    Sorry if this is off topic, but I'm not positive if it is or not. Anyone know anything about the "major announcement" we got an email about today? If you didn't get the email, it essentially said we're invited campus to "celebrate a historic moment for Butler University" on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 11:00 AM at the Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts.

    Ha! My first guess was Scotty's, too. Beats taking the drunk bus (if it still exists).

    I would hope we don't need president Danko to talk about a bar opening... It will be bigger than that I am sure.

    Thinkinv a little more about it now, given the timing and the fact that Indiana's primary might actually matter for the first time, I wonder if they're announcing that a primary debate will be held at the school.

    Not having a formal announcement for the "historic event" of opening a bar that had already been announced.

    Hmmm this is a good thought. I could see this.

    I wondered too. The email was certainly a good teaser anyway!

    I suspect it's regarding a significant eight figure donation to launch the fund raising effort for the construction of a new College of Business building.

    Seems like it'd be hard to keep a presidential debate undisclosed until just a few days before it happens. An event like that is obviously a lot bigger than BU.

    I'm gonna stick with it being the opening of a new school, maybe received a big donation to do so. Maybe engineering? Physical therapy? Either way, should be exciting.

    Sadly, of course, my first thought was I hope someone is throwing some money down for a basketball facility of some kind. Haha.

    Person I trust says he's heard we got a monster donation and are building a new business school facility but he doesn't know if the announcement is related to that.

    I was completely joking about Scotty's. Our company bid on the survey work for the new school. While pretty cool, not a groundbreaking thing. Debate site makes sense. Would be awesome if it were in Hinkle (and hot). Would love nothing more than to see Trump sweat his ass off, and not just because Megyn Kelly is grilling him.

    I may move up to Canada with Howard Washington if he is the republican candidate.

    I agree with DawgsforLife. I think its something with there Butler 2020 plan and announcing their new business building or a long the lines with that but I could see the a presidential debate as well.... good thoughts!

    I heard this from multiple students but there is no way. With our football program not up to par and just moving to the Big East. I think we found a stable conference and the Big Ten already has enough teams.

    I imagine it's something related to academics. New college, new building, etc.
