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.

Idaho State Student Reviews

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 :)
