I think the coldest that probably gets here say is like sixty degrees, which is great like this. It's January right now, guys, it is January and it is beautiful. So get excited. I'll be taking you on Hey, guys, Welcome back to my channels. I'm back again with another video shocker there. My name is Jeff. It's your first time here, and if not, welcome back. And if you enjoy watching this video, be sure like and subscribe. All right, but let's get on with it. Today we're gonna talk about how to pick your dream college. This is time that you have submitted your early action and 81 decisions are either working on your 82 or regular decisions. And you're probably like going crazy thinking of like which schools you're definitely applying to if you haven't decided yet. But if you haven't decided, you should definitely should get on that. I am here today to help you figure out how to choose College is best for you, because there are so many colleges out there picking the one that specially was really hard, especially since you can't like experience every single one of them. But I'm gonna tell you a few things that you should definitely be thinking about and considering during this time, and hopefully it will help you make your final decision. So the first thing you want to think about is academics. Obviously, the reason we're going college is for academics, because we are, you know, intellectuals. So the first level of that can be rigor. So there's like Ivy League. There's like a little I think they're like me. What do they call that many Ivies or Baby Ivy's or something like that? And then there's just like regular colleges. I think all colleges have, like, different levels of rigor, and then they also like if you're talking universities, it probably changes between colleges and stuff like that. Other than just regular, you should also consider if they have your academic program, which is a big deal. I know it seems obvious, but I know what I was making colleges. I don't know that I necessarily prioritized that I applied toe a couple different schools with a different sort of major programs that I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to do. So I think it's really important when you're doing something like that to figure out a school that has not only your major program but also other majors. Would you be interested in? He has a lot of people switch their majors. It just like is what it is I did switch my major and I was definitely I went to school and I was like, I'm not going to switch my major. I know exactly what I'm doing, but I did end absolutely nature so But I made sure that when I was thinking about you, em which, by the way, I go to University of Miami. I don't know why I keep forgetting to say that the meeting videos But when I was choosing you, I definitely was mindful of the fact that even though I applied and got in as an electronic media major in the school of communication, I also had my eyes on that motion Pictures major and honestly wanted to apply to that just like was nervous do. But now I'm motion pictures major on the production track, So whoa, yeah, also think about the way they do their general education requirements with lots of schools do those differently. Some schools saying good number schools allow you to use your like AP tests to get you out of gen. It's but I know some schools like absolutely like I'm pretty sure world Ivy Leagues your can't use any of your AP test scores he got out of generated. So, you know, you have to take all of them at u M. We have a specific general education program called Accommodates Program. So if you wanna have a lot of freedom and the way you take your general education environments, you mom is actually good option. I'm not here to spout off why you should go to you. Am I? I'm just saying that that is something to consider. The second thing to consider is the quality of life. So what I mean by that is the date today. This is a huge thing in picking the perfect college for you because, honestly, all that said about academics and how different colleges have different academics there pretty much a lot of the college are the same are of the same similar levels. A lot of what's important about choosing a good colleges, choosing somewhere that you're gonna be happy for the next four years of your life. And honestly, I think people don't understand how important that isn't in the decision making process. I think they don't think about that until the very end. They really need to find a place. It's where they're going to be happy. College is so expensive, and you'd better find a way to be happy there if you're going there and sweating a lot. Money, terms of quality, of life, things to consider are like the athletics program. Like, Do you want to go to a school that's like big on school pride? That's like Division one athletics, or do you wanna go to school? That's like, not so interested in athletics, who's, you know, athletics are problematic. Oh, you consider if you like, want to go to a D three school instead? If you're interested in playing athletics yourself, you may want to go to D three school, so you could, like, walk on and potentially play with those teams. But another thing to consider is like Do they have club sports teams? What's the prevalence of Greek life like? I also look up what organizations or arm campus justice make sure that they're like, definitely things that you'd be interested in joining. Another thing is, you can look into like, major news stories coming from this particular campuses because, um, honestly, it's there's some crazy stuff going on at certain schools, and you like probably wouldn't know about that unless, like, you do a quick Google search so that you make sure that you're not falling in love with school that deals