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