Hometown: Tampa, FL
Intended Major: Environmental Studies
Butler University is excited to welcome an exceptional group of first-year students this coming fall. Read on to get to know Megan Gorsky, one member of the Class of 2024.
What were you involved with during high school?
I was involved in marching band, jazz band, and the rowing team at my high school. I continued participating in band all four years of high school, and I was a drum major for three of those years.
What put Butler on your radar?
I have a lot of family near Butler’s campus, and every summer we would drive by the University. I always had the thought that maybe I would go to Butler. When it came time to start getting serious about my search, I took some college trips (Butler being one of them), and I was drawn to Butler more than any of the other schools I visited. Butler puts an emphasis on not only the academic side of college, but also on being a well-rounded person who really gets to experience life outside of classes.
What do you hope to major or minor in?
I am looking forward to majoring in Environmental Studies with a possible minor in Biology in the future.
What do you hope to get involved in at Butler?
I like to be involved with anything outdoors and adventurous. I would like to join the crew team and maybe join a few other clubs, ideally something environmental or an outdoor adventure group that does some cool things around Indy. I would also love to study abroad—I’ve spent a LOT of time researching that on the Butler website.
What are you most excited about?
I can’t wait to meet new friends and live in a beautiful area that has seasons. I can’t wait to see what it’s like to be a bit more independent in a different city.
