    The campus is smaller than other colleges, making it easier to get to and from classes. The smaller class sizes are ideal to learning, allowing students to form a personal relationship with their professors and receive one on one help. The professors here want to see you succeed and will give you guidance and direction to you achieve your degree. Don't be afraid to get out there and be active in college! Ball State is not only great academic wise, it also provides many options of extracurricular activities from intramural sports to all sorts of clubs. By joining different associations on campus, you will create lasting friendships with people who share similar interests as you!

    Come with an open mind; everyone is so unique and diverse so it's important to learn about those different than you! Don't be afraid to get involved! This campus has so much to offer, and you can make friends so easily! Do your work before you play. While there is always something fun going on, it's easy to become distracted and forget the real reason you're there--to get an education.
