Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
It's Claire coming to you live from the University of Vermont. So here you VM to choose where you're going to live, you choose a living and learning community. With these communities, you live with people that have a similar interest to you. You do share that one common interest with other people living near you. So today I'll be taking you inside of the honors college resident talk. Super important topic, because your room is what's gonna be your home when you go to college. I lived in one room for basically my whole life, so it was definitely an adjustment. So I'll talk a little bit about how that adjustment worked as well. Super excited to show you around and we'll talk a little bit more about other communities as we go along. Along with that, there are microwaves and things on each floor in the common rooms. If you just have a little tea that you wanna microwave up, make it warm again, you could just go down the hall to that. So not only are you eating incredible food homemade, you're also getting to talk to the dean on that personal level. So here's the video of the kitchen and room without my face in the way. So every residential hall has a front desk that's staffed and they're here to answer any of your questions and specifically help out with packages cleaning supplies for when your mom calls 30 minutes away saying, surprise, visit, rent out games, etcetera while the buildings air open during the day to UVM students. It's very noisy and warm in there, so I'm not going to stay inside to talk about that. Way have made it up one flight of stairs onto the University Heights North Green Room, kind of like a second story courtyard connecting the two sides of the building. In light of the covert situation, professors were actually teaching some classes out here, since you could remain more socially distant and of course, the outdoor air. Follow me as we walked through the hallway down the hall to the common rooms and such talk a little bit about roommates. Or you could do a little match dot com survey, which the university provides, where you put down what you like to do in your room and what time you wake up. As for getting along with your roommate, it might seem a little tricky at first, but there are different ways that you can manage that. So now you're probably wondering what we're looking at now, and it's just a common room on our floor. They're a little bit less furnished due to cope it, but each floor has at least two of these common rooms. Let's get headed out and let's go see the actual room itself. Now that we're inside the room, I'll show you around a little bit. I live in a private double in U HEIGHTS. So that means that my roommate and I share a bathroom just for ourselves. Not all rooms are like this, but I will talk about what each room does include, no matter where you live. Coming into the living area, we have our fridge and microwave and lots of apples from apple picking the other weekend, each room a gets their own desk. One of the really cool things about our room is that you can see the mountains from the window now coming over to my side of the room. We do have printed in the library in some different college buildings, etcetera. There's smoothie maker T cattle things I highly recommend bringing to college. Now let's go talk about what it's like to live on campus, how it is adjusting to a roommate. Yeah, so now that you've seen a little bit about what a residential hall and room looks like here at UVM, let's talk about what it's like to live on campus. As I mentioned before, UVM has different learning communities, so you already have something in common with the people you live with within each community. One of your classes as a first year will actually be based around that community on a great way of getting to know the people in my building that I'll share that similar interest here in the honors college. Finally, I want to talk about how you make the room feel like home. So I've lived in the same place since I was in kindergarten, and I think it felt like home to me just because I've been there for so long. So it's really important to have different things to make you feel comfortable with where you're living. So as you saw when I showed you around the room, I have different decorations. I my friends all visited my room last year and we're still friends with me, so I don't think it made a difference. So that's just one of the things I brought to college with me that reminds me of home and definitely makes my room more homey and comfortable for May. So that about sums up residential life here atyou, viene while each room, any presidential hall is a little bit different, they all have those necessities that you need closets, dressers, tests, etcetera.
