Vandal Walk

Vandal Walk

This event kicks off the fall semester welcoming new students to the University of Idaho campus by taking them on a reverse of the walk they will take at Commencement.  Vandal Walk is led from the Kibbie-ASUI Activity Center to the Presidents’ Barbeque at Administration Lawn where faculty and staff serve the new students dinner. As Vandal Pride advocates, SArb members hand out the Official Vandal Game Day T-shirt to all new students and leads the incoming class in a favorite Idaho tradition – the fight song.



Grad Fest is a celebratory event where graduating students can purchase commencement regalia, order announcements, pick up their honor cords, get their photos taken and take a survey about their experience at the University. SArb represents the link between the Alumni Association and the students and it is their charge to assist soon-to-be grads and let them know how to stay connected to Idaho after graduation. It is also a time where aspiring Tradition Keepers can receive their incentive pin or medallion.

Easter Hunt

Easter Egg Hunt

SArb invites area children 0-12 years old to the University of Idaho Administration Lawn to scout for eggs. The event is a fun and controlled environment for children as well as a way to connect alumni and students.  Those finding the silver or gold eggs win a special prize.
