[00:00:00.200]Okay, good morning!
[00:00:01.170]Today, we are in our newly renovated
[00:00:03.565]Nebraska East Campus Union,
[00:00:05.550]and I'm here with two very talented CASNR students.
[00:00:09.000]And so, we're gonna talk to them to learn a little bit
[00:00:10.740]about what they like best about the East Campus Union.
[00:00:14.000]So to get started with, both of you just tell us
[00:00:16.100]a little bit about who you are, and your major,
[00:00:18.308]and where you're from.
[00:00:20.320]I'm Jackie Johnson.
[00:00:21.690]I'm from Grand Island, Nebraska.
[00:00:23.155]I'm majoring in Ag-Business,
[00:00:24.890]and I just recently transferred to U and L
[00:00:26.750]from Northeast Community College.
[00:00:28.850]Well, we're glad to have you part of CASNR.
[00:00:31.240]My name is Emily Zimmer.
[00:00:32.360]I'm a Agribusiness major and I'm from Pleasanton, Nebraska.
[00:00:35.280]Very nice, Emily.
[00:00:36.650]All right, so we're gonna ask our students here
[00:00:38.840]a couple of quick questions
[00:00:40.250]just to get your perspective on the new space.
[00:00:42.260]So first of all, this is an amazing new space,
[00:00:45.050]completely been transformed,
[00:00:46.280]and I know you're new.
From city university
[00:00:48.930]to Nebraskan CASNR, and that's okay,
[00:00:50.390]but it's a really cool space, right?
[00:00:51.850]It's a great opportunity for students to connect
[00:00:54.780]and to be able to hang out.
[00:00:55.840]So what's your favorite thing about this new Union space?
[00:00:59.170]I would say my favorite thing is just all the study space,
[00:01:02.030]and there's, it's quiet enough that it's nice to study,
[00:01:04.420]but there's also enough stuff going on
[00:01:06.315]that it's not super distracting
[00:01:08.440]if there is a noise or anything.
[00:01:09.970]So there's enough noise.
[00:01:11.330]I also love the study rooms.
[00:01:12.760]If I have a Zoom class or something, it's super nice to go
[00:01:15.830]in the study room and have it quiet if I need that space.
[00:01:19.470]Okay, so Emily, what do you like
[00:01:21.700]about the New Nebraska East Campus Union?
[00:01:24.010]Yeah, so I am a member of Sigma Alpha,
[00:01:26.480]which is an Ag sorority here on East campus,
[00:01:28.549]and we utilize the Great Plains room every week
[00:01:31.020]to host our meetings.
[00:01:32.191]So it's a great place for all of our sisters to come,
[00:01:34.492]and network, and connect, and build our sisterhood.
[00:01:38.150]Perfect, and I can tell you're very involved.
[00:01:40.060]You're part of that.
[00:01:40.893]You're also a William Thompson Scholar,
so that's great to see too.
[00:01:44.530]Okay, another question that we wanna talk
[00:01:46.330]to you guys a little bit at
[00:01:47.470]is up on the third floor,
[00:01:48.679]we have our CASNR, Career Services Development Program,
[00:01:53.160]that we want CASNR students to be able to connect with,
[00:01:55.431]great way to learn about career opportunities,
[00:01:58.428]internships, other experiential learning.
[00:02:01.460]And so, that's available to all of our students,
[00:02:03.630]which is a great resource.
[00:02:04.594]So we're just curious, what's your plans for the summer?
[00:02:08.310]So this summer I'm planning
[00:02:09.760]on going back home and working on the ranch,
[00:02:11.620]and I also have a bank back home that I work at,
[00:02:13.741]but I'm very excited about the career services opportunities
[00:02:17.130]that I have here so that when I graduate,
[00:02:19.150]or next summer when I'm looking for something,
[00:02:21.600]that I'll have the opportunity to go find
[00:02:23.640]out about, all those opportunities.
[00:02:25.020]That's right, and we have amazing new peer resume coaches
[00:02:29.760]that help fellow students work through their resumes.
[00:02:33.050]And then, we also have a talented CASNR team
[00:02:34.850]that can help you make those connections.
[00:02:36.580]What about for you, Emily?
[00:02:38.080]I'm super excited, I'm going to be pursuing
[00:02:40.020]my photography business this summer,
[00:02:41.835]but I am excited to utilize that, like Jackie said,
[00:02:45.090]for moving forward, for professional resources
[00:02:47.770]like looking over resumes, as I look forward
[00:02:50.810]to having a potential bank internship next summer.
[00:02:53.531]That'll be a nice resource to have.
[00:02:55.810]Perfect, so now the last question,
[00:02:56.930]and it's probably the hardest question of all.
[00:02:59.480]Its, What is your favorite beverage to get at the Starbucks
[00:03:02.960]that's located here in Nebraska East Campus Union?
[00:03:05.460]Okay, so what I've recently been getting
[00:03:07.660]is a cold brew with vanilla syrup in it,
[00:03:11.090]and then I also have to put a plug-in
[00:03:13.330]for the everything bagels.
[00:03:14.490]They are really good, and you have to get cream cheese.
[00:03:17.168]Okay, I'll take note of that.
[00:03:19.520]What about for you?
[00:03:20.720]I'm a white mocha iced with an extra shot of espresso.
[00:03:25.080]Very good, and I'm a strawberry acai.
[00:03:27.210]I really liked the refreshers.
[00:03:28.620]That's my favorite thing.
[00:03:29.680]So again, thank you to the two of you.
[00:03:31.840]Again, just a couple of examples
[00:03:33.460]of the amazing students that we have here in CASNR
[00:03:36.220]and we hope you've enjoyed this segment
[00:03:38.300]and learning a little bit more
[00:03:39.630]about how the new renovated East Campus Union space
[00:03:42.303]is providing a great hub for our students
[00:03:44.780]to be able to connect, be able to immerse themselves
[00:03:47.339]in their learning, as well as the resources
[00:03:50.000]that we offer here through the university of Nebraska.
