    Butler is a very small school, and so class sizes are pretty small. Take advantage of that and speak with your professors outside of class hours. If you are usually decent at coming to class on time and participating and you have a problem, your professor will understand and will probably be a little more lenient. Also, NETWORK. The connections you make and sustain here will be some of the best things you will ever have in your life. Also, work hard, but enjoy your time at Butler. It truly is a familial community, and you will leave with lifelong family and skills.

    If you come, not playing a sport, join a fraternity or sorority. It is your only chance at having much of a social life. There are many different types of houses for any personality. Although Danko (the new president) is attempting to shut down Greek life.

    If you know what you want to major in, I would suggest taking AP classes in other areas. Since Butler is a Liberal Arts college, they are looking to make well-rounded students. That means that there are courses you have to take that aren't related to your major. Also, keep an open mind. I was looking at larger schools like IU, and I thought Butler would be too small. It's really a perfect size. I see new faces everyday, but I run into my friends a lot on campus as well. The atmosphere is very friendly!
