothies, smoothies that Crimson are quite possibly the only thing that has sustained me for my last four years of college. So it's fantastic. And anyone that goes here will tell you that comes in Smoothies are phenomenal. So shout out to the people who make this secret. Look, no. Hey! Up there is the freshman dorm. Most people have a bear could of seven hundred students. It's too hall. Shea Hollander did call, but it's just one building, and then this is kind of the east side of campus. This is another hall, and we have the East Common campus. That's Ah has the bookstore and a place to eat over. Here's another upperclassmen dorms, and then inside of it, we have the health center. And as you keep walking, it's another upper class from dorm, and then on the lower level is a dining hall. We also have a community on campus so you can go into Boston. This is called University Park. It's the transition from East Campus Toe West campus. And this is the underpass from East Campus to West Hi, everyone. So this video is about hidden gems on and off campus at Bridgewater State University. I have foreign and judge for you today and to our on campus, and you are off campus. So the look of you a good idea, of course, is that you can use on and off campus during your stay here at Bridgewater State University. So the first hidden gem I have is a coffee shop, actually. So I was born in Beverly, Massachusetts, on the north shore of Massachusetts, and I go to Bridgewater State down on the South Shore, Massachusetts, and you'd be surprised how different everything is here. Most commonly in New England, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks are kind of popular coffee places to go. But here, down on the South Shore because a popular coffee place called Mary Lou's. And they're really, really good, like I'm talking like crazy flavors of ice coffee that you drink like all year round. And whenever I would go down to the cape on vacations, do anything I would see like Mary Luz and I would drive by, and I thought I was just kind of like a convenience store. But like when I came to college here, everyone runs on coffee. There you go. Mary Lou's Mary Lou's here is actually down the street like I walked to it all the time or if you broke our campus, you can just drive right over. It's like literally, like, not even a mile down the road like off campus. It's like, so convenient. But we also do haven't Duncan Donuts on campus in E. C. C. And we have a Starbucks in the library. My second hidden gem is a bagel shop that everyone, every Georgia State University Pizza Bagel Shop is called Bridgewater Bagel, and they have raysy cream cheese flavors. They have legs. Burt ones they have, like Oreo chocolate chip funf Eddie. They literally have, like the longest list of cream cheese like combinations that I've ever seen. So you can literally just go there and like try like whatever you normally on mornings, if you go in there, you'll definitely look around and see other students in Bridgewater gear parents, professors, maybe even, and it gets pretty pack in the morning, on the door, walking in. They actually of a sign that says Home of the Bridgewater Bears because so many people go there. A third hit and Gemma have for you is the Academic Achievement Center. So the academic achievement center is located in the library, and it's basically just a space for you to go and get help. So they'll have, like, signings with tutors. For all these different classes, you can go and get help. We also have a writing studio where you can see with people and they'll help you and read your essays or research papers and help you well, lengthen them. Maybe like cut outs and unnecessary bids helpyou. Find good sources and quotes. The Academic Achievement Center is also like where all advising is so like when you get your advisor, that's probably well, you'll meet them and like schedule appointments throughout the year. If you want to add or drop classes, that's also where you go. You'll talk to an adviser and you'll tell them why you want to drop class and then they go in and help you find another one. Make sure you're getting like all your credits done on time, everything like that. Most colleges don't have this kind of resource. Still kind of just have like advising and that's it. But we literally have, like a designated space in the library for help, for tutors, for writing, for lab, just anyone to talk to, to help you like, Hey, like I'm in this major, what clashes should I take? I just find it a really good resource on campus, especially since help you like network and branch out. Figure out what to do with your wager. The fourth hidden gem I have for you is the commuter rail train station we have here on campus. So many adults you'll see walking around with, like, briefcases and bags, because this is their France station to get to work because it goes directly into Boston. So if you want to go to Boston Sin on a weekend with your friends, it literally cost like ten dollars there. Ten dollars back to campus and you're literally on campus like you. Not to worry about, um, transportation like from a train station like uber bus rides. You just get on the train, go to where you need to go in Boston, maybe even take another train up north, south, east, west wherever you want to go, and then you can take the train back right to Bridgewater and it's on campus. So you can just go back to your dorm. No fuss. Perfect. Easy sample. And those are my forehead in Jim's on an off campus of Bridgewater State University. I hope you enjoyed them if you use them. Great. If you don't get on it, I was getting So I cannot give you a detailed tour of the library just because it's very hard to film and a library because of noise restrictions. But I will say the library is important on this campus. A lot of people spend copious amounts of time in the library. It's humongous, so that's fun. I do enjoy being in the library, you know, to get books and things of that nature. However, I don't like sitting in the library for extended periods of time. I feel like I can't get any work done in there just because I feel like I'm always shifting so that because I'm trying to find the perfect space because I feel like I shift a lot when I'm in the library. So I don't do any homework in there. I usually just go to a library to get books. Actually, I found Tom the coaches between the world and me in the library today, and that really made my heart happy. So, um, yeah, but the library is very important. And if you are one of those people that can't do work in your room, then definitely go to the library or I wouldn't just going toe like a dining hall to get work done just because dining halls could be very noisy. But actually a lot of the dining. Not damning, but the residence halls on campus have. Common areas so you can have you can actually study in the common area of a time of it. I don't know why I keep saying dining, but you can study in the common area of residents. So this is the apartment that I live in. This is our kitchen slash living. Um, we have drawstring anything. There's my purse on the table. That's our kitchen people. This's a refrigerator, uh, want me thie inside of over. So there's a sink Condemn. Eric leave. Um, Like I said, I think I said this earlier. Um, I live with four five other girls. Um, very nice girls. Um, those air to their rooms. There's a bathroom over here. The stairs up some course. I will show you in my room, but I'm not gonna play myself like that, so, yeah. So, Yeah. So I am currently taking five classes right now, and I know that may sound like a lot, but in context, Um, my first four semesters of college I took a look seven eight classes this semester. And those were not fun times. So if there's any advice that I can offer to any incoming freshmen, it's take a look at the amount of class that you can handle. I mean, there are some people that can handle seven, eight classes a semester. I know some of my biology major friends were taking nine costs semester just thinking graduate in four years, but do not stress yourself out trying to take four thousand costs this semester because it's really not worth it. Like your mental health comes first, and that's with anything, period. But yeah. So, uh, yeah, I'm taking. So I'm a psychology major with a double minor in Middle East and African American studies. Um, I'm taking a mixture of classes. I'm taking it like, well, of the classes that I'm taking this semester. Actually, they all kind of coincide with each other. So, like, I'm taking anthropology of race, class and gender, which fits not only into my psych major, but it fits into both of my miners. I'm taking African American literature, too, Even though I didn't take African American one, there's some professors that we're kind of like if you know them, they'll override that prerequisite because I think they know that you're capable of doing the work. So I'm not gonna say cut corners. But if you can handle upper upper level work, take it up. A little class actually took a four hundred level history class. That was pretty much all history majors. I was the only outlier. My psych majors. No, I'm talking about I was the only lawyer in that class, but it was fun. Um, I learned a lot, and that's really all that matters. So yeah, take his money. But I'm not taking many classes as you can. But like, if there's something that interests you, take causes in it like we offer classes. I think there's a cost for like everything here. I took the cost on information security That was really fun. Way to talk about the killer and how computers were instrumental and finding his whereabouts way. Have like we have classes on drawing and painting to my friends that art majors are in that class on. They love it. There's literally classes for every guinea and everything, and if there's not a class for it, you can petition the have a classmate for it. So it's really easy to kind of get what you
