After the annual Ball State Homecoming Bed Races on Friday, students, faculty and attendees flooded to the Health Professions Building lobby to celebrate its fourth birthday. Attendees enjoyed refreshments, free College of Health swag and a special performance of “Happy Birthday”
from a barbershop quartet, featuring vocal performance majors, Abigail Storm, Jaylen Bryant, Spencer Bethers, Madisyn Andrews-Moreno from the College of Fine Arts. You may have seen an appearance from Beneficence herself, looking strikingly like our Multimedia Specialist Michelle Jones.
In a classroom down the hall from the bustling lobby, each unit in the College of Health set up a poster board to display their own successes throughout the years. Visitors could vote on their favorite, and the winner received $200 to use for furthering their divisions important goals. The Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology was voted as fan favorite, with Social Work’s Friends themed display taking second place. The grand prize drawing for Beats Headphones went to Brooklyn Jewell.
The growth and development of the physical presence of the College of Health is only a glimpse into the important work that has happened inside and off-campus. The Health Professions Building is a place of interprofessional education and practices between disciplines, where students are given extraordinary experiences in clinics and other practicum opportunities. With the support of the Ball State community and alumni network, the College of Health can continue to provide excellent education and professional health services.
We look forward to many more years continuing education in our building and thank everyone for their support and attendance!
