Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Then I ended up coming to kill you to do a formal tour My junior year of high school. I was like, Okay, know, Like this is where I'm supposed to be, so no, uh and then could you describe to us like this student body or like, the stereotypes here? Uh, yeah. So I think the, um, student body K used really unique because can you really celebrates like differences. That's something that set out a lot about K you and just like the community in general. So I really like that about K. You and I think everyone, like, has their thing. So I think that's really something special about you. Then could you also describe, um, like your major and like your school workload and just kind of like the academics here at K you? Yeah. Um, but then I decided last year of my spring semester to go in education. So that's what this year's looked like after, like, getting into the program and stuff. So I would say, my workload, um, my freshman year was a lot lighter than I thought it was gonna be. Then this year, it's been a lot heavier, but nothing like Tio um, crazy. I have a lot of like group projects and stuff and like essays and tests. I like the opportunity to get to like like going campus and, like, meet up with people in my classes and stuff to work on stuff together or do stuff like that in the days and tests like, they're like, Okay, they're like, challenging and challenge me a lot and like my growth of learning, you know? So I I like like the work that I have to dio. I think it's reasonable and it's not like like, too much or anything. So that's really cool, something that stands out a lot about the school of bed because it's a lot of, like, hands on type of work. It's just like the community, um, and just like this spirit that, like his felt here at K you, I'd say that a kind is, um I don't know, maybe like thinking about like, my fresh from near. It's a lot different this year, like, because I'm not living in a dorm, but my freshman year, I feel like the freshmen are kind of like outsiders in a sense and a lot of things with you. You kind of just come in, like, expected to know everything. Call it like, I don't know, you know, it's just a whole new world. I don't know about any other, um, cons, a lot of pros, so there's so many areas like to get involved, And I think a you does a good job, but like informing us of those things and, um, I don't know, I think the university like us, they send, like, weekly newsletters and stuff with eye things happening in Lawrence or in the community. I thought it was a good way last year to know, like, what's going on in Lawrence. I think there's a lot of, like, different variations that you could do, and they're like, approach to things, But I think overall, it's pretty great how everything. Um, and then what defines? Okay, you were like, Differentiate, Teo, you think from other campuses. So I visited some quite a few schools, like out of state and a lot of We're really great, I think. Hey, you stood out, um, a lot to me because of just the layout of the campus and how, like, unique it wass. It was just really different than a lot of the other campuses. I scene, Um, and like overall, I could just, like, visualize myself, like walking like down Jayhawk Boulevard, you know, to get to class like walking back to my dorm are like, wherever. Um I think having campus having it be, like, so spread out is really unique and everything, And it just kind of makes it more, um, less of like, Well, it kind of does feel like a bubble in a sense, but because there's so much going on all the time and like people going from one place to another, like you're always running into people on campus, even though it's massive, you know? But like, once you start getting to meet people and stuff, you cross past people all the time. I really just like the layout of the campus and everything, and that set out a lot because a lot of other schools were like, smaller or they're like two big. Yeah, and it would just be overwhelming, but can't use kind of, like in the middle, like the sweet spot of like, I don't know what I mean. Yeah, like you can still know a lot of people, but there's still so many people you don't know. Well, my senior year I was very like, content and, like, happy with where I wass. So it was hard for me to think about coming to college, and I was nervous about it. Looking back and like thinking of the past like year and a half of being here and everything that's come out of it, it's been amazing. So I think I would just tell my seaming yourself, like there's nothingto be afraid of and like these years in college are like like, beneficial toe, like, helpless, like, learn and grow as a person. So looking back at what I might like terrified self my senior year, I would just say like, It'll be OK. Yeah, like especially any change like that is, like, so hard. Then once you get freshman Year's weird at first, but then once you kind of get into the swing of things and it's way better than you can expect, I feel like Yeah, it's so true once. I don't know, I think coming into sophomore year's a lot easier because sophomore year, I was, like, so excited and pumped. Then freshman year, it was just nerve wracking because it was all new and like, it takes a lot of like adjusting. Then once you get through it, you're like, Okay, like, this is our son, you know? I do yourself well, sweet.
