Ball State University is forever changing and is on its way to bigger and better things under the care of President JoAnn Gora.

 “Education Redefined” is the best way to describe everything going on with Ball State University. While many may not know what “Education Redefined” really stands for, nor has any clue as to how Ball State has changed over the past few years, President Gora has decided to travel to many different states and city’s informing alumni of what Ball State stands for and many more questions they may have.

On January 10, 2007, President Gora, along with Ben Hancock, Vice President for University Advancement, traveled to Marion, Indiana. Along to help were Erica Wright, Ebony Strong, and Brian Geiselhart, memebers of the Student Alumni Relations Team (St.A.R.T), Kate Webber, Director of Alumni and Student Programs, and Ed Shipley, Executive Director of Alumni Programs.  While in Marion, we were able to enjoy a nice buffet while meeting and greeting alumni from many graduating classes. Once the mingling was complete, alumni were intrigued by the beautiful sounds of Cardinal Five. After their selections were complete, we were graced with President Gora’s presence and  presentation. After speaking to the alumni and updating them of Ball State now and what the future holds for Ball State, President Gora then presented a short video of Ball State, starting with Ball State in 1918 to the present Ball State in order for the alumni to visually see the greatness of Ball Sate.

At the end of the night, it was obvious that the alumni were quite pleased and impressed with the vision there is for Ball State University.

With Ball State growing tremendously day by day, minute by minute, you can’t help but to look at President Gora, and friends, and say, “JOB WELL DONE”!!!!
