My experience was fun and very sensational met a lot of smart beautiful people on the quad didn't have a visit just was an open visit to myself I the campus was so amazing and I instantly fell in love with it. Reason why is because it was my first and only college I ever wanted to see grew up around Bulldogs so might as well try to become one

I really enjoyed my overall experience with Butler. The dorms were nice, the food was delicious, and everyone there was very friendly. I would highly recommend this school for anyone looking for a small Indiana school.
