So I'm here with counter walls that were just going to do a quick interview. Connor, why did you choose St Rose? Well, I trust Rose because it's one of the leading music industry programs here in the nation right now. Built where magazine, for example, has raided us, one of the top schools for music industry, battling out with Berkeley constantly. I love the state of the art equipment that we have here. You get to know each other pretty well, but I'm a pretty social person. So I'm happy to get to know everybody that I'm with, whether it be teachers or other students. When it comes to arts college on, sometimes I feel like it gets way too competitive and a sucky construct the life out of me. I found with St rose just come in here on campus. It's like a healthy competition is like, Wow, this person is doing really awesome. Everybody's working with each other, which I think is really neat and sadly, a little different for an art school. Okay, so in your experience, what, like what is the general student body like here? General Soon Body Same rose is very diverse way have a mix of just about anybody from any different economic, economic background, cultural background, so many people from all around the country and even all around the world. It's cool to see that all one together, being a part of the music association and soon association I've seen and got to work with all different clubs through running sound for them and just collaborating with everybody all together. So I've been a part of all these divers and ethnic dance groups that we have can't besides taking part in some of festivals and celebrations highlighting different cultures, which is really neat and cool to see. It's really nice to see that on DH overall, with the student body, as I said before. Pretty warm on DH. It's easy to get to know people here, all right, so I know your music industry major because we're in a bunch of classes together. Like, what's the academic climate, like within your major within the music industry, major? Well, music just in general, you're held to a pretty high standard. Some you need a B and above to Oh, yeah, I don't know. It's good because if you're going to be going into field any field, you should be good and sufficient and craft on DH. I'm glad that they hold us to that kind of standard. Yes, it can be tough, but it's worth it in the end that we can be better people, better musicians and better in the industry field. Better business people in the education field better, better educators. So it makes sense that they want the best out of us because, yes, it's also the school's name on the line here. The teachers are really great when it comes to asking for advice, asking for help. I had a couple of classes my first two years that I needed help on harmony your training, and I was able to receive the extra help that I needed in order to further myself. Tutoring is a great thing to look into here as well. I had a tutor for your training and that really was able to help turn things around for me. Wei have the Academic advice centre here we have the I was about to mention Cruz, Senator Career Center has nothing to do with it. Sometimes you might need to take that extra step, but it's worth it. Okay, so what's your favorite thing about going here and your least favorite thing and why that one's my favorite thing about going here? I think it's a couple things, but they all relate together. I am really happy for all the friendships and connections that have made here game know so many different people being able to collaborate with so many other great musicians, not just all the great musicians, but just other people from other clubs and other of classes on campus, on just getting to see everybody's perspectives on DH, knowing people on a personal level that I would not have had a chance to had I gone somewhere else and it's Yeah, life, business, and just everything is built on the connections that make. So it's good to make healthy ones, and I can say I've made plenty of them here, and the opportunities have been giving through St Rose College is Justus Much of the experience that you have outside of costume as much as it is inside, and my my classes have trained me very well. That was like the first one of the first steps so I could go out and do stuff where I have done a lot of music related business competitions of recording my own personal work outside in the field. It my classes have prepared me to be a professional out my field, and because of what I've learned here, it's allowed me to go out and to do that kind of stuff. Now I'm really starting to see myself live out a dream in entertainment field. I stretched myself out so much there, so many things to get involved with your on campus. I help out with so many different clubs and now the director of social activities as well. I've stretched myself out pretty thin and seen the demand from everything can be so much so I think it's It's a blessing and a curse. You just kind of have to figure it out for yourself, What exactly you're doing and how you really need to figure it out because it does get demanding. Sometimes when you're in the heat of the moment trying to get stuff done, you kind of forget was like way All have lives outside of whatever that one thing is. So I guess that would be difficult things about St Rose. Well, thank you, Connor, for talk with me today, and I will see you guys in the next video.
