In Case You Missed It: April Fools!

University of Idaho April Fools' Day joke recognized across the Web

For one special day, the University of Idaho announced a new innovative approach to help first-year students adjust to college life: Kittens!

Remember when students used to get a Vandal Card and student planner upon admission? UI claimed big changes this fall, with each student being issued a furry friend. There were many "styles" to choose from, and delivery options were available through the VandalStore.

The April Fools' Day joke spread online and via social media throughout the day.
The Spokesman Review picked up on the joke, along with KTVB, Buzzfeed and King 5.

April 1 is over, but not the fun! Have a Vandal pet of your very own? Show them off on Facebook before April 4.

Plan. Adapt.
