Who Studies at Ball State?

Who studies at Ball State? About 22,000 intelligent, dynamic, and curious students, that’s who. Our students come from every county in Indiana, almost every state in the U.S., and about 56 countries. Currently, out-of-state students make up about 13 percent of our on-campus enrollment, ethnic minorities make up about 11 percent, and we have more than 620 international students.



However, one thing all of our students have in common is that they’re curious, focused, and socially responsible. Whether it’s finding creative ways to learn in the classroom, coming up with a way to win the annual Bed Race, masterminding a documentary, or figuring out ways to contribute in the local community, they’re innovative and motivated to succeed.
