Today’s post comes to you at the initiation of the most hyped moment of the Butler year: Welcome Week!
Put your hands up if you're excited!
Possibly the most exciting, energy-packed week, Welcome Week takes huge amounts of planning and preparation. Most of this is carried out by the incredible staff at the PuLSE Office, including Caroline Huck-Watson and Rob Miller.
Those guys! Caroline and Rob, aren't they great!
The other part of the equation comes from the scores of student volunteers who take it upon themselves to be the face of Butler that welcomes the new freshmen. SOGs (Student Orientation Guides) are perhaps the most outgoing students on campus. We’re in love with this university and not afraid to show it!
We're also goofy
School is about a month in, and for myself and nearly everybody I know, it hit us this past week like a brick wall. One we should’ve seen coming, but which threw us to the ground anyway. Classes finally hit their stride, free time is dwindling, and focus is now necessary to get through the hours of homework.
To illustrate. The year started off with a care-free attitude, much like the attitude of The Double Dream Hands guy. He’s out there, getting “jiggy” with it (as the young kids today would say). I was an SOG for welcome week, and loved every minute of it. Attitudes were positive, spirit was great, and the whole year stretched before us with optimism.

Now it’s time for business. We have our goals for the semester lined out before us. Our class objectives are clear; it’s only a matter of accomplishing them. Now that I’ve realized it, I’m calm. But I’ll admit that when I first hit the wall o’ work, my face probably gave away that I was a little shocked.
