Kudos to Summit
I enjoyed reading this past edition (Fall 2005) of
The layout and design as well as the content have certainly improved over the
last few years. Kudos to the editor and art and production staff.
I love BYU–Idaho. Like many former graduates, I have fond
memories of Ricks College. There is not another school like it
(no matter what anyone says) in the world. It’s entirely unique.
Keep up the good work!
Eyes on the Temple
Thank you so much for the installation of the camera where we
can watch the building of the Rexburg Temple. To see the walls
rising ever higher, despite the mounting snow, is such a sweet
experience. We have never had an experience quite like this and
look forward on a daily basis to the changes the workers are
making so the temple can bless lives soon.

Thank you for providing this! It
helps me to still feel connected to that important chapter of my
life. I look forward to returning to visit.
Editor: You are important to us and always welcome.
Opportunities for reunions and visits during Spirit Week are in
Alumni News on page 34.
I am so far from BYU–Idaho in miles and years, my interest is
more in the facility. I would like a place to see a map of
campus so when a building is talked about I can see where it is.
Editor: We listened. The “Campus Revisited” article on page 28
is for you.
I loved my Ricks College experience and love reading anything
which helps me remember the Ricks/BYU–Idaho I knew. Especially
for Ricks College graduates, in addition to marveling over the
growth, we would appreciate some write-ups on what hasn’t
changed from the Ricks College that we knew.
Editor: Students still foster the nurturing environment. See
As someone distant from the campus, I enjoy obtaining a feel of
the current school—academic programs, profiles of student
enrollment, and projected changes.
Editor: You’ll enjoy the ongoing “Rethinking Education” series
on page 24.
Most graduates have left the Idaho area. How can Ricks
College/BYU–I reach out to include them? Alumni
organizations/networking? We still have a lot to offer students.
Could alumni mentor students in common professional fields? I
would be glad to work with a current student.
Editor: Our students need you. See the call for Alumni
Ambassadors and mentors on pages 33 and 34.
