At Butler, everyone loves to honor and appreciate the seniors…which I love. For the last few weeks, we have had special events all the time, which has made life busy but obviously really fun…
This year I was fortunate enough to be selected as a part of the Top 100 Students at Butler, along with one of the other bloggers, Olivia! It is such an honor to be a part of that group of students, and they held a wonderful dinner to celebrate the program and to announce the Top 10 men and women at Butler. I think the night of the dinner was when my parents and I started to realize that I’m almost done….and that the last 4 years have just flown by. Also – a special Congratulations goes out to Olivia for being named to the Top 10 women!
At the end of Alpha Phi’s Senior Week we always have a brunch for the seniors and their parents. We eat the traditional Saturday brunch that we have loved on for the last 4 years, our littles each say a few nice words about us, they sing some songs that are special to Alpha Phi, and they give away a few senior awards. It was just an all around amazing time to spend with my sorority sisters and our parents, because they all hear us talk about Alpha Phi, but I don’t think that they ever really understand what the sisterhood means to us all, until they see it at an event like the Senior Brunch.
Every year during Senior Week at Alpha Phi, we have a time where the seniors hand down all of their Alpha Phi attire, memorabilia, and anything else random that we have accumulated over the years. Some people give away everything, but I really wasn’t ready to part with some of my things just yet…so I kept some of my favorite shirts and sweatshirts. Partially I kept some because I like them so much, and partially because I wouldn’t have any other clothes to wear if I did. But I did pass along quite a few good things, like my A Phi license plate, a Sarah Palin calendar, and some crafts I made over the years.
