What’s been your favorite course at Butler so far and why?

FYS: Food Hunger. This course allowed me to feel comfortable and connected with my peers from the start. We were able to build relationships with each other while growing during our first year at Butler. I was constantly challenged and inspired to think of resolutions to why we as a country struggle with food poverty. This course also prepared me to become a stronger student working on my writing, speaking, reading, and listening skills.

What is it like to be a part of the Butler Community? Who is your Butler Community?

The Butler Community is having a sense of unconditional support. This community challenges me to grow into the best version of myself every single day. My Butler community involves classmates in group projects, professors who invest in your personal life, friends who have developed into more like family, and peers that share the same common love of being a Bulldog.

How will your Butler experience help you after graduation?

My Butler experience has been shaping me since the first day on campus to evolve into the best professional and citizen I can be. It has given me the opportunity to network and have real life experiences outside of the classroom to better shape my knowledge of the world. It has connected me to different individuals and provided educational and lifestyle opportunities to explore new things. After graduation, I will have felt prepared for the next step in my life with the help and guidance of my Butler experience.

What’s your favorite memory of your Butler experience, so far?

Every student that comes to Butler will experience a one of a kind Welcome Week adventure. This week is what laid the foundation for my overall expectations and experiences yet to come as a Bulldog. My favorite memory so far has been getting to return to that Welcome Week as a student orientation guide to welcome new students to the Butler Community. I’m excited to share why this place means so much to me, and the energy that is shared amongst this group of student orientation guides.

What were your primary factors in making your college decision?

When making my college decision I searched for a place that fostered the growth and individuality of students; a place where I would have a chance to establish my own path through college with connections to big opportunities and experiences. Most of all, I wanted a community that would support and build me in my endeavors. Butler exceeded my expectations and provided so much more. It’s comforting to look around campus and always see a familiar face or helping hand no matter where you are.

What makes you most proud to be a Bulldog?

The thing that makes me most proud to be a Bulldog is the way individuals take ownership of their Butler experience throughout the longevity of their lives. You aren’t just a Bulldog for four years, but truly for life. I’m constantly inspired by our alumni who encourage and pour back into this university and community. It makes me proud to see the way past and future Bulldogs embrace their connection to the university in everything they do.

What does the Butler Way mean to you?

The Butler Way to me means putting someone else above yourself no matter the sacrifice. We put each other first, and are committed to growing and learning from our experiences. The Butler Way is a lifestyle built into our students to always look out for each other. Its an irreplaceable atmosphere that is something special and what truly makes Butler different.
