Butler University is again among the roughly 300 schools listed in the Fiske Guide to Colleges, a reference book for prospective students looking for “the best and most interesting schools.”

In the 2017 edition, which was released on July 1, Butler is listed as strong in dance, international business, pharmacy, biology, marketing, chemistry, and early education.

“The university’s most popular programs are also among its best,” the book says.

Butler also is noted for its Honors Program (“designed to foster a diverse and challenging intellectual climate and features courses, events, independent study, and research opportunities”) and study abroad options.

“Butler University desires to provide students with a strong undergraduate liberal arts experience and access to professional programs of ‘local impact and global reach,’” the guide says, quoting a freshman as saying, “Butler cares about its students as individuals.”

Students “have taken note of the school’s revamped programs, improved facilities, and focus on personal attention,” the guide says, quoting a sophomore as saying, “Butler truly becomes a community for our students. The students and faculty all work to make Butler life an enjoyable experience for all.”
