We value family at Boise State and include you every step of the way, beginning with BroncoVenture Family Orientation. After orientation, we help you stay engaged in your Bronco's life in a meaningful way through the Bronco Parent & Family Association.
Fall is a great time to celebrate on campus, especially for new students and families. Bronco Parent & Family Association members benefit from advance invitations to campus events and traditions like New Student Convocation, Homecoming, Parent & Family Weekend, and more!
Welcome home, new Bronco! More than 22,000 students from all across our Bronco Nation and the world are proud to attend Boise State University.
New Boise State University students and family members attend BroncoVenture Orientations. Student staff members, aka BroncoVenture Orientation Leaders, help students register for classes and learn about what it means to truly be Broncos.
Parent & Family Weekend
More than 2,000 guests were part of Parent & Family Weekend 2013, one of Boise State's favorite traditions. Click the image above to learn more, catch up with photos, or reconnect with your fellow Bronco Families. Planning for 2014 weekend events is currently underway.
New Student & Family Programs is your resource for the entire First Year Experience. Whether you are a new student just out of high school, transferring from another college or university, or coming back to school after some time away, we are dedicated to helping you stay, succeed, learn, grow, and graduate. If you are a parent or family member, we are also your first stop for learning about your role as a vital support figure in the life of your student and your involvement as a member of our extended Bronco Family.
It is our mission to both facilitate the successful transition of new students to Boise State University, and to improve the success and quality of the first-year experience for students. We seek to accomplish this through preparing students for university life‚ through providing educational opportunities, by assisting students with integration into Boise State’s intellectual, cultural, and social climate, and through our inclusion and support of the families of current students.
