 Ball State vs Toledo
 The family carry-in before the Ball State vs Toledo game was a
 great success! Here are the highlights.
 Although Ball State lost the game to Toledo, the families
 who attended the carry-in agreed that the event was a
 winner! More than 50 BSU Women’s Club members and
 family braved the snow to gather for a pre-game carry-in
 meal in the Architecture Building Atrium in January.
 Charlie Cardinal put in an appearance, entertaining the
 adults and alarming some of the younger children! After
 enjoying an abundant meal, everyone was able to sit
 together and watch the game. Better luck next year, Cards!                              Yearbook Updates
