Active Minds’ nationally recognized suicide awareness exhibit, Send Silence Packing, will be kicking off at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana on Monday September 14th. The display features 1,100 backpacks, representing the number of college students who die by suicide each year. Later that day the Ball State University Active Minds Chapter will host Global Speaker and Author Kevin Briggs.
A few details:
Dear Ball State University Freshmen,
If you’re like most of us, you may have already felt some level of stress before arriving at BSU. Adjusting to a new environment is difficult and should not be overlooked; many of us struggled to make friends, let go of our home life, and excel in our classes during freshman year or when we first arrived on campus

Ball State has a long and proud history of being a welcoming and accessible campus for students with disabilities, and over 700 students used at least one service from the office of Disability Services last year. I ask that you please review the information below regarding policies & procedures in working with students with disabilities. Please contact me (email@example.com; 285-5293; Student Center 116) if you have any questions or would like to discuss any of these items. Also, I have recently recorded a presentation for faculty that goes into more detail about many of these issues. If you would like to view that presentation, it can be found here: A Guide for Faculty Members
Disability Services (DS) releases a newsletter twice a year. The newsletter goes out after the fall and spring semesters to DS alumni, faculty, staff, and friends to the office. The newsletter was created as a way to highlight events, programs, and initiatives developed to create a more accessible campus for all. It also is a way to recognize outstanding students and their contributions to Ball State and beyond. Our current newsletter features those recognized at our annual awards program.
