My experience at Butler has been nothing less than phenomenal. With going away for the first time, from a small town, my academic advisor saw my sadness. He emailed me and had me come to his office on several occasions during the first couple weeks. His words, "Chelsea, you are not going home." He was my second dad, mentor and an actual professor my first semester. I am forever grateful to him! I majoring in Sports Media and have already made huge strides in my field. The professors and athletic department are so welcoming and accommodating to their students! I now know what they mean when you hear, "The Butler Way!" Everything is absolutely top notch here at this incredible institution!
Review Butler University
My experience at Butler University was indescribable. Butler is a small university, with a big school connection. Having attended Butler for 4 years, the liberal arts education has provided me with a sense of preparedness if my field of interest. I took an interdisciplinary social science major that allowed me to explore different facets of the field. My workload consisted of public health classes, pharmacy elective, psychology and environmental classes. Butler provides a sense of togetherness. Because it is a small university, the one-to-one interaction with professors and administration made my experience more personal. I was more of a name, rather than a number. With a small university, networking with faculty and staff was easy to do. Networking is crucial in order to become successful in one's future professional career. Professors worked around the student's schedule rather the other way around. This speaks volume as the care and effort the university has in students.
Butler has a wonderful over-all feel to it. You feel at home the second you walk on campus. The professors are great and actually care that you do well. Opportunity is everywhere if you're not lazy. Take advantage of your surroundings (Indy), there's plenty to do! I love this school, Go Dawgs!
