Hello There

So I'm outside of Watson Library right now, and it is one of two libraries that we have here on campus, and I'm gonna show you guys around a little bit. So this is the first four that you walk into when you goto Watson, It's called technically, the third floor. But this is my favorite part about Watson. This is, uh, stacks, and this is also on third form and take it back here and during finals week. I liked to come here a lot, hide back in here and get work done. It's a really cool head in place, like with these desks. See, they're pretty fun. And then this is the fourth floor of Watson. So it's a pretty big open area you can see. So that was Watson Library. So the way I think of it is like Watson is the library you go to when you really have to focus and sit down and get a lot of work done in and shoots is more of the type of library that you can go to with your friends, One of the hidden gems here on campus is McLane's market now fun fact about this place that actually used to be the old K you bookstore. McLane's market is pretty much a place for students come to hang out, eat. There's a lot of great foods, such as like avocado toes and, yeah, it's like, honestly, a super nice hipster place that I really enjoy. So that looks like when you first walk in. The decor in here is like super nice. Also fun fact. They also do custom cakes here. I also have a wide variety of pastries, such as carrot muffin one's better owns, so even has four cakes in the deserts. They have little math around my God. All these cupcakes, he claims, is on the west side of this, and you'll see like a wide variety of people here, whether they're doing a study sessions or even family. See, it's super busy right now, but I just got my food, and I got avocados to strike feta and Roma tomatoes on it right in front of me. They have espresso and our area, so if you need any coffee or anything to drink, they have it in here as well. Another cool thing about this place is there is a second war, so not only is there I'm currently in beauty call, which is like the big lecture hall here at K you. There's an auditorium that holds a thousand people, and then there's also two auditoriums hold five hundred people, so it's a pretty big area to the side with the moment. What I like about beauty is there so many places set. So if you're in between classes or waiting for another cross to get out to go into your classroom, you can sit and get some homework done little ways. Further, there's this common area out in between with three auditoriums. And then if you keep walking, there's another mean area and it overlooks J. R. So I had a class here and beauty call my freshman year, and it was in one of the five hundred people auditoriums. And at first it was kind of intimidating, honestly. But I ended up on the first day of class. I sat next to a girl because there was an open seat, and now we are actually best friends. Her name is Molly and were ruins now. So it's kind of intimidating at first thinking of being in such a big auditorium with so many people, but you can actually in that meeting a lot of great This is South Dining Commons, which is one of the dining halls but connects with Oliver's Hall and Downs Hall. Here's what the inside of a South Commons dining looks like. It's pretty empty right now, since most people are in that class, but there's a bunch of places to sit. And there's like a buffet style type some of them the options. Also, they have possible and pizza here. There's a wide variety of food options here in the dining hall that caters to whatever type you are. They do. You take into account that some people are vegetarian, vegan and other food dietary restrictions. It's like there's some fruit, some breakfast sandwiches, toe foo some hard. Both eggs are bonds of being slot of healthy food choice options, which I think is really important. Also on the wall here. This is a picture of what inside Allen Fieldhouse looks like as what I told you guys before earlier. Hey, you is really big on Hi, everyone. My name's Emma Starks.

So they're going to show us around their dorm room. Today we live himself. I was on Daisy Hill, which is where a lot of the dorms are located there, about seven up here. And so we live itself. And so start off. Here's our bathroom. It's too the left of our front door. We each have like two cubbies, shower all the regular amenities and then outside are sick is outside, which is hopeful. So one person's in there. We can all. It's really convenience that people need to wash dishes or anything. They can still use the restroom while we're doing things out here. This is our closets. Over here, we have actually more space than you would think, especially with the dresser's. It's not that difficult to fit all of your clothes, especially if you live close to home because you could bring in winter clothes and then sprayed close to paying on the time of year.

We could look out the window, the sun sets over here, which is really nice. We have lots of space to put our books and plenty of space to work. And then I really wanted a couch in our dorm. It's been really convenient. I use it every day. And so I love having friends over. They can hang out over here. We all get Tau share this base together. My bet is also lofted because we wanted more space in our dorm room on DH. Then I just like to have photos up there of my friends and just family.

You spot Teo Teo on and there's a superstition that you can on ly walk through it. If it's your graduation day and you're walking down Teo, go to graduation. So the superstition station is that if you walk through it before you're graduating, then you won't graduate on time, So some people risk it. Some people don't. But this is it. It's just on a hill and overlooks, uh, to the football stadium. So this is K use football stadium. Oh, this is a little area by the camp Aneel. Uh, I mean, right now they're snow. But when it's sunny and nice outside, people like to put there a mix up between the trees or have picnics and do homework over here. So it's a really fun spot and so in relation that that's full of art over there. So it's really close by on campus, and it's just a fun place to go hang out.
