Golden/Silver Bengals

Each year, in conjunction with spring commencement, we welcome back those who graduated 50 and 25 years ago to celebrate their anniversary as Golden and Silver Bengals.


The ISU Alumni Association recognizes its 50 and 25 year graduates each year in connection with Spring Commencement. Graduates of 50 and 25 years ago are invited back to campus as special guests. Golden and Silver Bengals are invited to participate in the annual tradition of “March Through the Arch” for current graduates, are special guests at their individual college’s year-end recognition events and are recognized with their Golden or Silver Bengal pins at the Alumni Awards Breakfast along with Professional Achievement Award recipients and Outstanding Student Achievement Award recipients. They will be provided special seating and recognition at the Commencement ceremony held in Holt Arena.
