4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have had no bad experiences so far, so all is well.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: If people are doing drugs, they are clearly hiding it very well, as there are no signs of drug usage on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarship committee is very helpful and efficient. I even got a scholarship without applying for it, because of my good GPA. Be sure to apply early, since they are very strict on deadlines, as it should be.

Give it your best shot and sell yourself well, without lying or being proud. That is always helpful.

Be honest, truthful and sincere and something should definitely come up :)

4 College Student

Health & Safety: ISU is the 6th safest school in the United States, I feel very safe at school.

3 College Student

Scholarships: My financial aid has been a process, I had to fill out the paper twice and then verifiy the mother's information.

3 College Student

Weather: The weather really doesn't affect us, we just can't do a lot of outside activities as it's winter most of year.

3 College Student

Computers: There are a lot of computer labs, but during crunch times in semesters, it's best if you bring your own computer or you might not get a computer in the computer lab. Printing on campus is fairly easy and very cheap to do so.

3 College Freshman

Academics: It offers a wide range of good majors.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather gets windy sometimes, but it is nice. It does get a bit cold though.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There really isn't much outside the school. It is a boring town in all.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The speech language pathology isn't the greatest. Some of the instructors are rude and think we are little children, while others believe we should know everything in a 1101 class.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It is not that hard to get on path.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: They have a wide variety of intramural sports which is great!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the people are very rude. The janitors are so nice though as well as housing staff. The RA wasn't the best and did not help at all.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: There's campus security on the weekends, but as long as you keep yourself composed they're not going to stop you.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Moscow is a college town and there are tons of places to live off campus that are close to school and affordable. The hardest adjustments are being ten minutes away instead of five and having to cook your own food.

5 College Student

Scholarships: Applying to the school was all I had to do to be entered for scholarships.

4 College Student

Athletics: We have a lot of support for our teams, and take on the mentality that win or lose, there's always booze. I would say that intramurals are huge on campus and there's a lot of diversity in the sports.

3 College Student

Weather: Some days the weather is amazing, and other days you want to stay inside all day. In Moscow it gets dark around 4:30 in the winter and you feel like you're going to get blown over by the wind. Headbands and hats are a must or your ears will be ringing by the time you walk across campus. When it is nice, it's perfect though and everyone is always out enjoying the sun.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: I lived in a sorority on campus and it was amazing! The houses are kept up and spacious, however the dorms on campus are cramped and outdated. Though there is one new building with more expensive and nicer dorm rooms.

Greek Life: This is another area that I'm not entirely sure about. I've been approached once about joining a fraternity, but declined the invitation.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

ISU is what someone might call "one of a kind." It has the city setting without actually being in a huge city. It is an institution with diverse programs, qualified professors, and a field of interest for any student. And although it is an Idaho university with an Idaho environment, out-of-state and international students are welcome and included. There is a club or student organization for everybody, and if that isn't your cup of tea, there is always the great Idaho outdoors to enjoy.

ISU has a wonderful hometown feel with multiple opportunities available. The student experience at ISU, and probably any college or university, really comes down to what the student wants out of it. Pocatello can be viewed as an amazingly boring town, or it can be a fun, chill place to just lay back and enjoy life. That is definitely the word for Pocatello and ISU life in general—chill. For the most part, students and professors are laid-back and easy-going. The ISU experience is what students make of it, but most likely that experience will be one of great memories and good times in good ol' Idaho.
