Alumni Newsletter

Dear Broncos,

Homecoming is a reminder of the legacy of our university and its promise. When I talk with returning alumni, sometimes on their first visit to campus since graduating, it reminds me of the things that bind us to our alma mater.

Many of these conversations are about experiences alumni had on campus and the lasting friendships they made here. Overwhelmingly, it was faculty that connected them to their college, impacted their careers and inspired them to stay involved.

This year we honored 10 people who have represented Boise State at the highest level through their careers or service. On Thursday, Oct. 6, we hosted the Distinguished Alumni Awards Gala, where we celebrated their accomplishments — and how Boise State has changed their lives.

Honorees this year are titans of business, education, service, mental health and more. They have achieved great things and honored their university. The gala is just one way we give thanks to our alumni. By shining a light on them, we hope to inspire others to aim high and see the value in a Boise State education. Click here to learn more about our Distinguished Alumni recipients for 2022.

We have other ways to recognize our outstanding alumni, and invite you to share your experiences with us. If you have stories about fellow alumni, friends or educators who have had an impact, share your stories here as a Bronco Note.

Warmest wishes,
Lisa Gardner

Broncos Beautification

A group of dedicated Broncos in Colorado recently conducted a canal clean-up service project that resulted in the beautification of a 2.5-mile stretch of the canal in Denver. On behalf of the High Line Canal Conservancy, members of the Denver Alumni group pulled more than 45 pounds of trash from the area canal, earning “canal steward” status with the conservancy. Thank you to all the Denver Alumni Group members who participated in this project.
