“The Time is Now”, Ball State University’s 14th Biennial Black Alumni Reunion is July 31 – August 2, 2015 at the Alumni Center.  Plan now to attend this special event!  Festivities begin Friday evening, July 31, and conclude at noon Sunday, August 2.  Highlights include Friday’s reception from 7-11 p.m. at the Alumni Center with light hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and the Greek Stroll-Off. 

Enjoy sharing your Ball State story Saturday morning as we videotape “Our Ball State Experience.”  Allen Williams, ’73, will moderate the session.  

Bid on new items throughout Saturday’s silent auction.  Winners may pay by cash, check, Visa, or MasterCard Saturday night to receive their items.  Proceeds will benefit the Black Alumni Constituent Society (BACS) programs and recognitions through the Ball State University Foundation account #408. 

Relax with a delicious buffet luncheon at noon Saturday.  Then, take a guided bus tour with Charles Greenwood, ’56 MA’61, and learn about Ball State’s beautiful campus from 2-3 p.m., enjoy free time, or if applicable, meet with your Greek brothers and sisters from 2-4 p.m. at the Alumni Center. 

A cash bar reception takes place from 5:30-6:30 p.m. with a reunion group picture at 6 p.m.  A delicious dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m., followed by alumni award presentations.  Dance to music from a variety of decades presented by a DJ until midnight.
