Buddy. You're a boy. Make a big nice pane in the street big. You got me in your place. Singing. Buddy. You're a young man, my charming industry. You got it. A big displace waving you. Yeah. So here I am sitting in the performing arts center, so as a theater student, ninety percent of my classes have been in this building. There's performance spaces. That kind of double is classrooms, but they're also used his rehearsal spaces if you're working on the show. So if you haven't gathered already, Sarah Lawrence is very strange. If you're like me, that means you're a theater third, and basically what that means is that everyone else on campus you only have to take three classes. But if you're a theater third or music third or something else, that's a third. It means you actually take five. It's a little confusing, but that means that you take more classes than anybody else. But it means that you won't necessarily have to do conference work for those classes. It's a little confusing, but it takes a lot more sense. The more you do it, the more used to it. You get outside, we're also getting a stone in the theater put it, and that I'll be kind of Really? Teo. Good. It's weird to video yourself. Go speak well. He's just getting started. Sit So wasting time with a masterpiece to waste on when the masterpiece you should be Roma Me? You should be rolling on me. This is the only annoying thing about eating a face is Bates Hill. It's super steep, but this is how we don't get in the freshman fifteen, because every time you meet, you have to walk up a batch of and really steep help. So here in the pub. This is where you could order a lot of, like, greasy and all that kind of stuff open until about two a. M. So you could get like, a midnight craving for chicken tenders. This is where you want to come, but they also have someone options, and you could make your own sandwich solid, so it's got a lot of Bob. Well, the idea with the meal plan is that depending on the plane that you have, you get one, two or three meals a day, so it's a little weird. So you swipe your card whenever you're going somewhere. So you saif it when you go on debate. So you swipe it when you're about to buy food from the pub. But each meals of breakfast is something like four dollars lunch. I think it's sex in the dinner is eight, so if you're at the pub and you wanna buy a facade, the course on it's like two fifty years and things so you cannot exceed the amount of money that that meal was worth. If that makes sense, Bates told saying. You just swipe to go in whatever you want. The pub is a little more complicated. And then there's also other places that you don't kill us theirs. A cafe in the library, there's a place in hind bowl, so you got a couple places if you want to get some snacks or if you want Hey, guy. So this is going to be a war in green tour, You kind of solid, but downstairs and Tony and I are going to help give tours of the bathrooms and her dorm room, So once you come into here, this is one of their bigger bathrooms on the second floor. The bathroom. I am open here is this iconic, iconic of cold blue current because what is life without okay? And then going down the hallway is Antonia's round. Here is the door. Hey, welcome to my room. This is more green B five. It's a normal little single. Some of my favorite parts of this room are this wall that I've gotten to decorate. I put plants and books there, and I love this little window that my cash and there's eating right now really likes to look at. So I have a little desk. This is one of the smaller singles, but I've kind of made the space work. Does it Will? Where is the little closets where most of my stuff? I have some extra storage bins down there and I, like keep my laundry hamper and then under the bed. I have some other storage bins that my cat likes just so just for like, winter clothes or sheets and stuff. But I definitely recommend trying tow live as minimally as possible and not bring a bunch of stuff because it makes it a lot harder. Unlike me, I'm like Reagan, who has a lot. Nobody knows about my Crock pot. Oh, well be I love your flag thinks that it was actually a Christmas present from a classmate last year. Being bisexual, this campus is actually really cool. There is a bisexuality, visibility dinner last year where we all got together and discussed what it was like to be bisexual on this campus, in the community and then in the country and what kind of complications that caused. But then also how we could support each other, which is really amazing. It's really it's really nice to be in the LGBT Q A plus community on this campus, because it's really it's a really strong net community. People are really supportive, and they're more gays than that. Gays. So it's it's actually kind of good for dating. Hey, guys, welcome, Teo. Sarah Lawrence College. My name is Reagan Burroughs and I will be your tour guide today a little bit about me. I am a sophomore here, originally from Scottsdale, Arizona. I'm studying mainly theatre and economics, but I also branch off into, uh, politics in psychology as well. You'll see that Sarah Lawrence allows you to do that, which is really, really cool. I understand that on the Sarah Lawrence College chapter of campus Real, there are already some other tour guides. So I'm going to make sure that I specifically on ly shou you guys things that you haven't seen. Things that haven't really been mentioned yet, for example, specifically talk about the way that Sarah Lawrence works here and the academics and how those play out talk a little bit about the community that it provides different students. I think we have to offer here the resource is and show you as much as I possibly can. So it is. It's a little bit chilly right now, so snuggle up. Grab your jacket and your Beanie or whatever you need and come with me through this When it comes to actual classrooms at Sarah Lawrence, you never really know what you're going to get. I've had classes in lecture halls. I've had classes in what looked like big movie theaters. I've had classes and actual little classroom looking things. I've had classes on stages and in black box theaters. Honestly, you're going to go have anything anywhere. Traditionally, seminars are between twelve to fifteen people, and then lectures are Captain around sixty. So if you're looking for small class sizes, you're definitely going to get that at Sarah Lawrence. It's great. In my opinion, you get to have a really good relationship with your professor, and you feel like they really get to know you over the course of the semester or the year that your in their class. So now I'm going to show you some of the venues on campus and places where I've had So you guys excited to go see a movie? Heck, yeah. Or going to see Bohemian Rhapsody gonna be great. You're gonna get a big popcorn. You're one of those people who eats all of the pop corn before the movie even begins. Because that's how I try not to. I'm really bad that I've really tried a portion it out. Well, so here, here we're at the Cross County E. This's normally where kids come there's, like forever twenty one gunshot. Poli poli is here. Yeah. So basically, if you need to come shopping, this wasn't it's within