Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So the library is well like it's one of those. Is it? Is the valley beyond When it comes to, you know, meeting student means, but they won't find you and they will find you Sorry at any opportunity they get, but I don't talk about that right now. The resource is anyway, so like, for example, I come here and take a couple online classes a term, and I can come here. My laptop's being funky, or I forgot it somewhere. I don't like whatever You khun, check out laptops from the university library. You can use any of their desktops pretty much as much as you want. Had sense, anything technology that you think you might need, you could probably check it out from the apartments. A library on DH. Other than that, it really is a really, really great space, too, You know, Study. There's sort of this like a window around windows that with big tables at it, it's a really good place. Actually, my cousin Zing goes here and my friend Sierra and I always do homework together on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. So I'm also supposed to talk about sort of work, life, balance in this video so that you're going, You're gonna get so for me, something that's really important is having a set schedule. Making sure there's time in my calendar actually do make a Google calendar because I'm annoying and I block out, you know, have a M to noon every Tuesday and Thursday, blocked out to do homework. Blocking that time out is huge for me and sort of my well being, Uh, not my well being, but my academic being, what else? I always so I haven't planned her, but it always ends up turning into basically just a glorified to do list. I just write down all the things I need to do, usually with the due date right by them. I literally just number um, but that's all kind of spurious is kind of what feels right in the moment. I say, I tell you, it wasn't until the end of my sophomore year before I really got into, like, a good study groove where I I cast. Maybe this speaks more to the lack of, like, diversity in class structure than it does my adjustments a student. Once you get used to, you know, you read the syllabus. You know, when What? Do you know how long it's going to take you to do certain stuff? You know what kind of stuff you're gonna put off Once you kind of begin to understand the way the courses were structured. It becomes much easier to organize your time around those things. You know, for example, a lot of courses having over our king like term paper. You find out really quickly that if you start working on the term paper gathering sources at least just making your annotations week to week three. We're on a ten week quarter schedule here, So there's ten weeks, of course. Normally the paper's due at the end of week ten. You know, if we two you're gathering sources and whatnot, you're in pretty good shape, and you then, you know, probably around midterms time, you're gonna have to turn in some draft or like an annotated bibliography that's gonna take work. So you're gonna need to know that you have to plan out time, and that's not something that don't necessarily write that down. It's not gonna mean anything to you cognitively, but that's something you kind of have to discover I'm in and the way that homework is in the way that classes restructured. We'll kind of be framed to you in your mind, based off of your experiences and how you process information.
