And for some Yotes, it was their first time presenting.
“I was excited, but also nervous,” said junior math-physics major Natasha Dacic.
It’s that time of year again. No, we’re not talking about Christmas—unless the notion of the Yotes taking to the hardwood for the 2016-17 basketball season feels like Christmas to you. And with the nationally ranked Yotes off to a hot start, it just might!
ALAS. The letters stand for the Association of Latino Americano Students. But in reality, ALAS stands for so much more. The club is a family for Latin-American students, many of whom are first-generation college students. It also offers a support system for students to talk about problems, ask each other for help, or just have fun—all very important as they navigate college life and integrate into the C of I community.

Alumni News & Notes: Camrin Braun ’11 has been awarded a Steven Berkley Marine Conservation Fellowship. Braun is a fourth-year doctoral student in the Joint Program in Oceanography at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. His research broadly focuses on how large pelagic fishes interact with oceanographic features and what that means for species’ behavior and ecology. This requires accurate data on individual fish movements, which are difficult to acquire with traditional light-based geolocation techniques.

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.
