Hey, guys, Welcome back. I am at one of the hidden gems here at A M. It is a top of the rec center. Actually, it's really close to Kyle Field. That's like my favorite spot, like Look at is very beautiful, right? There's the whole beutel. But like, yeah, this is one of the hidden gems here. Here's some like couches that we consent and there's like a chair, I guess, And then they're like little like lounge chairs. People hold like events here. It's really nice, really very like Loki. Nobody really knows here. I really like coming here because it is really relaxing because there are like there isn't like anybody here with you. Usually people like Tio like hold event here, which is like, pretty cool. I think it's like, really cool to, like, take pictures here like because you can see Kyle. Obviously, it's really good for gameday. It's pretty gloomy here in College Station today. It's like about to rain. So there was like a little cold front, but it's alright Way got bundled up with our doctor, but you're the stairs to get up here. There is read Arena. That's the basketball arena right, there's a wreck. So is like the balcony. Basically to the wreck. Yeah. Here. The stairs to come up. And yeah, I hope you all enjoyed. And I hope you'll visit if you'll ever So today, I really actually got Aggie ring, which is a huge tradition here in Texas A and M and the active during symbolizes so much more than just getting in class right here. It's walking the world. Any industry. There's a really solid chance that you're gonna meet another Aggie, and I'd always look out for one another. So this's what kind of looks like today Kyle Field. But usually it's in the association of it looks really cool. Everyone can come and pick up their bring it said. That is really cool. Former student like your parents. They went near any one slide your ring on your finger. Just a really good tradition we have here, so get Howdy, guys. My name is Sheila, and I am the Loudest and the Peratis member of the Fighting Texas Aggie class in twenty. Nineteen, eh? So let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm twenty two years old. I'm from Houston, Texas, which isn't too far from here. And my major is in telecommunications and media studies with a minor in psychology. I absolutely love Texas. And, um, it is unlike anything I've ever experienced before. Wei have a lot of crazy traditions. Kind of like the one that shows you the intro of this video. We're not a cult, though. We definitely our culture. And I can't wait to show you all the hidden gems of this school has to offer. So yeah, come on in. Join me and let's get started. All right. Isn't my roommate right here? He's gonna introduce himself and explain why he chose text saying, and my name's Chris Martigues on. I chose a meme for the opportunities I would have for jobs. Connections. Really? I didn't know anything about the school before accepting, which is kind of crazy, But my parents and parents friends just told me You go to this school and like, you put in work, gonna make connections, and you're gonna get the job that you want to get. So it really was a no brainer for me after hearing that from everyone that went to an Amber knows about it. All right. So go ahead and describe the student body at our school. The first thing that I think is the student body being friendly as a whole on also diverse. I feel like it's a diverse is you wanted to be just joining different organizations and getting your foot out there, whether you're joining something, that major, specific or passion that you have outside of that. So I just describe the student body, like I said before, is welcoming and divers. All right, sir. So what is your major and what is the academic climate in them. Each has a feel. I'm a psychology major, the economic climate. I feel like everyone that is in psychology and takes the specific causes that I've been in. They have a passion for those classes. Not a lot of people will go into psychology and having a job that's specific to that are doing research for sight. But psychology helps and other other realms, whether you want to do counseling or something. In the medical field, itjust helps with interacting with people. So what? I've notices the causes that I take. People just have a passion for learning about how people work alright. And what's your favorite and least favorite part of school? And while I cannot touch on this earlier with the diversity, it's a am. But my favorite part is specifically the diversity of organizations and involvement. You can be in something that's like a social organization or service or passion, like photography or outdoor adventures. If you like to go camping. I'm in immense organization in a service organization, and there's really just like opportunities to do all kinds of things. If you if you want to do something and you can start a club where you can join it, So I think that's that's cool was the second part of the question least favorite part of the least favorite. Lisa would have to go along with the size of the student body. It's a little noticeable when you're in intro classes and the lecture sizes three hundred students, and it doesn't feel as personable. But at the same time, you can, like, break down that barrier by going to your professor's office hours more on bits, really, just what you want to get out of it. But I do kind of notice that there's less like student to professor interactions compared to other schools that maybe have smaller class sizes. All right, so now we get some more perspective from my fellow roommate here, we'll go and introduce himself. I'm Jack Jacobson on economy, major philosophy, minor from East in Texas and a member of the class of twenty nineteen a U. S. O. Go ahead and explain. So that's why you chose Texas. So I chose text saying them for for the traditions for the student life, you know, and the prestige. You know, it's one of the best colleges in Texas, and I want on my student tour and and really felt at home here. And Okay, well, my mom oxide, honestly chosen because of its engineering program, was with three