#TBT: Freshman Year At Butler

Believe it or not I wasn’t always this awesome. Just kidding, I’m still not all that awesome. However, the other day I thought about it, and when I come back from study abroad I will be a senior. I guess the saying is true that time flies when you’re having fun. There are a couple things looking back that I think every person coming into Butler should do or know!

#1. JOIN EVERYTHING
Don’t get too crazy. Join things that will mean something to you. For example, I am involved with our student fan section, Dawg Pound. I love Butler basketball and wanted to do more than just cheer in the student section, which we really need everyone to come to every game from here on out. That’s my shameless plug. I am also part of College Mentors for Kids. I love how many of the kids who go through College Mentors are Kids whose parents have not been to college, and they are able to learn through us the possibilities they have. That was something I could relate to. Make sure you make time for academics obviously, but you will realize very quickly that Butler students love to be involved. One more shameless plug give Greek life a try. When I first came to Butler I never thought I would be in a sorority, and now I can’t imagine it any other way.

#2. GET TO KNOW YOUR PROFESSORS
Some of them may not be your absolute favorite person, but it is always good to get to know your professors. I am still working on this, but professors cannot only help you find internships/jobs they can also be great references. On top of that professors want to help you. Most of my professors would meet with me at any time and help with anything I needed. In the long run your professors will be your best friend when you think you don’t understand anything.

#3. ENJOY IT.
Enjoy everything you do. Don’t stress too much. Obviously it’s college you’ll stress a little, but take everything in the moment. I never thought when I went to Butler I would experience the Super Bowl, Jimmy Fallon, B.o.B, The Price is Right, NCAA Tournament, and so much more. Sometimes being goofy and not giving a care in the world is what you need to do. Don’t worry about what people will think just do you.

I am so jealous of all the graduating seniors who are now #ButlerBound. You are about to have the best four years of your life, and I would give anything to trade you!
