Making Friends

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!

Spoke Too Soon!

So it is raining today. I got so excited yesterday since it was so hot out. But it was nice to at least get one day on warmth in! I’m sure once June rolls around it’ll be nice and hot! But for now, I guess I’ll just have to leave my shorts in the closet and pull out my jeans.

I am part of the College Democrats group at Butler and I’m helping to set up our visit to the Capitol. It should be really fun. I got to get a tour of the Capitol this summer in Ambassadors of Change where freshmen got to move in a week early and get to know each other while doing service projects around the city. It is definitely something I recommend to all incoming freshmen! It was a great way to make friends coming into college and it was great to be able to give back to the community.
