We're about to head to the dining hall. C over, Kyle. Only a private video. It's the dining car. So this is how the timing, Carla CR, where you put your plaits underdone. Who are you looking like that? Are you there? Worse. So this is typically what I get every day, and Erica gets another Harmless. There's kind of like the station over there. You can make your own. That's like that, that she are dying for you. Cope. I know you like to come here after my idiom because it's on the campus sound. It's probably the best dining hall parents at Uni, so definitely recommend we are. And they also have a popcorn machine battery like popcorn. But if you d'oh their news Hey, guys, Right now I'm a Perkins student center. This is our second student center, where we goto hangout Gaba bitey fun. So I'm going to show you the first lounge. So on the other side of those tables, there are all the different food options. In the lounge chair, there's a Dunkin Donuts, a burrito place sandwich shops. So this is where people go to grab a bite to eat. Study. On the weekends. We have this thing called Perkins Live, which is a late night programming, and they have all sorts of Carl's. Last week on my friends and I went to a really fun paint night. That person's live. If you follow the steps down, we'll go to the hen zone, which is where we have all kinds of fun things like Ping pong. So welcome to the hand zone. Over here are the video games people just playing and then we have lots of fun. Some people are really good on over this way. We have to think our problem is quite hard. Come on. But all of their heart. This is a hands on a great place to have fun with your friends. So Perkins is also home to all the offices of the different registered student organizations, also known as our ESOS. So a lot of the big organ organizations will have their offices down here so you can go there and ask some questions about all their different programming. And this is where, like the board of all the difference, our SOS meet to come up with really cool events and things as you can see here. Here's a little bored with all the things coming up yet. So I'm gonna head upstairs to show you one last lounge at the Perkins. So this is our last lounge. Great place to come and study. Uh, yeah. This is the Perkins Student Center, CIA. Hey, I'm going to show you around my door right now, so I live in apartment style housing. So that means there's four of us who live here. We have a little common area and the kitchen, so let me show you around. So over here we have the bathroom. Not the most interesting thing, but we have one sink out here and then sink inside the bathroom itself shower. So it's nice to not be like have to share a bathroom with people on the floor or anything like that. That's a park of living in the apartment style housing. We have our own little kitchen. It's quite small, but it definitely works. Some Cabinet space. The basics. We got an oven, stove sink, no dishwasher. Ah, this is my room mates room, So there's two people to a room.

After not having won last year's super super nice. Lots of storage, our cleaning supplies, there's no closet. Well, then let me show you my room. So this is my room we can see on my storage things. Nothing too fancy closet over there and a desk over here. So every room comes with a bed, a desk Onda wardrobe. So I'm like a chair for the desk and drawers, so you don't have to worry about buying any of that. One tip I would recommend super super Super Helpful is getting a mattress pad. So it's basically this, like like thick foam. Like, I don't know. Maybe it's memory foam cushion that goes on top of your bed, and it makes it amazing. So it has helped me sleep like a baby here. I sleep better here than I do at home because of this super nice mattress pad. Um Yep. So let me show you my roommate. Side of the room. Super bright. So it's a little hard to see. But same thing she has her bed, her closet. But yeah, that's about it. This is called the Christiana Towers. I'm the only apartment style housing on campus, but it's pretty bad I'm on the fourteenth floor. And let me tell you, my favorite part about living here is the view. So since we live on the fourteenth floor or up super high and we get super nice sunset so that's the other part of the building, you can see it all up here. So where I parked my car? So you are able to bring your cars on campus? You can park them in the slot here. And yeah, I love the view. I'm super nice when it snows. Sunrise. Sunset? Yeah. So that's about it.

