Student Voices: Life After Graduation

When you start college, you don’t really think about life after graduation. You are just thinking about getting through each week without having a breakdown. My college days went by just as fast, if not faster, as everyone kept telling me. Before I knew it, I had my diploma in hand and was working effortlessly […]

Student Voices: Fellow College Students, Look to the Future

At Butler, my average day consists of classes, work, an internship, extracurricular activities, and then homework after that. During any breaks, I try for a social life, sometimes even successfully!

Student Voices: The Next Step

“So, you are graduating this May, right? What are your plans?” Is “I don’t know” an okay answer? Senior college students dread family gatherings because they are afraid that relatives will ask what they plan to do next. Pie and advice. In reality, students need to fear the new year. It is (already) early March, […]

Student Voices: Winter in Indiana

Winter can be a strange time, especially in Indiana. One day it will be snowing at 22 degrees outside, and the next it is sunny and 75. It makes for hard decisions like what to wear, but most importantly what to do to entertain yourself when this not-so-great weather is here to stay for a […]

Student Voices: Finding your second home

In college, it’s tricky to find a place that you can claim as your own. Each year, you are placed into a different living situation with different roommates, where you have to have the discussion about dirty dishes yet again. Twice a year, your classes and schedule change, so just when you get used to […]
