MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - Ball State University President Jo Ann Gora says she sees good days ahead for the Muncie-based university.
 
Gora met with reporters on Monday, two days after announcing she plans to retire in June.
 
The Star Press reports Gora said she's proud of many things during her tenure including immersive learning at the university, a geothermal heating and cooling project that has attracted national publicity; the collaboration between the university and Muncie, and appearances on the Muncie campus by alumnus David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey and others.

Gora says she won't miss "the long days and long nights" required of a college president.
 
She says she and her husband will move to their home in Williamsburg, Va., after she steps down but she expects to return to Muncie for visits.
