Ball State Moving to Former Angie’s List Campus

Posted: Updated:

Ball State University has signed a one-year renewable lease for a new site for its Ball State CAP: INDY program. The program will operate from the former Angie’s List campus on the Washington Street corridor beginning in August.

Ball State CAP: INDY’s new home will serve the program’s growing numbers. The facility will focus on students in the master of architecture and master of urban design programs.

Ball State CAP: INDY will also host meetings and events for professional partners such as The American Institute of Architects, Urban Land Institute, American Planning Association and American Society of Landscape Architects.

The new space will also house the new Center for Civic Design, which will further the Estopinal College’s existing community engagement with Indianapolis.

Estopinal College’s programs cover the planning of cities, interior design, landscape architecture, historic preservation, urban design, architecture, and construction management.

“This move is a reflection of our University’s commitment to the city of Indianapolis,” said Susana Rivera-Mills, Ball State’s provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs in a news release. “Ball State University and Indianapolis mutually benefit. Our students will receive an excellent education and serve their neighbors in an urban environment. Our partners in Indianapolis will have access to the expertise and resources of one of the most comprehensive and largest environmental design colleges in the country. I look forward to this next chapter for CAP: INDY and the innovation it will bring.”
