Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Ball State is best known for it's architecture and education programs. We are also known for our alumni including David Letterman and Papa John.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is available to all types of people. Most of the people who attend Ball State are architecture or education majors because Ball State is known for these, but there are many other majors that are prestigious and can get you a wonderful job after graduation.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I think you should look at colleges starting your junior year of high school to decide where and what type of school you think would fit you best. Once you find a school that suits you and you are getting ready for your freshman year, my advice would be to pack less than you think you should, most of the time you don't even use half of the stuff you take. Once in your dorm room, keep your door open, that way you are opening yourself up to others and make new friends. Also, get involved with anything you can, it's a good way to meet tons of people and also a good way to network later on in life. College will be the best years of your life if you plan from the start and enjoy every minute of it.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice I would give to parents and/or students is to make sure the first thing you consider is being comfortable. Money should not be the first thing because there are tons of scholarships and financial aid to go around to anyone who will put themselves to the test of college. Once a student is at college, my advice is make the best of it because it is only a small part of your whole life. Studies are the most important thing to focus on though because if you work hard you can play hard. The main point is to have fun and work hard to make your life easier as you get older. There are temptations and it is safe to say that you will give in to some of them, but as long as you keep your studies and goals right up just in front of fun, you will succeed with flyin colors.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that doesn't like to have fun and learn at the same time.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure that you visit any campus that you're thinking about attending. Ask students questions about the school that it is important for YOU to know the answer to. If you know what you're going to school for, look into the program, talk to professors, and ask students how they feel about the program itself. If you don't know what you want to do when you 'grow up' make an appointment with an advisor to talk about the availability of an exploratory program. All in all, just make sure the school works for your personality and goals, not anybody elses.
