What's new on campus this year: A look at construction projects on campus

As a Cardinal, you will hear mentions of old buildings and complexes that were once part of Ball State’s campus. The LaFollette Residence complex, or maybe the parking garage north of Woodworth. In the past four to five years, Ball State has taken on several construction and remodeling projects all across campus—easy to be seen on a drive or walk through campus while navigating traffic cones and road closures. The resulting projects are worth the struggle, specifically the North Residential Neighborhood completed in 2021, and the Health Professions Building and Foundational Sciences Building completed in 2019.
