What is Byte?

A part of Ball State University’s award winning College of Communication, Information, and Media, Byte is a student-run, multimedia coalition operating out of Ball State University’s Unified Media Lab. Though mostly oriented toward Telecommunications and Journalism majors, Byte draws in students studying all sorts of disciplines ranging from Creative Writing to Computer Science and everything in between.

Student staff work closely with the student-run editorial board to help refine their skills and improve the quality of content produced for the organization. We are dedicated to providing the best in entertainment and pop culture related content.

We achieve this in the form of regularly produced news, reviews, features, graphics, podcasts, and videos. We work diligently to make sure that you get the best information and entertainment we can provide while providing student staff with hands on learning opportunities provided by the Department of Journalism.
