Academic Interest Sessions
Choose two sessions where you will meet with faculty and staff to explore your majors and what makes them unique at Idaho State. Each Academic Interest Session allows you to ask questions and receive insight from current students that will help you prepare for your major.

Bengal Football – Junior Day
Bengal Visit Day also features a Junior Day as an opportunity for interested high school football coaches and players to meet with Bengal Football coaches, tour the football facilities, see a uniform showcase, and more.

Career Advising Session
If you are undecided about majors, completely lost, or have one in mind but want to see what others would be a good match for you, we have you covered. A Career Advising Session led by professional career counselors from the ISU Career Center provides direction for you based on your results from a brief FOCUS-2 Assessment. It’s simple. Take the assessment prior to Bengal Visit Day and attend the Career Advising Session.

Paying for College Session
This session includes information you need about the what, when, and how’s of paying for college. You will receive helpful direction on financial aid and scholarships, internships, payment plans and more at Idaho State. The session also includes a question and answer portion with staff and current students.

Campus and Housing Tours
Take a campus and housing tour with Idaho State students who will help you get a good feel for the campus, traditions, activities and residence life.

Student Life Fair
Preview a Student Life Fair to kick the day off after you check-in. Idaho State students and staff greet you in a fair-style showcase of the 150+ clubs and student organizations as well as campus resources available for your support.
