I love idaho state it has great academics and a great campus life. I love going to classes and spending time on campus when I can. There are plenty of opportunities to unite with fellow students and to engage in activities. They really encourage you to take part in all that you can while you are there and care about their students.
I love it here. I was an out-of-state student and ISU always made me feel welcome. I met some really great people, found some awesome activities to be a part of, and participated in recreation around campus. Idaho State has small class sizes with well-qualified professors and plenty of opportunities to study. Truly, they go the extra mile to make student life fun and exciting.
I really like Idaho State University because of the academics portion side. The classes that I have been in have been smaller allowing more interaction between student and teachers. If you have a problem or need help there is plenty of help between teachers and student tutors. The professors seem to care whether you pass and go on to your next class and try to make themselves more available for help.
Idaho state university is the best of both a small town and a big city. The campus is extremely safe; I have no fear walking alone at night. The class sizes are small enough for the professors to get to know the students. It is easy for all the students to achieve greatness here.

Administrative laws, these deal with decisions by ministers, public bodies and civil servents and how they can be challenged. Obligation, is the duty one is bound to perform or suffer for not performing. Be objective, independent of anyone's individual point of view. Test and prove often to show the long-term ownership of yourself.
I focused really hard on my grades in high school and didn't have much time for friends. I was married by the time I went to college so I didn't really associate much with my classmates there.
the only thing i dont like about this school is the weather. the weather here is so unpredictable, its rediculous. it hardly rains, its windy all the time and a very dry cold atmosphere.
Someone that can afford something better should attend a school in a larger town than Pocatello, Idaho.
the people and the faculty. everyone here is willing to help each other and study work and other activities. the faculty is very conserned with you as an individual and helping you any way they can. everything that you need is really close to campus. theres a huge variety of things for students to do. its an all around great learning enviroment.
The type of person that should attend Idaho State University should be a relax, calm, easy going person. If you don't care how things are run or how many problems you run into then ISU is that place for you. If you want to learn with good teachers then ISU is also the place to be because of the wonderful professors that are working at Idaho State University.
I like the academics of the school and the people at the school, but I dislike the location of the school.
Open minded value driven aspiring to use this institution as a spring board to a higher level.
I really liked the campus and how most of the buildings on campus are spread out but are still close together so that you can walk everywhere on campus, which is what i do. I am not sure what is so unique about my school, i really liked everything about the school and the minute i was on a tour of the campus i knew that this was the school for me to go to. I love attending ISU and would never choose another school to go too.
Seriously what I wish I would have known is that ISU is really after the dollar. Advisors tell you anything you want to hear to get you to enroll and stay enrolled. Then they keep encouraging you to apply to a program, only to find out that because you don't work at a certain facility you aren't going to get into their program. Now you've spent all types of money, and that's why I'm transferring to a junior college and will get my BSN at a totally differen school.
I think the most frustrating and unavoidable thing about my school is the financial situation. Having to cut classes in order to stay afloat and raising the tuition is unavoidable but still quite frustrating. Other than that, everything else here seems great!
It is known for its determination to make everyone welcome.
ISU is not small but is not too big either.. You get to meet a lot of people along the way but at the same time you it is easy to be in a small group of close friends. This school is very good academically level, all teachers are really engaged in your personal development as a person and as a professional, but that is not it. It's installations for sports are very nice and in very good state. It is located in Pocatello, Idaho, close to many places you can visit like lava hot springs, Salt lake, Idaho falls, Boise etc.
There are so many classes that differ in their type of teaching. There are some classes with a big number of students (around 80) or some other classes that are about 25 students per room. However you will always be sure that no matter what the number of students is, the teacher will always be interested on helping with any question or problems you can have. They will always be available during their office hours or you can always catch them after class.
My major is nutrition and dietetics, and I am really happy with the academic level of ISU, it is a great way to start my undergraduate degree.
I think that the stereotypes of students at my school is conservatives. The people that 'seem' to go to Idaho State University are usually from rural areas of surrounding states, disregarding some students of athletics and possibly academics, overall the stereotype is majority conservative. I don't think that this stereotype is accurate. I know that for one it doesn't apply to me, or many other students' that I know. I believe the overall array of students is simply just students. People who are trying to further their education and better their lives. Stereotypes should'nt play a role in students' lives. The student's reasoning for wanting a education should be all that matters.
The most popular groups are some of the international groups like Japanese club, Nepalese club, etc. People usually lock their door rooms when they leave but in case you forget to lock it there will be no problem at all. it has happened to me and it is a really safe place so there is no chance to get stolen. Volleyball, Football and Basketball games are huge, a lot of people are involved and really like to go and support our bengals.
people usually party on weekends. But if you do not like it you can always go out with some friends and have a really nice dinner at any close restaurant from campus. I usually hang put with my teammates.
The Mass Communication Department is the best in the state of Idaho. And the school is very affordable. I am going to graduate with very little loans thanks to Pell Grants and Scholarships.
Don't get me wrong, they are challenging, but they don't stress you in into the emergency room. I have great professors and they try hard to keep the information up to date and interesting. They love the subject matter and they want to pass that on to us. The professors are always available to help you and if they aren't other professors want to know because ISU wants each student to suceed.
Sometimes students feel like they get overloaded but we have access to career counseling, personal counseling, academic advising and health services right there on campus. These people are amazing and they are there to help you.
I am not part of the Greek scene at ISU. However, I wanted to compliment the female Greek scene, Alpha Xi Delta and Sigma Sigma Sigma, at ISU for a few reasons. I feel like some schools Greek organizations are all about partying and being very exclusive. From the interviews (for news articles) I've done, I feel like this group of students is very open and inclusive. They also have big hearts and always seem to be doing something charitable. They always have a philanthropy event each year.
I will never forget marching through the arches. An activity that freshman do and seniors as they graduate. It symbolizes taking the step to a new chapter of your life and walking back through symbolizes the accomplishments made.
