The Ball State University Orient Yearbooks collection provides online full-text searchable access to editions of The Orient, the now-defunct yearbook produced by Ball State students. At present, this digital collection features editions of the yearbook dating from 1919 to 1965.
The Orient provides photographic and textual documentation of student life and campus events from Ball State's history, including pages dedicated to student organizations and academic departments. The Orient also documents sporting events, artistic performances, and significant social events and traditions.
The Orient ceased publication after 78 volumes with its final edition in 1996. A complete collection of the yearbooks in print is open for use at Ball State University Archives and Special Collections.
