And it's just like, so wonderful in this environment was cultivated Lee, for this lovely people on like to go up hospital, many smooth size of school because I know that outside of my bubble there are so many people just like words like out there never here. So kind of like make your bubble in order to live. Make your course good point. Hi. I'm happy. Welcome to my door. Come on. All right, here we have the kid. Jan. We have lots of cabinets, so that's always good. Lots of fun. Storage. Yeah. Seeing my grave. Big fridge, stove oven. That's pretty cool. And some dishes was, uh, going to be a kitchen that we have our common area over here. We have a little table. You have a little main fridge over there and lamp. So four people live in this room by choose roommates live over here. That's Camilla. Thought eso these use. This used to be a one bedroom apartment, but they converted it into a four person sweet. So because there's no door here, my suitemates put there just like this. A little current. Give them some privacy, make sense their closets Right over here. We got here too. A closet over here, people to bathroom stuff and clean there. And here is our chore chart. See who's cleaning. Keep us cleaning. Oh, and also, we love to paint when you have a lot of artworks. There's an art over here and some over here, too. And then we have the bathroom bathroom shower sink. Here, here, here on the back of the store. And then we have support story there and Karen down here. And this is my room. My room, mate. Hayley lives on this side and I live on this side. You can tell he's clean freak. Um, yeah, I'm really just the posters. And I really like rock music. So I have a lot of rock man posters. I think lights is a super big essential tohave because, like in this room, we don't have any overhead lighting. So I have we have over here on my roommate has a lamp that's really important, especially at night. Also, something important I feel like is one of the usual Kanai shooter. And I'm asked because if you remain to staying up on the computer lately, this is really happening. My desk over here kind of give all my belongings, my books, painting stuff here, stuff make up everything. I need more artwork over here and then my beautiful closet. It's so big s o holy night. Sure, this cause it ourselves in the left, all ours. Ryan is on the right. We actually kind of rainbow colored it, which is pretty cool in the house cleaning stuff up there in the sides and shoes. My bike held it and also under my bed. I have a lot of storage to hear. I have, like blankets and bags, sheets and towels my guitar and then have suitcases for I go home. Also over here I have my dresser that they gave me a picture that my boyfriend gave me. Very cute. And in here I have medicine and bags and technology and chargers and stuff like that that steps all really important. A stool for a friend to see it. It is an essential and say so I go and why you. This dorm is located writing Union Square's called Carlisle Court. It's a really great location because units, where is awesome and the subway's right there. But I'm lucky because I don't have a view of Union Square, which would be really loud. I instead have a view of our courtyard, which is really nice to the other two buildings to the left and writer the other two towers of this dorm. And yeah, I think again, when the most important things is my lamp, because there's no overhead lighting in here, so it's super super important. Then I have my laundry bag. It's awesome because it's also a backpack, so it's really easy for me to carry it out. Here's what I have to do my laundry. And I think the most important thing about storming here is just making your own space and decorate how you want to. I really like that we have our paintings because that's really thought. I like seeing my drawings in the morning stuff. I just I'm going. It's good to see pictures of your friends and stuff, too. It's pretty much my door. hi guys and the soft board and way drinking, urban design and architecture studies, and I'm here to give you some final advice about applying to college. I think the most important thing is to stay confident in yourself that you're special and amazing, and colleges will realize that about you. It's also not the end of the world. If they don't back, whatever happens is meant to happen. And that is the place you're gonna find yourself. And at every campus and every university, there's always two three clubs and dorm events and lots of places where you can find your people in your community. And I'm sure that you absolutely will find that. So another advice definitely joined a lot of clubs. That is how I know a lot of people and have friends. So definitely do that. And also another good advice. My beats are early decision to school of You're really sure you want to go there because that does your chances of getting in that also, make sure you get a lot of reference letters from your teachers coaches. Anybody like that in your life knows how awesome you are, and they could definitely tell your also having trouble with standardized has s a t u R E C team. I definitely suggests going to group tutoring class, getting private tutoring. That really helped me my score. Also, make sure you pull your skills on there. You might be doing some activities that don't seem like you know about it, but they really do want to know how. Well, definitely put it down there and you're gonna do amazing. Don't stress. Good luck. Hey, guys. So I wanted to give you a quick tour of my dorm so that you can see what it's like in here. Um, everyone gets their own desk, their own bed and their own set of drawers. Eso you have enough room for all your clothes? Everything. There's even a closet. The nice thing about palladium is that they're actually walk in closets, so it's a pretty big space you can see. And there's enough side one for your roommate, One for you. Um, but yeah. So here's my bed. Put up some pictures because, you