Hello There

So I'll start my tour here at the PCL. It's one of the biggest libraries and one closest to my dorm, which also soon. Right now, there's a bunch of different events going on right here to do a trash treasure thing. So everything here's a dollar, which is pretty, pretty dope. Um, I'll take you into PCL later tonight when I know it's going to be busy because one thing you don't know about college, everybody, Martin, some people, those people wait till the last minute to do their stuff, and it's always late at night. So the best time to show you the library is like right here where I am right now is called Speedway. This path takes you all the way down. It's in a museum that way. Keep stretching out. Two, maybe some of the electrical engineering buildings. I don't know. I'm a theater major, so that'll do all that. So one cool thing about Speedway is this is where a lot of the words are table ing, so you'll learn about student or eggs. Some people just be giving out food. Sometimes there's petting zoos. There's petting Zoo is actually a lot. For some reason, I don't understand why right here is my dormitory. And you know, as a first year, you're probably going to be saying here or I mean, as a UTI student, you're going to come here anyway. So this is the Jester West Center. I'll be checking you in here. One thing to know about you T is this place is forty acres long, so you either going to be walking unless you're fortunate enough to have wheels. So big, big, big college thing. Have some sort of transportation before coming here. So whether it's a board, that's better. Whether it's a board, Bye or scooter, I don't know if you want to bring a non motorized scooter like push away the class. Do it because normally the weather is a little bit in today, so the speedway is not completely crowded. But imagine. But like, five hundred people go in the same direction one way and you're trying to get the class. It's gonna be annoying to get through all those people with a bike, but I mean, they see someone on a bike, they're eventually going to move so it's better to have that and just walk. Another cool take about UT is that they have a bike sharing program. So if you're UT student, you're able which you're ut I t to check out these bikes for an hour and bring him back and park him at any of these stations or any stations that looked like this. So that's one thing that I can. I commend you. Tr Thank you really support a students were getting around even like if I wanted to go somewhere where I wanted to go shopping or something like that. I don't have my car on campus. So I take the bus system, used the bus system the way I I am able to get on the bus when I'm paying for it is my duty. I d. So if you lose that thing, you know, since in dollars replacement pick up. So here I am with gestures Starbucks. There's a wind eze down there. Take you that way. Did you get your And in here you'll see some organizations table. Wendy is fun. Fact, this is like the highest grossing what news like ever. But what's extremely ironic about this place is like Walmart. It's just like a WalMart where there's so much, so much going in and on Lee like three people working at a time. But it is the hot spot, you know, I'll bring back around like I want to see. Well, thirty, I bet this place will be back. All right. Continuing my tour of Dpc Mel, we're on the second level right now, which is the level you in Toronto. It's like, So here's the thing with the PCO it's I know a really good study spot. There's multiple floors or six floors, so it all depends on what you're studying to decide where your study. So if you're doing like group were collaborative work, you go to the fifth floor. The reason why it's a Saturday nights and probably released. The reason why is that? It's kind of it's literally being noisy, so I can go here and not change my level of voice because everybody's here normally allowed anyway. Let's see. Normally if I came here like three in the morning, they're being crept people in all these rooms, there's also the rooms that you can, you know, runout. Just little looks in crannies, whatever. You could find a place to go. Said you'll do it. That, Yeah, studying. Find people that you know all the time. A bit. Sit up. Thank you. Oh, come on. Studying. This is also I do not come to the fifth floor unless, I mean, if I have something to do, I'll come here. But I mean, if it's a really, really important like unless I tried to, like, find a place for myself. I don't here like hooker, So stay in your rooms. I'm cool thing really cool. If you have, like a group work, they have these little like TV's that you can use so late air media, you type in the code, and whatever you have displayed on the screen, we'll pop up on there and Yeah, you guys should do like group work. Hopefully it's work. We courage does work. There's so many random things that happened on the fifth floor like last semester. There was Library Olympics. Look it up on YouTube, UT Library Olympics. They're going to see some stuff pretty entertaining. So right here is just a west center where I live in resign. Same thing about you is how to get past every door. You need to have your beauty. Phyllis is during the day. You go to get everywhere. So right here, there's some other places. Where Or do you think that's a warning? That's something for off campus living anyway. So throughout these holes you'll see posters and banners. Not this is where you'll go to sea. Like what's going on campus takes the lives of This is music festivals. That happened mostly last year. It doesn't bye trials. Play is tutoring. Everything is mostly on bulletin boards, random events you might Hi guys.

All right. Uh, So how do you feel about like, the campus climate? The how? How does UT feel as compared to other schools? Um, first of all, I really like what I like about Austin is that there's a huge diversity, might come from South Texas, and there's usually, like, just all Hispanic. So when I came here, my started meeting and meeting a lot of people at learning about different cultures and races which is something I really like about Austin. All right, So while we're going to be honest with our high school seniors here, watching, what is your favorite thing about college and your least favorite thing so far? That's a tough question.

Everywhere picture of the tower, which I guess I could take you to want to say. All right. Almost pluggers. It hasn't been that long. Has been like Clive. But I'm gonna legally cross the street, not jaywalk. It's no Yeah. So these are some of the off campus places like this building. Right here is the Castillion. So, you know, those are closer Lick off campus right here is considered West campus. So West campus is, uh, any living that's here is not controlled directly by UT. So probably not gonna be our a's these air. So where's the juniors and sophomores go. You know what they're tired of?

Tracking what my fingers is on point right now, most rooms have a saying, Let's see going out. One thing people are really concerned about is, you know, safety especially nowadays with everything is current. Safety is a really big thing with schools and for parents to worry about, too. Help laundry. What? You access that? What? Your key, like same room. Like the room key that they give you is the same one for logic. Quoting like ut hundreds free So close one's open You can hop in larger whoever you want to their study rooms on each floor everywhere every corner work beauty plate locked on it so or The only way you can get in each floor is if you have your ID. So I can't stress enough. Keep up with your beauty. I'd That is your duty to everything. Library checks, outs getting into your door, getting in past midnight, getting past the big Chester West doors past midnight. You need your i d. To verify that you are a student. All right.

But Greg, open toe when one You could check a basketball volleyballs, crack it, balls, whatever else you need. There's plenty of vending machines, you know, so you could get something to drink. Yeah, let's see. So also, another thing about your teeth is late at night. They have it. They called Sure ride. So those hearts right there, you signed up for the program. And if you live, like further, like like West campus somewhere. So what? Haven't you walk by yourself? You'll get rides from Jester Centre and they'll take you to where you live. It's a little bit of a wait. So another option is sure Lift uses the lift app. And ifyou're ut student, they'll take you wherever you need to go after eleven. So if you're here late at night, so times you will be you can just have them pick you up on campus and they'll take you home for free. Oh, all right. I'm almost Beckett here. Justice Center.

But, you know, it's whatever it's not a full scale with, so I can't really get on their butts, right? All right, now that it is twelve. Forty, I'm back here Jester, West Center. And in order to get past the big metal doors, I'm gonna have to use my stupid idea. Like I said, it's your keys, Tio. Everything cool, You get to pull that out. That's cool. You can use this.
