Finals week is finally over. I was officially done at 415 pm on Wednesday. I’m finally done with my first semester. It’s weird to think that just a while ago I was packing up and moving into Butler.
I keep seeing admissions tweet about the final decisions being sent out. So I thought instead of writing about how finals week went and how much time I spent studying, I would write about why all of you who got accepted should COME TO BUTLER! All of my reasons go back to one major point. Butler’s status of being a SMALL SCHOOL. I have three main reasons so hopefully this helps some people out in deciding!
Small School = Small class sizes = Personal Care
At Butler there is a little over 4000 students. Being able to go to a small school means having personal relationships with your professors and Butler staff. Class sizes are small at Butler because of this. You will know all of your professors on a personal basis. This is something you cannot get at big state schools because classes at times can have 100-300 plus people. My largest class at Butler is maybe 20? This means that I need to be fully prepared and skipping classes really isn’t an option.
Being at a small school means there are so many opportunities. Everyone at Butler is so closely connected that it is easy to find opportunities whether it be for jobs, internships, study abroad, or even just being connected in different groups on campus. I have yet to meet one person on campus that is not involved in anything. Butler makes it so easy to be involved in so many different activities. They don’t want you to just sit in your room! They want you to be active in the community and also on campus!
Everyone at Butler is friendly and fun. I think we are all happy to be bulldogs and we all love our fellow bulldogs. Whether you are going to a basketball game, partying with friends, or even just doing activities that Student Government Association (SGA), there is always something to do that is FUN. Butler’s awesome because if you don’t feel like going to parties it’s no problem! SGA has so many activities they plan such as movie nights, going cave diving, haunted house trips, and so much more. Because Butler is so small they really take the time to connect students and make sure everyone is being safe and having fun.
I know that picking a college is hard, but Butler is an awesome place if you want massive amounts of people that encourage you and are cheering you on.
