What’s been your favorite course at Butler so far and why?
My favorite course at Butler was Business Statistics with Josh Owens. The subject material was very interesting to me and Professor Owens was able to apply every concept in the course to real-life applications and experiences. The ability for Butler professors, specifically in my experience with the Lacy School of Business, to share personal real-world experiences has been invaluable to my academic experience.
What is it like to be a part of the Butler Community? Who is your Butler Community?
To me, the best way to describe Butler is as a Community. Everyone looks out for one another; everyone is friendly and approachable; all students and faculty truly want to help whomever they can. My Butler Community grows more and more each year as I take more classes, join different organizations, meet with students based on similar interests or career paths. However, I think the most notable part about Butler is that my Butler Community includes everyone at Butler – even those individuals I do not know well or at all.
How will your Butler experience help you after graduation?
I am already able to see how my Butler experience will able to help me after graduation! From a career perspective, Butler opens an unbelievable amount of doors in terms of job opportunities and network connections. I also know my ability to join a multitude of extracurricular activities and obtain multiple leadership opportunities on campus will help me in terms of personal development and “people skills” far after I graduate.
What’s your favorite memory of your Butler experience, so far?
This is such a hard one! The amazing memories at Butler are too many to even count at this point. I would say one of my favorites is always homecoming – I love seeing all the alumni come back to a place they still hold so close in their hearts. All the reunions, memories, and pure happiness of being back on campus create an infectious happy atmosphere for all present.
What were your primary factors in making your college decision?
From the beginning of my college decision process, I focused on size, the presence of a good business school, and extracurricular opportunities. To be completely honest, however, I ended up choosing Butler based solely on a feeling I had while being on campus. There was just something about this place that made me never want to leave – it sounds incredibly cheesy, but that was exactly how I felt. I felt comfortable, at home, and surrounded by so many genuine and friendly people. I am thankful every day I acted on that feeling, because I now get to experience that sense of comfort every single day.
What makes you most proud to be a Bulldog?
It makes me incredibly proud to be a Bulldog watching my peers and their accomplishments. There are so many people worthy of extreme recognition on this campus. From planning campus-wide events, scoring prestigious internships or job offers, to winning in athletics – Butler is full of some extremely talented students. They all make me proud.
What does the Butler Way mean to you?
Personally, the Butler Way simply embodies the mindset of Butler students. At Butler, students are motivated, talented but humble, they put others first, and never expect anything in return. Students at Butler are simply a different breed, and that is something that I am incredibly proud to be a part of.
