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 Okay, so I'm sitting here on the quad. It is a beautiful day out on I'm sitting in front of the Statue of St Ignatius, which is one of the most iconic loyal of marketing pictures. So I figured I'd give you guys a CEO of where I am Claude. And also it's beautiful with the cherry blossoms right now while they're in bloom. So yeah, just kind of enjoying sitting outside and enjoying the day in the beautiful weather. Right now, it's the day that everybody is leaving for Easter break. I'm staying on campus, so it's a really peaceful, really nice and just a great time to relax and get some work done. Quad it. Leah was really the centre of academic life. All of their buildings that have classes are located on the quad, and this is like one of the things that makes little agree, even though it is a medium sized school. All of your classes are centrally located, and it just is a beautiful, well kept nice area, and it's really easy to run in between classes and passing times for classes. During the day, this will be bustling and on early warm days this will be filled with people in hammocks on link. It's and just really enjoying Hey, guys. So I'm standing here in Salinger Hall. At bottom. This is our business school. So you're a business major. You will have a lot of classes here and spending a lot of time in here. This is one of the most beautiful academic buildings on campus because it is designed after Noah's Ark. I have been started some shots in this video to show you the beautiful architecture. But it is five floors, I believe, and honestly, just beautiful. Even though I am an English major, I will sit in here and you work for, like, half meetings just because it is so nice. Plus, I'm in our room and Salinger looks like, um is just a nice space for people to sit and have a good conversation. There's also a decent amount of, like, different element here chalkboard, a smart board, a whiteboard. And then there is a projector that comes down. You can see there. I actually do a programme called Soon Lead Seminars, and my class is in this room. It is really comfortable and kind of like closed off nice open space to sit and have great conversation. One of the other tree marks of Salinger is the TVs, Teo, business and news stations as we d. The stocks are going so really gives you a deep. It's Miss Fuller vibes whenever you are in here. This is on the second technically third floor of Salinger Welcome to Newman Towers. So when you look in your face, Inglis while entrance hallway we have some lights hanging up in some pictures just to make it feel more ***. Smoke detector. And there's a whole way late. We have these key hooks hanging up that I made for my roommates there. Six months lived here, but, um, at the switch of this masters, we had two people leave to go abroad and people move in. That's why there's eight. Let me just have some art hanging up some campuses that I painted again to make it more ***. Go and we have a calendar or painting. Just some decorations. Make it ***. It's the first English use our kitchen a little bit messy right now. This is, honestly, the worst part of this apartment against six of us. Live here is really small. I don't know if you can get that by, but it's not a lot of room for six people. It's a lot of us have other little storage areas to keep our food. As you can see, the counters gets covered with people doing their dishes and yeah, so it's not the best, but it works for what it is. We have our fridge. It as you see we actually have a second fridge. So if you go into the living room, there's our second fridge. So our fridge was just not big enough to comedy for all of us. So maintenant to put in a second one. It was really nice. These two wardrobes that you see out here go to that bedroom and there they just don't fit in there. That's the smallest bedroom. It's actually used to be a dining room. What? This was apartment housing assisted living facility, which is what this used to be. So we have our dining room table and then just a storage room. That's our alcohol fridge. A lot of my army to twenty ones. Who you're a lot have alcohol in the apartment. We just keeping us up. Fridge. This is our little seating area. It's pretty cozy. We put um, some sheets over the couch is just to make it feel more *** and some decorations on the wall of a photography minor. So how's the art hang up. We have a beautiful view of the park and then lights hanging up and our TV. I have some painting supplies down there because I just love to paint in my free time and then off of this is the first bedroom. So this is the smallest bedroom. I mean, it works. They're certainly it like enough room to live and be comfortable, but it is smaller. This is about the small bedroom that you can have it. Lila causes don't fit. But you know, it works and they're comfortable began just our dining room table. It's what it looks like. We moved it around a lot just to make sure that everyone was comfortable and at the space feels more open. So we're going to continue down the hallway through a bunch of closets so we don't actually use most of our closets. We don't have a purpose for them. Like you just kind of have some extra bins. Grocery bags in there. In here, we just have our vacuum and some winter coats because pretty warm right now, this closet we do use a lot of this is all of our cleaning supplies. Usually there's toilet paper and paper towels down there, but we're running out section could make a note of that go to the store. Send brings his second bedroom. So again, too. You will live