Office of Presidential Events

Welcome! The Office of Special Events at Idaho State University plans and implements all events hosted or sponsored by President Arthur C. Vailas. These range from intimate dinners to campus-wide celebrations. We strive to maintain high standards, meet well-defined goals, and ensure that each guest has an enjoyable, memorable, and meaningful experience.

Each university event should represent the university in a professional and positive manner, and have a clear purpose that communicates a specific message to its guests. Although we do not have the resources to plan events for other departments at the university, we are happy to consult and assist them with the planning of their events in order to ensure continuity, quality, and impact. Please contact our office with questions regarding your events. You may also find many of the answers to your questions in the Event Planning Resource section on this page. Together, we will make sure Idaho State University is represented as it should be, and that your event goals are met.
