When fire season, back-to-school collide…

It's nothing new for the University of Idaho to have some students arrive late for school in the fall because it's still fire season, and they're off fighting wildfires - 11 students delayed their return to classes last year for that reason. With classes starting Aug. 24, the UI announced today that student firefighters have options there. "We are supportive of their efforts, and encourage the student firefighters, or a family member, to contact us so we know they do plan on returning," said Nancy Krogh, UI registrar. The firefighting students can either start late, or if they decide not to return for the semester, their tuition and fees are refunded. For more information, call (208) 885-6731.
