The college and professors at College Of Western Idaho are nice, prompt, and very helpful. I would change their website to be more user friendly for online users as there was some things I missed and deadlines I missed for loans since I wasn't aware that I needed to do different things, overall my experience with them have been great! looking forward to a successful year!

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.
College of Western Idaho was definitely an experience. I went there directly out of high school and was in classes ranging from 20-60 people. The classes were very up and down I felt. My professors either were all in or not so much. I felt as though the way the teachers were involved could have changed. I had people who invested in their students with all they had, and others who didn't even know any of our names. I know college is different than high school, but I think there still needs to be a level of intimacy and personal relationships between teachers and students.