know, college on DH, then? Yeah. You have your desk for homework or books or make up. Mostly, um and yeah. So are dormant. Room is pretty small, but that's because in play diem and sweet style so we have a common room as well. Uh, this is our common room right here. We put up some light so that everyone can see I'll show you the view. We don't actually have a street view, but palladium has a courtyard because there's a dining hall down in the middle. So this is what you see if you look out, um you can kind of see into other people's rooms, so we try not to do that that much in each sweet. They also have a kitchen, which has been super helpful this year. A lot of sophomores that I know actually don't have meal plans any more because they've decided that they just want to cook for the whole year, which is super great for them. Uh, here's a quick shot of our bathroom, so you can see, uh, you had a shower toilet sink. We put up these cool shelves because there's a lot more space this way on one of our mirrors even opens up like a little compartment, so it's pretty cool. Um, and yeah, that's our suite. Hi, guys, it's Gabby. I'm here to help you out with a little college application Advice. If you are applying to you, I think the most important thing about applying to colleges is to just be yourself because no one else is like you. And colleges don't just want to read application after application of the same exact person who did really well in school but didn't do anything outside of school. So make sure you're doing a lot of extracurriculars and maybe some community service that's really good as well on DH definitely share stories that are special to yourself and things that you've experienced that no one else can write about. Also, when you're applying to and why you they're going to ask you why you want to come here. So I really suggest you do a lot of research on this school before you do so because you can research what kind of students already go here and the qualities in them that they think is important and that will help them better see if you fit here and that's the stuff that they want to see. Something I wish I knew while I was applying GNU is that it's not the end of the world if you don't get in and you don't have to be perfect, No one is perfect. And they just want you to be interesting and cool and see what you're passionate about. So just be yourself. That's the best thing. So I early decisions and why you and I think that may have had a difference getting accepted because you are more likely to get accepted if you do early decision. So if you're really sure that you want to come ten by you, that you should early decision. Hey, guys. So right now I'm gonna show you what the subway looks like, Right near Washington Square Park. It's called West fourth. We're going to go put some money on my stuff. The subway is definitely my main form of transportation besides walking. If you ever want to go uptown, Brooklyn or anywhere, really take. Hey, guys. So this is my roommate, Christian on DH. He's going to help me answer some questions for you about what it's like to be here with you. Uh, Christian, You want to tell them what your major is and where you're from? So Christian has an interesting experience. And I where he actually got here in a different course that he wanted to. You want to tell them I got in for premed. But I'm not doing that anymore because I hate math inside. Try switching toe mcc, which is media, culture and communications. Yeah, it's a really cool program. My minder is actually in it because I'm learning about arts business. So I got to take business classes at the Stern school, and I get to take them in an artsy way. So I learned how to use it within my industry too. On a Christian. What is your favorite and your least favorite thing about you? Oh, definitely. How expensive is my least favorite life? That's true. Yeah, yeah, Favorite they give us like a lot of life, not like attention, but they look like they kind of cater to our needs, like letting us choose our classes. And, Yeah, that's tough, Definitely. And what do you think? What's your favorite thing to do in New York? Or for everything that you've done so far. I like staying at home with my friends. Yeah, that's true. Honestly, New York is amazing, and you can go out and find something fun every single day. Uh, but if you want to just hang out and chill with your friends at home, we do that all the time. And I can definitely say that it's worth it if you just want to hang out with people that you love. Um yeah, All right. Hey, guys. So right now we're gonna go take a tour of Lipton Dining Hall, which is the dining hall directly in my building. Next Washington Square Park. Let's go. A little back area back here. Yeah, Little ice cream section, ice cream. This is it. What a sweet fruit stand. I'm here with some real life and what I used to do a little something to say about you. It's good, actually. Good. Yeah, I was a little bit. There's so many options. But if you want to get a burger, just be ready to wait in line for like thirty. But you can also order things on your phones. What? What is that? Yeah. Just like you like, I think. Ready by the time you want. Do you have any opinions? Yes, I think down scene has been my source of life for every breakfast. Third North's breakfast is not good. Everything else besides brunch is not gonna play him. Yeah. What is palladium Brunch. Have you ever been to a place? You've never been to palladium? Why let me talk about so late? Brunch is one meal, so you go in there. I think it's eleven to three on Sundays, and it's literally unlimited like it's there's so much food, there's deserts. There's like cheese. There's a papaya juice found naked. And then there's like, There's steak and chicken and like everything you could ask for brunch on. And it's like, All here, right? It's all here. It's already all around here in the place. It's wonderful. Yeah, amazing. Thank you so much.
