Ball State~~~s Fishers Center
 More space and a more prominent location are just two attractions of Ball State University's new Fishers Center.

To showcase the new center, Ball State will stage an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. Feb.4 at 13578 E. 131st St., Suite 240. The new location is just off Interstate 69, exit 10, in the Saxony Development.

"Ball State has always had a strong presence in Hamilton County," said Frank Sabatine, associate vice president of economic and community engagement. "By rededicating our efforts here, we will be able to bring additional higher education opportunities to businesses and residents, which is a vital community tool for economic and workforce development."

The Fishers Center will offer master's level courses in business essentials, adult and community education, executive development for public service and more. All will be taught by Ball State faculty members.

The new location will allow Ball State to reach out to more professionals who are looking to continue their education, said Kelly Favory, the center's director.

"Part of Ball State's strategic plan calls for the university to help spur Indiana's economy, and the Fishers Center will play an integral part in fulfilling that goal by providing a convenient learning environment catering to professionals who are working toward advanced degrees," she said.

Officials from Ball State, Fishers, Noblesville and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce will participate in the ribbon cutting.
