The engine roared as a small bush plane flew a few hundred feet above the tree tops. Below, the Middle Fork of the Salmon River meandered through the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness. As the plane dipped lower and lower, following the river, it turned toward the right bank and a small cut-out of green grass.
Hiking down to the base of Victoria Falls in Zambia, College of Idaho political economy professor Erin Hern and students Cameron Arnzen and Ruth Nakalyowa came upon a baboon casually sitting on a park bench. As the group passed by this strange and amusing sight, the baboon rose from his seat and sauntered over to the group.
But he wasn’t monkeying around.
The baboon pulled on Nakalyowa’s backpack, yanking her down in the process. After much screaming and fighting to keep her bag, the baboon eventually was scared off.
Dun dunna nun dunna nun, Go Yotes! Dun dunna nun dunna nun, Go Yotes!
A mighty roar from the 5,000-plus fans inside Simplot Stadium echoed over the field as The College of Idaho marching band concluded playing the fight song. Each band member proudly wore a purple t-shirt which read “C of I Marching Band - Year One Founding Member.”
Downtown Boise streets are filled with the hustle and bustle of a weekday morning as College of Idaho junior Trevor Thomas walks into the Idaho State Capitol at 8 a.m. Each footstep echoes off the marble floor and through the rotunda as Thomas passes a wall filled with pictures of all 32 governors of Idaho.

When you hear rumor of a snake market in Jakarta, you cannot pass up the chance to search for it. Such was the case for eight College of Idaho students who traveled to the Indonesian capital for a Model United Nations Conference this summer.
Wandering the streets of Jakarta, the Yotes couldn’t find the snake market. But they did find an ornate, red and gold Buddhist temple as the winds started to whip and swirl with increasing fervor.
This spring, The College of Idaho Chamber Singers and string quartet took a musical tour of China. Professor Brent Wells and President Charlotte Borst accompanied the students, who performed concerts and learned valuable lessons about Chinese history and culture, the power of music and, most importantly, themselves. Recently graduated senior Caitlin Fellows chronicled the journey, including a Flickr photo album.
It’s 8 a.m. on a Thursday morning at Middleton Heights Elementary school. About 20 first-graders sit at their desks. Their eyes intently watch College of Idaho sophomore Shanna Madsen. It’s the end of her six-week stay in first grade, as part of the C of I’s Intro to Teaching class. And now, it’s Madsen’s turn to take the reins and give a lesson.
Tiana Thomas stepped into her blocks for the 400-meter hurdles, the final race of her collegiate career. She knew this race was going to hurt at the end, it always did. And even though she had the top-seeded time, Thomas knew her competitors weren’t too far behind.
On your marks.
As she sat in lane four, nerves crept up, compounded by the NAIA Nationals stage
