An All American Road Trip - Part One
(Ball State University-Muncie, IN)
May 31 - June 22, 2012
All men by nature desire knowledge.
Bobbie and I left our home in Virginia and headed West to Indiana for our niece's, Maureen O'Leary, Graduation from high school in Zionsville, IN. Zionsville is surburban Indianapolis and we were able to make it the west side of Columbus, Ohio which allowed us enough time to travel to Indianapolis via Muncie where Ball State University is located. It is my Alma Mater and I hadn't been there in years and wanted to visit and see how much it had changed. It was nostalgic and so much fun too - my years there were formative leading me to the Classics and eventually teaching Latin in Virginia.
L. A. Pittenger Student Center
There used to be a parking area here where I managed to receive quite a few parking tickets.
The Tally Ho Restaurant in the Student Center - Much Changed Since the 1970's
The University Book Store was located right across from the Tally Ho
but was moved 13 years ago to the Atrium located just beyond the Teacher's College.
