What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
Butler has a very welcoming environment. There are a wide varieties of majors and therefore diversity. I made the right choice in attending Butler.
Meredith from Lexington, KY
Butler was a last minute decision. I signed up for the last campus tours and absolutely feel in love with the environment. Although coming to Butler meant I was turning down a full ride scholarship to another university and having to actually pay tuition and books, I did not care because I could not imagine myself anywhere else.
