Happy Winter Break To Me!

I AM FINALLY FINISHED WITH FINALS. To say I’m excited is an understatement. The final I took today will be the last time I am in a Butler classroom until August 27th 2014. It is crazy to think I will be gone that long, but I am really excited to start my journey in Australia. As all of you know I will keep you updated on all my adventures! However, until I leave I’ll still be keeping myself busy! Here’s what I will be doing until February comes around!

#1. Recruitment Counselor
From January 6th-12th I will be helping with recruitment! I have been recruitment counselor this year, but it really all comes down to the week of recruitment where I do the most of my work. I will be back on campus during this week helping the freshmen with their week during recruitment and also just having a lot of fun!

#2. Firebelly Marketing
I will be working basically full time or as much as full time as I can be until I leave for down under! I’m really excited to be back here as often as I was during the summer, and know everything that’s going on again! I also blog for Firebelly Marketing, so if you want to read some things I write for Firebelly click here! That leads to the main blog page, but if you scroll through you can find some of the blogs I have wrote!

#3. Planning for Australia
Obviously between all the other things I will be doing I will be getting ready for 4 months in Australia! I’m already starting to get all my stuff together but I have no idea what I’m packing or what I need to bring, so I need to start thinking about that. If you have been to Australia suggestions would be extremely helpful!

But first things first…. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND JIMMY FALLON ON SNL THIS WEEKEND…. yeah that’s what I’ll be doing.

Extremely Excited

I’m extremely excited and blessed to say that I was chosen for two new positions! I will be the new president of College Mentors for Kids next year, and also a Recruitment Counselor! I am so grateful for the opportunities that are coming to me from these two positions!

My interview for College Mentors for Kids was a 45 minute interview. The time of the interview alone scared me enough. The interview was not bad at all, and I’m really excited for the changes that the organization is deciding to take in the coming years. If you don’t know what College Mentors for Kids is, let me explain.

College Mentors for Kids is a nonprofit organization based out of Indianapolis. It was started at Indiana University and it’s mission is to connect college students with the most to give to kids who need it most. As president I will be overseeing a lot that goes on, but also having a lot of communication with headquarters. I’m really excited for this opportunity and to grow a lot as a person and a leader.

I am just as pumped for being a recruitment counselor too! Recruitment Counselors are girls in sororities that chose to give up their letters for a semester so they can be an unbiased opinion for the new girls going through recruitment. At the end of recruitment the girls will all find out what houses we were in. So for next fall I will not say what house I’m in and not blog,tweet,facebook,show what house I am in. Also I have to hide a lot of things on my Facebook, Twitter, and my blog. The freshmen like to figure out what house their recruitment counselor is in and will do anything to find out. This past year I heard that girls went through every single tweet one counselor had to find out what house she was in. Yes, it can get that intense.

Even though I may not be wearing my letters physically I know I am always wearing my letters no matter what.

Here We Go Again

It’s that time of year again to sign up for positions in organizations and clubs. I think this time I am going a little more crazy, but I’m excited for whatever opportunities I receive! Here’s the full list of positions I’m considering!

VP or President of College Mentors for Kids
Currently I am Director of Recruitment for College Mentors for Kids. I really love this organization because it takes kids from inner city schools or areas that aren’t the best and provides them with the opportunity to visit a college campus once a week and see that they can achieve anything they set out to do. I have this interview on Monday. It’s 45 minutes long, so I’m slightly nervous!

Recruitment Counselor
A Recruitment Counselor is someone in a sorority who has already been through both sides of recruitment (going through as a potential new member, as well as going through as an active member) who decides that they would like to be a leader for the freshmen who go through next recruitment round. Doing this means that you must disassociate yourself from your house. Basically no one can know that you are whatever sorority you are. I really want to do this because I think it will be so much fun as well as I want the freshmen to experience the best time I had through recruitment, because it can be extremely stressful. I have this interview on Monday as well!

PR/Marketing, Dawg Pound
I’m currently on Dawg Pound as a member of Street Team, but I want to have a higher position. This is based on a majority vote by those in Dawg Pound, so we’ll see what happens. Although I am thinking about applying for a Sports Marketing internship at Hinkle so I’m not exactly sure if I will go through with Dawg Pound. It all depends. Either way I plan to be all over Butler athletics next year!

It’s insane to think that next year is my junior year and that I will be advancing further into the organizations that I have been in since freshmen year. I can’t wait to see what happens!
