The Alumni Association was founded in 1906 when the Academy of Idaho boasted only 14 graduates. Since that time dedicated Bengals have helped the Alumni Association carry on a tradition of engagement and service at their alma mater.
Idaho State counts on support from alumni in order to fulfill its mission to advance scholarly and creative endeavors through high-quality academic instruction and research.
Local Alumni chapters bring ISU into your community providing alumni and friends with opportunities for networking, friendship-building and meaningful ways to remain connected to ISU.

Chapters are operated by volunteer governing boards. Typically they consist of a president, vice president, secretary/membership chair, young alumni representative and event coordinator. At least five volunteer leaders are required to start a chapter.
The Alumni Office supports volunteers and assists chapter leaders in planning events and activities to assure efficiency and effectiveness while engaging a wide range of alumni, parents, future students and friends.