e. T. And a and A. And I didn't get into the engineering program at U T, so it was just kind of like a defaulting, But, I mean, I'm happy now. It's been four years here. I've found my my own niche. Talk it. All right. So now you described the student body at our school. Go ahead and go first. So what I could say about in and on his people is that everybody's just unbelievably friendly in the sense that, like, I know, like, I hear that, like on the east Coast, you know, you can't You can't be saying like what's that? The people are just randomly on the street. But am everybody says hi to each other. For the most part, they'll entertain. You know, if you got any questions about where something is on campus, like they have glad Feli help you having on that. And this is a very welcoming environment for sure. Jefferson. Glad, Yes, gladly whatever. Obviously right? Uh, yeah, I agree with everything he said. You know, the hospitality is definitely really day now, but also, I think that's just a part of, like, the embodiment of the Aggie family, which is something that we really believe in today in them. And, you know, it's reflected through the hospitality. When you're on campus, it's reflected when you're off campus and when you're looking for a job, usually got frag ese, it's Ah, that's a really big thing around here. And then it's even reflected afterwards when we have things like Muster, where like we honor Agnese, who since graduated a long time ago but in the past way in the past year or so, there's a lot of Aggie family traditions and a lot of a lot of that. A lot of spirit that block, right? You get here, it gets them right right in here, spread through your whole body, just in that, Uh, yeah, I agree with everything, he said. You know, the hospitality is definitely really day now, but also, I think that's just a part of like the embodiment of the Aggie family, which is something that we really believe in. Today in them, and you know, it's reflected through the hospitality. When you're on campus, it's reflected when you're off campus and when you're looking for a job, usually got frag ese. It's Ah, that's a really big thing around here. And then it's even reflected afterwards when we have things like Muster, where like we honor Maggie's, who've since graduated a long time ago, but he passed away in the past year or so. There's a lot of Aggie family traditions and a lot of a lot of that. A lot of spirit, huh? All right, you get here, it gets them right right in here. Spread through your whole body, and you just All right, Next question. Describe your major, What is your major? And described the academic climate. So I'll go first. My major is industria distribution. So in layman's terms, that's basically engineering and supply chain slash sales combined into one. Um, it's a very, very major, very diverse. You have many opportunities out there after graduation. I think like the afflicted. They give like ninety eight percent jobs after after graduation. So that's very, very promising. I was academic climate's very, very laid back at least compared to other engineering majors. Definitely not come that your neck like a computer engineer, which which, which is what I was before, so definitely, definitely good environment. We have every like every week or two weeks we have, like a like a luncheon on our buildings long, we're like a company will come in like, you know, talk to us and everything. And it was provide, like Corinne knows, or any any cake topper catering. So that's always great to have in the middle of the day. Yeah, it's a great, great culture. I would say. I don't know if any other majors have like a specific, close knit culture like Idea does. So that's something I'm very happy to be a part of. It s o. I was originally political science, Manami economics, and they're both pretty similar because the cool thing is we have classes in the Bush school, which is named after President Bush, the first President Bush. And it's right next to the Bush library, which is actually where his late wife, Barbara, is buried and its whole presidential libraries. And so that's awesome, because it's sort of like gives our school in extra prestige, and it gives you a good opportunity to be around like, you know, some really relevant history and stuff. So that's awesome. And within the school of e Con, it's super diverse, and it's a lot of people there. There's a lot of really prestigious professors there and a lot of cool opportunities for you to do research and for your work on campus and for you to take a lot of really interesting classes. Question is what's my favorite part of a new and least favorite part of them and why? So we'll just start with least every part. I would say that you really have to get involved in order to have, Ah, consistent friend, because everybody has. I'm not saying this is a negative thing either. It's a both positive and negative. Yeah, everybody has very busy schedules and, like no one really has time to be hanging out with friends and just meet on campus and stuff like everybody. Everybody's busy at all times, so there's a very strong implication to get involved and kind of get it get into the pipelines where you would belong on campus. So I mean, that obviously has its benefits because then you would have friends. But if you're not the type Tio to go out for organizations and go through a very stringent recruiting process and you're just not that, like, outgoing person, that could be a drawback for you. But, I mean, I would say, Yeah, it's a it's a It's a pleasant negative, but yeah, and then as for my favorite part, well, I think my favorite part is going to be the extension. The extensiveness of the Agony network. I mean, right now we have, like, sixty thousand people on campus, and I'm sure, like, you know, from all the people they're alive and still Aggie is theirs upwards of a million. Aggie is out there that are willing to help you. And I know I mean, just based off of traditions that we have here in the culture that we have here, it doesn't just stop on campus. It extends out into the real world. So I'm