Before the Georgetown game, our group of interns was able to attend a DC Butler alum event. It was held in a nice restaurant in downtown D.C. that was reserved just for the event.
There were a ton of alums at the event and they were all really friendly! I met some alums that were from my part of Indiana and relocated to D.C. because of grad schools, jobs, etc. They were really helpful to talk to as I’m currently debating where I want to locate to for grad school. It was definitely reassuring to see how many connections in the area/nationally Butler has, which was something I didn’t realize previously.
We were joined at the lunch, which was delicious Italian food by the way, by LJ, President Danko, and most importantly Blue 3. Of course I got my photo op with Blue. He was getting a bit rowdy at the event but made sure not to be too much of a diva to take a photo with me.

Last week us Butler interns were able to attend the Butler vs. Georgetown basketball game and it was a lot of fun! Unfortunately the Bulldogs lost but they still put up a great effort. The game was held at the Verizon Center in D.C. and was my first game of the season so what an entrance! The stadium was really nice and large and so state of the art. I could live there!
I sat with the other interns so we all chatted the whole time. I got to talk with the President of Butler alumni’s D.C. chapter and we both got to share our favorite DC/Butler experiences.
One interesting thing about the game was that it was definitely weird being at a Butler game where the majority of the people weren’t rooting for Butler and it wasn’t at Hinkle! Thankfully Georgetown’s mascot is also the bulldog so we blended in thankfully!

This Saturday, Butler is taking us D.C. interns to the Butler v. Georgetown basketball game! It will be held at the Verizon Center. I’m pretty excited because it will be the first basketball game I’ve attended this season and it will be in D.C. nonetheless!
Before the game they are treating us to lunch and we will be eating with LJ and Butler alumni in the area. I’m not quite sure where they’re taking us but I’ll be sure to blog about it after it happens! I can’t wait to meet everyone!
I awkwardly don’t own any Butler T-Shirts so while I’m here I am highly debating buying a Georgetown shirt so I can have all my bases covered no matter the outcome of the game. Sure that’s being a fair weather fan but there’s no shame in my game. Plus, I might be attending Georgetown for grad school so technically I’m fine. Don’t judge.
Today’s Music Monday is dedicated to the song “Chillin” by Wale featuring Lady Gaga. Since I’m in D.C. this semester, I’ve been trying to expand my musical selection to artists from the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area. The funny thing about this music video is that a lot of scenes are places I’ve visited or seen while here so it’s nice that I’m already starting to recognize things despite only having been here a week!
Yesterday I got to see a ton of sights as I went with my roommates shopping around the city in Georgetown. We went to a ton of stores but I ended up only getting something from Ralph Lauren. The great thing about having roommates that are from the area is that they know where everything is!
The only downside to yesterday was the cold and the fact that there was construction on the subway so it made every trip ten times as long. Fortunately for us, we just so happened to catch the subway right when it was approaching so it ended up working out!
