Most Helpful Review for Butler University

For the most part, all of the classes are small enough that the professor knows your name and is able to pay more attention to the needs of the students. Because of this, it is much easier to learn more and to understand the topic without having to rush through anything. As long as you stay focused, I feel that the overall workload will never reach critical mass.

    I think the best quality of Butler University is its community. People genuinely care about each other and want to see each other succeed. This goes for both the academic and social communities.

    Absolutely beautiful campus. Their theatre program to me seems unbeatable. I would recommend it to anyone researching theatre as a major.

    The amount of diversity might be small, but we have a powerful and encouraging duo consisting of two incredibly kind and intelligent women who develop and implement eye-opening programs in order to promote diversity. We also have dedicated and active student-ran organizations which educate other students on current issues and create plans to impacts those issues. Overall, Butler has a strong group of students who have a very strong potential to change the world in a better way through the guidance and support of an incredibly involved faculty and staff.

    Butler is a great academic school. The new administration within the past few years has been changing Butler for the worst. Social life on campus is dying out. I recommend coming if you only care about academics and don't want the rest of the college experience.

    The class sizes are small, meaning that classes are very personal and students get a lot of one-on-one attention from teachers. The university has a community of care unlike that of any other university I have visited, and the services available to students are phenomenal. Its location in downtown Indianapolis makes it easy to get out in to the community.

    Butler has a community that truly cares about each and every one of its students. The faculty really get involved in their student's academic journeys, and the opportunities that Butler has to offer are very accessible for any student looking to get involved. In terms of size, it's not too small, yet small enough to create a sense of unity and safety.

    Butler University is a small school with all of the benefits of a large school. The professors know me by name, the students truly care about each other, and the university makes it easy to feel at home. It is perfectly located close enough to downtown Indianapolis without being in the heart of the city.

    Butler has a way of making you feel at home. Though the private school is rather expensive at times, the unity and plethora of help that you receive is definitely worth it. After being here for over a semester, I can truly say that The Butler Way is a great way to live.

    Butler University is definitely the home away from home that anyone could ever want from a university. Butler allows students to be themselves, always recognize a familiar face, and make friends to last a lifetime. Butler University was and still is the best choice I could have made in a university!
