Introducing...The Homecoming Village!

Hello, Cardinals!

It's officially Homecoming season! This year we're kicking things off with a BRAND NEW Homecoming Village on Opening Day. I've asked Opening Day co-chairs, Abby Marsh and Jordan Habayeb to better explain the event in a short Q&A. This is one part of Ball State's fabulous Homecoming that you don't want to miss!

What is the Homecoming Village?
The Homecoming Village is a first of its kind event! The event, open to the community and students, will be a chance to kick off Homecoming week with all your friends at a massive street festival. Attendees can also visit the shops in the village and enjoy food and drink specials.

What activities are at the village?

We will have a Zip Line, Rock Climbing Wall, Poker Tournament, Photo booth, live bands all night, booths from local media, games, free popcorn, cotton candy & more.

How much does it cost?
The event is free for students, including the Zip Line! Community members will be charged for the Zip Line. 

When and where is it?
The event will be Monday, October 8 from 7-10 PM on Martin Street in-between Riverside and University Aves. We encourage everyone to get there right at 7 for a special kick-off! 

What is the poker tournament? 

The poker tournament is FREE and we will have several tables available for tournament members, however you must pre-register by Sept. 27. You must have previous knowledge of how the game is played. If you are just interested in learning how to play, we will have tables available for those individuals as well. Prizes will be awarded to the winners at each table.

For more information, please contact Jordan and Abby at homecoming@bsu.edu. And don't forget to follow us on Twitter (@BSUhomecoming) and Like us on Facebook (Ball State Homecoming).

Join us at the fall information meeting on Sept. 11 at 9:30 PM in the Alumni Center for information on all the Homecoming events. The meeting is your first chance for your organization to receive Ashley Points. We will also have FREE pizza and Info Packets with entry forms!

Until next time, don't forget to Play Your Cards Right!
