Ball State’s dual credit program: Unlocking high school success with college opportunities

Imagine you could complete 30 hours of college credit before ever even graduating high school. To some, it might seem like an unimaginable concept on top of the workload they already have to satisfy their current academic requirements.

Students hold protest for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war at Scramble Light

This is a sentiment shared by Eyal Rawitz from Tel Aviv, Israel, and Nawar Albarak from Kuwait, a country that borders Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Though she isn’t from Palestine, her grandmother and many other family members are there. Rawitz and Albarak, though they are both students at Ball State University, had the chance to meet and discuss their experiences with each other at the Scramble Light on Friday during a pro-Palestian protest that called for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.
