Cardinals Connect

Ball State’s young alumni are an important part of our Cardinal family. If you graduated from Ball State 15 years ago (or fewer) and you miss campus, it’s our goal to keep you connected! From social events to service projects or career resources, we hope you’ll stay in touch.

The Young Alumni Council is a group of alumni volunteers who seek to empower and engage you, our young alumni, through events, programs, and experiences that are especially crafted and geared to your interests and needs.

Apply for the Young Alumni Council!

Applications can be submitted any time throughout the year and will remain active for three years when the next round of positions open up. To be considered for the new class of the Young Alumni Council, applications must be submitted by May 30.
