Butler University is a liberal arts school with a history of doing things differently. In 1855, attorney and abolitionist Ovid Butler opened a school founded on the principle that everyone deserves an excellent education, regardless of race or gender– a bold idea in pre-Civil-War America. He believed that experience is the best teacher, that a love of learning prepares you for success no matter what you do, and that anyone can achieve greatness if they’re willing to put in the effort. Butler University now offers well over 60 major academic fields of study in six colleges and was recently ranked 2nd for Midwest Regional Universities in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 Best Colleges.
