The Micron Business and Economics building opened with a ceremonious ringing of the bell, reminiscent of the opening bell used at the New York Stock Exchange.
The $28.8 million, 119,000 square-foot building is, according to President Kustra, “Boise State’s new front door.”
A crowd of more than four hundred people attended the dedication, and special mention was made in tribute to the late Steve Appleton, former CEO of Micron Technology. Appleton, a Boise State alumnus, provided through his tenure with the Micron Foundation a $12.5 million lead gift for construction of the building.
The building is technologically savvy, equipped with adaptable classrooms, and much, much more.
