Come mingle on Moscow's Main Street!
Thursday evening from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., the night before Vandal Friday, downtown Moscow will kick-off the evening with a warm welcome from the Mayor of Moscow and the President of the University of Idaho and open its doors and streets to you.
Join Moscow community members and UI sororities, fraternities, other current students, professors and staff in a relaxed setting before you begin an active day on campus Friday. Enjoy live music, warm food and many surprises as you connect with your future community.
See why Moscow has been named the #8 college town on Livability.com, #5 in Men’s Journal as one of the nation’s five best places to live in a college town, and the university is ranked in the top 30 in the nation as a "great university to hit the books and backcountry" by Outside magazine.
