Next up on our stadium is the baseball stadium. They have escapes me right now, but you'll know when the video because of the way and us exactly where it's a great across the street from where I live. Like it's complete walking distance from where my apartment complexes, which is nice. It's really pretty, and this was always in the spring. And so it's like when it's nice outside, like, what else would you want to dio? They said, so hear this? Founder's Park. That's what it's called. Um, yeah, I've actually never been to a baseball game like a big fan. I know, but this spring, him definite going because that is where I live. Like you could see my car. So it's literally walking distance. I'm definitely gonna go. And then this. That's the direction of campus. So I'm about a mile off. Give us, um, as you could see those seats and score for as you could also say, there's construction going on, which I'm glad they're ways, because it's a go reminder for me to tell you guys there's always construction going on in the city of Colombia, and it's just something you'll deal with and it's okay, but it can This video is going to be about housing. You know, Start was showing at my place. So this is called a reverie edge. It's one of the many off campus student housing apartment complexes now. What does that mean? Well, it means that it's an off campus living place, but mostly students live there, and they were built with the intention of having students live there. So this is a three by two. So it's three bedrooms, two bathrooms. I get my own bathroom, and I paid just ten dollars extra a month for that, Which is nice, I got to say, though living in one of these complexes is really expensive compared to living in just a house. Come, it's all renting and so usually have a twelve month lease. That's a little frustrating because I never lived here, but the's complexes have a lot of amenities. That's nice. They've been pulling a gym usually, however, so this campus and you're paying for that with your tuition. So after living in these two different complexes for two years, I realized, like probably just living in a house would be the best option in terms of like what you're getting for your money. I honestly like these Complex is sort of trying to take you for all you got in terms of money, and the house is a RH usually like two hundred dollars cheaper in red for months. So I recommended. I mean, either way, it's still pretty. I'm glad I had the pool so close Bikes. I love the pool. But once you're done living on campus, I would suggest going for a house before games for one of these complexes because they really just try So we have dying off. There is one leg communal building for a plunge itself called Russell. How's the insurgent converse Alehouse Union? Because there's like, so much going on there. There's so many food options. That's also where my office is for work. That's where student government offices are. It's just it's like the very central place on campus. Um, I eat there every single day. There's so many options. It's great. There's much other dining, all options that I barely even go. Teo honestly, but it's nice to have options. There are other smaller letting holes that I go to towards like my other classes that are closer by. There's Starbucks all over the place, and so here's video that So this is Russell House Union. It has one of our four bookstores. Get a lot of stuff in there. It's also where you need to pick up books. When you ordered them like textbooks and stuff, it really got everything. As you can see on this sign here. Just so many offices. But also places said that bike rack this side is more dining home area. The child. Shall you just coming up here more seating? Chick fil A Clearly So this is the upstairs eating area. There's a deli, a pizza place taco place Downstairs, there's Chick Fil A's you could see in the back. There's also little market places where you can get snacks. There's two filet and another Asian restaurant in that cute little sign to take pigs in Panera. And what a Panera Law. So, yeah, and that's a lot of seeing. And there's would like to meet people there instead of the library, because the library can get a little too crowded. So and like Russell. My next video is going to be. I worked downtown area off campus called Five Points. There are a lot of things there. There's like shops and boutiques and fast food and like, sit down places and a bunch of bars. Well, go on and go out to bars. You know what? Downtown? For five points other way. Uh, it's it's about it's I think it's a little less than a mile from campus. Depending on where you are, I can't piss. Some people do walk when you're coming from campus, but there's also a lot of houses around there that people can like that. But it's very popular place where students go e and to go out at night and stuff like that, and so here is from that that little clip was a very popular liquor store. The live students go to call Jimmy and Sons. This is Latitude rooftop, which are bars the cotton generate there another bar. But see been in America. We've got shops. You got the baked bear over there, which is that ice cream place that puts ice creamy tweet between two cookies. And that's like Brand new. We've got a T Mobile barbershop who got shot? What Flag Place is a restaurant college? Mark Marie. Any other needs over here? Is Sushi Yoshi, My favorite sushi place. A glove. It's so, so good. There's the barn and cover three, which are other bars? Harper's, which is a restaurant. This isn't even everything. Mystique. The boutique Babuji is that, you know, and this is just like so close to campus. Like even on a nice day, You could just kind of walk around the party place funny billboard decorations for Christmas breakers, which is another bar publica. Any deli. There's so many sandwich shops, you all there's I am going to show you a few videos of various classrooms. That's what they asked for on this one. Yeah, I I have a smaller major, and so my question during all of this, but here they are. So this is like the area where a bunch of people hang out before and after class. There's, like, four classrooms in this whole area, and that's how I got to know a bunch of people on a major, especially when it's so comfy. Look at the couches and stuff, miss in my theater class, so it needs a lot of, like, room to move. So there's not like desks. But, yeah, this's another part of the building the whole way that gets the lecture hall now. Unfortunately, I shall see later in the video, it was locked so I could get in. And so I apologize about that. But, um, it's really your typical stadium seating. Huge room, just like you see in the movies. Honestly, it's one thing that movies like portray well, so yeah, there's a locked room. Sorry, this is Gambrel, where I have my film media studies class and I have been English classes. My classes in this building usually like about thirty kids to one. Professor. Um, I really like when the professor's office hours when there's a class like that size because it's actually pretty medium size. When you think about it, you know something's lecture halls are huge, but I still like it. You know, all professors have office hours. The school is just enormous. And so the more faculty I think that you could get close with, the better. That's the teacher's desk. And here's the