Enjoy this preview of this year’s Homecoming festivities

“Fly Your Way Back Home” is the theme for our annual homecoming and is present in every event we’re excited to offer this year. During this special time, the homecoming team has evolved to include new ways for everyone celebrating to share in the fun safely, even from across the country. Expanding on our exciting in-person offerings, we have a suite of new remote content to share, like our virtual alumni panel on Wednesday, October 20th, and our other digital offerings, including access to Talent Search and Air Jam, which will be viewable after the in-person shows take place on campus. The Ball State Homecoming YouTube page will be the home of all our recorded performances, so make sure to subscribe to be informed as soon as new videos become available. Also, be sure to catch our legendary Bed Race live-streamed for all who can not make it to campus!
