OU Residence Hall Tour: Upper Quad
Hi, everyone, my name is Ethan Hawkland. I'm an assistant director of admission here, Oglethorpe University. And today we are taking a tour of Schmidt.
Come on in, let's take a tour of Schmidt. So right when you walk in, you find our common room. This is a two bedroom suite for four students. So this common space already comes available with a couch. Now every student here at Oglethorpe receives a bed, a desk and a dresser. So two of our students in this suite have decided to leave their desk in the living room. So we also do have a wardrobe here in place of our dresser, lots of space here available as well. Again, students just decided they were going to keep it in the common living space, but lots of space for your clothes, your shoes, whatever it may be. But we'll go ahead and take a look at one of our bedrooms first. So as you walk in, you can see we do have two beds available in here. Both of these are decorated. And you have a dresser, and a desk in here as well. Very spacious, really great, really great views. I love the windows and the greenery. They are able to see out of this bedroom as well. And also an air conditioning unit, which is always my favorite part of every single dorm. But we'll go ahead and take a look at our second room. So over here, same concept as well. Now it may not be decorated. But again, there are two beds located here and two dressers. And also a lovely view of the residential quad outside the window as well. So one thing to keep in mind is that not all of the beds are required to be bunked, that you actually can unbunk them. So that is definitely an option available for you as well. But we'll go ahead and take a look at the bathroom later right here. So as we make our way to the back of the suite, you'll see we have a lot of storage space available here. Most students choose to you know, keep their clothes here, or if they want to do a little kitchenette or whatever, maybe they keep their supplies here. So lots of space available for you shelf space as well. So it's up to you and your roommates how you're going to use that. But the last stop on our tour is the bathroom. So as you walk in, you can see we have-- Two sinks available for you on the vanity here, as well as a very large mirror, and a toilet stall with its own private door. So that way if you happen to you know, need to go into the bathroom, while other students need to use the restroom, you still have that sense of privacy. Lastly is our shower stall. So as you can see, it's very, very spacious, very, you know, very welcoming for a lot of your supplies and different stuff like that. This lights currently broken, but we'll have maintenance fix that before you guys are here. So just as a general reminder, if you have any maintenance requests that are needed while you're here at Oglethorpe, you can certainly ask for facilities to take a look at that as well. So lots of space here for your towel racks. So just a lovely bathroom overall. And that concludes our Schmidt residence hall tour.
