It's a teaching-intensive 3-1-3 institution on the outskirts of Boise, which (IMO) is a lovely part of the country.  I don't know much about the school, however.  Any word on the place?

I was runner-up for a job there years ago.  The folks I met at the interview were great, and I got a good vibe from the place.  A colleague of mine from grad school went there as an undergrad, and loved it.

Wow, this is a new one for me.  I didn't know of any private schools in Idaho.

One of their students was just named as a Rhodes scholar.

Positively impactful on stakeholder synergies

I'm pretty decent friends with the new provost, who's a good guy and has a broad view of faculty work at a SLAC.  I also know their former VP for enrollment pretty well.  It sounds to me like a nice place to be.

(For those who are mystified:  It started out as The College of Idaho, turned for awhile into Albertson College--named after the grocery store people--and then went back to the College of Idaho.)
