IEDid You Know?

Did you know that CSI's first-time, full-time retention rate for degree seeking students is 60%, which is almost identical to our peer group's retention rate of 61%?  However our first-time, part-time retention rate is only 32%, lagging behind that same peer group's rate of 39%.

NHDNational History Day - Regional Competition Needs Judges

National History Day in Idaho is an exciting way to engage students in history. The program pulls students out of the classroom and into the world of the professional historian. Students track down information about historic people and events by exploring archives, libraries, and other resources. The program culminates at the national competition held each June at the University of Maryland at College Park. This year's theme, Conflict & Compromise in History, requires you to view history through multiple perspectives. 

When: March 3, 2018 (Saturday)

Time commitment: 4-5 hours (breakfast, lunch and gift of thanks will be provided)

Why do it? Judging is an interesting way to connect with students, support your community, and learn about history! Come and be inspired by Idaho students!

History Day judges review entries in a specific category, interview students, provide constructive feedback, and determine which students advance to the next level of competition.

Broadway performers Michelle Knight and Patrick Ryan Sullivan, accompanied by a four-piece orchestra, will perform classics from Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Kern, Jerry Herman, Richard Rodgers, Frank Loesser, Kander & Ebb, and George Gershwin. The musical gems include "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "Don't Rain on My Parade," and "I Could Have Danced All Night".

MICHELLE KNIGHT - Michelle is an Orlando native and UCF grad. After being on Broadway with Jersey Boys, Michelle premiered and starred in the off Broadway musical Disenchanted (Lucille Lortel award Nominee-Lead Actress). Other credits include national tours of Grease(Rizzo) and the 30th anniversary tour of Annie.

PATRICK RYAN SULLIVAN - Patrick had the privilege of remounting the Jerry Orbach role in the National Tour of 42nd Street the Musical. Mark Bramble, the author of the show, was quoted as saying, "I have never seen a better Julian Marsh." Upon his recommendation and rave reviews across the country, Patrick was transferred to the Broadway show to take over for Tom Wopat (who had moved onto the lead in Chicago). In the Broadway company of TITANIC, Sullivan stood by for, and played three leads. Upon the closing he landed the role of Gaston in Broadway's Beauty and the Beast. He was the last Gaston to play the role at the incredible Palace Theatre in NYC and spent two years performing opposite Andre' McCardle (the original ANNIE), as Belle. He played Billy Flynn in the Macau, China company of CHICAGO, translated in three different languages. Patrick has performed in over 250 different productions, in 45 states and 9 countries. https://www.patrickryansullivan.org

CSI Theater Department presents: "Measure for Measure"
February 21 - 24 & February 28 - March 3
7:30 p.m.
CSI Fine Arts Theater

Once again, the plays of William Shakespeare give us insight and commentary on events in our own culture. Join the CSI Theater Department as we explore the roles of gender in our culture, and how they relate to mercy, hypocrisy, and the abuse of power. The city of Venice is one overrun by brothels and a loose set of morals. The Duke, unwilling to use his authority to institute change departs, leaving Angelo in charge. Angelo, initially reluctant, soon starts to reinstate older, harsher laws to force morality on the city and close the brothels. The changes highlight the hypocrisy of the ruling elite, and the temptation to abuse power. Tickets: $10/adults or $5/seniors or students. CSI students are free.
