True Blue

Find out what it’s really like to be a Butler student. Admitted students are encouraged to visit campus this spring and ‘shadow’ a current Butler University student through a typical day. The True Blue program takes place Monday through Thursday starting January 30 and ending April 12 (excluding March 12 — 15). It is a great opportunity to learn more about the academic and extra-curricular opportunities that exist for you as a prospective member of the Class of 2016. You will attend classes with your host, meet faculty, staff, and other current students, and have lunch in our award-winning dining hall. Our focus is about providing you an inside look into your major and life as a student at Butler University. By shadowing Butler students, you can gain better insight into the expectations of college, which in turn will help you to be better prepared for college life.

We encourage you to register for True Blue before spots fill up. Register now.

Don’t Let Senioritis Get the Best of You

Senioritis, noun: A crippling disease that strikes high school seniors. Symptoms include: laziness, an over-excessive wearing of track pants, old athletic shirts and sweatshirts. Also features a lack of studying, repeated absences and a generally dismissive attitude. The only known cure is a phenomenon known as Graduation.

Senioritis is common among many high school seniors. You’ve worked hard for three years, are now waiting for acceptance letters from the universities you applied to and want to blow off some steam (finally). Although you may want to take a much needed mental break. Don’t!

Senior year is your opportunity to strengthen your skills while broadening your horizons. Rather than taking a lighter load, we suggest you enroll in AP courses or other classes that challenge you. A few other tips we suggest for combating senioritis include keeping a calendar of your activities and important deadlines. We also suggest you stay involved in extracurriculars, volunteer work and sports that help you stay focused. Plus, these activities look great on your college application! Just remember to not let senioritis rule you because Butler University does take both first and second semester grades into consideration (the same goes for quarters or trimesters after the date in which you applied).
