Dear University of Idaho Alumni and Friends:
There is always opportunity for alumni to connect with and assist future Vandals. In March, we invite you to visit with interested students and parents during four Meet the Vandals events at various locations in the West. These events are great opportunities to teach our youth about all the opportunities the university has to offer.
And don’t forget this year's Vandal Fridays March 22 and April 5. Admitted students can register online now. The Office of Alumni Relations will be looking for volunteers to call prospective students to encourage them to attend one of the Vandal Fridays on campus. More details will soon be out on how you can help us recruit another fine class of future Idaho students.
