C of I’s Theta Psi chapter of Delta Tau Delta—whose members are known around campus as “Delts”—recently was ranked as one of the top-ten Delt chapters in the nation for its 2014 work.

NYC of I: Students give back in the Big Apple

The temperature hung around 25 degrees as Zoe Roberts and two other College of Idaho students stood for 12 hours in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, smashed like the cream filling in an Oreo. They had no food. They had no water. They couldn’t leave to go to the bathroom. 

Survival mode kicked in.

C of I students launch Smash Bros. Nintendo club

On his second day in Northern Ireland, Lucas Morse found himself in a pub sipping on a dark pint of Guinness, standing alone, looking out of place.

“The one guy looked like someone bit one of his ears off,” Morse said.

The conversation eventually turned to politics, and the boxers asked Morse his opinion on Margaret Thatcher, the controversial former prime minister of the United Kingdom. He tried to answer in the most neutral way possible. Tried to.
