One option available to incoming Honors freshmen is the Honors dorm: Butler Hall. This dorm houses ~256 students on 7 residential floors. The main lounge is the site of most of our round table discussions and includes a new (soon to be delivered!) pool table and ping pong table. The dorm has recently been pressured washed on the outside and the interior is gradually being all repainted. Other renovations are scheduled as well.
Why an Honors dorm? Butler forms a fairly unique community of diverse yet like-minded students; like-minded in that they all recognize the importance of learning. This does not distract from their creativity and fun. At least, that has been my experience in the last two years. There are set quiet hours and perhaps a greater sense of respect for each other in Butler.
Butler may not be for everyone, in fact it cannot be. We admit far more H students than Butler can house. This brings me to the most important point for prospective students: If you want to live in Butler you must request it and it is on a "first come, first serve basis."
All that being said, for current and past Butler-ites: Please tell me (and others who might read this), what were the best and worst things about Butler? If you could improve two things, what would they be?
