I hope I didn't burn it or anything. Let's do a little bit longer, Okay? Things building a cocoon itch. There's the other dorms around us way have a volleyball court, basketball court and then lounge chairs. These are super fun. Little grills are over there. You can barbecue and make food out here if you ever want to do that. And just behind this building, there's a giant long that everybody likes to hang out at just like the ones in smell. And you've got a really nice. So this is this one of the study nooks. Each floor of the building has two. We also call them the sooner if you're cool and they have these really cool, nice white boards. And anybody could use a study office booth like Little Pod. Kind of. They have clear away the distractions, and then they have salads and these chairs there, like in the kitchen and stuff Tio. And they're so ugly. Everyone is constantly rolling around on them. It's actually every story has a giant TV. There's times of TV's on every floor that never get used, but they're there and they work. If you have something to Teo, this is the ball gender restaurant. So this is something unique to the new door. The bathrooms are all gender. Everybody on the floor of shares. So here we have all the sinks. Everybody loves brushing their teeth together. Yeah, they're super like right. Yours? Yes. You know about this beautiful nearer. You're sure you don't have to? All right. Yes, that just because you don't have to The shot was pretty like individual changing area as well as the curtain to cover where you shower. So issues are No, no, Very nice. Especially when you have to go. Four flights of stairs, bags, trash. And so this is the kitchen in the kitchen on the first floor. Super nice kitchen. You got actual giant branch here. You want it? Wait a minute, friend. Plus a freeze provided the toaster. Great. Here. Also, a lot of pots stop. People bring their own stuff too. Whether Biggs, Then there's rooms to study in a box. With these, we have four friars free free Wei, have Like so with Dexter, we are surrounded by buildings. Over here are too big engineering buildings where most of the engineering majors have their classes. Over here is the liberal arts building. It holds our art gallery as well. Most of the art classrooms over here, that giant, it's like cement looking. Building is our architecture building very much our archy majors live there and breathe there. Honestly, that major's way too attentive. And then all the way over there is my building. The education building as well as the business building is on the other side of it. Um, these are the two food trucks of today's Starbucks and the central coaster. Like I was telling you about, um, all around the other side of that tree is the library. Um, I will show you that in the different video, but this is the quad. Um, a lot of our events are held here. We have this thing every year for the freedom. Our free speech wall does cost some controversy, but that is held here every year. Way also have cultural clubs, um, events that I've put on every single year, usually on Dexter lot as it's our biggest Juan on campus. What's up, you guys? So today my mom and I are going to go shopping for my apartment that I'm moving into for my second year of college. So our plan is to head over to Michael's. We're going to try and find some of those really pretty vines. I could go around and you're like that one or just something in my room. I don't know. I kind of wanna hang like a succulent and like a cool light bulb from the corner of my room, like next night bed. I'm wearing this really pretty necklace out of your Scott from H and M. I believe it had another little like one on it, and it just looked too, like I don't know too much. So I just went and cut it off with some, like metal clippers. Like I don't know. My dad had them in his office, and then I have on these shorts from Tillie's. All right, so I'm gonna show you guys along and let's head out, and then real quick, I have a few like posters I wanna put up this year in frame, so I'm gonna take these with us to Michael's. We did this little D I Y. Product. Today we hade this old patio furniture we're about to throw out. And then I realized I need a patio furniture for my apartment. Should we kind of threw this altogether? Spray painted it this morning. Didn't take much time at all. So cute they might have. Lycan s here. That Shane, I get all this was on sale. Having rules. If I want I want some sort of flower arrangement. Okay, They have these. I don't really like that. I wanted, like the more, like feel like leaves that are more like that. Yeah, they have these fine resisted buying. Yeah, I would like a single one. Right. The next step is to find picture frames that called the prince that I bought literally last year and haven't really used. There's no room for them. We have a really cool prints would make it to use last year. You guys probably saw this in my dorm when I ripped it off way are going to look for a circle pillow because that's a fact. So I found this pillow that I thought was the kind of dope because I wanted a circle one, This is Velvet, and then I realize it's 50 bucks. So no way. Laundry bin, which I need I wanted one that can, like, squish up in my closet, but still, like, be firm because my Lawson from target was really cheap in the polls. Always fell out. That's perfect. I'm Well, how are you? Quick log. Intermission. Blinding. Why? I don't like the golden hour. What the heck? All right, we're heading to target. This is horrible lighting. Oh, my God. All right, next door. So I've been looking for something like this to put in a little thin based in our bathroom or something. I haven't told Shay, so she's okay with that. If not, I'll return it. Um, and that I wanted this hair lightening spray because I want more blonde in my hair. I guess you could say Okay, so we got these two leaves that we're gonna put the bathroom hopefully. And then that laundry bag. We have two large frame 60. My twenties. This is one of our outdoor patio furniture's things. And then two smaller ones. So that's what you thought. Today we're gonna put all these really cool pictures and now I'm just so that when we move in Super easy Pai letter poster. But it's likely fit in this. Frames were gonna cut some of it. Oh, my God. That was really cute. Doubling my favorite. I bought it from a guy from last year, and we didn't use it because there was no room. So very This is just on my better now. But I think I'm gonna put this hot on the wall like that. Like this is, um, on my bed, obviously. But then I'll have that print and then that print, and then I'll have, like, another hole like wall on that side. Except they're probably make me make a shelf. Who? One of those or something? I'm not sure. Or maybe all do nothing. I'm not really 100% sure what I want to D'oh. So it's the next day and I'm gonna continue packing so much stuff today just because tomorrow is kind of crazy with appointments and stuff I need to get done. So today is going to be a major packing day, but I also need to film a video. I wanted to film something that was like things every freshman need to know about, like, sorority recruitment and freshman dorms and all