The Moscow campus feels re-energized after the holiday weekend. Summer just officially started, but students will be headed back to campus in less than a month!
The end of summer break means the nomination deadline for University of Idaho Alumni Association awards and recognition is also looming.
Honor fellow alumni for their distinction in leadership, volunteerism and university support by casting a thoughtful and thorough nomination. There are several categories to choose from, and all nominations are due Aug. 1. Learn more about the process.
Thanks for helping recognize the many accomplished and dedicated Vandals out there!

Vandal Snaps in History
The University of Idaho College of Education is busy relocating for an extensive renovation project
this summer. The building, shown here during construction in 1968, has a fraying exterior structure. The new building will expand classroom and lab spaces, encourage more collaboration and incorporate the most effective technologies.

A Job to Sink Her Teeth Into
Entry-level jobs can be pretty gruesome. For University of Idaho broadcast and digital media student Rhiannon Rickard, her summer internship doesn’t feel like a horror show — it is one.
Working as an assistant on Syfy Channel’s upcoming “Z Nation,” Rickard is getting a taste for what it takes to produce a television series about a group of people who set out on a cross-country trip to save America from flesh-eating zombies.
A Shift in Imagination
Chris Walker may own a 3D printing business, but the 2010 University of Idaho graduate doesn’t expect the emerging technology to make everyone want a printer of their own.
“They’re not for every living room,” he said. “Just like a large-format printer, just because you’ve used one once doesn’t mean you want to own one.”
For Walker, the success of 3D printing is about tapping into the community to make the technology accessible for everyone.
On the Move
University of Idaho Athletics is reuniting with two former conferences as the Vandals move forward into 2014 and beyond.
The football program rejoins the Sun Belt Conference, where the Vandals were one of the original football members when the league added the sport in 2001. Meanwhile, all other sports, except swimming and diving, once again will be members of the Big Sky Conference — a league the Vandals helped form 51 years ago.
