So one of the dining options on campuses, cocks all, Which is basically your typical food court style situation. We've got tacos, We've got barbecue. We've got sin, which is we've got throw yo way. Also have these really, really cool machines that literally let you pick any soda ever show him outside? Oh, yeah, I get that. Vitaminwater Tropical sea. Oh, and that it dispenses. That's what I'm talking about. I mean, just look at these flowers. The care, the concentration that goes into them, this beautiful marble statue bridge thing that I don't know, cars can drive under. I think people like that unsure. All that I know is that it is the summer second, and it is sixty seven degrees out. Okay, it's winter, and it's sixty seven degrees. I don't know about y'all, but I'm from Connecticut, where we get feet and feet of snow layers of ice, and I wanted to escape. The cold weather in Atlanta and Emory University in particular is especially an amazing place to do so. So if you guys want a year long happiness, yearlong sunshine, you should definitely come here. So this is the main quad on campus, which is literally my favorite place. Because you have beautiful in this. I'm just gonna let you guys take a look. It is actually stunning, and so many people just spend time out here on the grass doing homework. Setting up can mix and blankets and laying out and just hang out with their friends were playing Frisbee, even. It is always so nice, especially on days like today, with the leaves falling and changing colors. Hey, guys, welcome back. So that's my friend. Not in his room. I'm in the chair, see which is on the west side of campus. That's a West village. So I'm going to show you her room layout because it's a little different than mine. So when you come in, you have two beds. This is a double room, and then these beds actually loved higher than the ones at murder. So this is not on the side. She's super girly, so she has all her stuff. Everything's like pink and white. I love it. They have little curtains because every room has a window. And so the thing I love about J. R. C. Is that they have this huge desktop further sink. And so Murdy, as you saw in the other video, has a smaller sink. But the thing about this is, I love the mirror because you can see everything. And then they have closets. The one downside about these causes that they're smaller than the ones in Murdy, but there's still super cute. As you can see, she has all her stuff. She has lots of clothes. I love her, though, and so the only real difference is the size of the room in the layout of This is one of the classrooms. It's one of the relatively smaller ones. Since Emery is a pretty medium size school, we don't have too many super huge lecture halls or lecture hall classrooms. That's mostly for the freshmen seminars and the big chemistry and bio classes. But once you get a little bit further into your major and things of that sort in, the classes kind of narrowed down to like fifteen twenty people. So this is what one of those would look like, and I think Professor Williams is writing on the board. But they're really cool. They actually even have fun swivel chairs and they're pretty comfortable. And yeah, nice class, bas. Good teachers, great students, great conversation. So this is what kind of a more stereotypical lecture hall would look like. All these different Rose, the teacher stands up front and lectures from the computer and the projector screen. I mean, it does the job. It's very efficient, I thought, the prettiest of buildings, but it gets it done over this room. Particular has a very special addition to it. No. Oh, stand for the right time to say goodbye I don't know the words but I'm gonna try and get it leaves. Lauryn Williams for everybody. Um, least favorite part. We'll easily The bear part is people. I think after a while, any campus gets old and routine gets old on classes, get boring. And it's had missed. And I think what surprised me most are how incredible. Uh, my friends are here and how smart and kind and giving the population here is that I feel supported no matter what. No. Suddenly, my favorite part, uh, least favorite part, I think. There's an emphasis on grating on test taking. Thanks. There isn't enough emphasis learning an intellectual curiosity, and I think it gets sucked out because people are very work hard, play hard. And so it's like when we focus for a couple hours, get this done, go go out and get drunk and then come back, cover my work, get drunk the next weekend, any. Is it something we're like? People are reading books for fun and, like people, have any stimulating conversations that does happen. But not to the like. Not overtly. I think in a small space is something I would like to see more. So about a five minute walk away from campus is this super cute little place called Emery Village. It meets all of your food needs. I mean, it has everything from Chipotle et tu Jimmy Johns, too. Dragon Ball, which gives you these awesome teriyaki race balls and dominoes and even has a CVS in a Panera. And some actually really nice restaurants, too. I'm about to head into one of my favorite breakfast spots called Rise and died with a couple of friends. So once I get in there and get my food, I'll show you guys that it looks like look at that cheese. There's a but that really alone. Welcome to Murder three forty eight. Well, thiss my beautiful remake, A birdie. This is our at simple cute. So with these rooms, we have a smaller sink area and a cute little mirror. We have a little sticker here from our friend. It's really, really cute. Each room comes with a closet area. This is my cause. It it's beautiful S o We It comes with shells like you put stuff on. I just have a little pantry over here, but it's up to you. What you want? You could hang stuff, have a long, three, amber, Whatever. And this is mine closet, but it is currently blocked off because it's really messy. Can't fit a whole pile of clothes there if you like. Beautiful. And this is just your decision. You can make anything you want to all your snacks, all your, you know, wash stuff, you know? And also, each room comes with two desks. So that's Kim's desk. This is my desk. And obviously the beds they locked up. This is the highest. They locked up and and Jerry, See if you watch those videos they locked up to about right here, but it's super cute. Super livable and we love. This is Kim's side underneath the beds. As you can see, there is pretty much a lot of space. So I fit about a couple of plastic drawers underneath here that fit like your clothes stuff. And you can put anything you want in there, and each room can have about one refrigerator, one printer and having a printer is really helpful, so you don't have to walk back and forth to the library every time you need to do in a site. So yeah, yeah, I live in East Village is the Since memories a relatively small school are Greek life scene isn't as big a sum of the huge state schools like USC or UNC and things of that sort. But we still do have a really solid Greek presence on campus. We have some different sororities and fraternities, all of which you can rush, enjoying your freshman or sophomore or junior year. There are a ton of fun, all the frats of houses. All the authorities have lodges, and it's a really great time. I mean, Greek life isn't for everybody, so if you're into it, I'd say Go for it. I am personally am in authority myself. I really enjoy. I like the social outlet and I really like the girls and I'm with you. But there are a lot of different social options on campus to. I mean, you could just stay on campus and have a good time with your friends, or you can go out to our neighborhood. Bar and Grill called Maggie is which is totally a dive bar. But you have to go at least once in your four years of memory. Or you could even go downtown Buckhead and go tio. Some of the more popular bars where the adults go and locals. And it's a huge mix of people, so it makes it a really good time. But the Emery presence there is definitely a remarkable autonomous Lovett Autonomous go every weekend. And I mean it's Atlanta There so many fun things to do in Atlanta. So money, different kinds of concerts and museums and outdoor activities in places that you can go and parks and all that good stuff, so you really can not get
