“Ball State helped me create a rock-solid foundation for success, both professionally and personally. After graduation, I felt motivated, inspired and well-prepared to make a name for myself in the world of entertainment. I am eternally grateful for the opportunities and lifelong friendships I have enjoyed because of my time at Ball State and joining the DEAC was a way for me to give back to my alma mater that means so much to me.”
