Name: Cael Reed
Hometown: Bloomington, Illinois
Intended Major: Statistics
Butler University is excited to welcome an exceptional group of first-year students this coming fall. Read on to get to know Cael Reed, one member of the Class of 2025.
What were you involved with in high school?
In high school, I was a member of the varsity baseball team and was also involved with National Honors Society (NHS). Near the end of my junior year, I was voted in as the secretary of NHS where I helped plan and host monthly meetings.
How did you first hear about Butler and what interested you in the University?
I first heard about Butler the summer before my senior year. I had a baseball tournament in Indianapolis, and one of our games was played on campus. After the game, my mom and I took a walk around campus, which really put Butler on my radar. I really liked the feel of campus and was impressed by all of the buildings and facilities.
Why did you choose Butler?
Butler’s size is perfect. You get a big college feel, paired with a smaller student body, so it seems like you can really get to know your professors. I also just had a good feeling being on campus. When I visited other schools, I never really felt like it was the right fit, but whenever I visited Butler, I always felt that it was a place where I could live and really call home.
What are you most looking forward to about Butler?
I am most excited to just step foot on campus and meet all types of new people. Forming new relationships and friendships with my fellow students and professors is something that I am really looking forward to. I also hope to get involved in club or intramural sports, and maybe get involved with statistics for one of the varsity athletic programs.
