Staff Assembly Votes to Support IndyGo Resolution

During the Staff Assembly general meeting on February 18, those in attendance voted in support of a resolution that would change a current IndyGo bus route to include a stop on the Butler campus. IndyGo will announce changes to current bus routes in the near future. We will share this information as it becomes available.

A Powerful Butler Experience

Check out the lessons this sales rep learned on a visit to BU with his son. Way to go, Dawgs!


RecycleMania is nationwide competition between schools in which they compete through recycling starting January 18–March 28.

There are 9 weeks of planned events around certain themes. The hope is for students, faculty, and staff to join in on the events, and ultimately, for Butler to be ranked highly among other Indiana schools. Here is a link to see the rankings between schools, so let’s do all that we can to see Butler make the list by recycling as much as possible on campus. You can even bring your recyclables from home to help increase our chances.

Please be sure to document your experiences with this campaign through the hashtag #DawgsGoGreen.
