Every two years, one student at Ball State University gets a unique view of their alma mater as a member of the Board of Trustees.  For the last two years, that student trustee with full voting power was Dustin Meeks.  And while giving the board a student perspective on campus issues, he also was the most well informed student on the resignation of a university president.  In his final month as a trustee, he talked with IPR’s Tony Sandleben about how the board shaped his time at Ball State.
