The president of the College of Idaho announced Thursday she’s stepping down from her leadership role. The departure comes as a surprise.

Charlotte Borst has filled the top job at the Caldwell college since being appointed two years ago. She was the 13th president of the liberal arts school.

 

A northern Idaho man who carried a concealed weapon into a dormitory at Lewis-Clark State College is facing charges.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that 19-year-old Wesley S. Bowler of Harpster is charged with carrying a concealed weapon without permit.

Bowler, who is not a student, was taken into custody at the dormitory on Wednesday and police seized a Kel-Tec P-11 pistol with a loaded magazine.

Bowler was taken to the Nez Perce County Jail and released after paying $300 of his bond amount.

Idaho’s Lewis-Clark State College announced Monday it will stop charging an application fee for students sending in the paper form and drop the online application fee to $5.25.

The Lewiston school was already the application-fee bargain for Idaho’s four-year state schools at $35.

Idaho public university students can expect a higher price tag on their tuition bills next fall.

The state Board of Education voted Wednesday to hike tuition at all four public universities — though not all university presidents got exactly what they requested.

Trustees approved a 6.9 percent hike at Boise State University and increases between 4 and 5 percent for the University of Idaho, Idaho State University and Lewis-Clark State College.