that, Or it might make it completely directed towards cow Polly. So we will see. But I need to film that today. I'll give you guys a quick Oh t D It sure is one of my favorites I have right now, and it is from till use. And then these shorts are from a little boutique called Caged. They have it in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and I think like the Bay Area. So if you ever are cage, they have good stuff there. So I love eating this, plus out of the bag from Primitives. I'm just making it right now. It takes about, like, +56 minutes. So we got one of these cool tech sports for our apartment, and I just kind of like the president. Inmates, welcome home on there are probably on exclamation point. Is this like appearing for you guys backwards? I just went ahead and packed up all my doctor stop hair stuff. Face masks in some random, like make it palates. Little need for, like, semi formals. So that's gonna be it for today's video. I don't really have much else that I'm gonna be shopping for until I get to school, which I'm doing in, like, a few days. So get ready for some new college videos. I'm gonna have a ton of time to film just because I'm not taking classes until mid September and make sure you guys comment any video ideas down below and get the studio thumbs up. I hope you guys love it so much, and I'll see you guys in my next video. We're in our graveyard now, and it's a hike that's pretty close to, Sir, this is a really call insight. You could just walk into the horses, and these are all like buildings and structures that the engineering and architecture should instead. And they left them here. And now you can just walk up and go and check them out. And it's a pretty cool right talk a couple more structures up there, but this is what it looks like here. People handed over here. Really fun up here on. I love hiking over here. Like I said, it's the biggest lecture hall, Yes. Yeah. So I thought since Courtney actually has classes in here since she's a business major, we could ask her how it is to have classes in here. So corny, How is it learning in this kind of an environment? It's definitely interesting. It depends on the professor for sure. The class size being big is actually not that big of an issue. If you pay attention and you take your notes, um, it's pretty good. Sometimes we'll get that random oddball professor who's actually gonna assign you seats in here and call on you to answer questions like my Nikon professor. Um, super great on DH. Sometimes you get professors that just do their thing, and they chew. Oh, and the screen is awesome. It's huge for big videos for examples presentations. And it's really not as bad as you would think. Good to know Looks pretty cool in here. So what would be advice that you would give to a prospective student Whose company Cal Poly, for me? It would be. You gotta work your butt off to keep going here. Me personally. And I know a lot of other people here just kind of coasted through high school. It was pretty easy. Like you were just naturally smart. You didn't study for anything, and boom, you got into a cop, all right? And other people worked the butt off a gun in here too. However, everyone here needs to work their butt off. I don't know anyone that's just coasting in there, Major. Everyone's working hard learning their stuff. Yeah, we all got a tough wake up slap when our quarter winter quarter was like, Oh, crap. The training wheels are off. We all figured out how to get into a rhythm. How to do well here. You just try to think of the best way that you know how to study. Use that in your first quarter and then learn from your first quarter. Learn from your first quarter. What went wrong? What did you do best? How did you learn the best? What was the best place, you found that you could do homework at those kind of things like you have to build off them because college is so different from high school like nothing is going to be the same except for just a few things. And you really have to work hard to get to college. It's not anything like high school. Like your mug. Thanks. So this is what a Sarah Vista kitchen Looks like. You get a stove and oven and a fridge. Nothing much of dishes my friends were doing. Kim, Jack, you get a big closet for all of your food stuff, and you get the other closet over here and then you get a full length couch. Two little love seats that big TV doesn't come with the room. I'm sorry. Um, and then we're gonna go contract. Connor lives in a single because we're both resident advisors. So that's not a usual thing In service. You really would have a bunk bed in here. But this is usually the dimensions of a double ninety six feet. Just getting up so pretty much these dimensions. You got a window? Usually there'll be two of these big wardrobes in the room and then a bunk bed. There won't be any tables or chairs because in double rooms they have study rooms. Emotional leave. Connor here. Bathroom. It was right here. See? Was a gun on. Then this you get a bathtub and a shower, but in the other bathroom on the left side of the apartment, you'll just get a shower, get toilet, obviously. Nice little fling. Well, third states, and there's actually that's it. Come here. Well, people actually don't find out until it there's a folly, but yeah, this is a service apartment. This is Aubrey, but just also single, but yeah. So this is the Kennedy Library. The Kennedy Library really have one library here on campus, and this one has five floors. They go from least quietest, the quietest. The fifth and fourth floor are always carry their pretty much You could hear a pin drop. Therefore, like grad students and students were setting for finals. I once last year went to get a book, and I was wearing foot flops. I got someone. Death stares from so many people on the first floor. You have the computer lab and the twenty four hour area. I lived in the twenty four hour area last year. I stayed until like, maybe one two in the morning, and it's also really cool. Is that you're if you're scared to walk back to your dorm, they have a security van here at Cal Poly. Or you can stay outside of the library and they pick up at certain times. And they'll take you all the way back to your dorm. If you're staying here until, like one or two o'clock in the morning, and then on the second floor, we have Julian's Cafe, which is cafe that stays open until the main part of the library closes, so not the twenty four hour area. But the main portion of the library stays open until that closes, and they offer Lottie's hot chocolate anything pretty much you could imagine this year. They now self sushi, and they do pastries and bagels, all sorts of breakfast stuff, so that's really cool. And then we also have the tech resource is here. So we have the computer resource and pretty much any tech that you need. You can rent out computers you can rent out video cameras, uh, sound recorders, things like that from the library. And you can also, uh, have the English Writing Resource Center is here so you can go and get Student Pierre writing help with. They can read your essays or your research papers, and they'll go through it and check in. And Grandma are spelling mistakes. So that is a really
