[00:00:06.180]Hello everyone, my name is Gui.
[00:00:09.740]I'm from Brazil, from Porto Alegre.
[00:00:12.340]I'm a mechnical engineering student
[00:00:14.230]at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
[00:00:17.580]Today I'm gonna show you how my day looks like.
[00:00:21.600]So today's a Tuesday, and I have four classes.
[00:00:25.810]It's gonna be a long day.
[00:00:27.480]I have classes from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
[00:00:32.070]So right now, I am exiting my building.
[00:00:35.820]I live in Knoll Residence Hall.
[00:00:40.560]That's how the building looks like.
[00:00:45.410]It's a super nice place to live.
[00:00:48.080]Here is one of the dining halls, that's Cather.
[00:00:56.905]I'm gonna have breakfast now, so see you later.
[00:01:00.880]All right guys, so I just got done with my chemistry lab
[00:01:04.660]and that's An Qi, she's my lab partner, where are you from?
And what is your major?
[00:01:10.780]I'm majoring in computer science.
[00:01:12.180]And what do you like most about UNL, about Lincoln?
[00:01:16.460]Probably the building here.
[00:01:17.900]The buildings, yeah, that's actually so nice.
[00:01:19.820]We are walking to the library and I'm gonna turn here.
[00:01:26.340]That's one of the places I like to study.
[00:01:28.630]It's called the Learning Commons.
[00:01:29.990]It's a part of the library, that's the library.
[00:01:33.540]As you can see, it's a super beautiful campus.
[00:01:37.210]And here is our chemistry building.
[00:01:40.410]Okay guys, so now I'm gonna enter the library,
[00:01:43.130]and I need to make silence,
[00:01:45.000]because it's a really quiet place.
[00:01:49.560]So here is just a place where you can study.
[00:01:53.410]There's some computers available.
[00:01:56.350]Now I'm going to a quiet study place.
[00:02:00.710]Here is the place where I like to study for my tests.
[00:02:08.065]Oh yeah, he's a guest.
[00:02:11.040]Also, in the library we have a Dunkin' Donuts.
[00:02:16.080]So whenever you want to refresh,
[00:02:19.780]to get a coffee or a doughnut, whatever,
[00:02:23.090]it's really accessible and it's pretty nice.
[00:02:26.970]I'm gonna show you, it's right here.
[00:02:30.166](digital beeping and whooshing)
[00:02:30.999]I just got done with work now,
[00:02:33.970]so I'm walking towards my physics class.
[00:02:38.110]It's about eight minutes from where I am.
[00:02:42.413]I'm walking by the Memorial Stadium.
[00:02:46.220]Yeah, now you can see it much better.
[00:02:49.080]So this stadium has capacity for about 19,000 people.
[00:02:55.130]It sells out from, I don't know,
[00:02:59.470]like 1965 or 1967, something like this.
[00:03:04.450]So we have the NCAA record of sellouts in the whole history,
[00:03:10.620]and it's insane considering that more
[00:03:12.580]than 90,000 people come to watch the games.
[00:03:16.480]As you are listening to this music,
[00:03:19.320]it comes from this tower.
[00:03:22.000]It plays music everyday, every 15 minutes.
[00:03:26.793](digital beeping and whooshing)
[00:03:28.484]I'll go into the physics hall.
[00:03:37.490]I'm done with all of my classes.
[00:03:39.060]I only have math left, and well, we'll have a quiz,
[00:03:43.150]so now we are, Thomas and I, we are studying
[00:03:47.010]in one of the library rooms.
[00:03:49.600]Now I'm done with all of my classes except for math,
[00:03:52.550]and the class is about to start.
[00:03:55.400]That's Mr. DeVries, he's the professor for Calc II.
[00:03:59.780]What do you like most about being a professor at UNL?
[00:04:03.150]The wonderful diversity of the students
[00:04:06.220]and the dedication to academic excellence
[00:04:09.620]that most students show.
[00:04:12.240]All right guys, so the class about to start,
[00:04:14.210]and I see you guys later.
[00:04:15.910]Now it's about 10:30 p.m. and I just got done
[00:04:19.750]with all my homework and the projects I was doing today.
[00:04:23.900]It is a super long day, but the weather was so nice outside.
[00:04:27.950]It was warm and now I'm walking to my dorm.
[00:04:32.660]Oh, as you can see, it's night,
[00:04:35.150]and the campus is really, really safe at night.
[00:04:38.283]I really love walking here and listening to music.
[00:04:42.380]It's just super, super nice, it's super safe.
[00:04:47.040]Well, I hope you guys enjoyed my day.
[00:04:51.390]See you soon on campus here in Nebraska, go Big Red!
