Explore Butler

Offered each weekday at 10:30 AM and 2:30 PM, and select Saturdays at 10:30 AM

Explore Butler is our standard, daily campus visit program and includes a 30-minute information session followed by a 90-minute student-led tour of campus. You will get a general overview of the student experience and learn more about all of our academic colleges in addition to student life.

You can expect this visit to last around 2 hours. We recommend you register at least two weeks prior to your visit to ensure there is available space, and all visiting students should submit a separate registration. 

Register here.

College Information Sessions

Already have an idea of what you want to study in college? If so, then these visits are for you! These weekly visits will provide you a more thorough and detailed overview of specific academic colleges and programs. Different from our more general Explore Butler visit program, these will give you the opportunity to hear directly from a faculty or staff member within your area(s) of interest. Importantly, each of these visits will still include an abbreviated version of our general admission presentation and student led tour of campus, so you do not need to register for an Explore Butler in addition to one of these visits

Each of these visits will last around 3 hours and begin with a 15-minute general Butler information session led by one of our admission staff members, followed by a 30-minute session with a representative from the academic college or program. Your day will conclude with a 90-minute student-led tour of campus, including a more in-depth look at the facilities within your college of interest.

Due to the popularity of these visits, we encourage you to register at least two weeks prior to your visit date to ensure there is available space, and all visiting students should submit a separate registration.
