Our Success

We’re ranked. We’re recognized. But we’re not satisfied. Ball State consistently strives for the next challenge and the next achievement.

Our students and professors are making incredible contributions to the world through their immersive learning projects and their research. A graduate project in the natural resources and environmental management program is testing the quality of our local watershed to ensure its safety. Our College of Architecture and Planning sponsors pro-bono design and planning projects that benefit rural and urban communities across Indiana, the nation, and the world. And our Center for Media Design partners with government and academic institutions to create and test practical new applications of digital technology.

And our alumni are one success story after another. They include everyone from The Late Show’s David Letterman and Papa John’s founder John Schnatter to Garfield creator Jim Davis, Chicago Bears punter Brad Maynard, Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts, and more than 157,500 business leaders, educators, scientists, health care providers, artists, media and technology professionals, and others—all of whom are making their mark on the world in their own entrepreneurial way.
