For the week of August 23 through August 31, the Student Involvement and Leadership Center (SILC) will be hosting Bronco Welcome for back to school. This will culminate with over 300 Boise State students attempting to break a world record.
Events include such things as Capture the Campus, Volunteer Expo, and comedy acts, just to name a few.
The purpose of Bronco Welcome is to give all students coming into Boise State, no matter their background, an opportunity to build a relationship with the campus community and to get involved in whatever realm inspires a passion.
Bronco Welcome has been planned by the newly hired programming assistants and marketing assistant of SILC. They have worked together in order to bring all the events of Bronco Welcome to the students and have done so keeping in mind promoting student involvement.
“Our goal is to welcome all students, whether they are traditional or non-traditional,” said Sydney Schaub, junior marketing major and marketing assistant at SILC. “We hope to help them get involved on campus whether it’s through volunteer opportunities, civic engagement, leadership opportunities, and things like that.”
The variety of events that will be featured during Bronco Welcome serve the diverse student population. Ranging from activities which are geared more towards traditional as well as non-traditional students, this multifaceted week long event provides an array of different opportunities to get involved.
“We have a really diverse staff, and the events itself are a reflection of how we set up Bronco Welcome,” said Hannah Barnett, junior marketing major and programming assistant at SILC. She highlighted the diversity of the staff as being a catalyst for planning to meet students’ interest.
With the student population growing every year as well as the variety of students attending Boise State, Bronco Welcome has been adapted to fit the needs of the student body. The future of student involvement at Boise State is paired with this changing student dynamic, and will continue to grow throughout the future.
