When picking a university to attend it can almost seem like you are Goldilocks and the Three Bears. There are a lot of things you have to try and see what is the best fit for you. Once you find the best fit you realize it is just right.
I know there are many of you who are probably still doing exactly what Goldilocks did and trying to figure out what is the best fit for you. A question I hear a lot while giving tours is if Butler is too small? Do I see the same people all the time? The simple answer is no. Let me give you the more in depth answer.
Coming from a large high school, over 3200 students, I felt that Butler would be too small for me. I love meeting new people and getting to know others, so I thought that this would be like high school all over again. Even though I felt this way I just ignored it and still chose Butler. I have never regretted that decision. Yes, Butler is small, but it is just right. I can walk to class and know people on the way there, but I can also walk into a classroom and not know people. To say at Butler everyone knows everyone is extreme. Most of the students do know a lot of people, but it is because most of us are involved in a lot of different activities.
For the most part you could say Butler is how you make it. At Butler I am meeting someone new everyday. There are some of us who do know a lot of people and we would love to know even more people on campus. There are also those who have chose to stick with their core group of friends and are not involved with much, but still have a great time. The point is you can make Butler however you want. Butler doesn’t change you, but rather makes you a better version of yourself.
I hope that you can call Butler home just as so many of us have.
