50-Year Reunion Celebration – Classes ’67-’68
Alumni and Friends Center – 1173 University Drive

Join classmates and friends for a 50-Year Reunion Celebration!
It was 50 years ago when the class of 1967 walked across the stage to receive the first four-year degrees granted at Boise State University. Some of these graduates, and members of the class of 1968 were instrumental in with the transition of Boise State from a two-year college to a four-year university.

In honor of this milestone, alumni members from the classes of ’67 and ’68 have planned a Homecoming weekend full of activities.

Be sure to check out our helpful hints regarding hotel discounts and football game tickets for Homecoming weekend.
