3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I play baseball, so my classes had to be tailored around are practices and games. As a result, I have some morning, afternoon and night classes.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I prefer a classroom setting with fellow peers and live instructors. It would be nice to have online peer-to-peer live participation and feedback for online classes.

3 College Junior

Career Services: As I referenced before, due to the college being smaller along with the community as well, I feel job assistance and placement are limited for the area.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm taking general courses, and my instructors are generally readily available if I have questions. It would be nice it they had a wider base of courses to choose from.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since the campus is so small along with the surrounding community, there doesn't seem to be a lot of recruitment from bigger corporations.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Everyone is close knit and supports one another. Our athletic teams all come and support each other!

4 College Student

Overall Experience: My experience has been awesome at the college of southern Idaho. There has been blood drives and college fairs which has along with movie nights which have been great to be a part of but most importantly the community and the teachers show that they really care about your future. The teachers and tutors are willing to do anything to help a student to achieve their goal in class. That is my main reason why I would attend again at this school because they show pride in their student's.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I know what classes were required, took them and they were accepted for this program. They were flexible with accepting a communications course once they had the opportunity to review the course syllabus from the other school.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since I am already in the nursing program, I do not know what the class sizes are for the rest of the campus. My personal experience and the feedback I have gleaned from other students in the nursing program is that in each course, there is one instructor who does a very poor job of teaching and can be very negative and discouraging to students. However, in each of the courses, there are also instructors who do an excellent job of presenting challenging material, are willing to help students outside of class and who are fair-minded. Unfortunately, administration seems unwilling to address the problems with the poor instructors. Student evaluations are consistent reporting problems in the program with instructors and with the use of video-taping for evaluations. For whatever reason, these issues are being ignored.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is a nursing shortage throughout the country and this school has a good reputation regarding it's graduates.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am in the registered nursing program. Our classes are in a building that is not on the main campus. As a result, we do not have ready access to the library, testing center or student union. The positive side of that is the people in our building tend to be serious students with specific goals in mind. The workload is heavy. For the most part, the instructors are capable and willing to help students. There are a few that the students prefer would find other jobs, as they are very poor instructors. The facilities are new and beautiful.

One negative aspect of the program is that the faculty evaluates skills based on video taping rather than direct observation. I do not find this a beneficial way of learning, practicing or being evaluated on skills. For instance, when one is being evaluated via video taped performance, there is no opportunity for immediate correction of mistakes. As a result, these mistaken processes are left in your mind and your muscle memory for approximately two weeks before any feedback is given. The instructors must observe ALL the videos anyway, so it is not saving them any time. And it is counter-productive to effective learning.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Had I realized the school was so heavily populated with religious conservatives, I probably would have chosen to attend school elsewhere. That being said, the coursework is challenging, the professors (with a few exceptions) are very good and the area is beautiful in the spring and summer.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: We now have our own Health Care Building, Physical Fitness, Business, Technical, and more. As an agricultural community, a lot of people require that knowledge as well, and it is provided. There is no limit to the options, it seems like.

Overall Experience: Talking about the professors, well all the professor are been treating me right with respect help and motivation, i had never been treat as a "dumb" student they treat you as real person telling you what to do and if you need their help they help will help you at any time. those are been my experiences at this college maybe i haven't interact a lot with teachers a lot but for my point of view they are pretty good persons always having time for you.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: If we are talking about service at the campus, there is people always trying to have clean everything around campus putting posters to let the people know that this campus needs to be like our house make them know it before. people need to fell comfortable to get their degree in a sweet place clean and attended.

Overall Experience: The school of Southern of Idaho really helped me to get involved in classes so i could be able to choose a major , they give me time when i had a job having patience with my irregular schedule i have during my acceptation at this school college. this makes it unique because they follow you step by step. the adviser are sensational they always have time for you not matter if their schedule or their work hours are finished they keep attending persons till they done with the last one, this is why i love this school and makes me fell comfortable and giving me energy to keep thinking that i can finish a major because the are giving me the most grateful help i can get.
