What is your overall opinion of this school?

My first year was very unique. I entered college with no help from family in terms of monetary contribution. University of Idaho was very helpful in finding me many more opportunities in order to pay for college. The classes, including sizes, are wonderful. The majority of my teachers have been extremely helpful in many ways. The only "bad things" to discuss would be the sports that are not recruited very well and so we suffer many losses. Also, the on-campus dining at the dining halls do not have great food.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Idaho was my dream school all my life. The day I started UI was the best day ever. It is such a beautiful school with such amazing people. I found a home in Greek life as well as at the University of Idaho. It has allowed me to grow tremendously as a person and has allowed me to find my true self and meaning in life. I can't wait to graduate and to tell my future children about all the amazing experiences I had while attending. Go Vandals!!

U. of I. is a welcoming and engaging school. The faculty and students are eager to help. From my visits, this small yet beautiful campus appears to have a safe and friendly atmosphere with lots of opportunities to become involved in the daily life of fellow students and academics.

University of Idaho is a great school, there are many ambassadors to help you around campus. People are so friendly. I had a great experience! Also the University of Idaho has many activities to do. There is a lot of events to attend year round being away from home is difficult but going Greek life you have your sister and brothers to help you along the way or your roommate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to the University of Idaho because I toured it and fell in love with the campus. It is a gorgeous, historic campus that gives you that stereotypical academia feel. From ivy-covered brick, to luscious full-grown trees, this campus is beautiful to boot. After falling in love with the campus itself, I enrolled as a student and soon came to realize that the university itself is incredible as well. The class sizes are small and I get to feel engaged in every discussion that is held. I have become involved with the housing staff and we work on putting on great FREE events for thousands of students. There are ample opportunities for anyone and everyone to find a home at the University of Idaho. I am an advocate for Alexander Astin's Involvement Theory in the world of higher education. I have seen time and time again that students who devote time to studying, spend time on campus, participate in student organizations, and interact frequently with faculty and other students are wildly successful in comparison to those who do not do these things. I can say with full confidence that the University of Idaho fosters an environment in which all four of these factors of involvement can be implemented by every student with ease. The university has a large tutoring and academic coaching program, is actively working on adding more student spaces every year, is constantly adding and supporting student groups and organizations, and requires faculty to have office hours in which students can engage one-on-one with their educators. The university has really got this system figured out. I'm from a much bigger city, so the transition to small-town living wasn't easy by any means. The University of Idaho is located in Moscow, Idaho. It is a small town that honestly needs a little TLC. With that being said, the college life and the recent Livability review naming Moscow as the 'Best City to Raise a Family', the sleepy little town is seeing some improvements being put in place. More restaurants and businesses are being built. Some old, run-down establishments have been getting much needed face lifts. The town may need some work, but the city officials seem to be aware of it and seem to be actively working on maintaining and updating the town that they are very clearly proud to live in. If you want affordable schooling, affordable living, and an easier transition into adult living, I would highly recommend the University of Idaho. You will learn so much about yourself while being on your own, but you will find comfort in the small and intimate setting. Go Vandals!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Campus looks and smells like a farm. If you're not in greek you're considered boring and nobody. Most people who go here study agriculture, engineering or buisness so the majority of the people are farm like people or nerds. It's a party school because there's litrally nothing to do so people just party. Everyone who lives in Moscow are rednecks or farmers. The food is disgusting. I only lated a year in there

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as though the inner workings and the politics of the administration is questionable at the very least. However most of the instructors that I have had enjoy teaching and are knowledgeable. Plus, you cannot beat the tuition rates. I would really like to see more offered for the students and faculty that is not another giant area that will barley get filled during the academic year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To me the University of Idaho is more than just an educational institution, it is a home. I say this because of how welcoming and genuine the faculty, staff and students are. While touring colleges and making the decision of where to go I was apprehensive to live somewhere far from home because of how dependent I was on my parents. I decided to tour the University of Idaho because I had some friends recommend it to me. On the tour it rained, snowed, hailed and had clear skies all in the same day. I am not a big fan of poor weather conditions but I still couldn't help falling in love with the campus and people. This was a shock to me because I am such a homebody and had planned on living at home throughout my undergraduate degree. Although this would have been more cost-effective, going to UIdaho has been the best decision of my life. I went back a couple weeks later and sat down with my advisor and registered for classes. There were so many helpful people around me that made this such an easy and enjoyable experience. I then signed up for recruitment over the summer, not knowing what I was getting myself into. I thought this would be a good way to get involved with the university and community, but I did not expect it to turn into such an important, life changing experience. The greek life at UIdaho pushes people to be the best versions of themselves and that is exactly what had happened to me. Within one year I had accomplished so many goals of mine that I never thought I would have the strength to do. I ran for a leadership position and got a 4.0 GPA the first semester of college. This is all because I was in a house full of empowered women encouraging me to fulfill my goals. The University of Idaho is somewhere that motivates students to get involved with the university and community. There's an abundance of volunteer opportunities, clubs to join, or even involvement in student government. Going into my sophomore year I am so eager to see what the next three years have in store for me at the University of Idaho. After finding my confidence, ambition and best friends during my freshman year, I am going into these next years so excited to find the next best version of myself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being a Vandal at the University of Idaho has come with a wide variety of leadership experiences and opportunities and has no shortage of clubs and organizations. While our Greek Life is relatively big, its infrastructure is loosely defined with all too many members treating their non-greek peers with elitist attitudes, creating an unfortunate divide within the University. That, and the many Deans missing from College Departments are easily the biggest cons in going to school here. However, these may be our University's only real short-comings, and they are easily solvable by students who are passionate about building a better community. Whether you want to run for an elected position for the Associated Students of the University of Idaho, host large-scale programs like Headphone Disco or Finals Fest, or want to take charge in community-based leadership and volunteer experience, there is something for everyone. Plus, with all the tutors and mentorship programs available, maintaining a qualtiy GPA is an accomplishable feat. With the variety of personality types and political stances found here at the University of Idaho, it's easy to say there is a group here for everyone. And once a part of the Vandal Family, always a part of the Vandal Family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just completed UIBound and I had so much fun. We toured everywhere. I fell in love with the campus. This is exactly what I envisioned college would be like. I formally accepted my admittance and look forward to the next chapter in my journey at U of I!
