A Great Day at Butler Bound

The COE has been excited for several weeks to meet admitted students and their families at the Butler Bound event which was held on Friday, February 22nd.  Despite ice and snow throughout the surrounding area, we had just shy of 100% attendance and met so many amazing students and families on Friday!

The day started at Clowes Hall in the Krannert Room and included at visit to the Butler Lab School and an option to attend the Butler vs. Saint Louis mens basketball game that evening.  Current students, faculty, staff and alumni were all involved in the day and spoke about the COE and the great experiences and education available here.  Our students and alumni did a great job of expressing how the COE feels like “home” and supports students in all their interests and preparation.
