The College of Idaho’s award-winning thrice-yearly alumni magazine Quest is hot off the press with its Summer 2018 issue, now available to read for free online on the College’s website.

Returning with its first summer issue since 2016, the Summer 2018 edition of Quest features 28 pages of news covering current C of I students, alumni, staff and faculty, including several features centered around the issue’s theme: Legacy.

“Stories like these are the fabric that binds the C of I’s past to its present,” wrote C of I co-presidents Doug Brigham and Jim Everett in the magazine’s opening pages. “We all share the responsibility to extend the legacy of this great school into the future.”

Many of the features included in this issue directly address the theme of Legacy, whether carrying on long lasting personal legacies (like the Phelps sisters, Megan and Julia, who are each contributing to a family legacy of work in the medical and social work fields) or evolving existing legacies into new ones (like this issue’s cover story, which profiles the literally growing legacies of the Fujishin family, all of whom have made careers from agriculture).

Among the issue’s other features include profiles for each of our Distinguished Alumni Award winners, the introduction of new basketball coaches for both the men’s and women’s teams, reflections on personal legacies from staff member Alan Price ’10 and C of I biology professor Dr. Ann Koga, and a collection of updates from alumni around the country.

C of I alumni can expect to receive their physical copies of Quest in the mail in the coming days, but the full issue is available online for free at Quest Magazine’s page at, which also includes access to “Quest Extra” features — additional materials for featured stories exclusive to C of I’s website. The physical issue will also be available for free on the College’s newsstands by next week.

If you have any story suggestions for the next issue of Quest, please send a message to [email protected].

The College of Idaho has a 127-year-old legacy of excellence. The C of I is known for its outstanding academic programs, winning athletics tradition and history of producing successful graduates, including seven Rhodes Scholars, three governors, and countless business leaders and innovators. Its distinctive PEAK Curriculum challenges students to attain competency in the four knowledge peaks of humanities, natural sciences, social sciences and a professional field—empowering them to earn a major and three minors in four years. The College’s close-knit, residential campus is located in Caldwell, where its proximity both to Boise and to the world-class outdoor activities of southwest Idaho’s mountains and rivers offers unique opportunities for learning beyond the classroom.  For more information, visit
