Exploratory Studies

Personalized Academic Advising

The academic advising here at Butler is so helpful. I came to college with absolutely no idea what I wanted to major in. The Exploratory program really helped me out and my advisor was a life saver. Although I am still undecided, the academic advising that I have received has had a wonderful impact on me. My advisor has helped me choose classes that have helped me get closer to declaring a major. If you ever have questions or you are ready to declare a major, it is comforting to know that your academic advisor will be there for you.
