Itself. I just want to We're walking to Lamont Library right now while we're walking. I just wanted to let you guys know a little more about Harvard academics. So Harvard academics. So a lot of classes during two types of classes they're reading classes and your piece set or problem set classes so allowed to stem classes are problems that classes while ought to humanity's and stuff like that. It's reading base. You read a lot. You're right a lot on DSO. You want a diverse mix when you're taking out that makes here on Every class has a lecture, usually and from lecture. Use them off and do something called sections. Sections are where a little. It's like groups of ten to twenty people from your lecture who don't get paired with a TIA on which is a teaching fellow. A grad student who is supporting that class on DH US go either date. TF either read like teachers The entire lesson or yes, have discussions. For example, in psychology. What we do is we have readings for every section. We just talk about the readings to be about the psychological effects and stuff like that. I just want to show you guys wind your library again. The steps are actually quite famous. People go here, you know, out wine, your library house like the reputation of being like very quiet. You're not You don't really talk if you one of you when you go to like a whiner, it's like very much like individual studying, intent, working method and something really agree about Harvard is all the classes run on Harvard time. Harvard Time is, that is one you can be late to any class seven minutes. So it's not that you you're late. It's a class off classes always start seven minutes after. So for example, if you're on the sill of us, it's us. We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from ten o'clock to love in a clock. It's really Tuesdays and Thursdays from ten o seven to eleven o'Clock. You're given that seven minute window period. Personally, that's very useful for me because I never wake up until, like, nine fifty a night rush and I get there by ten. No. Five and I'm still early and class hasn't started yet. Yeah, we're almost certain. Library. I'll show you gets more about Lamont and the Marching band. They just put on the little performance. I just missed it. That's a huge base that they carry around. Be strong. The daycare around. Yeah, and they're known for their like crimson colored jacket, black pants. They go around sometimes in the middle of the day, just playing for us today. It was because we had the Dartmouth Harvard game, which brings me to football games. So football games are bigger. Any other college here at Harvard, we don't really football games. It's less about the football games. It's really no law. People go. That's unfortunate. But we do have something called the game, and the game happens every year between Harvard and Yale. This year it's at Yale, and basically it's this huge rivalry game. It's really big. I'll be going to Yale in the month to see the game. It's something that everyone goes through. So even though football isn't stopped, big on the game So this is a faculty club. The host dinners and stuff here, so you can eat what the faculty the faculty are allowed. And yeah, it's really nice if you get involved, it's like on their date. Do you like different lotteries so that you can LA trade to eat with, Ah, professor on the send emails about it? And so it's a real honor, because not many people are chosen. It's about like six people that get to eat like a professor. So, yeah, a lot of things that Harvard, our lottery, especially because we have extraordinary people. Come, for example, we had Sean Spicer last week for three days, and you could lottery to be. His light is on So like, you just he just follows you around or you just all of him around all day, like except when you have classes and stuff. And then we hade different people. There was a Bernie Sanders a spotting I want a very cafes. We also had five Supreme Court justices and one retired Supreme Court justice here on campus a few days ago and stuff like that. People are just here all the time. We have famous journalist to be a famous TV anchors and stuff like that. People like that who come here and give like lectures and just talk to us. There is something called directors dinners where you can lock tree to have dinner with these people. There is a director. Most recently, it was Sean Spicer This week. It's what the political commentary Mom, a person who is also an author, real famous and self like God. So yeah, coming to Harvard has its perks and that people really like coming here and talking to us. So I promised to show you guys some upperclassman dormitories. Andi, I talked to you guys about the renovation project. Went through a pass right here was the most recently. It was most recently renovated. It was home to JFK, I believe right there, in between where that little power is. Elliot, how's Elliott house? Um, it is, I don't think has been renovated yet. Right next to is Kirkland. And Kirkland was home to Mark Zuckerberg. Andi, this is where he lived. This is really developed a Facebook and everything s oh, Elliott house and went to her past has something called the Grill. So the grill is This is a late night like snot, please. They serve burgers, french fries, milk shakes, ice cream. And you think that you can imagine, like, comfort food cravings. And they opened from ten to twelve week. We'd nights and from ten to two a. M. On weekends. So it's a great place to grab food when you're hungry at night. And do you accept board? Plus that sixty five dollars. But everyone gets in the beginning of this semester that I was talking to you guys about, um and yeah, this is the perfect time to talk about dining at