    The opportunities for undergraduate research are amazing. Butler hosts its own conference every year and invites other colleges from across the US to come present. Many of the faculty encourage student's to go support one another as they present their studies. They also work alongside you if you are interested in studying abroad. They are so flexible about it--just make sure to bring it up with them before its too late! I really believe that Butler does a great job at preparing its students for the workforce/grad school, which is of high importance to everyone. It wasn't my first choice when I was looking for colleges, but looking back, I wouldn't trade it for anything!

    True, the tuition is quite a bit higher than state schools; however, it is much more inclusive than larger schools. For instance, students get into all sports games, including basketball, for free as well as discounts on concerts and speakers, such as Maya Angelou, that come to Clowes Memorial Hall. There are amazing opportunities for the students here - I personally have seen Maya Angelou, Whoopi Goldberg, and B.o.B all in my first semester here with Laura Bush coming up soon and all of them for free.

    Butler is expensive. As a pharmacy major I pay close to $40,000 a year. But this includes a membership to our fabulous workout center and your living expenses if you are living on campus. There are some cheaper options but I would say Butler is worth it.

    Butler is pricy, but you definitely get your money worth. There are career mentors and internship coordinators assigned specifically to each business student, as well as an advisor for EVERY student! The professors are more than helpful, and the placement rates are high for graduating students!

    If you are a business major, then Butler is where you need to be. First 98% job placement rate. You live in the number one city for internships and jobs. You're freshman year, you get to build a business plan and have a chance at presenting it to a panel of real world business people. You're sophomore year, you actually get to run a business that you and a team create. Any of the profits that you make off of it, you get to keep! I made $500 off of this class.
