    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!

    Take advantage of the early orientation programs such as Ambassadors of Change. They are truly a great way to get to know other students before the school year even starts. Also, do not be scared off by the cost of tuition - Butler offers many scholarships that are need-based, merit-based, and departmental.

    There are three things that prospective students should do before applying or attending Butler University: First, get involved as much as possible at your high school and in your community. Butler values volunteerism and even has a community requirement. Second, be prepared to work hard and commit. Classes aren't always easy and professors expect a lot out of you. It is good to know how to manage your time effectively and still have fun. Third, and last, try to save as much money up as possible. Even with scholarships Butler can be expensive. Don't get me wrong, it is totally worth it, but if you don't want massive student loans I suggest you save as much as possible when you can.

    Bring a car to school with you because you will end up wanting one. Join Greek life because it is so fun and lets you become an active member on campus. Look for cheaper text books online but go to the book store and buy some spirit wear. Make sure you have a good pair of rain boots and snow boots because you will need them.

    Just get involved, but not with too many clubs or activities. It is a great way to meet even more people and really create an image for yourself on campus! I would also advise students to make sure and not be afraid to ask questions! Butler is a small campus with so many teachers and staff willing to help with whatever you need!
