Hannah WysongHometown: Fort Wayne, Ind.

Class Year: Class of 2012

Why did you choose Butler: I chose Butler because of its academic reputation, location in Indianapolis, the size of the student body and, when I took a tour, I just felt comfortable here.

Most memorable academic experience: I studied abroad in Jordan for a semester and learned an incredible amount. I gained such prospective on our world, the Arab world and the Middle East. It was an amazing, fun, inspiring experience.

Activities you’re involved with outside the classroom: I’ve been active in Independent Council, Student Sociology Association, Books for Peace, SGA and Dawg Pound (Go Dawgs!). I have also interned at the Center for Faith and Vocation and met a lot of great people through that.

The most important thing you’ve learned at Butler: I’ve learned about myself and my priorities by having to decide on classes, clubs and internships. Meeting new people has also forced me to define myself. I’ve learned about our country and our world – its history and current challenges – in my classes. The combination of these two things has given me direction in my life. I’ve really thought about what is important to me and what I can do to better the world.
