Beyond the Classroom
There are so many ways you can get involved on
campus. Butler has over 150 student organizations, a
strong Greek system, around 30 intramural and club sports to choose
from, volunteer opportunities on and off-campus, to name a few. You
will not have a problem filling your time; however, you might have
a problem finding enough time to do all the activities you want to
You do not have to be a superstar athlete to be on an
athletic team at Butler. Whether you only want to play tennis
for fun or be a little competitive on the soccer field, Butler has
several club and intramural sports to choose from.
Greek life is very popular on Butler's campus, and is a
good way to meet people with similar interests.
Greek life is a social organization that fosters friendship,
community service and leadership. A Fraternity is
the male Greek organization and a Sorority is the female
counterpart. Most fraternities and sororities have houses on
campus that the members are able to live in; however some
fraternities do not have houses and are more like clubs. You are
usually required to fulfill service hours and participate in events
hosted by the fraternity or sorority, so be prepared to dedicate
some time to the organization.
The volunteer center will help you find volunteer opportunities
on campus and in the Indianapolis community. The center is
affiliated with the PuLSE office and is student run.
The center is in charge of coordinating Fall Alternative Break
(FAB) and Spring Alternative Break (SAB), two volunteer
opportunities during your fall and Spring break where you travel
outside of Indianapolis and help a community in need.
You can also get involved in Books for Peace, College Mentors
for Kids!, Juntos and many more volunteer opportunities throughout
For more information, visit the Volunteer Center (Atherton

campus including (but not limited to):

- Campus Crusade

Vocation located on Sunset Avenue, for religious
communities in Indianapolis.
