Welcome to BYU–Idaho Alumni. You are joining over 170,000 alumni who have experienced the 'Spirit of Ricks' and retain it through continued association with the university. Many of your fellow alumni continue their level of association by serving as BYU–Idaho Ambassadors and Mentors, helping us "link students and alumni for good."
As a graduate of BYU–Idaho, you are helping to fulfill the prophecy made by Jacob Spori on November 12, 1888. On that day, the very first day of this school, he announced: "The seeds we are planting today will grow and become mighty oaks, and their branches will run all over the earth."
As a graduate of BYU–Idaho, you are helping to fulfill this prophecy. We look forward to hearing your progress as you become "a mighty oak" and hope to keep track where you go as you "run all over the earth." Please remember where the seeds were planted and where your educational roots are.
We hope you keep us informed of your successes, life changes, and new addresses.
