Butler University Reviews
Rating 3.61 out of 5 1,343 reviews
Small school feel, easy to make life long friends. I had so much fun at Butler. Most people are super involved in either SGA, greek life, or athletics. Most professors are super nice and really want to work with you to learn and will go out of their way to help you network. However, the negatives of a small school are that everyone knows everyone's business and things can get dramatic for no reason.
Cozy campus, everyone is friendly. Easy to get around, great facilities. Residence halls are amazing.
I went here to visit the college in order to see if I would like tho enroll here or not. The buffet is AMAZING and the mascot is adorble. The people there are very kind. Overall hreat experience!
The University itself is beautiful and I find the overall staff to be engaged and prepared. That being said, in my department alone this year I not only came in in times of Covid but we lost 2 great staff members. One from leaving for a different job opportunity after just being tenured. As a result of the economic condition of the university, it is my belief that the professors who remain there have been left with too much on their backs and too many students assigned advisement to a point that the staff-student relationship is hurt and I know I felt left out in the wind come my first advisement session to sign up for the new classes of 2nd semester, and do not blame my advisor at the time for Political Science who I know tries her best. This varies depending on study certainly. Campus life is vibrant even in time of pandemic, residence life team is amazing. The disconnect between the upper administration and the SGA needs addressed. Overall, however, I do recommend this University.
My favorite part of Butler is the small community aspect. The school is small enough to where everyone in greek life is friends with people in other houses, and friends with those unaffiliated. The professors have class sizes so small that they are on a first name basis with you, and get to know you on a personal level. These are just some of the important aspects that I love so much about our community.
I had some bass lessons online, they went smoothly just like in-person lessons. My brother took some online courses as well and said they were fine.
My brother attends school here and he loves it. I take upright bass lessons here and my teacher is great. The campus is beautiful and welcoming.
Butler is about to get attention through hosting the NCAA tournament, these are things that I wish I had known about Butler before I chose it. The administration is extremely controlling of the students. Their main goal is to get as much money out of you as possible. The 3 year live in requirement allows Butler to overcharge for housing. They overcharge for parking passes and sell too many passes. BUPD is strict about drinking/parties. Social life has declined greatly. Dining on campus is horrible with very few options . The admin acts like it cares about student mental health, but won’t give a single mental health day for students to catch up on work. Fall 2020 was a rollercoaster as the school cancelled classes twice, 4 weeks total, for small covid outbreaks. Butler has a LARGE gender gap. It felt 70% female and 30% male. I was disappointed in how Butler kept it’s campus. Academic buildings (besides Lacy) felt very old and dirty.$56,000 tuition should get you better.
I felt for my professors, as the admin kept switching between fully online and hybrid classes in Fall 2020. However, many of my professors did not teach well through zoom. I don't feel like I have learned much in my online courses here.
My professors have accommodated and transferred to online learning pretty successfully. I am able to gain knowledge and communication with my professors and peers pretty well online. Overall I am having a good experience with online learning and have been given the help I’ve needed when necessary or asked for. I am able to be directed to the appropriate resources and people by the staff when I have had questions or technical difficulties connecting to the internet for my classes.
Overall, I have loved my experience here at Butler University. The campus is beautiful, there are always many fun activities going on, and the professors all truly care about you. Since Butler is a smaller-sized school, you can truly get to know your professors due to the small class sizes and I love that I have gotten to form relationships with them!
The professors at Butler did an excellent job of making sure that our learning experience would be just as valuable while online as it would be in the classroom. I found that I was learning quite well even in classes that only ever met on zoom. The only thing I wish was different about my online learning experience was that we could still get a Fall or Spring Break-even if just for a few days.
Professors were very accommodating and flexible in terms of their teaching and ensuring that students are comfortable, engaged, but still challenged.
It took a while to adjust to online classes, but the professors made a great effort in trying to make it easier for everyone.
I love Butler's campus and the overall environment. I came from a fairly large high school (graduated with a class of around 550) and Butler is a pretty small college. I like the personal feeling of it and all of my professors have made it easy to connect and ask for help.
Butler University has done a good job academically during this time with COVID. They tried to offer some in person classes, hybrid and e learning. They are however completely lacking in providing social opportunities for their students. Granted the world is completely different right now and the college experience is far from normal but mentally students need more than just classes and isolation in their dorm rooms. I wish they would focus alittle attention on their students' overall well being instead of simply only caring about their "Covid numbers" and "looking bad."
Began the semester with half hybrid schedule and half online. As the semester progressed more and more professors moved to e learning.
