In its 2014 “Best Colleges” edition, U.S. News highlighted Butler as one of the nation’s finest in five categories: the first-year student experience, internships, study abroad, service learning, and undergraduate research/creative projects.
Butler was one of only two universities in the United States recognized in five or more categories, and was recognized in more categories than all other Indiana schools combined.
This is Butler's bulldog, Blue III (but he usually just goes by "Trip"). He's the third in the line of the university's official mascots.
Trip is always on the go, here on campus and even nationwide. Join his 11k+ followers on Twitter (@ButlerBlueII) and tag along.
The Butler University Board of Trustees has approved the development of two new facilities—a state-of-the-art student-housing facility with approximately 600 modern, suite-style beds and a 1,038-space multi-use parking facility.
Construction of the student-housing facility is expected to begin in spring 2015 with completion in fall 2016.
Construction of the five-story parking structure, which is anticipated to open in August 2015, will begin this fall.
96% of the 2013 graduating class were employed, attending graduate school, or participating in a gap-year experience within just six months after graduation.
Nearly all Butler students participate in some form of internship, student teaching, clinical rotation, undergraduate research, or service learning before they graduate.
