[00:00:07.080]Hi guys, my name is Bonnie.
[00:00:08.340]I'm gonna be showing you around one of our
[00:00:10.040]traditional style residence halls here on campus.
[00:00:12.720]It's gonna be you and a roommate in one room
[00:00:15.050]and then how many roommates you have varies
[00:00:17.180]from whether you're in traditional or suite style.
[00:00:19.480]Right now you're in Abel.
[00:00:20.840]There's Abel, Sandos, Harper, Schramm
[00:00:23.150]and Smith, as well as Selleck.
[00:00:25.050]Those are all gonna be traditional style dorms.
[00:00:28.070]You're gonna have a bed like this that'll either
[00:00:29.770]be all the way down or you can have it lofted.
[00:00:32.730]And then something that's special to traditional style
[00:00:34.880]residence halls is that you can have it cabin style,
[00:00:37.290]so that's gonna hit kind of right about my hip here.
[00:00:39.710]Every residence hall room will also
[00:00:41.900]have a nice closet like this.
[00:00:44.780]You'll have three different levels that
[00:00:47.120]you can hang clothes on.
[00:00:48.520]These drawers right here as well as a medicine cabinet.
[00:00:51.690]Everyone is gonna have their own desk, which is really nice.
[00:00:54.280]These are built in.
[00:00:55.320]You don't have to worry about bringing a chair
[00:00:56.690]or anything with you, we've got that covered.
[00:00:58.710]Every single desk area is also gonna have
[00:01:00.660]a bunch of outlets so that you can plug in
[00:01:02.460]your phone, your hairdryers, anything like that.
[00:01:05.510]Everyone's gonna get their own refrigerator.
[00:01:08.360]Lots of room, you can see, it's bigger
[00:01:10.510]than a typical mini fridge, which is super nice.
[00:01:12.640]And it's got the freezer on top.
[00:01:14.820]All of our rooms also come with a
[00:01:17.030]trash can and a recycling bin.
[00:01:18.800]There's gonna be a kind of garbage room
[00:01:21.150]on every single floor that you can dump
[00:01:23.180]either your waste or your recyclables in.
[00:01:25.240]We've got a thermostat and that's gonna be
[00:01:27.320]in every room, which is super nice.
[00:01:28.840]So you and your roommate have just gotta
[00:01:30.440]make sure that you two are on the same page
[00:01:32.050]of how hot or how cold you want it.
[00:01:33.910]The coldest it goes is down to 65 and it'll go
[00:01:36.670]all the way up to 80 degrees if you like it that warm.
[00:01:39.760]The same set up as your roommate's side.
[00:01:43.250]You guys are all going to have the desk, the chair,
[00:01:45.600]this bed that is adjustable and then the closet as well.
[00:01:50.990]Hi everyone I'm Tori and I'm gonna be
[00:01:52.480]showing you around a traditional residence
[00:01:54.150]style community bathroom and shower.
[00:01:55.770]So we'll come right in over here first, to the shower area.
[00:01:59.508]You do have a locking door so you
[00:02:01.680]have the space to go in first.
[00:02:03.100]You come on in here, and you'll be able to see
[00:02:05.060]the shower, and there is a curtain for you
[00:02:07.110]and there's even little spaces to put like shampoo.
[00:02:09.600]Super private space for you.
[00:02:10.787]And if we come over here, you're gonna
[00:02:12.690]be able to see the sinks that we have
[00:02:14.060]in the community bathroom and showers.
[00:02:15.760]Plenty of space to put any makeup or
[00:02:17.670]anything you need to use to get ready.
[00:02:19.590]Gotta make sure you look good.
[00:02:20.760]There's plenty of mirrors too, so there's
[00:02:22.300]even more around the corner right here.
[00:02:24.020]And then back behind me you're going to
[00:02:26.090]have, obviously, the bathroom area.
[00:02:29.907]Our bathroom areas are cleaned every
[00:02:32.270]single day for one whole hour.
[00:02:34.300]We keep it nice and clean for you right here at Nebraska.
[00:02:37.700]So guys right now I'm gonna show you
[00:02:39.220]what a little lounge area is gonna look like
[00:02:41.740]in our traditional residence halls.
[00:02:43.550]Every floor of the residence halls are gonna
[00:02:45.690]have this lounge area available for you guys,
[00:02:48.610]so that's awesome.
[00:02:49.560]First thing you've got just a nice little table
[00:02:52.110]where you can come and study with your friends,
[00:02:53.970]especially late at night, you don't have to
[00:02:55.510]worry about keeping up your roommate.
[00:02:57.150]You guys can come in here, work as late as you want.
[00:03:00.140]And then when you're done working you can
[00:03:01.370]come over here and kind of relax.
[00:03:03.630]You can see we've got big, comfy couches.
[00:03:06.540]There's arm chairs and a TV and
[00:03:08.700]that's all free for student use.
[00:03:10.310]You can come in here whenever you want
[00:03:11.900]and just kind of crash, hang out with your friends.
[00:03:14.270]Your RA, or Residence Advisor, is also
[00:03:16.710]probably gonna have some movie watching parties.
[00:03:19.260]Or I know, for girls especially, we
[00:03:20.840]always have a Bachelorette-watching party
[00:03:22.610]in here, which is a lot of fun.
[00:03:24.140]They'll bring some snacks, you guys
[00:03:25.810]can all bond, watch some TV together.
[00:03:28.560]It's a lot of fun.
[00:03:30.800]This is a traditional residence hall laundry room.
[00:03:33.070]So over here we're gonna have the washers
[00:03:35.680]that cost $2.25 to wash here at the University.
[00:03:39.360]Our machines take a debit or credit card.
[00:03:41.700]And one thing that's really cool about our machines
[00:03:43.840]is that we do have this website called myrevision.com
[00:03:47.060]and it can tell you which machines are available.
[00:03:49.180]You can also get sent reminders to yourself
[00:03:51.570]about when you're laundry's gonna be done.
[00:03:53.200]So that's super helpful when you're first
[00:03:54.607]coming to college and getting used to
[00:03:56.240]doing maybe your laundry for the first time.
[00:03:58.160]And here we're gonna have the sink so
[00:04:00.050]you can do large washing right there.
[00:04:02.040]And then lastly over here we have the dryers.
[00:04:04.350]It is free to dry here at the University.
[00:04:06.410]Take advantage of free drying.
[00:04:08.070]You can always throw a blanket in there,
[00:04:09.350]get nice and toasty and head back to your room.
[00:04:12.290]Alright guys, I hope you like what you saw here.

[00:04:16.360]amenities as well as floor plans for each
