It's pretty sparse right now because we're in the process of moving out, and then you come this way. The bathroom's right here, which is actually very nice for a college dorm. You get your own bathroom, the light's kind of liquor, But put some artwork up. We have the toilet. Um, a really nice shower, actually. So the faucet is super nice. The water heats up super quickly, and then we walk out here and here is our sink. And this is my roommate, Sara. And this is my side, but it's a really nice it just you have some space down here. It's just a really nice area. And then this is our room. So this is how it came set up. But halfway through the semester, we decided to change it up. And at one point, Kelsey's bed was over here and all this stuff I was over here. But you, Khun, mess around, do whatever you want, but it comes with these dressers. Your bed frame you can either. D'Oh, bunk beds. You can lower your bed or you can raise it whatever you decide to Dio. And our room is a little empty right now because we decided Tio, take some stuff home before the semester's over. We have about two weeks left, so it does seem a little bare. But this is where we keep our food, and we have. You have to bring your own fridge in your own microwave. I actually brought my own composting bin because I I love the environment, and that's something I I choose to do. Also, I brought my own recycling bin, but you can. Right across the hall is a right across the hall is our laundry room, and then down the hall is the trash room, so it's really convenient on our floor. Actually, we have a gym on each floor. There's something different. So on the floor above us, there's like yoga studio on other ones. There's Ping pong, theirs video games. There's a study lounge. It really depends, but so this is University Hall, and there's also a traditional, which is not as fancy, I guess, but still they're all Just very nice dorms And whichever one you pick you're gonna love.

And then you could find with Max, there are always people that are looking for all the people. We are big schools. Don't worry about that. So I'm going to start off with the kitchen. So right now I am in the kitchen and this is paying one of my roommates, and this is our living room. So it's not very decorated on ly because wait, just don't really use it that much. So all of this stuff comes with the apartment people, that table and chair in the couch, so but we really use it that much so just like a sweep, Your reference. If you want to decorate it, go for it. If not, you're probably pretty using that much because, well, I'm barely here, and when I am here, I'm in my room. So it is very spacy. As you can see, I'm going to show you my room. This is my room. So the bed, the desk and this all comes with it. I recommend you get other storage things so that you can put storage and whatever you need to dio that it's a closet very roomy. You might need a shoe rack, whatever. And I recommend you get queen size comforter because that was like a full bad. But the queen size fits the best or full, but I got clean and if it's great and all the decorations So that is the tour. Next time I will show you a fresh new apartment that our freshman dorm so that you can see what it's like for that. And whatever you do, live wasjust has beautiful housing. You will like whatever you get. so welcome to one of the lecture halls. If it's about two hundred and fifty people, there's usually one professor up here with with the agenda, and it's usually for bigger Classes like marketing and microeconomics actually had my micro economics class in here, but it's a really good space for lectures. So if you have one of the more highly populated majors, that's probably where you spend most your time. OK, tell us about this classroom. So this classroom is in the business on public manager of building on. I've got a few economics courses in here marketing, taking management courses on. They can be thirty two fifty students in this classroom. Sometimes there's a few empty seats, depending on how many students there are. Uh, they have sliding way cool. Yeah, there's different light setting really cool. So if you want dark lighting, translating, they have white port side, which is really cool gives you more options if you want to show different things while doing something on the big board. I like the round tables. They're pretty cool on. They have these charging station more personal interaction between someone and like that's how I met one of my current friends. We were just sitting there one day, way started talking, and now we sit next to each other every class. And we walked together after classes, and we're actually in the room next to together. So yeah, welcome to the business building. And this is that pretty typical class size for business classes. Unless it's a lecture, but yeah, kind of fancy? No. This so class. Sizes are different. Some of these air not curved on. Some of them don't have the two seaters. So it's more like just Rose or kids. I prefer this one because, like I said, you could get that personal interaction with someone. Welcome to the Westchester rec Center. It's pretty sweet.

Walking overhears the basketball courts from the upper view. The really impressive on DH. They get a lot of use, and then over on the other side, there is a sack report, which is awesome. It's used in winter, and you could play volleyball in there if you want it and you can just rent a ball there you have. Their balls are free, but you just have to pick one. Over here we have the weight room, which is usually full in the afternoon, and I didn't have my camera very stable because it was super awkward videotaping all these college guys lifting weights. But it's brand new. There's so many things you can do pretty much. Anything you could want is there, and it's really impressive, and a lot of people love it now and then.

But I just wanted to talk about the work load here a little bit before I go into the tour. Calm. So I feel like every school you're going to have a big for glowed that wasjust there. All the professors are so nice. Now, I really want you to succeed and always reach out to them, Tio, because they are like, Oh, my professors are good. What I recommend Dio is really gets into your professors e mail them groups of them in classroom, first day, first or second day, and we will get to know them so that they know your face because I don't really help you with succeeded. So for me, I love coming to the library because it helps me focus better. So there's like, quiet parts of life. And like the reports, right now, like this is like a part where people can, like, talk a little bit full. Mind if you're talking so behind your computers where you can turn out anything. But we do turn out something you need your student ID and then you just swipe it, and then it'll print out. So This is a big portion of the library. A lot of people do their work in here much, so right now we're going to the other side. It's like the help desk in case you need any help finding books. So now this is the other part of your life.

So they start if you want. Welcome the West Chester University. Hey, guys. So that was the end of our tour. I hope you enjoyed it. I know you would love Westchester if you could see it with your own eyes, but I just want to leave you with some advice. So as a freshman graduating freshman, it's super important. I'LL give you five six. So take care of yourself. That's one of the most important things you can do as a college student, whether that's getting the right food. Exercising, resting, sleeping more, just you need to take care of yourself. And it's a very different environment than living at home with your parents. Two. You have to work hard your freshman year. That's really important, because if you start off poorly, it'll be really hard to gain momentum as you go through college career. So make sure to try your hardest when you get here. Another thing is, save your money if you can. As a college student, you hear all the stories about college students being broke. It's true, but you can change that if you save your money, so don't go out as much as you think you should, um, but just keep track of your money and earn some, if you can. I got a on campus job this year, so that's really been helping me save up some money. Fourth, definitely one hundred percent joins them clubs. It's super hard to make friends in college if you don't engage so joins in clubs, it's you're surrounded by people with similar interests. You get to do something you love, and it enhances your entire college experience. So it's a really good idea to do that. And we have a million clubs here, so you have a huge variety to pick from and fit. You need to focus on you. Focus on what you need. If you have anxiety, take care of that. If you have depression, take care of that. There's so many mental illnesses that go unnoticed at college campuses, but you need to know what you need as a student and for yourself. And if you take care of yourself, you can enjoy everything. And Westchester has so many offerings to make your experience the best. I hope to see you on Westchester's campus.
