Resident assistant. Cross-country runner. Swimmer. International Student Organization member. College of Idaho junior Emily Hawgood wears many hats across campus. And this month, Hawgood’s reputation as a community member who will go the extra mile (or extra 140.6 miles when completing an Ironman triathlon race) earned her C of I Student Affairs Leadership, Integrity and Service Award winner.
The College of Idaho is known both for its diversity and active student involvement, with more than 40 organized clubs on campus. New clubs are formed every year, and this fall, the C of I welcomed its newest—and possibly most unique—organization, the Arabic-Hebrew Club.
Jef Petersen ’04 is bringing his new play, An Elaborate System of Ropes and Pulleys, to the Langroise Center Studio Theatre at 7 p.m. for one performance. The show is free but a small donation, if you’re able, to help cover some of the travel expenses for the troupe, is appreciated.
At The College of Idaho, more than one-third of the student population participates in varsity athletics, while nearly 10 percent of students are international. And, on occasion, these two distinctive C of I populations intersect.
Such is the case this year on the Coyote men’s soccer team, where international players Joao Cardoso (Brazil) and Zuva Donduro (Mozambique) contributed both on the field and culturally for the Cascade Conference tournament qualifiers.
From the Nov. 16, 1916 issue of the Coyote comes insight into life inside the trenches of the Great War from Andrew Bennett Thompson, who attended the C of I from 1914-1915. The son of Rev. and Mrs. Charles Thompson, Andrew was born in Hwangyen, a province of Chekiang, China while his parents were missionaries. He enlisted with the 72nd Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in Vancouver in September 1915, and crossed to England with that unit in April of the following year.

They walk among us, blending into the daily parade of people through Morrison Quadrangle. At first glance, they look like any other student. But their military service is what allows The College of Idaho community—and our entire nation—to enjoy our daily freedoms.
For Army veterans Matthew McCauley, Wes Dockstader and Pamela Dockstader, joining the military helped shape and provide guidance for their lives. It also opened the door to higher education and the chance to study at Idaho’s best college.
“Paint the City of Caldwell Purple,” C of I athletic director Marty Holly said. And thanks to the efforts of the Caldwell Chamber of Commerce along with C of I athletics, “Go Purple” became a reality this fall with local businesses offering special deals to those sporting purple clothing on Fridays before C of I home football games.
And as the football season comes to a close this weekend, the C of I wants to encourage the community to ‘Go Purple’ as Yotes basketball enters another exciting season in the J.A. Albertson Activities Center.
Does the cooler weather have you itching to strap on your skis or snowboard? Then join The College of Idaho ski program as it partners with the Bogus Basin Ski Club to show the latest Warren Miller ski film, Chasing Shadows, which premieres at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12 at the Egyptian Theatre in downtown Boise.
At The College of Idaho, students aren’t only mentored to be well-rounded individuals. They’re also prepared to become valued members of society and the local community. And sometimes that includes helping out beyond the campus community.
This fall, several C of I students and staff helped out at the Huntington’s Disease Society of America Team Hope Walk at Veterans Memorial Park in Boise, helping the society put on a successful event that raised more than $15,000.
