Spreading the Butler Love

As I said in a previous blog, I went to Wabash and Purdue this past weekend. It was so much fun! I had some pretty interesting experiences along the way so I thought I would share them.

Driving up to Purdue, to pick up my best friend Sara, was exhausting. Before I left to pick her up I did a team bonding experience that day for my Freshmen Business Experience class. It was really fun, but so tiring. We did a low ropes course and a high ropes course. The high ropes course was awesome and I got to swing down from the top, which I was really nervous about, but I am so glad I did it. Get Real day, which is what they call our team bonding day, started at 9 and ended at 330ish. When I got back to my dorm I packed, showered, and left. I needed a break, but did not have time!

This is how I got down from the high ropes course, so awesome!

On my way to Purdue I needed to stop and get gas. I didn’t think getting gas would turn into a Butler alumni party. On the back of my car I have two stickers, a Butler sticker and my Butler parking sticker, this caused quite the stir. A man pulled up behind me and started talking to me. At first I thought this was extremely weird, but then he explained to me he went to Butler and wished me the best of luck! Then when he left, the car beside me noticed my Butler shirt and asked if I went to school there. I told them that I was a freshman. The whole car freaked out. The couple in the car got engaged in Holcomb Gardens and they were also both alumni. For being such a small school I feel like Butler love is all around!

The Butler sticker that caused all the alumni to talk to me!

Anyway I picked up my best friend Sara and we drove to Wabash. Wabash is so pretty! It reminds me so much of Butler besides the fact it is an all men college. My weekend was great. I was so glad to be able to see some of my closest friends from high school, and then watch my best friend play baseball! No worries though I put Butler everywhere in my best friends room, mainly on their white board! I hope everyone had a great and safe weekend!

Hank's dorm has a cubbie in their hallway, Sara and I found this extremely entertaining to take pictures in.

Oh and I guess I use a lot of exclamation points in my blogs, so Rachel I hope this was not as bad as my other blog! And also I am obsessed with this commercial, but seriously who doesn’t love some party rock and hamsters!

    am frtusrated by language that enforces gender (and, of course, other) stereotypes. Take this USAToday article aimed at female college students. In case we forget, the article reminds women in America that our universities are actually
