The Muncie / Delaware County Visitors Bureau welcomes the incoming Ball State University freshman students and their families to our community!
Freshman orientation takes place June 5 – July 13, 2018. During orientation approximately 4,200 students and their families will attend orientation sessions, tour campus and adventure out into the Muncie community.
The Muncie / Delaware County Visitors Bureau will be at Pruis Hall each day during orientation handing out the Muncie Visitors Guide with a special orientation insert to each family. The information is always appreciated as most are not familiar with our community.
Once inside Pruis Hall the students and families have the opportunity to visit a variety of booths such as Ball State Sports, campus security, campus newspaper, special interest groups and much much more. Everyone then gathers in the Pruis Hall auditorium for a presentation regarding Ball State Sports with several prizes to be given.
We are a partner in the presentation with a short talk about Muncie / Delaware County. A gift of an overnight stay and passes to area attractions is given to one lucky family each morning.
The next morning the families are given the opportunity to take a bus to DWNTWN Muncie and take part in a guided tour. This give the families a feel for some of the off-campus experiences that are available to their students.
The orientation guides are always full of energy and excitement and do a great job! You can get a feel for that energy in this YouTube video by Adam VanDam made following the 2017 orientation. Click here to watch the fun!
