And I feel safe here. Thanks again for watching my videos comment like subscribe. How? Like my YouTube channel Bolognese. You can still follow me, I hope the sea around Okay, so now we're going to check out the Tournament Learning Center, which houses a couple things. So let's go check it out. So the first thing that's really big Beth Kettleman is it has the study abroad office, which has lots of information about anything. Study brought related. They can help you. I'll like it stuff. There's also standing desks here. Also, that's one end of the writing center. The other part of the reading center is coming up. Um, there's like posters and stuff on the walls to inspire. Then we have the Honors Lounge, which I go to the honors program and has much computers on his person. And then there's this nice kind of further land just for everyone. Probably mostly honest kids do go back here because they know it exists. And then this is an example. Classroom in total mint had actually been in that room birth three classes so far. The bottom floor of total men is they're all dry and lecture halls, and then the upper floors continue to be classrooms like the one on the second floor of that I just showed you, but yet thes air all just don't lecture halls on Hi, My name's Lauren Schwarz Bart, and I'm currently a freshman in my second semester Temple University. I'm a film in media Arts major with a minor in general business studies, and I'm also an honor student. So that's my building. I'm from South Orange, New Jersey, which is a medium like size town in North Jersey, New York City, and I chose Temple University for a couple reasons. First of all, I love the film program, and that's my major. So that's important. My grandparent's win here. So that was like some interest in the school, and I just absolutely fell in love with the campus When I toward it. It was like a dark horse candidate that just totally blew me away. This was the first cool applied to the first luggage into, and now I'm here and I love it. Tampere University is a city school, but it's really nice because it's in North Philly, so it's not like right in City Center. But it's super easy to get there that you can see it really like you concede you couldn't walk to City Center. You can also just like so I take the scepter for handy It's a pretty big school. It has about thirty thousand undergrad, but it doesn't like feel overwhelmed. I don't feel like I'm a number here and said, I feel like I'm just part of a really big, bustling, active community. A lot of people. I mean, I'm wearing Temple gear today and I didn't even like, plan that for this video. Like I just wear my gear because I'm proud of this school and so many people are proud of Temple. I absolutely loved being here makes me happy walk around campus. I feel like I I really picked the best place for me and I'm so excited take you along to see my room to see the campus, to learn more about it because, you know, this could be the perfect place for you as well. Well, Hey, So sorry, my chairs. Look, Ricky, in this video, I'm going to talk about some quick facts about Temp University, which I'm rapping today, kind of totally by chance. That's kind of fun. So Temple is a pretty big school. It has about thirty thousand undergraduate students, about ten thousand grad students. That's like forty thousand people spread out and there are several campuses. There's Main Campus in Philadelphia. There's also like the center city portion of that. And then there's Temple Rome, Temple Tokyo, I believe so. We're spread out. And there's also the Ambler program, which is more of a rural aspect, which has some other field. Like some other majors are kind of base there. And you can also take classes at your freshman year and then come to the main campus for suffrage in your seat here, which is pickle. Tom University is a state school public school, and it's in North Philadelphia. It covers kind of like a rectangle. Hang on a sec. Okay, so it's more than get square. But these are all like the buildings and then finish all around here, or apartments for students live. That's pretty cool. About seventy percent of the students are from Pennsylvania, and then I guess thirty percent are not. I'm one of them, those thirty percent because I am from New Jersey, which still is in that pharmacy mania. But it's a different state. I will say, though, even from even though most people offer Pennsylvania, penciling is big state. There's lots field from all over Pennsylvania, so it's not just like they're stabbing two percent of the same people around. That's not at all what it's like. There's still such a diverse culture here, and it's really, really, really, really, really incredible. And you gotta check it out. Also it has, according to the website, that just checked a fifty fifty eight except percent acceptance rate so you could easily get in if you tried. The