Page 2 Day in the Life on Butler's Campus Seen by an Undergraduate Member T old early on in his Butler career to take advantage of all that Butler offers by connecting with professors, participating in student organizations, and taking on leadership opportunities—it's clear Logan Schwering '18 heeded these wise words. Just look at the schedule of his typical day. An Eagle Scout and a runner who averages 25 to 35 miles per week, Logan also gets a workout carrying his backpack all day. His must-haves to get through the day include the obvious— textbooks, notebooks, laptop, pencil bag, and several extras: snacks, KGP—Knowing God Personally—booklets ("never know when there may be a friend who needs encouragement"); dry-erase markers, loose change, a spoon, and glasses. Now we know why he never turns down Pancake Night in Atherton! Logan typically studies in a classroom in Jordan Hall, listening to music; unless he's studying for an exam. Group studying? He says only with people who he knows will keep him focused and motivated. To stay motivated and recharge during free time and on the weekends, Logan takes advantage of good weather by running on the Canal and Monon trails, as well as exploring Broad Ripple and downtown Indianapolis. Logan enjoys cheering on the Dawgs from the Dawg Pound and trying new restaurants with friends. Unable to pick a single favorite experience at Butler, Logan came up with seven. The list included dinner with 10 Bulldogs (thank you, alumni!), serving as a resident assistant, being elected vice president of student initiatives for SGA, and studying abroad as part of Leadership London. While there are lots of must-dos before he graduates, he has two in particular on his mind: going to Devour Downtown in Indy and seeing the men's basketball team win the NCAA championship (no pressure, though). 7 a.m: Wake up—time for an early-morning workout before classes! 7:30-9:15 a.m: Workout at the HRC or go for a run around campus/Indy area. "I love starting my day with a long run!" 9:30 a.m: Quick shower, get dressed, and pack backpack for class. Let the long day of class begin! 10 a.m: First class of the day, the lecture-based GHS: Postcolonial Studies—Caribbean. 11 a.m: Next up, is a hands-on information Technology class. Noon: Lunch in Atherton with some fellow RAs, then back to his room to pack his bag for afternoon classes. 1 p.m.: Off to Organizational Behavior in the basement of Irwin Library—at least we get to mix it up with lectures, presentations, and in-class activities. 2:25 p.m.: Time for Business Law in Holcomb Observatory…wait, why are we in the observatory, again? 3:45 p.m.: Do homework at library before meetings begin. 5:15 p.m.: Ross Hall staff meeting…hopefully it includes some good snacks! 6 p.m.: Dinner in Atherton. Fingers crossed it's Pancake Night! 7 p.m.: Check in and study with Fraternity Brothers at Phi Delta Theta before Student Initiatives Board meeting at 9 p.m. 10 p.m.: Finish up homework and study in Jordan Hall before heading back to my room to talk with residents—you never know who might stop in to chat! Midnight: Get ready for bed. Every day is an adventure, but I'm blessed to be a Butler Bulldog! Name: Logan Schwering Hometown: Batesville, Ind. Major: Finance and Marketing double major Class Year: Junior Logan's Typical Monday A leader in the classroom. Starting the day bright and early. Classes and meetings—staying on schedule!