A medical diagnosis major Udi's about an hour away from my house. I live in Dover, so, you know, not too far. Not too close. In state tuition is like had no joke at the same time. Um, but I also like Yoon Hee for its events and bunch of organizations to joy. There's over, like, four hundred organizations to join. Pretty cool. I know from me I to get in touch with my culture a little bit more. So I tryto, um, go to events or even, like, join clubs that are more towards like me and my community. Um, I know, like, death. So it to the Delaware African Student Association, they threw a bunch of events. And if you're African, you don't have to be Africa. But if you are, they have a bunch of events. If you guys wanna attend that pretty fun. I'm also c p a. B throws a bunch of events towards the minority community, which is pretty final, awesome way to meet people and just get great connections. Um, so throughout this joint, I'ma tell you guys a little bit about me and my experience. I u d And to show you like on campus, Resource is some type of events and places to hit up. That's pretty dope. Um, so despair with me and I'll show you about two cool videos and stuff like that and, uh, stay too. So the next life I'm going to take you is worth library, also known as Club Horace, which is our four story library, where he was from a lot of their time studying acting out textbooks, fronting books, using computers, talking that way. So the first war of the library is where a lot of study rooms are located. There is a little cafe in the front, and it's where the welcome desk is and the help centers. So if you have any questions about finding a book, you can stop by the first floor and ask him to help you find it or point you in the right direction about anything in the library. So next off, we're gonna head downstairs where the multimedia center is located. So this is the basement of the library where the Student Multimedia Center is located. So, as you can see here, there's a bunch of computers to use in these classrooms. There's a color print to hear what you can use to print out posters and things, which is really cool. I know I have a friend who gave her friend to give for her birthday. She got really cool posters made their this's the writing center so students can come here for help with any of your writing. Uh, your personal work or school projects? It's really great. One on one tutoring all for free. So keep heading down the hallway. Here we see students studying. Getting their groove on Library can be a great place to study because there aren't as many distractions. I love going to the library to study on. I like going to the basement because it's not like dead silent, whereas if you head upstairs, it becomes pretty quiet. So let's head upstairs so the library is usually open till about midnight every night, but during finals week it's open twenty four seven, so you can study all night long if you need. Hopefully you won't go, so I made it to the top floor of the library Wolf. That's a lot of stairs, but the top floor is a pretty silent floor. This's not for group work. It's kind of for that in this zone, studying when you really got to get something done. People do come here with their friends, but there's not much talking. People do. Look at you if you make a lot of noise, but it's really great when you haven't examined. You need to get something done that there's a quiet space. Even come Teo and study. Get all of your work done. But, yup, up here, it's just a bunch of desks on DH on the sides. There's a whole bunch of books that you can check out, but a lot of people just come here to study. So next we're going to head back downstairs and take a look at some of the group study rooms, which are super useful. So here are group study rooms, these air great places to come with your friends if you are all in the same class and you, I want to learn together because each room has their own blackboard. In its taken all write on the board together. It's a super good way to study. As you can see, the library's pretty crowded. Now all the tables are filled and all the group study rooms air filled. But the group study rooms are available online, so you can, like, run thumb out for a certain time block if you need them, which is super helpful, especially for exam prep. But there you see the blackboard, all the chairs that kind of vary in size. They're great to use for, like little conferences. I love coming to the group study rooms with my friends to study, but, yeah, this's the Hey, I see I'm here with Marguerite s O. This is Marguerite's room. This is a freshman dorm at the University of Delaware. So this is one of them brand new dorm's. So you can see it's pretty nicely space. A lot of these are double style, so there's two people to a room, and then they have, like, a communal bathroom in the hall to share. But it's a really nice base. The ceilings are super high, which is really nice on. Yeah, every room comes with a wardrobe on the desk and yeah, so let's go take a look at some of the other stuff we have in this residence hall. So some people decorate for St Patrick's. That's really fun. So every single floor has its own little lounge. So this is the floor lounge right here, a great spot to go and study. Every four has own bathroom here, the bathrooms and I'll take you out to the main area. There's some cool things, like a really nice kitchen that has cameras you could like, record yourself cooking. There's a nice, like grand piano if you know how to play piano. Yep. So the main area. Some couches to hang