I decided to make a post today discussing some of the reasons why I decided to come to Butler. I originally heard of Butler because of its successful basketball program and did a little research on it and ended up deciding to come! I’ve always gone to small private schools my whole life so seeing that Butler only had a couple thousand students was really appealing to me. Another good thing about Butler for me was that it’s still in a big city so there’s always stuff to do and always plenty of opportunities to get involved or find employment.
Overall, coming to Butler has probably been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made not only because of all the awesome people I’ve met, but also because of the knowledge I’ve gained and opportunities I’ve been part of that I would have never had if I had gone to another school.
I think the most important thing about colleges like Butler that gets lost in the fray of information is all the academic opportunities. Besides all the majors in all six colleges, there are also resources that can help you in your classes.
The Writer’s Studio is open to all students to help with any writing assignment that a student might have. Whether you need help with coming up with ideas or want someone to look over work you have done, there are students in the writer’s studio that can help.But if someone has a speaking assignment such as a PowerPoint presentation or a speech, there is also the Speakers Lab that students can go to for help with how to get started or for ideas on how to improve a completed presentation.
I love that both of these are available since writing or giving presentations might not be strongpoints for many students.
Here’s a video for more information on academic resources for students:
