Top five Boise State campus events you can’t miss

New students are welcome to get involved with the Bronco community during these five Bronco Welcome campus events.

Convocation is one event students don’t want to miss. As important as graduation is for celebrating students’ concluding achievement, this beginning-of-the-year commencement ceremony marks the start of the long journey of education for Boise State students. Families are welcome to attend.  Convocation is on Friday, Aug. 22 at the Morrison Center. Admission is free.

As soon as Convocation is over, take a stroll over to Albertsons Stadium where Bronco supporters and families will group together on the blue turf for a photo. To enter the stadium, show your Convocation program to stadium staff. Join the tradition: “B” on the Blue.

Join transfer students for a night of tie-dye and BBQ at 6 p.m., Aug. 24 at the Lincoln Townhouses’ basketball and volleyball courts. Everyone is welcome: bring the kids, bring your significant other, even bring Aunt Bertha to come and learn about what it means to be a Bronco.

If you’ve never had blue and orange pancakes, don’t miss the Short Stack Shindig from 8:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 25 on the Quad. Take the opportunity before your first class to grab a flapjack and meet someone new.

School supplies never sounded so good. Starting at 10:30 p.m., Aug. 23, buses will be shuttling students to and from the Federal Way Fred Meyer. Pick-ups will be every 15 minutes from the Student Union Building Transit Center. Remember to bring your student ID: a night of discounts and free stuff awaits.
