The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I just wanted to go over Kind of what the classrooms air like I know I showed you guys what they're physically like, but kind of the atmosphere. I wanted to elaborate a bit more on, so all the professors are really kind. They genuinely care if you're doing while how you're doing in the class. Sometimes when you have the big lecture classes for introductory courses, it could be a little bit difficult to see that they actually care. They dio and they hold these hours during the day where you could stop by any time, clear up anything that you might have misunderstandings about in their office hours, and so those who will be posted on the syllabus. So during the first week of school, you'll get a syllabus for each class. So normally there are pretty big lectures with our classes, but the more specific you get to the type of class that you want to take, the smaller the class will get. So with that comes Maura discussion based lectures to your professor might have a topic that they want to discuss with everyone. So the lecture about it and then there will be a discussion point. I think that there's a pretty good balance between just lecturing, like sitting there and listening and learning and taking notes and then also doing some group work and then kind of having more interactive classic. The general rule of thumb is that the smaller the classroom is, the more interactive and personalize later on, you're probably going to need some letters of recommendation or anything from a past professor. So a good way to kind of get on their good side, if you would consider it. That is to go to their office hours if you have, even if you understand it, but just kind of wanted to, like, let them know who you are and, like, be able to recognize you face and stuff like that. Um, feel free to go into their office hours, have a conversation with them because they're actually really cool people there. That's a great way on how to establish a good relationship with professors is to show up. I would say all the professors that I thought have been absolutely phenomenal with teaching and also just being a really nice person.
