Ball State is all about teamwork. But when we’re not tearing it up in the classroom, we’re showing off our skills on the big stage—NCAA Division I sports. From Lewellen Pool to First Merchants Ballpark Complex and Scheumann Stadium, our teams compete in first-class facilities. Cheering them on, we’re proud to have the number one student section in the Mid-American Conference (MAC). “The Nest” regularly sees crowds up to 2,000 students strong in Worthen Arena.

But our athletes flex more than their muscles—they also flex their brains and often achieve high grade point averages. To keep our athletes fueled academically and athletically, our Cardinal Varsity Club and its more than 3,000 members provide scholarships and academic support for hundreds of student-athletes.
