Butler University Reviews
I love Butler! The campus is beautiful and the classes are small, so you really get to know other students and professors. The professors are also very helpful when it comes to course work. We have our own police station that only works for the campus, not the city. We have a high ropes course and other activities that different organizations put on such as cookies and canvas and philanthropy events put on by the social Greek houses. Having access to the canal and downtown is also a very nice perk. There is a lot of construction and updates being made as part of the "2020 Vision" so tuition has increased, which is the only downfall.
I love Butler! They just built the new dorm Irvington which I live in as a freshman which is extremely nice and often compared to a high end hotel. Everyone I've met here has been so incredibly friendly, everyone holds doors open and smiles to you. My experience here has been nothing but positive, I love my professors and have already made close connections with the people in my classes through the small class size that allows for in-depth discussions. I love everything here and couldn't have asked for a better university!
Butler is an amazing school that gives all its students the best programs, opportunities to be involved on campus, and many study abroad chances. They are very friendly and helpful in figuring out financial aid, paying for college, programs to go into, and more. Indianapolis is also an amazing city! Lots of opportunities for work too!
