There are so many things that students should pack when coming to Butler. You can view a full packing list here via Facebook. Of course there are the essentials: backpack, bed linen, school supplies, toiletries, etc. But the part I think is the most important are the little touches of home you bring.
My favorite aspects of my dorm room were all the pictures and posters I brought. My favorite was my New York Yankees poster above my desk. And all the pictures of my family and friends really made me feel at home. But of course I couldn’t leave behind my XBOX 360. I would have been completely lost if I couldn’t play my games and watch movies on it!
So my best advice as to what else you should bring is bring whatever will make you feel at home in your dorm to make sure you feel comfortable.
Here’s a video of one of the rooms in Schwitzer Hall.
My math class for today was canceled so I only had to go to Chemistry today! So I got to take a REALLY long nap! Tonight I have to finish reading The Speckled People and study for a Spanish test.
I just attended an SGA (Student Government Association) meeting and it is a really good organization for freshmen to join. Each student organization at Butler has a representative in SGA and I represent ADrenaline, Butler’s advertising and marketing club. They won regionals and did well in nationals last year. SGA members vote on different agenda and are responsible for deciding on how money is allotted to various clubs on campus.
I am excited for the upcoming events at Butler! SGA sponsors many of the events on campus. Last year the featured artists at Butler were Kellie Pickler and Girl Talk. This year, Ben Folds, John Legend, and John Mellencamp are coming! Adam Lambert already came earlier in the year. For more info on upcoming events and tickets at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler visit their webpage.
I added pictures of my dorm today so that future students can get a feel as to what the rooms would look like. Most freshmen will be in either Ross Hall (boys and girls dorm) or Schwitzer Hall (girls dorm). I am in Resco which houses mostly sophomores but occasionally some freshmen slip through (like me!).
THE YANKEES ARE GOING TO THE PLAYOFFS!!!!!!
That’s all for today! Go Bulldogs!
