So another year has been and gone! I thought as a recent graduate and newly appointed SCDO/ARA that it would be great to have a sum up of the year from a student perspective. I hope not only that this first blog will be interesting for you, but will also be a good reference for me in a years’ time when I’m old and have forgotten what student life is all about! I think it’s safe to say that Will Garrison did a fantastic job over the year and has really left some big boots to fill! I hope I can make you proud! Anyway, sob story over, onto the good stuff!
Since the last post in October the year has been none stop action, with the new Freshers really settling into college life quickly and becoming involved from the start. The first JCR meeting of the year saw 3 Freshers being elected for the positions of Tour Rep, Mole Master and Quizmaster. The enthusiasm and engagement of this new intake was a joy to see.
The Butler spirit didn’t stop there though! Nearly every formal this year has been filled within seconds of sign up being open; bar events have had great turnouts and numerous new sports and societies have been created! We now boast over 30 societies, from the good old GRAW to the new Nail Soc, it cannot be disputed that we are indeed a college that caters for all!
What makes Butler so special though (in my opinion anyway!) are the events that take place here. Below is a brief rundown of what has occurred over the year.
Graduation was an emotional time for all involved, whether they were students or parents. And the graduation dinners were very popular and fantastically planned events! I feel so privileged to be able to stay in College another year and support a new set of students, the prospect of leaving and joining the big bad world is daunting and I wish everyone out there the best of luck! But whatever you do, wherever you are, Butler College will always be your home and be here for you! (Gosh could I make that sound any cornier?!)
I hope to update this blog about once every month so please do keep checking back if you would like to stay in touch with the developments that are happening here! And I hope I see some of your friendly faces at our upcoming reunions! As usual here are the Plugs for all the social media…
