What’s the best thing about being a Bulldog?
The best thing about being a Bulldog is the tight-knit community. I love feeling like I’m a part of the campus, and not just a number. The professors are amazing as well, and they work hard to make sure they remember every student’s name, which is not a common occurrence in college. 

What’s your favorite student activity?
I love going to basketball games. I’ve been a Butler Basketball fan all my life, so it’s always a special feeling to walk into Hinkle Fieldhouse as a student. 

What’s your favorite spot on campus?
I love going to the Health and Recreation Center. Whether I’m working out or playing basketball, it’s a really good spot to stay in shape and meet new people. 

Which faculty member has inspired you the most?
Professor Middleton has definitely been the most inspiring professor I’ve had at Butler so far. She was my professor for my Speech for Business class and was so supportive of every student. She went out of her way to help me improve my speaking skills above and beyond what I had ever anticipated for myself. 

What do you want to do upon graduation?
After graduation, I’m hoping to work as a marketing executive and visit Butler Blue after the Dawgs win the National Championship!
