4 College Junior

Athletics: Dome could seat more but rec. center is great.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are a big part of any University. Unfortunately our teams are not the best, but it is still a big part of the university. The Kibbie Dome is amazing, and the football field is great. The students are die hard fans of the vandals no matter how bad they play, so go team spirit.

The school spirit at U of I, especially for football, is great. During a football game, you see a lot of students painted up or dressed up and ready to cheer on the school's team. There is a lesser show of school spirit for other sports like basketball, swimming, and soccer, though. Overall, there is nothing spectacular about the sports program at the University, and the teams could be better at their sports. However, the sports programs do give excellent scholarships, and most of them have good coaches, too.

There are very good athletic amenities at the Kibbie Dome, which is the sports center on campus, and there is a conducive environment for athletes to train and thrive on campus, as well. In addition to varsity teams, there are also intramural clubs for sports like soccer, and they have games with opponents on campus or they often visit other schools to compete.

School Spirit
Before a football game, there is usually a lot of excitement in the air. You'll find many students dressed in Vandal gear, students who have painted their bodies with Vandal colors, and sometimes, members of the marching band run around the Commons playing their musical instruments. You will also hear some students chanting victory songs/words to encourage the football team.
Getting Tickets
Getting tickets for a football game is not a difficult ordeal. Students get free tickets, as long as they have their Vandal cards. Depending on the opposing team, tickets can run out fast, and some students might not get tickets.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The UI Arboretum, Moscow-Pullman Trail, Troy Trail
Did You Know?
Idaho's first football stadium was Neale Stadium, which burned down in 1969.
