[00:00:00.120]So what've been your favorite, kind of, favorite classes
[00:00:02.760]or favorite professors that you've connected with?
[00:00:05.030]I love chemistry, and I would just like to tell you
[00:00:07.440]that I'm a TA this semester for 'Gen. Chem.', Chem 109.
[00:00:11.990]So all the students who have to take the introductory class
[00:00:15.380]of Chemistry, they are my students.
[00:00:18.040]So, I'm super excited to be TA.
[00:00:19.880]And even the Chemistry Department,
[00:00:21.560]we do have a resource center where you can come up
[00:00:24.700]with your assignments, so that's also a good resource to do.
[00:00:30.010]What other resources are available
[00:00:31.770]for international students to succeed academically?
[00:00:34.000]A student who needs help can come in here
[00:00:36.630]and find resources like other TA's.
[00:00:39.070]Which, here is one of my TA's right here.
[00:00:40.489]He is a TA.
[00:00:41.745]He TA's 'Chem 251' for me this semester.
[00:00:45.930]He has scheduled office hours.
[00:00:47.370]I make myself present on a weekly basis in here,
[00:00:50.840]2 to 3 days a week, a couple hours a day.
[00:00:53.610]If that doesn't work, then I try to encourage students
[00:00:55.850]to email me and interact that way to set up a time
[00:00:58.660]that is suitable for the both of us.
[00:01:01.947]And, that way it doesn't have to be so formal.
[00:01:06.460]So what are some places on campus to study at?
[00:01:09.890]Oh, wow. I can speak a lot about it,
[00:01:12.540]but let me just select some. First thing,
[00:01:14.980]I would say the Love Library. That's a great resource.
[00:01:18.260]I think we are right here.
[00:01:20.040]So, for me, I like to study in a place
[00:01:22.270]which is not too silent.
[00:01:24.330]I like a little bit of background music going on.
[00:01:27.010]So if somebody's a little bit talking,
[00:01:29.110]if somebody's asking questions, I like that atmosphere
[00:01:31.846]rather than having complete silence.
[00:01:34.040]So, one of my favorite places to study
[00:01:36.640]is definitely Love Library North,
[00:01:39.052]near Dunkin' Donuts, oh wow.
