The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Anyone? If you need to take a biology course or chemistry course, this is going to be your building. Primarily, it's really cool because has really nice screen there that shows what some of the labs look like. For research, and then it will also have plant areas where you can kind of study. So if you're ever in this building and have some ofthe time, they're really nice areas to study or take a snack break like this. If you ever have a chemistry lab, this is kind of a preview of what it might look like thing. If you ever need a break, you could even write out these rooms. So if your science major, um, you'll be required to take some introductory labs for chemistry and biology. Then once you go up to more the top tier like level four hundred five hundred classes, they'll get more specialized. Most of these air in the Jacob Science Building here and then some of them are also in the Tunnel Morgan building, which is right across the street. So trance buildings are very close to each other, and it's really convenient. Cut through a path if you ever have to go from the dining halls. If you ever have some extra time on your hands, these tables are really convenient that you could just kind of hang out. So I just wanted to clear five a couple things about the Jacob Science Building. So this building has impacted me a lot because being a science major, a lot of the science classes are in the Jacob Science Building. Um, and I just kind of wanted a book about the classroom experience. So most of my classes in the Jazz B R lecture based, um so there are a lot of people in there. It's usually an introductory biology or chemistry course. So with these big lectures, um, some of the most of the topics I do understand, but for the son that I don't you have a scheduled in recitation, which is where you go to a smaller setting with a smaller amount of students and won t a or teacher teacher's assistant. That's kind of where you go over the topics and make sure that you really understand everything. So if need be, you can go to your professor's office hours. I just kind of figure everything out in you're scheduled recitation time, which usually meets either once or twice a week. Being a biology major and also having to minors is a lot of work. I'm not going to tell you guys that it's really easy is a breeze. It is a lot of work, but I think it's really nice to have a balance between activities so extracurricular things, um, hanging out with your friends, literally. Like if it gets to the point where your schedule is so crowded that you have to schedule in eating, take shower like it's happened to me before during some weeks like midterms. You guys can do it like I am up studying late tonight, but at the same time, it's totally worth that. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel, what you're setting for each exam for each quiz, any papers that you have any projects at all? Um, it's not a piece of cake, but there are also some really nice points in your classes where you kind of have a down period right after an exam. For me, it's worked out to where a lot of my classes have kind of lined up exams if they're similar. So last semester I had my A biology exams on Tuesdays and then my chemistry exams on Wednesdays. So even though they were back to back, it was kind of nice because the classes would line up. So I would have free periods of time on the same weeks and then hard core study weeks for exams, but for the most part, it all kind of flows together. Um, if you have a challenging major, but also take enough classes that it's going to challenge you because you'll be thankful for taking those later.
