About Me:

My name is Olivia and I am a senior at Butler University. I spend most of my time in Lilly Hall as a BFA Dance Performance major. When not in rehearsal or ballet class, I write papers for my English Literature second major. In my super-abundant, never-lacking, this-is-highly-sarcastic spare time, I attempt to cook in my apartment kitchen, watch Youtube videos of ballet, knit sweaters that never seem to come to an end, and read books both silly and serious. If I could take any class at Butler just for kicks, I'd go for DiffyQ.

Focus on Schwitzer

Schwitzer Hall is the all-female, freshmen residence hall on Butler’s campus. I lived there with a roommate my first year at Butler. Last post, I compared Schwitzer to ResCo (where I lived as a sophomore). A bit more about Schwitzer:

  • Three floors (plus a basement), four units on each floor. The first floor, for example, was 1 West, 1 North West, 1 East, and 1 North East.
  • Laundry room in the basement.
  • Only a service elevator.
  • Communal bathrooms, one for each unit.
  • Mostly doubles, but singles and triples are available.
  • Mostly new students, but I remember a unit of sophomores in the basement.
  • Main lobby with mailboxes, front desk, piano, chairs, and restrooms.
  • Extremely sociable… at least my unit was!

Here are some of the activities I remember from my freshmen days with my Schwitzer unit, 1W (or “one dubb,” as we liked to say).

A canal-side show.

Attending a Hispanic festival with my RA.

Riding the fairground rides that were randomly set up on Butler's campus (I forget why).

Movie night in my freshman dorm room.

Decorating for Halloween. Faculty members bring their kids through the residence halls for trick-or-treating!

Voting for the first time in the presidential election with my RA as a witness.

If you are about to move in to Schwitzer, you are indeed set to have a fun first semester.

    It really does. I like my apartment a bit better though. :) I’m happy with where I am now, in terms of school, dance, and residence halls.

    I love these old photos. Does it feel like forever ago since you were in Schwitzer?
