Ball State is expecting record enrollment this fall. At last week’s Board of Trustees meeting, projections showed total enrollment may reach 22,179, which would beat the previous record by 32 students. This comes as Ball State is in the process of demolishing its largest residence hall. IPR’s Tony Sandleben explains how the university plans to keep up with increasing enrollment.
