Idaho Central Credit Union Bengal Alumni Center
A Place of Welcome
Ground breaking on alumni center draws closer
Idaho State University will soon have a new space to welcome alumni, friends, students and visitors.
The Idaho Central Credit Union Bengal Alumni Center will be located on the corner of North 15th Avenue and Memorial Drive in Pocatello.
Idaho State Executive Director of Alumni Relations and Advancement Communications, Ryan Sargent sees the new center as a gathering place for alumni, friends, visitors and students. Features will include a large open courtyard, a large event hall, meeting rooms and an atrium. The center will also be home to administrative offices for Alumni Relations and the ISU Foundation.
For more than 40 years, the Alumni Association has welcomed guests at the Magnusen House, a historic single-family home on Seventh Avenue near campus. Sargent says the new facility will allow the University to better showcase the open, welcoming feeling people get at Idaho State University.
“The Alumni Center will serve as the gateway to campus and welcome the world to ISU,” Sargent said. “The building’s architectural design communicates warmth, hospitality and, really, ISU pride.”
For a donation of $1,000, which can be paid over time, alumni and friends can etch their name in history on a paver that will be located outside the new center.
“This new facility will be a gathering place for not only our alumni, but for our friends, visitors and students,” Sargent said.
