Why I wanted to work with CampusReel Flannery O'Connor Hall, Loyola Univeristy Maryland

So right now, I'm in a typical little a classroom. It's not that big. It's not one of those die enormous amphitheaters. Typically, my classes have about thirty other students in them, and I really like that because it encourages professors to get to know Studentsnames. Now that I'm a senior, I have been able to get to know a lot of the other kids in my class. I'm a global studies major, so I've taken a lot of classes in different departments. Butter School also has a pretty significant core curriculum. So if you like a strong liberal arts education, this school is great for that. But if you just want to kind of focus on your major and nothing else, you're not. I'm going to enjoy the fact that you have to take a couple philosophy courses, English courses and because we're a Jesuit school Wait do have to take theology. Also, I guess I would say a lot of my classes are lectures, but they're really interactive like professors. Ask a lot of questions. They really try to make sure you understand what's going on and are engaged with the class. And there's a lot of effort into making sure that classes are at least interesting, if not fun. I've had a really great academic experience here at Loyola. I have had a lot of great professors, and I think that's partially because loyal make sure is that they're really accessible just down the hall from where I'm after, a ton of faculty offices and professors are required to have office hours where they are in their office and available to students. Officers are great because it's a chance to talk to professors about homework, lectures, anything you didn't understand glass. And on top of that, it's a moment to get to know your professors and get a bit of their help in regards Teo applying to grad school and trying to figure out life after college. So here is my bedroom. This He's my side of the room. I bought a headboard as to Danny. Ah, Mabel got tapestries. Um, and then we also lifted our beds. Um, this room faces to the road, and we're on the west side of Newman towers. So over there's the east side of the building is split into two. So this room has no overhead lady. Yeah, that this room has no over home lightning, so we have thes fairy lights all the way around. And we have this off floor lamp and we also have disclaims. Also on ly one closet. It's a little bit messy. Right now we have one closet. And we had to put one of the dressers We're now going to make her way into Boulder to China. Boulder, to point out, is my favorite place to eat on campus. They have a lot of options, including this entire Mediterranean salad bar. They have sandwiches over there and just overall, healthier options way. Also, have a yogurt bar where you could make your own yogurt and it is the price of a meal slight. So boulder to point. I was one of my favorite places to eat because it's never that crowded, and I think the food is better and it had some healthier option downstairs. You can get pizza and burgers and things like that, but it's often rowdy. Um, dinner just started on there, so let's go take a look. No. Boulder also has some outside seating for So this is a be loyal and Notre Dame library. It is connected to Notre Dame's campus over there. Um and so we share materials. And resource is honestly, people don't spend a lot of time in the library here because we have apartments. So we are able, Tio, uh, just study in our room, But let's go take a look. So this is the first floor of the library right now. They have an exhibit right here, but during finals week, they had a waffle stand set up right here. So here we have the help desk, which can help you if you need any sort of sources. All right, computers are accessible here, and people often host classes. Here. I have had teachers move our classes to a classroom just like this, so that we could hear from librarians about how to use the library's database to find research for upcoming research projects. And then this is just a view. Of the first floor of the library. One cool thing that I've never seen before is this Chrissy charging station? I think this is new, but that's really, really helpful for those late nights. All right, let's go. Yeah. So this is an example of another study room that you can reserve thes air smaller. So it's just you in a person, um, you can just come in here and do your work with very few distractions. These air often open except during finals week. So it's easier to our muse. But as you can see, there's a few of them. A lot of hard working students. I think this is a big one, huh? Well, yes. One's bigger. Um, there's someone using it right now, but these tables are also available, and this is just such a quiet space, like most of the library. So I'm sorry that the library is a quiet video. Um, but I haven't spent a lot of time there because we have places to study in our room. We have a quiet areas at the bottom of Newman and all my roommates are really respectful my study time. But it is a good resource if you're doing research. Or, um, if you're doing something for a class like finding a really good place that's consistently quiet is just Where are we? Ten. You have the fact, which is the fitness and aquatic center. You will place your full workout facility. You have an Olympic sized pool. Actually, every now and then you may see Michael Phelps here swimming. All right. You ready to get a workout in? So the fact has to force. Right now, I'm on the bottom for you can see we have three on basketball courts. So these courts down here can be