A central hub of activity on campus, The Atrium in the Art and Journalism Building offers foods college students love. Whether you want a custom-made salad, pizza, burrito bowl, or vegan burger, you can find it here. The Atrium is home to two of Ball State's six national brands, Papa John's and Chick-fil-A Express.

Order your meal to go, or relax in the glass-front atrium looking out onto McKinley Avenue. In warm weather, enjoy outdoor dining on the patio.
