ISU CommUniversity, or CommUniversity for short, was established in 2009 to strengthen the relationship between "town and gown." Two events are held each year: Welcome Back Orange and Black and Celebrate Idaho State.
Welcome Back Orange and Black is hosted by the community and is held on the first day of classes to welcome students, faculty and staff of Idaho State University to the Greater Pocatello area.
Celebrate Idaho State is hosted by ISU for the community to showcase the University's various clubs, organizations and programs held on campus.
KEEP CALM and Paint the Town Orange & Black Decorating Challenge!
The Idaho State Journal and the ISU Communiversity Committee challenges all businesses and residents in Pocatello and Chubbuck to “Welcome Back” our ISU students by decorating “Orange & Black.”