terribly with, like sexual misconduct and race relations. And, like not fun things like that. Yes, those are things that are easy to forget to look into but could have a huge impact on your experience at school. The next thing to think about is what is most important in your current day today, or what are you missing are lacking from your current day today that you really, really would love, whether it's like beautiful weather or proximity to the industry that you're interested in, and internship opportunities that you could do during the school year. But, yeah, make sure that the environment that your school is in really gives you the freedom to like do what you love is location, so try to visit before you apply. If not, definitely try to visit after you apply. And when you're considering when you're nearing everything down, once you get in, it's really helpful to visit college because you really get to envision yourself on that campus and get a feel for what it's like, but for me, I know it's super expensive to visit colleges. I only visited, like to have apologised, that I applied to one of them being Miami and visit. I visited after I got in and assumes I visit the campus. I was like, Absolutely, I need to get here. The great thing about living in 2018 is that there's probably some YouTubers from a college. If you're interested in to be a lot of good content out there for you, you m admissions. I know we do a lot of contact that helps you like. I really see yourself at U M and experience, and I know a lot of other colleges do similar things. So definitely look out whatever college you're interested in, like Princeton University admissions air like Clemson, Admissions likes stuff like that. Colleges also visiting colleges that are near you so places that you can drive thio local colleges. I went on like a campus visit tour with my high school, and we visited a lot of colleges in the Northeast area, so I really got to experience it. What a college campus was like and like, different stuff like that and it's really helpful and really like conceptualizing all of the schools that year. Thinking about another thing to think about is what have you always wanted out of college for? This kind of goes hand in hand with some of the other things I've been saying. But what have you always want? You envision college when you think about yourself attending college college kid, What did you always want so like? If that's like Greek life or if that's big game days or flats getting morning coffees, whatever you thought of when you think of your college experience, jot down those thoughts and synthesize those thoughts and then, like, figure out if the colleges that you're looking into, like if those things would be possible, it could also help with narrowing down colleges. But yeah, so those were some of the major things to think about when you're looking at a college, they're also more things think about once you get accepted to colleges, and I could make a whole video on that if you're interested, because that will definitely be like more tailored and Maur straight into the point of like what things you should look at what things you should focus on. Want to get accepted to colleges? I applied to nine schools. I will even ended up choosing between seven. So I don't have to, like, do a process of weeding through them because we'll talk more about that. Let me know. The major thing that will leave you with is to trust the process. And I know about so annoying to you. I get it. But honestly, personally, you was not my job choice. I don't think it even wasn't my top three like it may have been my number three. It's employed. I'm not entirely sure, but it was not my number one school when I was thinking about where it's me in college. When I sent in my applications, it was not at all you. After spending a year and 1/2 year, I cannot imagine myself anywhere else based on the people that I've met in the experiences that I've been able to have. Yeah, I think this is a college experience that I was like meant to have, and I would not trade it for anything else. Yes, it's okay to get your heart set on a school. Of course, it's natural, But it's also okay if it doesn't work out because at the end of the day, a lot of these colleges are so similar, and you probably be happy at so many other schools. Seriously, like the reason why this process is so difficult because so many colleges are so similar and honestly, like you could have a great college experience it like multiple, different colleges. Process is really about. Figure out where you want to plant yourself for the next four years of your life, and even if it doesn't end up being the next four years of your life, finishes a year or two when the nutrients were like So what? That's just how life goes sometimes, and it's okay to just be along for the right. But if you have any other questions, I hope this video is helpful. I know it's a little over the place, but if you have any other questions about picking a perfect college about theories in Miami, because I know a bit about that, um, and anything else called related. If you want to see any other videos that I relate, it's college. Calm it down below and let me know, if you enjoy this video, we shouldn't leave it like, calm down below and subscribe for more content, guys. Hey, guys, Welcome back to rechannel my name she had If it's your first time here and if not, welcome back. So today I'm just gonna dio a college wrap up video. So basically a review of my first year of college. I just finished my freshman year of college at the University of Miami, so yeah hoo hoo! Yeah. So I'm just gonna pull up some of things I thought of on my phone. I think my biggest piece of advice for freshman year of college is to be open to new experiences. Looking