classroom. As you could see about some kid asks, just pretty Building and show you what is Gambrell. It's really common for classes or so many classrooms in this building. There's Electoral, having English class there at my film media studies class, there now. It's nice. It's just it's a pretty building on the outside's pretty on the inside. There's a bunch of places that you can eat they sit outside of. It was really like, So you're next, Okay, first off, I want to show you all this clip really quickly. These people literally to standing and saying Good luck for finals, just got a bridge. Housefly was at anyway, this's gambro. I had to walk on that bridge to get there. So that's why I took that footage. But she's got a really pretty, you know, design right there. It's just like this big rectangular building of the bunch of offices and classrooms. Um, this is the inside area. Got some benches to jail if you're like, early to class. And then next to it is humanity is with this Starbucks underneath. And let me tell you, I'll go to that Starbucks all the time. It takes your meal plan. And so there's really no reason not to go, especially from early to my humanities class. You know, that I have in this building, which is Spanish. And so I think if you take any language, you're probably gonna have it in this humanities class This video is about dorm room essentials. When I think about this topic, I just think about all those things that I was using that was like, my remains my freshman year, one of them being a stapler a bunch of times, and everything went. But I get nothing being a printer. Which, luckily parents, balmy. But for that, it was like trying to figure out hers. Or your, you know, was ordered to pay to use a printer. Anywhere you go, you have to pay South Carolina, too. So I would recommend just investing in one. Because you only when you know for, uh, what else storage. Any sort of stores you can get is really helpful. It depends on how your dorm room is. What most likely. Even if you have a single bedroom, there's just not gonna be a lot of room. You'll get, like, a dresser. But you're gonna need more than that. Depending on your closet is and stuff. But like, you're gonna want bends. And especially those, like, once you put under your bed. Those were very helpful. I was. I was like, the little things, like tape paperclips. And I just didn't even think about how I got there. I don't have any more. I like having a like a husband pillow like a big why, Hello? It's got arms like this because usually in a freshman dorm, you don't you like your desk chair, and that's like your only furniture. And so people going to see your everything in your bed, A lot of people are gonna be staying in bed a lot. So it was nice to have a pillow that you could just sit against its not to second directing it. Also, that being said, like a lot of people are going to sit on your bed. So you're thinking that you want to get, like, a beautiful white comforter in that it'll stay beautiful for your refreshment here call now, you know, I covered her fine, but have make sure you, you know, like a blanket to put over it during the day or whatever because it's illegal to sit in a doorman. A lot of times, it depends like some places here have common rooms with Countess stuff, and that's great. But that's not everywhere. And so I also definitely recommend But my favorite landmarks as well is the top of the Hamden, is it? Yes. The top of their Hampton garage. You can see every single piece of sunset. It's like it's just a perfect location. In a perfect height for you, you could see higher than the trees, and you could just let the skies. And this is beautiful. So you because they're watching. Sense that so when you go that they literally like spikes on like the edge because people sit there and get her. Just don't do that. But you can stand there and you consider just on the ground of the parking lot, you know? But it is so pretty. You could take a water tower and a bunch of videos so fine here, there So this is thie her rise in parking garage, not Hampton. Sorry about that, and it's in a really good location. It's right across from, uh, Green Quad, which is a freshman dorm in California dreaming with the restaurant and the honors dorm. This is footage of this guy, obviously, unfortunately, was cloudy. But let me tell you, it's almost never cloudy in South Carolina, and it makes for the most beautiful sunsets like so vibrant. The colors are amazing. It's one of my favorite parts about the South, because in Maryland they're just not as pretty fortunate. Wass cloudy. But this is vintage Assembly Street. You can sort of see the stadium back there, sped it up. Person. Cool effects. Look at all. It's a blue, and it's just that was the water tower. Oh, yeah, you could see the stadium on the left there, and that's pretty much Columbia, South Carolina. This is our soccer practice field. And look at the tree colors. It's just gorgeous. And it also goes to show that like, the fall didn't start until the end of November. Because this is what I that was when I shot this video and just now that leaves are turning. There's greens, which is just the market. That yellow building is green cloud that I was talking about earlier. Beard. Yeah, it's just gorgeous. Hello, everybody. My name is Alec Odell. I am a junior media arts major. University of South Carolina are also trying to get a theatre minor. For those of you who don't know, media arts is like it's very broad. Major could lead you into a much different jobs, like good design video, any picture ending intimation, filming screenwriting class stuff. I'm doing more like the film route with that, and I love it. I love my classes. I love theater classes, but more on that later. Also, I work for the student run TV station soon get on television As she keeping for short, we dio a bunch of different programs looking news show Sports, a Busby type wine, a short films type program in the US of a comedy show, which is what I worked for, Produce and direct. The live sketch comedy shows that we do. The show is called Carolina Tonight. Find us on Facebook like us if you want or hilarious. Very fun. It is the most fun job life, and I can't wait to show you as the best campus on Earth. Now every video that I make is going to start with mediation in your time of camera like this because I just bought myself a brand new camera and then you get one lands because I'm kind of a war until this land has manual focus with your toe back focus. Until if I turned the camera, you know, while I was filming it on camera would be out of focus. You know what? I want to see that. So you saw everything you like this, and then it will go to the footage of whatever I'm talking about. And because enjoy my tour of the universe So the way the meal plan work is as a freshman, you thinking we have one choice and it's just like a certain amount of meal swipes you get per week. However, they letyou slight them at any time, which is really nice. I as a junior, have declining balance, so it's just like money on my card. But I pay for food without taxes, so it's a little bit cheaper than just paying with a credit card, which I really like. I recommend it for when you're not freshen. You can choose your own to really helpful on. DIT tells you exactly how much money you have left, and it's just my favorite.
