On November 30, 1990, Boise philanthropist Velma Morrison pressed a button to personally sound the chimes on a new landmark for The College of Idaho’s quadrangle — the Velma Morrison Centennial Clock Tower, where students still meet and pass by on a regular basis.
The long, hot summer is coming to an end on The College of Idaho’s campus. In a matter of days, new students from all over the world will pour into the Morrison Quadrangle, ready to take their first steps as the Class of 2021. But before they get to work in the classroom, the first-year students will enjoy the traditional festivities of Welcome Week.
The college student. They sit in class, eat top ramen and manage to go through four years of consistent sleep deprivation, walking around campus like zombies. At least, that is what some people believe.
But college students might get more sleep and be more active than perception would indicate—at least students at The College of Idaho.
