The College of Idaho celebrates Homecoming 2011 with a full schedule of events this week for students, alumni and friends. This year’s Homecoming features a special focus on science, as the College celebrates its outstanding tradition in the sciences and alumni who studied in Boone Science Hall. Festivities begin with the C of I Athletic Hall of Fame dinner and induction ceremony at 7 p.m. Thursday and wrap up with C of I alumni night at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, set for 6 p.m. Sunday in Boise. Here are some of the week’s highlights:
The College of Idaho has hired Rachel Blood as a counselor in the Office of Admission. Blood comes to the College from the Boise School District, where she worked with the Title I program at Grace Jordan Elementary School.

Blood, who grew up in Boise and attended Capital High School, is excited to be back at her alma mater.
