I started my work at my service learning site last night and I really enjoyed it! I’m working at the Kaleidoscope Youth Center and am working as a volunteer tutor. I loved helping all the kids and I was amazed at how fast I could get attached to all the students. There were other volunteers there, too, so I wouldn’t get overwhelmed by millions of kids but even without the others I would’ve liked it.
The night started with all the students having to do homework and it was fun brushing up on my subtracting skills. But I must admit, there were some questions even I didn’t know! The hardest part was just getting all the students on task and not looking up music videos and playing games online. After they did homework it was dinner time and then everyone crowded around the piano to sing. Once the night was winding down everyone was able to play around on the computer and slowly but surely everyone’s parents picked them up.
I had such a wonderful time and hopefully will enjoy myself as much in my future visits this semester.
I got to be a nun when I went downtown for Super Bowl weekend.... No big deal....
Being a Bulldog is so much fun! My classes are fun but some are challenging. But the best thing is all the new people to meet. The great thing about this campus is the fact that it’s nice and everyone treats each other as a family. It reminds me of my high school. Both my high school and Butler stress the same things: family environment, academics, & fun. There are always activities in which one can go to. Butler started the “Good Clean Fun Initiative” which has a Facebook page. This is designed to allow students to participate in positive yet fun activities almost every day.
The major things coming up this week for me are my Chemistry test and my paper due in Writing for Print Media. I’m not too worried about my test because I had a good background in Chemistry in high school so hopefully it helps me now.I have to write an obituary, morbid I know, about a celebrity. I am thinking of doing it on either Amy Winehouse or Jack Johnson (even though I love them both as artists).
For questions about Butler feel free to leave a comment or to visit the school’s webpage.
I’ll also try to make a “Random Butler Photo of the Day” just to show different places and sights on campus.
