About Us

We are a group of professional and student staff that love working with students; we have a few masters’ degrees to prove it! We put our hearts into enhancing your college experience and helping you find that spark that ignites your motivation to change the world.

We are easily excited…and sometimes we’re awkward, but we own it. We occasionally break into song; we love impromptu dance parties, and quiz each other on the periodic table while watching Nat Geo.

“There’s nothing to do in Moscow,” you say, to that we reply “Nay! There’s TONS to do, just ask us.

You are at the heart of what we do, come join our involvement family through the Center for Volunteerism and Social Action, Student Organizations, Student Media, Leadership Programs & Associated Students University of Idaho (student government).
