Biographical Note / Historical Note / Administrative History

The Ball State University Campus Chest was a student-run fundraising campaign hosted by the school annually to raise money for Ball State and charitable organizations. Each dorm would sponsor students to dress up in outlandish costumes and compete to raise the most in donations. The drives also included themed events such as dance marathons and even air guitar competitions during the 1980's.
