For the most part, ISU is not known too much for a crazy nightlife. It is a dry campus, and it is taken seriously. Many of the bars are small and do not accommodate a lot of big groups. But there are definitely places for drinkers to go. Many of the parties are not found at clubs but in personal homes. The Greek life fraternities throw quite a few parties with alcohol for their members and guests.
For those who are not so much into the whole drinking thing or are underage, clubs and organizations are always hosting events at ISU. The Latter-Day Saint Student Association organizes events like Reed Gym Night, where everybody enjoys a night at Reed Gym with huge blow-up toys and wall climbing. LDSSA also throws dances every other weekend for students to come and get their groove on. Nightlife in Pocatello is pretty much whatever you want it to be, whether it includes alcohol or not!
