So because I'm a musical theater major, I get access to practice rooms and you can check these out Sherwood Music School three twelve and you get access to a practice room with a piano. This one happens to have two for teaching lessons, but they're pretty boring. But you get a stand, a stool and a mirror so you could look at yourself and wave to cameras. I spend a lot of my life in these rooms, practicing and singing. My vocal lessons happened in a room very similar to this one. And as someone who is a musical theater major, that's where I spent a lot of my time.

The one thing is that up on the fourth floor they have the loft, which is this space that a lot of clubs do meetings in and a lot of sports just kind of like hang out in, so that's on the fourth floor of What have you guys? It's Meghan. This is my campus real. I'm showing you all like Quade's campuses, places we're gonna hang out, Chill. We're in Chicago, so our campus is literally the city. So my favorite place to come is honestly Grant Park. It's a public plot of land that the city putting years ago that there like this has to remain public. So I bring income and just enjoy. As for grass and trees and stuff, Um, so it's great. I love it. It's a great little place to get away. It's right across the street from the six hundred building from the library. The bookstore, the six twenty for all of that right down on Michigan Avenue could walk to the lake. You could go over to Millennium Park, go to the bean. You go anywhere you want, but Grant parks a really great place to be hello. You. When you lived in Chicago. Always put on an extra Jack, you'll need it. This is the Music Center at Columbia College Chicago, one of the two music buildings. It has four floors, and I have spent a large majority of my time here as a musical theater major and also as someone who is in the OC Appel Ensemble. As you can see, Columbia College spreads out its classrooms all along this main thoroughfare of Michigan Have me there also some on Wabash and eleventh Street, as well as the farthest Southern building at sixteenth Street. But this is the music building. Columbia has two, and this one's referred to as the music center or its address. Let's take a look inside. Once again, you'll see me showing my idea to the security guy, and this is where I spent a large chunk of my life over the last couple of years. I am in the Aqap Elon's on Let Colombia, known as Breakaway, and I spend about six hours a week in this building because of that, through rehearsals and sectionals and other things related to it, the music center has really been important to me overall, just because I've always considered myself to be a technical musician. But it's really emphasized to me. The importance of ensemble work and practice as well as the resource is it gives me like this here, the reverence of my center dedicated to music majors and other people who need help with performance resumes because you need to work and you need a resume, and these put them with the music emphasis on them. These are all ensemble rooms and practice rooms, depending on the equipment in the size and as you can see as you passed by all the doors here or locked with combination codes. That's because everything at Columbia pretty much is access restricted, except for thes practice rooms here, these are open anytime. The building, our and our free for any student to use as long as they're open. There's the smallest ones on campus, but they're always available. Miss. Of course they're full, making them convenient when you forget to book a space which you could do online. This is the third floor of campus, and I've spent a lot of time just walking these holes and spending time meeting people. But one of the most important things that I have actually found here is the student lounge. It's a place to print your extra sheet music and give snack and look at the posters on the board. But it's also a place where I've met a lot of my collaborators, people who would go on to help contribute to be just collaborators and then friends. It's a great place to meet other people, especially during the down time between classes. This hallway is where you're gonna find a lot of the fulltime professors, and I've actually taken a lot of voice lessons in here is well, this main area here is where there's a lounge as well as where you can look at any official documents that are coming up for this, for example, that Will will help. Form is coming up, and there are some handouts for that, as well as other opportunities that are going on for music majors in the area. Course, you also have this lovely desk here where if you don't have the access code to a room, you couldn't come and ask them to unlock it. If you have it reserved, or if that room is necessary for your class and you beat your professor here, it's a great place to be. Last but certainly not least, is the concert hall. This is one of the places where large performances off ensembles, as well as featured guest and performers, come. You can see Columbia has a smattering of piano was pretty much everywhere I would actually show you inside, but it is closed because something is going on. This has been the music center at Columbia College, Chicago. The library at Columbia College, Chicago extends over five floors. On these floors, there are media center's computers, tables to study at and, of course, books here for both the research and reading pleasure. You can always find someone in the stacks looking for something they need, but it's more than that because the library extends over five floors. There's always students here, but it always seems to be quiet and empty, along with cool abilities and options such as our study rooms are group project rooms and a meditation room for those moments where you need to de stress and relax from the day. Columbia College Chicago's library has a ton of resource is to offer, and pretty much any time I'm downtown and I'm not in a steady you lounge or in class. I'm here. It's a great place to hang, and it's also a great place to get work done because it is so quiet. And there is WiFi library at Columbia College. Chicago is one of the gyms and also has won many awards for being an excellent college library. From your college famous for his famous moose. There's your roles all around Chicago. Get out and find them. Yeah. My name is May control Leo. And this is my campus, riel. Columbia College. Chicago has a large acceptance rate. I believe it's somewhere around eighty percent.
