[00:00:06.847]Hi everyone, my name is Alair.
[00:00:09.180]We're here at the Union.
[00:00:10.370]This is pretty much the hub of campus
[00:00:12.090]because we have a lot of resources,
[00:00:13.980]and there's a lot of open study space.
[00:00:16.020]So, let's go check it out.
[00:00:20.080]So, when you first walk into the Union,
[00:00:21.950]you'll see The Crib.
[00:00:22.930]This is a very open and quiet study space
[00:00:25.050]for students to come and use.
[00:00:26.440]We also have a lot of speakers, poets,
[00:00:28.430]and acapella groups perform here for students to enjoy.
[00:00:31.330]Next, we'll head over to the Food Court.
[00:00:37.000]Here we have plenty of options for you to eat
[00:00:38.970]outside of the dining hall.
[00:00:40.340]We have Chik-fil-a, Steak n' Shake, Subway,
[00:00:42.950]Imperial Palace, and Valentino's.
[00:00:45.590]This is not included in your meal plan,
[00:00:47.550]but you can charge it on your N Card.
[00:00:49.370]For a little bit more about your N Card,
[00:00:51.110]we'll go to the N Card Office.
[00:00:55.530]When you come to new student enrollment,
[00:00:56.950]the summer before your freshman year,
[00:00:58.680]you'll receive your N Card.
[00:01:00.160]Your N Card is your ticket to life here on campus.
[00:01:02.770]You can use it to get into the dining halls,
[00:01:04.590]the residence halls, the Campus Recreation Center,
[00:01:07.330]the Digital Learning Center, and a lot more.
[00:01:09.440]If you lose your N Card, you can get a new one
[00:01:11.290]here at this office for $15.
[00:01:13.270]If you look on the back, you have the UNL Police
[00:01:15.360]phone number, counseling and psychological services,
[00:01:18.220]and also 475-RIDE, which is a driving program
[00:01:20.970]that we provide to students here on campus.
[00:01:22.960]So, if you need a ride to the dentist,
[00:01:24.410]you can use this program to go there.
[00:01:26.230]Now, we're gonna talk about Huskertech.
[00:01:28.730]So, at Nebraska, you don't need a laptop for college,
[00:01:31.480]but you can definitely have one.
[00:01:33.200]If you don't have a laptop, or if your laptop
[00:01:35.210]does breakdown, you can check out a laptop here
[00:01:37.550]for free, for up to seven days.
[00:01:39.210]And, keep on checking it out if you need to.
[00:01:41.310]If your computer has a virus,
[00:01:43.150]you can definitely get that fixed here.
[00:01:44.890]And, this is not the only Huskertech location on campus.
[00:01:47.690]We also have one in Henzlik Hall,
[00:01:49.480]Love Library, and in the basement of the Union.
[00:01:51.680]Next, let's go check out the Bookstore.
[00:02:00.320]So, at the Bookstore, obviously you can buy
[00:02:02.290]your University textbooks, but this is also
[00:02:04.410]where we sell all of our Husker apparel.
[00:02:06.710]For textbooks you can order online,
[00:02:08.470]or you can go in and shop in person.
[00:02:10.350]You can buy them new, used, or you can rent them.
[00:02:12.743]I personally like to rent my textbooks
[00:02:14.910]online from the Bookstore.
[00:02:16.370]We also price match with Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles.
[00:02:19.340]But, no third-party sellers from Amazon.
[00:02:21.550]Right next to the Bookstore, you also have the NU Market,
[00:02:24.010]which is basically just a convenience store
[00:02:25.820]that we have on campus for students.
[00:02:27.760]So, if you lose your toothbrush,
[00:02:29.160]you can get a new one here.
[00:02:30.190]Or, if you're craving a snack,
[00:02:31.530]you can definitely do that here as well.
[00:02:33.520]Over here we have our Huskertech location.
[00:02:36.040]This one is actually a certified Apple Store.
[00:02:38.290]So, when you bring your N Card,
[00:02:39.810]you actually get a really good discount.
[00:02:41.550]Next, we're gonna head upstairs
[00:02:42.870]and check out some more resources.
[00:02:47.640]Right behind me, we have the Student Involvement Office.
[00:02:50.080]At Nebraska we offer over 500 clubs and organizations
[00:02:53.390]that you can be involved in.
[00:02:54.840]Those organizations range from pre-professional clubs,
[00:02:57.540]to sports clubs, intramural sports,
[00:02:59.317]and clubs just for fun.
[00:03:00.860]You can even start a club if there's one that
[00:03:02.570]you're passionate about that we don't offer here on campus.
[00:03:05.070]I started a sailing club, and it's been really awesome.
[00:03:07.760]Around the corner, we also have our Career Services Office.
[00:03:10.620]Career Services has a lot to offer for students.
[00:03:13.120]If you're looking for internships,
[00:03:14.420]or really don't know where you wanna go
[00:03:15.870]with your career path yet, they can definitely help you out.
[00:03:18.420]They will do mock interviews, so if you're nervous
[00:03:20.440]for an internship or a job interview.
[00:03:22.180]STEM career fairs, serve career fairs,
[00:03:24.300]and also business fairs.
[00:03:25.840]So, further back around the corner,
[00:03:27.360]we also have Money Management Resources.
[00:03:29.650]So, let's say you work all summer,
[00:03:31.210]before you come to college, you can go to them
[00:03:33.330]and they'll help you manage your money,
[00:03:34.600]so that you don't blow it all in one month.
[00:03:37.760]So, this is the end of our tour of the Union.
[00:03:39.900]Please come visit me,
[00:03:40.840]and I can show you around campus myself.
[00:03:42.880]You can schedule a visit at go.unl.edu/visit.
[00:03:46.790]I hope to see you on campus soon.
[00:03:50.860]And, that's all we have up here.
[00:03:54.180]That was super awkward.
