The College of Idaho’s speech and debate team has a new coach and a host of new faces this year, but the Howling Yotes continue to hum along as one of the top collegiate programs in the Pacific Northwest.
Most recently, the Howling Yotes completed a busy winter term, competing at the Mile High Swing tournaments at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City as well as the Scheller Invitational at Pacific University in Portland, Ore.
The College of Idaho is set to host a spring lecture series titled “Interdisciplinary Visions of Environment.” The series is a companion piece to Boise State University’s “Idea of Nature” series and three of the lecturers will speak on both the C of I and Boise State campuses.
College of Idaho head football coach Mike Moroski has announced the hiring of Chris Jewell as the Coyotes' defensive coordinator.

In addition, he embraces the standards of excellence of The College of Idaho, our athletic department, and the football program.”
College of Idaho founding President William Judson Boone famously said of C of I students “Let them come. Let them all come, and we will see what they can do.” That mantra has stuck with the College for more than 120 years as students from many walks of life – including hundreds of first-generation college attendees – have come to the C of I and found success in school, in their careers, and in life.
The College of Idaho’s joint physician assistant program has received a $100,000 grant from The ALSAM Foundation, based in Salt Lake City, to support renovations of a facility for the program as it prepares to enroll its first students in fall 2014.

The College of Idaho congratulates the 198 students who made the Fall 2013 Dean’s List.

The College of Idaho is proud to present its 2014 opera production The Magic Flute, a popular opera written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and directed by C of I senior Jordan Bowman. There will be three performances of The Magic Flute inside Jewett Auditorium on the C of I campus in Caldwell: a 7:30 p.m. opening show Jan. 24 and 2 p.m. matinees Jan. 25 and 26. Tickets cost $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and $5 for students (C of I students get in free), with all proceeds supporting the C of I opera program.
A total of 240 days separate College of Idaho fans and the debut of the school’s newly reinstated intercollegiate football team as the Coyotes will open their 11-game 2014 season on Sept. 6.
The Yotes will open the season on the road at Pacific University, returning to the Treasure Valley for their Simplot Stadium debut Sept. 13, hosting Montana Western.
The opener in Forest Grove, Ore., will come 13,438 days after the final game played by the original C of I team Nov. 12, 1977 – also against the Boxers. The Yotes were victorious in that final game, 24-23.
