So I'm just kind of kind of go over a little bit of some frequently asked questions and some things that I wish that I knew prior to coming here. So the first thing that I'm going to talk about is the co op program minority. This is a super helpful resource because it often times I hear leads to so many job opportunities for students that go here on DH. Even if you are student of the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences and you're not required to do and come up. There are so many professors and there are so many people who encourage you to still do internships, and there are re sources and counselors you can go to to help you find those internships and to help aid with funding and everything that you need for those internships. So I think that that's a really big part of our tear is like learning from experience and going on to the field prior to other people and getting that experience. So that's just something that's like kind of a super hot topic for anybody. I really didn't know that much, even on Lee, from being like an hour away, I kind of wish I knew about how many kind of like, niche, cool things happened here, I think, because it's not like one of those conventionally large cities. Just because we have, like four colleges in the area and we have still, like a busing community of young people and older people living in Rochester, there are so many like different events and kind of like community things that happen, like for interest. It was just something that was, like, super cool. So I would see Don't be afraid of those kind of things. When you do, there's still things going on. I wish that I knew before coming here, it's the ratio because, I mean, it's not like I would have chosen not to come here, but it is kind of important to note that the ratio was, like, seventy percent male here and thirty percent female are something like around that, um and you can kind of feel it. I mean, when you're just kind of walking around, it's not the worst thing. It's just something to kind of be aware of before you come here. Do you know what I mean? Because there are so many guys on campus, but that's just the thing. I kind of didn't know what I kind of wish I knew something else. Question is about the deaf community here, authority. So it's kind of cool because the SL, like hard of hearing community is really prominent on campus. Like it's, it's a totally different experience and like something that you may not have been exposed to before. I think it's something that's super awesome. Um, it's really just kind of an awesome community. There's interpreters and every event and honestly, you realize, like how important it is to be inclusive and like be aware of people that have those kinds of things going on and making sure that you have like accessibility. I think it's something that arty suits are especially like Maurin Tune, too, because we have such a large institute, so that's just another kind of fun fact. Um, another thing that I guess people maybe would wonder about is having a declared major. That already has a school of individualized Eddie, which is kind of people that are looking to have, like, their own creation of a major on DH. You pretty much work with somebody one on one and create, like your major and the classes you want to take individually. Like I talked to Hannah and you guys met Hannah and she was like a visual culture like comic studies like that doesn't really exist here, but she made it exist. So I think that's something that's like super awesome. Especially if you don't really know exactly what you want to do or what fields you want to combine. Just knowing that that's an option is kind of something that's really cool. It's like all you can eat, and there's always something that's decent there. They have options for people that have allergies, people that are vegetarian, vegan, ahs. So that's something you're gonna have to eat a freshman year on an unlimited ice cream, which is very important. Like, honestly, when I go home, I missed the food here. They really just know how to feed us, right? So Tiger's got eat. That is completely up to you after you graduate after your first year here. You're definitely gonna figure something out if you come here. Um, so I think, other than the fact that I wish that I knew to bring my bike when I first came here, um, because there's a really big by community long boarding skateboarding. Um, I did bring my bike, like, a month after I got here, but it was, like, already kind of getting cold. He's really pretty good about putting everything out there and not like hiding too much like you don't get here. You did cover something like big that everyone's forgetting to talk to you about.
