A few of our current Butler families share a message with new families and parents.
Check out the FERPA Information page to learn about the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and how it impacts you and your student.
In the event of a campus emergency, weather-related delay or closing, Butler University will activate the emergency notification tool, DawgAlert. This system gives Butler administrators the ability to reach students, faculty, staff, and affiliates on and off campus via text messages and voice and email alerts.
Students can register themselves and family members for Dawg Alert. Visit the DawgAlert page to learn how your student can enter your contact information to receive DawgAlerts.
Important information will be sent to your student’s Butler email address throughout the summer.
Help get your student into the habit of checking their Butler email and give them a gentle nudge from time to time.
We’re a social university, and now that you’re a part of the Bulldog family, we encourage you to connect!

Butler Blue IV “Blue”
Nothing quite says “I’m a Butler Bulldog” like your first Butler t-shirt, hat, bumper sticker, or coffee mug!
Do some shopping at the Butler Bookstore, so no one has to wonder where your student goes to school.
Are you planning to celebrate your bulldog with some sweet treats? Make it extra special by including the Butler University logo.
