Oz

On my first day back home for Spring Break, I decided to see a movie with my friend since elementary school, Hayley! She informed me that there was a new Disney movie called Oz The Great and Powerful so we went to see it! The theatre was extremely packed to see the movie so luckily we got there early to get great heckling seats since we both enjoy making snide comments about movies together. Yes, we’re those people….

The movie starred James Franco as Oz. It also starred Mila Kunis as one of the evil witches. It is before Dorothy arrives and tells the backstory as to how Oz got his rule over the Emerald City. The plot and storyline were very creative and the cinematography was spectacular. I really enjoyed the movie. Although I have a vendetta against movies longer than 1 hour and 30 minutes, I still enjoyed this 2 hour movie. Needless to say we got irritated looks for giggling and laughing the whole time but it was a great movie, nonetheless! I highly recommend seeing it.

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!
