UI Gets in on April Fools with Furry Kittens

Benito Baeza

MOSCOW, Idaho (KTVB)– The University of Idaho got into the April Fools’ Day spirit, claiming a free kitten for all first year students. A page on their website says all incoming students will get more than just their Vandal Cards on their first day, they’ll also receive a kitten.

Calling the program the Feline-Undergraduate Relationship for Retention Initiative, or FURRI. The website says the program is the first of its kind. New UI President Chuck Staben says he is excited to implement FURRI alongside the existing slate of new-student support programs. “We seek to start our new students off strong at the University of Idaho,” Staben says.

“We have programs in place to ease the transition into university life, and the FURRI program provides a strong – and uniquely cute – complement to those programs.” However, scroll to the bottom of the page and you see, “Did you know Vandals have a fierce sense of humor? Have a very happy April Fools’ Day.”
