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.

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?”
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.
Shots were fired and punches thrown Thursday night as a massive brawl broke out inside the basement of Anderson Hall on The College of Idaho campus. It was a melee of students employing swords, baseball bats and fireball gloves to demolish one another.
Fortunately, no one suffered any injuries—unless you count hurt pride. That’s because the fighting took place within the world of Super Smash Bros., a popular Nintendo game.
