Butler College was established in the fall of 1983 and named in honor of businessman and former University trustee Lee D. Butler ’22. Paired with First College, Butler is one of three four-year colleges, which house freshman, sophomore, and upperclass students. The college provides room for approximately 550 residents, of which 150 are juniors or seniors. Most of the buildings comprising the Butler complex are relatively new, with many having been completed in 2009. The amphitheater (pictured) is a convenient gathering space and venue for events, and the college also houses an art gallery and innovation space for entrepreneurial students. Head of college is Elizabeth M. Armstrong, Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology, who maintains an office in Wu Hall along with the members of the college staff.
