Yeah. Hi. I'm Crystal. Oh, I am a sophomore. So I'm graduating in your twenty twenty. I'm a music major at the Chinese minor, and I am both of those because I love over those subjects. I found out about Colby through a group presentation that several colleges joined it on. So there was, like, some college from Virginia. And there is a college from I think it was Wellesley and it will be one of those colleges. So I applied to Colby, and then I got in. And now I'm here and I chose Kobe because it was best school that I got into and also like it had the best combination of academic academics and financial aid. And they also really loved how small the school was and how all these students seemed to know they're professors. And when I came to visit, everyone was just so well coming. It was very different, I think, than what I experienced in my high school. Ah, uh s. So why did you choose Major? I chose true Chinese. Because so I originally applied is in East Asian studies, Major and I originally thought I was going to be like a Chinese major. If, like the department offered it, which they don't, so I was gonna be a ta es mejor. As it turns out, I love So then what happened? Was that some way some part through, I realized that I wasn't going to be a Chinese major, but I still really, really like speaking training. I like learning Chinese. It connects me to my roots. So then I decided to be a Chinese minor, and then I tried to be a music major because earlier this year, so I've been playing music since I was a little bit. Earlier this year, I had this realization that I love music so much and studying anything else, even though it would make me more money just didn't seem worth it anymore. Like everything else, you kind of fell away and all like I wanted to do with This is the most comfortable spot on campus. Why? Well, I can't really tell you, but if you come over and feel it herself, so most comfortable couch in the whole wide world. And I think they're also part of the exhibition of the art museum, which is right over there. And it's just so comfortable. It's an indescribable feeling. But you should also be aware they should never, ever, ever spill on it because I think the finals like ten thousand dollars. It's pretty stretch and gas. When I see a lot of top right over there, you know what that means? Time to work on my paper. I was born a race in China in a city college engine which is really close to Hong Kong. It is a really big urban, modern city and it's really, really different from cold. So coming here was kind of a shock for me because everything is so green and there's some increase everywhere, which was really different from what I'm used to, where skyscrapers and highways and cars basically everywhere. So when the reasons why I decided to come here was because I really wanted a small community, I wanted small classes because I always realized I always do better and smaller classes and they figure ones. I really like how the campus is so small and the people there's only like two thousand students in total. So people, even if you don't know people by their names, can always recognize a couple of familiar faces. It feels really nice because it feels like a really big family and get away on DH Yeah. Yeah, I think they say like you don't really appreciate the good ties if you haven't gone through the bad times. Yeah, on. So this bad, the student body at your school where actually, this is kind of vague. If it's too general for you, how about, like, describe your friend group? What are they like? I. So I'm part of like the Christian Fellowship on campus, so I've made a lot of good friends through that. And there's like a lot of different religious life activities going on campus, which is really cool. Multi faith cancel. I guess I hang around literature. People look like books alive. No. Okay. Um, so, uh, what is your favorite? At least favorite part of Colby. I think my favorite part is definitely academics like there's so many classes, especially this year as I've become like discovered professors and like like department that I like more like I sit in class and just really enjoy. And I feel like I'm learning stuff. But I've never learned before. I think my least favorite part. Sometimes the location will be isolated. Uh, I mean, it's really beautiful, so like but I guess, kind of like a city girl. So sometimes it's been a little bit hard to be like far away the city. But downtown is starting to, like, get more stuff. Kind of had more stores and restaurants like that, so that's good. How can go downtown? How can you go downtown? There is shuttle that runs at certain times. Like on a loop toe like a walmart and a few others, like stops downtown. And there's also a kidney, which kind of takes you like exactly where you want to go in the wonderful area. But, yeah, this is cool stuff downtown. The library is really beautiful, like my favorite place Water Bill, Public library and our very own Miller library. Yeah. Okay. Last question. As you could do application season all over again, which is still true, Scobie. That's not a good sign. I think so. In like, I probably would give more consideration to location, like being closer to the city, but in terms of like everything else, just like the people I've met here and the like academics, I would. Any last thoughts for prospective students. That's super application process. Wherever you end up, we'll be good. And if it's not, you can always transfer. So it's not that big of a deal. Thank you very much. Enjoy your salad. This is Miller Lawn. When it's really nice out, when it's not covered in snow and ice any more, people will come out and sit on the one. Sometimes people even play Frisbee. But because it's Friday, people probably are going to Boston or going somewhere else. That's fun. So not a lot of people are outside right now, but the Miller one is Ray and front of our main library, Miller Library. It has most of the humanities and also large collection of a lot of other subjects, Um, books in this library. And this is also the place where people take pictures up when they visit Colby, either of the blue clock tower that's gonna light up when it's at night or as a flagpole. What you see, if you stand from the perspective of Miller, so let's take a quick We have a lot of things on this menu. But if you don't like worst, we also have the visual explain. Well, I love these movies, especially the main ghost, the which I probably can't find right now, but it's there somewhere and I love him. But I'm not going to get lunch name because I already spent so much money when the favorite food of the Spot B and they actually taste really good. It has avocado salmon, an imitation crap, which I love. And they also have shoves making them. But they're not here right now, but they actually have actual shows making them right here when they're available, and it feels like an actual sushi bar, which is really, So this is the spot, not like your typical movie and massage type of spot. But it's a place for students. Hang out and get lunch, and we're just wanted do clicking out here together. I don't really know what's Hot spot maybe like Stephen Bayley association. Or did he just wanted Teo, pretend that they could have so luxurious spot here? Fine. What one of my favorite things about the spot are the tables every day and new. During the school days, there were people table E at a table and sometimes you get free food. Hello. What is this table for you? And we're marketing for tonight's Big tonight. That sounds really cool. I think I'll just take a free food even though I have taken one party so far. Thank you. Hello. What are you guys stabling for? Your review? Our show tonight. Okay. Sounds awesome. Already got my ticket, but I just want to get This is corporal, which we also call take for it because every time can take four different food item If you're in a hurry to get to class.