back last year, like, where was I like, never would have imagined I'd be doing things that I do now that they really opened up my mind. And I feel like my outlook on life is like better for having have these new experiences. So I'm really glad that I liked remained open to them. Um Hm. My next thing is to hold out for good friends. Thea's you will find them. I know it gets stressful because sometimes, like, it'll seem like the first week here in college, like a bunch of people have already found their friend group. And like in some ways, like That's true. Some people will find their friend group the first week of college, first day of college or whatever and stick with them for like, I guess the rest of the four years but like that's not the case River but win the case for me. But it also say, like, don't waste time falling in with the crowd. Just have people to be around. I definitely say, like, be open, like go out with, like, different groups of people See what's the lay of the land does. But also you're like me people who were you seen? Count on who you can rely on, especially when you're going out in college, because it can be like very evil. Ex sketchy experience sometimes. So you want to make sure that you're with people who are gonna like, keep their eye on you and make sure that you're good to go. Definitely trust your instincts when it comes to friends, because we doesn't feel like a good fit than it probably isn't one. And when you know you'll like, you'll know in the same vein, give friendships that don't like. Click immediately, like give them so sometime is if you think back to like your friends from back home? At least I think back to like my friend group from back home. We didn't really, like all become a solid group of friends until, like, the second half of my junior year of high school, like solidly first Mr Senior year, we didn't all become like, as tight knit as we are now, it takes a wild making friends, and first muster, I feel like by the end of first most I don't feel like I have really clicked with anyone other than, like my roommate. Um, but by the beginning of seconds, master like, halfway through it, I like it felt like, so bonded to the group of people that I'm not that it was, like, amazing and out of this world. I'm so happy that I like stuff with it and stuck with, um um because, like, obviously really worth it, try not to keep too many walls up, because that is one of things that, like inhibit those friendships. They say all the warm up to people. But even if that is the case for you, try not like waste too much time in that stage. on just, like be opened being like one of those people because people will surprise you and they'll be like So you're like me. But we came from completely different places and completely different lives and, like, we still are you saying, like, How does that how does that work? You know, that's one of the most amazing things about colleges, like meeting people from completely different places. Um, from like where you grew up or meeting people from even like, basically where you grew up in, like finding each other. It's like, really special. Really? Now getting down to some, like practical tips. Um, do not schedule a M classes or even 9 a.m. classes if you could help it. You may think that Hey, I'm an early riser. I woke up at 56 a. M for high school classes like Humpty Fine and like, maybe will. I think there's a select group of people who that would totally be true for them. But for a lot of us, it's just like as soon as you get to college, you, like, lose the ability to be able to wake up early in the morning. Will you just can't do it. But I had nine AM classes. I've never had a Navy I may never will have made him. But I had 9 a.m. Class is my first Muster and I for next last year, and they were just, like, so hard to get you trying to schedule them later in the day. But also try not set schedule them too late. You don't have like night classes because that's ridiculous and it gets dark out. And that's Loki dangerous. So one of the things I really enjoyed this year was that I didn't have writing classes. So I'd say, If you can find a day of the week to not have classes the day of the like actual work, we have glasses that you have, like a three day weekend. That's Holmes. Probably amazing. It was really nice. Um, I actually got so used to it that I feel like if I didn't have it, I would feel like weird. Um, actually worked all day on Fridays. I worked from, like 9 to 5, so it wasn't not much of like a break, but it wasn't classes. So on that subject, I think getting on campus job. If you have, the time is on campus. Jobs are just really amazing. And they're like a great way to meet people is well, is obviously like other students work there. Um, one of my, like, really close friends. I feel like we probably wouldn't be as close we are if we, like, didn't work together and, like, have all of our classes together. Um, so that was, like, really cool getting to work with her every day. Um and then my boss is like, super cool cell, like it's really fun going into work. Um, and it's like, really got a great experience and strict for the resume. And also, it's just like teachers you responsibility to be like making your own money and spending your own money instead of like getting allowing to your parents. But also, if you have like, I have your workload girl, just like don't worry about it. Just do your work, get your grades right, because that's really the point of college. It's not really about, um, like having toe work or do any of that, because all this will be doing that later on. Um, but I think it's good. Like if you have time, did you? So you don't have to be doing what everyone else is doing, and this goes along a lot with partying, especially at