Community Resources

Banking & Money

Students will need to pay for incidental expenses (use of the laundry, hygiene items, snacks, movies, etc.) but should not bring large sums of money to the Academy. The Academy cannot cash checks. Several banks/credit unions are located in the Academy area.

Postal Services

A full service post office is available in the basement of L.A. Pittenger Student Center, located across the street from the Academy, with hours of operation of Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (excluding holidays). Student mailboxes are located in the Academy residence hall (Wagoner Complex). Upon arrival at the Academy, each student will be assigned a mailbox that is shared between roommates.

Incoming mail should be addressed as follows:

Name of Student
BSU, Indiana Academy – Wagoner Complex
Mailbox #
Muncie, IN 47306

If a street address is required for delivery mail should be addressed as follows:

Name of Student
301 N. Talley Ave.
Wagoner Complex
Mailbox #
Muncie, IN 47306

Religious Services

The school recognizes the desire of parents/guardians to have their children attend the religious services of their choice. Students may attend services by walking to nearby places of worship or by arranging transportation with proper parent/guardian approvals. The Academy cannot provide transportation to any religious service.


The Village area, located within walking distance of the Academy, has restaurants, shops, and a convenience store. Muncie Mall, Northwest Plaza, and some discount stores are located in the vicinity of the Academy. The free (with student ID) Muncie Indiana Transit System (MITS) is available to students and may be used to get to these and other areas during MITS scheduled hours of operation.


The Ball State University Public Safety Department provides the Academy with 24-hour security services to promote a safe and secure environment. The office may aid in disciplinary and safety matters at the Academy’s discretion.

Additionally, the Academy’s Front desk is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while students are in residence. The Night Office Manager is available seven days a week to answer phone calls to the Front Desk, as well as makes periodic rounds throughout the building nightly. The Night Office Manager will occasionally be required to knock and enter student rooms to follow up on concerns.
