University of Idaho Top Questions

Describe the students at your school.

Jessica

Hardworking and determined students, who are always willing to work together on assignments

M

The student body is mostly students from Idaho or Washington. There is a small international population here, mostly from the Middle East, China, or Brazil. Students tend to be socially driven. From my experience, Idaho is a very conservative state, however Moscow is very liberal. So you will find a mix of the two in the University.

Venessa Steinlicht

My classmates are very open-minded, helpful, and kind people whom I never experienced any problems within or outside the classroom.

Yuri

One of the things I like the most about the Universithy of Idaho is my classmates, all from different and very diverse backgrounds there for the same reasons you are. The fact that most of them are young makes a big difference as well.

Lindsay

Our students are diverse. No one is the same which makes the experience at the University of Idaho so exciting.

Ali

The student body is very diverse at my school. We have student organizations that incorporate all different groups on campus. We have a wide variety of religious gropus and socio-economical groups on campus. We have a LGBT club here also, and are a very well know group that push equality for all people through many on campus events. We also have a Womens Center on campus that work for women equality, counseling and also works closely with the LGBT community. We have many groups that believe very different things but my experience is that they all respect each other and what they stand for.

As I mentioned earlier, the students on campus are all very diverse, so I don't think it is possible for someone to feel out of place.Some students prefer to dress up, especially if it is necessary for a class, and some will walk to class in their sweats or something casual. Most of the students are from Idaho, but there are also a lot of people from California, Washington, and Oregon.

Rebecca

As I mentioned earlier, the students on campus are all very diverse. There are farmers, LGBT supporters, students from rural and urban areas, and foreign exchange kids. With all of the diversity, I don't think it is possible for someone to feel out of place.Some students prefer to dress up, especially if it is necessary for the business program, and some will walk to class in their sweats. Most of the students are from Idaho, but there are also a lot of people from California, Washington, and Oregon.

Anthony

I mostly have interaction with other Greek students on campus. Hardly any of the students are first generation college students, and many are legacies at U of I. The Greek system is made up of predominantly white students from middle and upper class families. About 60-75 percent of students have a car with them on campus. There is lots of support for LGBT students on campus, and a few clubs are extremely loud on campus about LGBT rights, making some conservative students uncomfortable in the last year. Most of the kids at U of I grew up in Idaho, which does not have a lot of LGBT issues come up in the state. U of I may not be the best choice for LGBT students, with the number of conservative kids at the school. The bullying that goes on in high school does not get better in colleges, and can many times get worse. There is a sharp divide between Greek and non-Greek students. Greeks are usually involved in student organizations, and it is unusual to see a non-Greek student within student government. Many residence hall students stay within their halls and close group of friends throughout their entire college career, and you never see them on campus. They tend to be quieter and less active in things like intramural sports; completely the opposite of Greek students.
