There is a main campus in Pocatello, but there is also a campus in the place that I live that offers a lot of classes that I took without having to move to Pocatello. The teachers that I have had so far have been fairly cool, except for one of the anatomy and physiology teachers. The campus is not too large, so the classes aren't spread very far. It had been a good all around experience.

I am in a health professions program and have been somewhat impressed. I transferred from Boise State which was my first choice. Boise State is very up to date with improvements while Idaho State is starting to lag behind. If I was to go to school again I would change my major to stay at Boise State, which might be happening sooner than later.

I enjoy my college, but I do wish there were more class times offered in Idaho Falls Campus. I also wish that certain classes weren't just available during certain semesters.
