2 College Sophomore

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.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't get invited to or hear about parties, so I cannot accurately answer/rate this question.

3 College Sophomore

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

2 College Sophomore

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

3 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of restaurants near to campus

4 College Junior

Administration: They will put a stop to any illegal activities

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Depends on who you know if you want to go to parties

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid office was a big help.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It is an average living environment there is a lot of fun things to do and is close to the cafeteria. It is also near the Gym and Dome so sporting events are easily accessible. I myself need more space is why for me it is average.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus and I would much rather this because there is so much more privacy and space and there is a kitchen! so I don't need a meal plan. the down side is to drive I still need a parking pass so I have to ride the bus which can be inconvenient at times

Off-Campus Dining: Near the school I think there are three real food place you can go to.. the rest is stores of in chubbuck which is pretty far from the school.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They are relatively strict at my school especially when it comes to any kind of cheating or plagiarism. Public safety is very on top of things from my personal experience other than that I haven't really heard of any problems

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I have heard of one party this whole year that was hosted by a frat and I only have one more month of school.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I had a hard time earning any scholarships because I didn't meet the requirements that I needed to get any through the school. its hard to understand how to do them and I think it was a hassle trying to talk to an adviser to get the help i needed to understand them they have a lot but not a lot that fit what I would need to do or for my major and GPA.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I typically don't eat on campus a whole lot because I don't have a meal plan but every now and then it is nice to rush through on my way to a big class and grab food from the grill. they aren't to badly priced and i think the variety is nice. There could be a better variety but overall what I have gotten was satisfying.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I think that Idaho States housing programs are alright but they aren't the best by any means. they are semi close to all of the classes but a lot of the buildings aren't kept to the cleanest level and are kind of scary going in and out of. There is somewhat of a good social side but there really isn't a whole lot going on by housing here in Pocatello. there could be a lot better maintenance to the buildings are they seem pretty expensive. There is one really nice housing building right in the middle but they don't have a lot of openings and most freshman cant live in them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live in a house about two miles from campus. It is a very nice little place and the price is very reasonable

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
