So I'm in my costume design lab right now, and we are discussing costumes for a scene based on the three D collage I made last week. Labs. They're just really cool. It's a collaborative time where we have these big workspaces. Teo, do all our projects. So it is dinner time here in Wyoming. And I am at the student union right now with my friend Reena. Say hello and we're gonna grab some dinner. We know what our dining options here. So in the union you have the food court as well as a convenience store Food court has been expressed. Grassroots Also, Queiroz, pita pit. And the convenience store is just use the convenience store. Yeah, that's a start. But a lot of options you hear about preferred place. I personally always loaded Pan Express because it's always open as well as I love Chinese. He doesn't. I normally just like, cook my own meals at home. But I'm here and I'm going for panda because I mean, order Well, let's go get our food. Okay, so I'm back in the engineering moving for my French class and as I'm walking in that I would tell you just a little bit about the student professor relationship. So I'll start by saying that at my last school professors handed to me of it detached, and they wouldn't even bother learning our names. But here is a lot more personable with the students. Actually bother to learn Our names are learning styles and just work with us to make sure that we're understanding what we're learning. And they help us with any problems we're having, and it's just a really great personal relationship. So now we're gonna go check out study space in the dorms, which are all fish balls. Yet as we're walking there, Hannah ordered from your favorite things and least favorite things about living in the dorms. So what I really like about living in the dorms, I meant like a flood of people of all backgrounds come from all different places. So that's pretty awesome. Akane would be the limited space. We don't get her own bathroom. Looking around six on and then hanging on the official has been pretty fun are just. It's kind of like a communal living space. We'll check it out. So official here is a short walk from all of the dorm rooms, and it's just a closed in space. Hit the lights. A nice relaxing green with somewhat doodles on the white board. Yes, there's a TV. There are sitting spaces. So our fish end up. But my roommate and I have been going to different officials on different floors just because we're so bored. But WeII spent a good amount of our weekend official just because he can use it for study. Or sometimes people get together to watch the bachelor like you could do anything. So if you're tired of your dorm, definitely come out to fish. So do a lot of people hang out here is like a community place. Mostly most of the time, there are people in the fish balls except for during like, super class hours. So, like right now is around lunchtime. So there's not many people know about here. Probably it around like five. O'clock is when people start gathering in here, hanging out, watching TV, doing homework, no And now we're going to take a look at U dub this freshman dorm's. However, I don't live in the dorms, so we're gonna pay a visit to my friend Hannah. Let's check out your dorm. It's kind of small. So they're our best to get this all in here. But it's a small space we walk in here's the sink and mirror area. Yeah, and then what else? We have two beds. You, Khun, lost your beds if you want. My roommate and I have our bed soft it all the way up. We've got the many furs that TV, the food thanh and tons of storage space. So you remains not here. But how did you two end up? His roommates was so thin or I went to school with my roommate. And so we actually did the mutual selection process online. So we both went online and we got a pick our dorm room this year, which is pretty cool. So we chose for floor back in time now. So you dub honors your choices? Yes. What you choose this year's. Actually, I think the first year that they said you could pick your own floor, so that's really cool. Any essentials that you think everybody needs in their dorm. One essential. I think that anyone could agree on his snacks and my snack drawer right here. What you got? I have good all bars. Popcorn. You know the essentials, Tio. Oh, and Clorox wipes. That was what I would say. We're the only essentials. Pretty much, you know, keep it clean without happened. Oh, yeah. Well, thank you so much for letting us see your room. So it is Friday night here in Laramie, and I'm here with Eva and Ellie. And we are camping because when you live in Wyoming, you go camping. It's just what you d'oh their mountains everywhere. And how can you not take advantage of this beautiful landscape? Ellie, when was last time you went camping? Last week. Case in point. So this is one of the things that we do for fun out here. And if you come to school here next year, maybe you could join us. Say bye, everybody. Peace out, trout. I got to go with blue beat So right now I am in between frat row and sorority row. Front rows over there, Start. Zero is over there. And to my left and right are frat mall and sorority mole, which are about his grassy as it gets on campus here at U Dub. So a lot of teams use this area in practice. Clubs have parties here. Okay, I just walked over to the other one where there is nobody on the field, so you can see that, See how big it is. Like I said, there's not a lot of grass on campus. There's proxies pasture. And then there's frat mall and sorority mall, and that's about it. But surrounding we do have a lot of parks and obviously loads of hiking in camp ground, so we have So it's a beautiful Thursday night and later me and I'm here with my friend Eva. Say, hey, Ava and Eva tell the people what we are doing. Speak, wear swing dancing, which is probably the most popular thing to do at night in Laramie. Most popular thing to do during the day is hike. So at night, once you've tired your legs out, you just got to go do it some more. Honestly, we go start using a lot, but this is like a city wide thing. The kids, the adults, students, everybody goes dancing. This's actually my first time, so I'm super stoked. We're gonna have a good laugh every time. Well, it's a chilly day here in windy Wyoming, so I'm going to avoid all outdoor videos and just focus on the inside of buildings. Right now, I'm in my state costuming design lab, where I am working on my three dimensional collage here, very excited about this project. In between classes today, I'll just be working on homework, especially my lab work getting coffee here and there. And I think most students during the day spend three or four hours and class A two to three hours studying. Well, we like to go swing dancing, have campfires and just hang out on campus. There's a lot of activities for students here that we love taking advantage of, so hopefully I get to show Okay, so I'm back in the union in one of my favorite places on campus, which is the basement of the union, and its just got these super comfy pouches and fireplace seating areas. It's just a great place to bring food, bring home where just hang and study. There's actually like barely anybody here right now, which actually makes it perfect for studying and just having quiet. I love it down here and when it gets colder out, only down here a lot. I think every scores has at least one place where it's ah home, away from home and the basement of the evening is that for so also in the basement of the there is the gardens, which is a bar, which I obviously can't go to. But if you're of age in, you enjoy alcohol. Yeah, there's also a game back plane. It's cool. All that good music, people having a good time, a good place to him.
