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!
Macy from North Vernon, IN
If you are looking for the family feel, Butler is definitely the place for you. However, if you are not very social, keep in mind that you must also make the effort to create new connections. Here making friends is very easy, but don't always expect others to approach you first.
Alyssa from Lafayette, IN
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.
Miranda from Maple Grove, MN
The best way to leave an impression on Butler University is to show that you are well rounded, have a solid academic history, and that you have activities outside of school.
Visit campus! When you step onto the right campus, you will know it. Also, talk to current students and get their feedback on how they enjoy Butler.
Karina from Carmel, IN
One thing that I learned to late is that prospective students need to focus a lot on volunteer work and giving back to the community. Leadership and community involvement are used heavily in choosing scholarship winners. Always keep your options open, and if you choose Butler make sure to participate in the early registration so that you can take the classes that you want to take the most.

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!
Lauryn from Elkhart, IN
Come to Indianapolis! I had never been to Indy before I went on my first tour of Butler. Talking to students, professors, and deans helped me decide that Butler was right for me.
Make sure that you don't come into college looking to just have fun and get away from your parents. You need to always put education first no matter which university you go to. Remember to know your limits for everything because one may come into college thinking about greek life and then go to parties and skip class, which is not good. You are spending a lot of money to go to this university, so you should make the best out of it.
Jacob from Indianapolis, IN
Visit campus! It's the best way to know if Butler is a good fit for you. Don't be afraid to ask questions on tours either, most people are happy to help!
