Join President Nellis, Athletics Director Rob Spear, Coach Robb Akey and others – including the Sound of Idaho marching band – to kick off Vandal Spirit Fridays with gusto.

The kickoff celebration is on Friday, Aug. 26, from 5:30-7 p.m., and marks the start of Vandal Spirit Fridays for the new academic and athletic year. The event will take place at the Palouse Empire Mall, 1850 W. Pullman Road, in Moscow.

"Every Vandal Spirit Friday is a time for members of the University of Idaho community – in Moscow and elsewhere – to celebrate being part of this great University,” says Nick Popplewell, director of athletics marketing.

Vandal pride can be displayed each Friday in a variety of ways, ranging from wearing the university’s colors or branded clothing to sipping that great cup of joe from a University of Idaho coffee mug.

ASUI President Samantha Perez and Joe Vandal join the festivities as well. Kids young and old will be able to interact and play games with Vandal student-athletes and coaches. Refreshments from area merchants will be available for purchase.

The VandalStore will be on hand at the event, with Vandal merchandise available for purchase onsite. Vandal gear is also available at the VandalStore in Boise, 821 W. Idaho St., and online at vandalstore.com. 

The Moscow Chamber of Commerce, Palouse Empire Mall and other local businesses are supporting the Moscow kickoff event.
