Butler University is excited to welcome an exceptional group of first-year students this coming fall. Read on to get to know Tom Sullivan, one member of the Class of 2024.   

What were you involved with during high school?

In high school, I was involved in Key Club, Student Assembly, National Honor Society, and I played hockey and lacrosse. I was a captain on my hockey team, and I absolutely loved the relationships that I built over all four years. We actually won the 2A state championship in 2018, and it was one of my favorite days of high school.

How did you initially hear about Butler?

I heard about Butler when I was in middle school, but what interested me in Butler was when one of my neighbors decided to go there because of all the good things she had said. A few of my friends’ parents also attended Butler, and they all had wonderful things to say, as well. After hearing so many good things, I thought, ‘why not visit?’

What is your favorite part about Butler?

I love the small school aspect the most because I feel like I can get to know both my professors and my fellow classmates. I also love its location in Indianapolis and all the opportunities that it brings.

Why did you choose Butler?

I chose Butler because of the internship opportunities in the Lacy School of Business, and just the overall feel of the school.

What do you hope to major or minor in?

I hope to major in Finance.

What are you most excited about?

I am very excited to start classes, begin learning, and to just be on campus.