walking distance. Or if you drive, it's like a five minute drive from campus walking, especially from Hill house. Yes, if you live in her house. Honestly, you can. Really. Plus, you can walk to stop and shop in, like, ten minutes, which is nice if you just need something small. So we're ready to go see this movie, eh? Coke with. That's enough. No. All my life, You here like this. No. You're out in the city. So here we are. Doubly Lawrence with my friend. Well have. Well, it's going to take us on a tour of his rooms. All right. This is because me and my girlfriend got lucky enough to live together. So this is basically just living room where we have the couch, where I put all my laundry that I don't feel like sorting. And then we have a place that I lived. My computer. We have better in the bathroom and the bedroom where we just sleep. Yeah. What? I'm glad to see you have no fire hazards. No, no, no. You got it all, but yeah. So that's what a room. And don't worry. That's like that's not so well has lived in where I've lived in Hill. I lived when I lived in Andrew's east when I lived in McCracken and I looking deadly, Lawrence. On which of those we liked the best, This one next. This one's the best. Did you live in hell of a freshman? Yeah. Yeah, that's why I left. Were you in a double R? I was in a triple, but one of our triple people never lived there, so it was a triple with two people. Nice. Okay. This is Lauren and Sarah, and this is their double in McCracken. Okay, I'm Lauren. I'm studying visual arts, and here is my decorations Street. All right, I'm Sarah. I studied feeder and political science, and these are some of my goals that I made for myself at the beginning of the semester. So where have you guys lived on? So my first year I lived in Hill house, I wouldn't in a double. And then my second year, he lived on the first floor of a year's east and I lived in Hill House for the first year and sophomore and once in a triple second. Of where has been your favorite place? Definitely my crack it. I enjoyed living in Andrew's ease because it was so close to everything, and it was like a nice little sweet. But my door, my dorm was right by the front door and, like, just all the wind would come in. And it was those Clinton Sounds awful, I know, but I would have to seem a cracking, too Is nice having single but the location of packing. It's just amazing. Just want like you always have, like two minutes away, green the rooms to relay It is huge. My mind has been blown here, not even today. Look for Green, my humble abode. This is a bar. She cracked This staircase leads upstairs to where there are various bedrooms. Singles, doubles I'll show you the kitchen. So this is it. A little right now, it's usually like that. So no angry. We have two fridges. One is a communal fridge and one is a personal fridge because there's thirteen people living here, So we need a lot of space. This is where we cook communal meals for every like five dates a week together. And it's really fun. Okay, so now we're going into our common room where we spend most of our time. We just reorganized. It's really pretty. We have our lives. This is the common area where we spend the majority of our time here. Together we have tapestries. A little warning Green sign Reagan, who's often here. Antonia wanted to film. I'm letting Antonio film that's. What can you tell me? Do you have to apply to live in foreign? Greener is just like any other door, mama. Thrones. It's actually different because we are a coop. So when spring rolls around and everyone starts doing the lottery, you don't have to do that. Which is awesome. Process consists of short answer application that ass like why you want to live in Warren Green? Like why of sustainability Important too. You? What kind of projects would you like to do living at war in green, and then you turn that in. And you? The second part is an interview with one of the senior House members and some people from Ra's life where they like, I ask you in person and you elaborate on what you said in the written and Ariel, it's super easy. Then you get you find out before the lottery if you're in or not perfect. So can you tell me what are some of the sustainability projects that you guys were doing this year? So this year we're planning on doing a super party to be sponsored by the school, and then I'll be open to the whole school. Or so everyone brings a bowl and we eat soup together. Oh, but in the past has been different fundraisers for we did a party that all the proceeds went to Planned parenthood. And it's kind of anything you want to do. Oh, great. Okay, so, um, one last question Is there anything you would want to tell Teo upcoming first years or their parents about living in a sustainability code? I think it's a really good living space because you're never alone and you always have like good people around you, and it's a really supportive community. So if you're nervous about your first year of college and not making friends, living in a cop is a great way to make fast friends on DH. Kind of like live a healthier life. You guys do five family meals every week. Is that right? Yeah, we've just coordinated that way, and all our meals are completely begin open to everyone in the house for communal groceries. We just pay around twenty dollars a week per person, which is really, really cheap when you think of all the food that you've got, and it's nice because everyone gets a chance to and we trade off cleaning really healthy and delicious. So I just got back from the city. My phone is charged and now I'm on my way to go to dinner at the cafeteria Are crafty. Remain cafeteria here. Aunt Sarah Lawrence is Bates. And the great thing about Bates that we have vegan gluten free England free options. Well, really awesome salad bar. And if Bates doesn't happen to meet your dietary restrictions, the night you show up for the for lunch, whatever lunch or dinner that you come, you can actually talk to one of the chefs, and they'll make you a special meal that fits your restrictions, which is really awesome. So we try our best to be super accommodating here, which I really love. So I'm filming this now because once I get inside Bates, you won't really be able to hear me because it's not a huge, huge Captain Rex for such a small school. So it's going to be a lot of people not think a big space. So you can't really hear. So filming this now gonna walk to Bates and then I'll show you guys the different stations have clarity Station, a vegan station, a entree station of Girl station, a pizza station and a salad bar. So so currently I'm in one of Sarah Lawrence caught earlier in a classroom. And just to give you an example, as you can see, this is not the same as your typical college classroom. We at Sarah Lawrence ten ninety percent of our class or talked seminar sorrow, which are they're taught in the round table discussion, which allows you to have an intimate conversation with your professors and classmates about subject matter at hand. On top of having a round table discussions, we also have this thing called a conference working conference projects. Comets Work is well built on with your professor, and you have a paper, a movie, a book of poems,