gonna be very helpful inhabitable. Tell me, reach my career ambitions. Alright, so favorite least favorite party campus. My favorite part is student life. I think this manifest itself in a few different ways. First of all, game days are amazing specifically for football, but also we have a huge array of different competitive sports were great baseball. I think we're really good at track and like soccer, too. And so there's, oh, in basketball. There's a ton of different like events for you to go to as a part of the student body that we really get involved, like in our sports. And then, on top of that, in terms of student life there, so many. I think there's, like, over a thousand student organizations. And so there's It's really easy for you to find something to get involved in, and it's cool to have like that involvement. And, you know, like it makes you a little bit busier. But it's kind of good to be busy sometimes, you know, especially with something that you can really like, invest your time in. And so that's really awesome. And then also, the students on campus are so friendly, everyone wants to talk to everybody. It's that's an aspect of student life that I really like. And so that's why student life is probably my favorite thing about university. Least Favorite thing has got to be parking man this university's growing fast. There's I think we have, like, fifteen, twenty thousand more kids here now than we did when ever could, and I first got to campus. So it's growing fast and parking is top. So I recommend if you're coming here, take the buses. The bus system goes all over the city. It'll take you from wherever you live to your class. It's really easy do that. You don't have to park a sparking stuff. Hey, guys, what is up? So I've already showed you around historic district. But I thought it would only be fair to show you guys around the White Creek dorms here on campus at Texas A and M, And to do so I'm gonna introduce you to my friend Nadia body, and she's going to show you around her white creek door. Here we balance gets started. So first we have the fed, the main attraction in my favorite place here. So in White Creek, every bed is a full size. But in all the other dorms on campus, there are twins. So if you don't like Greek, get this huge beds perfect for your friends will sleep when you want to sleep over. Or just if you want to take up all the room, you can't. Amazing. Do you have a nice closet space? Nice closet space. Here she is. My closet is huge. I brought so much clothes and I came here. I had no idea. I like Didn't think it would say I even bought an extra storage unit, but ended him not needing it. I have a bunch of extra room. It's really big. It's perfect. For hanging up your shoes and then we even have the shelf up here. That's good for your boots, too. Amazing. What's your favorite part of your room? I think. My favorite part. It is definitely what I like to call the cave. Just cave under here. I have a bean bag and then some pillows. And it's where my friends love to come, and we all hang out. We sit under here for hours on end, and you can eat here. You can sleep here. You can study here, do it all in the cave. Amazing. So tell me much a desk space. So my desk, it's actually a really good size compared to other dust that I've seen. And a fun thing about this test is that it actually extends out. So all of the little storage units here, they all extend out room like you. For some reason, this was a marginal for you. You can make it bigger. Amazing. Thank you so much for showing us around. Hey, guys were standing outside our baseball field, this blue bell park across the street, our softball fields and soccer fields right behind it. I'm gonna keep walking right in front is read Arena. This is where our best gold gave us. Our people love going to basketball games, so usually my friends and I get there, like an hour before before the game starts and we get courtside seats, so it's all worth it. There's sometimes there's free food, depending on the events. And sometime one time we got free T shirts from water. Bigger because we're standing in the water burger seats. It was great. They're, like, randomly chosen. We got them that time. Fun fact about Reed Arena. We actually had a concert. Teo Fundraise for Hurricane Harvey. So the five former presidents came and Lady Gaga sag. It was amazing. So that's my favorite moment at Reed Arena. So this is more of like the sports side of campus. Behind the fields are the intramural fields, and so that's if you don't get to sport or you just like doing it for fun. No, you don't get into a team. That's where everybody goes. It's really fine. All these organizations make teams, so it's just another thing to do here on campus. So right now I am outside of which is a dining law, and you'll see the cool Aggie land little watering our thing right behind me. And I'm about to turn the camera around for you to see your very own farmers market here on the Texas A and M campus. It's really cute and small, but we'll get it right next to the fountain. Outside of Visa, you'll see students banner holding, which is a very popular thing here. There's a bunch of different stands. A lemonade, snow cones, succulents, anything you could think of their currently selling it on campus. And it's actually really, really cute. So, yeah, that is what farmers market on the Texas A and M campus looks like. So now I'm gonna show you guys around. My bedroom is kind of like my sanctuary or my home away from home, and I don't actually live in a dorm room. I live in an area called the Historic District. It's about a mile away from campus, right behind Kyle Field, and some of the homes in this neighborhood have been around since the eighteen eighties. If I'm not mistaken, it's a really cute neighborhood. And all the homes are kind of old school lookin. But the insides are great and yeah, so here we go. So right off the bat when you walk into my room, you first see these beanbags in this fuzzy rug make today. Great. I absolutely love this area for reading. I've got these huge windows from one side to