Studying in the U.S. — Life on the Campus
(music playing) CHRISTINA SEYFRIED:
Hi guys. I’m back again. Today, I’m going to talk
about life on campus. Living on campus is an essential part of your whole academic experience. Students live together, study
together, and eat together. So this creates a whole unique
environment to share intellectual thought, but also just to have fun. Basically, you live on campus
in a single, a double, or a triple. And you share a bathroom on your floor.
Honestly, I was really nervous when I heard I have a roommate,
but it turned out really well. I love my roommate.
We are like sisters. And she has been an essential part
of my whole academic experience. Also, community is an essential
part of your whole academic experience and your well-being, and also
your success at college. Therefore, colleges provide
resident advisors, short RAs, who live with you on the floor.
And they care for you, for your well-being and your safety.
Next year, I’m also going to be an RA and I’m really excited
about this opportunity. When living on campus,
you normally receive a meal plan, and you can eat at one of the
dining rooms on campus. And I can tell you,
the food is delicious. They have a variety of foods,
such as vegan or vegetarian or gluten-free. So don’t worry. You will
have a lot to choose from. Extracurricular activities are a very
important part of undergraduate studies. Campus offers sports, theater, and
other things, like baking clubs, for example. You can also found your own club.
Next year, I’m going to start my own club, called United Nations Academic Impact,
and I’ll have events on campus on human rights, literacy, etc. So this
is another thing I’m very excited about. Also, campus offers a lot of different
things, like events. They bring concerts. They bring DJs, et cetera.
So don’t worry, you won’t get bored. (music playing)
