or cash at the cashiers window or at the dance.

NOTE: This punch card is not limited to just one person, you may use it for just yourself or up to 15 people at one time.

If you're an avid dancer, we are now offering a $15 punch card good for 15 weekly dances, including Party in the Hart (aka 15 dances for $15). You may purchase it at the door of the dances or purcahse online.

The price for all weekly dances and Party in the Hart has increased to $2 with I-card and $3 without. But with this card you are only paying $1 dollar.

Paying at one dance gets you in to both dances for that night; Country and Swing or Latin and Ballroom.

Propose a new activity

Have a great idea? Make it a reality by proposing an activity and becoming the Manager of the event! Many of our current activites (like Mystery Dinner, Fan Faire, Masquerade ball) were proposed by students in the past. Submit your idea here!...

BYU-Idaho encourages students to explore ideas for new activities. In fact, every aspect of Student Activities is run by Student Leaders. The following information outlines how to get your new activity approved and implemented on campus:

Step #1: Sharing your idea

To do this you will propose your idea through the
online application.
If you would like help writing your proposal, you can contact a Student Leader or Advisor by visiting the Activites office in MC 101 (across from the bookstore).

In your online application, select the area you think your event would fall under (ex: a dance would be Social, a workshop would be Talent).
Once you submit your proposal, it will go to the appropriate Student Leader or Advisor for review.

Step #2: Present

After initial review, the Student Leader or Advisor may invite you to present your idea to the Student Activities Council.
The Student Activities Council will hear your proposal and address any concerns. If your idea is not approved, you will need to modify it and present it to the council again.

Step #3: Implement

Once your idea is approved the real work begins. You will then be given the necessary tools to implement your idea as well as mentors (a Coordinator) to help you be successful in your event.
