Hey, guys. So I'm here with my roommate Mary again, um, and also a girl that I just met. His name is Macy, and we're actually in the engineering building right now. So Macy is going to tell you a little bit more about what happens in the engineering building. Okay, so I am a food science major, actually not an engineering major. Even as a food science major, I still have a lot of class is in the engineering building. I think it's really made a really positive impact on my academic career. I've had sensory classes as well as larger lectures. Actually, most of the just like that. So their small, it's more and you really get to know your There's also lots of resources and the engineering building. Lots of computers, different rooms for diversity meetings and things like that. So it's a really great place to be. And I'm really happy to have classes in the engineering built. Cool. Yep, And that's just a little Hey, guys. So I'm here with my friend Joey. Hello. And he's here to just talk a little bit about the classrooms that we have in Michigan State, like the one we're standing in right now, So right now we're in business college complex. This is a rather common type of classroom was rather high tech, actually. So each person has their own individual destiny. You could see that's pretty Colin. But you have these podiums scattered around the room, which is super nice because there's outlets on the podiums and especially to help recitations. We have TVs around the room in orderto project, the teaching assistants message, going along with that, a little more manual type of teaching. We have white boards in front of us on a projector, which is commonly used in classrooms. Other than that, there's a couple of types of classrooms. And here in Michigan State that you'll see there's this one, which is a rather modern science classroom. There's computer labs, which are a little bit smaller than this, and, I imagine, filled with computers, you could do most like CS classes in there. Then there's large lecture halls, which you'll pretty much see in your everyday generated classes. Especially like chemistry, physics, math. Um, really? Anything? Anything. Business accounting. Yeah, that's about it. Sweet. Thank you, Joey, for giving us a little rundown on our classrooms. Hey, guys. So here I am s u game day. We're actually playing our rival. You have them?

Currently eleven ten about Levitan still got it Blankets in the dryer. Laundry. No booth. You don't even know why. So how was your day? It was good. You know, you're like a fucking troll. Everybody wants all That was our day semester. But days give you breaks. You go home and party. Hey, guys. So I'm here with my roommate Mary and her lovely fish he has here. Oscar. Oscar. Um, And yeah. I'm just gonna do a little interview with Mary. So, Mary, why don't you introduce yourself and explain why you chose to come back with you? Okay. Yeah. So I'm married Green and I came here. Um, some of you might think this is kind of a dumb reason, but I don't know, I just love it. Um, my third grade teacher, she was a huge influence on my life, and all she talked about was Michigan State and how she went there and how her kids went there. And I just like I really looked up to her. And so she was a big influence on me coming here and just pushing me to work super hard to get into, like, this level of the school on DH. So I came here because it's honestly been, like lifelong childhood dream of mine. Sweet. Okay. Um, then the next question is described what the student body is like here. Oh, my gosh. So diverse. And that's just its super cool, because it's like you'll be walking down the streets and like and the sidewalks stuff for me. I came from a very rural town, very white America. And so it's just really cool because I now have friends who go here who are different than me. And that's just good for like my mindset about the world and honestly teaches you about so many different types of people. That's sweet, Okay? And then the next question is, what's your major? And what is the academic climate like? So I am a criminal justice major and the academic climate not just from my major, but honestly, for all of them. It's it's kind of weird to describe its like we're really competitive, but also, at the same time way want to help everyone because we all want, Oh, what? We're all here. We're all the people who came from high schools, where like we may be. We're like some of the best students who went to those high schools on DH then. So we come here and when you like, bring together like the best of the best, it's like there there could be some people who are like, I need to stay the best, and I don't care what I do. But then they're also it's like, Well, I also love when other people do super well, so it's like everyone's super into being the top, but also they want everyone to be a part of the job, You know, it's just weird. Yeah, that's really cool. Then I would agree with what Mary said. So I last question for you is what is your favorite and least favorite thing about? Okay, so my favorite thing about MSU is the new mind set that has given me about the world and about how people could be different for me. But different doesn't need bad, Different can be super beautiful, and it's like it makes me appreciate so many different walks of life and cultures that I never even thought about that much. So that's super. And then the thing might least everything. Probably just like I love my family. And I love the people like you know who are back in my hometown and stuff. Being away from them is sometimes hard and like For me, it's like it just now are away. So I need to see them. Then I can go back home pretty easily. But like I do hate being away from them. So it's That's probably the worst part. I would definitely agree. Yeah, but thank you very much. I got. So we're Shaw cafeteria. This is some options here. This is my friend kitsch. Kish. How's the food at the cafeteria? It's actually looking pretty good today. It's another good day Charge. Yeah. Yeah. Do you have a lot of options? Uh, do they got they got a few options? Depends on the day I spent some time physical go. And if you don't like some of the food they always have, salad is going on. Sorry. But yeah, Shot cap is one of small caps, but it's centrally located on. A lot of people actually do come here. It's got a lot of colors, which I find really. Yeah. They also do have deserts over here, and they mix it up all the time, actually looks really good today. And then over there they have Chinese food for you, and then they have more options. Hey, guys. So we're here at a famous spot on Msu's campus, and it is the rock, and I have Mary here to explain what's going on with this rock in particular? Yes. So this is rock. It's like, majorly famous here in Michigan state clubs, organizations I know stuff like fraternities, sororities, literally. Whoever come and paint this rock, whatever they want to, basically, as long as it's not bashing anyone. And it's not like hate speech like customer and stuff like that. At this point, we have gotten so much pain on this broad that, like probably the rock itself like this on the rest of it is paint like Isn't that insane? It has that much paint on it, and people are gonna keep painting on it for years. And so then over here. What's near? Um is we have our river? So I thought I'd show you guys this as I, uh, say goodbye and exit. Uh um, This tour. I hope you guys really enjoyed it. I certainly had a lot of fun. Especially doing it with my roommate Mary. Um, and just other people we got to talk to on the way. Um, but, yeah, here we actually have a open land to which is nice. And some, um, authorities and fraternities come here to do things. Um, but yeah, there's a ton of graffiti down here. Don't know how clean this. I won't really show it all, but I just want to show you like our river that we have Yeah. So it is super beautiful. Um, I love it. The fact that this, uh, runs through msu's campus. Um, but yeah, I hope you guys really enjoyed the tour. Um, and go green, go. Supposed to show you guys that day in the life But I'll do you one better I'll show you a week in the life or like close to a week in alive occurs.

