Student Global Leadership Program

New Student Orientation
Come and benefit from our NSO program designed to support academic and social transitions 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.
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.
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.
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.
Week of Welcome
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.
