Scheduling a Visit
Don't just browse Butler, experience it. Our beautiful campus. Our friendly students. Our wonderful facilities. Why? Because once you're here, we bet you'll feel right at home. We give you several ways to try us on. Choose whichever way is most comfortable for you. We have various visits and events for students who are exploring Butler but have not yet applied. You can also check out our Butler on the Road page to see which high schools and college fairs we will be visiting.
Admitted Student Visits
(January 22 - April 25, 2014)
Butler University will host daily visits for admitted students who would like to check out campus one more time, or even for the first time. The visit will include an admission presentation focusing on what happens now that you've been admitted, a class, observation, a campus tour, and lunch in the dining facilities for you and your parents.
Prospective Student Visits
(Daily visits scheduled all year long)
Explore Butler offers small group information sessions followed by student-led tours. These visits typically last around 2 ½ hours. Explore Butler visits are available throughout the year Monday through Friday multiple times daily. Selected Saturday morning visits are available in the fall and the spring semesters.
Pre-Pharmacy and Pre-Physician Assistant Explore Butler Events:
We also offer special options for students interested in Pre-Pharmacy and Pre-Physician Assistant. This specialty visit is available at 11 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday or Thursday at 1 p.m. for Pharmacy. The Physician Assistant presentation is at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
We recommend you register at least two weeks prior to your visit. All visiting high school students should schedule their visits individually. The presentation room limits registered students to two guests each.
Please be aware that Butler students are on holiday during the following times throughout the year:
- December 23, 2013 - January 12, 2014 (Winter break)
- January 20, 2014 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day)
- March 10 - 14, 2014 (Spring break)
Although Explore Butler visits may still be offered, campus will be quieter than usual during these periods.
Open House is a great way to see if Butler University is right for you. Register for Open House to learn about the wide variety of resources afforded to Butler students. During your visit, you will have the opportunity to attend academic, student life, admission and financial aid information sessions, tour campus, and meet with students and professors in the college of your choice.
This year's Open House dates have passed; Fall 2014 Open House dates TBA.
