Hey, guys. So I will say, as a continuation to the tour, um, that I've actually knew my roommate before I got here. I'm so we realized one day that we both wanted to go to Georgia after applying, and so we decided to room together. But there's actually, for those who don't know they were searching for, you know, they're roommate. There's a program called Dog, the doghouse that usually uses for housing. So that way it's almost like a tinder profile. You give your age, you know, you're like your interest, your major and things that you like in a dorm, the temperature you like for your room, the time you want to study which study environments or best for you, so on and so forth as faras, all of your living environment. And so it's a little intimidating. Before my roommate and I decided to room together, we went on the search, you know, to see. Maybe if there's someone else who we wanted to meet, you know, Tio room together and it was really intimidating to go on there, and people will list their social media and you'd try to reach out to them and contact them. Some people don't reply, and some people are kind of eager, and then you talk to them and you're like, Oh, this isn't really you know, my idea of a roommate. So roommate finding can be very, very, very crazy if you don't know who you're looking for. But my best advice to that is to stay true to yourself. If you're a messy person, don't say that you're needed on the rooming assignment on those types of things state who you are rather than who you'd like to be. So don't say I like my stuff mostly need almost pristine, if you know that after week to your room gets messy. Me, um, and also as faras dorm necessities I would just go for For me, I'm a very no matter simplistic person. I go with what I need to live with so I don't have a food time. I don't have a TV and don't have a fridge. Those air things fridge at the dining hall. I don't eat out a lot because that's a waste of money and you're paying two thousand dollars for a mil plan. So you want to make sure you get your money's worth, so I don't need a fridge. And as far as TV goes, it wasn't worth the sacrifice to me to get one. I use my iPad for Netflix or a laptop out for memos. He or a foot on that something If you want a house guest. Yeah, you bring that. You know, if you wanna have a lot of company, I'm kind of introverted. I keep to myself. Actually, I don't. I just know when I'm at my dorm, it's usually just me, me and my roommate. Of course, when he's there, but for me, I wouldn't try to do anything all fancy. There are some people who would love you not to decorate their room. But for me, most of what's here is what came here for Georgia. I brought my clothes, my books, the necessities that I needed from home. And I say, necessities, You know, my toiletries, my deodorant, SMI, you know, toothbrush and things like that. And whatever else you would like to bring, there's nothing extra that you necessarily need to bring unless you want to decorate things or you want that homey feeling. So you bring a rug in my dorm have carpet. Some of the other freshman high risers don't. So they do bring drugs and sometimes in a community bathroom setting you need well, you would like to bring a kind of carrier where you can hold all of your shampoos and your soap and you're washed towel and things like that. So it all depends on what you're staying as far as your dorm necessities for that. But for me, I'm here very simplistic life. Although I have way too much stuff, but I brought everything that I use at home every day, and I just kind of transported here with me. Rhea behind me is called the tape. It's right in between the Miller Learning Center and the M L. C. And it's a place where a bunch of organizations come to try to get students to join hand out flyers and tell you what they're all about. So I'm gonna go talk to someone. So I see you're here advertising for job camp. What is it? Dog Camp is an extended orientation program for incoming freshmen, and we're out here recruiting a new staff for D. C nineteen.

So i'ma show you a little bit of the tele gated community here. This is right outside, right outside my door, guys. A party. Great. But it's george the entire I'm going to take you guys on a quick tour of the biggest dining, the dining hall common. So this is where. You have this fancy eye scanner? Some of the other one UTA house for me, right? Kennesaw State when we have won. So for huge dining homes, they all have, like, five different. I think Colin is the biggest one on the best part about orientation is they give you a meal ticket to get to go dining halls and get a meal for free. Right? A little more of the seating Guess where we are. You guys just guess i called. This is where your house? All english classes on campus. All right, now i'm currently in english eleven o one. So i'm here for my twelve twenty new class, mr rather big haul those air. Most office is over there, and here is the main entrance. There you go. Very grand eels. And it also was pretty nice about myself, dissipated into perspective. Sanford stadium is right. So this is at the heart of north campus, and i'm taking you guys. So, uh, this is my english eleven o one class. It's a bunch of freshmen, but this is what a classes like. It's pretty small. Like there's, like, twenty people in here. This is chase. Thank you. Yeah, it is. You want to tell them a little bit about it? Cool. What do you guys have to say about georgia? Like the classes? Like, how many lectures do you have? Like, regular classes or whatever. Anything way too many. Seventeen credit hours. A mistake, kids think with fifteen shoes. Yeah. So our teacher, mr camp, has like, office hours. I like eleven, but they're super hard to get to agreed. Agree. And there is mr kao, way to the camera. Yeah. Hey, i'm good. Early twentieth century of the nineteenth century when he's long winded sentence. We're very masculine or london, you know, read jefferson's letters. Sometimes you're like, just stop the sentence now when? Stop right now. So our concept of it's a very twenty century concept. Jeffrey the lights. Yeah, i was kind of just looking over, like, yeah, going off there. Really away. The reason why the way this like structure. No, i don't know. It's just like the way i read it, i guess, but it sounds like yeah boarding. And action. So tell us who you are. I'm Kyra. Hi. I'm an r A here on campuses in my second year as an r a. And Rutherford. And where Yvonne is, he's living. She's mine. I am is all right. I'm on the second floor with Avon, and I'm enjoying my time here, So yeah, tell us a little bit about the academic climate here. Um, from my point of view, as a sociology major and a sport management miner, I've loved that different academic settings from lecture hall, two smaller classrooms to teachers who are hands on and who have been in the industry who have come back to teach us. So I love that about that academic sphere. But those teachers are also pouring in tow us can, asking us and making the students get involved, which is what I live for. I love hands on activities. So tell us why you chose you, Diego. Um, you j was a huge, prestigious deal back where I'm from in Perry and I