Go there because my favorite gas station down here on the takeoff. But that's another gas station right there. You've got a proper job right there. They're always hiring in some of these dominoes appear. They're always hiring delivery drivers. So if you got a car and you're looking for a job, so go ahead and apply right there. The border Mexican restaurant went in there the other day. Amazing. Has some carne asada so amazing. Yeah, that's definitely a place arm. Recommend visiting. They take wolf books. So there's a difference between books and down and all. There's dining dollars. It's like pre loaded that comes with your meal. Clean wolf books You have to put the money on, but they accept books. The good thing about with books is there no taxes? So your meal will be tax free up here? Yeah, I'm about to take shots of my favorite gas station. It's called was the Chevron, but we call it. Okay. You guys saw right now in our gym, someone give you a little toward it. It's nothing big. Nothing. Major is cute, though. I will say he's still working here. So this is like the wait with the area here. So you are the cardio. So this is like the cardio equipment and everything you got on like a roach. Treadmills are here than they have. I think you call those ellipticals, and then you have the bikes and everything in the front upstairs, we have a track where we have more ellipticals and stuff like that. And then right there is one of our basketball courts. And then in the back, we also have another basketball court. Let's see. I'm going to go show you guys the yoga Romans. We kind of booze. You got yoga rooms? I don't know. No. The university that I got a yoga room. Maybe I'm sure him, but they might. It's gonna take me a moment to get there. So this one second for me. And like I said, I did work here. So it was a fun place to work. Right? There is a man locker room for students and then the female is further down here. We have vending machines right here. That TV right there because they were real fancy, and they call it the Yuet University Recreation. So we're just there. Okay, so we're here is our yoga rooms, yoga classes on class and stuff like that. And then right here, this TV shows the schedule of what I was being hosted in what days and stuff like that. So yeah, thats our gym and I'm a few coming west, Georgia. This is definitely a place to get a good place to come. No work out, you know, get a little sweat on But that being said since Charleston is kind of country is I think it does affect your experience is going to school here. It doesn't affect it negatively or positively. I think it just It was a lot of things into perspective, like, for example, I come from, I want to say a city type setting, but I do come from somewhere that's heavily populated. So coming to kill us and it was kind of a shock to me because this is kind of country to me. But at the same time, I think it's good on my educational experience because it allows me to focus more on my education versus going out and party. And even though I am in college now, that's kind of cliche. But, yeah, I think it will expect your experience here, but I don't think I'll be deferred for everybody. But for the most part, it is a great experience. It does affect it in a positive way. Some guys. So right now I'm on my way to the library. But I'm about to walk you guys through the TOC, which is the Technology Learning Center. A lot of classes are held in here like interdisciplinary classes. So, like English psychology, history of how many classes in this building. So this is just a preview of the It's actually really cute. This that on that side and then on the side, it's like a little market. So if you want some juice, I'm with Asia again. You're out of she about to get some juice? Yeah. This is the COC has three levels. I'm not sure if you can see. A lot of them have. Three has to. But there's a second level up there. Yes, multiple classes. And here they have a history. I've had art, and here I've had English. So you have a lot of classes that are offered No, You have fun. Okay, Also, I'm at Harborview right now. Our review is like an apartment type style dorm. So, as you see, they got a kitchen stove. They got the Cantonese, They got my baby. My battery's about that. They got the dishwasher. They've got a fridge. And then right here, they had their room, So I'm skipping both. Just the living room. No, my girl's heo. Just I live a room, you see, Is keeping a little I don't know what you, Carlos, but streamer is like decorations. Okay, I'm going to show you what it would look like. I'm not gonna go in their room because you know, I'm not nosing, but I am. But I'm not gonna go in here. This is like what the rooms look like. Then they had their own little bathroom area, and then there's the bathroom. Then they got a little cabinet. Don't look what I got here, but yeah. So this is what our purview looks like. This is one of the options housing options When you do come to school here, Mostly the upperclassmen. This is Carol, across one of various affordable off campus housing day showing you guys my first. Good. Yet one of the differences between having on campus housing and ofthe house. It's biggest one for me was they're the twelve month lease with off campus housing, whereas one campus housing has a date basically gotta go, which is really inconvenient if you have a job or you may be taking summer classes. In that case, you would have to reapply. How? Here. Get some giant, you know, guess, people. Also TV included. Okay, drink other excessive grease and decorations. Wass. A big part not at work done. What? Yes, but we got this kitchen. Ignore this. The kitchen is Washington. Oh, Spain. Here. Run the story thing. Right the best. This. Nor someone a minute, a little messy. Wrong. You get a full size bed, which be great to queen size bed, but definitely full size bed. What comes with the room is the bed, the desk and two dressers like this. I put the mother my bed to have in the closet playing his face, Michael. No. Also that which is be my eyes. Hey, guys. So right here is the infamous Sammy. If you come the way, Georgia, you are going to hear