John Rember: Examining the American West

Join former College of Idaho professor and current writer-at-large John Rember as he reads “Reconstructing a Landscape of Hope” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, in the Sterry Hall third-floor board room. The reading examines the religious, literary and psychological roles of wilderness in the contemporary American West.

Rember also will look at Wallace Stegner's youthful description of the West as a “geography of hope” and Stegner’s late-life admission that the West was no longer a place of hope for him.

C of I readies for annual Cultural Show

The College of Idaho student body is as diverse as the crops grown in Canyon County. With 81 international students representing 46 countries—including Norway, Venezuela, Swaziland, and Barbados—the C of I is home to a surprisingly robust international population.

And on Nov. 13, the international students will share their talents and cultures with the community as the C of I presents its fourth annual International Student Organization Cultural Show at 7 p.m. inside Jewett Auditorium on the C of I campus in Caldwell. The show is free and open to the public.

C of I set for Nov. 10 Veterans Celebration

The Great War that scourged Europe was officially ended when the last signature adorned the Treaty of Versailles in June 1919. But an armistice on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 is what is regarded as the conclusion of the “war to end all wars.” 

C of I presents Five Women Wearing the Same Dress

The College of Idaho Theatre Department is pleased to announce its fall production Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, a mischievous, dark comedy by famed writer Alan Ball.

Tickets cost $15 for adults and $10 for seniors (65+) and non-C-of-I students. For tickets and information, call the Langroise Box Office at (208) 459-5426.

'Road Stories' exhibit explores the road trip of life

A road trip is a journey. We travel, riding in an automobile with family, friends or alone, and our experience is as much a function of the plan as it is of the unknown. That journey is explored through “Road Stories,” the newest exhibit at The College of Idaho’s Rosenthal Gallery of Art.

The exhibit, on display through Dec. 4, is a mixed media installation that invites the viewer to participate in a journey that takes place from behind the wheel and within the gallery. An artists’ talk and reception is scheduled at 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 14.
