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.

Family Shout-Out

I have to backtrack a little to The Nutcracker. I’m sure everyone is sick of hearing about it… but I want to acknowledge all the family members who traveled (some so far!) to see and support me. I’m so grateful I was able to see you! Also, Grandma, those cake pops were delicious — especially the peppermint one. I cannot wait to see everyone next week during my winter break.

Cake pops!

A note about traveling: Looking at out-of-state schools? When I was in high school, making decisions about college, I knew I wanted to go to Butler. It has a serious, classical-ballet based dance program with a good English department in a liberal arts setting — and this is not a common combination. Just keep in mind, though, that travel will increase the cost of an out-of-state school, especially depending on how often you go home. Friends who live in California might spend a shorter break with family/friends closer to Indianapolis; I’ve traveled home to Virginia for Fall Break only once. Distance did not alter my admissions decision, but it is still an important factor to consider… especially since those acceptance letters should be arriving soon for Early Decision admissions!

    Haha, thank you Kristen. I’m just happy I have three cake pops, I think.
