We recently celebrated the amazing faculty and staff at Idaho State University with a week of activities! Over 600+ individuals participated in the various events which included ISU Trivia and Crossword Puzzle games, ice cream socials at all sites, professional and personal development workshops, 2021 Be a Bengal Recognition Reception, and the annual Years of Service Staff Luncheon! We hope those who participated enjoyed getting together with colleagues, learning something new and celebrating each other's accomplishments! 

Congratulations to our activity winners and our 2021 Be a Bengal winners and nominees!
