The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I am from home down New Jersey and I am a communications major, a freshman. The moment I came to campus, I really felt so welcomed and that they really prepare you for the road outside of college and that they were really gonna help you and push you to be the best you could be while you're in school and wire out of school. What is the student climate like? Does our school have any stereotypes? What'd you say we are? Consider. Maybe about five thousand undergrad. I would personally like that because, you know, you walk around campus and you do see familiar faces and everyone's friendly and very welcoming. Um, starting times, I feel like we're known as more fancy school because of what our school looks like, But I don't really think that's true. I think we're all very well around it in where we come from and what our backgrounds are. So it's a stereotype, just I don't buy into it It's Joe. We have a lot of different meters on campus and were very balanced in who? There's not one major that is more popular than the other. Each different school is very good at their own individual thing. I have a lot of friends who are business majors but also communications majors like myself. So it's a very well balanced, and you meet a lot of people outside of your major. The classes are on the smaller side, like normal high school classes, like around twenty to thirty students, which again I like because you get more one on one with the professor and you get better. You got to work better with the students who there's not a lot of you. What would you say are like the pros and cons of High Point? There are a lot of protocol, High Point. Like I said earlier, It's a very pretty campus, which is very nice. Just walk around and appreciate how pretty the campuses, the professor's air. They're always available for help, and if you might, you might need like, questions. We have a lot of connections, I think, which helps us in the professional long run, because we get to meet these people, our students, and then go into the workforce and worked with, um and they're like, no r name. There are two Starbucks is on campus, which very convenient. We hear a lot of different food options that you could choose someone. We also have the arcade in the movie theater, which you're nice prose, because you get to relax and go hang out with friends and kind of forget about work for a minute and stayed on campus and have fun. There's not a lot of spaces and driving on campus. It's kind of difficult, but having your car means you can go out and explore outside of campus because there are a lot of things to do around the area. Pie Point and into Greensboro, another con is housing is a little difficult. All the housing is great and there's really are no bad options. The process is a little difficult and staying on campus as opposed to the off campus housing. They're all very comfortable and very nice and new, and they look very nice. It's just staying on campus is difficult, as opposed to being two minutes away off campus. What makes high point different and unique is that we actually have a steak house on campus and its regular meals. We're all to go once a week to make a reservation. They're hard to come by, but when you get one, it is nice, Teo and it's supposed to teach you etiquette and how to properly eat in a fine dining restaurant. They teach you howto what's which fork is for what howto cut your meat properly and stuff like that so that when you do go on, let's say job interviews or when you're dining with your firm, you know howto properly die in a fine dining restaurant and you're not overwhelmed by that because you are surrounded by that throughout college. That's a nice thing that they have that makes us different. On what advice would you give to your senior self? Um, if I had to give advice to my senior self, I would say side Just because you were coming to a college and know where you're going doesn't mean the work stops. You know, seniors kind of tend to think like, Oh, I know where I'm going kind of slack off. That's not true, because then coming back into school the next following August is a very difficult transition, and you kind of forgot like, Oh, wait, work's not done. I now have to do it in college, but now by myself, so you can't lose sight of that. You're still in school yourself to work hard, but you can allow yourself more breaks because you do know where you're going and you're all set.