don't really do much resource into Bento my senior year and I realized how big of a community Yuji actually is. Apart from Athens, Yuda is its own separate entity, which I love. I love the community body aspect. I love how there's so many different organizations that Kiss could get involved with and how they intertwined together. Love that. And I also love academics. The teachers that they bring in are my absolute favorite. I could have asked for better professions, and I appreciate you Jai for doing that. So I think that kind of told us one of your favorite things about Georgia. Now give me one of the, like, most nitty gritty, least favorite things on campus. If it I don't really have a least favorite, they're all great thing. The only bad thing is the distance. Everything is just a walking distance. We just can't tell you need a bike and invest in a bike or use a bird, which they have on campus. Now, the motorized scooters or the buses? The buses. Great. Yeah, but East Campus to North Campus is a correct. So sociology, major and score management major everywhere. But I mean, I'm getting exercising, so I love it. So just to step off you. Jia's North Campus is downtown Athens. Behind me is the classic center. It holds an ice skating rink. It always holds career fairs, formals a lot of events. And then the rest of downtown is a central part of U G a life. So we're going to take a look at it. So as you can see, downtown is filled with plenty shot in restaurants. Marjorie and I actually went to retire way to get our game day outfit and, wow, she's wearing it right now, looking good, looking good. And we're about to go to one of the many Bulldog stores to get me sicker. Just like market. Downtown is always a center of activity, but right now, since it is homecoming weekend, it's game day. It is super talk, but it's way Always go Teo and you see the grill over there, and I usually take a stroll through North Campus. You can see our beautiful art if you look straight that way, Actually meeting at the Grill after be offering last year. Okay, so it's Margaret and I were on our way to dinner. We came across Georgia. This is one of the staples of downtown Athens. They host musicians from basically every genre, definitely a few concerts there myself, and they're always fantastic. They have a rooftop seating area. It's a great place to go and enjoy your friends. But it's also a great place to bring Mom or Dad to come into town. So we're about to grab a seat in one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Aziz. I know that everyone's favorite restaurant, but mine because it is obviously a great place to watch the game. And I feel like all the food is fantastic. Other There's definitely probably Cem more well known culture downtown Sleep on it, Jim. That engine. I pray that this is a basketball gym big. So I'm gonna walk the track for a bit. That's class here. I have a of the but for again. And they just renovated the track, so it's all brand new. Price of this Hayes and ran, it is huge. This is the big weight room. Here's the They're always playing really loud rap music. They have almost all the same equipment. It's a little smaller, a little more private. Not as intimidating. Not as loud still. This is one of the big personal training studios. They offer private sessions here. Men, This is cycling room. I decided to take a cycling class over the summer. She's not smart because they're too our classes. It's actually a lot harder than I expected. But it was stuff phone and with P can have a free group fitness class. They also offered free classes for the first week, first or second week of school. So you could try any of the dancer bodywork outclasses group fitness classes for free. Is it another one of those personal training? This one is more geared towards athlete. The special of sports. So this isn't really good for you. Three? Yes. Huge back. Huge you are. Nobody in there, but there's usually people taking up almost every way. So behind me is a second basketball court, and I'm guessing these it mostly for volleyball. The net set up in here, but there is nobody using it right now. Behind me and the Rach Law are four racquetball courts. They're being used. They talk about a long time, not good at it. All right, So the building you see behind me is Yoo Ji a's, a main library. It is seven floors of learning excellence, and it's extra poppin right now because midterms are this week. So we're going to take a look inside. We're going to check out the coffee shop. We're going to check out the different levels of silence on each floor. So sum of parts of the tour going to be a little quieter than others, but and then we're going to go to up to the seventh floor and bothersome of my friends. So let's go. So the library has a lot of places to study and a lot of books. So I'm just going to show you a few of my favorite places to go as promised Coffee shop inside Main Library. Actually a new installation that we're all very excited about. It's what goes better with study, coffee and fresh. So actually, one of the best places to start out is located easily right on the first floor. As you can see, there's just a lot of open space. You got a lot of options, a lot of opportunities to get that studying done. We've caught my friends here. Emery, Antalya, mid hard core studying and I just want to ask you guys, what is your favorite part about studying in the main library? There's usually more open space than anywhere else on campus. Nana's close it down down. Person eats the fourth floor, has a lot of dry erase boards for writing out solutions and stuff. Sounds fantastic. All right, so we're headed into the fourth floor, which, just like Italian, is my favorite area to study. As she mentioned, there are plenty of whiteboards to keep track of what you're doing and plenty of interesting seating to keep yourself comfortable. So this is a quieter portion of the video because we are on the seventh floor. Elaine. It is a very silent section, probably C from the atmosphere, but we are getting a lot done. Margaret, do you feel like you got a lot of studying done today? I feel like I accomplished a good amount of studying. Do you feel olive library experience? Studying was amplified by the fact that you were in Yuji a's main library. Yes. No. Yeah. The glasses make me more intelligent. Okay? Yes, as well. It's just being in this library, surrounded by books. You know, Art studio. The guy's this's cookie night, say aye. So I'm actually in the bottom floor of my dorm with Miss Shayera. What's Who? Let's get a little focus there. There we go. Share what's on Cooper right there. No. Okay. Cuba is a little camera shy, but she's actually the director of a program, A man called Franklin Residential College. And these air also members camera the DEA, and so is Zoe. And Great. I'm so sorry We don't talk that much, but this is a pretty night. It happens on Sundays at six. It happens that Sundays at six. On it. It's just kind of like a social involvement way. Just talk. And we just, like, do different things. Mostly. Just time and socializing. Eat cookies. So this is I spin some of my Sundays, usually every Sunday. So what do you call it? Yeah, signing off by.