you on, like everyone's like I was such a big party school like it is. But I feel like it's definitely a work hard play, hard kind of school like these. I don't think you can find anyone across the U. S. Any other school that you could find a group of people that could, like rally harder than you have students like I don't know. Obviously I haven't adult experience back that up. I don't have the knowledge to back that up, but the's folks can rally like you'll see people who go to the club every single night of the week. And those will also be the people you see in the study room, the most hitting those books and you're like they don't sleep and, you know, I don't think they do. They just don't sleep. They don't sleep. That's not a part of their lives. They're going to classes there, you know, I'm going to the club. They're reading their books. They're eating three square meals a day and living their young lives, which, like, go more power to you getting those grades right again, get it get all caught up in instrument feuds in the Snapchat stories of people like at the club every night, like you don't you owe me that even if it's like Friday night Saturday night, you're like all these people out clubbing. I'm just you're watching, right? Netflix, like that's a great way to spend your weekend like chill. You don't need to be out of the club if you don't feel like you want to be there. Like, I really thought that I was gonna be like, a party. I was like, yes, going to you. And I'm like, gonna you get a good education in part. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And then, like I experienced it a little first week and I was like, I'm okay. I had some like waves or is like, Yeah, yeah, yeah. And I was like, No, not for me. The whole partying culture can be like, really toxic first. Well, it's like built around, been drinking, which is not great generally, especially since, you know, lots of the folks are underage, but it's like going to these clients were like girls getting for pre engaged to paper little blood. And then it's just like, you know, Do you really want to be, like, objectified and, like become this just like you which, like, slab of meat and then, you know, be like getting drunk every night like, well, I don't know. You know, if you're into it, we're into it. Me personally, I realized I was not for the hard core partying lifestyle. Actually, don't really like being and like a large groups of people who are just, like all like, raging, that's like really not my scene. So, um, I prefer like a quieter night ends, um, along conversations that lasts until, like, 5 a.m. in the morning. I had quite a few of those, like, really appreciated them so much more than any nights that I went out. The next thing is, don't waste time on a major that you don't want, like, seriously, it's totally fine to switch up your major to Doctor what you wanna do with my lot, Robert. But like don't so many people, it's like meeting people of first week of college like Oh, yeah, I'm premed in premed and pretty bad, and you're just sitting very like, and it's like no judgment to those people. Absolutely not. But I feel like there's a certain number of those people who, like realize that they're only going for a certain major just because they want to, like, have a major they don't want to be under clear. There's nothing wrong with being under cleared. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being under clear, and I think it's a great way to be, Um I mean, hopefully, at least for you. Um, it would be best to be like in the school or college of your choice and be under cleared. They're so awful. If he knew, like a general gauge of like what you want to do, that would be helpful. But if you like, I have absolutely no idea. It's totally fine. I think it's better to be under clear than to be heading for a major and like two requirements for a major that you like, You know, deep down that you don't want to do like, totally sir time. Don't waste other people's time like it's just like such a waste, and you could be spending more time doing what you want to do and finish up those requirements that in those last years you could just flit around And do, you know, like maybe you've wasted the time that you could be studying abroad My taking requirements for this major that you don't want, you know? So just don't waste time. Just don't do it. It's really colleges are really expensive thing, especially if you go to your home. It's so expensive. So do not waste your time on taking classes going through major that you don't want. This is specifically you on get the lowest like swipe plan the Locusts Dining Plan. I have the 14th white pill plan at the 14th White Plan, which I think you get 130 or $169 along with 151 of those numbers. 1 75 from around there. Um, you get like that much dining dollars, along with the 14 swipes per week, and I can probably count on my hand how many times I used up those wipes for a week like I barely ever use them up. And I only eat like a normal human being, obviously didn't eat that much there because I decided to start cutting a lot of things out pretty early on in my freshman year. So, like once it stopped eating meat just like really the tiny house and not doing it for me. So, um, keep in mind if you're likely in a vegetarian, let's not great. If your editor and you can probably live begin, it's really art's pretty hard. They're trying, but it's like not great. University of Miami is a very fun place to go to school, and I know I'm not the only one that will tell you this. Many people tell you this, especially if they know anything about you. Um, they tell you sure that you don't get distracted your freshman year because the very fund let's go to school. And there's so many distractions around the