The new Coyote will be introduced to the campus community and the public during “The C of I Coyote Celebration,” set for 4:30 p.m. on the J.A. Albertson Activities Center lawn. The tailgate-style event will include BBQ food, apparel featuring the new logo, activities for children, visits from other Treasure Valley mascots and more. It precedes the C of I volleyball home opener at 7 p.m.
