Save the date for Bengal Family Weekend 2022 - September 30-October 2

What is Bengal Family Weekend? One weekend a year in the fall we invite all parents, partners, and family members of our Idaho State students to come and join their students on our Pocatello campus for a weekend of fun, food, and Bengal life at Bengal Family Weekend. This year, we will be welcoming you to campus on the weekend of Friday, September 30-Sunday, October 2. What can you do while you’re here? Well, if you’re looking for a way to get outdoors or burn some calories, you and your student might tackle the Disc Golf course, the Challenge Course with its climbing tower and giant swing, the fitness center (free admission!), or a hike to the iconic columns on Red Hill. Just need to wind down and play a little? How about free bowling or billiards at the Games Center, tie-dying t-shirts at the Craft Center, catching a movie or a play on campus, or (annual crowd favorite) joining us for Bingo in the Ballroom. You won’t go hungry either. The smells of barbecue will greet you as you roll into the parking lot for check-in Friday evening. Saturday’s options will include the annual pre-football game tailgate and a Sunday brunch with your student at Turner Hall. Ready for some noise? Join the BFW team at the Saturday football game or catch one of our other weekend athletic events. Also, explore our Pocatello community eateries and other businesses with BFW member discounts and incentives. We’ll have a lot packed into the weekend, ready for you to choose your great Bengal Family experiences! Watch for more details, coming soon.
