U Idaho senior experiences college on campus and across the world - Erin Bamer, the Argonaut

Like some people know they want to be a police officer or an astronaut, University of Idaho Senior Edwin Latrell has known he was going to serve in the military since before he can remember. “I have known since I was little that I would do the military,” Latrell said. “There was not a doubt.” Latrell enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 2004, two years after he started his education at UI. He said he lacked energy and enthusiasm for school when he first enrolled at the university and ended up dropping out of many of his classes. “I was the best student at not being the best student,” Latrell said. While he was enlisted, Latrell remained a student at UI and completed 40 courses online in seven different countries including Afghanistan, Iraq and Cuba.
