    Boise State gets new furry studentsEryn Shay JohnsonAsst. News Editor

    Every semester, Boise State welcomes prospective students to campus, but this year, those students might be more adorable than ever. These students arent in-coming freshmen or trans-fer students; they have fuzzy heads, wagging tails and big ol wet tongues.

    We just opened a new or-ganization on campus called Bronco Dogs for anyone interested in service dogs, hanging out with dogs or advocates of service dogs, said Taylor Neher, one of the founders of the club.

    Bronco Dogs is in the process of bringing service puppies in training to Boise States campus. So far, all of the handlers are students training the animals for gen-eral mobility, glycemic alert or PTSD comfort.

    Nehers student, Brava, is a five-month-old male gold-

    en labradoodle just starting out his training. He attends all the classes Neher does, lives on campus with her and even does homework alongside the senior health sciences major. Brava is the first official Bronco Dog.

    The puppy is training to become a glycemic alert dog. Neher, who has diabe-tes, says the dog is in scent training to help detect when her and others blood sugar is high or low.

    Bronco Dogs is already growing with three other dogs and students training on campus.

    MacKenzie Erhart, fresh-man health science major, and her pooch, Jinger, live on campus as well. Jinger is entering the final stages of her training.

    Ive had Jinger since my senior year of high school, Erhart said. Shes being trained for PTSD and mo-bility. With PTSD, it helps just having the dog there.

    Theyll do certain things like having the dog lean into you or face backwards so the dog can watch your back. Youve seen the com-mercials; they can wake you up when youre having night terrors.

    Erhart and Neher were connected with service dogs through Genesis Ser-vice Dogs, an Idaho-Based nonprofit organization. While Bronco Dogs is not affiliated with Genesis, the club has full support from Genesis to bring puppies to Boise State.

    Campus provides a re-ally unique opportunity for the dogs. Most of our (Genesis) dogs go to a wide range of ages. We have had dogs go off to college with their partner, said Carissa Morgan, training coordina-tor with Genesis. Its really awesome for them to be in the collegiate environment, like going to the Boise State football games. Its a really

    good thing to expose them to when they are younger.

    According to Morgan, the student handlers who train the dogs earn just as many benefits as the dogs do.

    In my own experience, it

    gives (the handler) so much self confidence to be able to go anywhere and have a dog with you, Morgan said. It really builds confidence and brings people out of their shell. Its a huge growing ex-

    perience.Bronco Dogs is still in

    its fledgling stages, but the group hopes to make an im-pact before three of the four founding members graduate this spring.

    Boise States smoking policy is a dragSean BunceAsst. News Editor

    A dog without teeth has no bite and neither does Boise States smoking policy.

    According to policy #9110, Boise State applies a non-smoking mandate to all uni-versity properties, with the exception of e-cigarettes, which are permitted outdoors on campus. The purpose is to create a healthier campus to live, work and go to school.

    If a student is caught smok-ing on campus, however, no violators will be fined.

    We are coming from a non-penalize policy, so we are trying to encourage com-pliance, said Lauren Baines, health educator for Wellness Services.

    On Jan. 28, members from Health Services, Campus Security and Police Services asked the student assembly for other options to prevent smoking on campus.

    Currently, if an officer ap-proaches someone smok-ing on campus, by law they cannot ask for their ID. It is Boise State policy, however, that students must show their

    student identification card to any law enforcement officer or faculty member on cam-pus if asked for it.

    Theyll say the choice of words that they want to say

    and walk off. I cant legally de-tain you because you havent really committed a crime, said Frank Harper, security supervisor for Boise State. The challenge is trying to educate you and get that message out, but it always becomes an entanglement between us and the smoker, which we dont want.

    According to Harper, secu-rity officers can refer the per-son to the Board of Student Conduct or human resources if the person is an employee.

    If we dont have informa-tion, if youre not going to be cooperative with it, its very hard for us to enforce any-

    thing, Harper said.Although the Student As-

    sembly suggested to set up smoking huts in areas around campus, no definite solution was
