This is John A. He's a friend of mine. Right now we're on our way to see F f. Yeah. The other one is called the Sharper Factory, also known as the ratty. So we've kind of made it our thing, and we go every week with a couple friends, so let's go check out. So I wanted to take a minute as we watched the lovely jen this pipe into the brainy, willing to explain how meals work for freshmen. So as a freshman, you are either on the twenty or the flags for sixty. What twenty means is you get twenty mils per week. Otherwise you basically lose them and you also get points, which can be spent at different types of dining halls around campus. The meal credit is worth eight dollars and twenty cents. It's called for sixty because that's how many meal credits you get for the year. So you get two hundred thirty your first semester and then the other two hundred thirty years. Second semester, when this planet's what's most recommended for most students who are not athletes and who don't need to be eating three meals a day. Yeah, it's a really great plan for most students. You do also get two hundred and fifty points to use at the other dining halls. These are meals that do roll over, so if you don't use all of your meals first semester, they will come back second. Master, welcome back all show you a little bit later. Reason I want to tell you this is because it is probably the dining hall that I go to the most also because I live above it, which I don't even have to leave the building to get food, and this place is open until, like two a. M on most days. So you don't show your fear returning, so let's go check it out. Starting off, I did just step out of the dining hall so you could see what it's like to come in. It's a little annoying, but you get used to it when you walk into the dining hall. When you go through this little and trends room and then on your left and then all the way on the opposite side of the dining hall on the right, we're just little study rooms. It opens at eleven a. M and closes at two a. M. So you khun, basically chill here all day if you wanted. Let's go take a look at the food, so first up we have the club bar I don't know if I'm pronouncing that right. This is full from lunch and then for dinner every night. There is, like a different items, so this could be like pasta night or curry night sometimes. There's some sushi, some noodles and issue some alternate dining options for you in the corner. Here we have the coffee and tea station, so there's coffee, tea, hot chocolate in the center back. There's all these drinks machines, so you have vitamin water, ice, and then this machine, which I love. It has so many different drinks, like you just have to check it out. It's so great a minute made juice machine and then on the opposite side to the It's like the same style fridge we saw before was just filled with some different things. So many to go salad and drinks, and then next to that's where the bar was on the other side. You have a little speciality, uh, sandwich bar, and that changes on the weekends. I believe it is a sundae bar and then the pizza, which is always there. I am when I'm really hungry, and I just forgot I didn't have dinner. Finally, we have a salad bar so you can make your own salad. It's nice, but not my favorite Silent. That's at another location that you'LL have to figure out once you're here and then coming up to the main Passion Register. There's some chips and snacks, and then smack dab in the center of the dining hall is just little fruits, milk and yogurt station, and my personal favorites here are the oranges. I didn't eat oranges for, like, two or three years, and then I had one here. No, I was in love, and now I'm addicted to them. So now he's come back to where we began, so I hope you enjoyed that tour.
