Young Alumni Council Welcomes New Members

Ball State’s young alumni are an important part of the Cardinal family, and those who have graduated within the past 15 years are invited to join Ball State’s Young Alumni Council (YAC), a group of alumni volunteers seeking to remain engaged and empower others to do the same. The mission behind YAC is to foster a culture of engagement and giving by sparking nostalgia, driving young alumni engagement through time, talent, and treasure, and educating current students on becoming active young alumni.

Through social events, service projects, programs, and career resources, volunteers craft and gear fellow young alumni toward relatable interests and needs. This year, YAC is thrilled to welcome eight new members.
