Honors Housing at Michigan State University

(instrumental guitar) – I chose honors housing because … – I wanted to live on an honors floor. – I wanted to live on an honors floor. – I wanted to be around
other honors students and I figured it’d be a really
cool way to meet people. – I felt like it would just
be a really good experience for me in terms of building community right when I get to MSU. – I had sort of heard that they were probably a little better in terms of like having a stronger community. Probably a little bit more
academically oriented. – I really wanted to be
in a community of students that had similar goals and
expectations for themselves but also, you know, like to be involved and engaged with campus. – So I take living in
the honors for people who definitely have a lot more
respect for other people’s space and so they respect quiet hours a lot more so I say it’s more of
a cohesive environment because we all have similar interests. – Like, ninety percent of my friends here are from the floor. There’s just every major you can imagine, I think every college is represented here. – Honors floors are…
they’re just lot of fun. Because we have similar
goals and we’re similar types of students we get along really well and do a lot of fun things together. – From like, going to the
Izzone, just hanging out. Almost every night people
will go and get late night at the cafeteria together,
which is really cool to do. – You have a lot of floor
events because of our RA’s and stuff so we’ll go to
Wells Hall and see a movie. We’ve done like sports activities together and things like that but
the majority of the stuff we do is super impromptu
so it might be like everybody just hanging out and someone jump in and is
like, “late night!?” And then everyone gets up
and goes to late night. Or, one person might have
something they’re going to and then they post in our Facebook group, “Hey I’m going to XYZ…
Anybody want to come?” And then before you know it you have a group of people who are going. So it’s really cool that
way because even if somebody is not particularly interested
in what you want to do they might just be curious to learn more. (guitar instrumental)
