So this beautiful view is the law school arches, which lead as a gateway from Debark Wan. Just academic, too. West Quad, South Quad and Gone Quad, which are residential. So let's check him out. So here is South Quad in all of its glory. It has dorms on either side. Here and then. At the back is the Rock Me Memorial Building, which is actually one of the on campus gyms. It's the older on campus gym. Hey, guys. So do you guys live on South Quad? Yeah, We live right by their awesome. So what's your favorite part about living on South Quad? I mean, on a day like today, it's so nice during Midterms week, we just want to relax, play some volleyball. So here is the most important question. North Dining Hall or South Dining Hall, I say. So. Do you say North? No. Oh, why do you say north? That's a controversial opinion. It's a nice walk, Ascot Claude. That's true. And there's more space because of the new renovation. And I just personally think the food dispenser that's what we'd leave wrong. All of this points convey rebutted. Not now. It's easily refuted. Yes, I wanted to say Both of our dining halls are great and beautiful. So I'm about to walk to the Duncan Student Center, which Wass opened at the beginning of this year. Twenty eighteen connected to the football stadium. But before I show you that right next to it is the basketball arena. So this is the Joy Center, and it has the basketball games. Any fencing? Um, our school is number one in fencing and lots of Jim's for other sports, But it's not basketball season, so let's keep walking. Now the Duncan Student Center has three places to eat. One is called the Haggerty Family Cafe, which has smoothies, crepes, gelato and coffee. The second is called Modern Market, and it has lots. It has lots of different types of foods, but they're all organic. Locally sourced. This little ingredients is possible and can be a little bit expensive. The third is a a place where you can get uh, which I've never tried before, but I've heard from people that it's really good and they just started selling sushi, so that's really fun. Hopefully, I have enough flex points. Teo, get a sandwich, the modern market. But I'll have to check that before I buy it. One tip is, I highly recommend if you want to explore anything else about Notre Dame. The maps when things were open, um, even like live video footage at all times to download the nd mobile. That's what I'm about to check my flex point balance. And that's where you could get tons. More information about our cameras. So here's an overview of the gym in the Duncan student center. He saw where the cycling classes are now. Over here, there is where most of the free weights are. Up those stairs, there is a track that you can run around. Wei have lots of different machines. Any machine I've ever seen. You can see there's lots of cardio machines back there. There are two full basketball courts that you can see as you run around the track. And there is the line of front of those. There are ellipticals in upstairs by the track. So I'm standing at the front of God Claude. Which why's it called God Quad? For a few reasons? It has the dome, which has a statue of our Lady Mary. It has the cathedral on campus, and there are a collection of statues and religious relics throughout the quad. This quad has so much tradition and also houses to dorms. So as you move further into God quad, we see this statue, which is of Father Edward Soran, who is a Holy Cross priest who founded Notre Dame in eighteen forty two. And as you could see, I am not standing on the grass right now. And why's that? Because one Notre Dame tradition in myth, is that if you step on the God plug grass, you will fail your theology class. There's another fund entered a myth that I'll get Teo at the main building, which is the door. So here we are at arguably the most beautiful spot on campus, and I'm so glad you guys got to see it with the follies on the side. So a funny thing about this building is you will rarely see people going up the front steps, and if you dio, you know that they're not students, because, um, it is if you walk up the main steps of the main building before you graduate, you won't graduate, so no one wants to do that. Hi. My name's Julian Forte. I'm a junior science business major at Notre Dame. I'm from Charlotte, North Carolina, and live here in line. So why did you choose Notre Dame? Uh, well, for me, I visited a bunch of schools, but each one, something was missing. But when I came to Notre Dame, I just felt like everything was finally here. I had the faith aspect of being Catholic University. Also, I love the dorm communities. When I came here, I just really felt like it was a home away from home. I'm going to the Ryan home ass is going to our cooking night, just activities that we have here in the dorms that make it feel like a strong community. We also have really strong academics, Thomas Wells, fun football games, basketball games, big sports culture. And additionally, everyone at Notre Dame really takes service seriously on DH, participates and things outside of the classroom and is really passionate about that. I'm not sure about that about the student body, but yes, I was going to ask How would you describe the student body? Uh, yeah. I said I would say the main thing is that the student body is very passionate. Students get involved in things, and they are committed to them from then on. So you said your major with science business, Can you explain that? Mohr and described the academic climate at Notre Dame. So I chose to be a science business major because I have a passion for health care. I've always really enjoyed that the intricacies of health care in my science classes throughout high school. But I also want to combine that with something a little different in somebody on the business side, so that I would have that experience and see what those classes were like moving forward. So another name design business Major Major's pretty unique. So I take all the science classes that are required for re professional pre med students, and then I also take classes in the business school and take all the introduction classes there. So I have. It's almost like a major and minor kind