Idaho State University students and administrators unveiled an eight-foot-tall peace pole on the ISU campus in Pocatello May 4.

The project was spearheaded by ISU students over the past year. The pole bears the words “May peace prevail on earth” in 16 different languages. Peace poles, such as the ISU pole, are found in more than 180 countries around the world and are an international tradition that began in Japan in 1955.
