Overall Experience: The career services center is amazing! They will help you find a job even if you graduated 10 years ago from UI. They're always there to help you and prepare you for whats next.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My main complaint is the quality of some of the cupboards, particularly in the bathroom. They are very old and chipped and just overall are really not good. Everything else is what you'd expect from a campus apartment, and it works for me.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally, I am not a part of Greek life, but I love what they do for the community. They're a great contribution.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Access to the facilities is SO easy. There are tons of different exercise classes available from Zumba, to conditioning, cycling, pilates, etc. There is also the option to work with a personal trainer to help you achieve personal goals whether it's with health, weight management, or training certain muscles to help with your sport. The arena where games and events are held is massive! The fields are almost always being used for practices and recreation. The school spirit and support is just amazing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is so friendly & helpful & informative! By far the best at all three of those than any other college I have visited. My advisers really care a lot about me and were very excited to have me in their program. The campus is beautiful and the weather is practically identical to where I grew up, so it's not much of a culture shock. There are lots of classes to choose from so I know I will never be bored!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think the safety on campus is great. They offer campus security if you ever are scared to walk alone or anything. Plus, they are always checking in, in the residents halls.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, I believe that this university was a perfect fit for me. There are a variety of classes that are offered and each professor that I have had, has been such a great help to me.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have been offered an internship for a probation officer's assistant, but sadly they preferred someone with at least one year of college completed. The university is always hiring on campus and gives students the opportunity for a job.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I honestly would have liked to get a single room considering that I would just have my own personal space.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life tries to incorporate non-greeks to join in on the events they're doing. Non-greeks also have greeks attend their events.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I was in a club for a soccer team and it was a great experience getting to know others as well.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have had a great time at the University of Idaho. I was on a club soccer team and it was a great way to get out and get to know others that had the same interests as me. The university provides a variety of majors and minors to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not yet attended my school but so far the overall atmosphere is amazing. It's education focused and everyone is so friendly with abundant resources offering educational health

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are pretty bland and average. I shared one with a roommate first semester, and I didn't find it comfortable at all. I decided to pay for a single room for second semester, and it has been much more convenient.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a member of the Greek system myself, but I know many people who are. Their experiences range quite a bit. Some people really enjoy it, some hate it. Just depends on if it fits for you personally.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety and security all students on campus is high priority to administrators at the University of Idaho. As an incoming freshman it is a requirement to complete an online course designed specifically for these topics. Some may think it is a waste of time however I felt it worthwhile considering most students have never lived away from home before. I believe parents should feel a sense of comfort knowing their children have chosen Moscow, Idaho to call their home away from home while pursuing their dreams of getting a college degree.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My first year experience with college courses and professors has been very positive. In high school, my studies seemed to come fairly easy thus having very little homework. However, it didn't take long to find that college courses and professors expect more and they were extremely willing to help and available for their students; as they transitioned into the college lifestyle, curriculum and being away from home. I feel the administration at the U of I are truly committed to the success of their students from ad visors, professors and coaches alike.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is really nowhere better in Idaho or the Northwest for that matter for a great education and traditional life than the University of Idaho. It is well known for its' engineering programs and offer many opportunities outside the class to get involved, be sure engineering is a fit for the individual and offer many job/internship opportunities. Talk to alumni or better yet visit and feel the majic of the University of Idaho for yourself. Go Vandals!!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As a first year student and a football player, we are required to live the Wallace Residence Center. This dorm consists mainly of fine art students who prefer not to associate outside the classroom with athletes. Most second year students live in apartments on or off campus, therefore I am looking forward to summer semester where I will be sharing an apartment with my fellow teammates.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have not attended any Greek life functions so I don't have an opinion either way.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Vandal Athletics is on the uphill swing; you have to win games in order to draw spectators. This is true of athletic recruits with talent and/or drive that coaches need.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Idaho is a great place to attend college. I am from a small country town in Washington State so attending this university has allowed me to have the college experience but still feel the comforts of a tight knit community. Idaho has so many wonderful outdoor activities nearby to enjoy; just what an outdoor enthusiast like me needs when a much needed study break is calling. I am in my second semester at the University of Idaho pursuing a Bachelor's of Science in Engineering. I am also enjoying playing Vandal Football as a preferred walk on. Even though out-of-state tuition is high, I think the University of Idaho is a perfect combo of academics and fun. Go Vandals!!!.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my first year at school. I joined a sorority and it was one of the best decisions Ive made. I would choose to go to this school again if I had the chance.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

U of I opens up a lot of opportunities for students to get involved in different programs that actually impact the community and make a difference. Not only do you get a great education, but you also get the opportunity to meet some really great people. However, the location can sometimes be a bit of a detraction, so you really have to get out there and hit the ground running in terms of making friends and grasping opportunities. 

In terms of job outlook, U of I offers students many resources to prepare them for post-grad life. The Career Center organizes different programs, such as career fairs, and many departments in the school also create avenues for students to meet with professionals in their fields. These opportunities are especially open to students in different clubs on campus, so it's important to get involved. Different departments on campus also have guest speakers come to give talks.
