Welcome to the family, Class of 2022!

We are proud of your achievements and wish you success wherever your path takes you. We are here for our BOLD (Broncos of the Last Decade) members even after you’ve taken your last class, connecting you to other recent graduates, introducing you to alumni working in your industry, and keeping you informed of university events and programs. We also want to show you how to stay connected to your alma mater in a way that is meaningful to you as Broncos Of the Last Decade. Congratulations, Class of 2022!

As Memorial Day approaches, we are reminded of the Broncos who made the greatest sacrifice, and honor the courage and strength of the men and women who have served our country. One such Bronco, Dr. H. David Croft, joined the Navy as a medical corpsman focusing on orthopedics in 1961. After leaving the Navy, he and his wife Jean moved back to Idaho to pursue their education. Dave enrolled along with his mother in the first undergraduate class at Boise College. Following graduation, the family moved to Michigan, where Dave earned a doctoral degree in dentistry from the University of Detroit. The family returned to Idaho, and he began his dental practice in Caldwell, serving the community there until his retirement in 2006.

Besides his family as his #1 love, Dave was an ardent supporter and fan of all things Boise State University. He and Jean attended athletic and non-athletic functions to promote, fundraise, and generally show their support. Dave served as president of both the Boise State Alumni Association and the Bronco Athletic Association. He was awarded both the Distinguished Alumni Service Award and the Bronze Bronco to recognize his commitment to the Broncos. It was commonplace to see Dave fitting mouthguards for a Bronco team in the morning, then stopping by a tennis match to cheer on former tennis Coach Patton. Dave would finish with an evening game in Albertson’s Stadium, a wrestling match in the “Old Gym,” or a basketball game in Extra Mile Arena. He and Jean were all things Bronco ALL THE TIME for more than 50 years. We honor and thank all Broncos who have served our country!

Go Broncos!

BOISE STATE NIGHT AT THE MARINERS + SEAFAIR MEANS PREPARE NOW

If you haven’t made plans to join us for the Boise State Night at the Seattle Mariners, you should do so soon! There is a lot going on the weekend of August 5-7 including Seattle’s signature Seafair event. If you are traveling from out of town, plan to make hotel reservations early. Hotels are starting to book up quickly in the downtown Seattle area. It may be more economical to stay near Sea-Tac airport (find hotels here) and use the light rail (free ticket on game day with a Mariner’s ticket).
