It's Homecoming Week--Show Your School Spirit!

     It's Homecoming Week!



     Founded in 1936, Boise State University has now grown to an enrollment of just under 18,500 students and an alumni base of 55,000.  We honor that growth and tradition this week during Boise State Homecoming Week.  Many activities are planned for the celebration.


     Tonight is the annual Toilet Bowl (Flag Football Tournament) sponsored by Campus Recreation in Bronco Stadium.  Games will take place from 4-10 p.m.   


     Thursday night, the play "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" will be performed at the Morrison Center by nationally-touring performers.  Tickets are available from Select-A-Seat.  For more information call 426, 1766 or visit


      Friday is School Spirit Day—everyone wear your blue and orange to support Boise State!  A street festival sponsored by the Boise State Students Programs Board is set for the Basque Block from 6-10 p.m. that evening.


     Saturday morning, there will be a presentation by Keith Allred, who is Boise State's Frank Church Distinguished Professor and a visiting professor from Harvard University.  Allred's lecture is entitled "Growth in a Fragile Environment--Bridging the Divide Over Western Environmental Conflicts" and begins at 10:30 a.m. in the College of Business building, room 105.  It is free to the public.


     The annual Homecoming Parade will be Saturday at 2 p.m. from Myrtle to Broadway to University street.  The alumni center event will feature activities for kids, great entertainment and refreshments.  The center will also salute the "Golden Graduates of 1954" with a reunion beginning at 3.


     All alumni are invited to the reunion and tailgate party at the Alumni Center before the football game on Saturday.  Then of course, the beloved Broncos take the field Saturday night trying to defend their Western Athletic Conference title against the Southern Methodist Mustangs.  Kickoff is at 6:05 in Bronco Stadium. There will also be a 10th anniversary salute to the great 1994 Bronco football team that went 13-2, won the Big Sky Conference, then won three heartstopping playoff games on the way to the I-AA national championship game. Stay tuned to BroncoCountry for details on that!
