Idaho State University offers students plenty of choices of study, I have seen nothing but successful graduates employed in the field of their choice, the tuition has no hidden agenda, and there are constantly opportunities to be familiarized with everything that is going on in the school and on campus!
Idaho State University also has a great reputation nationwide for the quality of education received! I am an individual studying psychology. in the state of Idaho alone, mental illness is the highest in the nation. Idaho State University is highly recommended in this field of study! It is greatly appreciated to have the opportunity to study at a school that is acknowledged for having a reputable course in a career in psychology.

Idaho State offers a an appreciated and recognized education and degrees, however the "college experience" would otherwise be considered lacking. Although I enjoyed my time at Idaho State, it felt very similar to high school due to the absence of good sports teams, party scene, and campus events. My professors were all very helpful when needed and my classes were for the most part organized. The education aspect of Idaho State university is excellent, in my opinion, I believe I gained a solid education and I feel equipped to further my self in my studies. The university offers a very wide range of programs and degrees, making it a very well rounded school for students of all desires. I would recommend this university to others based on the academics, but when considering the college life and experience I would not suggest this school.
My experience with Idaho State University has been fantastic! With all of the people I have met the atmosphere has been so friendly. All of my professors have been so helpful and making me want to achieve my goals. They push me to do my best and really give their own time to see each of their students succeed. My roommate is pretty great and the building manager in Schubert Heights is always available when we need him or someone is always available to help make our transition to college just a little bit easier.
