My name is Adam Freeby, and I am a fifth-year architecture student enrolled in CAP program at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I am currently in the process of completing the five-year professional degree specifically designated for architecture students like myself. I was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana by my two wonderful parents, Teri and Kent Freeby. I also have a younger brother, Ryan who is a student at Bowling Green University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Unfortunately, we lost my father to his battle with cancer in 2012.
In addition to taking a full-time class schedule at Ball State, I am heavily involved with my campus community. I am a proud alumna of the Indiana Kappa chapter of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. I served as our Risk Management chair to oversee the safety and well-being of our brothers. With this position, I served as a member of the fraternity’s executive committee, overseeing the chapter as a whole. I am also an active member of Ball State’s AIAS (American Institute of Architecture Students) chapter. Lastly, I am employed by the Ball State Athletic Media Relations department serving as statistical input and social media coordinator for our fellow athletic teams.
Architecture has always inspired me to be creative and learn about the different ways to problem-solve. The concepts and ideas I learned about motivate me to leave a lasting impact on the world through my contribution as an aspiring architect. I look forward to pursuing many diverse opportunities to work with different materials, designs, and project types as I continue my education and experience in the realm of architecture. My goal is to not only leave a positive mark on this world through my work but to be able to look back at projects I have successfully completed and say, “I built that”.
