You will find that your freshman experience at Ball State will probably be a bit different from your friends' experience at other schools.

How many freshmen do you know get prepared to work on research? How many freshman do you know get to work with high-tech equipment? Our freshmen get that and more.

Your success is a team effort between us and you. Along with our graduate students, we’ll help you get ready for each test in general chemistry, and that starts from day one of class.

Providing a supportive environment to all students is important at Ball State. The university's Freshman Connections and other programs will help you get off to the right start.
