At The College of Idaho, more than one-third of the student population participates in varsity athletics, while nearly 10 percent of students are international. And, on occasion, these two distinctive C of I populations intersect.

“Paint the City of Caldwell Purple,” C of I athletic director Marty Holly said. And thanks to the efforts of the Caldwell Chamber of Commerce along with C of I athletics, “Go Purple” became a reality this fall with local businesses offering special deals to those sporting purple clothing on Fridays before C of I home football games.
And as the football season comes to a close this weekend, the C of I wants to encourage the community to ‘Go Purple’ as Yotes basketball enters another exciting season in the J.A. Albertson Activities Center.
