Posted March 8, 2012

The second annual CommUniversity, a celebration of Idaho State University, will feature more than 80 groups providing a variety of free food, entertainment, art, culture, information, tours, and scientific displays and demonstrations from 4 to 7 p.m. March 13 in the ISU Pond Student Union.

A scene from last year's CommUniversity in the Pond Student Union Ballroom."Idaho State University and the communities of Southeast Idaho are closely linked and we again want to celebrate that relationship," said Mark Levine, ISU director of Marketing and Communications. "This event invites the community to come to Idaho State University and enjoy free food and entertainment and the opportunity to learn more about this great institution."

ISU is inviting adults, children, families, businesses, organizations and everyone in surrounding communities to come to campus. CommUniversity is a joint effort by volunteers from local communities and Idaho State University to connect, support, and foster a strong spirit of mutual support, according to organizers.

Events planned are too many and too varied to list here, but highlights include:

• Performances by students from ISU music and theater departments.

• Tours of ISU's new Research and Innovation in Science and Engineering Building on Alvin Ricken Drive

• Free food, which will begin being served at 4 p.m., includes hotdogs, ice cream, popcorn, lemonade and a potato bar.

• Other options include health screenings, visiting the Idaho Museum of Natural History and much more.

• Free bowling and pool at the Pond Student Union game center.

Parking for the event is free at the Pond Student Union and Frazier Hall parking lots.
