  • From making gardening more accessible for students with 3D-printed window shelves to recycling cigarette butt waste, Boise State students will have just five minutes and 20 slides to present their ideas on how they can help to “save the world” at tonight’s Boise State Sustainability Center's Solutions for the Earth event, 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Boise State College of Innovation + Design.

    First-year student Pangaea Finn, a math, physics and music major, says formatting her pitch into the five-minute time slot was a challenge.
    “I'll be talking about deforestation due to palm oil expansion, its impact on the orangutan population and ways to become a more sustainable consumer.”

    This inaugural Earth Week event gives students the opportunity to share creative services, products or programs in an effort to lead our community to a more sustainable future.

    Solutions for the Earth is free and open to the public.

    “Boise State’s School of the Arts is extremely proud to learn about former photography student Ron Jude’s Guggenheim Fellowship award, as it signifies an exceptional creative ability in the arts,” said Kathleen Keys, interim director of the School of the Arts and associate dean of the Boise State University College of Arts and Sciences.

He credits professors for helping him to understand that “art was an important and meaningful thing to do, and that although difficult, you could think of it as a career and lifelong pursuit.“

    Jude’s newest work, titled “12 Hz,” is described on his website, http://ronjude.com/, as “large-scale black and white images of lava tubes, tidal currents, river water and welded tuff formations: pictures describing the raw materials of the planet, those that make organic life possible.”

  • NEWS: Boise State University's Spring Commencement Ceremonies to Honor Chobani Founder Hamdi Ulukaya, Idaho Judge Sergio Gutierrez

    Boise State will honor more than 2,600 spring graduates during two commencement ceremonies set for May 11 in Taco Bell Arena, bringing the university’s total graduates for the year to more than 4,500.

    Hamdi Ulukaya, founder and CEO of Chobani, will be awarded an honorary doctorate and offer remarks during the morning ceremony. Raised in a dairy-farming family in a small village in eastern Turkey, Ulukaya launched Chobani in 2007 with the mission and vision of making better food more accessible.

    During the afternoon ceremony, an honorary doctorate will be presented to the Honorable Judge Sergio Gutierrez, who will offer remarks on the American dream. Gutierrez, Idaho’s first Latino judge, served southwest Idaho from the bench for 25 years. He immigrated to the United States from Mexico as a young child and went to work in the farm fields when he was 8. He went on to earn his GED through the Job Corps and then a Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude, in Elementary Education from Boise State University, while working for Idaho Legal Aid Services doing outreach with migrant farm workers. As a judge, he helped improve court interpreter services throughout Idaho.

    In total, 2,633 students are eligible to receive 3,049 degrees and certificates. Of those, 868 are eligible for honors: 490 cum laude, 304 magna cum laude and 74 summa cum laude. Twenty-two doctoral degrees will be awarded.

  • 🏃🏻‍♀️🥇🐴Congratulations to Boise State alumna Megan Lacy on a first place finish in what is respectfully known as "the toughest half marathon in the Northwest," The Race to Robie Creek.

    Megan, a former Boise State Cross Country-Track student-athlete, is no stranger to top rankings – in 2018 her start-up venture "Lumineye" took first place in the Idaho Entrepreneur Challenge, hosted by the Venture College at Boise State. Lumineye provides wall-penetrating radar sensors to help soldiers and first responders identify people and threats through walls.

    Earlier this month, as the CEO of Lumineye, Megan received a $120,000 grant at the U.S. Army’s xTechSearch Pitch Competition in Huntsville, Alabama, beating out hundreds of small businesses and finishing as one of twelve finalists. Megan and other co-founders of Lumineye will have another chance to compete for an additional $250,000 in funding in the nation’s capital this fall.

    The event “has given me a sense of belonging with those who know the same loss and suffering from cancer as I do; we have become close friends because of this bond that we all share," said Jordyn Pavletich, the group’s financial officer.

    The Pony Up fundraiser ends at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 24.

  • When Boise State junior Jason Moore learned about the food insecurity issues that some college students face, it motivated him to join the Boise State Full Broncos Meal Project, a short-term initiative that allows students to donate one unused guest meal swipe at the Boise River Cafe on campus, which can then be anonymously accessed by any student in need.

    “The first-hand accounts you hear are tough and I wouldn't want anyone to go through something like that alone,” said Jason, who participated in the first Full Broncos project in December, which resulted in more than 500 meals being donated.
    “Partnering with Boise State University Dining Services and the Department of Community and Environmental Health in Boise State Allied Health Sciences, we hope to make the Full Broncos Meal Project even more of a success this time around.”

    Student can donate meals now through May 11. Students with meal plans simply notify the cafe attendant at the entrance of the dining hall that they would like to donate one of their guest meal swipes to the Full Broncos Meal Project.

    Beginning April 22, students in need can ask cafe attendants for a Full Bronco Meal, which is given anonymously. There is no limit on the number of meals a student can receive.
