Missed classes mean shorter weekends at Ball State

MUNCIE, Ind. – Many of Ball State University’s 18,000 students are facing Friday evening and Saturday classes to make up for two days of courses canceled by extreme cold this month.

Ball State officials called off classes Jan. 6-7 on the Muncie campus as wind chills reached about 35 degrees below zero. Those were the first two days of Ball State’s spring semester, while Indiana and Purdue universities didn’t start classes until the following week.

Ball State Provost Terry King told The Star Press the makeup times are the least disruptive. King says other options were to extend the semester or take time away from spring break.

The classes will be made up during the Friday evenings of Jan. 31 and Feb. 7 and the Saturdays of Feb. 1 and Feb. 8.
