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.
