So, guys, I'm going to start with the bathroom. I, uh we do have the sink and actually shower. They do come every Thursday to clean it. Um, this is our kitchen. We do have a full sized fridge. Uhm sync and stove. And then I'll feature My wonderful remains artwork appeared. Um, this will be my suitemates room. This is their door. Um, I'll explain this sticky notes later, but this is how they're to set up. Um, they have their bed side by side on DH. Then we all get the same basic closet if you live in baby um, which is where most I students live and every person in the room get to death and everybody on the outside, he gets a desk as well so this would be my suitemates test. And this one is my desk. So the people, the two people that don't get a desk inside the room we'll have a desk out here. This would be my room and my roommates again. I will explain the sticky notes. Oh, later. Um, this would be our closet, um, base and stuff like that. This would be her bed and her, um, desk. And this would be my bed. And obviously, we kind of coordinated with everything to have patient all around the room. I actually love my roommate again. Hi, guys. So you do get a basic narra and ours got lucky, so we kind of had to mirrors, But usually you don't. That's why my my suite mates have a, um, stand up there. So guys, again, that is my dorm. It is. Apartments thou So you do have a kitchen bathroom on dure rooms, all in the same place? Communal bathrooms would be up end of the hall. Um I do love. My remains were randomly match, and at first I was very, very, very nervous because I am a freshman. All my roommates are sophomores, but honestly, they're an amazing people. I'm not just saying that for this video. I do truly love them and have built so many great bonds with them. Unfortunately, they're not here right now. I was kind of hoping they were, but hopefully you would meet that other videos there. Honestly, Great. Um, basically living in a dorm is amazing. It does have its downfall. The fact that we do have to share a bathroom. Um, it is kind of small. You do have to share a room if you're anything like me. I've had my room, my own room. My entire lifestyle was kind of different. But I do love my roommate and we get along very, very well. We do go on roommate of, like, social event itself about Well, like eating dinner together or we'll all just cooked dinner here. Um, hopefully you get as lucky as me getting a roommate. I have heard some stories where they do not like their remains. Um, you can always get a switch if it's that big of a deal. But hopefully you are blessed with a great roommate such some uni were in our calm for a lecture right now and I guess to start off with I'll just go over kind of lecture. Format it you have so computer science lectures there typically discussion and let your based. And then there's a nineteen to one student faculty ratio, and professors are generally pretty easy to approach you. What do you think about professors here? No, See a professor or something disorganized? True, But I don't think personally Don't matter if I don't any lecture starlet is good security. I mean, it's hard to pay attention in class honestly, but you could get a lot of online help. Everyone here is pretty much self taught and then office hours are very flexible. And professors like if you pick the right ones, they're generally pretty approachable. And I mean, if you go to their office hours a few times, you'LL be able to get recommendations from them and they'LL be able to recognize you. So yeah, that's the general consensus. I'm gonna show the classroom little bit because this is typically where computer science lectures take place. Carlson. So it's a pretty big room back pretty big. Then I'm going to show the front. So here's the front of our little ten. You can see there's a professor right now helping a couple of students, and then it has a lot of big screens. It makes it really easy for students to like, see what's going on and taking notes and their other friends. Also in class with me, James and Amanda. I've been interviewing. Okay, And that's typically how computer science lectures go Room three oh nine, which is one of the main rooms for office hours here, too. My friends, they're doing an exercise for us. There's John. And then there's another one. My friends doing something bugging over there with Mark Sellers. And here's your office hours going and yeah, that's one of the following shadowing the great Sean Gone long in his discussion section today. Uh, here's some of his students. No and no, I'm sorry. Don't worry about it. Um, I don't know what those are. I think it's decoration. And then here's some chalkboards for John to do some amazing problem solving on. And when you go up there, there is, um, a screen that will come down, which you can connect your laptop to and show all of your code and slides on. So, yeah, that's a bit of a room tour. And I would take some clips of the great John Long teaching today. He is connecting Hiss Mac book right now. Okay, So Jonah's connecting his laptop the last that wear bringing the screen down so that he can show his students some code and coding problems and slides teach efficiently as the great computer scientist that he is, you know, as a Facebook software, It's in here. Uh, okay, so we're gonna go to come for tea. This is my friend Kiki. Here's how Chan. So here's the inside of comfort. E. There's the meal menus, not menu drink, menu cheese, and then tables. And all the people study here, too. And my friend Kiki and there's hell. Okay, So here's what we got. I got, um, the winter melons, He with Boba and herbal jelly. And then I also got a side order of oyster mushrooms just for a little snack. And then what did you get? I know what you're going through with it. Really? Why not?

Unfortunately, I just want to make a quick video on gains. My life gets culture so against it is very oriented around It's college. It's college students. And so, in terms of where to eat there, a lot of cafes. Here we have Boba tea cafes. We have, um, Asian fusion cafes, French cafes and then turns of where to shop way have one main shopping mall, and then we have a couple of shopping centers. And then we are only a few hours away from major shopping centres in Florida and general, such as Orlando outlets, Orlando Moss and Augustine outlets. And then and in terms of nightlife in Gainesville, I think the main scene is really the music scene here. James was a pretty good music scene, So if you're into that, you should definitely check out downtown Gainesville. And then if you're really into nightclub bar life scene, there is also. There is also that here in Gainesville, it's just a little bit chaotic and not really my scene. Then turn to how this affects you in school. Like while you're living here, I say it just it makes it really easy to prioritize school place to focus on school just because there isn't really much here to distract you from school. So, yeah, I hope that helps Tommy was my friend. Bobby and I met the resting club this past winter. And Javi, what's your major? Uh, I'm actually a history major. Yeah, University of Florida history.

