High School Student Visits

Join us in person or stop by virtually—either way, we can’t wait to see you.

On-Campus Visits

Our visits for high school students are designed to provide a broad overview of Butler University. Learn about our academic programs, get info about financial aid and the admission process, and explore our beautiful 300+ acre campus.

Info Session with Campus Tour

Weekdays at 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM ET

The Info Session with Campus Tour is our standard daily campus visit program. Join one of our admission counselors for a 30-minute information session about Butler and the application process, then take a 60-90 minute campus tour with a current student.

Pack a good pair of shoes: Between our 300-acre campus and everything to see in Indianapolis, you’re going to need them!

Recommended for high school students of all ages.
