Dartmouth freshman dorm room tour
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Hey, what's up? Hello? It's actually June 2nd and I'm leaving tomorrow. So this is the last night that I'm actually going to ever spend in this room. I'm almost done packing, but I realized that I've never done a room tour, especially first year dorm room tour. So I thought, Why not do an empty room tour? Because that's what you get when you get into a dorm anyways. So I'm actually in a one room double, which is when you have one room and you have two beds in it. I also think this is probably the most common type of first years. So I have my side of the room and my I have a roommate, so her side of the room is there, and that's probably why you're going to see her side of the room, because I don't respect their privacy. Then here is basically all my stuff and all of all, the one room double was minus pretty big. So it really is the luck of the draw, which I won't talk about later about, like, first, your housing picking housing my experiences housing at Dartmouth. I've taken off a lot of layers of sheets, but I used to have, like, two layers of sheets, plus this fitted thing and what really did it for me. I actually really like this bed like it was pretty comfortable, like it might not be what you're used to at home, and it definitely wasn't because my bed was a lot bigger than this. So the next feature of the room is this bedside table. I really get kind of just used this as like a nightstand, because we don't have a nightstand and I wasn't going to go buy a nightstand. So when I wake up in the morning, the first thing I see my desk originally the desk was actually supposed to be placed facing that wall. I actually really like this because it kind of gives me more like open view of everything makes me more inclined to do my work. So in every room there's one desperate person. The desk has three drawers and this pullout thing underneath, and then there's like a surface which is pretty long and large so it can definitely fit our yourself. It has a little bit of a rock, but there's a little bit of ah, unevenness on the chair leg when I first came in and I was really, really comfortable. If you remember, actually had a fair bit of like decorative, nice stuff on here, there's actually a lot that you can do with decorating. Is that part to hang my jackets? And I only really use like, up to here. So a lot of my stuff are actually stored underneath the bet. What really came in handy were these two crates which I think I got from bed bath and beyond, like in the first week of school. Our next is I guess the most unique feature of this room about s O what my room actually is called is a one room double with 1/2 bath. I had to do really out bed, walk across the room, use bathroom, use the sink and then leave. There's a raft, and then there's another rack behind the door. There's like a little hook and that there's a saying You have to buy your own soap, though this is actually a radiator. Another quick fact about the bathroom is that you don't actually have to clean it. Every building as custodian, they actually come like once a week to clean up for you. Okay, so now I'm gonna try to explain how the Dartmouth housing process works, and I'm gonna start with first year housing. So the housing community, there's six of them. Everyone on your floor will be in your house and community your first year in the first year housing. What they do is they try to get all the first years to occupy one building, and then there's like nine buildings of just first years. Think it's really great how how they separate the first years from everyone else. First years feel more at home A Dartmouth bonding with your floor that illegally it literally the first day. They were really the first people that you meet and some of my closest friends here are from my floor of a cotton house. I would say that my first year housing experience was a big win. Beautiful room, wonderful floor, great great location like center campus prime. I'm really, really friendly and willing Thio incorporate with each other and live together. I'm really, really glad that Dartmouth hasn't, like, enforced for sure, housing thing. I think this is why I like I was almost going to not make a room tour video.
