Get the Drift?

Curious about what your classmates have been doing since graduation? Participate in your Class Reunion Drift. Take the online Drift survey to submit your favorite memories and updates on your life after Butler.

Support Butler in Honor of Your Class Reunion

Celebrate the anniversary of your graduation by supporting Butler students. Gifts to the University continue your legacy at Butler while helping today's students create legacies of their own. The Class of 1963 is honoring this celebratory year by supporting the Reunion Class Scholarship Fund. This scholarship is awarded to Butler students who demonstrate financial need. It was established in order to give reunion classes a chance to band together and positively impact the lives of current students. Please consider supporting student scholarships as a way to commemorate your own Butler graduation. Visit www.butler.edu/gifts to make a gift today. If you need assistance, have questions, or would like more information, please contact Chelsea Brightman at (800) 368-6852, ext. 9028, or cbright1@butler.edu.
