No other week beats the hype and sense of community than Homecoming week. The best part of a jam-packed schedule full of school-wide events is the competition and willingness to do things outside of your comfort zone. Whether that be dressing up as the Powerpuff Girls or cheering on your teammates at the volleyball tourney; everyone's guaranteed to have a great time.

1. Homecoming pairings and competition 

The random homecoming pairings announced each year start off the year strong, when everyone gets hype and motivated to win the most participation for the week. Competing with other houses and dorms is what makes the craziness of the week so much fun!

2. Making new unexpected friends 

Going to homecoming events from soccer games to blanket making, there's plenty of room to meet and talk to new people that you never have. It's always fun to come together with people you don't know to reach the same goal, and making new friends is always fun!

3. So much school spirit!

There's nothing better than a school full of students with the same passion for school pride. The Butler Way is truly relevant when looking at the high participation and competition during homecoming week! Nothing makes me more proud to be a Dawg.

4. Unlimited FREE stuff 

From attending any homecoming-related event, there's almost always free food involved. And maybe if you're lucky, a free t-shirt or two! I mean, what else would bring in as many people as these events do without the free stuff?

5. Late nights and early mornings 

Whether it's staying up all night long for Lawn Decs or late night practice for Yell Like Hell, no one gets enough sleep during Homecoming week. Which makes Homecoming weekend even more fun (the earliest morning yet)!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
