Ivy League

The brick walls of North Idaho College's Kildow Hall and Christianson Gymnasium are genuinely ivy covered. An interesting tale is that Colonel John McFarland brought the first starts of ivy from his alma mater, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Col. McFarland taught languages at NIC for many years after receiving his BS from West Point and later (in 1963) his Masters from Gonzaga. The story goes that NIC faculty has continued to bring starts of ivy from other presigious universities throughout the years.