the other side of the house, and it's just beautiful. Let's in so much light. I've got my tapestry of my bed because you know, Tumbler and Pinterest would not let me do college without one. And this is a bookshelf that my roommate's actually wanted to get rid of, so I just threw a could black paint on it, and I kept it and I love it because it holds all of the things that I don't have room anywhere else in the house to put, like my Polaroid cameras, the binders, my books, a bike helmet that I don't really use my yoga mat. Other things that I am my backpack because, you know, that's what We're here for school. I got this thing from Target. Don't what it is, but I love it. And then we'll come to the left side of my room, and this is my desk area. We've kind of got this bulletin board I don't really know. White says January, It's a march while I'm recording this, and that is embarrassing. I've got a bunch of pictures of my friends up on my walls because I absolutely love keeping good Mans Paro Tip. If you're going to study at a desk, make sure to keep little treats because Spaeder, little old. So that's embarrassing. But essentially, they kind of keep me going binders and stuff. And I was spaced timing a friend earlier, hide eyes and lapping out Where to take you guys next. These air binders? Yeah, just kind of says she was Binder. Please don't touch next a minute. So you guys a closet? But I'm a little nervous about what it looks like right now. Excuse the mess. If there's any. This is my closet where I keep all my clothes. Kind of bags a suitcase to pack things up. And another pro tip is that these guys are your best friend. They store a lot of clothes. I like to keep up pajamas, socks, everything and misuse all kind of in this area. And then I'm gonna bring you guys over here too. Little Mir. Yes. And this is a little jewelry area that I have. Girls, let me tell you, it's not really hard. It's just a couple thumbtacks, and you just hang your jewelry in a little fun quote and then this is my second kind of closet storage area that I've got. I like to keep laundry baskets and things of the sorts, kind of out of sight, and that's what I use this space for. Also, for anyone else that has WiFi issues, I have a WiFi extender, and that thing has saved the day many times because, let me tell you, it is tough not having what son in the house. And now you talk to you guys like this for the rest of the video. So it's not a dorm room, but I absolutely love living in a home with four of my friends. It is honestly, like having family here in this city and its great. Now I'm gonna try to find you guys a dorm room to show you guys around. But some of the houses in this neighborhood are honestly so cute and old, but they don't look old on the inside. This you would never tell how old this house is by just looking at it. So, yeah. Welcome to my house in the historic district. So we're at May's right now. This is our business school and them This is my print got in high, so she's business major as well. So she's going to help us out with the tour. So let's get started. So we are at the Relais Energy Securities and Commodities Trading Centre. We have the whole stock exchange thing going on, and you look inside of you. You're able to see off all these screens. Yeah, well, this crew here, and so this is actually for one of the finance classes. And if you actually get to manage funds, actual real funds and if it's one of those, like, if you do well, you actually match than what you pass, it's a pasture field class. It's really hard. Well, it's very interesting. You get real life experience from it. You can make money. Yo's see this working so cut. And what's your major? Of course, more business made you, but we don't get to choose our majors until the beginning of our junior year end of sophomore and herself for you. But I have. But what I'm wanting to go into is I want Teo management with entrepreneurship track or in HR tries is so at the end of my semester, I'm going toe. I declare marketing. That's my major. That's what I'm gonna do. Right now we're walking to the atrium, and that's like the center. It's where all the halls meet. Yes. So this It's kind of literally mazes amaze. And Comelec wraps around. And so the atrium is the very center, Like the main entrance. So why did you choose And well, my parents went to Anna. My grandfather went to Anna, my uncle's Teo e. I just may specifically because I wanted to work in a corporate field. That was where I thought I was meant to be, actually. Hi. For maize. And I got here. What's your favorite anime tradition? My favorite tradition. I met you s ome n a L is a pep rally that we do midnight before game before football games and everybody gets together the whole student body. And we put this year's, but we call them meals here. So, um, what is your favorite thing about my least favorite you That's a hard one. Thanks. Maybe the fact that those student services air all the way out West campus, but they're currently being built to be on Main campus by twenty, twenty, twenty, twenty one. Yeah, So the reason that their own West campus right now they're built, they're making new buildings for them. So they have therefore now, But it's a little out of our ways, so that's kind. It's kind of annoying, but, you know, they're like, It gets worse before it gets better. So we're gonna have great facilities and a little bit. Thank you. So here we are. These are more. They're more classrooms around us, just going to come in real quick. This is what a small classroom here looks like. And usually this heart for a smaller sections or four speakers. Thanks. Oh, yeah.

And it just gives you like introduction to business. It's a really great program. You get to network a lot. I think we could go in because I know they're Yeah, they're taking the test right now, but we could just keep walking. We can show them the corporate sponsors, this one. That's true. These air corporate sponsors well free advertising. So that's what I would have. My business one. Oh, one class was back there. That's our big big auditorium lecture hall.
