Just five miles south of the Butler campus is downtown Indianapolis, the nation’s 13th largest city. Affectionately know as “Indy,” Indianapolis is a great combination of big-city culture and Midwestern friendliness. Our students rave about an eclectic section of the city called Broad Ripple that’s just five minutes from campus. “The Ripple” features boutiques, cafés, galleries and bungalows set between beautiful greenways and waterways. At night it pulses with the beat of the most original music venues and destinations in the city. Basically, there is always something to do on or around this campus.
