What is it like to be a part of the Butler Community? Who is your Butler Community?
Being a Butler Bulldog means belonging to a lifelong community of people who care for you and lift you higher. My Butler community is all of my wonderful friends, my professors, my advisors, and even the smiley barista that gives me Starbucks; every one of these people makes being a Butler Bulldog the best decision I’ve ever made!
How will your Butler experience help you after graduation?
Having a Butler degree will help me show to future graduate programs and employers that I have an education that will take me above and beyond what is expected from an employee. Bulldogs give nothing but their all. A Butler degree is respected and I am privileged to have the ability to put that on my resume.
What’s your favorite memory of your Butler experience, so far?
My favorite memory on campus was my Homecoming experience this past Fall. Being able to see and reconnect with all of my friends that graduated and to get to hear about the wonderful things that they are doing was incredible. Getting to top that off with cheering for the Dawgs with all my best friends—it doesn’t get much better than that.
What were your primary factors in making your college decision?
When deciding which university I was going to attend, it was important to me that I was not just going to be a number and that I would have the opportunity to make a difference. I chose Butler because during my second visit to campus, my advisors remembered my name and what I wanted to do when I graduated, all of my tour guides were extremely kind and helpful, and everywhere I went I saw a smiling face. I just felt like I could be my best self here.
What makes you most proud to be a Bulldog?
The aspect of Butler that makes me most proud to be a Bulldog is the camaraderie that we have here on campus. It is seldom that you will see a Butler student putting another Bulldog down. We are here to lift each other up to be the best that we all can possibly be. Every time that I take an exam or run that extra mile at the gym, there is always someone there to cheer me on, whether it is one of my friends or a complete stranger. Being a Butler Bulldog has made me want to be a better person.
What does the Butler Way mean to you?
The Butler Way means that I will continue to strive to be my best self for the rest of my life, but that I will do it with humility and grace. It means that I will not put myself before others and that I will never forget where I came from and lead by giving back. Lastly, I will never forget to thank the people that made it possible for me to go to Butler University, which has enabled me to reach for the best version of myself to better the world around me.
