5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It has been a great experience and have been enjoying my classes.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Idaho has a great student body size for me. I don't feel like I get lost in the crowd here, but there's still plenty of new people to meet! It also has a lot of great on campus opportunities for all students. I have enjoyed being a part of the Army ROTC unit on campus, as well as being involved in intramurals, clubs, sporting events, and everything the recreation center has to offer. It is also in a great location; there is plenty to do in and around Moscow for anybody that loves the outdoors.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At the University of Idaho, they always tell students that they base their students success with supporting them and making them part of the Vandal family. I truly believe it although it is far away from home and I was a first generation college student I didn't feel homesick at all. why? Because since the moment I stepped on the college campus I knew that this was my new home. That comfortable feeling you get when you visit a campus and you can see yourself there for the following years is what I felt. The university is great in so many ways but I think the most important one is the staff. From the T.A to the professors I have felt support and connection with each one I have had this year. I felt comfortable to going in and talking to my professors and they would understand and knew my name. Even if the class was big and you wouldn't think they would memorize the name of their students from so many sections they were able to. This is the best part because I feel like I'm learning and building a relationship with my professors I come across with. The University of Idaho really knows how to make any student feel like home and to me it is the best in my state. I would choose this school over and over again if I could simply because every time I talk about how great it is I get that excited feeling I had during my senior year visiting the school for registration. The opportunities that a student can receive there are endless and the support as well. I am glad to be part of the Vandal Family. GO VANDALS!

Campus Food: Required to eat and pay for bobs....which is worse than prison food

Everywhere else is ridiculously expensive

Dennys all nighter is pretty amazing, just incredibly expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: University given financial aid is minimal, however, the process of them getting you your outside financial aid is wonderful.

Campus Housing: Dorms:

Known Asbestos in building

62 square feet shared with another person for the entire year...

Showers that are a breeding ground for tinea versacolor and have not been updated since original installation.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am currently staying at The Grove in Moscow. I absolutely love it due to the location, parking, safety, and I was able to bring my dog with me. The Grove keeps me in the loop for events put on in the club house, and with those that are put on at the college.

Party Scene: I don't partake in the parties that occur on campus. Most are put on through the Greek Life fraternities, and I'm not affiliated with these students. I find the best parties to be off-campus, and with a close group of friends.

Off-Campus Dining: The variety of off-campus dining is one of the best parts about Moscow. Downtown Main Street is one of my favorite areas in Moscow. Especially for the Farmers Market that occurs during summer classes.

Administration: I have rarely seen campus police actually on campus. However there haven't been many huge issues happening on campus, so I'm assuming the security is at the right level.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process is relatively smooth, except for my experience with qualifying for work study. I would ensure that fellow students are aware of the acceptance dates for work study, and how the process of the waitlist on work study actually works.

Campus Food: The food in the commons is pretty decent. I like Einsteins the most. It's very convenient for when you don't have time to leave campus for lunch, or if you forgot your lunch at home.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Since I was a transfer student, I didn't have to make the decision to live on campus. If I would have had to choose, I would have chosen to live Greek. There seems to be more amenities when a student is involved with Greek life. There seems to be a more positive environment, the convenience of being close to classes, and the social atmosphere is typically higher than living in the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I felt that Bob's could definitely do better with their food. I personally got the same thing almost every night I went to dinner there; a hamburger or pizza. This was due to the fact that the other food didn't look super appetizing. I really enjoyed having flex dollars because they gave me the opportunity to eat at Denny's or go get sushi from The Grid when I wasn't feeling up for Bob's. I do feel that the meal plans or overpriced for the quality of food received at Bob's.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in two different dorms my freshman year. The first being Wallace Residence Center, which was definitely not my favorite. This residence center was a suite style, with four students per suite with one shared bathroom among the four. I ended up with only one roommate, who was absolutely great. The rest of the social environment, at least in my hall, was not what I was hoping for my first year. I decided that I would rather live in the Theophilus Tower. This is strictly first year students and traditional style dorms, meaning one had a single roommate and community bathrooms. The switch to this dorm was a really easy one for me. All the friends I had made within the first four weeks of college were in this dorm, it was closer to my friends, and I felt like I was going to have a better experience. I was definitely correct. The friends I made my first year of college are friends that I can see me having for the rest of my life. The traditional style dorms force a person to reach out and make connections with the people you are living with. I couldn't have asked for a better living experience in Theophilus Tower.

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.