city of Miami just on campus itself. There's so many distractions, so many different forms of them. Um, it's kind of goes for any school you go to, but especially Miami like so close till I got Miami environment. There's so many things that could distract you, and you can really like falling to it, and I just say do it all in moderation. Or, like maybe until this week, you know, do it all at once, and then you'll realize who does. Not a lifestyle that I want. You should step back. Um, but I think it's, like, so important to just keep yourself, like level headed in the situation, Um, and do not use up too much of that. Like freshmen forgiveness, as they call it. I've got to think like all schools would sell anything that you people talk about. Like freshmen Forgiveness goes like freshman year can be wild if you like living life untamed. So just like take it all slow. You have to go crazy. I give you guys one example. By the way, if you join up with silly week is silly week is syllabus weak and then you shorten it and then it's still early and you know I get silly. I'm so obviously because it's not really anything. You just going to classes. You get your syllabus basically on, like independent some classes. I bet like start to Jane. But like you, probably you like unlikely toe have much homework that week. Um, so that's like prime time for going out first semester. I didn't really I don't remember. Like taking that much advantage of syllabus week. I remember once we got there were, like trying to see, like, What's the deal with my going out? But like once, if you don't really know the lay of the land, it's like pretty hard to like, figured out. Some people just have the plug. You'll meet those people who just know every single thing that's going on, like immediately, and you're like, Well, I remember going out that much, But second semester I went out every single night Krystle of this week, which was a lot going out, every single one of you. It's just a wild thing. Do I go wild thing to do so unnecessary, I'd say, Like maybe experienced What? Once. If you're gonna do it, do it during Soul of this week, one like Everything's good. Like it's fine. I got really good grades semesters, so I'm not, like, stressed about it. But it was an experience, Um, second buster, I will say full disclosure. I joined a sorority. I'm not gonna talk too much about that. If you guys do you want me to talk about it. I did drop. I'm not silliness already. I can't discuss that. If it's like, interesting at all to you guys. I'm not talking about which one. It is because the community is like, substantial eight yuan. But it's like a little smaller than out of it. Other schools, like I'm not really like Feli discuss it all the gory details. There's no gory details. It just wasn't for me. That's basically like it about this story. Um, yeah, experienced it for a little under. Just wasn't for me. But in the time that I waas, surety was like Still, this week was like plant, you know, not like actually blend, but like you knew everything that was happening and you're like popping around toe like this in that So that is the thing that is possible that you could D'oh! But personally, I hope that you'll ever be doing that again, like it was nice to experience it. But no, it's not really my life to be going out. There is not another week police in that capacity and, like the large party capacity, is one thing you really just hanging out with, like your children friends look every night like That's different. That's it for this video. That's all I have for you guys that I hope you all enjoyed watching this video. And if you did, be sure to like, coming down below and subscribe for more content.

So I'm a freshman theater received Miami and I am in the communication honors program, so that also makes my acceptance things like a little bit different. Um, I'll give you some perspective.

Um, even if you have, even if you haven't visited because let me tell you once you visit the campus like I have yet to meet a person who visited you on campus and was like ill, you know, it was like I would not be interested in living in endless sunshine and happiness and massages and three puppies and all sables on Wednesday. You know, like I don't know. Maybe if that's you, that's okay. Some people like this. No, I can't really. I'm actually making this video because of a comment that I got one of my videos. S o. I'll read that right now to make sure that I answer over questions that she asked. So Courtney asked, Can you do a video on how you got into you? How you got the full ride in your grades in F. C t scores. I'll start out with, like, my grades s a t scores a whole like she bang about least that's what Yu has really, really, really want to know. You've been asking me, like so many times and like I'm not not answering you to be rude. It's just like hunting for your question. But honestly, like, I don't really care. I think some of assessing this sham. So sorry if you think otherwise, that's cool for you. So Maya's a t score? I didn't take. Basically, I did take a practice. A city in a practice s a T before any studying or anything happened. And I did like pretty much same one bill test. So I just decided to go for the S A. T s. I was really not about the science section on the C t, but I got a 13 40 a message t which is nothing spectacular or exciting, like it's fine. I'm really not great at standardized testing. I'm not great testing in general. I've quite a bit of test anxiety. Um, having sad, like I maybe get up studied more also, but I just really wasn't that invested. And my city scores because I spent somewhere shine like working hard during high school on my grade, So I really just whole essay teething came around. I was kind of like, very negative about the whole