students learn about different 
organizations on campus by 
visiting different tables at 
Block Party. 







Bulldogs Into The Streets 
otherwise known as BITS 
is a program that gives 
Freshman students the 
opportunity to volunteer 
at various places around 
Indianapolis. Students 
were put into groups 
that were led by 
upperclassmen, most of 
whom had been 
involved in BITS before. 
Spending the afternoon 
at various charities 
around town welcomed 
students into Butler's 
' olunteering community, 

'owed them to meet 
new people, and gave 
them a chance to help 
the community before 
classes started. 




With over 135 Student Organizations on campus, you are sure to find 
one that is right for you at block party! Below the Corn Hole Club tries 
to recruit members h\/ letting them test their skills out.

If students were not adventurous 

enough to participate in rock walls 

or obstacle courses, they were 

given a chance to create their 

own sand art. Right: Students were 

given an animal to fill with different 

colors of sand a souvenir of their 

wild college days 



What to do on the weekend is a 

question asked by new students ail 

over campus. To combat this issue, 

SGA's Program Board invited students 

to participate in "Where the Wild 

Things Are." A yearly event, with a 

different theme each year, the night 

was filled with fun games, free food, 

arts and crafts. Free give ways like slap 

bracelets, wild sunglasses, and animal 

masks were sure ways to give students 

something to do and remind them of 

the good old days of school carnivals.

BLUE, WHERE ARE VdD? 

Missing Mascot V^^ 







-^O 



t 



The university began the Fall 
2008 semester without an 
important member of the 
Butler family. The costume of 
mascot, Butler Blue, had gone 
missing. 

The search for Blue gained 
national attention and 
mascots across the country, 
including the Indianapolis 
Colt's Blue, joined in search. 

The missing costumes were 
found in late November but 
were too damaged to be 

used. 

Butler's new mascot, Hink, 
made his debut during 
basketball season. 



The Colt's 
mascot, also 
by the name 
of Blue, filled 
in for the 
missing Butler 
Blue at the 
Franklin 
football 
game. 
Apparently 
the reward 
was big for 
his dawg 
friend. 




Blue II enjoys attending gomes and being Butler's 
live mascot. He can frequently be found around 
campus.

Ali Sebald claimed, "Rowing 
through the fatigue and blisters" 
was the hardest thing about 
crew. To achieve this state of 
exhaustion Butler's crew team 
spent a large amount of time on 
the water this fall, but for many it 
was worth it. When asked what 
her most memorable moment 
this year was, Lindsey Moore 
stated, "I loved meeting all of the 
really cool people from Butler 
and lUPUI. They make all 
moments fun, but I would have 
to say, my first race."

The construction at Butler, no matter 
how long it may seem to be, all 
ends up being fabulous in the end. 

One of the most exciting building 
projects of the year was the 
construction of the new addition to 
the Pharmacy Building. 

Students got to experience the 
hustle and bustle of project 
coordination as they watched the 
new Pharmacy Building slowly 
become whole, 

Additionally, while students could 
not help with the construction here 
on campus, they were given the 
opportunity to be involved in

involved in club 
sports is a great 
way to keep up 
with sports skills. 
As many 
students 
discovered, 
club sports are 
an opportunity 
to shine. 
Whether 
through intense 
soccer or 
lacrosse 
games, or laid 
bock games of 
ultimate 
frisbee, 
students were 
able to take a 
break from 
studying and 
stay in shape.

moves to show their 
excitement for the weeks

College tennis is one of those rare 
sports where the results of one 
individual's efforts affects the 
outcome of the whole team. 
Women's tennis here at Butler showed 
how concentration and drive to 
connect with the ball created positive 
outcomes.

V . BU and Acknowledge 



^ 



This year the yearbook staff attempted to take a look and discover the 
different ways that students expressed thier individuality and collective spirit 
of BU over the course of three seasons. From academics, to clubs, to sports, 
and campus life Butler students displayed fun and giving natures no matter 
v\/hat time of year it was. 



The editors of this book would like to acknowledge and thank oil the people 
that helped make this book possible. First, we have to acknowledge all 
Butler University and all of its groups and programs who without there would 
be no need for a yearbook. Next, we would specifically like to thank the 
different staff, departments, and peers that provided information when it 
was most needed, including Butler Athletics, David McCullough, Jennie 
Jones, Samantha Bane, Chappell Graduation Images, Beth Alexander, Lisa 
Markus, Lindsey Joo, Fred Yangia, the Modern Language Center. 
Additionally we would like to thank all those people we might hove 
forgotten, but who submitted photos, information, and other support 
throughout the year. Everything you gave us was greatly appreciated. To 
our Staff Advisor, Frank Council, and our Representatives at Jostens, Mike 
Conlon and Susant Taylor, we give our undying appreciation for your help, 
assistance and patience as we finished this book. Finally, we thank and 
acknowledge the staff of the yearbook who stuck with us as we tried to 
figure out what was going on. Without the support, dedication and hard 
work of Morgan Pepmeier, Rachel Colby, Jennifer Cioybaugh, Kozmyn 
Perry, Jackie Sabol, Olivia Ingle, Ben Cottongim, and Molly Poracky we 
would not have the book we hove today. 





As much as we have tried to get everything in this book, and all our 
facts straight we acknowledge that this book is incomplete and 
subject to error. To those we have misplaced, wronged, or ignored 
we give our sincerest apologies. However, we ore proud of what 
this year's staff has accomplished and feel it is time to close this 
chapter of our lives. The 2008-2009 school year was filled with ups 
and downs, highs and low, and stability mixed with unexpected 
changes, but through it all Butler, its student, faculty and staff 
weathered it all and produced a good year. We con only hope 
that the future will hold as many good memories as this one did. 

Beth Smedinghoff and Kristo Sorenson 
Editors of the 2008-2009 Drift
