Updated Message Regarding Delaware County Disaster Emergency Declaration

Saturday, March 21, 2020

Last evening, the Delaware County Commissioners issued a Disaster Emergency Declaration. In this Declaration, the Commissioners ordered most businesses and services in Delaware County to close, with specific exceptions, several of which apply to Ball State University.

In light of the Declaration, the president of the university is asking all students who still remain in our residence hall to move out as soon as possible.

Our Student Life Counselors (SLCs) are calling all parents whose students still remain in the residence hall and asking you to come get students today (Saturday, March 21) or tomorrow (Sunday, March 22). If you were planning on returning to the residence hall to clean out your student’s room or retrieve your student’s items, please do not do so until further notice. If you have mitigating circumstances, please call 765-285-8125.

We will continue to provide instruction online through the remainder of the semester unless otherwise notified. Thank you so much for your cooperation and understanding!

Dr. Vickie Barton
Executive Director
