Idaho State University will celebrate 216 graduates on Monday, May 9, at 6 p.m. in the Idaho Central Arena in downtown Boise. The annual ceremony will recognize graduates who took classes at ISU’s Sam and Aline Skaggs Health Science Center in Meridian, while also celebrating the largest-ever class of associate degree graduates from Renaissance High School.
“I am proud of each and every graduate,” said Idaho State President Kevin Satterlee. “Commencement is a culmination of years of hard work and perseverance, and we will celebrate thousands of Bengals who have reached this life-changing milestone. Our graduates will now go out into the world well prepared for the future.”
Those specifically graduating in the Treasure Valley include Doctor of Physical Therapy, Doctor of Pharmacy, Doctor of Education, Doctor of Nursing Practice, and master’s degrees in business administration, counseling, human resource development, medical laboratory science, physician assistant studies, social work, and speech-language pathology. Additionally, a number of graduates with bachelor’s degrees will be recognized.
At Monday’s ceremony, Idaho State will also celebrate and recognize 95 Renaissance High School seniors who have earned their Associate of Arts in University Studies. Their degrees were made possible through a partnership that began in 2012 with West Ada School District and Idaho State’s Early College Program. The number of associate degrees has steadily increased from 9 in 2013 to more than 100 graduates in 2022.
The ceremony will stream live on the University’s YouTube channel.
