So I'm currently here with an engine, and I know you're currently working. Do you mind telling them what you do? Yeah. So I work here in microbiology. Lab is a lab assistant. I'm a biology major, and I got this job through a student employment. I was granted. We're study funding within my financial aid package, So I worked here about ten hours a week. I make all types of media and plates and tombs for the microbiology courses and disposed of all their lease. So what's your typical workload in your major? Um, I would say that it's anywhere from heavies to, like, moderately heavy. I don't think that there's any part of the semester that's like super slow or I don't have a substantial amount of work to do so. They're obviously times where it's less work, then others. But for the most part, I'm almost always busy and keeping busy and having to keep up with my courses. So why did you choose to come to you? I chose to come here because I originally wanted to be a physical therapist. So I came here for biology because it was close by my home. And when I came here to visit, I was I was basically dead set on coming here. I really liked the courses. I really The campus was gorgeous. It was just absolutely beautiful. And it was actually my first choice. So once they got the financial aid and everything else, I just I immediately committed. I didn't I didn't even wait for a few others people's. So what do you think about the student body here? I think the student body has a good distribution and she would say of different types of people. You have people highly involved in the Greek wife, like the frats and sororities. But you also have other people that are involved in other things on campus. There's a ton of clubs and things to get involved with. I mean, for the most part, I think the student body meshes well. It's a lot like the Tri state area You get like some international students all in all. Like I think it's a good mix. Yeah, there's plenty of sororities. Fraternities. Teo, involved with plenty of clubs weren't involved. Then there's two more student employment. So what do you think they should know before coming to you? Um, before coming here, I would keep in mind that, like the funds, I guess you would say are evenly distributed. It's not that it's not that the science is don't get as much funding as other parts of this campus, the Mount Carmel campus. But I know they just put millions of dollars into the school of business he had up in the chemistry labs. They're still using equipment from, like, the eighties because they wouldn't fund them Tio, get new computers and buy this off there. So I mean, it's not that the science is air lacking. It's just that just because you see a really beautiful like building and the really beautiful class or when you go on a tour kind of think cast that So do you. So they have better funding. Even I think, well, not only is it is North Haven newer, but I think that's like the majority of North Haven is more geared toward science is like you have a lot of the nursing students, a lot of the medical sonography students, so I just think that they put more money into that because that's heavier concentration of science students. So I think that's what I mean, Like, our classrooms here aren't lacking. But I mean, when you go on a tour, they're going to show you, you know, the brand new school of business. Like that's not how it is when you go to third floor Tater. So it's just what you see is I guess not directly what you get depending on what you're doing. Yeah, I agree. So any final advice, you have her upcoming pressure, I would just say Be prepared if you're one of those people that kind of flew through high school with no issues and, you know, got by really well and so did really Well, I depending on what you go into, I don't think that's how college goes. I was definitely one of those kids in high school, and when I came here is kind of shell shock, like, Oh, no. I have to, like, do through four hours outside of the classes I have and things like that. So, uh, just prepare yourself, understand what it takes to do and whatever. Like Major Field, you want to If you're wondering about our most famous campus destinations, I would say the most famous is probably the Bobcat statue. It is located down the road of the student housing, and it's right near the Bobcat Dan, which is also known as The Rat. When the men Taki team made it to the frozen for that was the destination. Now all the students came out to celebrate. Another campus attraction is a sleeping giant, and this is the mountain that is located right behind our main campus. When you hike the sleeping giant, especially in the fall, when all the trees air really colorful and they're really pretty, the view of our campus from the top is really beautiful. Lastly, another campus attraction is our complex courtyard, which I'm currently in right now. It's also across from our Larson courtyard, which is right over there. This is where a lot of students come to hang out to study, and there's plenty of events Hey, guys. You hear it? Taylor, we're at the hypnotist event. This is one of the three events that all seniors get with our senior experience there serving food. They're serving alcoholic drinks, and usually people go out Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night. And this is currently Thursday night. So this was one of the events that everyone's gonna come out with two. Usually the hypnotist is a really good turnout. They do a lot of funny things, and it's also held in Burt Kanis, Furqan Jim. And there's plenty events that are usually held in here by authorities, fraternities, clubs, athletics. There's always plenty of events that are going on in this gym in other area, so you'll never find yourself with nothing to do. Please join me in welcoming to the stage Salish way Your booth first human mission to Mars and afraid of flying are now no longer afraid of flying. But I didn't count to three you sitting up in your seats. Get ready to ride of your life. Two. Three Sit in your seats and close your eyes. Close your eyes.

