I have always known that I was meant to attend the University of Idaho. I have been visiting the campus since I was nine years old, and I don't remember a time when I have not been in love. I love the Greek life, and am a proud member of a sorority. I like being involved in the student community most of all activities. Advice to be given to prospective students would be to get involved in activities, and meet as many other students as possible. The more experience you have in college, the more experience you will set yourself up for in the future.

It is a great value for high quality education. I like the most that it was a smaller school with great contact with teachers, professors. My most memorable experiences were the life long friends that I have made, and those memories made with those with those people.
