New Class Plants Trees for Caldwell
The class of 2010 is digging into the year with a service project that will beautify Caldwell. The first-year students − accompanied by staff, faculty, and returning CofI students − will be planting trees along the Wilson Drainage and Indian Creek Saturday, September 9 from 10 a.m. - noon. The project is part of the College’s First Year Experience and is an opportunity for students to get to know other members of the campus and the greater Caldwell community. 'Our Mission states that we are a Liberal Arts College that embodies the values of leadership, community, integrity, and service. In a sense, our annual college community service project is a manifestation of all of these values,' Vice President for Academic Affairs Mark Smith said. 'To live our values with integrity, we need to do what we can to enrich the community in which we live.' If you would like to participate in the project, meet in the Griffith Park parking lot (located behind Subway, off of Blaine St. in Caldwell) at 9:50 a.m. on Saturday.

He was recently invited to share his work with other professionals during the Rocky Mountain European Scholars Conference held at Bringham Young University, in Salt Lake City, October 6-7. Angresano will present his paper entitled 'Why is Sweden's economy performing so favorably while that of France languishes?'

When Math Professor Mark Lotspeich isn’t teaching, he is baking. His culinary skill recently paid off at the Western Idaho Fair where his huckleberry bagels won a 3rd place ribbon.

Lotspeich displayed the winning bagel on a ceramic plate created by Art Professor Stephen Fisher and painted by Graphic Designer Aimee Czarniecki.
