Alumni Newsletter

Dear Broncos,

During the summer, a few students take classes, there are camps at Albertsons Stadium, and hardworking crews spruce up the grounds and facilities. Still, for a few months every year, Boise State University can feel like it’s taking a big breath.

Those months are coming to an end. Move In Day lands on Thursday, Aug. 18, and the first day of fall semester classes is — wait for it — Monday, Aug. 22. On behalf of the Boise State Alumni Association, I want to be among the first to welcome Broncos back to campus. They are the energy behind everything we do here. If our alumni feel a desire to participate and serve our incoming students, the Student Involvement and Leadership Center has a full list of events where we can lend a hand.

They bring this place to life as they fill our dorms, classrooms, the library, gyms and other facilities. As alumni, let’s take this moment to remember what it felt like to be a student on campus. Those were important moments for so many of us, and I’m proud to be able to share the Boise State experience year after year.

I’d also like to consider our students who will not join us on campus. We have a remarkable Extended Studies program that allows Broncos to pursue their degrees in their home communities. That’s an incredible feature that brings Boise State to our students, and I want them to feel every bit the Bronco as those who attend classes in person.

On another note, I invite everyone to save the date: President Marlene Tromp will hold her State of the University address at the Morrison Center on Wednesday, Aug. 17, beginning at 10 a.m. If you’re unable to make it but are interested in hearing her remarks, a streaming option is available online.

Warmest wishes,
Lisa Gardner
