Freshman skier captures national title for Yotes

College of Idaho freshman Caroline Sanden Gustafsson won a national championship and was named the Northwest Collegiate Ski Conference Skier of the Year—not bad for someone who first set foot on the C of I campus in January.

Sanden Gustafsson wanted to go to a school where she could ski and receive a top-notch education. And it’s been so far, so good for the Orebro, Sweden native.

Apples to apples: Alumnae start hard cidery

The College of Idaho is proud to showcase Kate Leadbetter ’10 and Molly Leadbetter ’11 as they take on the adventure of starting their own hard cider brewery, Leadbetter Cider Co.

The Leadbetters, in conjunction with their parents Ann and Gig, will be one of the first two hard ciderys in Idaho.

“Cider is becoming more and more popular throughout the United States and it’s a great alternative to beer and wine,” Molly said.

‘Yote Stop’ offers student services in one location

For the 2014-15 school year, The College of Idaho’s Registrar and Financial Aid departments have been working to optimize communication between students and the administration. And this winter, the two offices joined forces to officially launch the “Yote Stop,” a one-stop student services desk housed in Hendren Hall. The Yote Stop, located at the right-hand counter just past the Hendren front lobby (formerly the registrar’s counter), is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

C of I fraternity nationally recognized for excellence

Although films like Animal House and Revenge of the Nerds may perpetuate negative stereotypes about Greek Life, a College of Idaho fraternity has proven to be more than a group of party animals. C of I’s Theta Psi chapter of Delta Tau Delta—whose members are known around campus as “Delts”—recently was ranked as one of the top-ten Delt chapters in the nation for its 2014 work. The award is based on the academic achievement of fraternity members as well as their campus and community involvement.

Applications are now open for both scholarships.  Students interested in applying for either or both awards must submit an application and a current transcript to the Office of Student Financial Services in Hendren Hall by noon Friday, March 6, 2015.

College of Idaho holds Project Linus blanket drive

Valentine’s Day is all about snuggling up and celebrating the season of love. And this month, The College of Idaho will share its love with the local community by helping make blankets for sick and underprivileged children through a Project Linus blanket drive at the Karcher Mall in Nampa.

“The best blankets are the ones that are made with love,” said C of I student Allyson Sander. “And what better way to share your love with the world than by making a blanket for someone who needs a little security in their lives?”

NYC of I: Students give back in the Big Apple

The temperature hung around 25 degrees as Zoe Roberts and two other College of Idaho students stood for 12 hours in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, smashed like the cream filling in an Oreo. They had no food. They had no water. They couldn’t leave to go to the bathroom. 

Survival mode kicked in.

The family standing next to them had brought food. When they were done eating, they freed up their hands by tossing the bags to the ground.
