University Professor Information

Todd Richardson

Professor in the Business department at Butler University, Indianapolis, IN

People in Organizations were one of the most practical courses I have taken (MBA and undergraduate). I appreciated his willingness to meet and discuss pertinent topics that applied to my real life work.

I am learning a ton in this class and am appreciative of his willingness to meet outside of class. His counsel is super helpful.

People in Organizations Course. I have been waiting for a professor like this that has real life experience dealing with the subject matter and is not just an academic. I wish there were more professors like him at Butler.

Although Prof. Richardson is new to teaching at Butler, I think he is among the best professors that I have had. Would definitely recommend taking this class.

This was THE best class I have had at Butler. As an MBA student, I found Professor Richardson's practical approach to be a huge bonus!

Craig Caldwell

Professor in the Business department at Butler University, Indianapolis, IN

Really nice guy. pretty laid back. some of the team papers are a lot of work. but he's willing to give extensions if the class wants one. study for the midterm a lot. and just hope for the best and win Top Dawg to get out of the final. not much homework either. and a few quizzes (4 total).

He is a very nice guy! Funny and very laid back. Usually allowed paper extensions and things if the whole class agreed to it. Hardly any test/quizzes. But the midterm and final was hard, but if you study all the book stuff, you're fine. Was also very helpful with the presentations.

Great guy. Very easy to talk to and make friends with just show him that you’re willing to try and a B or better will follow.

He is the MAN! Class was great and he is a very good professor. Highly recommend taking his class.

Stephen Schelonka

Professor in the Business Administration department at Butler University, Indianapolis, IN

He is very helpful and will take the time to explain things to you until you understand it. The class is not easy but If you try in the class you will be fine. I would recommend having him as a professor anytime.

You need to study for his class, do the readings and the homework. He is fair and willing to explain answers until you understand the concept. Great adjunct for accounting, he relates it to the real world and keeps class as interesting as one could for accounting.

Find a friend that is smart and able to learn on their own and take this class. Homework is completion, quizzes are online and can be taken twice, and exams are online. He talks about his family and job more than accounting but he's ALWAYS willing to stay after or help. Great dude, easy class. Take AC203 with him.

Students Talks About This University

Academics: There are tons of opportunities to get more involved by doing research with a professor or participating in the Butler Summer Institute. Although I thought that the intro course for biology was kind of pointless, I think the fundamental classes that you take afterwards will be very helpful in the future. Once you get those out of the way, it really opens up your schedule to take more of the specific, advanced courses. If you're interested in biology/sustainability, I would recommend checking out the Butler Center for Urban Ecology (CUE) and the campus farm because both allow you to meet awesome people, and you can have a part-time job or internship.

Academics: The amount of internships, research, and other opportunities that are offered to every different major here is amazing. Part of the reason why I chose Butler. So many different things they offer to experience.

Academics: Tons of support and teacher aid, as well as tutors offered and study sessions. It is very tough, but they make it easy to do well if you are willing to put in the effort.

Academics: There are many interesting classes to take, as well as many opportunities to express yourself! There is a summer program where you can choose your own topic to study in a lab and if selected you can receive money to fund your experiment!

Academics: The academics are great! We have some of the best professors. At least in my opinions I have professors who really care for me and are always there when I need them. There are also many accommodations for students with disabilities. We have both a math and English lab if you are struggling with math or even help on writing papers. A popular area is Irwin library which is beautiful, and has a lot of space and different floors! So if you want peace and complete silence the basement is where you want to go and the other floors are more lenient and you can talk. Also perfect for meeting with groups on the upper levels!

Campus Quality: The Health and Recreation Center is outstanding! The facilities are clean and very accessible to everyone! Great space to work out and relax!

Campus Quality: The social scene is amazing. We have a really strong Greek community and we are 10 minutes from a bar town that is an artsy village during the day with lots of shops and restaurants and we're 10 minutes from downtown, its perfect.

Campus Quality: It's an Ideal Balance – The culture at Butler is as a whole focused on academics. People who attend this school are generally motivated and goal-oriented. However, it's not to the point that no one wants to have fun. There's a lot to do on campus and a lot going on out in Indianapolis. Butler encourages students to push themselves academically, but being "liberal arts infused" greatly encourages students to spend time on recreational and social pursuits.

Campus Quality: The social scene is PRIMARILY revolved around Greek life, parties at the frat house. But there are also parties off campus and near-by bars. There are SO MANY different clubs to join and opportunities to volunteer. Also, studying abroad is HIGHLY recommended at Butler. There are so many resources for that opportunity.

Campus Quality: The gym for students at Butler University is fantastic. It has a pool, gaming area, suspended track, indoor basketball, studios, a sauna, and tons of equipment.

Diversity: Butler is very diverse. We have international students and students from every racial or ethnic background. I would say politically we are also very diverse and there are different clubs for different political parties. We have a religious center that welcomes someone from any religion to come and hang out or speak about their religion. We also have many classes that teach about different religions, their backgrounds, history, and beliefs. Butler is extremely accepting of any sexual orientation and hosts drag shows and LGBT club.

Diversity: Although, a lot of students at Butler come from well off families, there is also a lot of diversity. I enjoy meeting the foreign exchange students and visiting the diversity center.

Diversity: From a Small Town – Coming from a small town, I think the diversity is great! I love meeting new people with different cultural backgrounds, religious backgrounds, and political backgrounds. I used to live in a community that was all Caucasian and shared similar beliefs, so coming to Butler was such a change for me. However, people from much bigger high schools would say there is not as much diversity as what I see. They are used to a lot more. However, there is diversity present on campus, and most everyone is very accepting of the differences!

Diversity: Butler wants us to be Butler students! We are very diverse and everyone is united as one.

Diversity: Butler has a diversity center. Butler requires students to go to cultural events which make every type of culture feel welcome. It seems that most students are from wealthy families.

Guys & Girls: The people are one of my favorite things about Butler. It doesn't matter if you're an athlete, Greek, ect. Everyone is extremely outgoing and friendly.

Guys & Girls: Everyone is well dressed and well spoken. Each class is like a family and it's easy to make friends because everyone is so laid back and easy going.

Guys & Girls: Girls and guys at Butler range from one end of the spectrum to the other. You can find artsy music lovers to hardcore scholars. People dress in jeans and t-shirts and dresses and suits. There are random hook ups and married couples. Social lives range from watching movies to going partying at bars. Really Butler is so diverse that it would be hard not to find someone you could get along with.

Guys & Girls: One of my favorite things about Butler are the people. 95% of the people I see every day are extremely friendly. Also, we are a pretty small school so I see a lot of people I know most of the time. Close relationships are not hard to find.

Guys & Girls: Social Life – There is a great social life on the weekend. The frats through some great parties and the environment are always really friendly. There is definitely something for everyone here on the weekends.