scheduled out. Two different teams that want to play. So if you and your friends would come and play and, uh, compete with another team and maybe a basketball game, pick up basketball game and you're welcome to as long as you sign up on the schedule or the court is open. Here is the basketball courts from above. Uh, right now I'm walking on the tracks in my birds. So right next to the track boil a ce fac has thes rooms, um, over to this side over here, and they are used for the exercise schedule. So Boyle has planned defends with instructors, which give me students or teachers that you can come here and take uh So here are some of the options and my roommate has been some of these I actually happen, but she says that they're really fun, and it's a really fun community to be involved in. They also have group exercise surveys, great here for any input. So another cool thing about these rooms is that when they aren't being used for classes, you can use them to work out. And so I have come in here with my friends and just put down mats and worked out in here because you get a little bit more privacy. So this is a really big Jim. So there's a lot of places to work out if you are like, there's a lot of places to work out. If you're used to working out on your own cool thing about these group exercise classes that you, Khun signed up with, um, I'm right through this up, Um, and by scanning that code, there's a little information palate thing right here. And so it's just really easy. Tio, sign up with it. Additionally, on they have an instagram, or you could follow them to get all your So you're going to college. Wherever you pay, you're gonna finally be on your own, huh? Not to be super super scary, but I really loved all the freedom that I got here. A little of is probably one of my favorite things. Just being able to, like, choose whatever I want todo whatever day if I want to stay in and if I want to go out or whatever, so a typical night end, I Well, we have a week, so that's have we used. It's nice because we have an apartment so I can just hang out in the room. And I'm already surrounded by all my best friends. So another place that we hang out a lot is on the hands in community. It's about like a five minute drive away on DH. It's just a stretch of a bunch of restaurants and little boutiques, which is really good when you need some retail therapy, even though it's kind of crazy. But there's just a lot of fun restaurants there. There's like a waffle store. We can get dessert waffles, theirs a bunch of restaurants where we always go to brunch. Handon is amazing. It's so cute. And then in the winter they have a little festival where this whole street, thirty fourth Street yet thirty fourth Street sets up all these lights and just big Christmas decorations, and it's beautiful But I would say overall, there's just a lot to do around here just cause we're in a city and that's one of my favorite things coming from a rural place. I just really loved being in the city, and now when I go home, I'm like but yeah, but there's always something to do out there just cause we're in a city. There's a range of different restaurants is a lot of Baltimore and Maryland based on chains. So even if you're not going up to bars, there's still a lot to do just in the hand in So we are about to enter the Donley Science Center right behind me. Um, I don't have a lot of classes here because I'm not, uh I actually haven't taken my, uh, national science core, which is required at Loyola, but, um, I have been in here a few times because it is connected to not which is where my mouth cost wass. And where my computer science classes. I think there might be some classes going on in there right now, so I'll try to keep it down. We'll also in it for me, you guys about everything that our science program has to offer. It's very, very quiet in here right now. Maybe classes are done, or maybe they're in session and I'm disrupting people. But I'm here is on the entryway from the closest tree from campus from the quad. Excuse me, but they have seating areas. You have a full view of the chapel right there. These beautiful big windows. A lot of there's a lot of natural light in this building, actually, with all of the windows, you met a scene when I was outside. All right, let's take this upstairs. There's all right. Thank you. So I can't enter this from right now. But this is an example of a teaching. Those is where a lot of your labs will take place if you take a, uh, if you take a science fast, it's a lot of them come with labs on, which can be difficult to get into your schedule. But it's really important to get your work done in these labs when you take a science course here. So this is an example. And see those lab coats. This is an example of a mechanical engineering laboratory. As you can see, all these tables are set up to do group work, Um, and complete labs again, another might not get in. And there is a little fun, Right now, I'm heading over to my friend Elizabeth. She lives in an apartment in a Campion, one of the buildings that is partially inhabited by freshman. And there's also a couple like sophomores and juniors and maybe a few seniors who live here, too. It's the only apartment style dorm that is available to freshman, but then again, it's pretty nice that freshman gets to be able to live in apartments. So, yeah, let's go check out her place. Thank you. Thanks for having me over. How cool Do you want me to show you, right? Yeah, that'd be great. There's a kitchen. Uh wait. Yeah. Seventeen. Grace, This is right. This is This is the small eyes. And that's