http://www.gobeyondthebroch...... - Your life at Butler University will be easier if you learn to avoid some of the common problems. You can stay away from the worst place to study in the library and skip the scary fines for parking in the wrong lot by paying attention. Butler University can provide you with a great college experience, but it has not escaped the issues commonly seen at other schools. Despite the police presence on the campus, safety is a concern for students at the university. The Butler Tarkington neighborhood includes the university and residential areas near the school.
