Young men and women seeking a skill in technological arenas and furthering their education.
My classmates are a very diverse set of peers, a lot of different races, cliques and personalities.
Classs mates are typically very helpful and kind.
My classmates are willing to help other classmates, listen to other peoples idea, and are fun to be around.
All of the students that I have met have all been really nice and great connections!
Most students wear the typical jeans and coats to class or there is also lots of athletic wear, like everyone just left the gym. Everyone seems to interact with everyone and no one is very judgmental, I think it's all about how you treat each other - if you're nice to someone they'll be nice back, etc. The type of students, though, are so varied - young and older, lots of different ethnicity's, and a noticeable amount of different sexual orientation among students, single or married or engaged or students that have boy/girl friends, etc. - just a lot of variation and a lot of different kind of people to meet and talk to and learn from.
I am a student athlete, so I am always in sport clothes. However most of the people is not shallow at all regarding their way of dressing. If you want to dress really chick its fine but if you do not feel like getting ready that day, you will never feel uncomfortable about it. Most of the students are from Idaho, and most of them are mormons. But also they are very open minded about getting to know different cultures and accept them to be part of their society. i know it because I am Colombian and I have never had a problem regarding my race
Pocatello is a rather small college campus town, so the people here are very nice. When i first arrived i was worried that there would be class rivalries like in high school with the hazing of freshmen, but i was pleasantly surprised. People in classes are friendly and eager to talk to their neighbors and nobody really cares about age or nationality. There are many older adults in many of my classes coming back to further their education and it was so surprising to see that they treat me like a fellow classmate rather than a naive 18 year old who is young enough to be their daughter. Also I've met many international students and it's awesome to see how well they fit in so well with the student body. It's funny to hear their perspectives on Americans and the college lifestyle.
My classmates are both bright and open to a whole new world of ideas and cultures
Overall, the students here are friendly. My first year here I always felt like I could ask for directions to places on campus and anyone was always willing to answer. I have made some lifelong friends at ISU as well. There is a pretty diverse set of individuals here--everyone is bounds to find someone to connect with and enjoy the college years with.
Another great bonus is that ISU attracts a lot of foreign exchange students. This is due to our International Programs Office. They send recruiters around the world. There are over 400 international students here--bringing a wealth of cultural knowledge to our campus. Saudi Arabia, Nepal, India, China and all the African countries together have the top amount of students. Because of this we have diversity events all the time. We always have a International Night once a year which includes food and entertainment for a Saturday night. Then each group of students has a night to represent their culture. Nights like African Night are really popular and so much fun.
Another thing I like about the students here is their political acceptance. Yes, I would say a majority of the campus is conservative, however, independents and democrats are not left out. People aren't mean to them or anything absurd like that.
Being located in SouthEast Idaho means little or no racial diversity, and this goes true for the University. Most of the foreign kids are here through the international students program as there are rarely foreigners who are native to the area. Most of the Black kids are here because they have to be highly skilled at one or more NCAA sports. Other than that it is a nearly homogenous group of Latter-Day-Saints, I say nearly because the Pocatello Campus is probably the most diverse place in Pocatello, ID. I myself am Black, more often than not I am the only African American in the classroom, and when there are others it seems like they are recruited solely for sports teams. The definition of "racism" is constantly changing and is different from place to place; that being said I beleive there is a high amount of "racism" at ISU where most students would say otherwise...keep in mind who "most students" are.

The student body at ISU is very diverse and accepting. For more information please see "Stereotyping at Idaho State University".
The student body is very diverse. If there is anything you would like to talk about or expereince there is somebody else on campus that would like to do the same thing. I haven't noticed any racial conflicts, but sometimes there is a little political and religious tention but not enough to cause any riots or property damage. I haven't even heard anyone yelling in the halls.
Most students wear modest clothing. Men always wear shirts, but sometimes the girls have some things that I think are a little too low cut. Some students have a lot of piercings, some don't have any. Some even come in thier pajamas, but then again, some wear suits. At Idaho State University, you can be yourself.
Classmates at ISU are older than your typical college student; and while this might seem unfavorable to some people, it is actually a wonderful experience because 1) there are no cliques or popular groups, 2) there is much less partying and drinking, 3) everyone is there to learn and help each other out with studying, and 4) everyone is friendly.
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.
Very friendly and willing to help one another in class assignments.

Intresting people many dont act like they care if they pass the classes.
Very eager to learn just there to get the job done.
Nice, friendly people, usually young, around my age between approx. 18-22 but it's not uncommon to have a middle aged adult in your class.
My classmates are awesome, everyone is friendly and easy to get a long with. College at Idaho State University is the best.
