Maddy Kelly worked together with fellow business students Nosipho Dube, Clayton Kreps, Emily Hamilton and Michael Hazen since November 2017 to prepare a thorough stock valuation on Idaho-based potato company Lamb Weston. The C of I group competed against four other Idaho schools for the opportunity to move forward from the local level to the regional and national levels.
Mali Sawyer was one of 130 C of I students who visited the expo on Feb. 27, which hosted 26 local businesses and organizations covering a gamut of professions appealing to majors across each PEAK, from software engineering to local theatre. It was the second such expo at the C of I this school year organized by the C of I PEAK Center, which is becoming increasingly popular with both students and employers alike — this spring’s expo saw a 52 percent increase in student attendance, and enough companies showed interest that some needed to be placed on a waiting list for next fall’s expo.

Former President of TitleOne Corporation Doug Brigham and the former CEO of the Treasure Valley YMCA Jim Everett have been selected as the Presidents of The College of Idaho. The appointment was finalized by a unanimous Board of Trustees vote of approval on Friday, Feb. 23.
In October of 2010, former College of Idaho Board of Trustees member Debbie Cruzen-Murray affixed C of I President Marv Henberg with a hard stare following a dinner in her native California. Then, just as her father Edward Cruzen had done business decades prior, she gave Henberg a nod of her head, holding out her hand for him to shake.
“Marv, let’s do this,” Henberg recalled Cruzen-Murray saying that night.
This summer, a group of student researchers and faculty members from The College of Idaho will embark on a three-week trip to the Thailand-Myanmar border to document the experiences of Dara’ang refugees in the area — a trip financed by a competitive $35,000 ASIANetwork-Freeman Student-Faculty Fellows Grant.
Fifty-one years ago, Bill and Mary Clark were both students at The College of Idaho. It was that year the N.L. Terteling Library first opened and students formed a human chain cutting across campus to move books from the Strahorn Library to their new home.
As it turned out, neither student had been able to attend the first Book Brigade, which moved 70,000 books across campus. But on Feb. 15, 2018, the married couple were on campus to participate in the second Book Brigade, joining over one hundred students, staff, faculty and alumni from the C of I to form yet another chain, this time delivering the final 1,000 books to the Cruzen-Murray Library that opened on Jan. 31.
After College of Idaho history professor Dr. Mark Smith transitioned from his ten-year role as the College’s vice president of academic affairs back to his position as a full-time faculty member, he knew he wanted to jump into a new research program combining his expertise in ancient Roman history and archaeology. His choice in research at that time has ultimately led to the publication of his new book, “The Final Days of Jesus: The Thrill of Defeat, The Agony of Victory: A Classical Historian Explores Jesus’s Arrest, Trial, and Execution,” which examines the trial and death of Jesus Christ in the historical context and culture of the Roman Empire.
The College of Idaho will once again offer the campus community a night at the opera at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 16-17 in the Langroise Recital Hall with “An American Opera Showcase,” an event produced by the C of I music department which will feature scenes from seven iconic American operas performed by a cast of 11 talented student musicians.