There was a woman in this chair. Woman? Yes, very first. Two jobs as a college student. Uh, doable. Stressful. Yeah. No longer do I recommend it? No, I probably know, but darn it. Hey, guys. So for this video, I'm going to give you a little tour of my dorm room. Uh, fair warning. It's not the cleanest. This is just a typical dorm room. Uh, is my sophomore year, so I chose to live, uh, in the dorms for my second year. You as a freshman, you do have to live in the dorms. Um, and then after your freshman year, uh, it's optional. I chose to continue living in the doors because of how convenient it is. And with the meal plan that you get, um, Yeah, So there's two types of dorms. Um, there's a sweet style or community style. And what that means, Uh, my type of dorm is a sweet style, So I have one other roommate that I live with, and then we share a bathroom with, um, another room right next door, and we actually live with the are A So there's only one person living in the room next door. Um, most of you will have just two other freshman students. Azi remains. So the four of you will share a bathroom. So that is the sweet sound. So then there's also community style, so some of the other dorms. Our community, Which means you and your roommate just live together in a royal. Um, and then there's no bathroom connected to room. But down the hall, if you walk, uh, there would be a bathroom That's for the entire hall. Um, so your whole like your girl will be all girls. So you have, um, uh, community style bathroom, like, kind of, like a public bathroom. And there would be showers in there, Um, and everything you need in there. So it's just whatever your preference is. Uh, if you want your bathroom close to you, if you want it farther away, if you want to share with people, um, the creative style bathroom does he cleaned all the time. So that's a bonus with your sweet style bathroom. It is not. So that's up to you. Um, how clean you want it to be. So, yeah, I'll just give you a tour. Of what? My room So this is my bed. Um, as you can see, I have it. Do you lofted? It's your choice. If you want lofted or not, can also move around any of the furniture. Um, my roommate has her bed lofted. We have a nice food, Thanh and, um, her desk. We also have the weak for fun and games. Um, this is what our closets look like. That split in half since my stuff. That's her stuff. Um, they give us a dresser, Um, which is plenty of space, uh, for what we need. And then this is what a bath. Looks like. You got a little shower. Um, the toilet. They got nice places where you can hang your towels, sync and everything you need. And then this is my, uh, suite mate. Um, room. So she just has one bed, and then she's a lot more space because it's just her living here. Yeah, that's what the dorm room looks like. You guys. All right? Now, I'm and we're taking a little break from classes today. Uh, few my friends are over right now they're playing Mario car. As you can see, uh, right behind me. Um, yeah, this is typically what college kids do when they have free time is, uh, well, for our room we have Mario Kart because I personally love Marty, and I'm playing on my free time. But, yeah, this is This is typically one collisions. Teo, there's other video games that they do like on X box or in a fortnight is huge. Yeah, it's It's nice when you have free time during the day or in between classes where you could just stop it, hang out with some friends. Yeah. Hey, guys. So in this video, I'm going to be talking about how I found my roommate and some little dorm room essentials that I have in my room that would really benefit when you come here. So how I found my roommate is when I first applied to Michigan stay and got accepted. Um, they're sending me emails of, like, information of what I needed to know, um, for a Opie and all that. So they sent me an email giving me information how I could find a roommate. And one of those ways is through room sink on Facebook. Um, so if you go to Facebook, you, Khun, search for its just called room, saying, um and there you can sign up with your name, your school, and they're, er, you know, And if you fill out some other information about yourself, um, just kind of what you are expecting for a room may. And, like, um, what kind of things you didn't high school. It will give you some suggestions of which kind of roommate. Um, would you probably most likely get along with, Um, so I kind of like pears you up. It's kind of like a dating website on losses. What people like to compare it to, um and I found it really beneficial. Um, I got toe message. Um, other girls on their seeing if they were interested, are looking for a roommate. Um, so, yeah, I did that. And then one girl introduced me to this group chat that they somehow had going. And so she added me to a group meet group chat with bunch of other girls. Just talk about how they're coming. And I see their freshman year. Um, and so I said a little bit about myself in that, and that's where, uh, my roommate, freshman year reached out to me. Um, we kind of live near each other, so we kind of knew each other. Wass, Uh, And then we got to meet up. Yeah, we were roommates for freshman year and then for software here this year. I was just I roomed with one of my friends that I met last year. Um, so, yeah, that's a really beneficial way. How to do that? Um, some room essentials, I guess, is the number one. If you want to hang anything on your walls, get command hooks. Uh, because that's really important. You button anywhere look at Mayer or anywhere. Um, also power strips, um, are really helpful and, like extension cords, because you're gonna want to plug in your computer over here. But your TV over here, your refrigerator, over here. So, um, they're just really helpful for when you wanna plug in things across room. Yeah.