here. This is like a pretty normal sized bedroom at Loyola. Come on. So just give you a tour. So yeah, they really like living in here. It's a good space for them again. They decorated it. So they have this one. Big closet is for one person, which is really nice. And then they have this other wardrobe for the second person. Works out really well for them windows again. Um, it's a nice space. Those two bedrooms. So the one I just showed you in the one, um before they share this bathroom since their bathroom, it is pretty tight. They don't usually keep their stuff in here. Hi. Um, so they have just a stand in shower. Um, you can see this kind of keep their stuff on the floor. It works for them. Cool. It's functional in this tiny little area. Um, this apartment's old. So, like, little things are missing. Like this toilet paper dispenser rack. It's missing in my bathroom to a lot of them. Have sinks like this. Say, do you have the mirror with some A little bit of extra story space, which helps, so continue on. And that brings us to my bedroom. Um, I just have a little white board up says Reminder explained grace, mercy and love to each other. It's a tough world out there. Don't make it tougher. Um, so when you walk in and I will note that I have the biggest bedroom by far, but we walk in, we have our standing mirror get ready during the day and again, just a little bit of a painting. The on ly overhead light we have in here is right here. Actually, um so that is one really big downside to this room is that we had to buy extra lighting. But anyways, you walk in and here is the bathroom. So just me and my roommates share this bathroom, and, you know, we're using every ounce of space, um, again, more art. Hang on the wall. We actually have a full set of which is really nice. I will take a bath. So it works out. And then I brought this shelf just to make some extra storage room. And then again, we have one of the mirrors with storage and what's really nice to have these vanity lights. So there is actually pretty good lighting in here, and then some more storage underneath there. We just keep more cleaning supplies in there. Okay, Well, we have two big closets. So the first one, this is my room mates Closet. She has a walk in closet. Um, so yeah, so she has a lot of room to step in there, Keep her stuff. Just totes in there. This is my cause it when you step in. So I have a ton of stuff in here. Most of my clothes are in here. I keep my laundering here. My shoes, totes, jackets. Um, this is really, really helpful storage space for me. And then when you walk in, you have my roommate's bed stop, and she has her light, her dresser and all for decorations. And then she uses her desk mostly just to do her make up in the morning. So she hasn't set up for that. Continue. This is my side of the room. I find it really important to have a nicely decorated space, so I put a lot of work into decorating the side of the room. Um pretty clean right now. So I have flowers. Hang by my bed. I have my bed kind of lost it up. So I have a ton of storage underneath this kind of hidden and then my desk Come. I made this cute little photo wall area and calendars. Um, it was really nice. And then I have these two things which I brought. So I have my mug holder that I actually made, and then I'm an English major. So I have my read a *** book signed with a bookshelf and just a nice little area carpet. It's nice and soft, and I love coming home to it. Be out. Basically, that's it. So that basically wraps up the tour portion of Newman where I live right now as a junior, Um, it is usually sophomore in junior year housing gins, not my favorite place to live. Last year I lived in scene court in substance free housing. I personally like that a lot better just because of the location. It was closer to campus. This is the furthest you can live in from campus. That's not senior side. And I also kind of like the setup of those apartments better, and I found it to be quieter. But some people, some my roommates like living here a lot better. I will say that we are on the fourth floor of a nine storey tower. So our upstairs neighbors and our downstairs neighbors on the weekends are super loud, which is this kind of luck of the draw. You can't really predict how that's gonna happen, but we've learned to deal with it. I sleep with a white noise machine on, and that helps a lot, definitely investing a white noise machine. Um, for any school that you decide to go to and yeah, that's basically it. I hope you've enjoyed your tour of human towers and that I hope so. You decide what college is right for you and what the housing is like. A different schools, um, loyal a handsome, great housing and is definitely one of the sellers Yeah, well, I'm super stoked. I'm hanging out here with my friends. Okay, Sarah, thanks for making food. It's super easy to cook stuff here because a lot of the apartments have, like, full kitchens and way usually just hang out here in our apartment playing games, play video games. I get a good game of Mario brawl going, and today we're just gonna stay in and watch the Super Bowl, and I'm pretty stoked, even though I don't pay any attention. Typical, but go team. Wait. So it's after the Super Bowl game and I'm just chilling here with my friends were playing way. It's super fun. I'm pretty good at this game. I went sometime, so it's okay, but it gets pretty 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 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, 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 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
