Interview with Ang
Tour GuideNicolette Kallimanis
I conducted an interview with one of my friends Ang who works in one of the QU labs.
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So I'm currently here with an engine, and I know you're currently working. I'm a biology major, and I got this job through a student employment. 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. 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. When I came here to visit, I was I was basically dead set on coming here. 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. 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. Teo, involved with plenty of clubs weren't involved. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Uh, just prepare yourself, understand what it takes to do and whatever. Like Major Field, you want to get into it, do your research.
