Like, really underestimate how pretty it actually is here. Now, would you describe the student body is pretty, um, moving. Yeah, there's definitely like like people hang out with their own groups and stuff. I'd say everyone in generals like, really nice, like everyone's always like, I don't know, I've never I've never had someone like be really rude to me or something or just, like openly, like not want to be my friend or something. They'll always be, like, really nice, even if you don't hang out with him, right? People really don't push you into anything, right? Not really. So can you describe, like, your typical Friday night for me? Um, usually, like my Friday nights could either go like two ways. Um, like there are gonna be like drugs and alcohol there, But like, they really do not pressure you into doing anything like you. Um and do you feel like Greek life is really important on campus? Do you feel like a lot of people are in Greek life, or is it just kind of like there. Um, actually, I'm feel like Greek life is a big thing when it comes to lake parties and stuff. Like, if you want to, like, socialized, Warren gets meat more people. Um, but you could definitely, like, do it without Greek life, if you like. So it definitely depends like what you're into. Can you talk about, like, your favorite places to eat and and where you end up going over and over or what you don't like? Um, I definitely have to say that I a lot at the union. Um, but yeah, like, also able that I go to the dining halls, and some of them are definitely better than others. You can definitely, like, check the menu like on the lake on the You have to see, Like, which one has stuff like you, Like more.

I, like, love it, um and like socially and definitely have to say that I love, like, the cultural centers, because I'm a really big part of, like, the Puerto Rican, that American Culture Center. I don't know, I met, like so many friends through there, definitely like one of my favorite places. Food organization in the sense of I don't really know where I'm going with its far really, like, uh, food and some dining halls are definitely a lot better than other is like a priority. Um, let's say a lot of professors, like I wouldn't say a lot of them. Some professors aren't really like that into what they're teaching, so they'll be, like, pretty tired about it. I don't really I mean, I know a lot of people say that the wind is Oh, yeah, the wind is terrible. Yeah, the one who's really bad, like the entire campus is just, like, one huge wind tunnel. What has been your favorite class and why my favorite class? Um okay. The professor, the professor's like he's so into and you just like really, really want, engage more in the class like, absolutely loved it. Like, he was literally saying, Holly, we never really got to know him too well, but he was saying, like, Oh, yeah, if you if you like everyone a letter recommendation, please. You mentioned earlier that you're in your store center? How do you feel about the town? Do you like it? I like absolutely love store center, like earlier this week. Uh, there's like a high school right next to the school. Um, they had, like, uh, a couple activity is there for the kids. Um, and can you tell me your major? Um, right now, I'm psychology, but I want to switch in tow PNB, which is physiology in neurobiology. Do you feel like there are a lot of class options for you? Um, I'd actually say they're like, There's so many classes like it's hard to pick from them. Like, choose the classes you want because they do, like, priority, like, have seniority with people that have, like, more credits. Like, definitely, There's so many classes for me. You will find something to put their right All right. Can you give me one piece of advice that you would give Teo a prospective student or somebody who has been accepted? Um, if you still have the opportunity, I'd definitely say take AP classes because, like, people don't really understand how how having more credits can really help you in college. Uh, but if you're, like, already accepted, you're already a senior, I definitely say, just like, um, choose wherever you feel the most, most comfortable. If you don't feel like that connection like you're not going to thrive like I'd say, like, choose where you feel most comfortable and where you feel like most happy and where you, like, see the most opportunities that you could have. I really appreciated you doing this interview for me, and I will see you later.
