The College of Idaho Top Questions

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?


My family lives approximately 10 minutes from the campus. That being said, on weekends I am given the choice to either stay in my dorm, or go home to stay with my family. However, the campus is typically dead on weekends, as most of the school population does live locally. It's rather discouraging for social events, but it's a great place to have a weekend job, or get some extra studying done. There are definitely pros and cons, but it is overall frustrating.


I absolutely love this school. I have found that sometimes things aren't what they seem, and this can be frustrating. All in all, The College of Idaho has shown me how to prepare for things on my own and get around frustrations by doing some independent research on certain topics.


Lack of spirit on the campus during the weekend and Winter months.


As a transfer, the Peak program that the C of I requires all of its students to complete, messes you up badly. Because of the Peak program, I am a year behind at this school and will most likely have to do an extra year than the 4 I had planned before I can graduate.


The lack of diversity has to be the most frustrating thing about the school. It is 45 minutes outside of Boise, Idaho and the school is mostly comprised of idaho residents. There are a number of international students; however, there is not much race or ethnic diversity on campus. Some minorities have expressed frustration about feeling uncomfortable due to being culturally, religiously, or ethnically different than the overall majority.


The College of Idaho has decided to raise tuition in the next school year by a small amount.


The most frustrating thing about my college is some of the councilers. It's hard to set up an appointment with them some times. You end up sending about 7-8 e-mails to them before you both figure out a time that's good for both of you... and one of my councilers messed up this year... It only slightly made me mad. But it's only happend once, so I'm not going to hold it against them.


Classes fill up too quickly.


Though we get breaks every six weeks, our other breaks are shorter and do not always coincide with those of other colleges.


Probably that there is not on-campus food available after 8:00 P. M. Many times practices or club meetings go later in the evening, which makes it impossible to get to the cafeteria or the student union building before they stop serving food.
