The Princeton Review had good reasons to name Ball State University one of the best in the Midwest USA…

This is Ball State.

Founded in 1918, Ball State is more than just an educator—it is an educational entrepreneur.

A few more reasons why…

The University has invested more than USD 20 million to give its students access to innovative and entrepreneurial opportunities in emerging media across its curriculum.

The more than 7,550 students who live on campus can’t be wrong—residence life is great at Ball State. About 40 percent of the on-campus student body chooses to live in one of Ball State’s 31 residence halls or two apartment complexes. And campus dining is excellent. More in the Residential Life section…