about Sammy. When I say you, Sami's is the best, Like they have a bar and grill right next door that's open late. Also, when they also deliver and then the gas station is right next to a Sammy the owner. He is just really cool. Very, very cool. He's the India man. Um, amazing. They're all really nice in here, so I would definitely come to this gas station if you're going anywhere on camp or around. Can't get anything there very often, right there's the waffle house, and they're right. There is the crystals. So that's pretty much all that's on Maple Street. There's a dollar to the knowledge in a dollar general further down the street subway. But, yeah, that's too far for me to be walking and it's caught outside. But you all know what a dollar general in the family but that's further down, and that's pretty much Maple Street. On the other side of Maple Street. There is a food depot, CVS and then another dollar general. So yeah, that's pretty much what's all around the university. Further out, there's more but immediately surrounding And yeah, so I'm just gonna ask you a couple questions about the campus. So, um, what can you start with introducing yourself and, you know, explain a little bit about yourself and why you came to school? OK, My name is Stada to us. You okay? Data deadly. And I am art student. Um, why? I came to wish Georgia. Well, at first I was gonna go to, like, actual art school, but I talk with my art teacher from high school. She was like, the best educations can come from art school, but it's good to go to a liberal arts school. So I think where's Julia was, like, the only school that I felt like I was good enough for me and in the art department on my look amazing. So I was like, I was like, Hey, you know, I think I like company, So that's just George cut So if you can just describe a little bit of the student body at the school. Um oh, student body. Well, when I first got here, we were freshman year. I feel that we were all, like, very close, mate, because, Well, you know, when you go to orientation, you need a lot of people that come in with. So when I got here, it was like I was a stranger to everybody. So I feel like, um overall, we were like a close meet any, You know, over time, you become closer with other people that their group with its always like. I feel like it's like a family without your way. Yeah. Basic. Like we're like a big family. Great. You remember that weird intention? You Okay? So what's your major and describe the academic climate on campus? Well, I'm an art major. Like I said it before, but I am an art education. Major song wants to be an art teacher. So home. The comics of being art, it's student is really is not hard. But you have to be very consistent when it comes to making deadlines with certain things. Because if you come into the school without having the right scores for was like city. You have to make sure you take it, take your get okays and wants you to get that out the way released like just getting through because, like the classes, not really not hard. They're very inactive, and I really love the studio classes. So you're taking studios are classes and education classes, so it was like it's a lot. But if you really like because you stink, really not that bad, so that's good. So what's your favorite and least favorite part of being on campus or at the school? And why? Okay, So my favorite part about being on campus Well, I'm not on campus right now because I live off campus. But when I was on campus, I feel like it was the stuff that they had one on in our dorms or living resonates because sometimes they have, like, Nice where we all come together and, like, watch TV together or they have, like, a little certainty. It's like the IRA's hosted whatever I feel like that's one of the best parts. And when you live on Cape is being are stupid. Sometimes you have to light work late in our studio. So you have to make sure that if you're going to stay overnight, make sure like you have somebody with, you know, with you when you go home. Yeah, but I used to say our review. Yeah, the baboon. It was like, right there really wasn't that bad. So the best apartment at least part is, uh I don't know. I guess it got too much Yeah. It cost a lot of Lenny. It does. So that's why I moved off campus. And then, like, sometimes, like, oh, you have everything right here. I mean, which is true, because you have the you have the dining halls and you have classes like there. Whatever you got, library. Right? Right in the center of campus. What is like being off campus? Me on your own and, like not have paid so much for for Like what? Room board for? Only three more in for a meal plan. Thank you. Barely want to use the food. It's okay, but not what you want. It's always like I rather say, Okay, cook my own food in my own place does good like things like refreshment. It's mandatory to stay on campus. True. And it's mandatory to have a meal plan. So it's like you don't really have much of choice at that point until you become like a sophomore and then you can go in. Do what you please because I know when I became yourself straight argue, I want todo. I went straight there, but I do. I do regret not living in a in either The center port bout it out didn't really want to live, but either the hopes of Singapore. Hey, really, what university police like they were okay, but he was like you met more people when you're a the oath, instant appoint. So because they're considered, like, the freshman dorm? Yeah, it's always like and then a lot happens on this side of campus and like a lot of activities happen on this on the east side of campus. So it's like in there everybody over there with you on the west side of campus, You got like one Teo. What? William There. So you get so conditioned to like stating your like not. I mean, you're not meeting nobody. Not really going, because I barely went to the game. I think I'm going to the game room. When Kobe came like my tio e never really going there. Like I've never really Actually, I was like, Okay, let me go meet my friend outside of my door. And it was never like that. It was like, Okay, like, if I see you. Of course I got.
