Bengal Visit Day
Saturday, April 15
Bengal Visit Day is ISU's spring campus preview and visitation day. This spring event is primarily geared for high school juniors and their parents, as well as prospective transfer students. However, any prospective students are welcome to attend.
Join us for an informative day on Saturday, April 15. This is your opportunity to get a close look at ISU's campus. You will learn what ISU has to offer from representatives in admissions, financial aid and scholarships, housing, academic programs, clubs and organizations, and more.
Students who attend this event, and are currently in their junior year of high school, have the opportunity to submit a short personal essay, for the chance to win an educational award. Three awards will be given at the conclusion of the event: one for $1000, and two for $500. Students who are interested in participating in the essay contest, should submit a 1-2 page essay to the Idaho State University Admissions Visitor Center, no later than Monday, April 3 at 5pm. They may submit the essay electronically by sending it to email@example.com, or by fax at 208-282-4314. Participants should choose from one of the two prompts listed below.
- Presuming there was only one open admission spot remaining, why should Idaho State University choose to accept your application and not that of another student?
- Tell a story that directly or indirectly illustrates the type of person you are.
Essays will be judged on the following criteria:
- How closely the chosen prompt is followed
For questions or clarification, please contact the Idaho State University Admissions Visitor Center, at 208-282-2123.
