Recommended for:

  • High school sophomores and juniors

Discover Butler, offered multiple times throughout the spring and summer, is a terrific way to get to know what life is like as a Bulldog. This fast-paced event includes an academic and student life fair, a campus tour, a current student panel, and admission interest sessions to choose from.

Open House includes an academic and student life fair, college-specific breakout sessions, an optional campus tour, and information sessions about admission, financial aid, and student life. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to connect with current students, faculty, and staff, and you'll leave with all of your questions about our application process answered.

College Information Sessions

Recommended for all high school students
Offered during fall semester only

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.

Registration for these visits has ended and will re-open fall 2020.
