Alumni & Parent Programs

Butler University Young Alumni

Young Happy Hour Young alumni programming aims to assist recent graduates in central Indiana in maintaining strong connections with their alma mater. Young alumni are defined as alumni who have graduated within the last 10 years.

The Young Alumni Board of central Indiana provides an opportunity for young alumni to socialize with their fellow graduates, network for career opportunities and serve both the community and Butler. The board consists of 24 recent alumni who have volunteered to serve three-year terms, meet four times year as a group and plan activities for Butler's largest concentration of young alumni. Learn more about becoming involved on the board.

Apply to Serve on the Board

The application process for 2014 has closed. We will again be accepting applications in winter 2015. Visit our Board information page to learn more about member expectations and the application process.

Ovid Butler Society

Graduates of the last decade are the cornerstone of Butler's future. The Ovid Butler Society counts on members who have recently graduated and members who will soon graduate from Butler, and realizes that giving at the regular $1,000 Ovid Butler Society level is not always feasible for people at this stage in their lives. For that reason, recent graduates can receive full membership in the Ovid Butler Society at an adjusted giving amount, depending upon graduation year. Your support can be directed to any area of campus, including the Young Alumni Book Scholarship Fund.

For more information regarding the Ovid Butler Society for Recent Graduates, contact the Office of Annual Giving at (800) 368-6852, ext. 9469.
