Honors student interview
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Okay, introduce yourself and explain why you chose society. Only waste that's, like four in half hours away. Um, one of the reasons I chose I chose you was just the campus set up. I visited some other places that were more like city based, and they were very late, just connected by roads and everything. Everything is like a really nice nature area. From the moment I came here and was shown around by some old friends who were going here, I just really like school, and I just felt sort of like write for me compared to other places. So can you describe the social climate of us? So you and the academic climate, um, the social climate since I've gotten here has been pretty good. Like, it's definitely less quickie then in high school, but they're still like you sorta have to put yourself out there and like join clubs and activities like sort of find, find the right people in friends. I think that's just normal, friendly place like I've met most. They're like the different organizations and clubs I'm in, so I'd say it's a pretty normal, healthy social climate. What about the academic climate? The academic climate is really nice. You connected the social climate like sort of like who you hang out with, like how dedicated they are academically. There's study lounges in all and all the residence halls and everything. For the most part, it's It's really sort of like up up to you, Teo. Like a lot of times here, friends and people here happened impact on that, too. One of the things I've really noticed since I've come here, um, is that everything is really well run and like, practically done like I've I visited some friends, colleges like in Chicago and the set up of, like there, like the cafeteria system. Just like different things just doesn't work a CZ. Well, they're like, It's like the swipe system, just like a swipe and get whatever food you want to think that sometimes can I blow the quality of stuff like here? Having that, like food system here is a lot better. A CZ well with the textbook rental service is awesome because I hear from friends who go even like more expensive colleges that they have to pay like tons of money for books. For the most part, you could just rent the mountain, get the return inside really long. Wait, that's been super nice since I've come here. Uh, it's also just like a very affordable school, So I think that's really nice, like the tuition is I think they changed it in state for nearly everyone. Is that have more instinct, Like still have, like the statehouse tuition type thing. Here I think it's really good that day Institute that to get like a more like a wider range of student based here, um. Well, there are a lot of Illinois people I have to say. Still, even though there is that thing where it's like, it's very different from high school, but like it's still like very heavy Illinois base. Recently I thought the weather What happened with, uh, I'm not calling off school on that one. Say it was a really bad decision because, like, for me, I'm, uh, campus resident, so doesn't no big deal. I have, like, a fifteen minute walk to class, and even that was bad. But like thinking about the community soon's who, plus we had car issues, they have longer walks. Like I understand that for the university, it would be not very nice till I cancel school and deal with all of that. You really have to think about studentssafety in those times. I guess that could be one of the cons of like, how I said the school is very practical. They might have had different things to think about, but other than that, Well, with the school being like public and not like as money going into it as other schools, I conservancy, like sometimes of their schools, have, like, much nicer or like a lot more research budget stuff like that, more money going into different things that I might see here. For the most part, everything still functions here. Really? Well, so that's all I have to say for frozen guns. The last thing is, if you had to give advice to your senior yourself, what would you tell yourself? Um, like my high school years, your high school scene yourself? Um, probably say, give yourself enough time for studying. My professor is a lot more and, um, sort of developing a personal relationship with them, and it just sort of both motivates you to try more in the course because you don't want to let someone down. You actually sort of know what you like and it's just much easier to be like working like it's almost a Ziff. If there's misunderstandings, it's a lot easier to talk to them. Like Yeah, that's stuff like reaching out to students. I'm concerned, help you figure things out because this is a completely new experience and also just like talking to professors like I said.
