Every 107 seconds, an American falls victim to sexual assault. But students at The College of Idaho want people to know: “It’s on Us” to stop sexual assault and create a community of respect.
The “It’s on Us”pledge is a commitment to prevent sexual assault by recognizing that non-consensual sex is sexual assault, identifying situations in which assaults may occur, intervening in situations where consent has not or cannot be given, and creating an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
The College of Idaho has a long history of fostering and supporting student leaders who seek to make a difference on campus and beyond. Whether in the local community or on a global scale, many C of I students have dedicated themselves to making a positive impact on the lives of others. And this spring, current students Dulce Sanchez and Moha Azhar Mudaqiq represented the C of I at the annual Clinton Global Initiative University conference in Florida.
The College of Idaho’s Model United Nations group produced another impressive result at the 2015 Conference of National Model United Nations, earning a Distinguished Delegation Award for its representation of The Republic Maldives at the March 23-27 conference in New York City.
The Distinguished Delegation Award is the second-highest honor a team can achieve at NMUN. It is the second such honor for the C of I program, and the seventh consecutive NMUN conference where the team has returned to Caldwell with an award.
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.
The College of Idaho Department of Theatre & Speech Arts is pleased to announce its spring production, "You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown," a two-time Tony Award-winning musical comedy based on the Peanuts comic strip characters.

For the second consecutive year, The College of Idaho will offer summer classes to students and the community. The C of I has expanded its summer course selection this year, with both introductory and advanced classes offered in a wide range of subjects. 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.
