Um, and this is one of those buildings that you might not be in unless you're in journalism, major communications or theater. So there's I mean, there's some different things that are held in there, but if you want to take, like, photography or something like that, any digital media arts kind of classes, those are gonna be in here. So if you wanted to take that as an elective or something, this would be the building for you. So this is when you walk inside. There's these, um this whole leg section is the theatre section. So, uh, you know, people meet here and stuff, and, uh, this is kind of like the Theatre Hall of fame down here. So all the pictures from past productions and stuff like that, if you're a theater major, you'll be in here a lot. So this is our green room.

And then this It's the studio abs and, well, you get to be on the show. Let's go. Here we go at the desk and there's different teleprompters. The lighting is not amazing here right now, but there's teleprompters where the anchors are going to read Photography class meets here to, like, do different projects and stuff. And this building is so cool and you think there's a little bit more this knowledge to climb That, um, there is This is the animation studio, and, um, like Photoshopped or anything like that, it's gonna be in here. People meet computer lobbyist to do that stuff, and I get it open. I actually work in this building to you.

Yeah, I'm just during a package hanging out. She just doing beauty. You love her so much. This is Shawnee Hall, the oldest building on campus. It was built in nineteen, fifteen. And now any student that comes here no matter what Major, will have a classic, the biggest class size that Toby was going to be around sixty people, and that's only usually your freshman year. What? Kill. So, like I said earlier, Shawnee Hollis, one of the oldest buildings on campus, but it's also one of the most important buildings is located in the middle of the over. No matter what made you are. Like I said, you're gonna have a class in here because we have general education classes in here. Every student takes, like, all cast Mitt or New Testament or upset, which is mixing history and literature. So your education, you're gonna have a lot here. These cultures, these broken boards are made by early education Majors Elementary, and they have all right down here. The division chair of education is housing here as well as other faculty members in crime. Oh, things like that. Basically, there's theater here because this thing like disguises it. But there's a hero in there that, um, theater department. They performed there. And the shows are awesome. So if you ever get a chance to come, wash one thousand. But the student faculty ratio at O. B U is fifteen to one and class size gonna be anywhere from fifteen twenty five average. Sixty. Like in that class. I just showed you and the professor's office hours are very open and they never have, like, teach a class there. Oh, they're always there. They're always president. Most of the dresses that you have terminal degree, Zizzo. What would you say Are some dormer essentials. Some doorman essentials? Well, I would definitely have a purifier. Something I didn't think I need. Look, they have water fountains, but like something you don't leave your room. That's right. Keep it one hand, baby. Don't about days, Mississippi. Do you think that you shouldn't have a fridge or shoot me like you should probably text, choose who's gonna be a roommate? Yeah. Figured out. Is that what you did? I did, actually, cause my roommate had a fridge from her brother. I went to college, and so I just texted her, and she said, Hey, I'll bring the French and we just share that. Okay? I do know two girls, both brother on fridge, and they have plenty of space in the room, so Okay, cool. Did you do public? I did. Potluck. What is it? Potluck is where you pick a random roommate and, well, school picks for for you or Yes, there's next year. My door's I don't know you, by the way. It's girls dorms and storms, which is really nice because you can kind of like, you know, that's actually really accurate because in the showers and getting turned down the hallway. So it's really, really nice. My roommate is from Lone Grove, and I'm actually for Oklahoma City. So I met her on enrollment day and just text her a little bit and okay, back to the room Essentials. What else do you think you would add? I would add a few love. Well, like a certain, like if you love drinking tea. Bring. How are the Oilers? Yeah. Or if you love coffee, bring a coffee pot. Because sometimes you don't work here. She's good. Oh, yeah. I bring a lance and a near her because there's only one mirror in the room. So, girls, you might need more than one for two people. Yeah, so I have it's huge. Hello. Yeah, maybe a printer. Oh, that looks super essential. Tio, This is the best thing I've ever bought in my life. It's a movable one. It's like Ben. So, like, if I wanted to work to get, I got a target and it wraps around. But I think I have a mitt stables, too. And so they called it like the cats, actually. So great. Now I've never even seen it. So many It's so nice. And I have a lot of clubs. Maybe bring, like, two albums. Like I have an extension cord plugged into Mexico. There's a lot to it's got you got You said. Okay. Well, thank you so much. Hey, guys, I'm in the convenience store. So this is where you get a lot of, like, on the go kind of snacks. And then with the meal plan, there's actually a couple different options with what you could have for one. Sure, dinner you can trade in or breakfast. You can trade in one of your meals wipes every day for spicing grill. Or you can eat at clay. I love you. So definitely here. Except on, you know, weekends are some different things with that. But depending on what's she like to eat, you do that. And then we also have a Starbucks here. Go on and show you on. And then they also have, like, a smoothie station as well. So right here. Hey, it could be like in order. Starbucks? Yeah. Over you. No. Has students thing about coming here. Why should my mission? Because it's a great place. There's great to meet. The professors are awesome educations. Great. You're better than most places. It's a big family. What you think? They make a better That's right. That's why you should come here. Okay, Gavin, when you introduce yourself in your major and your classification here, Toby, I'm Gavin Elster and I Everybody give Major and have a sophomore. But do you I want to do with you. I actually want to be a missionary doctor. So being at O. B U, I can study ministry and I can also learn from top of the Nazi scientist here, right? But the professor's here are actually from other countries. We get that. Yeah, so it's really cool because we get diversity here, but also a different knowledge. So we have a lot of people from Cameroon. We have a lot India, and I think there's even one from South Africa. And what they do is they teach from their world view how they taught it. And it's much different how I was taught in high school. And it's much easier to pull. The teachers are very intentional, and they know you by name. So if you're walking on campus, they will literally hunt you down just to shake your hand. But not good morning. I'm not only that, but they invited to their house to eat dinner with So my favorite thing about over you is the spiritual impact that they do here. Being in science, you would think that science and you mentioned are definitely polar opposite. But they are. It's crazy because the professors here know what they're talking about. And they put Bible scriptures and Bible versus and give us clarity on how we should look into the future also. So it's pretty amazing just for me to get clarity on subjects like, you know, the creation of the world or even evolution. What advice would you give to high schoolers thinking about going t O bu specifically, um, find a good group here at ofyou. Like anybody you see, walking on the sidewalk is a great person and get to know everybody and find your group and find your people. Even though I'm a science major and I hang out with so many signs, major friends, I have so many other friends that want different major communications or, like social sciences. And it's really cool because we can, like, put all of our knowledge on a table. And then, just, like, talk about anything made. Yeah, coming through, Sextus. Super fun. But yeah, if you find a group of people, I mean, you're going to find people like you, that helps you. The transition from high school college a lot easier. And like I found the best friends I've ever had
