Fall 2017 School of Nursing Convocation
Boise State University – School of Nursing, provides an opportunity for nursing graduates to share their excitement and academic accomplishment with faculty, staff, fellow students, family, and friends at a special ceremony. Similar to the university commencement event, each individual student is recognized as they walk across the stage in their full graduation regalia. However, unique to convocation is the opportunity for students to invite an honored guest to walk beside them on stage. This person can be a parent, friend, partner, child, or faculty member who has significantly impacted their life and their education. Students from the BS-Nursing Program and the RN-BS Program will be presented on stage with their apricot color stole by one of the School of Nursing Associate Directors. Masters graduates will be hooded on stage during convocation, whereas Doctor of Nursing graduates will receive their doctoral hoods during the commencement ceremony. Convocation includes remarks from the School of Nursing Director and College of Health Sciences Dean. The ceremony features a keynote speaker and often includes recognition of special friends and donors of the School of Nursing. At the conclusion of the ceremony, nursing students and registered nurses in the audience will join together to recite the Nursing Oath.

Christmas Kids Bike Giveaway
Idaho River Sports – EVERY DECEMBER, BBP AND ITS DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS ORGANIZE A MASSIVE CHRISTMAS KIDS BIKE GIVEAWAY. Kids are referred by local non-profit organizations, schools, social workers, after school programs, and other like-minded organizations. Many of these kids have never owned a bicycle. Most of these kids have the cards stacked against them. All of the kids deserve a chance for a brighter path. On Saturday, December 16th BBP plans to put 400 kids on that path of opportunity, and you can make that possible. HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT BBP & THE CHRISTMAS KIDS BIKE GIVEAWAY? ADOPT-A-BIKE By adopting a kids bike, you're giving a gift that could potentially change a life, because it's so much more than a bike. It's the freedom you felt when you left the driveway for the first time. It's the independence of reaching where you need to go. It's the rolling connection between you and your community. Go to boisebicycleproject.org/adopt-a-kids-bike/ to give the gift a bicycle to a child. VOLUNTEER FOR THE CHRISTMAS KIDS BIKE GIVEAWAY The Christmas Kids Bike Giveaway is a massive event and needs a lot of helping hands to make it successful. There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities, from fixing and dreamify-ing kids bikes leading up to the Giveaway, making phone calls to families receiving a bike reminding them of the date and time, to making the magic happen day of. Go to boisebicycleproject.org/volunteer-opportunities/ to sign up to help out. SUPPORT BBP THROUGH A GRASSROOTS DONATION Giving to BBP at any level supports our mission and helps us continue to make an impact all year long. Beyond the Christmas Kids Bike Giveaway, we give bikes to kids during our Kids B.A.S.H.s, host Free Kids Fix-it nights and Mobile Bike Repair sessions to keep these kids rolling. Our Earn-a-Bike classes help older youth earn a bike of their own, while also teaching them valuable bike maintenance skills. We also continually provide affordable bikes and parts to our community, so anyone, regardless of income can know the transformative power of a bicycle. Every dollar we receive supports these programs and keeps Boise riding all year long. Head to boisebicycleproject.org/donate/ to give at any level. DONATE KIDS BICYCLES TO BBP We'll take your no-longer-needed kids bicycle and fix it up so that it's ready to roll again. Drop off bicycles at BBP, 1027 S. Lusk St during our open shop hours.
