Overall

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.

Academics

The University of Idaho is dedicated to producing students that are ready to face the world after college. Professors here are expectant of their students, as well as open for questioning and guidance. Programs are easy to understand and advisors are constantly available to help with any problems. Classes are challenging and engaging to make students alert concerning current events and their own surroundings.

College Life

The social atmosphere at the University of Idaho is rather unique. Whereas most campuses have less than 10% Greek life, UI has a near 45% Greek population. As a result, the social life is very involved, but each Greek organization stresses grades as the most important activity on campus. There are many clubs and organizations in different subject areas to adhere to any interest. The campus is very safe, I would feel safe walking home alone from any part of the campus at any time of day or night. The entire student body gets very involved in athletic events, and the athletics programs have exponential support.

Overall

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.

Academics

Classes are small and I experienced easy access to all professors. The curriculum was current and challenging. I enjoyed the ability to find all the courses I needed when they best fitted my schedule. All teachers, professors and staff were very helpful.

College Life

The social life of the University is varied and offers something for everyone. I joined a fraternity that helped me develop personal skills that have helped me my whole life. As an incoming freshman with little to no study habits....the fraternity helped to teach me how to study and take tests. Academic success was the foundation to success in becoming a member of the fraternity I chose.

Overall

The University of Idaho helped me to become the person I am today. I was involved in the Greek system, and formed many enduring friendships and connections that still are important to me today. The school was not huge, thereby insuring that most students knew many other students--giving everyone a "family" feeling. I think it is important for prospective students to go to the "introduction day" in the Spring, Vandal Friday where they are introduced to faculty and get help registering for their Fall classes.

Academics

Classes are small at the University of Idaho. Most classes are taught by professors, not graduate assistants. This institution really places a lot of emphasis on the student/counselor relationship. Advisers work closely with students to keep the students on track for graduation.

College Life

There are many philanthropic activities on campus. Each Greek house, and many of the Dorms have special events dedicated to help their particular philanthropy. There are organizations for students in almost every activity one can imagine-- skiing, chess, language clubs, etc. There is an on campus safety organization which talks to every living group on campus about safety issues.

The University of Idaho is a great school. Greek life, and overall atmosphere are the legendary things this school is known for. If you are looking to make life long friends and great professional networking skills for the future, the University of Idaho is your school.

Academics

Classes were about 30-40 students each, some larger general studies lectures were 100-200 students in larger auditorium halls, workload was never too much, but yet challenging, thought provoking, and class attendance was important.

College Life

Student life and greek life, along with student organizations on campus is what this school is known for. There are so many opportunities to get involved in many areas in Campus Life. Atheletic activities are always highly promoted on campus for all students to attend.

Overall

I loved the University of Idaho. It trained me well in three majors in three years, which allowed me to attend graduate school at the University of Washington. Their summer school is strong and available for students to complete their degrees quickly. I love the beautiful campus at the U of I as it almost mirrors the Quad at the Univ. of Washington.

Academics

The class sizes were usually small , about 30 per class. Only a few 100 levels had over 70 students. The workload is managable, but one is expected to study. The professors go out of their way to get to know you, and you are not just a number.

College Life

The Greek life is very strong at the University of Idaho. One gets excellent housing, food and social life by going in the Greek system. More importantly the friends one makes through the Greek system are often friends for life. The campus is safe and well run.

Overall

The campus is a mid sized student population and set in a small town which I really liked. You can walk everywhere. The buildings are classic looking and it was a nice campus, you would walk down "hello walkway" where people said hi to everyone.

Academics

I started in the honors program, it was really challenging. Each professor I had was very passionate and cared about the students. Class size varied, intro classes were around 100, upper division classes around 25.

College Life

Greek life was awesome, there was always something going on. Lots of opportunities to get involved in activities and clubs. Everyone is really friendly and easy to make friends. The athletics are not what you go to this schol for.

Overall

I'd been on the road for a solid week, and had seen half the colleges in the Pacific Northwest. I was tired. I was disappointed--Humboldt? Much too far away. Portland State? I'm not much of a city girl. Every campus was wonderful, but none were right. Finally, I was back in Idaho. Check out Moscow? Why not? It's on the way. I knew the moment I stepped on campus I'd found the one. It was perfect--beautiful, with its gothic, ivy-covered buildings and a backdrop of rolling wheat fields. Everyone was friendly and helpful. It had a small-town feel I couldn't get enough of, and should I ever tire of the quiet, thriving downtown Pullman, WA is ten minutes away. The arts scene is alive and well and even hip, and the off-campus cuisine is superb. This was my experience with the University of Idaho. I can't say it's perfect for everyone, but if my experience was representative of anything, I believe everyone has their "soulmate" college. When you find it, you'll know, and there's no better feeling in the world!

Academics

I haven't attended the University of Idaho yet, though I'm enrolled for the fall semester--everyone has wonderful things to say about their academics, though. Their business and agriculture schools are renowned, and I've heard their law school is among the best in the Northwest.

College Life

At UI, Greek is the way to go. They have a massive Greek system, and it gives the campus a general feel of camaraderie--to an outsider looking in, anyway. Beyond that, I don't know if I have enough campus experience to speak on the "college life."
