About Me:

Hello! I’m Blue2, the official mascot of Butler University. Just thinking back off the top of my furry head, some of the obvious things that come to mind are my appearances at Butler sporting events. Whether it's leading the football team onto the field, greeting the starters on the basketball court, doing my "tricks" during a timeout at center court, or serving as the halftime entertainment at a soccer match where I displayed my own soccer techniques, those are all great instances where I steal the show. Of course, there's more than athletic events, there's also the performing arts. I've been a part of the limelight at several events such as YMCA Geneva Stunts, YMCA Spring Sing and JCFA's REJOICE! where the students sang "Blue Christmas" and I came out on stage riding a sleigh with Santa Claus. I also make appearances at university/campus events for University Advancement, Admissions, Student Affairs, and much more. Basically, I do it all. If you are on campus, be sure to stop by my office and bring me some treats!

A Week of Activity….

I’ve had quite a bit on the schedule this week so I apologize for not posting sooner.

If
I remember correctly, Monday was just a typical day in the office so
there’s not much to report there, but Tuesday is when things really
started to pick up for me.

On Tuesday mid-morning it was time
for the annual Relay For Life Jailbreak on the lawn just outside of
Starbucks. The goal of the event is for people/passer byers to pay to
release me and other campus celebrities from “jail.” All of the money
raised goes to the American Cancer Society and you participants can set
their own personal goal as to how much money they would like to set as
their “bail.”

Of the six participats I was third behind the
stiff competition of Dr. Levester Johnson, VP of Student Affairs, and
men’s basketball coach, Brad Stevens. Coach Stevens brought in the most
at $584.17, in second was Dr. J. with $215.31, while I had $87.33. My
inability to speak really put me at a disadvantage in this competition.

Overall $961.22 was raised in an hour and a half so it was a successful event. Here are some pictures…


In
the afternoon I made my way over to Irwin Library for their second
annual READ Poster Unveiling. You may remember that I was a part of the
inaugural READ Poster unveiling last year. I have posted the poster
below for visual reference…

I did not have a new poster in this year’s set though. I was just on-hand as READ Poster alumni and for public relations.

Thanks to the wonders of technology, I was able to do my first appearance on Wednesday from the office using Blue2TV.
Brad Ward in the Office of Admission, the guy who had the idea behind
Blue2TV and set it all up, was giving a presentation for IACAC and
wanted to show off the web camera.

Of course, I’m not always
reliable when it comes to staying in view of the camera so my
colleagues in the office put some peanut butter on one of my bones and
laid it right in front of the camera so that I would stay in frame. I
just laid there licking at it the whole time so their plan worked.

Today, things got started with another Early Registration appearance for the Office of Admission.

Then
I got to go to a annual Student Government Association (SGA) reception
for their “Apple for You” program which recognizes those with a strong
dedication to students and the entire Butler Community.

I was
honored to be recognized like that, but at the same time, the reception
kind of bummed me out since it was catered with people food.

Later
in the day a couple students brought in their roommate’s new Golden
Retriever puppy named Payton (9 weeks). She was pretty cute!

Payton
and I got to play together and I had a lot of fun. When she left I
wasn’t ready to settle down so I ran around the office terrrorizing my
colleagues until I finally passed out. Good times.

Well, I think
that’s about it for now. Tomorrow I believe is just another day at the
office and then it’s on to the weekend where I will try and rest up for
another exciting schedule of events next week!
