3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Many upperclass students find housing off-campus. The school operates a few locations that students are allowed to use that offers a larger feeling of freedom. The campus is also surrounded by residential neighborhoods which offer a few houses for students to rent or lease.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We are surrounded by a moderate selection of fast food chain restaurants. McDonalds are Dairy Queen are very close. While we do have a few locally owned small businesses close by the cost makes the chain restaurants the easiest option.

5 College Junior

Administration: The school's strictness is very lenient when it comes to a majority of social exploration. While students aren't encourage to partake in underage drinking, they are not punished unless the drinking poses a risk to the person drinking or others.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is really easy to get when applying for the school. Each year you do need to reapply for any scholarships that you did get upon admission. The majority of the cost for the school is covered by financial aid offered however there is sometimes a good amount that will either need to be paid out of pocket or covered by supplemental scholarships.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Every weekend there is something for everyone. Whether you'd rather spend your time drinking or just laying low with some friends in the dorms you can always find something fun to do. Everyone is really friendly and none of the frat houses require partygoers to be a part of the greek life. Some frats require a small fee to enter the parties but the majority do not, which is always a plus.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: While the food in our dining hall is buffet style, the types of food are not the most nutritious. When visiting the dining hall multiple times a day, it is easy to go simply towards the carbohydrate filled foods, that are most common. Also we are limited to only one dining hall and a second grill, located in our student union building.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living here on campus is an easy way for students to get to know each other. The cost is very reasonable for what amenities are offered in each dorm. The lowest cost dorm does not have the most luxurious amenities but it does have features such as large open areas, large televisions and more. The most expensive dorms have amenities such as a full kitchen with a stovetop, oven and newer appliances and furnature.

Party Scene: same as other learning school for all I know, although some people come from up north to join us.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: they are always serving new dishes, from around the globe at the cafeteria. Fountain drinks and fresh fruits the place is like buffet and you can even take food back to your dorm to eat while you do your homework.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is always something going on at the campus. everyone not only parties together, but we also study and work hard together. we're alll socialbe and have time in our day to help other if they are in need, or just a bit lost.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not much for variety. Lots of chain restaurants.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security on campus is good. I feel totally safe on campus

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid was a headache to deal with.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some off campus housing is fair in price and close to campus.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Local atmosphere around college is good. College is about ten minutes from the mall.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There isn't much strictness on campus the expect students to behave like adults.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit and fan support is awesome. The bleachers are packed and students get really pumped up.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are people. Don't rate them on a scale based on appearances.

Scholarships: It's an expensive school, but they give out a decent amount of merit based scholarship money. Not enough need-based in my experience.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't dine off campus much because I just like the food here, but if I do it's usually for coffee (Bird Stop has good coffee, Dutch Bros doesn't but it's open 24 hrs, Human Bean is really close and I love the people there) Also, Beto's (a shitty 24 hr mexican fast food place) is a dining place of choice for most students. There are a few "good" restaurants in the area.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I love Caldwell. But more in a sentimental way than it's a great place to live. If you want something to do on the weekend, you can always go to downtown Boise, but not a lot happening in Caldwell. Except for the Bird Stop coffeehouse in downtown Caldwell. Go there. Honestly though, there's always stuff going on, on campus and you'll never be bored.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Financial aid is pretty difficult to work with, but from what I've heard about other universities, they're a little above average.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You're "supposed" to live on campus the first three years. First year is a must both cause of campus policy and because you'll know your classmates so much better! I recommend living on campus, but I know some people who room in houses together nearby because it's cheaper.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in a sorority, but I know people that are that love it. It adds another level of community on the campus. I know the initiation process for sororities is complicated, but not necessarily difficult to get into. Lots of guys are in frats and I heard that process is simpler.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: We have the most expensive housing in the state of Idaho, but that's because most of our housing is really nice. The more expensive options (Hayman, The Village, etc) are worth it in my opinion. They're newer and clean and very spacious.
