High Rise 5 Double
Tour GuideBenjamin Chen
A look at a double at High Rise 5, one of Cornell's freshman dormitories. It's a bit older, which means no air conditioning in August/September and May, but for most of the year, Ithaca is fairly cold. The double is much bigger than those of some other dormitory buildings, and offers some great views of campus.
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I'm gonna be doing a tour of high rise five, one of the doubles. Their high rise five is right across the street from our PCC on so you can get some nasty really quickly. As you can probably tell, it's relatively big room. A lot bigger than I say, my place setting Yu's home. It's kind of a mess right now, but this is in my dorm, so don't play me. You might be able to see that their computers here, these air not provided with the dorm. You can see each person gets a table, gets a bed and gets a wardrobe. You have a main, you're and you have coverage here. Uh, over here, you'LL see that they're to waste baskets provided the thing about high rise five is that there's no air conditioning. So for most of the year, it's not that important because it is difficult. When you come to campus in August and in September it gets pretty hot, actually surprisingly hot. Since this room is relatively high up, you could get a pretty beautiful view of the rest of North campus, or at least east of high rise. You know, he's got some other residential buildings here. You might notice some music playing that's not part of the dorm, either. They made themselves at home, added a speaker out of computers, added this mirror, which is not provided either, having now you can see that each suite has won triple one double and two singles, and they all share one bathroom right here. So moving outside of the bathroom, you can see that there's a window here on your way out of a building. All rights five is pretty far north, so you can see that a good portion of the rest of north campus there's Amuse Hall over there. There's darling all over there, and if you look far enough. You can see moving on to the kitchen layout of high rise. Life is a bit here, but you can see there's a study around here s O right here is where the kitchen is. Here, the elevators that take you downstairs or upstairs. Skylar, you can see the kitchen is pretty cramped, but has all the necessities. Gotta Still, you've got a kitchen, Better refrigerator. Not too bad. So I asked my friends what they think about living in high rise five. Maybe not as great as, say, muse or ck B, but a lot better than the low rises or Donlan, which are much older residential buildings. You've got no way you see here, but it's not too bad for most of the year because it is cold and snowy, and the fact that it's really close to our PCC and nasties is really convenient.
