Golden I Reunion Invite 2015

Golden I Reunion 2015

What is a Golden I?

The word Golden (gold•en [gohl-duhn] means: 1) exceptionally valuable, advantageous, or fine; 2) having glowing vitality; 3) radiant; 4) full of happiness, prosperity or vigor) and this best describes University of Idaho Golden I; our alumni of the university of 50 years or more! Please join us on campus at the University of Idaho in the days leading up to our annual Homecoming Celebration for the Golden I Reunion. “Come Home” and receive your commemorative Golden I pin noting your 50+ years since graduation.
