Late Nite

 

Our mission is to provide, support, and maintain a safe and entertaining environment for the students of Ball State University. The mission is executed through creative programming efforts planned and implemented by students for students. The programs are geared towards reaching a variety of Ball State students with various interests. Late Nite @ Ball State events is held from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. throughout the academic year. Almost all Late Nite events have arts and crafts, a DJ/dance, and a film. Additional activities are determined based on the needs of students. Each event takes on a theme that is incorporated into the variety at the specific event.

 

Contributions made to Late Nite @ Ball State will support:

  • Professional development opportunities for students who work with us.
  • The Late Nite Bus Loop running every weekend for ease of access to the Student Center for our students
  • Various Late Nite initiatives
