It has been 85 years since The College of Idaho’s founding president, Dr. William Judson Boone, taught botany. Eighty-five years since the sun beat down upon his fedora-shaded face as he stood in the dusty Owyhee desert and slinked over to inspect and show his students the “ruts” of a plant.

Alumnus develops product to measure brain blood flow

On an auspicious day inside a lab at the University of California Los Angeles, College of Idaho alumnus Robert Hamilton ’08 was working on a project to measure brain blood flow activity. That’s when he loaded something incorrectly into the algorithm of his software program.

C of I prof, students research star formation

When College of Idaho physics professor Dr. Katie Devine gets up at 2 a.m., the only other beings awake are of the celestial variety—the man in the moon watching overhead, stars shining and winking from their cosmic homestead. But that is exactly who she’s come to see.

Dressed in her pajamas, Devine logs into the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia remotely from her computer in Idaho. Using computer codes to control the position of the telescope across the night’s sky, Devine points it at galactic gas bubbles in the Milky Way, some 10-15 thousand light-years away.