of with the types and amount, of course is that we take so it allows students the opportunity to go to med school, dental school? Well, uh, school any of those that they want to go to the pre Rex for that and then also going into business, going to consulting or going into any sort of industry with health care. You have a really good experience in background for that, and it's been wonderful through the recruiting process so far. Andan regards the academic culture here at Notre Dame. Students are very motivated. They're very on top of their studies, and they definitely are very serious about doing well on tests doing their assignments. But with that, people understand that there's a lot more to life than just your assignments. And students get involved in a lot of other things outside of school. We have plenty of time to hang out with their friends, and you don't feel like the academics are overwhelming you all the time you get immunity is part of the culture here, but it's not overwhelming. Okay, so no. What is your favorite and least favorite part of Notre Dame? Tough one. So favorite. It's hard because there's so many wonderful things I love about nerdy and fighting. The biggest thing to be the dorm community. Like I was saying earlier in Ryan Hall, we have door masses every Sunday as well. One day during the week. If you want to go, you can. You don't have to do. It's up. Definitely optional. But it's a great time to be with all your friends and people from all different grades, from freshman to senior people live in the dorms all four years. They can if they want to. They don't have to. But you do see seniors in the dorms as well as first freshmen and sophomores. So that's something that I really enjoy because I've got no people all different ages on, and it gives you that ability to see what you're looking forward to you or what you should be doing or what opportunities there out there that you want to pursue. And they're all really excited to talk to you. And so going to Mass and going Teo activities in the dorm. We have section Olympics, different parts of the hall compete against each other. We have a waffle Wednesdays. We have F days cookies on Tuesdays after whole government. Um, so just a lot of activities that are really fun and you get to look forward to them every week. And every every day there's something new Tio dio with your closest friends and people really are connected to their dorms forever. And then, Oh, sorry. Least favorite thing. God, it's hard. It's really hard. What, um, I have to say, Oh, probably the weather at Notre Dame would be released. Everything. That's unfortunate. That's not control well being for North Carolina. I definitely appreciate the warm weather and hearing soft band. The weather is not wonderful, definitely gets cold. But I was just talking someone today about how the weather on Christmas time is really fun because, yeah, you might be in finals and it might be kind of rough and cold, but on the other hand, you get a cup of cocoa, a cup of tea and you sit there and everything's decorated for Christmas and it's beautiful. And and it's all right, you know, the snow was pretty and you go build a snowman or take part in the snowball fights we had every year here on campus, and you just make the best. Okay, thank you very much, Julia. I'm Ryan Draper. I am a junior mechanical engineering major. You know, today I was home. So what made you choose? Notre Dame? Um, I think one of biggest things, but her name is just like the beautiful campus. I loved all the open space, the quads, and then love the community of life of the dorms. Um, stay for hall. Really is a community here. We'll build off each other, and we have a really cool event. So you feel your life along with the amazing campus are a couple of reasons, right? Come. So how would you describe the student body as a whole? The student body is yes, your today. That was really smart for sure, huh? Everyone works really hard. We all build off each other, especially mechanical engineering. We've actually got your cheque mechanic engineers. We we have problems. We bounce him off each other. We'll tryto help each other. Work harder, do better. So I think that's one really cool thing is that we all could help each other. So you kind of touched on this already. But what? How would you do if you were to further describe thie academic climate at Notre dame, What would you say? Yes, it's definitely tough. But once again, everyone here, uh, is motivated is very motivated. Self, you can always find Resource is there's so much help available. I know that Learning Resource Center offers tutors now for your instructors offer office hours on there's th that could help you. And then once again, all your classmates are very willing to help you out. So while the coursework is, it's heavy, it's very difficult. But there's so much help around that you're set up to succeed here for sure if you you really put the effort in. Okay. And then lastly, what would you say? Your favorite and your least favorite thing about Notre Dame is everything for father. Name is definitely traditions, especially in football. Well, right now we're full swing in our games. You know, Game day is one of the best environments I've ever been, and it's so much fun. And then, you know, outside of football names has so many major amazing traditions that are rooted deep history. I think that's my favorite thing about her name. What's your favorite tradition? Say nothing. The murder rate really a drum circle, which is the night before a football game. The drummer's go out at midnight and they kind of get you pumped up for the game. Gets ready to go and play some music. Its really cool. I think that's what my petitions. And then he says everything about her name. No, I have something that I really don't like. Uh, as I mentioned earlier. It's tough. Which is all Your time was taken up. You know, you're either working your I don't get trying to catch up on some sleep. We're trying to hang out with friends like you don't really have any downtime. You're always You're always doing something. Go, go, go. We should get tiring sometimes, but I think it's over. All right. Thank you very much, Ryan.
