This is my senior year….and this is my final introduction post on my Butler blog. (This is my 4th year as a blogger….and yes, I am getting nostalgic….about a blog post.) Just in case you haven’t read my blog much, or even if you have, this will hopefully give you an idea of what kind of things I will be writing about this year…so get excited!
This year I am a senior Marketing major, which means that I am finally taking classes that I love (after three years of Finance, Accounting, and other things that aren’t so fun), and I also have a Communication Studies minor, which means that I give lots of presentations. I really enjoy both of these areas, because the faculty in both departments are just amazing (as most Butler professors are), and they give me a chance to try completely different things, like taking classes that combine the study of leadership with developing presentation skills, and classes all about retailing or sales. As a business major, I will complete two internships before I graduate, one of which I completed this summer with Vera Bradley, and another that I am doing now, with Slingshot SEO. I am so glad that I have both taken care and planned now, because the last thing that I want is to have to be searching for a post-grad job and an internship at the same time….it’s hard enough just finding one!
I am definitely what you would classify as an over committed student, because I love being involved…a little too much. I’m in a sorority, Alpha Phi, where I’m one of the New Member Educators (so I am helping our new members with their transition to sorority life), which means that I’m also living in the house with 75 other girls (so I don’t have to cook for myself…always a plus…I’m all for prolonging the inevitable). I’m also in Alpha Kappa Psi (a professional business fraternity), BAMA (Butler American Marketing Association), and BUSF (Butler University Student Foundation), among other things. Those are my main clubs for my senior year – and I am so excited to somewhat narrow down a list of about 12, to 4.
When I’m not working, in meetings, or in class, I love hanging out at Starbucks, crafting, watching TV, finding good sweet tea in Indianapolis, and sleeping. Since I really don’t have much free time to spend doing these things….I don’t do them all a lot….including sleeping. Nonetheless, I do what I can…and I love it.
This year is going to be a great one….even though it will be outrageously busy. Even though I might have a breakdown or two…I know that I am just going to make the most of my time here at Butler….and blog about every moment!
