Latest edition of ‘Quest’ hits mailboxes

The College of Idaho has published its fall 2016 issue of Quest magazine, which is hot off the press! Themed “Tradition,” the fall issue highlights the many traditions that have shaped C of I student life for 125 years, from Founding President William Judson Boone’s annual panoramic photographs to contemporary classics like the Finney Fun Run.

Stories featured in the new issue of Quest include an in-depth look at C of I traditions young and old, from the legendary haircutting battles of the 1920s to the treasured rituals of the annual Commencement ceremony. The magazine also features 100 years’ worth of memories made within Finney and Voorhees Halls; the exciting arrival of the new C of I marching band; a photo essay from Homecoming 2016; a look at the revamped C of I Outdoor Program; and a recap of a record-breaking season for football players Nate Moore and Marcus Lenhardt.