about one. What? This was the digger. I like the difference. Any of the beds? Because our events are, like, lofted in the other room with the work. You know, you have the cabinets here. That's like pulling a difference. Yes. How do you feel about living in a really big residential building with a ton of other students? Like isn't weird at all? No, I don't think it's. I mean, you don't really notice because it's everything. So spread out like stuff could be going out gone and like the other hauling. You have no idea. I think it's nice because it's so big like yourselves. Friend. How many people are you happy you chose Campion? Yeah, definitely. Like I I want time for the one remaining so I can have more people Yet now so But I definitely like having the kitchen and like all that, Like, it's a lot better living like I could have met. And they have a bathroom too. Like you walks away. But every other bathrooms are sensing. Imagine living in a the two door. So what have you heard about the other freshmen buildings? I like it. I hear the flans. Like, I think the nicest of three, right? Yeah, I think it's like the newer one. And they have, like, they have the bathroom between Ben and planned. I haven't been in the other two guys that you think about me. Oh, well, I'm gonna head out now. Thanks for having me over. I have a I really buy stuff. Staple community. Yeah. You're drinking Starbucks right now. I just can't. I would say that, like, Starbucks is number one beverage of consumption here, like no one goes through their day without having Starbucks. I just grabbed lunch from my school Sushi place. Wei have a couple food options on campus. We have sushi way have Mexican place called Talking Rio. We have this thought called Green Peel, where you could get smoothies, a camp booze. I think that's what they're called and other stuff that involves fruit. Our main dining hall is colder gardens, and they have a couple of different food options there. Each night. They try to have a good ride, But as a vegetarian, I sometimes struggle to find something good to eat there. And but the good thing is that they always have a salad bar that has a lot of different types of Venice's and toppings and sauces dressing, which is always a pretty good option. A lobe. Inexpensive. There is a good sandwich bar. Oftentimes they have begin bologna and ham and chicken and cheese. Even so, that's pretty cool. And sandwiches and wraps there tend to be pretty good. Of course, you customized and last year the added a second level to the Boulder Cafe. Honestly, I don't go there often, but they have some salad and some options up there, too, in the fact our fitness and a product center. There's a pretty good food spot. They're wearing it like sandwiches on healthy eats. After you work out in Newman Towers, where a lot of students live, there is little grocery store of sir shorts, and that's another main of dining spot. Recently, they added a convenience store, two flannery, which is a freshman dorm. So Flannery market. There's just quick dinner options, snacks, drinks. And then in the soldier business school, there's a little market and there that you can find little things to eat when you don't have time to go to dining Huh? So right now I'm at a coffee shop in hand him that is one of Baltimore's super trendy, supercool neighborhoods, and it's great because it's right near my school. It was maybe like a twenty minute walk to get here today, and we walked through like it's a really cute neighborhood, and I just love exploring this city. It's really cute. You get it. Waded art today I just got done working on a group project with a couple of friends, and now I'm just chilling on the trail before I go back home. Um, I just wanted let you guys know a bit about what night life is like here at Loyola. Um, what's nice is that our school is pretty essentially located, and there's a lot of stuff going on around us were pretty close to a lot of universities to the North. Thirst House in a little bit like a fifteen minute walk away from us, is John Hopkins. And just Baltimore is home to a lot of schools. So our location is pretty nice because Towson has a lot of bars and like places like Applebee's and green turtles. And there's also like a pretty big mall over there pretty close to campus. There's Alonzo's, which I guess would count as our local bar. There's also Zen. There's a lot of different venues in the city, and pretty much like whatever you're interested in that you can probably find here. So what? That said, our school is pretty much a bar school, so if you're not twenty one, you really need a fake to participate in our lot. A lot of our big traditions, we don't have Greek life, but a popular place ago is power plant. And a couple of times a year they have this thing called Rally, which is a huge day drinking event. Um, I guess that replaces tailgating for us because we don't We don't tailgate here. But if you're not into going out and drinking, there's a lot of great cultural activities do around here. Maybe a twenty minute walk away is the Baltimore Museum of Art, which is free to go to, which is awesome. Um, there's a lot of other museums and cultural places here because Baltimore is a pretty historic city. And, um, like the guy who invented the weedy board, is buried in a grave yard. Near here, Ed, you're Alan. Poem. Um he used to live down town, and his grave is down there, too. Um, there's the Maryland Zoo. There's the Maryland Aquarium and Baltimore also has a lot of historic arts district. There's a lot of mural and art just all over the place in the city, so
