Idaho State University’s Raise the Roar 2019 I Love ISU Campaign raised $423,210 from more than 1,440 donors, funds that go directly to support students.
The amount raised surpassed this year’s goal of $290,000 and the total raised during last year’s campaign, $280,000. Bengals from 37 different states and as far away as Fiji made contributions this year. The College of Education had the most pledges, 135, followed by the College of Arts and Letters with 127 and the College of Rehabilitation Sciences with 82. Those colleges earned $1,000, $500 and $250 in extra student scholarships, respectively, for being leaders in generating pledges.
Three teams from Idaho State University’s Rupp Debate Society made their way to final rounds at the first tournament of the year at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. Bengal debaters attended the Meghan Towles British Parliamentary Masterclass and Tournament.
Idaho State University’s A Season of Note will present John McEuen and the string wizards on Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the ISU Stephen’s Performing Arts Center Jensen Grand Concert Hall. John McEuen brings with him more than 50 years of worldwide performing with his banjo, fiddle, guitar, and mandolin.