overall student faculty ratio is fourteen to one. However, I think that's probably pretty skewed from like the small honors classes and smaller like upper level classes. But still, unless you want Giant Lecture Hall, which is like anywhere from one hundred fifty teo, maybe three hundred people, you'LL still always have that last period or the recitation with a smaller group, so it probably will feel a lot more like that closer ratio, so that's pretty exciting. So Temple has almost a thousand five hundred like art events that I think everyone puts on lots of plays. There's so many things you could do on campus every foot first every Friday. There's like a night out element. And so that's from nine p. M. To midnight. So So you understand Friday night. But you don't want to go like rah rah partying. Then you go to a night owl, that which is really nice and every first Friday, the month they have bingo. And you could win really nice stuff, like Airpods or speaker or something just from winning. Bingo. I haven't won being your yet, but so my friends have one being so It is possible. Temple also has, and a lot of suffering to give one school. It has thirty five. Like intercollegiate sports clubs, it is thirty three Greeks like Greek life organizations like three hundred plus general clubs, service programs, it really has everything. You bu everyone be here and do what ever you want to do here. And if for some reason, the club they want that public you want isn't he is not in existence. You get something together and you can make it happen. The only thing I will say about Temple is that it is really windy. I didn't know I was going to win these. So be prepared for your umbrella to die. And let's get out of those about umbrellas. Yes, there's some quick facts on Temple. I hope you enjoy and learn something new. Hi guys. I'm going to give you guys a quick apartment tour. I think to know I do live off campus again. I am a junior at Temple, and once you hit sophomore, people start migrating off campus and getting their off campus apartments, and that is what I did. It's not as clean as it usually is. My roommate and I are both very busy going back to school and going backto work after break, and he's just crazy. So I think it don't give you guys a little insight to out where I live. I always like a apartment tours, even though I know I'm going to live in one that doesn't look anything like the one I'm getting a tour of, but I still think they're fine. This is when you first walk in from our door, walk right into our living room. It's all right, you know, it's tiny, It's very tiny and our conductor is a little too big. Four. Our area. Let's sit out here. Come on tonight's of watching the Bachelor and the Food Network. It's a great time. Then we walk over this way and we go into our kitchen, keep our food than our. It's very, very tiny, so you can see that you put a lot of things on the counter. Please, Basic kitchen. We keep all of our glasses and plates in the Cabinet. I mean, you wouldn't expect anything less right on DH. Then we won't have a little too section over here. This is my side. It's pretty stocked. I like doing a lot of cooking, so I have a lot of kitchen gadgets, like the Instant pa and a popcorn maker in a blender. There's even a crock pot here. We also have this sign that everybody signs when they come and visit us, and I think it's really fun. And then if you go back that way, we have our laundry area and then that's my roommate's room. But I'm not going to show that to you guys keep walking back this way. We're gonna get into my room, Uh, kind of a master. Sorry, very. I have a lot of stuff in here coming from Virginia. Teo, Philadelphia. I brought basically my whole bedroom in Virginia. So yeah, TV really small. Everybody have a bigger TV, but I make do with it. Closet also jam packed full of stop. It doesn't even fit. I also I also the calendar when he first walked in and I put a lot of my important dates on a friend's poster. Friends is my favorite show. I actually have another one over there. Yeah, that is my bedroom. I feel like I should show you the bathroom, even though it's just a bathroom. But people are always like Natalie. Do you have a bathroom? And I'm like, yeah, doesn't every house of a feather? I mean another asking to use it. But you should just like, can I use your bathroom? Not. Do you have that room? I don't know. Maybe I'm just weird, but I'll show you the bathroom people. Get the light switch. So they think is on this which apparently it is like on this aside and most bound like would be to your right to your left. Ours is to your right. This picture about Mermaid gets knocked down all the time, but it's a start. Lovely, not so special. Great. Lf that is my apartment again and told you not very clean, I apologize. It's a very busy week getting back into the swing of things, but I hope you enjoyed that little tiny
