One of the biggest things I was worried about coming into Butler was making new friends after leaving all of my old friends in high school. But when I came, I found out that everyone else was in the same situation and it was quite easy to make new friends! My biggest advice would be to get involved as much as possible to meet others with similar interests.
The way I met most of my friends was through the Ambassadors of Change program. It’s a program where you get to move in a week early and meet other freshmen while working on service projects throughout the city. It was a fun way to meet people and learn my way around Indianapolis! The best part is that you’re split into groups based on your interests. My group was devoted to law and government and we got to take a tour of the capitol building and go to the state fair! I definitely recommend anyone looking to meet new people before school starts to enroll in the program. It was so much fun and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
