A dozen Coyotes stood atop Suicide Point. The river flowed fast, dividing the towering canyon rim. Snow-topped mountains on the left morphed into a field of natural grasses near the bank. A forest service ranch on the Oregon side of the Snake River glowed a shade of deep grassy green.
“The view at the top of (Suicide Point) was spectacular,” sophomore Brittaney Bones said. “You could really tell why it is called the Snake, with the winding of the river.”
The College of Idaho is set to host a Relay For Life event April 25-26 inside the J.A. Albertson Activities Center on the C of I campus in Caldwell. Spearheaded by C of I senior Breanna Leatham—a sixth-year Relay For Life volunteer—the event introduces a great cause to the C of I community. From 7 p.m. April 25 to 3 a.m. April 26, teams will participate in games and take turns running or walking laps around the track in the gym to raise money and awareness for saving lives from cancer.

Registration, which opens April 13, will be available online (click here). For-credit course offerings include:
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.
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.
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.
The College of Idaho is pleased to offer two scholarship opportunities for the 2015-16 Academic year in honor of George V. Wolfe, the legendary professor who founded the C of I’s Department of Political Economy in 1946. 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.