Harvard. So every house upperclassmen house has their own dining dining hall on and all the first years an ember. But you're also allowed to, as a first, like Inter House is, like amongst different houses on certain nights. And on Thursday nights, most houses, how something called community dinners were only people from that house can eat glier covered your arse, um, upperclassmen, housing that has, like restrictions. So it's like if you live in the house, you can eat there and you can bring one other person. But if you don't know anyone who lives there, you're not allowed to eat there. But, yeah, they have that. And also there's something called brain break that happens from that happens every night from Sunday to Thursday. It's like from ninety ten ish. They have food out for you to eat. Sometimes we have like a mocking cheese bar, which is amazing, saying he has like hot dogs and stuff the other day. But other times it's just like toast and cereal, which is also find it fills you up. Um, but yeah, so you have access to all that So, guys, this is my friend Kevin. He's in UC under construction with Mito Acapella Group on DH. He volunteered to answer some questions. So coming Can you just, like, introduce yourself and explain why you chose Harvard? I've been in this company, you say? My name is Kevin, you say, And the reason why I chose Farber was because I want it. I wanted to top into the resources and the opportunities that campus had, and also to I like the community here, both the faith based community and also like a black community here. Great. So described this community that you're talking about what's like this doing body like at the school. So I went to the third most diverse public school in Massachusetts, and yet still, Harvard is extremely even more diverse than that school. So I really like the student body here. Everybody's really supportive and open until, like understanding each other's backgrounds and diverse perspectives. I actually very shocked by that when I came to So this is huge In library, it's a library for are rare book collections, and this is Lamont Library. Mama is one of the most commonly used library's. A lot of students have a love fondue or rather stressful memories. Here. I actually pulled three all nighters already in this library. It's open twenty four seven. Andi. It's very nice because it has a cafe. The this window faces a cafe area and cafe can be used in these board, plus on copies. So boy Plus is something is sixty five dollars that you get on your ID card on every semester and it transfers over to the next semester, but not over to the next year. So fall semester transfers over to spring semester. But then it's gone for next year, so you get sixty five dollars a semester and you can use that, um on cafes, certain certain business, like restaurants of food places at Harvard Square and other places like that. But sixty five dollars really comes in to use when it's like one a m in the morning. And you're you need that extra jolt of like energy. So you go to Lamont, get yourself a little donut and coffee and it it's really refreshing. But, yeah, that's a month, and Houston is not as commonly used, but it's tough. But it's one of the few libraries that's open to the public so long, people like going in there. So if you ever visit campus, I'm going to see you can't go in there. The ice. We had Starbucks. Right now you're craving a late night drink tea bond. To be more specific, she's got me hooked on the mango. Blocky lemonades. Ten out of ten recommended. This Starbucks is open until twelve a m. What they didn't know. So yeah, it's a great place to work because on Sarah, these deliveries actually close at ten. Mom's a phaser close. The library's closed, sir. You really can't. I work here, but now it just Hey, guys, My name is Sun. Welcome to Harvard. I am going to show you guys around Harvard today and show you guys what it's like to be a Harvard student. You'll see different buildings, different life aspects and stuff like that. I'm really excited to show you guys around. Hopefully, this gives you a really good idea of what Harvard's like, but to start off. I won't be telling you guys about the typical Harvard introduction, because this is the introductory video video I heard What you do is you always when you meet someone, you you always state your name, your grade, where you live, which is also called a house and your concentration in any other place. It means major, but here at Harvard, we call it concentration. So, for example, I would say hello. My name is Sung. I live in Hollis. I'm a freshman, and I am currently undeclared, but I'm leaning towards government or psychology. It just simply means that I'm thinking about taking becoming a government or it's, um, psychology. Concentrate. So anyways, I'm so excited to meet you guys and to show you guys around Harvard hope you guys So I just finished cross section and we just had a discussion on meditations I day card. And now I am in the tercentenary theory, which is the New York. It's right next to the car. Um, this is where they're different buildings. This is severed hope. That's where I have one of my sections. I just came of hope beyond this. Trees. This is Memorial Church. Your services here every Sunday That's a freshman dormitory. That university hall diamonds, Really? Another freshman dormitory. And this is wine Earth. This is like the biggest private library questioning. I believe, um, in all the world, and they're fifty miles worth of books like bookshelves. So you could basically run. You could be sleeping on team marathon. So without having two go pi a book Hi, guys. So I'm actually a tour guide on campus, so I just finished my tour and we end up at Harvard Square.
