We all have campus memories that will live forever in our hearts. Tonight we’ll have a grand opportunity to share and celebrate them as our university kicks off its 125th anniversary in Boise. Vandals young and old will pack the Grove Hotel for the opening gala tonight. Special guests include College of Law Dean Don Burnett, who will help entertain the more than 350 in attendance.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for keeping our Vandal spirit strong. Every day I’m proud to be part of the nearly 100,000 of us around the globe. Help us continue building the tradition by nominating a future Vandal to Grow the Gold.
