Official Game Day T-shirt Design Contest
Each year the University of Idaho gives its students, alumni, fans and supporters the opportunity to leave their mark on the Vandal Game Day experience with the Vandal Game Day T-Shirt design contest.
SArb invites mothers of current students to come to campus to celebrate student talent, achievement and get a taste of campus life. Students are encouraged to invite their mothers to campus to get a taste of what day-to day life is like for their kids. The schedule for mom’s weekend includes activities such as a brunch for students and their mom’s, a Silver and Gold football scrimmage, Phi Delta Theta Turtle Derby, Kappa Kappa Gamma Fun Run, dinner and entertainment and films.
SArb invites fathers of current students to come to campus to celebrate student talent, achievement and get a taste of campus life. SArb hosts many major events over the weekend including the annual father/student Golf Tournament, alumni reception, dinner or breakfast.
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 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.
Silver and Gold Day
Silver and Gold Day is held April 7 in honor of the ceremonial birthday of the Alumni Association (April, 1898). An award reception is held each year. The Alumni Association Board of Directors selects recipients to be honored at a reception where SArb members assist in hosting, greeting and socializing with local alumni.
