MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - Ball State University is considering building a so-called sorority village to house the growing number of women who want to be part of the school's Greek community.

The Muncie campus' new strategic plans calls for completion of phase one of a sorority village by 2017. One proposal calls for building a townhouse-style complex that would house about five sorority chapters.

Ball State vice president for student affairs Kay Bales tells The Star Press there's a growing population of students who want to be part of the Greek community. She says research indicates students living in a community of people with shared interests see an improved academic performance.

The number of Ball State students in sororities or fraternities has grown nearly 50 percent in the past five years.
