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.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I have never felt like I could not ask a question in or out of class. The teachers seem to have a mentality that they really want to help the students succeed in class.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The students here often get jobs in their fields of study but often times that is not so.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The housing here is great!!! But extremely expensive.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: ISU is alright for a school, the teachers here have very liberal views on the world and that makes it hard sometimes when teachers judge you and downplay you according to your personal views but other than that it isn't a bad place to be.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm a nontraditional student and have children at home so I pretty much just go to school and come home. So far my experience has been mostly positive.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have already got a ob offer for when I am through with school but it wasn't through a recruiter. I went out on my own.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've never had an issue nor have I known anyone that has.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't use campus housing so I don't really know.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't really know much about this part of campus life.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's close to where I live and works well with my schedule and taking care of my children.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Just got a brand new facility not too long ago.

3 College Senior

Academics: lack motivation, robots they are

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.
