The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I'm a freshman or I just finished my freshman year. Plus it means I get to live at home and not pay for campus housing, at least for the time being. I'm like, I'm lucky to growing up in Louisville and to know the area and have a great school like this in the city. Okay, So what are the kids like here? One of the students, like, you know, we're all kids at heart. Really? How's the people here? Really? I mean, we all refer to other students is kids Anyway, it happens, but people here, like they're really friendly. Subsets of students like you got the engineering kids and you get the business kids, students, whatever way, got all kinds of people in frats and sororities in general regardless of what program someone's in I've always found that there's a lot of really, since he said you were a physics major. How's the workload here? Um, the workload for the school probably depends on program, but as a physics major who's also pursuing the math minor, I have a lot of work. Um, math and physics classes sign a lot of homework, at least a fair bit. For my 1st 2 semesters, the math and physics classes were pretty easy, so I didn't get much there. What are some pros and cons about the University of Louisville? Well, let's see. That's a big plus for someone looking to go to go here for an undergraduate degree. Because at least personally, I kind of feel like you don't gotta go to m I t your heart for your undergrad. I'm gonna be pursuing higher education anyway, so I figured, Hey, let's go somewhere I can afford Oh, yeah. What do you hate about this place? Uh, I hate this thing's a really harsh word. What's up? What grind your gears at this university? Um, well, for me, because I don't want to pay for parking, I kind of have to get a bit of a walk to get from my car here. It's also always under construction, but that's a great thing, Thio, because we're updating our campus. That also means that some areas might be a little closed, for example, of the library is currently going through renovations. Third floor is being boarded up stuff, but there's other places to study. Right across the quad, he got the Bab the Academic building and my favorite for the library before four before floor. That's not noisy over there because the quietest. As of now in the summertime, when we're going through updates, quiet. What makes you also different level has a pretty unique student culture. Got a lot of we get a lot of stuff between our frats and sororities and their events there are a lot of events on campus. There is also some interesting little, I guess, quirks about the culture here, like you're not supposed to step on the cardinal logos. So there is a lot a lot of hype surrounding that President Nearly Venda Pootie, Madam President. Events here were probably the most like LGBT Q plus friendly school in Kentucky. What's the advice you can give to your high school scene yourself? What I would give to myself at least, and any seniors watching this video probably tell them to take his many AP classes as they can, as well as dual credit courses. Make sure you pass those AP exams, you know, for some men and get a two on the test. I think I think three is the cut off for getting credit. If you come in with a lot of credit like that basically knocks off a lot of classes that you'd have to take early on. It's just because of a P classes that came in with and because I came in with, like, 30 plus hours of credit basically started as a sophomore. So I'm looking to graduate at least a year early. Anything else you would like to say to the viewers? We're gonna really hold that L up? Yes. Thank you for taking the time to sit through this interview, and we have a lot of fun doing into because this library is just breathing. It's a very quiet and great and inviting place to study. Well, as the tour guides will tell you, first floor is loud anyway.
