Construction of ICCU Bengal Alumni Center on schedule

POCATELLO, Idaho (KIFI) – The Idaho State University ICCU Bengal Alumni Center is taking shape on campus.

It has large gathering spaces including an event space that can accommodate up to 950 people for large receptions or concerts.

It has a Hall of Champions, alumni offices, meeting rooms, and outdoor patios and gardens.

On Friday, a group of former students toured the 26,000 square foot building which will become an important gathering place for the Bengal nation.

“We have over 80,000 of them and when they come to Pocatello, where are they going to go? We just never had a gathering place,” Scott Turner said. “And it’s going to be wonderful for that and a lot of that will lead to support for the university. Because when alumni come back and see a wonderful facility like this, they’re going to want to be more important and they’re going to want to help college, so we’re looking forward to that. A very win-win situation for everyone.”

The alumni center is expected to be completed next spring.
