The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
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. When I came to Notre Dame, I just felt like everything was finally here. I had the faith aspect of being Catholic University. 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. 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. 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. 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. An regards the academic culture here at Notre Dame. They're very on top of their studies, and they definitely are very serious about doing well on tests doing their assignments. People understand that there's a lot more to life than just your assignments. 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. What is your favorite and least favorite part of Notre Dame? Tough one. It's hard because there's so many wonderful things I love about nerdy and fighting. Like I was saying earlier in Ryan Hall, we have door masses every Sunday as well. 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. 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. So going to Mass and going Teo activities in the dorm. We have section Olympics, different parts of the hall compete against each other. Um, so just a lot of activities that are really fun and you get to look forward to them every week. Every every day there's something new Tio dio with your closest friends and people really are connected to their dorms forever. What, um, I have to say, Oh, probably the weather at Notre Dame would be released. That's not control well being for North Carolina. I definitely appreciate the warm weather and hearing soft band. 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 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.
