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.

Inauguration 2011

Last year when I learned past president Bobby Fong was leaving Butler, I was definitely sad. After all, how many university presidents will let themselves be hoisted onto the shoulders of their students to crowd surf during Final Four celebrations?

I must say, I have met new president Jim Danko a few times, along with his wife Bethany, mostly through activities with the Butler Catholic Community or with Butler Hillel. I don’t know much about President Danko’s administrative policies, but he is always friendly. And Bethany Danko — who is extremely sweet — bakes a mean cookie.

(She is known as The Cookie Lady or The Cookie Fairy among the BCC.)

This Saturday was President Danko’s inauguration, and while I couldn’t attend the actual installation ceremony (see Studio Dress, preparations for), I went to the student breakfast in the Johnson Room. Open to all Butler students, the event mixed breakfast (bacon and the infamous Atherton cheesy eggs, anyone?) with President Danko and First Lady Bethany Danko with other adminstrative people with Blue II. Guess who was the star of the event?

That’s right, Blue II even has a tux for the inaugural gala tonight…

    Well, I didn’t make it to the Inauguration, and I’m not special enough to land an invitation to the Inaugural Gala that night, so I wanted to participate somehow… I definitely enjoyed it. (And the pictures are from Blue II’s Flickr stream.)

    Great pics. I was so bummed that I missed it!

    He should have a tutu, you’re right! I’ll tell him the next time I see him.

    Don’t you think Blue needs a tutu to promote the nutcracker? What is the male version of the tutu? Tights?
