Off-Campus: In Moscow, the place to hang-out is the Palouse Empire Mall. Offering food, clothes and movies, the mall has everything that a Vandal would need. Students can always be found at the various coffee shops and restaurants around town, especially Branegan's, Shooter McGee's and Gambino's Italian Restaurant.
On-Campus: The Idaho Commons Student Union is the primary place to hang out on campus. This facility houses the food court, which serves everything from fast food to full meals, a market place, the campus bookstore, an art gallery, and two coffee shops. Students gather at Common Ground and Joe's Cafe to hear the buzz -- and get a caffeine buzz.
September is filled with sporting events for all of the Vandal athletic teams, including the battle of the gridiron between the Vandals and the Cougars on Sept. 7 at 2 pm at Martin Stadium in Pullman. Dad's Weekend is September 20-22.
