Sometimes they can be pretty difficult because it's something you never study if you're not interested. But I've had no bad experiences. The professors are awesome here way. They all have office hours released, even touch it. A lot of give you their number, right? Nurse Elvis that you reach out to them whenever you need. They're super understand.

But what's nice is this area eyes less for academics and more for like Wake forest traditions. So there's a ton of different events that go on here, I think, just a few weeks. The project pumpkin on, and that is one week brings, like underprivileged. You don't live in areas to retreat to a course campus. I'm indifferent. Student organizations will set up like Shaq.

The camera actually die Little filming. So just a quick little tour of the stairs. Oh, so you're here. It's a great resource that everyone has access to grand now. So one of the really cool thing going for us is the intramural sports program. A ton of people get involved in it, and it's pretty much just they unorganized Lee for a pickup games where, at the end of the season, you have playoff champion and it's really fun because there's a lot of athletic kids that come to you in school in Campo, this poor anymore. It's their right here, working hard, just having fun plans in sports and degree. But it could stay active, stay in shape. And Jim is a good location for that. June is completely free to everyone to use open, like twelve hours a day, almost tore my fair parts away Oh, I didn't see that. The lottery is a great place. You get worked on use Resource is meeting with friends for a project. I didn't escape from the craziest day today. College life. One of my library is the study of Was just like these. You could rent out for free on a daily basis. I know you have your own credible. Is that cage of playing one library or anywhere else you might see you see, And you're able to really grind focus right here and is a resource and that resource. So is this like your full total library Enjoy? So this is one of the main floors of library, one that I do work on often. It's right above the gym.

It's a quiet place. That's Alan. It's a really good place to get a lot of work done quickly. So this is a different part of library. It's called the Stacks. It's also pretty much dead silent, and it's a really good place where, if you want to get work done, if you do research project that books are read right nearby, they're accessible. Librarians are often walking up and down the aisles readyto help. I'm looking for a thing like that on. It's definitely cool place to study because it's so quiet, you get a lot of work. This is another common area of the library. It's up on the sixth floor, one of the great things, the library's so they're so spacious.

Was there really convenient part of it? This is just another room in the stacks where a lot of people like this study with nice of peace and quiet. And I'd say the general feeling around campus is most people do stable library People like myself prefer to study in their rooms, but it's more of a it's personal preference and I wouldn't want to library cat.

That is your right down the hall way. Come to my room, other right at the end and a double. Um, I lived with one of my best friends my whole last year, and we chose living double together. But singles are definitely available after freshman near, if you want into the way that, um, rooming works. Freshman year is people are randomly paired into doubles, and it has the random you can choose anyone else, but I kind of like that way, because all the halls, just a mixture of like a bunch of people, you get all of these detectives and you find your friends and my roommate. Freshman year, I wasn't the biggest fan of hand. We got along pretty well. We're finding mates and last year on campus still from they worked out how we play on DH.
