Siri's If you have any questions or anything you want to see, please leave those down below. So the first thing I wanted to talk about is male plans because I had a few people asking about, like, the best things to eat in college and like, ah, specifically for NC state. So you just want to always have that with you because it's pretty important because you do need it to get into certain rooms and thing. You just want to kind of judge by how much you think you eat in a week. You could go to the dining hall as many times as you want, and we have. I had as many of those I wanted for my everyday plain that I had freshman year. Whenever you're living on main campus and it's your first year and you're living in a dorm, I think that that everyday plan is a good one for you. So if someone asked me specifically what I thought, the best places to eat on campus, where I definitely frequent Starbucks and Chick fil A the most, I do really like one earth. Over time, I'll get Jason's Deli whenever I just want a simple sandwich or something. If you want to add your debit card and then you just go and you can order anything from any of the stores or like any of the restaurants on campus, and then they'll get it ready for you. So if you like on your way to class, you want tapingo. Yeah, tapingo you guys need So now I wanted to talk a little bit about housing. So at N. C State, you have to live on campus your first year as a freshman, you have to live on campus. It's right on the center of main campus, and I would recommend living in one of the tri towers. So that's kind of like held a sweet style where then we have apartments, but you have to be an upperclassman to live in the apartment center on campus, which a lot of people live in the off campus apartments, which are still on campus. I live in Wolf, Bridget's on Centennial, where the textile and engineering classes are because it's the on campus apartment complex, and I use my financial aid to pay for it, and I know that I could get it to live in an off campus apartment complex, but it would be a little more complicated, so I just prefer living on campus so that I'm paying for everything with my financial aid in one place. So whenever it comes to applying for your dorm, but you might want to pick living with somebody that you already know, or you might want to try to find somebody that you can room with, or you might want to go with just a complete random. I found her on Facebook, and then whenever we applied for living, we applied to have each other, and then we ranked three of our favorite like dorms that we wanted to live in. Once you start doing things like applying for housing, trying to get parking passes, figuring out your schedule, it gets really, really competitive at least inside say, I mean, it probably is like this at any school, but since we're so big, it is so competitive, and it's so hard to get what you want, like you have to be on top of it. It's like whenever I was reapplying for my apartment this year, I had a friend that I wanted to live with me. So your time slot is given to you based on how many credit hours you have so right whenever your time slot opens for things like enrolling for classes, getting parking, like I said or applying for housing, you want to do it that day that minute, because otherwise things will fill up. So like I said, I am in the apartment that I wanted to be in this year. So as a freshman parking on campus were only allowed tohave parking in the residential storage lot, which is on Centennial campus. Thank God I'm not wait listed because last year I was so paranoid that I was gonna end up without my car and be like, stranded on campus, which, as a freshman, it's not a big deal to not have your car because like you need that times like be in the college constantly and like you have all your meal plans. I just want to touch on how competitive and rolling for classes is because it just goes along with how competitive everything else could be. I'm like, I'm not living with the girl that I wanted to live with, But it's only a short period of time. So another thing that I wanted to talk about is buzzing at N. C. State. Anybody that wants to get on the bus can get on the bus. Basically, you can go on the app and type and where you want to go, and it'll tell you what buses to take where. You can type in where you want to go, and it will tell you which buses would be easiest to take. You might have to present your idea or something, but are just just get on it and go Oh, and that goes into my friend Cayla on Instagram was asking if is the campus really as bad as it seems? With all the walking? Because N. C. State is huge, and I will say I was back there like last week, and hiking across that campus was exhausting to me, like I forgot how much walking I have to do at school. Yeah, but you don't want to, like, leave your stuff in the laundry down there and those residents holds because people might take it. I also just wanted to touch on internships and study abroad. These air really good opportunities that I felt needed because these are really good opportunities. So you really don't want to go in there and, like, waste their time by just saying like Hi, I'm a freshman and I just want to know about internships like some of our classes may just do that, and I absolutely hated it. If you want to you and then you can also do an internship, prepare whatever, but I think it's really helpful for your career to take those experiences while you're still in college and are expected to have much experience. So the other thing that I want to talk about it study abroad, which I will be talking about more on my channel because I hope to study abroad myself this coming spring. I just want you guys to keep an open mind about it and to research about it whenever you're going into college, because it's another really great opportunity that you might not get again. They have like a presentation about it that you could go to, so you might want to do that as well. I just want you guys to keep that in your mind and take advantage of that opportunity because it's a really great opportunity. If you guys have any other questions or concerns or anything that you want to see from me during this back to school season, please leave that down below.
