Classes of 1967–68 50-year Reunion Planned for Homecoming

Classes of 1967–68 50-year Reunion Planned for Homecoming

We are celebrating our 50-year anniversary all year — and the special classes of 1967 and 1968 are too! It was 50 years ago that the class of 1967 walked across the stage to receive the first four-year degrees granted at Boise State University. These alumni helped with the transition of Boise State from a two-year college to a four-year university. A dedicated group of alumni from the classes of 1967 and 1968 are leading a 50-year reunion planning committee. Bill Illett ’67, and Dyke Nally ’69 are co-chairing the committee with plans for a weekend full of Homecoming activities on Nov. 3-4.

Total Eclipse of the Start

Total Eclipse of the Start

The university will throw an Eclipse Watching Party on the Quad that day, starting at 10 a.m. — faculty, staff, students and any families still in town from move-in weekend are encouraged to attend. Though the “path of totality” is farther north in Idaho, the eclipse will be nearly complete in Boise. It will begin at 10:10 a.m., with the total eclipse starting about 11:25 a.m. and lasting about two minutes, according to Boise State’s physics department. Boise State physics professor Brian Jackson has been hosting a series of educational events across the state and is planning both a conference for visiting professional astronomers and an event for the public at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 20, in the Student Union Simplot Ballroom.