process. And that does not help your grades. By the way, Miami Dottie View has loads of information about all of this stuff for my freshman class. The freshman class of 2017 r Class profile says that our 25th percentile s a T scores were 30 where a 13 20 our 75th percentile scores were 14 40. Basically, what that means to me is that you should probably even to get between of 13 20 a 14 40 on your safety. If you're like aiming to get certain score, I'd say, like maybe you're saying to do the best you can, like, see what you can do with that because that's what I did on to the next thing grades. So I did not have a job ta in high school, but I'm in. The airline is like B plus range for grades from high school and without into perspective. I went to a small private school in New York City's so it was extremely academically rigorous. Um, it wasn't like average tow. Have a 4.0, I know, like at a lot of other schools, like a lot of people have four point nose. But of the people that had four point owes in my class, like those people went to Ivy leagues or got untied believes it's probably also like when I say a minus B plus rangers. Really, as you're more to like the B plus range, which is It all depends on the reason I told you, like about my school, just because it all depends like what school you're coming from and also the rigor of your course load. I was super involved in high schools, so I lead three clubs. I let the Drama Club Spirit Club raising awareness advocating Diversity Club. I was also a student tour guide. I was a little on my ambassador. Um, I was like the clerk of freshman orientation, and I did like so many things that I can't even imagine how I did them all now because all I do now is sleep. Um, and I also had a job after school. This is just like what I think from like what I've seen and what I've experienced, I would say something that's really important, especially since we do not have supplements. You should definitely definitely make sure that your college essay you comin up essay is like a strong one. I think my cominup essays like one of the best things that I've ever written and like not that you guys would do this, but like, don't ask me in the comments to share my common app essay with you. I know some people agreed their essays. Um, I just personally think Linus, like, personal on I want to keep it to myself. I don't know if you guys remember Hurricane Sandy, which was, like, way back one, but when it came through, it flooded the bottom of my house with six feet of water. Like while we, me and my family were in the house. And my room is in the basement where it was flooded, and it took us, like, three years to recover from that. So I wrote a little bit about that and tied it into, like, school in academics and, um, just like how I grew from the experience, but just make sure your chisel about you, whatever a story you decide to tell which I think it's pretty obvious, but you can literally write about anything. Um, I think my college counselors told us to choose, like top five moments are like top things that have ever happened to you and then, like trying to write about one of those. I started writing the summer before my senior year because that's when we really told you I like super great college counselors and also to let you know, like as Faras, where your mom was on the spectrum. For me, it was a mid range school. I say It's super important, something that every college that you applied to will see so like worked really hard on it. And if somebody tells you to start writing this honor for your senior year, or if they don't like, let me be the one to tell you. Start writing the summer before your senior year or start brainstorming. I brainstorm to topics, and the second of those became my college essay, and I was done with it. Probably like Midway's your first Mestre, and that's really a nice wait to be lifted off of you. I have to write a bunch of supplements for other schools, which is kind of annoying now, looking back because I came to school that asked for no supplements. But, you know, you gotta play along with the game in the process. So I think extracurriculars really important. There's some statistic about you having the most involved student body, But I definitely comptel from a lot of the people I talk to you. They're definitely people who are leaders on their habits. They're people who are super involved in their school queen bee. You're in their community at large and like, if you didn't have a million extracurriculars, that is also okay, Maybe get a few things that you're super get out or like, one thing that you're super get up, but you spend a lot of time with I think that's okay is well, um, but they always tell you regulars are good for college, but also don't do extracurriculars just because they're good for college. I do not do a single one of my extracurriculars because I thought it would look better on my college application. I know that may sound like a ho really like you did it. But, like no, genuinely, I wanted to do all the extracurriculars because I am controlling honestly. But I was also super invested in my school community. Last thing I'm gonna talk about is my scholarship. Depth of the Ronald ate him in scholarship, which is a full tuition scholarship Over the course of your four years at U M of an entire video tells you literally exactly what happened during the weekend giving anything away.

This is not to Detroit you at all because I personally have never won anything like you're told you. I went to a small private school that was, like, academically rigorous. And I've always been kind of like middle of the pack. So coming to you, em And like going to that scholarship about I'm not. Show me people who were like super intelligent who are like I'm premed.

