The staff at College of Western Idaho are phenomenal, but keep in mind that this is a community college so therefore is lacks in the student life aspect of the experience and there are not sports teams. I did work on the Student Activities Programming Board for a semester though, so they are picking up the student life, also they are about to undergo major construction and add many additional buildings to the campus so it is growing. Overall really good experience here, and extremely affordable, as well as the housing in the Nampa area is very reasonable cost wise.
Review College of Western Idaho
The courses I have taken have been very interesting and helpful. I learn so much in every course that I am enrolled in. Some of the courses that I have taken are psychology 101, sociology 101, English 101, communications 101, spanish 201 and these classes have all been very excellent! The classes are not too big, they are enough to where each person gets 1 on 1 with the professors. The professors go out of their way to help any student that is struggling and go out of their way and time to help their student succeed.
I love the College of Western Idaho, at this school students have the freedom to come and go as they please. The classes are small, and in every way there is always 1-on-1 learning. One of the best things is also, that students may print ANYTHING for absolutely free on campus. As a community college, it is perfect for staying in budget and completing cores or other career-technical classes. CWI offers many certification tests in the school, which is perfect for any student looking to get a head start on their career while still in college.
