Idaho State University Reviews
Review Idaho State University
Working in the Anthropology department for a number of years was quite enjoyable. I had so many good experiences with the faculty members and also enjoyed my classes immensely. There are several things about the University that I would change, including the lack of school spirit and the lack of challenging courses. Compared to other Universities, I felt as though I was not encouraged to be the bright academic I know myself to be. There was minimal encouragement from the University to participate in school events or activities. Other universities I have toured and visited have so much school support and comradery which brings the students together and creates a closer student bond with others.
I have a lot of experience on the campus of Idaho State University, I grew up on campus as my parents (now alumni) went to this school. As young children my brother and I attended the "early learning center" daycare for children of students and now as a college freshman I appreciate how nice the campus truly is. It has a wonderful gym complete with exercise equipment of all sorts, a pool, courts of all kinds and a rock wall. The student union building is also an excellent place on campus with food, games, a theater and bowling. There are always people on campus enjoying the grassy areas playing volleyball, soccer, ultimate Frisbee the list continues. I've always lived off of campus but the dorms seem pretty nice, though they are one of the more expensive experiences at Idaho State.
ISU has a lot of fun activities to do on campus. I wish they would invest in better teachers. They don't have a lot of places, they need updated. Their food options are poor. Safety is great, they are always there for you. Parking is the absolutely WORST! Overpriced & no space!
