C of I set for Homecoming Weekend Oct. 6-9

Don your purple and join The College of Idaho for Homecoming 2016!

Alumni and the entire YoteFam community will converge on the C of I campus for the annual festivities Oct. 6-9. This year’s events will celebrate the Business and Accounting Department, with the theme Taking Care of Business.

“We’re so excited to invite our alumni back to campus for what will be an exciting, fun-packed week,” said Sally Skinner ’78, director of Alumni and Parent Relations. “From the football game and the Distinguished Alumni Awards Celebration to class visits and more, we look forward to reconnecting and rekindling the memories that made our college years such a special time.”

During the week, alumni will have the chance to visit a class, have dinner in the Quad, enjoy wine and cider tastings from alumni wineries, see plans/construction on the new Cruzen-Murray Library, attend mini-lectures in the business department, and cheer the Yotes on to victory!
