Feast of Carols a success

The College of Idaho Choir and Chorale presented a Feast of Carols in the foyer of Langroise on Dec. 2. Choral Director Andrew Percifield selected a variety of classical and popular holiday pieces.

The audience laughed with the Feast Masters, Lisa and Elaine Derry, who added a special repartee to the program. Santa, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer also entertained the more than 400 people who were seated at tables on the main floor and balcony. The audience sampled a feast of desserts prepared by Bon Appetit during the intermission.

“This event was so enjoyable that people will want to make this musical extravaganza an annual event. It was a great experience for the singers, who not only sang with enthusiasm, but did the decorating and the clean up too,” said Sylvia Hunt (‘59)who performed.

Lee and Bonine share experiences with C of I students

Two alumni, Kwang-Sae Lee (‘56) and David Bonine (‘97) are giving back to The C of I, by talking to current students about their careers and life after college. Both served as guest lecturers during Homecoming – Dr. Lee to two philosophy classes, and David to one of Jasper LiCalzi’s political economy classes.

Lee is a professor at Kent State University and Bonine is the Foreign Policy Legislative Assistant to Senator Robert Byrd.

“Having alumni speak allows the students to get pertinent information from experts in the field who used to be sitting in the same place our current students are now,” said LiCalzi, who’s had three alumni guest lecturers this year. “Besides topical and substantive information, thealumni also talk about how they have gone from being a student at C of I to their currentpositions.”

The other alumni who spoke in LiCalizi’s class were Jon Evans (’01), who works for the Social Security Administration and Brad Brooks (’05) who works forThe Wilderness Society
