The Summer Solstice is nearly upon us and the Whittenberger Planetarium is celebrating with its June public show, set for 7 p.m. Thursday, June 20 inside Boone Science Hall on The College of Idaho campus in Caldwell.

Coyote Reunion set for June 27-29 on campus

Football is officially back at The College of Idaho, and it’s time to celebrate! All C of I alumni and friends – including former football players and student-athletes from all Coyote teams – are invited to join us June 27-29 as the College hosts the Coyote Reunion celebrating the return of football as well as the soon-to-be-built Athletics and Outdoor Education Center.

Writing and Readings

We’re in the midst of dead week, and the temperatures are now in the perfect range to induce lethargy. Unfortunately, the library is the place to be instead, and all my regular study spots are being stolen by last-minute paper-writers. Alas and alack.

The Calm Before Spring Fling

It’s Friday night, and I’m staying in my room. Right now, I’m getting ready to watch some Netflix, and my biggest decision is whether to honor my Money and Literature class by watching the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby, or whether to do homage to my Brontës class, and watch Jane Eyre. I’ve read both books within the last month, (ok, April, not May) but I just finished up a big fat paper on Jane Eyre, so I might have to go for The Great Gatsby.

Whittenberger Planetarium hosts May public show

Asteroids are the topic of discussion this month at The College of Idaho’s Whittenberger Planetarium. Come learn about these extraterrestrial objects that reside in our solar system and sometimes collide with other solar system residents during the Planetarium’s public show, beginning at 7 p.m. May 8 inside Boone Science Hall on the C of I campus in Caldwell. The show will feature both the asteroid belt and near-Earth asteroids and also will include a tour of the constellations and planets visible in the Idaho night sky this month.    

Busy Bees

I think the number of school days left is inversely proportional to the number of events happening. With only three weekends remaining, everyone and everything is getting crammed in. Here’s a breakdown of this weekend:

Friday

Spring Discovery Day: This is for juniors and sophomores in high school to get their first introduction to C of I. There are roughly 160 visitors to the College today, and the ambassadors and admission staff are out in full force.

Mr. CASAnova

C of I is known far and wide for having intelligent and multi-talented students, but did you know that Yotes are extrordinarily good-looking as well?

Mr. CASAnova is a man-pageant, which showcases the dashing good looks you see around campus. Ten extremely talented men shed their inhibitions (and the occassional shirt) to raise money for a great and very worthy cause, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). They dressed as sea creatures, they danced, they rapped, they played guitar, piano, and slammed some poetry. They really put themselves on display.

C of I to celebrate student research and scholarship

From the impact of land management practices on biodiversity to the unveiling of a strategy game for Android smartphones, the wide-ranging scholarly and creative work of College of Idaho students will be on display during the 8th annual Student Research Conference on Saturday, April 27.
