The Women’s Center was designed to meet those health needs unique to the female student population at Ball State.
We offer routine health screening including Pap smears and contraception services. We also provide evaluation, treatment, education, and counseling for a variety of women's health problems, with ready access to referral sources if necessary.
Our staff encourage female students to learn everything possible to be responsible and healthy in their lives. They emphasize wellness promotion and disease prevention in a caring, confidential, and nonjudgmental environment.
