The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I'm a senior mechanical engineering major here at University Maryland from Annapolis, Maryland. Maryland was my state schools sort of close to home, very good school close to home. How would you describe the student body at Maryland? Like, what's one of the people like here? Man's got a little everything's very diverse. Something that I learned when I was going through the application and school process was that it's very easy to make a big school feel smaller resident of smaller school field. So would you say there's like a good work social life balance? Or what is that like? I think Marilyn's got a pretty prestigious reputation, and students really tried to embody that. A lot of effort into their work, a lot of really innovative ideas and created to come out of mountain people like the guy who found it under Armour era. The guy who created Muppets are someone notable on. I would also say it's a pretty balanced, like social life forthe SW, Academics like you, Everything you want here. So what do we do in terms of social life? For the options, there's a lot of bars that you could go to. Greek life is always an option, and a lot of people like to have parties, off campus, apartments and sweets and that kind of things. What would you say your major and your workload is like since I do mechanical engineering, it's pretty intense, Major, like lots of different glasses, definite lots of studying and definitely go to class and pay attention. It's big schools that everything you do would want any club, right? Like clubs. Would you say we have a way with the first look fair, which is like a day each year where all the clubs and all the organizations come out mall, which is like a big central place on campus, and they just invite you to join their club. There's, like over three hundred different clubs in organization. There's like there's a club for any hobby. You have any political affiliation, religion? I mean, seriously, there's anything, literally anything you can think of anyone on his team. If there isn't one, you'd just get three friends and a teacher and you make your own. Going along with the big campus is big classes, which is, I guess it's a bad thing. You know, I really recommend going to office hours getting today, professor. Because in a class of one hundred peoples, you know very easy just to be the name of the great sheet. Have you ever been tough? No. What advice would you give your senior self for the college application process? I would definitely advise my old self to start applying earlier than I did. The other thing is, make sure you visit the schools and when you do, try and not just go on like a organized tour, but also talk to the students just walking by. You have a friend at a school, maybe go visit them for a night like really get a sense of the culture and on the campus rather than just going on these tours and hearing like figures and statistics. Really, you want to go where you're gonna fit in the best, So talking to the students is one of the best of us, too.
