True Blue: Dawg Life

If you’re still wondering if Butler is the right fit (or maybe you want confirmation that it is!), we invite you to immerse yourself as a student and attend True Blue: Dawg Life.

Whether you want to see Butler’s campus just one more time—or for the very first time—this on-campus event will showcase student organizations, academics, residence halls, and more. You’ll enjoy lunch on us in the dining hall, meet other admitted students, and hear from current Bulldogs in a student-only panel. Parents and families will also benefit from special programming hosted by campus leaders.

These Zoom information sessions offer a live delivery of the same information families receive in our on-campus Admitted Student Visit: a “what’s next?” admission and financial aid presentation, housing and course registration information, and an overview of academic and student life on campus.

We’ll leave plenty of time for questions, too.

Admission Counselor Appointments (Virtual)


It’s crunch time! As you reach your final college decision, you probably have questions. Your admission counselor is here for them (and you).

Schedule a time to connect with your assigned admission counselor on Zoom. Parents are welcome, too.