Yeah. Yeah. What so quick? Always have expansion. There. Salad. You have a breakfast? Really good. So I'm currently in the athletic center. I'm in one of the studios right now. They're a studio, a studio be. There's a whole new sound system in both studio, so that's really nice to use currently on the dance team. There's plenty of practices in here. There's also a studio up on your kill, and they have their own fitness center there. An athletic center. There's a track upstairs. There's the gym downstairs. There's plenty of basketball courts to be used downstairs if you want to use them. There was also a variety of machines to be used. Exercise equipment. There's a weight room downstairs as well. Around the corner. There's also another gym called Berke Khan. And there's plenty of events that are hosted in there by sororities, fraternities, any clubs. And there's also plenty of other sports that host events. There wait. So for freshman, If you're wondering what housing options you have, you have the option of a double a quad or sweet. Now double is usually buildings. Dana and Irma there also buildings that are closer to the student center. So that's kind of a bonus. For the option of a quad. You have either building ledges or commons. If you have the option between one of them, I would choose Commons because Commons is closest to the student center. If you want one of the farthest buildings, then I would choose ledges. Now the option of a sweet either have Larsen or Mountain View Now. Mountain View, I will say, is much better than Larson. But it's the furthest building out of all freshmen housing. So if you like walking than I would choose Mountain View Now in these rooms you are given a desk, a dresser and a bed. But one of the most important things that you need to bring as a freshman is a fan. There is no A C in any of these housings. Just make sure you bring a fan So right now we're heading to the business building. If you were to ask me any building that has impacted my academic career, it would definitely be this building. I know it's called the business Building, but all the communication classes are on the left side. There is a lovely studio inside where you can learn howto work, all the TV production cameras. There's plenty of computers, Teo. Add it on, and that's where most of your work load comes from. There's a lot of filming. There's a lot of editing. And, of course, there's a lot of watching movies. There's a film analysis class where you watch home movies and analyse all the movies in class. There is plenty of film and production editing inside, and they even did new construction on both sides of the building, where there's plenty of work space and organization and study areas. If you feel like you have a lot over workload on you with editing and filming, don't worry. There's plenty of spaces where you could be editing. There are plenty of editing suites that you can use. There's something called a wedge room where it's a room down the hall. You can add it all your videos there, there's plenty of computers to go around. If not definitely check out one of the editing suites. It's a room where that you and a friend there's computer. You can ask for the mikes to be used, and there's all the software that you need on those computers. Trust me, half of my time was used in the editing suites because I didn't have any of the software, so if you don't want to buy the software, you could definitely use it on any of these computers So I want to first start off by giving you a tour of where I'm currently living as a senior. I live on Work Hill and your killer's. A separate campus from Made campus is actually a campus that is meant for juniors and seniors. But we also have a student center that is located in the middle. In the student center, there's a post office or the cafeteria. There's a fitness center upstairs. There's also some study rooms upstairs that you can use for East View In this building. There is five people for our group, and in each room each person has their own single. There's bathroom. There's a common room. There's a kitchen now. Each of these rooms within Crescent and East view on DH. All the freshman and sophomore housings. Each person gets their own dresser, their own desk and their own bed. Now the beds have plenty of space for sort underneath and each of the desktop plenty of room. I made the choice to bring my own unit that is on top of my desk so I can have more space for my books and whatever I need personally, my favorite place in East view. It is the lounge area. Then, luckily for my room, it's right around the corner. And there's plenty of tables were studying. Yeah, with your friends and get a good view from the windows of the campus. Hey, So if you're wondering about junior housing, you have a few options. You have the option between Crescent West View Townhouse and Whitney. Now Crescent West. You and townhouse are all buildings located on your kill campus. Whitney is an off campus housing for juniors. I know I was offered to it as a junior. Currently, I would love to live on Whitney, but as a senior, I'm not able to do that. Whitney was a great experience. You had a full common room kitchen, and the parking for Whitney is really nice. Where you park. It's right near your building now for crescent crescents, like a long stretch of housings for people. Anger to six you each have a double, and inside there are three double. So three doubles six people. You have a small common room and a kitchen. Now the same goes for West View and Townhouse. But Townhouse. Our building's, located behind Crescent and West View, is actually attached to Crescent. Now, if I had the option of living in one of these areas, I would choose Whitney Whitney was really great. So if you're wondering about living on Whitney without a car since it is off campus, don't worry. They're all shuttles that run there, and it's called the Red Bobcat. And if you ever need a shuttle you got to do is call them and they'll send the Hey, guys. So if you saw my video from before, I mentioned our campus destinations that you guys should go check out one of them was actually the sleeping giant mountain that is located right behind our main campus. What I thought would be a good ideas to actually show you a video I made with two of my friends from freshman year of us hiking about halfway up the giant. I know we didn't do the full hike all the way up the giant, but it's still really fun experience and a really nice fact to know when it's really nice out and you hide the giant. I would bring some of your books and homework with you because it's really nice area there to study. So enjoy this video. I'm a freshman here. Hi. So Sophie and Eva are here with me. We're on the shuttle. We just went to stop it. So one of the great things about Jack is that we have a free shuttle service. Yeah, you call them on demand. They also get you, too. All the campuses. So your kill and then, you know, all the parking
