1 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not like Greek Life

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off-campus. A lot of people do, though. And it works great for them. There are a lot of options

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining is AMAZING! There is such a variety of options. Theres even hawaiian. It's the best thing about this place. So much good food.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I have never had a problem. Though, I have never had any outstanding experiences

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive any financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not much of a party person. I hear Greeks have big ragers. However, I do not enjoy THAT kind of partying if you know what I mean. I enjoy clean house parties with more conversation than a bunch of passed out people in loose clothing.

Campus Food: Bobs is extremely over-priced for the quality of food they have.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: This is a good university if you are interested in joining the greek system or have a specific major. Other than that I would not recommend attending this school. The social life is bad outside of the greek system. The school is very very segregated. It is seperated into Greeks and Geeds. To me, that is very high school. It is the number 1 reason I dislike it here. Can't we all be friends? Nope, many activities and events happening at U of I are solely in the greek life. This is great for people wanting to join the Greek system. But for people like me..It's not a good thing.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know where people live outside of the dorms. It varies depending on the place.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining is really good. Gambino's is my personal favorite as of right now and they aren't to expensive. My friend and I could probably split a bowl of Fettuccine Alfredo and call it good.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are important, and the quality of facilities shows that for both athletes and non athletes

3 College Freshman

Administration: We've heard of the new rules, like no smoking at all and that toy guns/swords shouldn't be allowed or knives because they instill violence. If they looked at the scientific evidence, it doesn't. Nerf guns are used for humans vs. zombies. I make swords for props when I cosplay, but I'd never used them unless I'm posing for a picture. I also need a knife in order to cook. Plus if people want to smoke, they're going to smoke. It's a little ridiculous. That and I feel like, as an atheist, I'm not really represented because I see all these Christian or religious groups, but I never saw an atheist group. When I pressed people about it, they seemed thrilled because now they didn't have to feel alone anymore. Along with liberal groups.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love eating off campus especially at Gambinos or Ale House

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid really helps me out and I pay less than 5000 total for my bill and textbooks. I have an education fund set up with my grandfather that has the necessary money I need, so that helps too. Being on the waitlist of a class is stressful since they don't count those as credits and I'm stuck with not having the financial aid that I need so I have to pay more which not only stresses me out, but my father and grandfather too since they have to coordinate in order to get the money up here in time.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It seems like every weekend you can always find at least one fraternity that is throwing a party, and they're usually very fun.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I'm in a sorority so I don't eat at Bobs but our cooks are very good and always have pastries in the morning

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not really into parties or drinking, but I know that they do happen on campus over the weekends. I just stay in my dorm because the kids can get a bit out of control and that makes me uncomfortable if I'm outside alone.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's great, I live in a Sorority, Kappa Delta, so I'm involved in many activities and social events. Everyone on campus is very welcoming and friendly and it's very easy and convenient to make your way around campus since everythings so close; it's a comfortable atmosphere and environment.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Bob's food isn't that great. I mainly go there for breakfast since they don't make the cereal or the waffles. Denny's is a bit expensive, but it's better than most Denny's I have been so it's worth it. Winco is close by so I can go by food that I can either microwave or make in the Wallace basement with the kitchen.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The people make me uncomfortable sometimes, but the campus is easy to get comfortable on in terms of walking distance and feeling like a place you can stay for the next few years.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are quite a number of reasonably priced options within walking distance of the campus.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: There are a number of scholarships available through the school. A nice feature is if you are accepted, you are automatically considered for the universities scholarships.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing is insanely expensive in Moscow, and it is often difficult to find anything for rent outside of the months of May and August, when students are coming and going in droves. Additionally, many of the property management companies are difficult to work with and treat student renters like they're delinquents, even when they have stellar credit and renting histories.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We have a pretty good variety of restaurants and other food service options available downtown, within walking distance, and near the mall complex. Lots of casual places to pick up a burger or a taco, as well as some finer dining establishments that source local ingredients and cook everything from scratch.

College Junior

Administration: I work for the University of Idaho, and I am uncomfortable making any statements regarding administration.

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.
