Everyone. I'm here with my friend Ben, and where the Atlanta Dog When Music Festival in Piedmont Park. And so they have a lot of different rides and music and lemon name, and it's a lot of fun. It's really close Toe Oxford, its cloak it in Atlanta, Georgia. And so a lot of college kids come here and just hang out everything to add, Yeah, so we're here and they set up a little carnival amusement park here and been on some of the rides, and that's been really fun. And they have some musicians playing over there, which we haven't been to yet, but we're about to go check that out. Yeah, it's a beautiful day and the sun is setting right now, so it's really pretty house like a nice aesthetic, and it's good for pictures. And the park is really pretty in general. Okay. Yes, I will be entirely honest with you. I am a huge proponent of setting new room with no sound and no distractions, because that's the only way that I could do it. But when I have forty five minutes in between classes and I'm on campus anyway, I love to come up to this secret spot above the Carless Museum, which is a really cool museum on campus that I'll show you guys later. But anyway, it's a super secret private spot that I didn't even know about until my junior year. And it's really, really beautiful and super super nice. So it looks like this up here, tables and chairs. It is a track to get up here. You gotta climb all of those stairs, so not best to do it. I don't like day and it overlooks the entire quad. So you can't really beat these views. It's actually amazing, especially when it's nice outside. So when I do study on campus, this is my good to spot, But keep it a secret, all right? So I'm about to show you guys one of my favorite spots on campus. The views are actually insane. Which doing there Looking at those birds, just let's go. So this is on the tenth floor of the library, and it's called the balcony for a reason, because it is quite literally a balcony that overlooks Atlanta. So take a look at this. Absolutely insane. Has to be my favorite spot on campus by far. So ten for the library. You have to check it out. 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 our main dining hall option on campuses Duck, which stands for the dog's universities. But basically we are renovating our entire campus life center. So I'm currently sitting in our ducklings, which is a sub version of the duck temporarily for students of society. So we've got salad bar. We've got fresh squeezed orange shoes, waffles and pancakes and hot food. All that good stuff. It's actually really, really good. Not bad at all. 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 this is the freshman squad, basically most of the freshmen dorms or in this general area, there are a couple other ones that are on the other side of campus. But for the most part, they're all around here. So we've got Ter Milton. And right here is Longstreet Means, which continues, that is all. Longstreet, My friends, they're humongous. Over in the corner is Raul. That's I see my freshman year Represent and right here is Hamilton homes, so there's a nice big field right in the middle. Everybody will go outside and play and even sunbathe or do whatever they want. Study and a nice day. It's really their space, especially refreshment, to kind of get to know each other and not be thrown into all the upper classmen spaces and 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 So there's a place around Oxford in Covington Spirit called scoops, where they have ice cream, lots of lots of candy and chocolate. And this is a really good place. Precautions to go chill before finals or after finals. Or, like in between studying a little. Just sit down these cute little booths and eat some ice cream and chocolate with friends. And so this is like my third time here. But I love it, and I'm definitely coming back again.
