A Campus Visit begins at Ball State University's Welcome Center located in Lucina Hall, home of the Office of Admissions. Attend an admissions information session and participate in a student-guided walking tour of campus. You'll see a residence hall room along the way. Please plan to spend approximately three hours on campus.
Juniors, seniors, and transfer students may also request an academic appointment with a faculty member or representative in their major area of interest. Academic appointments are offered Monday-Friday when Ball State classes are in session. Appointments are at the discretion of the academic department and may be scheduled before or after the information session and campus tour. Our Welcome Center staff will contact the department to arrange your appointment and will mail you a finalized itinerary.
