Butler University Open House

Choosing a college is about finding the right fit. You might be thinking, what does that really mean? Finding the perfect college or university is all about choosing the right academic program, the right location, the right size, the right community, and the right vibe. And, the only one who can decide if a college is right for you is YOU.

Welcome Week is Just 5 Days Away

With classes beginning in just one week, incoming students are excited to move in and start their career at Butler University. Orientation is mandatory for all new students (this includes transfers) attending Butler University. It is designed to provide essential information about academic programs and requirements, student organizations and activities, and the wide range of campus resources, both academic and non-academic, available to our students. Most of all, orientation is intended to help new students connect with the campus community and to be well prepared for success.

Students can begin moving in on Saturday, August 20. Activities will be offered throughout the week to get students oriented with campus, classes, other bulldogs and more. Since there is simply too much going on to post on this blog, check out the orientation website for a complete Welcome Week schedule.

We can’t wait to see you on campus!

5 Things to Do Before Welcome Week

With Welcome Week just around the corner, there are a few things you might want to consider before arriving on campus. All of these important tasks can be completed through your my.butler.edu account.

Still not sure how to use my.butler.edu? Get all the answers on our website at www.butler.edu/it.

Your checklist:

1. The “Academic Tools” section of my.butler.edu allows you to access Blackboard and library documents directly from the site. Blackboard is a site that houses all of the information you need for each class including notes, PowerPoint presentations, grades, assignments, discussion boards and so much more. You might want to familiarize yourself with Blackboard before arriving to your first class so that you can be fully prepared.

Access Blackboard from your my.butler.edu account.

2. The “Campus Services” portion of my.butler.edu houses the Butler Connection and the Butler Collegian for students. The Butler Connection gives updates about what is happening around campus on a daily basis. The Collegian is our award-winning student newspaper which provides the Butler community with coverage of newsworthy events.
