Hey, guys, I'm Kristen and thank you for watching my walk. If you like what you saw, please. Like it's described my YouTube channel christen alliances far stage business, Nicole. And this is a video of what we can call my adventure around the train to my past. So let me tell you a bit more. Among their what you guys enjoy that you were a national university and we were also rant in twenty nineteen efficient, best national University. So give it up for that. He had twelve months away from New York City. We have approximately twenty thousand students or student population. It's really diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, religions and sexual orientation. Which is great because I s a Latino student. Did you know in the ground because I just moved here a year ago? I have so much support from the school and there's so many organizations that help me. And he makes you feel at home, in fact, that everybody respect your traditions, your axe and your skin collar like everybody's really friendly. We were also name is a top twenty five lgbt Q lost friendly campuses. So give it up for that too. And last, let me talk of our community. As I already said, I'm a sister of Beta Phi Alpha. You were one of the five national sororities here on campus. We also have the Interfraternity Council has seven fraternities. We have the local council with six local organizations from the here, among where four sororities and fraternities. This means that you're not going to find this organizations in any other campus. We have the independent counsel that has four gender inclusive or musical organizations. We have the mph. See, that has seven African American organizations. And the United Greek coalition has twelve Latino on multi cultural organizations. It's great that we have such a broad, great community because of you guys know well. You are probably aware that in a lot of campuses are shutting down and we try tio increased Greek unity, and we're all great together, no matter the letters. And it's not about parties, is just about helping people in having a connection with everybody. I also want to talk about how great is that Ice, a commuter at the same college experience, acidic someone that lives on campus. It's since Mark wears a commuter campus. They really worry about all of our students having the same experience, so they have a lot of events, are really accessible with ours and everything. They have events everyday and throughout the week and there's so many clubs. Get Teo. It's really great. I love it. And as I said, you get the whole experience I want because I was really worried that I wasn't gonna be able to enjoy this four years of college. But I'm actually enjoying it and join us already hard, A lot of collapse. So, yeah, but let's get to the next video. I just did my first baby dressed herself on It is way are what?

Sort of a freedom of just letting people are in each other and be real people inside your pregnancy has been amazing. That that's carried in a performance is that people are still sort of like growing that that we're not in a product, that we're still in process. It's incredible, baby. Sometimes they make you wait. My folks struck out. I want this kid for you, Dr. All it takes What right? Me like this Stop. Hey, guys. So this sex video is just me talking about how possible it is for people to have jobs outside of school while you're in school, Montclair. And how many options there are on campus for youto have on campus jobs. So I know it's like a spread rumor that it is very difficult to have a job but also to go to school. But what Claire makes up really easy, and it's a really great time management. So I decided to share with you some of the stuff that my friends and people that I know do outside of school as well, because there is a lot of time toe have a job, but I think that's really important. So I just want to share a little bit of that with two guys. Remind Zack Holograph Go Democracy University, and my job is I work part time at Abercrombie and Fitch.

Look how cute we are. We're back. She always says that and she's in back, like, three times the liver. Avery does gonna eat it way, Theo. First day of classes were walking Thio, Our second cost giving ass brownies for her birthday begin way. How did you do that? I broke some skulls. You guys look at this. So we got our food hall. You're messy at all. We just got our food hall and delivered over snacks to our room. We got chicken. Little Sue tried Rahman, we're officially back. Hey, guys, I'm Kristen. I am a YouTuber, and I am a student at Montclair State University. I am a sophomore in the musical theater program, and I'm gonna take you around to look at Montclair. Is different dining options today to see if the options we have because I know that was a huge deciding factor for me in my college audition process because I liked you. So I'm gonna take you around, and we're gonna look at some of those options. All right, guys, you have two large dining halls on campus, and I'm gonna show you where both those air located. They basically just have a different variety of foods every day, depending on what you want. They have a vegan section. They have regular section. They have, like, burgers, hot dogs and seafood, pasta, pizza stuff like a desert something too. So I'm gonna bring you around to both of those. Right now, we're starting at Sam's place. It is connected to a height. Machuca Heights is one of the doorman options of the heights of denial in the yoga. And this is my Dugas dining hall. It also has a really great snack areas where you can buy. Discounted. Actually, not so distressing about living in a chugga is there is a little place called Bistro, where you can go after hours after everything is closed and they offer different types of foods, like burgers and chicken and pancakes, like a random stuff like that. And that's really good. A lot of us went there a lot once everything is closed, your 100 at like one I am. I'm walking up on Glancing hall right now, which is just a regular dorm off center. But inside of this building, have a food court. This is one of the locations where you're going to find a little bit more familiarity. This also doubles as a little convenient story. Coming here and get a lot of snacks like this comes with our flex dollars fill. Every semester you get as much as I come in here and get little snacks like this a lot before dance of person. We have a chili's, which we use. Actually, all the time was also a Dunkin Donuts location in here as well. All right, so I'm walking into a student center where we have lots of different food options because It's basically the center of campus because another. So this portion of our campus way California way have a burger place here. And then we have Panda Express over here, which is my personal favorite, and I understand why. Stop doing something right now. Continue walking you guys to the student center. There's a lot of eating options in here, so this is the upstairs portion and then downstairs there is other options down here. Another kind of convenience software. You could get snacks, bucks, dollars. This is sort of a side note, but there are different many missions all over campus that you can use with your flex dollars. I love being anybody's fucks. Dollars never have actual money on me because I'm a broke college students, so being able to ride bikes dollars, all these places is super helpful. So this is a BP, which is our favorite place as musical theater majors to eat because it's right across from basically where we live, even breathe all day long. This has a lot of healthier options, such as like salads, Suze sandwiches, things like that. I come here and get smoothies a lot before and after class just because it's very, very convenient anyways. So basically, this building has been under construction since I've been here, which isn't even a year and 1/2. But there have been rumors that they're gonna be some really cool restaurants in here. I would share the rumors, but I don't want them not to be true. And then I get in a lot of trouble. So I'm not gonna share, but good stuff. We're obviously would be infamous. Freeman Andi Freeman Hall is another dreaming option for students on the other side of campus that is connected to our other dining hall, which is also called Freeman. Freeman is very cool because Freeman uses kiosks for all of the orders and you just go up. You look at the kiosk, and then from there you order and then your buzzer will buzz and you can go get your guys. This is business building and inside business. Berger is a little coffee joint. A lot of people think that is only for business people, and that's not true. I'm going there a lot and get coffee and hot chocolate when I am getting sick of Duncan because that is the only other copy option here, so it's kind of hidden business building. But it is a really good option for coffee drinkers and people that you aren't fans of Dunkin because I love what they have down there become near the end of our video here. This little piece right here is dying, which is open 24 7 which is fantastic is another place you can just go in the middle of the night. Also have these awesome food trucks are a tear. This one I know is open for breakfast Mondays through Fridays and that one's open just kind of on select days, one necessary. They're both Republican, all of youse, a really great opportunity dining in the right in the middle. All right, guys, As you can see, there is a lot of dining options on this campus on it was all really great food. We're very lucky to have a great food service here at the school, so I really hope you like what you're seeing. I really hope you look more into Claire's check out more than videos we have on this channel, and I hope to be seeing you soon.
