Watch the annual State of the University address; join other fall welcome events

Fall 2021 campus activities kick off this week with President Marlene Tromp’s annual State of the University address at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 18. The event will take place in Albertsons Stadium.

Members of the campus community are invited to wear their Bronco colors and join colleagues for the first-ever address on The Blue, followed by a group photo.

Attendees must wear facial coverings in indoor public spaces ­owned or controlled by the university as well as in crowded outdoor spaces, including Albertsons Stadium, regardless of vaccination status.

For those who cannot attend in person, the State of the University address will be streamed live on Boise State’s YouTube channel. It also will be recorded and made available as soon as possible following the address.

Faculty and staff are invited to enjoy breakfast on the Student Union patio following the stadium events.
