You’re back! Or you’re here for the first time! Either way, you made it to Bronco Welcome and we’re all so happy and excited for you. We’re anxious to see what great things this semester and 2021 will bring, so it’s time to get the ball rolling. Here are some ways you can get prepared and stay active throughout and get the most out of Bronco Welcome.
1) Stay active with these events
Campus Recreation is hosting a 3-week fitness challenge called New U. You can earn a water bottle and t-shirt if you complete 3 virtual fitness classes (during week 1) and 10 in-person classes (weeks 2 and 3). While you’re getting active, take a free Intro to Climbing class, rent some snowshoes, or tour the Cycle Learning Center.
2) Order your class materials
This semester, it’s a good idea to order your class materials online. They can be shipped to you and that’s the quickest and safest way to get your materials. If you need to buy your books in-store, print out your booklist and schedule an appointment to pick up your books. You can find steps to access your personalized booklist here.
3) Do all the things in Boise
Whether you’re new to Boise or not, you can likely find some awesome activities in this list of things to do. Things like checking out our beautiful parks, enjoying some art in Freak Alley or the Boise Art Museum, hiking up Table Rock (if the trail isn’t muddy), and appreciating some local landmarks (like the Anne Frank Memorial or the Old Idaho Penitentiary) are on our “must-do” list of Boise attractions.
4) Take care of all your to-dos
We’ve compiled a helpful list of resources of popular offices and departments at the beginning of each semester. Get your stuff in order—like textbooks, Bronco Card, advising appointments, meal plans, parking, finances. Check out the Student Life website to discover more resources based on your interests.
5) Share your moments with us
Use the hashtag #broncowelcome and tag @getinvolvedbsu in your Bronco Welcome pictures and stories. We want to share in the excitement of Bronco Welcome, so if you follow @getinvolvedbsu on Instagram between now and the end of Bronco Welcome, you will be entered to win a free gift card! We’re all so thrilled for you to be here!
5 ½) You did it!
There’s a lot of things to check off of every student’s list before school starts and that is definitely overwhelming, but you’ve done it. A new semester is here! Celebrate yourself, and have a great semester!
