First Year Experience


Our Purpose

To provide opportunities for Butler Community College student to meet peers on a social level, connect with student leaders, faculty and staff in an environment outside the traditional college setting, and develop a sense of campus community; making possible a more successful transition from high school to college.

GrizzFest is designed to aid in the social engagement process and ease the transition from high school to Butler Community College. It is intended for students to establish friendships, meet student leaders, become familiar with Butler rules and regulations, and learn about Butler campus life in a fun and relaxed environment.


This experience should provide them with valuable information about coping with college and learning the ropes as a Grizzly. Who knows - they may just meet their new best friend!



Grizzfest takes place from Saturday, August 20th through Wednesday, August 31th. For a complete list of scheduled activities click GRIZZFEST SCHEDULE
