Orientation | Leadership | Service
The LEAD Center at Idaho State University supports the development of ISU students through
- New Student and Family Programs
- Leadership development
- Service opportunities and civic engagement
- Benny's Pantry
Each element is designed to encourage a sense of belonging at ISU, personal reflection, identity development, and community citizenship.
Our New Student Orientation (NSO) programs are designed to support the academic and social transition of our newest Bengals. New students will interact with faculty, staff, and a team of undergraduate Orientation Leaders, and learn about ongoing student support resources.
Make your family part of the Bengal Family! Each October, families, and guests of our ISU students are invited to a weekend full of athletics, fine arts, movies, bowling, and fun meals.
Benny's Pantry seeks to alleviate food insecurity where it exists at ISU through the distribution of free food assistance. The pantry's two locations are located in Pocatello and Idaho Falls.
When the new academic year begins each August, the city of Pocatello and the ISU campus bleed orange and black! All Bengals are invited to a week of campus traditions and exciting off-campus events.
Community Service & Civic Engagement is a large part of the culture of ISU. Students can participate in monthly service projects hosted by Service Corps, initiate their own service projects, and volunteer at Benny's Pantry.
ODK is a National Leadership Honor Society that was chartered at ISU in February 2015. Student members have the opportunity for networking at the regional and national levels.
Student Global Leadership Program
The Student Global Leadership Program is a series of leadership development seminars that culminates in a 13-day European experience.