I'm not gonna make any money as an astronomer, so might as well go engineering still. Airspace Situs. I like it. Okay, So how do you think about what do you think about the academic programs here? Easy. Difficult. It's physically your major. It's basically my major. So far, I've had about five mental breakdown system, Esther, But because of rugby, I get to blow it off by hitting people like it works, as, you know, engineering as well. And also more team. So I'm feeling there yes, of academic life is definitely more difficult. But if you balance it well with the athletics and clubs and design teams we have here, you'll be fine. It's definitely all doable suture. That's true. Yeah. Uh, what what? What else besides academics and run? Were you involved in here? Oh, I do. I'm in our Air Force ROTC.

I believe there's a bunch of ventures here, if you could tell, and it gives you a nice view of the applause of America's over there. I'm gonna show you guys that in a different clip, because one of my friends really likes to be there. And, yeah, and then here's another view of turn. So tree tower and yeah, so my look. So here's a CS building across from it is Marston. That's one of the main libraries. And here's the basement. So just typically where I studied personally, if I come to the library, it's really big. Lots of tables, lots of study rooms here. No. Yeah, that's pretty much it. So, yeah, you could just study here. There's a lot of outlets on DH. There's Kiki and their song, and you could write on these boards using this, like dryer a sports and work out complicated problem. So I'm not supposed to be in here because normally the their study rooms that I reserved but inside the library's you confined study rooms that have whiteboards and a large monitor screen that you can plug your computer into through one of the multitude of cables. In here, you have problems you can charge with. And yeah, you just reserved these private study rooms and you and a group can just privately work without having the disturbances of everyone out there. Not that that is typically a problem. But if you want that option, it is there, so So here's the building. McCarty Hall, eh? There's a B and C, I believe, is the one you're looking for. So when it's busier, library or like exam season than libraries and a lot of other study places are a lot more crowded, so it's actually better to find an empty classroom. So here's an empty classroom. These are the best to study, and during finals week or any exam week, even mid terms, the library's get very crowded, and it's just way better to study in an empty classroom. You have the pull down, um, screens, which you can connect your laptop, too, and you can just see your where got a big screen. You have chalk boards that you can work out complicated problems on. You have outlets over there, empty desks and, yeah, you can just invite a group of friends and all of you can study in here. It's really goddess Pew Hall. I mean, with my friend Mr. In a few minutes, we're gonna project together, and it again is just another situation of it's too busy to go to the library, so it's just better to study in an empty Yeah, So my friend and I found a study room that's feeling one is a high and, yeah, it's very official and it's much better than the library because, like I said during final season, library gets very loud and crowded. And so we found a private room and it has a monitor, Um, a whiteboard. I don't know if we have Margaret's, though, and large table. So we feel very official. My friend Isaiah showed up, and so yeah, Isaiah and feeling are here, and we're going to work on this group project together. Our business plan present ifs, um, currently internal engine looking for an empty classroom study in because, like torture, it gets very busy this time of year. Study of the light. So here's an empty question. My phone. It was on the second floor of Turlington Hall. I actually don't know howto put that screen down anyway. Yeah, empty on. Quite perfect for writing essays and working on complicated. So here's Starling sent the building that I was just in with private study room. Here's my friend Song. We're going to go get ice Now it's time for all you guys to see my room. Here we are. So let's get into it. This side of the room here is mine. And this out of the room is my room mates. So what does a typical dorm come with? It comes with the bed frame and a mattress, and you bring a mattress topper and all your sheets and pillows and all that stuff. Of course, it comes with this desk here, this little dresser drawer thing and then this dresser. Also, of course, closet space and storage above the closet up there. I don't mind your conditioner. Bring your own fridge more closet space and stored on top. Nice TV spot, of course. The roommate's bed, dresser desk and many drawer dresser. This trashcan and this trashcan.

It's sold out now, but you can't get sushi drinks. What? Another food that you can get on with it. Oh, very over school. I don't snacks, snacks, drinks. I block it is our so right here.

God, here's the rights union food for I'm gonna try to be a stabilized as possible. Um, as you can see, a lot of people also study here and a lot of charging stations. So we have quite a few restaurants here that you can lida in between classes and whenever you have time. So over here we have Oh, sea of one days. I personally don't last that often, but options there for you, Papa John's. And we also have crew. Time's over there. The salad bar. That's for people that prefer healthier options. Personally, I think it's a bit over priced. And then there's Panda Express back there. Um, and there's also a Starbucks here. If you need a quick coffee run, break in between classes. Koyo tropical is over here. You have to be careful. Polio in between lunch breaks, though, because it gets really crowded. So, yeah, that is another one of the places that