We have tossed, which is like salads. But there's also like raps and healthy things like that. We have clear tropical Burger three Oh, five Sushi Maki way just got Vicki's cafe, which I'm so excited about because, you know, we're in Miami and Cuban food is amazing. So they have a Cuban food and Penn Express way have out takes, which is open pretty late, has just like, uh, cereal bars like granola bars, apples and just random food. Gatorade things Teo, take to your dorm. But another thing I'll tell you guys inside in a second, but I love this outside area. This is called the patio and on Think it's Thursdays. We have patio jam. And so the kids from the Frost school music will perform out here. Yeah, right there. And you can, like, eat out in these tables. Core no one here because it's nine in the morning. But what it looks like. And this isn't me confused with the dining hall. That's like a separate thing close to the dorms for the students, but This is for people who live off just trying to get lunch in school. Already. So that's actually brought us to the end of this tour. I hope you guys enjoyed my campus just as much as I did. I really think you guys will love Miami. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made my life. And I know it will be one of Y'all's, too. My last bit of advice to you guys is really cherish your freshman year. I can't stress enough. It goes by in a blink of an eye. And I want one hundred percent miss every new experience, every memory, every, you know, laugh, cry. You know, just everything. Your freshman year kind of just set you up for the rest of college, so take it seriously, It's not a joke, but also have the best time. You know, make your best friends. You're going to meet some people that are definitely going to be your bride's maids. Your you know, your best met man, All of that stuff. So really take into consideration all of the people around you, Really? You know, cherish them like as much as you can. I was bawling crying the minute I had to leave and go back home. So if I were to give you my last piece of advice. That would be too really cherish every moment you have in college because it goes by in a blink of the eye and especially your freshman year. So that's it. Go, Keynes, and I hope to see So next you're just going to see some testimonials from a few friends? Yes, summer. More joking than others. But everything they have like to say is really the truth. The best and worst part of Miami from me would probably be the best is the people and just No one judges, you hear? I really feel like I've found my home here. And for me, the worst thing is probably the rain. I had a situation where I had to run from one building to the other on other sides, the campus for my class. And it was torrential downpour ng and I stepped up my back back in the everything and I ran, you know, from Flip C two cocks and I open my laptop and it's just completely ruined. So definitely make sure you have an umbrella with you, but yeah, so those air just some more funny advice. But everything is really serious and, you know, the academics, everyone does really care about their grades here's. That's also really nice thing to know that everyone around you will support you and will help you in your academics. And no one wants you to fail here, everyone helps each other. Everyone send study guides and those kinds of things. So I hope you like the student body at Miami with these interviews. Please tell me your name and why I'm the school. My name's Lauren Brown. I wanted to come to Miami because my brother is a lot older. Wass touring when I was like, seven years old and ever since then, I ended up coming like three or four more times and just falling about James. How would you describe the student body? Divers in terms of what people are interested in and everyone's from really different places, it's not too large. You know, some of the people, but you don't know what's your major in house word your academic managers, media management within the communications. It depends on what, uh, defensible classes I'm taking. Really? For how hard everything is, but but a lot of effort. And you should be. I'm favorite and least favorite part of the university, but they're part of years. Miami is there's always so much going on. I am is a really cool place. And there's always people that want to do things with you. These favorite is probably not being ableto Go do whatever you want all the time. Socially. Yeah. How would you describe your classes here? Challenge. How many? I think I'm taking six. This story you think you're taking and taking six? Yes, six. And giving him balance a little Merkin tests mullahs or Yeah, for the most part, sometimes it gets a little aggressive, but for the most part, it's not that bad. Yeah, some weeks, your professors like toe all gang up and put every test on these wait times in two days. Five in a week. I have. So that's already. Can you introduce yourself? Peter Cleveland from Chicago, Illinois. I'm a junior, but what you're saying I'm a finance and business law made. How did you say your classes are very good? It's definitely hard with my schedule. What? It's definitely worth it. All right. You want your biggest guys? Were freshmen Definitely go to class. There's definitely there's There might not be in attendance policy, but you can't get it if you don't know what the best and worst thing Miami Best thing is that from the people.

