When it comes to education, Ball State means business... and physics, and theatre, and 190 other majors and preprofessional programs. But no matter which program you choose, you’ll be immersed. Our creative, innovative, hands-on learning style means that no two experiences are the same. It’s all about making your education your own. Our theory? Learn what you love and you’ll love to learn.


The Ball State campus is full of traditions. Some are just for fun—such as strolling through the Quad or meeting up with a friend to watch Air Jam during Homecoming. But traditions in excellence can be found all across the campus. From having the nation’s top wireless campus to our award-winning residence hall programs, our campus is your all inclusive educational haven.
