Convocation 2021

Sunday, August 22, Butler celebrated its incoming class during a Convocation ceremony at Clowes Memorial Hall. Speeches from University leaders welcomed the Class of 2025, and President James Danko reminded first-year students of the importance of looking out for one another. If someone in our community is being unsafe, struggling with depression, or being disrespectful to another person, please intervene. We are all in this together.
