ISU's Gratitude Challenge
As we emerge from the pandemic, we have much for which to be thankful. Idaho State University is celebrating its 120th anniversary and the College of Pharmacy is 100 years old (plus one). ISU recently broke ground on a new, state-of-the-art Alumni Center. And more than anything else, we are grateful for the opportunity to welcome students to campus in-person, to renew face-to-face acquaintances, and to meet new friends.
• Was there a professor or faculty member who taught a course that you particularly liked or provided advice that was valuable? Similarly, was there a staff member who went out of their way to help you?
• Did you meet your partner or a lifelong friend at ISU?
• Do you have great stories or special memories from participating in sports or activities, attending athletic events, hanging out in the residence halls, participating in a club or campus organization, engaging in a service project, having a friend who stayed up late to study with you before final exams, etc.?
• Who has made sacrifices on your behalf to help you to attend college – and how have you or would you wish to express your appreciation to them?
• If you were in school and attended classes during the COVID-19 pandemic, what from that experience were you grateful for?
• If you have a child who attends or has attended ISU, what about their experience are you grateful for?
• If you are an alumnus, what about your time at ISU or the connections you have maintained with the school and other alumni are you most thankful for?
• If you are a resident of Pocatello/Chubbuck, anywhere in Idaho or the Intermountain West, or any community or region that has been positively affected by ISU, what are you most thankful for?
• Other memories, stories, or even direct messages of gratitude.
