About Me:

My name is Steph, and I am a senior Marketing major with a Communication Studies minor. Since this is my last year at Butler, my main goal is to enjoy every moment that I have left, while doing as much as humanly possible. I am a marketing analyst at the Butler Business Accelerator, a Speakers Lab tutor, and a Butler blogger (obviously). I also am an Alpha Phi, the President of the Butler University Student Foundation, a member of Alpha Kappa Psi (a professional business fraternity), and a member of the Butler American Marketing Association. In the small amount of free time that I do have, I love crafting, watching large amounts of television, and enjoying my favorite comfort foods, like sweet tea.

The Longest Night at Butler – Spring Sports Spectacular

Last weekend was a pretty big weekend here at Butler – it was Spring Sports Spectacular weekend.  SSS is a 12 hour event that benefits the Special Olympics, and we get to spend the entire night doing different activities and sports.  I was signed up to play euchre, shuffleboard, and to do Jeopardy, so I was pretty excited…since they are #1 – my favorite events at Spring Sports…and #2 – the only things that I really could do since I don’t really play sports.

I knew what I was getting myself into with euchre when I signed up, because a few years ago it took them 5 hours to narrow 8 teams down to one winner.  If you know anything about euchre – you had to win 2 games out of 3…meaning you had to get to 10 points…twice.  And if you don’t know anything about euchre, just know that this could take forever….just to advance to the next round.  I played with my roommate, Lauren, who loves playing euchre almost as much as I do.  We are both from southern Indiana, where euchre is popular…and we both used to show cattle, where euchre is basically what you do for hours each day.  So we were pumped to finally play together, until we realized how long it was going to take.  In the end….we played for so long that I missed shuffleboard and she missed a volleyball game…and we lost too.

For the next few hours I floated around watching other events everywhere…because I didn’t have anything to do until Jeopardy at 3 a.m.  Around 2:15 I hit a wall – and it was rough.  I didn’t know if I would be able to stay awake during Jeopardy…I didn’t even think about actually being competitive.  Turns out…Jeopardy is pretty awesome…and I’m pretty awesome at it too.  I won, and that totally gave me my second wind.  After that I watched some badminton, volleyball, and ultimate frisbee…and I didn’t even feel like going home until 5.  So – I think it’s safe to say that my final SSS was a success.

One of the more intense events at SSS - the spelling bee.

    I still don’t know how you guys do that. I would be asleep by 1am. It sounds like fun though.
