Each month, Ball State’s photographers capture hundreds of moments on and around campus. Here are some of the staff’s favorites for November.

Taking the LEED

LEED event in Letterman Building

At the Letterman Building, the campus community celebrated the achievement of Ball State students becoming the first collegiate team in Indiana, the Midwest, and the Mid-American Conference — the fifth university team in the world — to certify that an existing building meets the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards of the U.S. Green Building Council. In the future, student teams will audit other buildings on campus and verify that they meet LEED standards. (Photo by Madeline Grosh)
