Butler's Campus and the City of Indianapolis
The city of Indianapolis
encircles Butler's beautiful 290-acre campus. This serene campus
area, which is hailed as one of the most attractive in the Midwest,
has a formal botanical garden and nature preserve that is
surrounded by an historic northside neighborhood, the White River
and Central Canal, and the
Central Canal Towpath, a 5.23 mile walk/run/bike path that
Ripple Village to Butler University, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Virginia B.
Fairbanks Art and Nature Trail and Riverside Regional Park.
Located six miles from the heart of the city, the campus, which
is home to 80 percent of the university's full-time students,
offers easy access to downtown. Its urban location allows the
Eugene S. Pulliam School of Journalism to offer students a wide
range of internship opportunities that are excellent preparation
for mass communication careers and graduate school.
