Coordinated by Career and Professional Success, the Indy Summer Experience (ISE) is a program for students that gives you the chance to work and play in the great city of Indianapolis. ISE consists of current students who have the opportunity to:

  1. Secure and complete an internship (or similar professional experience) with a local organization during the day
  2. Take part in social and cultural events in the evenings

ISE allows Butler students to explore the diverse social and cultural offerings of Indy as well as connect and network with Butler alumni and local professionals through weekly summer programming.

Student Response

When asked about the biggest takeaways from an event, one participant said:

NETWORKING!! Also, stay in Indy! I liked talking to Katja because she was telling me about all of the incredible places she gets to travel for her job (LA, San Fran, etc). It made me reconsider my plans to move out-of-state after graduation (and I genuinely mean that).

Graduate Response

I’ve been able to reconnect with so many people…Thanks again for all your work with ISE—it definitely proved to be one of the most professionally impactful experiences I had at Butler.

Indy Summer Experience 2024 includes Financial Sponsorship from Elements Financial.
