Why Choose Ball State?

Ball State is one of the top universities in the Midwest. Our national rankings and recognitions place us prominently on the national stage, but our more than 600 international students help put Ball State on the world map. Our university offers students the educational programs, opportunities, and facilities of a large institution but has the intimate feel of a small college, which is exactly why so many international students feel at home on our campus.


More than 600 international students from more than 60 countries are enrolled at Ball State each year. In addition to helpful Midwestern hospitality, you’ll be welcomed with open arms by Ball State students who come from all over the United States and in the classroom by some of the top scholars in the Midwest.


The diversity on campus is representative of the diversity you’ll find in our course catalog. Ball State offers a wide variety of programs through its approximately 180 undergraduate majors and more than 100 graduate programs. Many programs are nationally recognized, such as architecture, entrepreneurship, and education.


We have everything you need to have a successful university and international experience—the traditional American university campus with top-notch facilities and technology, comfortable residence halls, convenient dining facilities, extensive library collections, and a lively community of students.


When it’s all said and done, you’ll leave Ball State with much more than a diploma. You’ll walk away with experience and the confidence to take on the world as you join the ranks of Ball State’s 150,000+ distinguished alumni.
