Ball State plans for new residence hall to be hub for education, humanities majors

LaFollette Residence Hall was a key structure in Ball State’s campus skyline just two years ago, casting a large shadow over the two-story Carmichael Hall close by. Now, the majority of LaFollette and all of Carmichael Hall is gone, and in their place stands the North residential neighborhood, which includes North Residence Hall and North Dining. The new residence hall will open in fall 2021.