out. Lots of studying space in this. Residents all here's the mail boxes. You could get your packages. So this is the laundry. I'm going to show you so really convenient right here. Sprinkle your launch. Lots of space. It's pretty much the laundry. And I think what to say about that. Uh, then we have the kitchen. Second. So this is the kitchen, Really? There's like the overhead around the record too. The screen's over there. Have you cooked here before? Yes. No, They passed. Sounds really good. So this is the kitchen. What? And then we have a bunch of little cubicles to go and study, which is really nice studying. Teo. This is like the main lounge or there's a piano. Yeah, that's about it. So this is a typical freshman dorm at the University Everybody was here to talk to you about what the game day experience is like and what it's like being a student athlete here at the University of Delaware. So first off will talk about game day. Game day is a big deal here. We have so many different sports teams. We have our football team or basketball team, the rowing team, which I'm a part of soccer teams across field, talking tennis and the list goes on. So here you D. Everybody is super proud to believe, be a blue head and we really like to show that. So here I met on the rule Oh stadium, where the field hockey team plays, and these fans are all filled with a lot of cheering fans. Every single game, people get all dressed up wearing their blue and gold. People all bring their friends, and it's a really great experience. The school also likes to put on different tailgate, so oftentimes will rent out things like bouncy castles and give us lots of free food. And it's a really great time on the topic of free stuff. They always like to give us free stuff in the Games like scars had shirts. It's really cool, but, yeah, it's really is such a great day. Um, I love game day, and they really make a big deal about it. Um, we have this thing every Friday before a game where the cheerleaders will go around campus, pumping everybody up. We have our two mascots, you D and Baby Blue, which are two little blue hens, and they're at every game really getting people excited. And, uh, fun. Fact, we have a little bucket list at you, D And if you get a picture with one of the two mascots, that's one thing you can check off the bucket list. So next I'll talk about what it's like being a student athlete here, which is probably like, my favorite thing about being a blue hand. It's so great. So not only do I have like over fifty teammates, which are all my best friends, but I also have this bigger network of all the student athletes here, and we can really relate to things on the lot different levels. We have a bunch of different like student athlete only events which are really fun. Really great toe know all these other people I'm just to be part of something bigger, and it's cool. If it makes you a leader on campus as a student athlete and it really makes you stand out, it's something so great to be a part of, and being part of rowing like is so amazing. I've been rowing through high school and now in college, and it's like, I love it just so much. I can't describe it, But growing is awesome sports here. Awesome. And there's something for everybody. If you're not into a division one sport like we are, there's clubs, sports, intramural sports. So it's It's so fun for intramural sports. There's everything from Tennis Teo like Mario kart racing. So even if sports aren't your things, there's there's lots of fun things to dio with, the sports here on campus. But, yeah, our facilities here are really fantastic, as you can see it, says Delaware blue hands. Over there on DH. We have all different fields. We have multiple tennis courts. We have our football stadium, lots of different things. Unfortunately, they're locked because it's the middle of the day, so I can't show you them. But I'm here at the field hockey field and this would be filled with cheering fans all in the spirit of being a blue head. So that's it. Hey, guys, I'm here on the green, also known as the North green. But everybody just calls it the green. So, out here, if it was maybe twenty degrees warmer, he'd see tons of students just hanging out, having a good time studying, having dinner picnicking. And I know you will never find me in the library once it reaches seventy degrees. Because I will do all my studying out here. Absolutely loved the green, just as everybody else does. It was a huge reason why I came to you, D cause the campus is just so beautiful. Um, one fun thing that you'll find on the green our puppies. So we have a couple of organizations on campus that help raise puppies for the seeing eye on. You'll always find them on the green and Yoo hee Khun, stop and pet them, and they're super adorable. You'll also find the puppies in your classes sometimes, which is really close. But yeah, this is a green. It's just a little chilly. That's why there's no more people out there be people. Arm slack lining between the trees are anything and everything. There's this one club that has those light savers like in Star Wars who do that at night juggling There's a juggling club would be juggling on the green. But, yeah, this is the green. My favorite part on the campus CIA. Hi, everybody. My name is Lily, and I'm super excited to give you a tour of the University of Delaware. So behind me is the blue hand statue. Not that many people know about it. It's a little secret under the North campus bridge, but we at the University of Delaware are all blue hands. That's our famous mascot.
