I just want to take a moment today to tell you about the loyal of first year housing selection process. Uh, freshman, kind of unsure of what housing is gonna look like your first time living with somebody. So your first year during summer orientation, they're going to ask you most likely to fill out a survey. So this survey will ask you things like, what time do you go to bed? What time do you liketo wake up? Can you sleep with Lifetime? Can you sleep with a lot of noise? What type of music do you like? Toe? Listen, Tio, um what does your schedule look like? What's important to you and I'll be these really, really important questions. They also ask you things like, do you find important to be best friends with your roommate? Or are you kind of quiet and just kind of want to coexist with your roommate? And you can write all of these things on a scale. Closer to your actual movement date, you'll get paired with your new roommate. You'LL get their contact information, and that's who you'LL be living with. If you know somebody that's going to the same school or if you meet someone at summer, Oh, that you really think that you could mess with. That's what I did, because if you meet someone at summer or you have a friend in high school number one, then you're confining your friend groups. Just that person, those people and a roommate is a great way to get to new no more people, but also the process that little has actually really great. I still live with my randomly paired roommate from freshman year. It worked out great for us and a few of my other friends. Still, they're best friends are their freshman year roommates and even people whose housing situation's didn't necessarily work out. It wasn't anything crazy Trask tick that affected their living style. That living situation, everyone's living styles was a paired up really well, and in the few few instances that it's not, you are given a move week at the beginning of both so ministers where you can move no questions asked into a open slot in a different apartment. If the problem comes up throughout the semester that you really can't resolve your aura and student life will work with you to move apartments. So it's really just a great, great process the rest of your years, you are accountable for making your own roommate group. Make sure that you're moving in with people that you can really live well with because it makes a big difference. I live with people that I have a someone living style Teo on DH that has made my life a lot easier because my close friends and I do not have the same sleep schedule, and I know as much as I love them, I wouldn't be able to live with them. So there are things like that to consider your first year here. Able Teo choose if you would like apartment style housing or traditional dorm style housing. So traditional broom style house in comes in a few different forms here. Ler's where I lived my first year and what is nooks S O. The floors are by gender. So the first two floors of Butler my freshman year, where veil and the top two floors were female. There are four notes on every floor with a bathroom and eight to ten people share that bathroom. Then there is a Flannery O'connor in Flannery that is the nicest freshman dorm Everyone wants to live in Flattery. I have a friend that lived there is really nice. If you select dorm style housing, you will be placed in one of those apartments with your roommate, and it will usually be based on what Messina here in which is our first year program. You'LL live most likely around people that are in the same Messina program as you, just so that you have your core group of friends or people that you have, um, known or have familiar faces around you your first year and kind of helped to ease that anxiety. Believe me, Butler was not my first choice, but it worked out. If you decide that you don't want that traditional storm experience, then you can choose to live in Campion. Campion is an apartment building that is for freshmen and sophomores, so that is apartment style Housing you have a kitchen, a bathroom or to bathroom is depending. If you're in a six a common room they're really, really nice. It's not for everybody or for living with more people that way. So you know more chance that you're not going to get along with your roommates. Traditionally, people that like to party will live in campaign in the apartment style just because you know more space. Um, so that is something to consider of what lifestyle really is going to be vast in the freshman experience that you want. I have friends that did both, and it worked out for everybody. Those are kind of the two options that you're giving your first year here at loyal and again, there's always the option to move. So please don't have excited about housing, because if there's one thing little does right, it is first your housing.
