Each year, in conjunction with spring commencement, we welcome back those who graduated 50 and 25 years ago to celebrate their anniversary as Golden and Silver Bengals.
The ISU Alumni Association recognizes its 50 and 25 year graduates each year in connection with Spring Commencement. Graduates of 50 and 25 years ago are invited back to campus as special guests. This group of Bengals is provided a personalized campus tour and an afternoon reception and pinning ceremony is held in their honor. ISU President Arthur C. Vailas welcomes this special group and Idaho State University First Lady, Dr. Laura I. Vailas presents each alumnus with their recognition pin. Golden and Silver Bengals participate in the annual tradition of “March Through the Arch” for current graduates, their individual college’s year-end recognition events as well as being special guests at the Commencement ceremony held in Holt Arena.
