Butler University is excited to welcome a group of bright first-year students this coming fall. Learn more about Victory Sampson and why he chose Butler.

What were you involved with during high school? Please provide a few details about your involvement.
That’s a loaded question! I have participated in 14 extracurriculars throughout my time at Cathedral High School including Speech and Debate, Black Student Union, Gospel Choir, and The Center for Leadership Development.

How did you first hear about Butler and what interested you in the University?
I first heard about Butler in 8th grade, and I began to get in contact with admission counselors my freshman year of high school. So, I can’t quite remember exactly who recommended the school to me—it was probably a family member or a middle school admin.

What is your favorite part about Butler?
My favorite parts of Butler are the Efroymson Diversity Center and the Hub for Black Affairs. The people who inhabit these offices made me feel extremely welcome during my first senior visit to Butler.

Why did you ultimately decide to choose Butler?
I chose Butler for two reasons. One, because it was close to home. I am a first-generation Nigerian and we hold proximity to family in high regard. Secondly, I chose Butler because of the financial aid package I received as a Butler Full Tuition Guarantee Scholar.

What do you hope to get involved with or be a part of at Butler?
I hope to be involved in student affinity groups such as the Black Student Union and the Hub of Black Affairs, but I am also hoping to become a Resident Assistant.

What are you most excited about?
I’m most excited to continue to build my media and production business and make new friends at Butler.

If there’s anything else you’d like us to know about you, please list it here.
