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.
Idaho State University celebrates the graduates of the past each year, coinciding with graduation. Participants will enjoy campus tours as selected by the returning alum themselves. The group is treated to an evening reception and recognition where participants will receive their respective gold and silver pins as presented by Idaho State Universities First Lady, Dr. Laura Vailas. Participants will be seated at the commencement ceremony and recognized by the President of the Idaho State University Alumni Association Board during the director's address.
Golden and Silver Bengals' join us on Campus on each Spring during the week of ISU's Commencement (May 10, 2014; May 9, 2015; May 7, 2016; May 6, 2017). If you are celebrating your 25th or 50th anniversary of your ISU graduation and would like to join us in Pocatello, please fill out a form and mail it to the Office of Alumni Relations.
