Living on Butler campus you start to take certain things for granted. Like the fact that it only takes you tops maybe 5 minutes to get to class. Or the fact that we have history in our own backyard with Hinkle Fieldhouse. Or maybe it’s the fact that our teachers take the time to really make sure we are understanding our lessons and class. But something that may not get mentioned a lot that we take for granted is our Health and Recreation Complex or HRC.
If you go to a big state school like Purdue or IU your health center may be far away from you. Although a lot of us think that the HRC is far away it really is only a ten minute walk. Yes, here at Butler 10 minute walks are long for us. We are spoiled. The HRC is awesome. With everyone trying to lose weight or get toned for Spring Break there has been a lot of people at the HRC.
I really like the track at the HRC, and now I am obsessed with the bikes there. If anything I think working out is such a great way to destress and refocus on school work or anything else that needs to be done. It’s awesome though because as a student at Butler you get to use all the HRC offers, whether it be classes or even the pool! It’s great! Here’s a video about the HRC!
One more thing if everyone could do something for me that would be amazing. If you didn’t know one of our fellow Butler students is up for the Lowe’s Senior Class Award. It’s Ronald Nored! He is a very deserving guy and is awesome, so if you could take the time to vote for him that would be great!
In 24 hours I take my first college exam. I am freaking out. Exams in college count for way more of your grade than they do in high school, and that scares me. Not only that this test is over the Hindu religion with words that I cannot even pronounce. If you know me around campus, and do not see me studying please yell at me!
I have started to realize where are good places for me to study and where are bad places. I don’t understand how anyone could study in their room. I cannot focus whatsoever in my room. There are way too many distractions. Honestly what has helped me is going to Jordan Hall!
Jordan Hall usually has a lot of classrooms that stay unlocked for students to study in. I like it better than Irwin because I feel like I can spread things out more and really get more accomplished. Even though I don’t really like Irwin, I love the science library that is stuck between Holcomb and the Pharmacy building!
I have my own little special hidden place there, but last time it was taken so obviously not that hidden anymore. I am able to focus so well in that library because barely anyone talks. You could possibly hear a pin drop in their. Also if I am struggling to focus I go to HRC and run. Even though I hate running, it usually helps me focus on my homework!
The track at the HRC!
Good luck to everyone taking exams this week. If my exam goes well you may hear about it on here, but if it is not so hot… well let’s just ignore that!
And I know this is old, but can we please give Brad Stevens a shout out for making Butler proud with his dance moves? I know it’s college football season, but I can’t help but get a little excited about college basketball.
