Hey, everybody, I'm down here in front of Taylor. Like to give you guys a bit of an overview of campus before certainly can't the specifics. So the first thing you should know about Colgate is that it was built on a hill. So there are a lot of hills and stairs on campus, and legend has it freshman at Colgate. They get the Colgate calves, which I can tell you from experience is very true, but right now I'm on lower campus, so there's a lower in an upper campus because we're built on a hill. So I had to come down the stairs, and now I'm in front of Taylor Lake, and behind me is Broad Street and Broad Street is the street with a lot of the fraternities that go right into town. You can see some people walking along it and with the willow trees lining it, that is a path that leaves pretty much down into downtown. If you have your first kiss on Willow Path, you'll get married to that person. So be careful when you're on Willow Path and directly in front of me is upper campus, and you have to go up a hill to get upto upper campus. It's kind of hard to see because of the trees. On upper campus is where all the academic buildings are in all the lower classman housing. So if you live in a dorm, its upper campus and all of the upperclassmen mostly lived on lower campus. So there are townhouses down Broad Street, their apartments across from campus. There are some like dorm buildings, a long, broad street for upperclassmen to live in. So every morning they have to make the hike up the hill. We have a cruiser system so they could just hop on the cruiser, and the cruiser will take them up the hill. Also on lower campus is all of the athletic buildings and most of the administration buildings there, some career services and other buildings on upper campus. A lot of that stuff happens on lower campus, and if you even go way above campus, the hill keeps going. Up there there are hiking trails and there's an observatory. There's a quarry where they mined the rocks to build West and East Hall's two of our residential halls so it can be pretty cool. The only downside, I'd say, is definitely the hills, but you end up with really nice calves afterwards, so I'd say it's worth it. So tune in and we'll try to go into more detail on a lot of these places and go up into upper campus, so see you guys later.
