4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm pursuing a Master's Degree in Speech-Language Pathology and I believe I will be prepared to enter the workforce and easily obtain a job when I graduate.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It seems like Greek life is less apart of ISU then other colleges I've visited.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I feel like most students are very supportive of ISU sports and like to show their Bengal Pride at games.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Idaho State is very student friendly, I love that there are many free activities and opportunities available for students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a lot of help from the professors in my feels of study. They genuinely what to see me succeed and have helped and provided opportunities in every way they can. My other problem fedora I can say that it is more like I am just one of the many students they see each day.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My attainment of a degree in my Speacialtiy is very likely. Working after in my field may be hard just depending on what is available after graduation.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I believe that a place is as safe as you make it. That being said I feel safe on campus but I also know how to take care of myself and not get myself into bad situations. I can also defend myself.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I thought the application process was easy to acces, understand, and complete. I also believe the school looked at not just my nunbers but what I brought to the table as a older student, that had life experience and talents that would help me and the school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I think the sports and equipment in our school are adequate for what they are used for. I believe that a school should not just focus on sports though. I believe there should be a balance of support for other areas as well.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The community of ISU is lackluster, they charge an obscene amount of money for online classes which in results in frequently slowing down the graduation rate for many students, it feels like a college you just attend because you have no alternative. The only saving grace would be specific professors. My experience with professors in my field has been pleasant and worthwhile. They truly care about the study. I would choose this school again because of the professors and the relatively low cost to attend.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Idaho State University tries to compete with Boise State University but the money just simply isn't there. Boise State has practically better everything because they have funding to do so. However, there are faculty at ISU that make staying here worth while.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As far as a college campus goes, crime rates are relatively low.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school sports are not very good. I honestly root for my hometown team over my college. Nevertheless, they are there.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: General Education requirements can be a pain, but that is the case most everywhere. My favorite part is in regards to majors. I can apply to get both my Bachelor's in Health Science and Physical Therapy Assistant at the same time.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not a lot of crime happens, but if it does it is taken care of quickly.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some teachers are great, but there are a few that have to ruin everything and be in it basically to make people hate their schooling.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is a mediocre school unless you are going into nursing or physical therapy.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't get involved with the athletics, but I am an avid weight lifter. The Rec gym is lacking in a good variety of equipment. They are missing a lot of popular and regular machines/ other equipment type items.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is not the best, some teachers are great, others are definitely not. It's just a close school to help save some money because I can't afford to go outside of the state or pay housing.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It depends if you know people then you'll know when parties are happening otherwise you could go an entire year without ever attending any.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It depends if you know people then you'll know when parties are happening otherwise you could go an entire year without ever attending any.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are some really annoying students and instructors who discriminate but it's not bad

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I barely hear reports of drug and alcohol and I personally don't know people who indulge in it.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: I personally don't feel very safe on campus when I'm not traveling in a group.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
