I absolutely love the University of Idaho. The people are friendly and the classes are engaging. My classes can be difficult at times but there are so many resources available. It seams like they really want there students to succeed.

I would chose to go to my school again and be more involved in activities. The overall experience has been lackluster when all I do is focus on academics.

The moment I arrived to this school I felt at home, it is just such a cute town filled with amazing people.
