Have a Seat: The History of Professor Howard Berger’s Bench

It can be seen from just about any spot near Morrison Quadrangle on The College of Idaho campus. Faded purple paint curls off weathered wood slats. The bench could use a good sanding and a fresh coat 

“I’d like it to look decent,” Professor Howard Berger says. “You know, the old redwood stuff I like. This looks too corny.”

Faded paint or otherwise, Berger has been sitting at his bench as long as he can remember—virtually since he began teaching history at The College of Idaho in 1982. It just “became a way of life.”

'Road Stories' exhibit explores the road trip of life

A road trip is a journey. We travel, riding in an automobile with family, friends or alone, and our experience is as much a function of the plan as it is of the unknown. That journey is explored through “Road Stories,” the newest exhibit at The College of Idaho’s Rosenthal Gallery of Art.

The exhibit, on display through Dec. 4, is a mixed media installation that invites the viewer to participate in a journey that takes place from behind the wheel and within the gallery. An artists’ talk and reception is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 14.

Seagraves Foundation gift fosters C of I philanthropy

“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.” Those words once floated off the famous tongue of boxing legend Muhammad Ali. And it is fair to say The College of Idaho Student Philanthropy Council, along with the Seagraves Family Foundation, have their rent covered.

Alumnus makes mark in Washington soccer league

While playing soccer at The College of Idaho, recent graduate and former goalkeeper Colin Benham-Marin ’14 didn’t win any all-conference awards. He wasn’t a big name.

But after five years of donning purple and gold, Benham-Marin is working to make his dream of playing professionally a reality. Benham-Marin burst onto the scene this summer after joining Wenatchee FC, a team in the newly formed Evergreen Premier League in Washington (EPLWA).
