A week of fun and tradition

On Saturday, October 17, 2020, Ball State University will celebrate 94 years of Homecoming! The Ball State Alumni Association and student-run Homecoming Steering Committee plan a full week of activities for you to enjoy. Check back here for the dates in the coming months.

2020 Homecoming


A tradition that began in 1938, what Homecoming Week would be complete if it was not presided over by its king, queen, and their court? Plus, the Prince and Princess and Lady and Lad programs will give some of our littlest Cardinal fans the chance to join the fun.

Football Game

Homecoming Week culminates with an exciting Cardinals football game on Saturday, October 17 against Northern Illinois. Stay tuned for game time and ticket announcements. Don’t forget to stop by our CharlieTown Tailgate event before the game on the Alumni Center’s west lawn.