What about the student body's Great. Everyone's very friendly. That's where my best, uh, say those community, the life is the worst. It's probably the humidity. Yeah. What? What? Campus buzzing. It's fucking going, Yes. A lovely canvas buzzing people at the right barn. Fucking The other route is the best place on any college campus across the entire country. Was a far right on the lake. Burn on campus. Eight dollars happy our pictures port for What is up, everyone? We're back here at the farmer's market. I got my little Sybil and just wanted to do my little closing statement and say that I had an amazing time working with campus. Real. I love showing you guys campus. It's It's amazing. I love this school. I couldn't have made a better choice. And it really wasn't my first option. Crazy how life works And Ianto appeared. I had best college experience ever and just a senior giving you guys a little pointers. Enjoy college. Yes. You're here to study. Uh, my parents and my family has helped me so much to be here in this private university. And I'm so grateful. And I have put a lot of work and effort, um, into my studies, But, um, I also took all of college and I enjoyed everything. I met so many people. I tried so many different things. For what out I tried to go to, like, as many events I could go and just enjoyed every moment of it. And I don't know, um, some of my favorite college memories have been in the freshman dorms. Just meeting all of my girlfriends that were still breast friends today, which is crazy. But, yeah, I'm a bit my best friends are from freshman year, and then I'm just going to all the events school puts on, like, the pancakes way random. They had Hyundai for free. Me and my friend just came and, like, hung out and the farmer's market the other day, Drake came to campus like it was crazy. Just random things. Um, yeah. Enjoy college study a lot, but have a good time again. I think you m is one of the best options we have. Such a diverse group of people here on campus. Uh, just make friends wherever you can. It's amazing experience. And I hope you guys had a great time coming on this tour with me. I hope you learned a lot. I hope Miami becomes one of your options. Next, we're gonna talk about place on campus to eat and kind of price range is on that. So the what I'm going to show you is Farmer's market, which happens every Wednesday. It's a really nice thing that the student body actually created and where a bunch of consumers from all around the area kind of just all come on Wednesdays from. I think it's tended to yeah, tended Teo. And you can get anything from fruit Hibachi Tio aside, rebels like you can get literally any type of food that you want. They're also there's the route, which is everyone talks about it, but it's the place where you can drink on campus. It has outside gliders that are super nice. Everyone hangs out, and every Friday the band comes and plays. But if you're not twenty one, you shouldn't go there and drink because you will get in so much trouble on DH. Then, also the other place I'm showing you is line, which is the Mexican restaurant on campus. It is right next to the pool and has a bunch of really good food. I just want to touch on to other things. So I'm a sophomore, so I don't have access to the dining hall. But I'm gonna have I'm going to go to the dining hall and actually take a video. But I guess the stats on that there's different meal plans based on how much you anywhere from, I think a meal a day, two three meals, toe unlimited so you can come in as many times as you want. It's a buff, a super good food. It's around. I think it's twelve dollars. If you don't have you know, swipes on your card to go, you can pay twelve dollars and still get the unlimited buffet. It has breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night dining. So breakfast they have an omelet bar. They have, you know, whole fruit tray. They have a parfait place. You can make waffles lunch. They have normally hot dogs, burgers and that kind of food, always. And then the hot, especially specialty food that switches out based on the day. But they'll have, like an Asian cuisine. They'll have a pasta or something like that. They always have raps, and they have dessert as well. And I love this Bert. And then, uh, they also then, for dinner have different types of food. Again, though, stitch it up, they'll have a different type of pasta tacos, a different Asian cuisine. Salad bar, pasta salad. There's so many different things that you could eat at the freshmen dining halls, but just some of the other place on campus that you kanae are the rat food market lime. There's also out takes, which is a convenience store that's open twenty four seven on campus has, you know, anywhere from Gatorade Toe Advil tio ice cream? Teo. Ice is anything that you could imagine, and then also the Hurricane Food Court, which I could not get a video because it deleted, sadly. But they have Subway, Panda Express poi Oh, tropical. What's it called? Fresh on DH that toss not fresh toss. And it has fresh food like salads and stuff like that. And they also have sushi maki in the back. So if you're craving no sushi, so any of that type of stuff you confronted the Hurricane food court and then these air the videos to show you all about it. So this is the market right now that I'm showing you. Like I said, there's kiosk set up. This is me getting my food. I always get the same thing on the bull Gogi bim bop and it's amazing. You have no idea. And then these air just kind of the rest of little places you can go. Like I said, it's our wide, a rage of stuff. You literally could get something from every culture. And you would never get the same thing twice. Well, yeah, I don't think you'd actually get the same thing twice, Ever. And then this next video is lime. You know, they have nachos, all that type of Mexican cuisine, and it's right next to the pool. And then this is the rat. Like I was saying outside is where all the gliders are and where people, you know hang out. But this is the inside has a sports, you know, Sports bar vibe has a bunch of TVs. You can watch the game if you don't actually plan on going. Or if you just want to relax and kind of have, you know, bar food, then that's really good because it has chicken tenders and so many different specials and milkshakes. Okay, so this is an example of the freshmen dining hall. This is right next to Stanford and Hecht. Right at the front. You swipe your cane card. Then over here is where you get most of your breakfast foods. There's a bunch of drinks. You could make waffles here, cereal bar and then, you know, dinnertime. You can also get cereal to the left, which I'm about to show you is where you make your omelets and have the buffet in the middle is where salad and fruits go and some soup on the end. They also have soft serve, and this is the cane zone. Where is where all the athletes get a sit on DH. Then just over there you can see hot dogs, burgers. That's where the desert normally goes.
