In June of 1965...
The newly appointed CSI Board of Trustees indicates that a three member site survey team would make an intensive study of the geographical area for the purpose of making a recommendation to the Board on a campus site.

TransportActive Transportation Week
Active Transportation Week at CSI
PEDESTRIANS always have the right of wayPedestrians and bicyclists, please be extra careful these fall mornings as low sunlight conditions can make it harder for motorists to see you.
BICYCLISTS have all the rights and the duties as a motorized driver except to note the following (and some of these WILL surprise you):
  1. No bicycle may be used to carry more than one person at a time unless so designed or equipped.
  2. Any adult rider may carry a child securely attached to his/her person in a backpack or sling OR in a child carrier attached to the bicycle. 
  3. Bicyclists shall always ride as close to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway as practical except to turn or avoid road conditions or hazards or if they are on a one-way street, and then they may also ride along the left curb or edge in the same manner.
  4. Persons riding bicycles upon a highway shall not ride more than two abreast except on special paths or parts of highway set aside for the exclusive use of a bike.
  5. PAY ATTENTION HERE because a stop light means the same as a stop sign, and a stop sign means yield.  Seasoned bicyclists may know and follow these legal behaviors, so please be aware!  This is how it works:
    1. Bicyclists approaching a stop light shall stop before entering the intersection and yield to other traffic, after which they may proceed through the steady red light with caution.
    2. Bicyclists approaching a stop sign shall slow down or stop as required for safety and (after yielding the right-of-way to any vehicle in the intersection) may cautiously turn or proceed through without stopping.
    3. Bicycles are not prohibited from riding on CSI sidewalks and they are allowed to ride on any sidewalk that is at least 6 feet wide within the city, but must yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian and shall give an audible signal before overtaking and passing either a pedestrian or another biker.  Suggestions include: "BIKE," "Passing," "Behind you," or "Passing to your left."  (Please do always pass to the left just as you would in a motorized vehicle.)
    4. Bicycle racing is prohibited.
    5. Light emitting devices, attached either to the front of the bicycle or the rider, and rear bicycle reflectors must be visible from a distance of at least 500 feet from sunset to sunrise and other times when sufficient light for clear visibility does not exist.
    6. Always yield to road work and any highway construction or maintenance area.
MOTORISTS shall follow the 20 MPH speed limit (or less as is prudent) while yielding both to pedestrians and bicyclists at all times.
Finally, bicycle and motorcycle commuters and passengers are encouraged
to wear proper helmets at all times both on and off campus. Your safety is important to us!

SkiAnnual Ski Swap
With much regret it has been announced that the annual CSI Ski Swap that's normally held around Thanksgiving time will not occur this year. The CSI Business Club, which took the event over from the CSI Ski Club several years ago, has had difficulties scheduling a venue large enough to support the event's traditional transactions.

StrategicStrategic Plan Survey
The College of Southern Idaho is seeking your input as we develop a new strategic plan for the institution. Your answers to the questions in this survey will help guide the process of establishing strategic priorities at the college from 2016 through 2020 and beyond.
The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete. Your participation is voluntary and your answers will be kept completely anonymous.* 
A compilation of survey results will be shared on the CSI website once the survey is complete.
The survey will remain open through Friday, October 9
You can access the survey at this link: 
A number of business and community groups have graciously agreed to help us distribute this survey. Because we are a small community and because many of you are involved in multiple groups, you may receive this invitation to participate more than one time.  If that is the case, please complete the survey one time and disregard additional invitations. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the College of Southern Idaho Office of Institutional Effectiveness at cbragg@csi.edu or 208-732-6775.  Thank you for your participation in this important project!
* The right to inspect and to receive a copy of public records at all reasonable times is absolute unless the record is exempt form disclosure by law. Survey results are public records. However, survey data is collected anonymously so comments cannot be attributed to any specific individual.

TheaterCSI Theater Department

CSI Theater Department presents

October 7-10 & 14-17, at 7:30 pm 
CSI Fine Arts Theater 

"Acting: The First Six Lessons", a dramatization by Beau Bridges and his daughter, Emily, is based on a classic text on the art and craft of the thespian. Written by Richard Boleslavsky, in 1933, the Boleslavsky handbook gained the understated admiration of the knights of the British Theatre, however; it also caught on among the budding method actors in America. After all, Boleslavsky's "Lessons" number only six-concentration, memory-of-emotions, dramatic action, characterization, observation, and rhythm-and take place as a series of dialogues between The Teacher and The Creature. The former is a guru in the orthodoxy of acting. The latter is a lovely and callow aspirant to the art form. Through their Socratic interchanges and theatrical incantations, we see the slow-moving headway being made by The Creature toward the artist she shall become. 

Tickets: $8/adults, $6/seniors or students and free for CSI students.

CancerBreast Cancer Screening

Breast Cancer Screening Reminder
Women are urged to get regular breast exams and mammograms! They should also make healthy lifestyle choices such as eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity, and reducing alcohol, if a woman drinks. These choices can help reduce their breast cancer risk. The American Cancer Society also encourages regular breast exams and mammograms to find breast cancer early, when it is most likely to be curable. A screening reminder, to remind you to get your breast exam and mammogram, is a free, easy way to help busy women remember to take care of themselves.

WorkWorld of Work Cultures
What Work Cultures Around The World Can Teach Us About Leadership  
What do Ikea and Volvo have in common? Aside from both companies hailing from Sweden, they share the Scandinavian tradition of Janteloven, or the Law of Jante: a series of rules that, in essence, command self-effacement and humility. In much of Scandinavian society, including the business culture, it's anathema to be a loudmouth or big self-promoter. And some argue that this mindset is an engine of their business success.
An article in the International Business Times noted: "Perhaps unsurprisingly, global companies based in Sweden tend to be painted in 50 shades of Jante. For example, Ikea and H&M respectively offer simple furniture and clothing for 'the people' at cheap prices that remain in line with the ethos of attractive ordinariness. [Yet] both companies are huge capitalist success stories."
This may come as a surprise to those who work in the States, where being loud and making yourself known around the office is considered the norm. And it's not only in northern Europe where an introverted professional may feel at home.
