I'm going to give you all a little House tour. This is where I live now, and it's actually where I lived last year, too. Typically, when you come to animate freshman year, you live in a dorm either on campus, pretty much everyone that I know lived in a dorm on campus or they lived in the Callaway house, which is a really like Greek life oriented freshmen housing, or you like on occasion. I know some freshman that will live in the houses or in some different apartments, but mostly you're either in a dorm or you're in the counting house, and I think there's definitely benefits both. I lived in the Callaway house because I knew a lot of other Greek life people that we're going to live there. It was definitely like a big party all the time, which I don't know. It's totally by personality, but it was a great experience for a freshman year. I'm going to show you a little around my house right now. So this I have a huge room in a lot of the houses in College Station are laid out, so that all of the rooms look exactly the same. For example, my roommates and I, there's four of us in our house is shaped like a giant square, and each of us has our own pantry and refrigerator, and everything's, like, completely laid out equally. Then another big perk of getting to live in a house out here is a big backyard. There's actually a lot of big backyard homes in College Station and Brian because they tend to build student homes with that in mind. So if you do look for a house your sophomore junior senior year, you'll find that in Brian College Station. You either live in a historic house which has been here forever, and those are pretty old, or you live in a brand spanking new college house that was literally made for kids to share. Like my houses, it's made for four girls completely equal or guys. That's kind of interesting because, like you can see on this side of my street. Those air, usually actual residents from Brian Collis. Sheesh, I know there's some college kids mixed in there, and then there's a lot of college houses on this side, which is actually pretty cool because since it is a college town, you do get to interact with residents sometimes and feel like you're in a little bit more of a home city. I'm going to take a look down sorority row because that has been a huge part of my college life. I if anybody's looking at this wanting to join Greek clay, I want you all to get to see what that's like. Then tomorrow we will hopefully get to talk a little bit more about what dorms on campus look like with a few of my friends that lived in them. So I wanted to show you all sorority row here in case there is anybody watching a girl going through that is wanting, doing Greek life. Typically, if you do join a sorority, you would live in it in the house, your sophomore and maybe junior year. I didn't live in the house because I found the Austin house that I'm in and I loved it so much. Typically you would live in a dorm your freshman year and then find maybe an apartment or sorority house your sophomore junior year and then move to a house either your junior, your senior year. That's typically how people move up the ladder. If you're Super Senior Year, all the toys in the house in a house. It's about eight minutes from campus, and there's a ton of extra student housing right around here that it's a lot like mine, which is made exactly for college kids. Those tend to be a little more expensive than a regular house. You would find them historic district, which is actually closer to campus. Those houses are older and smaller, and a lot of the times they're not made to be equal among college students. So we're in hell a Blue Hall right now, which is one of our brand new freshman living dorms. She lived here when she was a freshman, so she's going to tell you a little bit about that Hey, so living here was the absolute greatest. Were there any cons to living here? Freshman here? Honestly, think of one others in the university traffic about it. About the camaraderie, like, Did you get to know more people living in a dorm? Oh, yeah. I met so many people on my floor, especially because they had. There's, like, four different study areas on my floor, so you met new people every day, would study with them for. So this is the outside of Hella Blue Hall, right here. Right now you're looking into a Starbucks, which is on the first floor. Over here, there's basketball courts, and there's some sand volleyball courts back there. A lot of people do that in the spring, in the early fall just to give some perspective here, here's Hella blue, along with a lot of the other older dorms situated and then right a few feet away, right there is some pizza, which is the main campus dining hall, and it's literally a two minute walk away.
