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.
The College of Western Idaho is a fairly new school that has done a wonderful job so far. There is a variety of classes offered at several different locations in the Treasure Valley in Idaho as well as online courses. The best part about the school is the cost, it is very affordable and convenient. The students are friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend this school over and over again.
