One of the great things about Butler is that though it is a small campus, there are so many clubs and activities to do and join. There are over 115 student organizations on campus which means there are definitely a lot of opportunities to get involved and meet new people.
I remember as an incoming freshman I wondered how I was gong to find out about and even join these clubs! Well that’s where Block Party comes in. Block Party is where all the student organizations on campus set up tables on the mall and everyone on campus is invited to go take a look at each one and sign up for the ones they are interested in. Each table usually has free items and you’re almost always guaranteed to go home with arms full of stuff!
Even all the fraternities and sororities have tables so if you’re interested in Greek life there’ll be tons of information of that as well. Here’s a quick video just showing how many people show up and what the atmosphere is like at Block Party. This year Block Party is on Tuesday August 21 from 5-7 p.m.
I decided for today’s blog post, I’d make a list of my top ten favorite things about being back on campus! There were so many things, it was hard to cut it down to ten but here it goes:
1. Finally being reunited with all my friends!
2. Having an air conditioned dorm
3. Starting new classes and meeting new people
4. Getting to go to Starbucks every day
5. Randomly seeing Butler Blue 2 on campus
6. Going to see different events at Clowes Hall
7. Getting my weekly workout in at the HRC
8. Getting chased by awkwardly obese squirrels
9. Going to sports games (Especially basketball!)
10. Participating in all the new organizations I’m part of

I’m so glad to finally be back at Butler! I’ve been super busy with all my courses and extracurriculars! I decided to take a break from my homework to talk about what I’ve been up to!
For starters, I just joined the Butler Collegian, Butler’s student newspaper. It comes out every Wednesday and we put in a lot of work into making it perfect. I write for the news section! I’m also a member of College Democrats again and yesterday we started planning some awesome events for this upcoming year! Stay tuned to my blog for more about that!
I’m also pretty excited for all of my courses. I’m really excited about my Sportswriting class. Though I have a couple of favorite sports teams, I’m not much of a sports junkie so I’ve been consistently checking ESPN everyday just to get up to speed on the latest sports news.

Since today is the first home game of the football season, I thought I’d share a Butler football video I found online!
