    Every time I have visited Butler, I feel at home. It's not too big, not too small, and the teacher to student ratio fits my needs. Though the two main residence halls--Ross Hall (co-ed) and Schwitzer Hall (all women)--aren't air conditioned, they are a relatively good size. And, the closets are spacious.

    The campus at Butler is the best campus I have ever seen by far! It is extremely beautiful and welcoming. It feels like I belong there, and I know many other students who think so too. The people are very nice and helpful also. It is definitely fun to be a Butler bulldog!
