Why did you transfer to Butler University?
I decided to transfer to Butler because of the small student-to-faculty ratio and the ability to explore different academic interests with ease. I also loved the campus location and the dedication Butler has to volunteering around Indianapolis and beyond.
How did you initially hear about Butler and what interested you in the University?
I was looking for a smaller school that had similar ideals to my own such as a dedication to service and academics. I also really liked the high ranking business school, as well as the study abroad program. The emphasis that Butler places on the arts (such as through the Butler Cultural Requirements) shows me that they are interested in giving students a well-rounded education that is not just limited to their field of study.
What is your favorite part about Butler?
I really enjoy the dedication that the professors and advisors have to the students. I feel they really try to get to know me as an individual, not just as a student, and work to help me achieve the best experience possible at Butler.
When did you first visit Butler?
I first visited in Spring 2020 with an informal walk around campus before committing fully to the university. The location—set in the suburbs, close to a college town, but also near the larger city of Indianapolis—was perfect for me.
