Bulldogs Into the Streets (B.I.T.S.)

Bulldogs Into The StreetsWhat is Bulldogs Into the Streets?

Bulldogs Into the Streets (B.I.T.S.) is a large-scale day of service hosted by the Butler Volunteer Center annually for new incoming students at Butler. New students are split into small groups led by returning students. These groups head out to several different local service organizations across the city to volunteer in various ways.

On August 27, 2013, over half of the freshmen class participated in Bulldogs Into the Streets. The freshmen were divided into groups with two upperclassmen, who served as site leaders. The students were sent to 17 agencies around Indianapolis, including: Gleaners Food Bank, the Ronald McDonald House, Global Peace Initiatives, Damar Services, and Auntie Mame's Child Development. During the day of service, the freshmen were able to build friendships with members of their incoming class, who represent a variety of different majors, hometowns, and backgrounds. Additionally the students, both in and out of state, were able to create a connection for service in Indianapolis within their first week of being on campus.
