Due to coronavirus precautions, we are able to offer student-guided, on-campus tours only to high school seniors and college transfer students in Spring 2021. However, we invite everyone to engage with us through a variety of other opportunities. See if Ball State is the right fit for you!
Take a student-guided walking tour of our beautiful campus to see our amazing facilities, landmarks, and vibrant learning community firsthand.
High School Sessions
Interact with our students, staff, and faculty online through live virtual sessions on admissions, financial aid, housing, and academic programs.
If you currently attend another college, connect with our Transfer Center virtually or in-person to see how your credits will transfer to Ball State.
To explore Ball State on your own, use our self-guided tours to browse our campus while listening to an audio recording of a current student leading the way. Each tour lasts about 30 minutes. Download the materials below or stop by the Welcome Center in Lucina Hall, where we’ll explain the tours and provide a parking pass for our P14 lot (weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. only).
