The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I just wanted to share some fun facts about our history that I found on N. C. State's website yourself that these were really interesting and I had heard a few of them before, but something that I didn't know. I had her before that we were originally pink and blue and understand that's a really interesting color combination and completely different from red and block. As time went by, the name Wolf Pack came from a student publication newspaper on campus that refer to our football team as an unruly pack of wolves. So another fun fact, not really about the history, but just about our school. Like for me, I feel like my major isn't really that difficult. In my opinion, it's not that the class is a really that much harder that the teachers aren't that much stricter. It's not really that the difficulty with college, in my opinion, is that you've completely uprooted your life and you're living somewhere else, and it's not like you need your parents around like help you. You won't need to spend a lot of time on another thing that's really different whenever you come to colleges that you only have class probably twice a week, and it's probably an hour and 15 minute class. You just need to figure out what class you really do need to like, be reading the text book every night and like working really hard at home on and what costs you might not need to work as hard at home on. So how much of your test count towards a great is that? 20% is a 10% like what is the percentage that test count towards your overall grades? That you know how important tests are and what are the big portions of your grades like homework is a huge portion than you know. You need to work really hard on your homework and make sure to get good grades. Same within person classes, some classes you'll know like I got this. There's definitely causes that I've avoided taking here, such as chemistry, because that's really difficult. Physics, those type of things, like Super Matthew super science classes aren't really my thing. So we actually have two camps is we haven't been campus that has almost everything on it. Then we have Centennial campus that I am on a lot, and I live on and on sentinel campus. We have to use buses to get around, which is pretty common, But the bus can take like an hour to make its full circle, depending on which one you get on your trying to get quickly from Centennial domain, I recommend the engineering bus, which is currently the number three, because it goes the bosses you can get between campus and like seven minutes, so the campus is pretty big. You can have anything from a auditorium room filled with tons of people, and the professor will not know your name. So the class size convey Ari as well as for, like a big campus of people. You'll find that you'll recognize people on campus that you cross paths with a lot, but you'll never know everybody like it's not that kind of smell, like the small town I grew up in, like there's tons of people, but I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. So another question was what I recommend living on campus or off campus, so I haven't lived off campus. Just because I find that it's easier to work out my financial aid if I'm living on campus rather than like waiting on to come back in, trying to get the money to pay for an off campus housing. If you're a freshman, you're required to live on campus here. If for some reason like if you're transferring in, this is your first year or if you just want to be really involved on campus, I recommend living on campus because it will put you right in there with everything that's going on. So I think it's really good to live on campus, but a lot of people do you move off campus there. I just chose to stay on campus because that's what works. So I'm just going a lot of comments about how is the campus since so it was spread out. You get used to it, you'll figure it out really quickly. We ended up on the far side of campus that, like some softball fields, and we're trying to get back to tally, and just that it was such a foreign thing. The biggest thing is thought, you just can't have like, 15 minutes in between classes. If you're coming from Centennial Campus two main campus, you want to make sure you have, like, 30 to 45 minutes to get in between there just in case. I've been a few times, but I just haven't really been in like a friend group where people go out all the time. You know, in my eyes I think that Greek life is really big here. Like there's broad parties, of course, all that stuff, game days, a really big thing for us. There's a club for it and you'll meet people in your major because once you get, like, really into your major, you're probably have classes with the same people. I like Teoh go to the football games like it said those really big. So that's really fun that the Sabres in Raleigh, there's tons of things you could do it. So if you're into the party scene and all that, there's definitely that if you want to go downtown and go to bars and something is definitely that if you want to go to the tailgate, there's suddenly a really fun tailgate. If you want to do things that aren't partying, we have tons without as well. It's just a really good round up of everything at and see say so.
