4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's feels like the beginning of an amazing life and it all starts here. It's already been so amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like my school because there is a ton of fun activities while still focusing on academics. The campus is beautiful and the staff are very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school has a great atmosphere and most of the teachers are great to work with and want to see the students succeed.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: ISU puts on a lot of different activities. One of my favorites are their culture festivals because we get to learn about a lot of the different countries and their cultures. This college is also very diverse which kind of surprised me only because I didn't expect Idaho to be so diverse.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoy going to school at Idaho State. The professors are extremely helpful.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I enjoy the campus in Pocatello at Idaho State, but the rest of the town doesn't reflect itself as a nice city. I wish that the city of Pocatello was a prettier town to attract more students to tw beauty of the town rather than keeping them bored on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This college has been a wonderful experience for me. I started out at a community college out of high school and then transferred to Idaho State University. I love all the opportunities that they give to their students, and the professors have all been pretty great. The only gripe I have with the school is that the campus isn't that great, and Pocatello is not a really great place to live.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: During high school I liked many of my classes, thoroughly enjoyed my choir classes, but did not excel in chemistry. Teachers were good and faculty was excellent.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Idaho State University has a great health care programs and the fact that the professors help out with their students makes the learning experience a lot better. It's a great school.

Off-Campus Housing: All of the houses near campus are horrible. Old and dilapidated and in poor condition. Most of the previous tenants just trash the homes so the new tenants are stuck in crappy conditions and the landlords don't bother with fixing anything because the next day it will just be broken again.

If you want a decent place off campus, your best bet is looking on the other side of town.

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing too great, all really generic and overpriced.

Administration: Our campus has strict policies, however, they do almost nothing to enforce most of them.

Scholarships: If you ever have any issues, make sure you have all of your information handy - even peripherally related information. The Financial Aid office here is kind of mean and they tend to make you feel bad for having absolutely no idea how to do anything that only they can do.

Campus Food: There is only one dining hall and there is usually not very much seating available. Taste-wise: Einstein's Bagel is the best, but there is no cost-effective eatery on campus. Luckily, there's a Taco Bell across the street.

Campus Housing: Free Wifi made it worth it. But, I moved off campus within a year because I found something better for my family.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy my school. I live a couple blocks off campus so I can run home and eat lunch to save money. It also has a great education including their health science program.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am currently working as an intern for my major and absolutely love it. ISU has great opportunities to make connections with people in your desired major.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Some buildings are really nice and up to date such as Rendezvous. Other buildings such Garrison and Turner are not in the greatest shapes.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It is definitely a hit and miss

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of places to choose from

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.
