But they're about to close. Yeah, I'm about take guys into the library, which I don't know if I should bring food, but they will let me bring food. I just won't open and stuff.

So thank you so much for joining us. Uh, we had a great time today. Uh, but I'll catch you guys next time. This's just kind of ah, you know, a little sneak peek into what a lazy dare at us and you So at the top of the boulevard, which is right behind me going back, all the tree lined beautiful expands behind me. There is the flag pole, which you can see the bottom of right here, but it goes all the way up. Uh, but if you can see also, there is a Diet Coke, a van at the flagpole because almost every day there's some kind of truck giving out free promotions or free food. Or sometimes there's just food trucks there to sell you some food. But let's go have a look at what the Diet Coke van is provide. Mr. James looks like there's a beautiful little display of Coke. Congrats who's made out of bad. That's a big accomplishment for caution sometimes, but state just obviously came to campus getting before tests and letting talk about their opinions and not Diet Coke. So, um, this is an example of something that happened. Three often on campus trucks will just come and ask All right. So hey, guys, this is a typical freshman dorm room. I live in one of many Commons that we have We have Cocker Macintosh. More is the McGinnis Mackel, veiny Krum Armstrong, Kathy Crow, Lloyd and where her? Gina Snyder Mary Hey, pain shuttles, which is a combined one. So in total, we have about seven eight comments here as Southern Methodist University. Um, the one I live in right now is Michael veiny, which is a combined room. So this is like a double. We have my roommate over there when she's not here right now, but that's where I live. So this is my side over here on DH. Typically, what we have is for many, for many rooms, there are sweet style bathrooms, which are shared by two separate rooms. But for rooms like this, we have room. We have a community style bathroom, which is all the way on the outside, which I can show you guys is. It is kind of in a way you get to know more about who lives on your who lives on your floor, and you get to connect with friends, and I have actually made a lot of friends here ever since I moved into this room, and I've made a lot of memories in this room, so yeah, that's what our life is all about. Here, it s of you. Okay, so I decided to show you guys a bit of what my room looks much more in detail. Here is my closet here. I apologize if it's really, really dirty and stuff we I've been just, like running in and out of the room each day. And if you know me, I'm a second semester freshman and just it's just everything. Spring semester with new people, new prospective students coming in. I have to talk a lot. There's just a lot of things you need to take care of. But here is my bed. That is my butt. Is my laptop on the top? I have license. Let's string all the way from my pillow to my closet over here. But basically that's my bed. I have holidays that there's any, like dirty stuff happening over here. Here is where I used to watch my movies. Watchman Netflix get food. Um, and that's where I take my clothes out and stuff. It's been really messy. These past few days. As I said, because of obligations that I have been running in and out on day do have work everyday. So it's been really messy. Here is my table, by the way. Um, yeah, pretty much. That's how my table looks like. It used to be really cleaned this the past semester that I lived to hear lived you here in, but it just became a huge miss after the first few weeks. Sexy mister, here's my roommate side of the room. He consented me that I would let him do it, or he would let me record his side of the room. But he's not in the room right now, so that's a good way opportunity for me to show you guys what our entire room looks like. So I'm here with Frances. She's an art soon that she also lives in boats, and we just wanted to show you kind of what a smaller classroom would look like. That's on you. So here you can see in the background There are a lot of different chairs laid up into this table format, and there are a lot of classes in here like dis classes. So that's the English crafts that freshman take. Um and it's limited fifteen students, and it's basically just a discussion class. And then there are also different history classes and different other, like smaller classes that take place in here. But pretty standard, just kind of like a table with some chairs, are also some kids studying here. Live students studying. I know we're right, but, yeah, it's just like a fun place for those used to hang out when classes are in session. Didn't you want to say about it? Your classroom experience? Yeah, she's our major. So might be different, but well, no, those glasses are less structured. Classroom? Yeah, definitely. It's totally different, like across the whole campus. But this is just an example of a smaller class and definitely the faculty does. Student ratio is like there's so many faculty and so few students. So a lot of my crosses are closer to, like, fifteen people. I classes, Mr With seven people, and usually not all seven of us show up. So I But yeah, you get to have a lot of really cool one on one interactions. Thanks for joining us on both classroom. What's up?
