The University of Idaho is embracing Pokemania when students head back to Moscow this fall!

According to KTVB, the Vandals are offering a class this fall called "Pop Culture Games" in the "physical activity" section of it's course catalog.

According to the course instructor, the course focuses on getting college students to lead an active lifestyle, work in teams and discover new things about the community they are living in.  With heavy course loads, internship opportunities and extracurriculars it's easy for college students to shy away from organized exercise.  He hopes that integrating a nationwide phenomena into the class will encourage them to get outside, get moving and make new friends!
