Convocation is a traditional milestone that marks a new journey in a student’s academic and life experience. Staff, faculty, students, and their families come together to celebrate the moment. Speakers for this year’s Convocation will include Boise State University President, Dr. Marlene Tromp, members of university faculty and leadership, a student speaker, plus a couple of surprises. Please enter ExtraMile Arena using entrances 2 and 3.
Following Convocation, students will be ushered to The Blue to form our annual B on the Blue class photo!
