Butler University Young Alumni
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.

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
For more information regarding the Ovid Butler Society for Recent
Graduates, contact the Office of Annual Giving at (800)
