This Weekend!

I am excited! Tonight I am going to see the performance of Eurydice at Lilly Hall, which houses the music school. I am also going on a retreat this weekend with Butler’s Cru. It is Butler’s Christian group. I will be driving two other people to the retreat in my car.

One perk that Butler provides that many other schools don’t is that Freshmen are allowed to have cars on campus. It definitely comes in handy when I’m out of water or floss!

Tomorrow should be a pretty easy day. I only have two classes tomorrow and no tests (thankfully!). Next week is fall break and the week after that is HOMECOMING! I think I will go to the boys soccer game against Loyola Chicago since some of my friends attend the school and may come to the game!

That’s all for today!

This is where most freshmen will live (Ross Hall). It holds mostly guys but there is one floor of girls.

This Upcoming week!

I’ve decided to call October “FUNTOBER”!!!

This week, although I have a Spanish Quiz and I have to write a paper, I am going on a Cru Retreat. It is a Christian retreat and it is going to be all weekend. The next week we only have classes for 3 days because of Fall Break. The week after that it is Homecoming week and finally the weekend after that is Halloween! The fraternity Lambda Chi is going to be hosting a Haunted House and it is nationally recognized as being one of the best haunted houses ever, according to one of my friends who lives in the house.

Also, on October 26, there is a seminar on religion and the topic is going to be on “The Future of Islam.” It sounds interesting and I get to achieve part of my Cultural Requirement. The Cultural Requirement at Butler is an initiative to get students to go out and get involved in new learning opportunities. Students have to attend about two of these events a year (or “8 before you graduate”) which isn’t a bad deal considering that the events are free and are interesting. You can go to plays, see the Butler ballet, and attend other various events featured at Clowes Hall to reach the requirement.

Majors at Butler

I received a recent inquiry about what types of majors and academics Butler provides so I decided to devote a blog post towards it. Butler offers over 60 majors which you can view here. In this post, I am going to highlight a few.

This year is the first school year for the College of Communications and I am glad to be part of its inaugural year. In the college, there are a wide range of majors from Journalism, which is what I am doing, to Recording Industry Studies.

In the College of Education, there are also a variety of majors. Of course there’s Elementary Education in which you can go into but, for those who are undecided as to what major they want, you can be an Exploratory Studies major until you decide what career path you want to go into.

In the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, you can go into either Pre-Pharmacy or Pre-Physician Assistant. Pharmacy is a great career path to go into, especially at Butler. Pharmacy majors at Butler have a 100 percent job placement rate upon graduation which is phenomenal, especially considering the pay rates.

There are many more fields one can enter at Butler including Business, Fine Arts, Liberal Arts, and many Pre-Professional Programs. For any questions regarding majors and Butler life, feel free to leave a comment or visit Butler’s homepage.
